Itinerary is taking shape. Plan is to fly in to Boston on or around Oct 8... we are thinking 7 - 10 days spread over a few locations (max 3) starting with Bangor / Acadia and points west & south of there.
We have decided to fly in from Las Vegas where we will be starting & ending a 3 week run of Canyons and Parks, going as far north as Yellowstone. Boston seems a logical place to us to fly into, given its history...but open to suggestions, not keen on New York. Perhaps Albany ?

Back again.
Poor health intervened in this plan...but it is now back on again. ...with a twist. I gave a presentation locally on my US meanderings and now a local camera club I am a member of wants to do it, so a mob (11 have put their hands up and expect a few more, max 16) of (mostly) retired shutterbugs are headed your way. Looking at Sept Oct 2018.
What I would really appreciate from you guys and gals is a heads up on any Lodges etc for accommodation in that Maine / New England area. Thinking 5 nights.

As the un-educated one on this forum I just have to ask....what books ?
Is the first shot (which I really like) green screen ?

What started out from disgust at the crap being shown on TV one evening ("reality" TV....mindless rubbish) and going for a drive in the hope that nature may do something worth watching......resulted in this. It lasted for the best part of an hour, actually started from very little...but then just kept coming. Awesome show that had me spell bound.

Converters from Nikon or Canon to Pentax mount

Yep. Glass type tc.
Refund received. Have contacted B&H asking about their FotodioX product. If anyone here has any experiences with the FotodioX adapter I would appreciate hearing them. Looking to use it with Pentax DA14, DA 21, DFA 100, Sigma EX DG 24 f 1.8 on a Nikon D800. The ebay one I have returned would not lock the these lenses into position, and as you had to use them in full manual mode, when ever you adjusted the aperture ring, the lens would turn and come off.

Yep...all good advice. Sitting here negotiating a return of a K mount to Nikon F adapter to an ebay supplier right now. It fits on the Nikon just fine....but the Pentax lenses either will not fit at all or do not lock in position, turning around in the mount at will. So its going back. B&H have one that seems to get reasonable reviews, so if I get my money back I will check that out.

I have used Sigma 70-200 f2.8 & Tamron equivalent, I preferred the results from the Sigma, but the Tamron was lighter to carry. The Pentax 60-250 would be a better focal length. Digitalis' reccommendation of the Sigma 100-300 should be considered...as should the purchase of the TC 1.4....which I use with the DA*300, and that is a good combo, but you are limited by the fixed focal length, if thats an issue for you.
Happy hunting.

No, Pentax can not do sports at all. No doubt about it, just gotta listen to anyone who doesn't own one.
Now, hope you guys and gals appreciate the effort that has gone into this shot. Firstly I had to kidnap the statue and then put in an acrylic post in the water, which was way over my head, and then attach the statue, which weighed a lot, all the time balancing in my canoe.:hmm:..I kid you not folks, a herculean effort has gone into this. :cool:
Hope you enjoy.
