645Z & A 120/4 Macro
Heh, heh....looks like you're going to like your Z and 120 combo, Dave....
That's a deceptively simple shot that, imo, is better in MF than 35.

Thanks, Tex! Yeah, I did put some thought into it and, yeah, I like that lens.

Hi Mattb 123. I actually shoot Nature/Wild Life, Architectural and Landscape/Seascape; but donít really have a formula to pull off birding with the Z. Generally, for Birding I shoot with other Birders who know the species and where and when to find them. Apart from that, I move around with all my gear, in the event a Birding or other photo opportunity presents itself I may at the least have a fraction of a chance to pull it off.
Thanks. I guess I was curious about what lens was used, if you used a blind, tripod/monopod, how close you were, and that sort of thing.

May the horse be with you. From last evening at a local equestrian ranch:

May the Horse be with You
645Z & FA150/2.8

a very rare handheld photo from me. I pretty much never take it off the tripod, but needed to avoid an irregular fence obstacle with a moving horse, so adapted to the situation at hand.

You need a walking-around camera!

Hi Mattb 123. Lens used was FA 400mm at f/8. Most times I shoot using a tripod; there are rare occasions I shoot handheld. This particular species was about 25 feet away from the lens.

After one of the rare storms that lasts long enough to actually deposit some water these trickle falls show up in Red Rock Canyon.






Like that first shot especially.

Went out this afternoon/evening with Mark Littlejohn (Mark LJ on here) around Holme Fell in the Lake District.

Pentax 645Z FA 75 f/2.8

1.



2.



3.



4.



5.

Can't tell which one between 3 & 4 I like best---the blueness of the middle ground is striking, against the yellow green and tawny colors of the foreground.

Bit of a flat lighting weekend here but still out playing.



645D and A35mm
Actually, in this case I think the flat light helps the subtlety of the colors.

So Matt, here's my big problem with the first 2 photos, and others you've posted: Do I use the camera or the fly rod...? It's a tough one....

Knowing that whichever you choose, there will be moments when you wish you'd made the other choice.

Well I think I'm better at photography than fly fishing so I stuck with with that. But my dog almost pulled a big trout out of there that was splashing around in the shallows!

I had/have a cousin in Scotland who could catch trout with his bare hands, as he demonstrated in a local stream (it took him less than 5-minutes to pull out a sizable specimen). He called it 'giein' fer trout'. At least that's what it sounded like. I had no idea what he was saying half the time.

I probably could have grabbed this one but I didn't want to get my hands all fishy while handing my camera!
