Very nice. I have a very clean Spotmatic SPII, but it needs some attention before I can shoot with it again. Why not grab an M42 adapter (I recommend the genuine Asahi Pentax one) and try it on the K10D. Loads of fun

I was too late to know this camera and missed it, my first Pentax DSLR was the K20D and I loved it, I believe the K10D worked the similar way so I will feel no stranger. I am retiring my K3MK1 after near 10yrs. of service and it still ticking, I was planning to get a KP instead of the MK3, now I may change the plan to get the K10D instead, or both. I really interested to try out the CCD, look at the high color saturation reminded me of reversal film, not quite high contrast but similar, and has a more 3D look to it. One other reason I want to try CCD camera beside the color, it is the absent of rolling shutter, wonder if anyone has done a test on this to compare with CMOS one ?

So you have a Winter-pani ? Lovely rich blue skies, and I've always thought the bare Frangipanis are quite architectural. One the few deciduous things we get up here.

We haven't seen many blue skies through this very wet summer but when we have the colour has been intense. Took this quickly one afternoon using an old preset version of a Promura 35mm f3.5. Cleaned front and rear element after this and have been getting slightly better and more consistent definition, but liked this picture for the colour in the sky, the flowering bottlebrush, and the old mildew coated school bus;

Lovely light & colors, Richard. I don't think I've ever seen a bottlebrush tree as big as that one!

Thank you, Richard. I do like the way the K10D renders nice blue skies. I also had the 18-135mm on that day and that is unusual as it is normally welded onto the K-3.

We have also suffered from a lack of blue skies this summer so I made the most of what was available.

The old school bus adds a hint of mystery to your image. And I agree with Paul. That is an unusually large bottlebrush.

Going by the bark and form as well as flower shape and colour I'd say it's a Melaleuca (genus) rather than one of the Callistemon varieties more commonly sold in nurseries. The Melaleucas tend to be bigger and less shrubby in form, but both genera share that distinctive bottle brush flower form. The Melaleucas have than thin, peeling, layered paper bark, and are especially important in wetland areas in ecological terms. That bark allows them to thrive in the waterlogged conditions and they help hold the soil together, provide a framework for and feed other life, and filter the water in those wetlands. They are found from alpine bogs through to coastal areas across the country.

As you'll know Ray there's a lot more to our endemic flora than gum trees, and I would miss these things sorely if they were to disappear. At the rate we are going they might just do that in coming years. They are unique, and growing up with them they become a part of you.

old school bus
I thought so too Ray . They have a large yard with a lot of leftovers from stacks of tyres to theatrical backdrops, and several sheds. I get a clear view from the upstairs windows, and am guessing they contracted for the local school run services several decades ago. These days there are still several companies contracting for these services, but I've never seen individual contractors.
