*If you can provide details on the subject, camera, settings and processing, that would be great for people reviewing the images. *If you have more than 10+ images to share, please break them up into more than 1 posting.

Thanks for all participation whether seasoned pro or beginner… Don’t be reluctant even if you are new to Fuji.

The "Hammer!"
16

Hello Everyone,

Since the Southwest of the US is being drenched by monsoonal rains this week (very much needed) it reminded me of my trip to Utah 14 years ago. When my wife and I arrived at Bryce Canyon N.P. there was one heckuva thunderstorm occurring while we checked into the hotel. Once it ended we jumped back into the car and drove along the road. We stopped at a site called Thor’s hammer. Because the rocks were soaked they took on a more reddish hue.

At the time I had my Fuji APS-c camera with the 16-55/2.8…..but it was my S5 Pro with the Nikkor 16-55/2.8. BTW they are still together hanging over the chair just ti my right. The cam claimed 12mp but because of the array many deemed it only 8. However it made a nice 11x17 print. Wouldn’t mind being there now.

S5Pro, 16-55/2.8 14 years ago

keep ‘em comin’

How about a Fried Egg Jellyfish?

About two feet across.  I had no idea what it was or if it was alive, till it swam closer to the dock.

Beautiful set.  I have seen mostly exterior shots from Bodie, so this is a different take for me.

Interriors with XF 16/1.4

This holiday I visited nice small oceanarium. I found it has very nice architecture and interiors in the educational area. Fortunately I have 16/1.4 in my bag and the nature light was inspiring. This reminded my old times, when I was doing 3D visualizations for furniture adverts.

A sweet image Bob.  You took that photo very close to the place where one climbs out of the valley and it's quite a climb.  The hike through the hudus is one of my favorite hikes ever and one of the last trips that I had my Nikon gear.  After we rested a bit after the climb up, we got in the car and started to drive down and noticed snow on the ground that was not there when we arrived that June morning.  A few minutes later heavy hail and I had to pull over and wait for the marbles that had fallen from the sky as driving on marbles, even with a 4X4 is quite an adventure.

Re: A random walk in Brooklyn

Real nice set!  The view of the Manhattan Bridge is one of those photos that everyone takes and you did a nice job with it.  Will you be shooting this area on 9/11?

I have a photo of me standing at the base of that tree taken in 1979.  I see they have fenced it off so a photo like that is no longer possible.

Indeed.  I have many images of the hikes down into the hoodoo's.  The wonderful thing about those hikes is it seemed every turn and every step was a photo moment.  Perhaps I may post others from this trip as well as some from the other N.P. visited in Utah.

The elusive Green Heron
4

A big tip of the hat to Morris, who was kind enough to provide some tips for locations where this less common Heron species could be found in our area. It took a couple of trips and a fair amount of patience (which I could use a lot more of), but I was able to find the little guy along with a few Egrets at the one location in our area where this particular heron species resides. The light was challenging (particularly for the Egret), but I was pleased to finally find these very cool little birds.
