  1. I've tested a few Leica's to their limits in bad weather, and the Leica M10 a little more. So far they have all survived. Here's a story on that and the necessity to face the rain and snow sometimes ... Enjoy! "Leica M10 in the rain"
  2. Prague, Ultava Embankment Charles Bridge Olympus EM5 with Nocticron
  3. These rocks are an attraction because of their atmosphere. They are a relict of the ice age and people come here for enjoying, meditation etc. The light situation is most difficult because the light always comes from the "wrong" side. so one can try to capture a backlight situation. Here it is the last light of the sinking sun beore it settles down behind a hill. Sky and water are always too bright, so I used 2 ND grad filters plus a polarizer and 6 shots for the panorama. It is an 16 MB file and I am afraid this compression does not at all show the fine IQ of the Q Leica Q
  4. These days are wonderful: still summer temperatures. The days are a bit shorter now but the light we get here is lovely for the time being. So I started out for a big peat bog because there were promising clouds. But not so at that place. It was tranquille, warm, calm and frogs could be heard, geese on their evening strife. Altogether a lovely sunset atmopshere. I tried out my new Olympus Em 5 MKII with Summilux 15 mm and Nocticron 43 mm
  5. In the range of my hometown you can find a few small protected areas where migrater waterbirds find food and shelter for the breading season. It is early and one cannot expect many birds now. The Q always goes with me for landscaping. The sun came out for a moment to cast a nice warm light on the scenery. Just enough time to shot 2 panoramas.
  6. The Monticello Dam Spillway near Winters, California (Leica X2). At the lake's peak level the spillway can drain 48,400 cubic feet per second (1,370 m3/s), which occurs when the lake level rises to 15.5 feet (4.7 m) above the level of the funnel (Wikipedia).
  7. I do a lot of sailing along with some snorkeling and scuba. Has anyone found an underwater case or bag to take the X1 swimming yet?
  8. As the saying goes "Birds of a feather flock together". I spotted these gulls taking advantage of a pontoon to have a rest after a hard rainstorm. I found it fascinating that they were all facing exactly the same way. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit f2.5. Shot as .dng and converted to black and white in Lightroom Classic. Hope you like it Gerry
  9. Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 128th Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with nearly 700 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme. Also, thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us! The Barnack's Monthly theme for June 2019 is: Water. This month's theme is any pictures containing water in any of its forms such as steam, snow, rain, hail, fog, mist, ice, or Perrier - OR containing the word "water". It could be a relaxing lakeside scene, a raging seascape, a waterspout, a swimming race, yachting, a torrential downpour, a ski slope, water droplets on a car windscreen, ice inside a freezer compartment, the local Water Authority headquarters, umbrellas in the rain, a cold miserable saturated child, a puddle, a steaming cup of coffee on a cold day, mist rising from a frozen lake, a foggy landscape, a child dumping a bucket of water on their sunbathing dad, ice in a glass of whisky, water-buffalo in paddy fields, a cat lapping water from a bowl, the (niffy) Liffey River in Dublin, a mountain brook, a polar ice cap, a glacier, an ice cube in the shape of an ice cube, a cloud inversion layer, figure skating, a toboggan run, condensation trickling down a window pane, a popsicle, a slick street on a rainy night, snow drifts, a fountain, canoeing, a water bomb, a snowball, icicles hanging from the eaves, a frozen lake, an ice sculpture, raindrops on roses, wet whiskers on kittens, but no cofeves please! 😇 - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free but please keep to the topic! It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's just helpful. The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it! Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post. Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme. Note: Moderator Pop has very kindly assembled links to all of the past Barnack's Monthly threads as a single archive that can be found here: Barnack's Monthly Index. Thank you, Pop! Pete.
