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

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...............

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.
