My stepdad's father's crashed Nieuport in 1918. He was in France, flying for the AEF (American Expeditionary Forces) at the time. I don't know the circumstances surrounding the crash, but he survived!

Not photographic. I have been suffering a nasty viral infection for three months and don't have the energy to go photo-ing. I have consoled myself with this ebay purchase of a Waterford 1980's cocktail glass.

maybe not what the doctor ordered but keeps me sane.

Nice Caracara shots, but it's not all doom and gloom for Pentax. Posting #29746 above (flight shot of immature Cooper's Hawk) was taken with the K-3 and DA* 300mm, and was cropped to about 15% of the frame, also an impulsive shot just after the bird had taken off. This one was another major crop, with the K-3, DA*300mm and 1.4x TC. It was taken during a 5-mile hike where weight and compactness was an issue. I may not get what I want every time, but my Pentax setup isn't a disaster by any means.

I'm looking forward to a successor, but I won't be trading my K-3 in any time soon.

My Samyang FE 35/2.8 should arrive today and this arrived yesterday:

Attachment 412483

Attachment 412487

With the tiny little Samyang and this beanpole of a lens, I'm well-prepared to demonstrate both the precision and the stackability of the LKU(/LKE).
I will have to procure some more, though...

My daughter loves rainbows. And on our holiday she was blessed with one, and I with an amazing photo-opportunity. Hope I captured it correctly.

I don't think I'm a contender for a K-1; the only limitation my K-3 has is the loose nut behind the viewfinder...

Cherry blossom season is here. A bit early this year I think. Went for the evening walk with M120 and M*300 today and took some wide open bokeh shots. Should have put some extension tubes on the 300 to get closer.

As for the it's too cold for electric cars reasoning: Norway is full of electric cars. I think they know a thing or two about cold weather. It's all an infrastructure thing, IMHO. If you can charge up your car anywhere, it's not a big issue. You park your car to go shopping, you plug it in. As it's plugged in, and probably has an internet connection, you could tell the car to warm up before you arrive there.

Setting up the infrastructure needed for electric cars should be much easier than for hydrogen or anything else, really. All you need is a strong enough power socket, and a place where you can place the charger (which doesn't take up much space, and in the grand scheme of things is much cheaper than a proper petrol station. A Tesla Supercharger Station is supposed to cost between 100.000 and 270.000 USD, while a hydrogen station would cost around 3 million USD. The only advantage hydrogen has there is that you need fewer of these stations. However, you could place single chargers everywhere around town, so you don't actually have to go out of your way to get your car filled up. And home owners with garage have no issue charging at home, which, if the range is big enough, is already enough to cover all their needs.

My big issue with electric is that it is a good solution for SOME use cases. However if you're not doing many miles, on a very predictable route (that is you stay within the range of the car, or can conveniently charge it up mid way), then it may not make sense. These batteries use valuable materials and are very expensive. Wasting them on a car that rarely gets driven could be worse for the environment than even the worst truck. Petrol cars (or hydrogen, perhaps) make much more sense here. Or long distance drivers. If you have to charge the car several times a day, which requires you to take a break, and you have to drive slower anyway because driving fast really isn't the specialty of electric cars, it just don't make much sense. With a modern diesel, I can easily do 1000 km before refilling it. Or drive significantly faster and refill it every 700-800 km... (a Golf 7 TDI 2.0 will do around 7-8 liter around 180-200 km/h, IIRC). Do that in a Tesla, and you'll be charging every 150-200 km probably, if you can even go that far, and if the electric drive train and battery pack won't overheat.

Wynyard Station, one of Sydney's busiest stations, has been refurbished. The very old wooden escalators were replaced with new ones but the old escalators were not sent to landfill but were repurposed as an art installation and attached to the ceiling.
The effect is quite stunning.

I went searching for owls this weekend
K3ii and DFA 150-450, handheld at 450, 23 degrees out and howling wind

Northern saw-whet owl


And I'm cheating here at 290 mm, but failing light, handheld, 16 degrees and near frostbitten fingers... Not bad for ISO 5000!
