I have to preface this with...I HATE spiders...always have...but I am learning to not just stomp them to a pulp...find the beauty in them...well, the webs anyway. This big fella had a huge web, and it crossed the boardwalk I was walking today at my shoot...and I could get right up under it and not disturb it for a unique view...

Here's a quick shot of a Tri Tip roast I grilled today. I used a honey-mustard glaze and a rub I made of course ground pepper, kosher salt, garlic powder and some Lipton onion soup mix I put in a spice grinder. Cooked slow and low until an internal temp of 120° then took it off the grill to rest and add more charcoal for a final sear to bring the temp to 130°. After resting for about 10 minutes, this is how it looked as I sliced it across the grain.

Sorry the image isn't "magazine pretty" by any stretch of the imagination but since this was my first try at cooking it this way, I thought I'd take a photo or two. It turned out very tender and juicy and I will be doing it like this again.

This male Costas Hummingbird was patiently waiting for me to put the (his ;-)a) newly refilled feeder back in its proper place.

Getting ready for the RX10iv I carried the 1 inch sensor (which as we all know is nowhere near 1 inch in size)

Thanks MM.

hmmm. Well, they are very different, Both are very tender with the Tri Tip having more texture and more of a beefy flavor than a prime rib roast, which I would characterize as having a finer texture and flavor. I think both cuts are very good in their own right and I like them both. I think of the tri tip as more of a Sunday roast for the whole family and a prime rib as more for special occasions. They are both very different in price too of course.

Here's a shot showing the texture and veins of fat on the end pieces of this roast.

tested the 12-24 at 12mm

i think i get the hang of using UWA but i think i'm leaning towards the Venus Laowa 15mm because of the F2 and the claim of close to zero-D.

Guys excuse the re-post!, but I re-edited my Gin photo and used the tonal contrast filter in Nik color efex pro to try and smooth the background a bit and remove the banding/ripple issue I was having. I think this looks much better, still getting it slightly on the right of the photo but not as much as before

That Laowa 15/2 was the one I wanted, but they couldn't deliver for my trip out west.
For me (other than the huge price difference) I'm glad it worked out for the 12-24 for me.
The difference between 12 and 15 is gargantuan for field of view. Granted I use that focal length
rarely but that could be said about the 15mm too.
The only time I'm use it on kinda regular basis (the 15/2) would be wide field astro but thanks to
Eddie and Travis I've come a long way focusing the Batis 18.

I wanted to share some fall colors with you guys from my neck of the woods, alas there is little to show.
We've scoured from 1600 feet to over 6000 feet in the last 2 days and little to show for it.
What colors (minimal) that are there are drastically muted. Nothing between 1600 and 2500 feet.
2500-3500 a dull yellow with dull brown and some occasional patches of evergreens.
From 3500-5000 colors yes but muted and more denuded trees from the hurricane a couple of weeks ago.
5000-6000 everygreens/fir/spruce mixed with grey bare trees.


So I share some color from three weeks ago in Colorado and wait that's not all, if you order in the next 20 min's
I'll throw in a collage of a few images the passing hawk gave me from the front yard.

No EXIF on the birds shots but you guys can figure correctly it was via a9+100400gm, the pics shown plucked from almost 60 shots.

Here's the colors, me standing at around 5300 feet, won't imbed since not a Sony-
