  • Were your pictures taken from the lake or on shore? Nice to see the view from across The Lake. Here are a couple from the North side of Lake Superior where there was a combination of ice pack and...
  • Okay Dean, perfect submission record for 2014 (so far). Too cold outside for flowers  so I went digging in the archives and found one from February 2011 taken in a warmer clime with what was a...
  • Thanks for the kind comments. To be honest the shot from the *ist D is more accurate in color, might have been able to bring the K-5 closer in color, but figured it was close enough. Haven't used...
  • Okay Dean, a flower a month? Well the only thing blooming here is the house flower growing inside, yesterday it was -17°F (-22°C) outside when I went to have my hair trimmed. In honor of the 10th...
  • Replied in Desert Birds
    Very, very nice, and thanks for the identification too! Bob
  • Hi Nick, Count me in! Sent separate email Bob
  • Nicely done and interesting use of three different cameras from Q to K3 and the 645D. Bob
  • ...because I didn't and don't own one, guess that would explain the problems with the fuzzy background. And yes, this is of one of those Northern Hemisphere flowers not fortunate enough to live in...

  • Lovely magnolia Dean, nothing like that here, actually can't remember when I saw a flower, oh, I guess I need to spend more time in the garden, there are a few roses hangin on even though we have...
  • 46 minutes and no replies and the original post remains at the top of the forum. Well executed (pun intended). You must be really old to have been there to take the photo. I know it must be...
  • Replied in FA 77 Ltd.
    Yes Dean, You are right, it was taken with the 77 Ltd., seems I'm always pleased with what that lens does and I guess it does have that vaunted 3D effect, but shooting during the "golden hour"...
  • Replied in Cardoon
    Hi Dean and Leo, Well Dean, It's your turn to enjoy the beauty of spring while those of us hanging onto the other side of the planet try to savor the last of the flower season as the frosts of fall...
  • A bit of a strange summer here in Minnesota. Today marks the opening of the Minnesota State Fair and that unofficially signals the end of summer and the start of the school year in early September....
  • Hi Leo, My cottage/cabin is located near Grand Marais, MN and the Lake is Lake Superior which has its own climate, cooler (colder?) in the Summer and warmer in the winter with all of the seasons...
  • Guess I should contribute a picture If I'm going to continue enjoying all of the floral bounty of others. Took a number of flower pictures last month but never got around to sharing any. Here's a...
  • Replied in I did it
    Great series. This is what photography is all about, these will stand the test of time, they will bring back memories for both of you! I Like the shadows in the first image and the warm light,...
  • Took the Bigma out to shoot some distant blossoms on one of my rose bushes (Canadian developed William Baffin), thought I had pruned things back enough, but with all of the rain the roses are...
  • We foreigners have the idea that Siberia must be always cold and devoid of flowers.(I guess many people have the same ideas about Minnesota). Here in southern Minnesota the Lilac (Syringa vulgaris)...
  • The soggy roses are drying out on a day of sun. More rain in the forecast tomorrow.With all the rain, how am I ever going to get time to check out the drip irrigation system that waters the weeds...
