  5. 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],
  6. 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.

  9. 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.

    Creek through Pennypack Ecologic Trust, a major conservancy located in Huntingdon Valley, PA, just outside of Philadelphia. Leica R8 with a Vario-elmar 35-70mm f4 lens.

  11. 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"

  15. 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).
  16. Killington, VT, USA, January 29, 2017, Leica SL, MR-Telyt-R 500mm f8.0 ... and no doughnuts! Guy
  17. 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
  18. 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

  22. Tis pond belongs to our local "Stonehenge" a formation or strange rocks being the rest of an ice age moraine. For many people it is a place for centemplation and all sort of meditation. This morning was one of theos e extremely mild late october/early november days. No breeze, no rain, the foliage was in full color. I always imagine the sound of Richard Wagner's Lohengrin and I am waiting then for a while to see him appear with his swan. Olmypus EM 5 + Nocticron 43 mm/ 1.2
