    Happy Thursday everyone! It's way past my bedtime so I'm going to be quick and get this show on the road. Lots of great photos so far in 2013, let's keep it up! I haven't taken any this week as I've been swamped with getting settled into school so here's an oldie.

    Some of the kids in Ian's photos are going to turn into the grownups in my photos. Well at least one or two of them.

  11. Jake, all three of your landscapes are beautiful, but the first is spectacular. Well done.
  12. Just a couple from my last trip. Washington DC and Maui. Cheers.
  13. This was the better part of the trip.
  14. Stellar photos so far. Jeff, they better start taking gymnastics classes now to be able to do what your guy did! Ash-throated Flycatcher with rented lens.
  15. Thanks Dennis, much appreciated.
  16. A beautiful weekend in Vancouver this week, and it was a pleasure to carry the camera without rain covers.
  17. And looking down, early in the morning while the frost was still on the grass was well worth it as well.
  18. Great start this week!
    Jake, love the night time photos.
    Dennis, great sandies in flight!
    Brad, love the whimsical look on this guy's face.
    Phil, did we buy a new lens? I'm jealous! Love that background.
    It was 77 degrees in Charleston, SC last weekend. Perfect weather for an engagement shoot. Outtake.
  19. Server timeout...again.
  20. Last light on the River Thames
    7D+300/4+1.4x, iso-400, 1/160, f5.6 -1/3ev
  21. Here's mine for the week...
  22. I've been trying to photograph the birds on my feeders. But somehow they disapear as soon as i point the camara. Here's a feeble attemt from inside the house. Looks like they wait till that anoying guy with the camera has left for work..
    I will keep trying..
  23. so, here's some leftovers from the art project.
  24. and she's supposed to be a goat.. was hopping around the garden..
  25. A new student on the campus of Haverford College.
  26. Jake H - Super snow scenes; Phil R - another great take on the ash-throated flycatcher against a creamy BG; Mark K - Nice B&W, BTW I had lots of trouble with timeouts and Gateway errors using IE9 - I switched to Chrome and it works faster and every time.
    Not shot anything much this week, so here is a pic of a Galapagos Hawk (Isabela Island) with a trace of breakfast on its beak.
    7D / EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM at 310mm; 1/640s @ F/5.6 ISO 800.

  34. Jake-A beautiful landscape
    5DMK2, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro, ISO100
  35. Nothing too special this week. A walk by the frozen river turned up this.
  36. Just a squirrel.
  37. Will try this again.
  38. Not in anticipation, this time
  39. Thank you Rick and Mark for the nice words. No, Mark, no new lens. I rented the 600 one time for a couple of days. Took it to a couple of local places and also tried the moon. Love the results, but it slows me down. I handheld it (except for the moon), which is my preferred style, and at almost 12 pounds, it got a little heavy after a while.

    'A Drop of Sun'
    “A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
    ― John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

    My favorite barn, S. Ironwood Drive, St. Joseph County, Indiana.

    This is the first photo that I took with my new ultra-wide angle lens, a Tamron SP AF 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD

  42. First we had popcorn snow then the following day had some lake effect snow which brought us the beautiful snowflakes. It made me realize how nice it would be to have a good macro lens as these took a lot of sharpening. 7D with extension tubes and my old Olympus 75-150 zoom.
  43. Using the instructions on Strobist I built my own light tent out of an old carboard box, some tracing paper, and some posterboard for the backdrop. I have only had time for a couple of quick test shots. Here's a portrait of a Lego minifigure.
    XSi, 18-55 is with 20mm Kenko extension tube, f/7.1, 1/80 s, 540EZ flash off camera.
