You are in an amazing location: such spectacular scenery and wildlife. Also, shooting in the frigid conditions as you are is a testament to the K10D as well as the "Bigma" lens. I've got to put Charma, New Mexico on my list of places to visit during my lifetime! As for the pictures themselves, they belong in the pages of National Geographic!! Jay

Don't know which I enjoyed more - the story or the pictures! Thanks for the "candy for my eyes" and the chuckle, too.

i can answer that. at about 80-100 meters you start losing detail pretty fast with a 500mm. thats with a good lens.. so figure 250-350 feet. a common football field.

roy
So with a 400mm I could possibly get good results at around 80 yrds give or take a few? Thats not too bad. I've been a hunter all my life so approaching game at that distance shouldnt be too difficult.

Roger,
I never experienced anything below -12°C and that was in a freezer at work, so the -20 (if it's in °F -> -30°C) is something I simply can't imagine.
And then you take pictures this great - at least tell me that SR was on.
Great work - Ronny

Hi Roger,

I am glad to see that I am NOT the only dummy out there taking pictures in the cold!!! LOL!!

I take pictures for the YearlyInternational Continental ski jumps. Last year the first day of jumps it was -49 degrees and the second day it was a heat wave of 10 above.

At least you were walking around. I was standing on steps on the side of the hill. :?
