Nice temple, maybe you like to explain about the site, Akira.

Thank you, Fons.  This is a Shingon temple called Kanzo-in which is considered to be founded at least before 1332.  Its principal image is Dainichi-nyorai (Mahavairocana).

There are quite a bit of temples of different scales around the area in which I live, and it took only 7-8 minutes on foot to get to the temple.

An early fall snowstorm this past autumn found this maple fully leaved. One lower limb snapped from the added weight. Thankfully this spring, the tree is sending out new leaves near the base of the healing wound. Life goes on.

Anemone nemorosa Wood Anemone are slowly coming into bloom these days. So I guess it's spring although the temperature doesn't feel appropriate for that season. Oh well.

Nikon Z6, Nikkor-O CRT 55mm f/1.2. Set to f/1.2 obviously. This lens will, by the way, focus to infinity on the Z, but then only a small centre area has any kind of sharpness. For close-ups this issue is moot. The lens performs very well around 1:4-1:5 magnification.

The impression of speed is different with a tele lens.

Thanks Fons. May is a busy month for migrating birds. They come in over night from the south, stay around for a day or so and then move north. Some stay and nest here, most don’t. Seeing them is always magical to me.

True spring still is a feature of the future it seems. However, being a Nordic citizen, patience is a useful trait.

Vivek Iyer kindly informed me the NEX-5N Monochrome had a "sweep panorama" mode. Despite the depressing and inclement weather I just had to try from my porch and voila! this works. Now I can have pencil photos, not only pencil skirts :)

The 'Pier' from Ravels.  The symbol of the small city in the north of Belgium.  Pier is a dialect word meaning 'Earthworm'.   In former times the soil was so poor that the discovery of an 'Earthworm' was a sign for a prosperous future.  Hence the symbol of the town was born  ;)

From my home town in Norway. Df with AF-I Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 IF-ED.
I like the tele-compressed effect. Would make a nice jigsaw puzzle!

Hello rainbow!
  Today we had an unexpected rain and a beautiful double rainbow as consequence. Many neighbours taking pictures with their phones but this one just sang to it.

Wow. Both scene and image.

Can anybody identify these blossoms? The trees seem plentiful in the neighbourhood but I have no idea which species they are.

I find the Z6 and 60mm 2.8g a great combination.


   I´m still going through the files from yesterday´s shooting. A total of 5 different images. This may be one of them.


   Z6, 85mm 1.8s, ambient led light plus a godox ad200 (great light) with beauty dish.

Yes, a great combo.

Interesting colour combination, and position.   Good luck with the decision, Paco.

As a lot of rain is predicted, this afternoon the farmers were busy harvesting grass.
