A very dull December day
3

One of my favourite hikes, part of the route Saint Jaques de Compostello. It was a very dull morning but I did not want to brighten the pictures too much. I love this time of year.

Hi Gary

I've just read "Immortelle randonnée", by Jean Christophe Rufin. It's a kind of diary about his hike to Saint Jacques de Compostelle. Very interesting. I'm a bit too old to do this kind of hike, unfortunately...

Nice pictures, that fit well with the season.

Wooden arch...V1
5

Took the V1 + 10-30 PD for a walk on the beach. Weather was rainy.

I came accross this tree trunk, brought by the storm of the previous days.

The first image gives an idea of its size.

In the second, it looks like an arch. The rendering is very different depending on whether you look in color or in black and white.

C&C welcome

Great skies André, and that is a very brave soul out on his board, I also try not to let the weather deter me from walking. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Gary. It's very cold here, with strong wind. It didn't deter me from windsurfing yesterday. But it starts to get difficult when it's this cold....

That's quite the log. I like both the color and B&W versions.

Waiting the the lobby

While my wife was busy with an appointment I explored the lobby of the building with a J5 and 10-30PD.

Lovely shot of a fantastic ceramic ball! Looks quite big, is it?! The background is perfect as well!

This is typical native American pueblo pottery, although I don't recognize which pueblo. It  has an open top. For size check out the stairway shots - the pot is near the top right.

I only realized after I'd processed this that it is a nice contrast of curves on the pot with the sharp angular shelf where it sits.

I really like this photo. A very nice composition, and I like the colors too. Really excellent.

The first one is nice too, but why did you use an F8 aperture? Were you afraid of not having enough depth of field?

Thanks.

Yes, I was worried about DoF as I wanted the stairs in focus top to bottom. I couldn't judge that very well on the small screen so I stopped down to f/8.

Cobwebs

Walking early in the morning I found lots of cobwebs covered in dew:

Re: Waiting the the lobby

These are really interesting. I often use f8 when I want everything in the scene in focus, it has worked really well in your shots. Thanks for posting, fascinating!

Nice pics. The last two are my favorites. Maybe I would crop it to remove the trunk on the left. Maybe even the whole tree, leaving only the leaf and the thread.The nice background tell us where we are.

Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Re: Cobwebs

A very nice set of photos. We don't get morning dew like this here in AZ, but I remember it from my prior days back east. Thanks for reminding me how special it can be.

Some more shots with the LED lamps.

Two apples, the front one much smaller than the rear!

A friend did this massive carving of a Long-Tailed Duck many years ago, full size.

No denoising, handheld J5, my 8mm lens.

Nicely done, iserp

Re: Wooden arch...V1

All the twists, knots on that tree trunk looks like it has been through a lot while it was alive and in the end returning to the earth.

Conditions sounds like Vancouver. We've been battered by storms and only after three weeks things slowly recovering. I see windsurfers on the water here in the winter and often wonder how brave they are. Maybe a good dry suit helps.
