  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here . Remember: only 3 images each week!​
    To start off our week of EOS image thread I have here a shot I've entitled Death in the Adirondacks. Please post up to 3 shots of your own deathly or non-deathly shots.
  2. a photograph from Wednesday while the sun was still out full blast. The little black dude on the left was on the thistle first, the much larger bee with the gold markings was the interloper, flew in, landed beside the smaller one, stuck out its left foreleg and gave the little one a massive push. The little dude didn't give, he (she) raised its right foreleg and pushed back. The two of them spent the next 15 or 20 seconds pushing like hell against each other, doing that "loop your arm over the other guy's arm and shove him with your elbow" move, fighting for the advantage, while they worked their way across the flower......and both of em with head down foraging the entire time. The thistles are quickly going to puff-ball and disappearing on the wind, so there is immense pressure on all who forage on them to "get it while it's there
  3. Marin County Civic Center. Canon 6D / 24-105mm

  6. Here are some cricket photos from a match I attended last Thursday. Middlesex played somerset in the Royal London One-Day Cup at Lord's Cricket Ground.
    Somerset won.
    These were taken with a 7D+300/4+1.4X - I'm looking forward to trying out my 400/2.8 on some serious cricket
  7. Today I have three street portraits from our local Folk Festival. All shot with a 40D and an 85/1.8.
    Cheers! Jay

  15. With the Super Moon last weekend and the concurring high tide, the marshes on the Great South Bay are at their most beautiful.
  16. Yesterday was a "watershed moment" for Long Island with a record amount of rain in one day. The incoming cold front showed a bit of flare with an amazing sky last evening.
  17. There was only one other person on the beach to see this amazing sight.
  18. Great work this week, as always. I especially like Katherine's cloud photos.
    Here's a Boeing 757 on short final to LAX on a misty evening.
  19. Looks like Southwest is going to find the runway.
  20. This is when you get really tired.

    Katherine, that looks like a funnel cloud trying to develop, great capture....that same storm passed thru here the day before it got to you

    Dave, those plane shots are great, especially the one in fog....nicely done
    NASA building by the airport shortly after the first downpour
  24. Beautiful cloud photos Katherine.
    My contribution is from my balcony again, the flower keep flowering and attracting visitors;
  25. And another photo;
  26. The jazz singer
  27. back to the somewhat macabre theme
  28. Death of a Black Eyed Susan.
  29. Still getting used to my Rebel SL1. Much easier to carry around than a full sized DSLR. That makes me use it more.
  30. This has been around for decades.
  31. I really should get a book on flowers so I know what they are.
  32. Just before spring...
  33. Just back from evening country ride with new(to me) EF300mm f4L IS lens. Its going to take a bit of getting use to - hunts more than the EF 70-200 f4L IS if the background is the least bit cluttered, but I guess that's to be expected with the longer focal lenghth. 7D, ISO 400, f4, 1/25, EV- +1/3
  34. Happy Canon Thursday. These are all Canon 6D Canon 100-400 L shots
  35. Thom, Dave and Marcel, thanks for the compliments on my cloud images. Yes Thom, it was a wall cloud with a little bit of rotation, but way too lazy to become a tornado. It was fantastic to see the influx of the other clouds heading into it. Everyone's images on Canon Thursday are so inspirational to me, I really look forward to this every week!
  36. Gil: Really like your shot of the civic center. Nice leading lines, great composition.
  37. Katherine, wow!
    Adrian K, those are Echinacea....Cone Flowers.
    Bob Muckey, that 300mm f4 is a nice lens. You'll have a great time with it.
    We head into town a few times during the 10 days of Musikfest. Performances are on 15 stages spread across town all day and night. There's music that appeals to everyone and most is free. The first is a steam calliope that was playing in front of the under construction National Museum of Industrial History. The sound traveled for blocks down the street through the cavernous buildings that were once part of Bethlehem Steel, creating a surrealistic atmosphere.
  38. One of the best aspects of Musikfest is hearing music that one might not normally take in. Kuf Knotz played at a venue set up on Main Street.
  39. We worked our way through the crowd on a warm evening.
  40. [​IMG]Fox Harbour, sunrise.
  41. Adrian. They're Echinacea spp.
  42. Yesterday, these young people were toddlers. Next week, they are off to collage. Time....
  43. Thank you Laura and Robin!
  44. Found a new beer - a "red" IPA from Sierra Nevada.
  45. Focus stack of 108 pictures using 3 Kenko extension tubes on my Canon 20D (that finally died three weeks after this shoot). A non-IS version of the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens was on the end of the extension tubes which was then on a $20 Dot Line manual slide on top of my new Redged TSC-427K tripod and ballhead. I used Helicon Focus (method B) to stack the shots. I also used a Bower RCWC3R wireless shutter release.
