<p>Thanks, Bob. Wonderful colors in your shots. Next time I'm at Lake Tahoe, I need to dedicate a couple sunrise/sunsets. Didn't have that chance this time, but we'll likely be back at some point (relatives live in the area).</p>

<p>One more for the week, bumblebees feasting on the sedum plants in our back yard. Pentax K20D, Tamron 90mm macro.<br>

<p>Yesterday (Saturday) I went on another photohike to Mt. Rainier National Park. This time a shooter friend and I hiked the Naches Peak loop which is just off Chinook Pass on the NE part of the park and about 5900 feet high. This is THE autumn color hike in the park. Since most of our trees are conifers, the really special autumn colors in the mountains come from the ground on up. Wild huckleberry and blueberry fields abound and turn incredible saturated reds, yellow, and purples. Throw in dried flower pods and bright sunlight and it's a visual feast. Just bring an ND filter and maybe a Polarizer too.</p>

<p>Here are three quick ones--the sun was right overhead but there was enough there for our shooting pleasure. Plus it was 67 degrees. Yahoo!</p>

<p>Well last night, with a tear in my eye, I handed over my K10D to my sister. I hope I will still be welcomed here on the Pentax forum even though my only camera now is a Canon 50D. I DO plan to purchase another Pentax SOON so I am asking for leniency. My first shot was taken with the K10D last weekend in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum. The second, yesterday with the Canon.</p><div>00UawL-176003584.jpg.b56b680011706fabf276bcc32fe1f96f.jpg</div>

<p>It all looks good to me so far. A few thoughts:<br>

Bob M - lovely sunsets<br>

Steve T - great shot of the bees! Impressive DOF.<br>

Camus - that's quite a hill, or is the shot a bit tilted?<br>

Robert B the snake is great, something of a 3d effect<br>

Hin I really like the sun flare in your last shot.</p>
