Clouds were coming in fast so I only had time to make a quick run up a trail to a rocky outcrop looking out on the St.Lawrence river where Jupiter and Saturn imposed themselves as the subject of my picture. A blend of two 60 s shot iso 1600 with K-70 using the Samyang 16mm F2 @ f/2.0.

Thematic Farming - Agriculture

Rouge Valley is a place forgotten by time. Only small farms here. Some owners are getting old and some farms don't look quite as active as they used to be. The Rouge river left lots of sand deposits in between two laurentians rocky outcrops so farms are isolated from the more dynamic laurentians lowlands further east. I took the picture from the ground of a buddhist temple, hence the statues in the front.

Thanks! I was glad to have the 50-135 mounted, other lenses may not have yielded such good results!



Many thanks! Yes the trees look awfully close in front of the plane on that shot. Looking at the map they are roughly 400 m in front of the plane!



16000 lbs or water! Must make one hell of a splash!

Thanks! Glad you like them!



Thanks! Indeed I was lucky to be in the right spot with a clear view of the action and with the wind blowing smoke in the right direction making everything look so dramatic!

A few shots from last weekend when a forest fire got put out by a CL-415. It was quite impressive as the plane flew so close to our position, I can see the pilot waving back at my kids in one ot the shots I took!

Really happy with how the 50-135 still performs after years of abuse.

Thanks! The Double Fog 3 filter from Tiffen is a diffuser that bloats the brightest stars and dims the fainter one giving more "depth" to the image at the cost of loosing some details in the MW itself. There is a PS plugin called Starspike pro 4 that mimics the effect of the filter, that's why I say spiking the stars.

Beautiful! I went up there after seeing the eclipse in Nebraska in 2017 and I remember thinking that my K-5 had broken because I could barely see the MW on a 60s astrotracer shot at iso 400 and f/2! That was just the sky being a thousand times darker than my Montreal area locations!

Thanks!


Thanks! My pleasure!


Thanks! Not really sure when the next time will be for that but after a quick check on time and date there's nothing like that for the next ten years at least.

Went to the highest point in Montreal to get a clear horizon for the rising sun with the moon already eclipsing some of it.

All done with very old Pentax material that can still deliver! No solar filter.

SDM failure

Both my 16-50 and 50-135 failed 4 years ago. On my K-30 they would just freeze up, or go only one direction and finally no movement at all. I was ready to have them converted when I just decided to put them on my K-5 with a fully charged D-Li90 battery. It woke them up! The 16-50 has fully recovered but I still put it back on my K-5 from time to time. The 50-135 needs waking up with the K-5 every month. It's been four years now and I'm still enjoying the silent sdm crossing my fingers.

Really like the 4k time lapse movie of the K-70, makes my life a lot easier for shooting meteors. This is one frame out of 800 (two movies) I did that night.
