    #1C for color

    This also taken in the everglades. As I was shooting the cypress trees and their reflections in the water an alligator glided slowly against the grain of the reflection of the trees. Click the image to view full screen.

    I was watching the buffalos along side the road with the gorgeous Tetons in the background when these two came pretty close to me.

    I was shooting with my new M246 Leica Monochrom and the APO50.  I took this shot and then some other tourists came up near me. They did not know their camera controls. At first they started shooting with the built-in flash going off  and then they activated the beeping sound when they took each shoot.  Well, this big bison did not like that beeping sound especially after having the flash go off in his eyes minutes earlier.

    Well, he snorted and suddenly faked an attack on the fence in front of us. We all started running back to our cars. What happened next freaked me out. So the buffalo turned around and ran away from us down the fence line.  After about a quarter mile he found an opening in the fence and made left turn heading right back toward us. I started up the car and got the heck out of there and never looked back. The next day we heard about someone who was speared by a buffalo in this area. Tourists never learn and do not heed the Park Service warnings.

    In Morocco I came upon this scene  where the man was heading home from the Saturday market on his mode of transportation, his donkey. To me this scene was very representative of the area and daily life in such an arid land. The bags hanging on each of the donkey’s sides are filled with groceries, probably for the week.

    This is why we have the Darwin Awards…

    This was taken with a Fuji 50R [email protected] 1/500 if I remember correctly for what was a rare opportunity to shoot two 110 year old steam engines coming at ne at full speed, which for a steam engine here in the yard as about 5 mph. Ely, NV Northern Nevada Railway during photographers weekend 3 day shoot. We were lucky to have fresh snow.

    This was taken in Yellowstone NP next to a caldron pot with an XF/IQ3100/110mm lens. It has been considerably cropped (perhaps by 90%) since I saw this abstract look within the original file only once back home and processing images. Click to enlarge.

    Worked out very nicely. Since they’re on converging paths, who braked?

    Beautiful images and great to see so many here.  It makes for a nice morning to open them and inspires me to go and work on some of my older images. Thanks.

    Mike.

    They both braked. It was easy for them since they look like they are going fast but they were perhaps going 5mph maximum.

    #4 This B&W image was taken in Olympic NP. I had walked this area many times and finally my creative juices kicked in and this was the result. Taken in a good rain storm which is so common in this area and under my umbrella along with my portable Phase gear umbrella over the gear which is not at all waterproof.  I like the mood of the ares with vegetation in the left and right foreground along with the depth of the rainforest in the background with various tree species found in this area.

    This one is a bit different. Taken during a Joshua Tree NP sunrise in and amid the cholla trees. I had thorns all over my books from these trees. Once finished here it took my weatherman tool to successfully remove them all. A wide angle lens allowed me to get close to this tree so as to hide the sun behind it. Just a glorious sunrise that morning making you glad you got up at an ungodly hour in order to position yourself before the morning event of sunriseCF004065-Edit-Edit-1200-copy

    A beautiful place to be. Haven’t been there in 25 years, but it’s just across the pond from us.

    An old pickup taken in my backwoods attempts at capturing “old” things throughout the Southest US. This was my second attempt at this location which I first saw and photographed using my GFX 50R. Here I used the Alpa STC/IQ4150 Achromatic/90au lens/ISO200.
