Lingering clouds




Wide-angled impressions after a storm


Using an Olympus E-1 and a Sigma 18-125mm digital lens – mostly in the 18-30mm range.

Rain expected later in the day (using an E-1)


The whole time we were at the river this morning it looked as though it might rain any minute, but it waited until we were back in the Jeep and on the way home.

A Pentax 50mm on a cloudy morning

Using an old film-lens on a digital camera is tricky and not always rewarding.  I hadn’t been looking forward to my next such challenge, but last night I read an article that made me want to try again.  I have several such lenses, and this morning resolved to use a Pentax 50mm F1.2.  Unfortunately, the sky was overcast and not at all what I envisioned when I made my plans last night.  Also, I forgot to change my ISO from 200 to 100.
