This one has bugged me for what seems like years - there is simply no light in this area and the distant trees always burn out. Maybe this is the best I'm going to get...

Nature Joshua Trees in Full Bloom
Posted By Bob Harris

This year has been a banner year to view the Joshua in bloom as the moisture content was perfect and large blooms are now present in most of the Mojave Desert that we have visited. The Joshua Tree has bell-shaped blooms, 1.25 to 1.5 inches large, each with 6 creamy, yellow-green sepals, crowded into 12 to 18 inch, many-branched clusters with an unpleasant odor. The trees bloom mostly in the spring, although not all of them will flower annually. Joshua Trees (and most other yuccas) rely on the female Pronuba Moth for pollination. No other insect or animal visiting the blooms transfers the pollen from one flower to another. In fact, the female Yucca Moth has evolved special organs to collect and distribute the pollen onto the surface of the flower. She lays her eggs in the flowers' ovaries, and when the larvae hatch, they feed on the yucca seeds. Without the moth's pollination, the Joshua Tree could not reproduce, nor could the moth, whose larvae would have no seeds to eat. Although an old Joshua Trees can sprout new plants from its roots, only the seeds produced in pollinated flowers can scatter far enough to establish a new stand. The fruit is elliptical and green-brown and can be seen in photo 4, a photo taken at night to better show the fruit. Six-celled, 2.5 to 4 inches, and somewhat fleshy, it dries and falls soon after maturity in late spring revealing many flat seeds. The last photo is of the Joshua and Yucca plants before bloom.

Took this photo last night along with few other frames. I would love to hear what you guys here at Pentax forum think....

By the way - the ISO speed was 1250 not 1600 but the system doesn't allow me to select that.

Single Malt Whisky - more productive than talking about the "K-3"

I think that brown booze drinkers can be divided into two camps, the scotch lovers and the bourbon fools. I don't mean that in a negative way. The drinks are very different stuff; one rather buttery/smokey/carmelish and the other sweeter, hotter and slightly woody. I enjoy both, but in different settings. In an old west bar in Arizona with one boot up on the brass bar for support it's straight bourbon from a shot glass with a water back. In front of a smoldering fire sat in a stone fireplace with the snow swirling outside it's single malt scotch, neat. At a giggling cocktail party while leering at the beautiful young women who are falling out of their dresses, it's blended scotch on the rocks with a dash of soda. While sitting in an easy chair wearing a fragrant flannel plaid shirt chatting with a few buddies after shooting birds all day long it's an Old Fashion made with rye. In front of the TV watching the evening newscast it's a very cold martini, not too dry - no salad. I need strong drink to fend off the affect of the rotten news. Wine with dinner. I try to not drink after dinner and I don't start until 4:30 or 5. Beer used to be mother's milk to me, but now I can barely stomach the stuff. It's a young man's drink and when I was young man I did just that.

I love to drink but I hate being drunk. So I ease into it and don't chug my drinks. I drink slowly and can nurse a martini for an hour or more. Of course when I make a martini you can swim laps in it, or skin dive. I very seldom drink two.

I avoid drinks that taste like something other than what they are. Screwdrivers for instance. They taste wonderful and you can hide a lot of vodka in there and one tends to power drink them. Not a good idea. Some rum punches are the same. I want my booze to taste like booze and then I'll be more careful with it. Remember the Purple Passion we drank when were were college kids? I don't do that any more. I don't want to do that anymore.

The back bar at Virginia City, Nevada. It's a nice, historic place. The setting calls for a blast of that Old Granddad that you see there. My old grand dad drank Old Granddad and I do to in his memory.

The thread that has all sorts of speculation about the SOON to be announced Pentax FF (well, one of the latest ones) has some nice discussion in it of something real and worth discussing - Single Malt Whisky.

So, what's your preference among the water of life?

Architecture BBC Studios - end of an era

So I recently had the opportunity to visit BBC's famous shepherds bush studios in London as the site is due to close. I believe some of the studios themselves will still be in use but a lot of the other buildings are to be re-developed for other use.

Pics taken with my trusty K-5, Tamron 10-25 and Samyang 8mm.

The sun really does shine out of it. :) (where's the little icon with the beating heart.......ohhhhhh). :lol:

Apologies to Eaglem for hijacking this thread....but as Bob said and bullitt has thrown fuel at....this IS war.

Here's a couple more of the best car ever built in Australia........(where is that little heart thingy ????)

Yep....everything is where it SHOULD be.

A face every mother loves. I currently have a bushfire burning a few hundred metres behind me and a thunderstorm brewing in the background of this shot, thus the slightly surreal color cast. Money is on the thunderstorm.

You'll be happy to hear that I've found a fix/workaround for this issue and I just implemented it. There should no longer be a limit on the number of likes you can issue per user, and BTW, I wouldn't let this technical glitch ruin your day ;)

I've been a member here for a good long while, though not very active. I've mostly been using other gear. but when I acquired the K-01, I stepped back in, mostly in that venue. Today while browsing the photos, I "liked" a few, but then was told that I must " spread it around". Refused my "like". I refuse to be told what I can like, and what I cannot. That is not freedom.

So I will log out now, and wish every one a very good day.

Not angry, just very disappointed,

I bought this body and lens cap. I don't know if it's the same as the one crewl1 linked (mine didn't say JJC on the packaging), but mine at least sits very securely (can't be removed without pressing the lens release button) and works well as a base for adapting lenses too. (I've bought six of them so far.)
