Paco, ss always, I admire the way you capture the "moment".  This one is no exception.

Oak tree, from this morning's stroll

Yesterday I did some testing with the Nikkor-O 2.1cm/4 from early sixties on my Z6. Poor results by today's standards!
Today I put on my Df an ultra-wideangle lens which for unexplained reasons I haven't been using for 3 years: the IRIX Blackstone 11mm/4

Well, the sun (in the frame) did not flare, exept for a negligible red glitch, and small details are rendered even in the corners.

Will be doing more strolls around with this one...

Ciao from Massimo

Love the expression, the energy and the dynamics, Paco.  Looks like hard work.

Thank you John. My main point of attention was the spectacular play of light and color on the water (sooc here). Then I saw the man living in that environment and couldn´t resist.

Winter is behind our backs

...but silhouettes are not!

The interaction with the trees and their shadows work effectively here, Massimo. Great shot.

Thanks to you all for the encouragement and appreciation!

I also like the small vineyard in the background on the L, where the contorted vines add a little touch -and balance- to the lineup up front!
