Wow! I'm often up at that time of day but you really captured the moment!
Awesome pics FP!
I really like that first one, though.

i just got back from a family vacation up to northern CA...first congrats to DRN for the awesome winning image last week - i LOVE that blue feather abstract!

The submissions so far this week are stellar.

@Pablo - every last one of these is good, but Tracks really looks spectacular! I love the composition and retro looking processing here...this reminds me of a 1960's postcard...well done.

@Jimbo - wow, last week you lit up those ferns with magic and this week you've gone a cut above. My favorites of the lot are "Under The Bridge" and "Tall Growth". What you are doing with moving water is very inspiring and the bonus of the sunlight breaking through at the top of the image really balances out the lighting. The wide angle perspective distortion of the tall trees really accentuates their size in the latter image. really wonderful captures.


@FP - really nice job capturing the short lived colors of morning. if i'd known there is sometimes light like this at sunrise, i'd try to go to bed a little earlier. :) great stuff, Frank!

@RM - that 3rd photo of the museum where you married the panes of glass from one part of the building with the sections of the other part is really lovely. very nice architectural image here.

FP - very nice effort for your effort. I'm a morning kinda guy and you've found the best time of the day. Love the nicely controlled sunstar there. Very cool.

I've been holding off after hosting last week but I can't help myself. Here are a few from me.

Encore - Encore! We attended an outdoor evening of blue grass+ music tonight with two bands, the headliner being Hot Buttered Rum. At the end of the evening, in response to calls for more, both bands came back on stage and asked the audience to come 'real close' to the stage because they were going to do an all acoustic with no mikes or nothing. It was very cool and although I had to shoot at 6400ISO, I got the shot with the kit lens hand held at 1/10 of a sec.

Up the creek with a paddle. With my brother-in-law along for the trip we paddled up a creek...er...with a paddle! This was Paper Mill Creek in Pt. Reyes Station, California. We went as far up the creek as we could go until too much debris blocked the way. Water varied from deep to a couple of inches. We had to get out of the boats a number of times. It was a good exploration but sea kayaks were not to best vehicle for this trip. Very nice day.

Decay. Old decaying hen house in the countryside.

A cheap P&S camera, two motorcycles, and a lust for adventure. Two days, 800 miles, including Sonora Pass, Monitor Pass, Tioga Pass, and miles and miles of empty roads.

Thanks, actually I was in my own kayak in the middle of the river and that was with the DA 18-55 WR kit lens...I wish it had been the DA*16-50. Not on this trip.

@SF-Frank: Nice shots. I LOVE 395 and in particular the Sonora Pass / Bridgeport area. The Eastern Sierra is beautiful. Brings back lots of memories. Thanks.

It is supposed to be 10* warmer than normal this weekend.
I'm not complaining. I like it warm.

Beats the hell out of shoveling snow. :~(
