Here are four more from my current favorite location (Smoke Tree Point).
All taken between 6:02 and 6:46 last evening as a storm was clearing.
All at 450mm, f/8, on a tripod, and utilizing PS. One of them is cropped to 16:9.
Oh, and captured with the K1.

Very nice shots. Of course, it looks similar to our Porcupines here in the states. I notice one of the quills has red on it. Blood perhaps?

Proof that Pentax lenses are gold! Shot with the new 50mm f/1.4 on the K1.

Thanks. The dust really does a good job of hiding the details in the mountains/hills, which I think is what gives it that painterly look.

Thank you.

Thanks. I needed all of the 450mm with the KP to isolate those ridges/hills. My K1 on that lens would not have isolated as well I'm thinking.

Thanks, Todd.

Yes, this part of the Sonoran Desert is sparsely vegetated compared the other parts, so I really have to search for interesting shots. Thankfully, we have the Colorado River , so that helps.

This is a spot I like when it"s windy, because the dust accentuates the layers at sunset. Setting sun to the upper left, just out of frame. Hand held the KP, and focal length set at 450mm. Cropped to 16:9 only.

Find myself returning to this spot again and again to see how many different lighting situations I can capture. This day saw many puffy clouds about. These three shots were taken 16 minutes apart. I found it interesting how the passing clouds supplemented the existing layers. I just can't stop using the 150-450 for landscape shots.

Thanks. It was shock. I knew the bee was there, but had no idea it would bee (Ha!) in focus.

Thanks. I took 100+ bee photos that morning, but not with the intent of capturing a bee in them.

Thank you. It does look like a stand off. FYI I've been told recently by a wildlife biologist that a bee sting can kill a hummingbird.

Thank you. I recently retired and am spending all of my spare time out photographing, so that probably has a lot to do with my luck.

Was lucky to capture these two in focus while trying to get a decent in flight hummer shot. This is cropped of course, but it's still 2890X3540 pixels.

Really like the first one. Well framed and composed. I like the way you processed it too preserve the soft light.

Another one with the new KP & 150-450. First shot is not cropped. Second shot is 100% crop from first shot. 450mm, 1/555, f/8, ISO 100.

Lucky to have migratory birds visiting the pond behind our house this time of year.

Just acquired the KP (with vertical grip) yesterday specifically for use on the 150-450 for wildlife, and naturally couldn't wait to try it out. Shot from our back fence @ 450mm, f/8, 1/500th, ISO 100. Heavily cropped to almost 100%.

Scouted a nice location to shoot the Moonrise and Super Blood Moon last night and this shot shows the only time I saw the moon until after the eclipse. Oh well.

Anyone know of a good App for accurate sun & moon rise direction. I have two that are supposed to be good, but both are off by a several degrees. The ones I have are LightTrac &

200mm,100 ISO, 1/10th sec. @ f/8.

WPRESTO,

Thanks for the input.

For me, the cloud cover area, and the foreground shadow area balance each other out. But that's just. me. I will revisit the original the full frame though, now that you've mentioned it.

Thanks again.