  10. Very old fashioned image this, the kind of thing you might see every week in any camera club anywhere. But despite knowing this uncomfortable fact and even as I began to press the shutter, I took the shot. Stuck in my ways I guess. M9 with 35mm Summicron IV. [/url],
  11. I will be taking a South Pacific islands vacation in a few weeks. This will include kayaks, zodiacs, snorkeling (obviously no camera there except one designed for underwater use), and in general being around the water. In the past, I have used an iPhone or a Sony RX100 or my Nikon D800 with a lens that is water-protected, for this kind of use. If the weather is bad enough--as in pouring rain in Alaska--I used a serious rain protector and continued taking pictures. One time I spent all day out in light rain in Norway with an unprotected Nikon D300 and had no water damage. Everyone else on the trip thought I was crazy. Maybe so, but I was lucky. So I am not scared of cameras and water in general, with (most of the time) reasonable precautions. But I do not plan to use my Leica M10 in some zodiac or kayak, or in the rain. Too much invested, and the camera is not waterproof. While in a small water craft, I will either just use my iPhone X or (I had to add the travel weight) possibly one of my Nikon DSLR's which otherwise I do not plan to bring on this trip. The most I would do with a Leica while in a Kayak or zodiac is carry it along in a water sealed pack and wait until I get to the beach or on board our small ship before using it to take photos. Here's my question: do any of you risk using a Leica camera while in small water craft or comparable activities where you risk water damage? I remember reading an article by Thorsten Overgaard where he used his Leica out in some serious rain and went through significant drying procedures to resurrect his camera afterwards. He was not recommending that others try this, and I certainly wouldn't put my Leica through the kind of water exposure risk that I take with some of my Nikon DSLRs or cheaper cameras.
  12. exploring a small local creek we were attracted of the variety of water state: frozen,falling,flowing, Light was light blue in the shadows reflecting the blue from the sky. Since I decided to leave my R Elmarit 90 mm mounted on MKII plus Leica Apo 2x converter for this distance and so the lens told were to search for motives.
  13. last sunday was a sunny day and we scanned a little local creek for something to shoot. We found many things as soon as we got focussed on the small things alongside the water Canon MKII with Elmarit R 90 mm + Leica APO converter2x
  14. what else can one do on a rainy sunday but cover the camera with a protectionate foil and look for something. Over a fence most of the ivy was cut down but a few twigs and branches left. It was very dark, so then normally I do several shots with different exposure. Canon 5D MKII with Elmarit R-60mm on tripod. here I used an LED pocket lamp for illumination
  15. this pond, a small water reservoir, is the destination for my daily breaktime walk. These days my X1 is my perfect companion when there is no time for big equipment. In front one can see the underwater dam. Thanks for stopping by.
  16. on one of those rainy days of the past weeks we went to a village where people have most attractive gardens in front of their houses. Since it was rainy I could not mount the camera on a tripod while strolling through the village. The Elmarit R 60 mm macro was mounted on the Canon 5DMKII protected by an umbrella. Altogether 400 ISO and an aperture of 4f and 160 shutterspeed, handheld. If somebody will be feeling of stopping by, I'll be glad.
  17. in this summer there is plenty of waterdrops falling on flowers that one cannot resist taking pictures. This rose is in our garden and was taken with 90mm Elmarit mounted on my MKII. Also beauties are touched by the mark of passing time. I could have photophopped the gras on the left side but decided for leaving it as it is. Come along and have a look for which I thank everybody very much in advance for taking time.
  18. Since we have a lot of rain these days I used a break between two rainshowers in the evening and tried out a new tripod and Elmarit 90 mm & 180 mm on MKII. I hope somebody will come along into our garden and have a look. Many thanks in advance.

  19. hello everyone! i read a lot about leica users being worried about their cameras getting wet and stuff...so here is a little field report: i am now back from a 3 day assignment covering a traditional mountain crossing in austria...first day was perfect weather so no problems...2nd day was not quite as good...it poured down the whole day...and we had to walk down from 2200m to 600m above sea level for about 7 hours...to make it short: everything was completely soaked...i for myself, my backpack and my lowe carrying case (which is of very good quality, but you guys know that...they arent the sexiest bags out there but worth the money)...since i was on an assignment i had to take photos...and my m9-p got really really wet...and not just that...since it was so cold and humid outside, once we entered huts on the way the camera steamed up real bad...it looked like there were 2mm of water around the camera...that left me a bit worried so i wiped it as good as i could until it got warm enough...then out again, then in again and so on...that whole story went on for 7 hours and i tell you again, everything was soaked and i was worried as hell so the good news: the camera was and still works perfect! no worries at all...crystal clear and sharp images! so to make it short for real this time: it might not be weather sealed, but it can take a lot, that little m9-p fella i love this little thing!
