DA18-55 from Calif. again:

Love those complementary colours. And any window that you can see mountains out of is a fine window to my mind.

What we've got is the granite stumps of things that were mountains millions of years ago (we call them tors). Still beautiful things to look at through a window though, although annoyingly none of my windows points in quite the right direction.

I should really take more photos up on the tops of tors, but I tend not to because:

A: It needs a wider angle lens than I've got available.
B: I'm too lazy to make the climb.

Thanks Dave. That was taken from the stairway hall inside my brothers new home. The empty field around the wash in the background will eventually be filled with more new homes.

I guess you could say that...

DA18-55 from Calif. again:

Ah! Facing the Santa Clarita "river".

I commute through that neighborhood once in a while when I'm trying to avoid the clog on the 118, 405, Balboa, 5, The Old Road, Foothill, & Sierra mess. I have to go up the 23 from the 101 all the way around through Fillmore & then take the 126 towards Santa Clarita. It usually ends up being much faster than trying to go through that mess around the 5 FWY.

Traffic in SoCal can be super ridiculous. Like that one time where it took me about 1.5 hours to cross Balboa from the 118 to the 5 FWY. It's normally a super quick 5 minute drive.........

Yup. We had to make a few trips to Camarillo from Fillmore - we would take one of those steep, twisty canyon roads connecting to the 118 to avoid the freeway traffic.

Closer to home, this was taken on an evening in April on one of our dogwalk routes. DA18-55:

It surprises me how many of my favourite images are with the K10D - but it was my first digital camera, and the one I got back into photography with after a few years of not doing much, so maybe not so surprising in a way. Anyway, this is with the 50-200mm kit lens on a well known avenue of beech trees in Dorset UK.

Love it! This is what the K10D is all about. I have a similar, but not nearly-as-nice image taken with the same gear (DAL 50-200) From mid-November 2014:
