There is a revolution happening in digital cameras, and it’s all about miniaturization. We peruse 5 different SMC Takumars in this walk around Longwood Gardens.
Ice crystals captured with my 100mm and 200mm macro lenses during the recent cold spell.
Exploring two more excellent SMC Takumar lenses with the Lens Turbo: the 135mm f/2.5 and 100mm f/4 Macro.
Having successfully navigated a one-way traverse of Gothics & Sawteeth, and with the encouragement of our new 46er mentors, we decided to hike our first “unmaintained” trail to Street Mountain and Nye Mountain.
The views from 4,736-foot Gothics were wonderful. We had a perfect day again.
Mount Marcy, at 5,344 feet, is the highest mountain in the Adirondacks. It is also the most hiked of the 46 high peaks, which is a little odd to me since it is a 14.6-mile round trip taking the usual way from the Adirondack Loj (pronounced ‘lodge’).
On two of our rest days, we had nice intermittent cloud cover making for dramatic infrared shots. The last shot is the view of Hurricane Mountain from our rental, and you can see the fire tower in the distance.
These are a week earlier than 2010, and three weeks earlier than 2009. They’re still my favorite flowering tree.
More from West Chester, on Fuji 800Z.
The rest of the roll from New London (and my upstairs bedroom) with an unintentional theme.
The Mystic Aquarium is small, but decent. They had Beluga whales, sea lions, and penguins outside, and then a small but nice exhibit inside.
Black and whites from a late afternoon walk through a cemetery in Mystic, Connecticut.
These are scans of real film, all the way to the sprocket holes. This is from a quick Sunday visit to Longwood Gardens. Taken with my F100, and both my 200mm f/4 macro and SMC Takumar 100mm f/4 macro.
