This is the time of year when I try to get in as much fishing as the weather permits before the coldweather blows in from the North and the fish head South. Just a few photos taken the last 2 weekends using the E-510 and 14-54mm lens. I realize that Olympus makes a number of really superior lenses, but I really like this lens and find that it's on the camera almost all the time (except when the 70-300mm is on)

Anyways, here goes:

Just some cropping done and a little color adjustments in PP.

Beautiful scenery. What a wonderful place to live this time of the year. That's also around 6 more rod & reels than I've owned my entire life(!), but you made them into a very nice subject. That 14-54 couldn't have found a better home.

Hi Zig

Some fine pics.. the first one with the fishing rods is my favorite - nice composition and the colour is just spot on.

Cheers

Harj

:O :?

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the kind comments........I do rather like the first shot myself as well. Greg, in case you're wondering, those are not all my fly rods. Although, I do admit to owning a few:?. Yes, that lens has found a very happy home...............



Steven R Oct 23, 2008 8:31 AM

Nice job zig. But how do we reallyknow that those rods are not all yours????

:lol:

Were shots 2 & 4 shot in the vertical, or are they crops?

............you have given us examples that freshen my first thoughts toward this day.

I've been quite grumpy about some things for the past couple days and just seeing these and remembering some great memories that #'s 1 & 2 recall cause a smile within me.

Thanks Zig,

Gee Bob,

Sounds like your in a bit of a funk.

Best to grab the wife, grab the camera, get in the car and take a ride. I surely would love to see some more of your photos of Texas Longhorns.

........hey Zig,

I thought of these pictures, particularly the rods/reels, yesterday when I stopped by our local Orvis retail store. I believe I saw some of the same reels, the gold color anodized ones for sure, though perhaps just branded to Orvis.

Hey Bob,

It's good to hear from you. I was beginning to wonder about you as it seemed you were down in the dumps in your last post.

As for Orvis......the world certainly has changed. I can remember when they only had their original store in Manchester VT. I used to stop there in my first life as a sales rep. As a fly fisherman, Orvis along with LL Bean were the places to go if you wanted to buy a rod or a reel and a few flies. Of course, if you lived in the midwest, Herter's was the only game in town.

Now, both Orvis and LL Bean have stores spread around the country. They are still great companies-just different. I must be old becauseI liked it better back then.

I just love that second shot, Zig (all others are very nice as well). It deserves to be enlarged and nicely framed:cool:

Hi Tullio,
