TODAY! :-) - a couple of minutes ago.

Just the 18-55 kit; the only lens I have.

I took these just a couple of minutes ago. The view from front of our place. No interesting street shooting or architectural delights round these parts! But great landscapes.

Ps , thanks for commenting so nicely on my panorama. Always tricky to get the exposure spot on. And the NEX seems to cut the top and bottom off the image, so it's not so easy to get good ones!

Great shot Danny. Especially amazing since there's no way to have known he was going to flip that crab right then. Somehow you seem to do this over and over. So... Are you telling these birds to perform their money-shot stunt on command?! Must be using mind control!!

I will be traveling and taking  scenic photgraphs  this summer. It's not my forte' so I'll be trying panorama's like this too.   You managed to get the right lighting.   I hope to get some similar and will try the kit lens too. Thanks!

certainly there's a little aforethought needed with the NEX 5N, it defaults to some kind of auto mode to to the panoramas, so you need to half press the shutter on the optimum part of the start point of the panorama keeping in mind how the light changes during the panorama.

Sounds more complex than it is! As with everything, trial and error!
