Nice save Vinz. Have you tried rotating and cropping the image so her eyes are level? I think that way, she wouldn't appear to be leaning back some.

Another big post from this weekend's adventure here in the great state of Idaho.

Annual fly fishing trip in to Big Creek in the Frank Church wilderness this past weekend. My buddy Tor is a backcountry pilot here in west central Idaho. Really pretty place with ultra rugged terrain. Caught a million westslope cutthroat with most being >17 inches or so. Unfortunately I didn't get a single fish pic!

Here's the approach to Dewey Moore airstrip. Not much room for error!

Nothing like flying right into the sun while trying to make a critical maneuver! The landing is a hard right bank turn into the flat area up on the right.

Killer tones and colors. My favorite feature David is the reflection.

I look at the transformation Vinz and wonder how many hours you have devoted to portrait development techniques. The hours invested show.

Love the shots from the plane. The landing reminded me of flying deep into Lake Clarke NP, the pilot spent most of his time hanging out the window looking for bear while the plane was tossling up down everywhere.

Been looking into picking up a macro lens before my baby is born in a few weeks. Really like the CV65 but it's currently more expensive than a brand new FE90. There's also the FE 50 but I would prefer a longer focal length. Kind of swaying to the FE90 as it's cheaper and has AF. Anyone want to sway me either way? :D

Yeah, we usually make a pass to two to make sure there are no animals in the landing zone. We've had elk hanging out where we wanted to put down in the past! ;-)a

i would say 90minutes. Dodging and burning took most of the time. I gave it more time because i'm showing it to the guys behind Affinity.

thanks.

You could probably tell by my avatar I like medicine men of the ancients and petroglyphs.
I do have a history of teaching Boy Scouts and Explorer posts common wild edible plants
and wild medicinals. I took a liking to pharmacognosy in pharmacy school and graduate school
and continue to add to my knowledge base through the overall studies of bushcraft.

So we were very excited to make it to McKee Springs Petroglyph site in Dinosaur Nat. Monument. That
monument made #280 in the U.S. park system for me. Poof loved Dinosaur way more than Yellowstone
and we've both expressed a desire to return---I think it was the lack of crowds overall.

So this image for Eriet! Who I know is blessed with 'glyphs in his area and makes it challenge to locate
and image them. Funny, but while exploring Dinosour I'd find them before Poof and she'd say excitedly
'where where is it!' This beyond the clearly obvious ones like this one linked-

Was my favorite of all sony lenses i owned... not most used only because of it's focal length but certainly my favorite.

If i get a sony camera again, its definitely a must have for me!

You may recall my commenting that the Sony FE 90G macro lens is one of my favorites and I haven't changed that opinion since. I haven't used the other lens you mention but I would give the FE 90 a big thumbs up.

mucho fabulo!!! These are great!

My friend Frank just came back from the Navajo Reservation where he was allowed into a slot canyon as the first Anglo in modern history. ...... they used rope and tackle and found a room above the water line on a ledge with a fire pit and a bunch of petros on the wall..... The guide asked him not to take pics at this time as the guide did not know they were there..
