  • I like my 8-25.  I've had it for a few months and used it heavily.  I also have the 7-14 and I much prefer the 8-25.  Rich
  • So green and beautiful, Roy.  Be careful of that toe.  Rich

    Thanks, Jim.  The light was nice for the first one.  It changed just after and got dull.  The mouth of Humboldt Bay is great for waves, if you stay up on the dunes. The lens IS and IBIS working ...
  • I got this one, Andrew.  It is very soft and very deep.  I like it.  Rich https://www.ebay.com/itm/175303689744?hash=item28d0ea0610:g:YVMAAOSwh6dipxVv&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAABIMtzNSvFtjfagjwd410j6tKr0 ...
  • I like that golden light, Dave.  It really makes the landscape beautiful.  I like the second picture best.  It's a lovely composition.  Rich

    Thanks, Andrew.  We have a National Weather Service warning for sneaker waves today.  Those are the ones that get people.  They are not regular and waiting for one with a camera requires a picnic ...

    Hi, Craig.  I haven't found a mickey of Royal Gate for a while.  Rich

    I've always liked to go out in the rain, Dave. There was very little rain where I grew up and I liked going out in it. When I got my first motorcycle I started riding in the rain. Those college ...
  • Did you get the large, soft eyecup for your OM 1, Andrew?  I find it helpful when I press the camera hard against my face, either for steadiness, or to block out bright light coming from a ...

    Walking on Woodley Island, looking across the channel at Mainland Eureka.  There's some activity out there. The guy in the boat has a megaphone and is yelling orders and criticism at a group of ...
  • I like these all, Andrew. They're colorful birds and they look fat and healthy. Through the glass doesn't soften them too much. I like the creamy bokeh, too. I like the red bellied woodpeckers but ...
  • Nope, it didn't make me uncomfortable, WhyNot. I reacted because it made me think wistfully of a time when there was less suspicion. Mostly because there were a lot less people. I made this picture ...
  • My point was not about us doing anything wrong, WhyNot.  It was about overreaction and false accusation.  Rich

    Thanks, Craig.  Covid interrupted my coverage of the axe-wielding ladies.  Last year they were back and I went to photograph them, but the crowd was too dense.  Here, we still have a few deaths ...

    Thanks, Dave. I can tell you that down in the deep, when the octopuses are playing hide the salami, the female eats the male while they are mating, just after she gets what she wants. If the male ...

    Thank you, Andrew.  I hope you will read the exchange WhyNot and I just had above.  I'd like to hear your take on this, and anybody else's.  Rich

    And you might get an unpleasant surprise, WhyNot.  If a teacher lets an unknown photographer make pictures of the kids that teacher would be in deep doo doo.  If it is in a place where lots of ...
  • I like em, Joe.  Especially Twilight Time and the grumpy bird.  But the heron out on the bluff is my favorite.  I'd call that one 'Peace.'  Rich
  • Replied in Marine Lab
    Thanks, WhyNot.  This aquarium is nice because I never have to deal with crowds to get pictures.  Sometimes an elementary school teacher will bring a class, but I can go to the pier for pictures ...

    Thanks, Joe.  I left me in because my face didn't show.  I took me out of #9 because my face was visible.  Consider yourself lucky.  :-D   Rich
