Took the ATV out today and drove 45 miles through the woods and had a great relaxing time. Left the gun in the case and only took photos, but the light was difficult at best, with bright sun along with deep shadows everywhere.



The turkeys were in deep shade, so I had to bump the ISO up to 1600 for this shot.



Back to ISO 400 for this shot of a Red Pine Squirrel that was not happy with my being in his territory, but at least was kind enough to stay in the sun.

I can hear him, too. Look at that tail shake!

We have ones around here that will throw acorns at your car when you drive by. I've watched them throw them at my son's car pulling out of the driveway.

I like that Turkey shot Tom, though I think I would have taken the picture after I had ensured a turkey dinner. I don't see any noise in the pic at all. I know you reduced it, did you post process it for noise also? Very nice, I don't know if I have taken even a dozen shots yet at ISO 1600.

I did little PP, only slight USM since the shot was taken in jpg mode, but no noise reduction. You have to love the high ISO performance that Pentax has, since I would have had more grain if I was using ISO 1600 film for sure.

Tom, beautiful imagery as usual! Fall seems to be in all its glory in Wisconsin! Am awaiting its arrival in Southern Ohio/Northern Kentucky in about 3-4 weeks!

Got some great looking woods. Looks like a nice place to spend some time letting acorns hit you on the head. Squirrel photo is really good. I'm hoping to get some good shots of some fox squirrels this fall. In the past, I just didn't have enough zoom.

No zoom, FA* 300mm 4.5, the lens I just can't stop using.

Roy, thanks, the squirrel was so animated that he gave me lots of great shots and he wouldn't shut up until I walked on.

Hi Tom,

Don't know why you even bother to bring the gun. :-)

I used to C&R fish about 200 days/year, have over $1K in gear, and haven't changed the line on my reels in over two years. Got my first digital camera to take pics of the fish, and now . . . well I just take pics. . .:-)
