When my girl friend returned after summer vacation, she found her shed being invaded by unwanted tenants ... common wasps had built a gigantic nest. And sure they were angry as only wasps can be. Thus we let them in peace while plotting for a retaliation. Today, they had to go. A last snapshot to document their temporary presence.

Which 28/1.4?  I like this diffused image.  LoCA is not good, but it won't be too distracting when it appears around the the foliage...

This place is special for many reason but it stand out the NG meetings. I can´t wait to see you all in person and share some time together. Everytime has been intense and special and magic. Let's do it again!

   John, that cat is gorgeous. It takes well every camera-lens combination. What a model  :)

   Erik, beautiful stupa. I remember when you first posted images of it once it was finished. That lighting and your concept to create it are inspiring. The results ethereal and spiritual. Love it!

Those wasps have a fantastic [accidental]design sense. If the patterns had been created by a human, we'd call them psychedelic!

  I tried the auto AF fine tune with the D5. Have never done it before with any camera. It can be quite erratic in values from one try to the next. I´m confident at the end with the values except for the 58mm 1.4G. It still works better and more consistent in the Z6 body. Anyway, here a picture with the last lights from the very same point I chose for the tests.

Densely foggy today and very cold as well, just around the freezing point, thus not what I would designate as clement shooting conditions. I did a sweep through the neighbourhood with one of my old friends to see what we could achieve.

This is false-colour IR ('EIR' emulation) by the AFS 200mm f/2 and the PrimaLuce-modified Z5.

We have had several incidents of heavy snowfall and frost to -10C already this late autumn, yet dandelions are for ever and one can observe them flowering even today.

It's dreary, wet, inclement November weather prevailing at the moment. Very warm for the season, so no snow in sight. I did change to winter tyres just in case the weather gods had an upcoming surprise for me :( now the tables at my favourite coffee bar are equally wet and dreary too. Oh well. I did shot a test capture with the venerable IR favourite Nikkor 28 mm f/3.5 AI, which apparently does a very credible job on the PrimaLuce Z5. No hot spot in IR and no vignetting either. The far-field bokeh might not be as soft as with modern lenses, but one cannot have it all rolled into a single lens I guess.

By the way, the IR snapshot revealed a later paint job on my little Peugeot (which sits in the background and the front door panel obviously is repainted) I had all forgotten about.

Just after I had swapped to winter tyres on my small red Peugeot, we had another snowfall. Still not cold enough to allow the snow to persist on ground, but many plants with green foliage will not be that resistant and therefore wilt. Not so with the tenacious dandelions, of course. They are truly dandelions for ever. My darlings.

The light dusting of snow yesterday stayed over night, as ambient temperatures dropped below the freezing point. Nice test scenery for the Tilt-shift Nikkor 19mm f/4 ED on the PrimaLuce Z5. I used a makeshift O56 filter to make the capture false-colour IR emulation ('EIR').

A tiny fraction of the former  narrow-gauge railway "Tertitten" is kept as a museum heritage and run by local enthusiasts here in my neighbourhood. They have several locomotives 100+ years old, most of which are endearing small stream locos (and an equally endearing, even smaller, diesel loco), a number of carriages, and three stations with well-kept buildings.

Here is the steam loco "Prydz" advancing towards me, seen through the wide view of the 19mm f/4E Nikkor on the PrimaLuce Z5.

The intimate secrets of a Lily, as extracted by the UV-Nikkor 105mm f/4.5 with Baader U filter, Broncolor studio flashes (with uncoated xenon tube), and the PrimaLuce Z5.

(https://www.ultravioletphotography.com/content/uploads/monthly_11_2020/post-2-0-03744600-1605985887.jpg)

This is a 100% crop of the frame. 13 captures stacked in Zerene Stacker -- these flowers are highly phototropic thus move too much around to allow deeper stacks. Thus I needed to stop the lens down to f/16, which is far more than I usual prefer, f/5.6-f/8 being the normal options. The powerful studio flashes (1600 Ws) have no problem throwing sufficient UV light onto the subject, though, even at a distance of 1m used here.

Temperatures continue to drop and the ambient settings have become distinctly wintery.

Test shooting the 50mm f/1.8 S-Line Nikkor Z in infrared on my PrimaLuce Z5 indicates this ubiquitous lens does well here too. (OK, after removing the colour shifts, and vignetting, native Z lenses tend to display on IR cameras, but that's just a funny challenge for sure)

These cows are they French limousins perhaps?  ;)

Om my way to work, at my age 70 i still maintain some gardens, once at work no cold anymore.
Incidentally i stop and take a picture, the old D3s comes in handy and the tam 45 i lke better than a nikkor in that focal length.
Cheers!
