This is a very witty picture of this threesome. Do they sing, by chance? They are cute, but I know they have big claws! These are particularly charming looking, Roni. I had a tan and white one once named Alvin.
Last weekend I was in the local park watching and listening to the Uks largest outdoor classical concert. The park is excellent for this, sloping gently down to the river with the stage at the bottom of the slope. 35,000 people can sit where they like and all get a decent view;
The orchestra were on good form, a popular program with something for everyone and nothing too challenging.
And because everyone like them, a good display of fireworks at the end;
Arrived at SFO last night for a conference. This was taken from the 14th floor of the Mark Hopkins Hotel on Nob Hill with an LX-5: Two six second exposures at f/4.5, stitched using Autostitch. I basically used a book for a tripod. Corrected and straightened in PTLens. Note correction is far from perfect... distortion shows up strongly in the lines of the building lower left.
May add some further attempts tonight. I am not completely happy with the focus on this.
I'm not sure why I hadn't noticed all these new additions to this thread, but I'm here now! Some of you know that I've seen your pictures over on Flickr because we're "contacts" there...and I've often commented there already.
I'm bringing this thread up for others to see what's going on because the quality is impressive and the color is excellent in here. Please don't hesitate to repost some of your photos into the various image threads - you need to spread the wealth!
Went looking for locations for leaf peak today. Not quite there yet. I'm thinking next weekend or just after. Came across this old trestle on the Housatonic just south of Route 7 in New Milford, Connecticut.
