False spring on Hanlon Creek
2

Today felt like a spring day, but those of us who have lived in this region for a while know that winter is just taunting us. We have many cold days to go before the real spring arrives.

The weather has been grey and gloomy lately, so I didn't miss the chance to visit the creek when the sun came out in the later afternoon. During the real spring, there will be a lot more water here from all the melting snow.

The grass is dead for now, but the hummock will be back soon

Fuji GFX 50R and Schneider-Kreuznach Componon-S 180mm f/5.6. Toyo VX23D provided the tilt.

This Componon-S 180/5.6 was up for sale recently because I couldn't control the veiling flare even with extensions on the hood. It dawned on me that I need to control the flare from the back end. The huge image circle was sending stray light all over the place. A simple baffle inserted in the adapter, and I now have an extremely sharp (and cheap) 180mm lens that shifts 20mm without breaking a sweat.
