Like it. Simple. Void of distractions.

I imagine If I was standing there I would be squinting at that distant horizon too.
Thanks - it was a challenging day for me out there. The area is pretty plain & barren with not a lot of interesting subjects! But it was a good exercise & I did get a few keepers.

A little bit of trespassing required to get this one
Estate agent (Realtor Agent) speak for that would be if it were here, "desirable detached residence, situated in extensive mature grounds with many mature trees, multiple aspect windows, insulated timber clad construction and would benefit from some cosmetic and sympathetic redecoration".

Ha! I think you might have a new vocation. And you can add to that "Handyman's dream!".

I have managed to acquire 4 x K10D 's and I prefer them to my K500.
Each is fitted with a different lens and I am learning much from using these 'mature'
cameras.
if the qualification for this Club is a K10D - then I might just qualify.

Welcome! Why stop with 4?

That is indeed another great thing about the K10D these days -- they're cheap. More and more I'm going back to it as my primary camera and leaving the K-5 for when I need it for something particular. I've long been thinking about picking up a second K10D and why not a third as well? I've long been interested in an IR converted camera.

I had one of my bodies converted to full spectrum to use for astrophotography and IR as well. Now I've modified that body a lot more so it's unlikely to be used for IR again, so I might get another done.

The K10D has a great sensor for IR. The challenge is that without live view, you'll have to focus using marks on the lens and thus it helps to use older primes.

Here are a few examples of what it can do:

Even if she had a seat belt one I doubt that you get away with that down here. But you have not broken the law by taking that great shot.

Thanks Stephen. I'm in awe of your full-spectrum sensor-cooled K10D and the results you get from it. True about live view, but older primes are what I mainly use so no problem there.

I have a K-10 but it's been gathering dust and I've been using my K-01 and K-7 but think I need to resurrect it and start using it again. I remember taking several IR photos with it.
