its up to the people if they continue to be manipulated,
however that's a different discussion.

Our local run-of-river power facility is busy making money by generating hydroelectricity to feed into the massive connecting cables to the Continent.

UV by the Z6 and Coastal APO 60mm f/4, Baader U filter.  I could just barely make a hand-held exposure as daylight was starting to fade..

Fine details and bokeh, Tom.  Which lens did you use?

Thanks John, Andrew and Akira for commenting.

John, the lens is the 50mm f/1.2 S, which arrived at my home yesterday morning. I tried it right away and was impressed by what the pictures looked like. I have the 50mm f/1.8 S and while it is a clinically sharp lens, I have never been able to take good pictures with it - my bad I guess. I was impressed by what Frank has done with the 50mm f/1.2 S and it sparked a desire to get the lens. The order was a month and a half on backorder from Nikon but it was worth the wait. It is the first 50mm lens in my lifetime that has really rocked my boat.

I will probably sell the 50mm f/1.8 S and another lens or two to offset the cost, but I'm keeping the f/1.2.

I had my 300mm vrII serviced because I felt it was not as sharp as it used to. Nikon Madrid told me it just needed a little adjustment of the AF and they did so at no cost  ???  8) I spend the evening just marveling at the detail this lens can produce. Here, a little contrast with enclosed work and open happy decorations on the street, a few meters from the balcony.
