Wow--those are really special photographs. I love the last two especially. They positively shine in your image gallery (moreso than how they are rendered on Flickr, I think). I'm an oddball in that I'm not as much a fan of the blurred water as many are, but in these photos, I think it's just perfect. Your photographs convey that place so well (though I've never been there)--the cool shadows, the sound and spray of the water and the warmth of the sun where it's peaking through. They also show off your and the K5's technical capability--it's an outstanding combination!

Thanks for posting.

Thank you for the kind words.  I had never done flowing water quite like this before, so I am glad I got it right first try.  I had to use a stacked ND4 and circular polarizer to get a low enough shutter speed.  The K5 sure does rock, and the limited lenses shine too.
