met up with a new friend today i met over on the pentax forum. we had a good time. i just wish i'd gotten more keepers out of the 100 shots i got.. that's the game tho, live and learn.. i used the 500 a lot but the wind defeated me.. here's a few ....



in coming!!

Like the pelicans the best - the first one shows just how improbable their beaks really are. Know what you mean about taking tons of pictures and only getting a few keepers (do that most of the time). It's a good thing that I have fun just taking the pictures, regardless of how they come out.

Awesome shots roy. Love the first shot in particular. I have NEVER been able to expose as well as you do for white feathered shots. So nice. Thanks for sharing.

Years ago I read about a pro taking over a hundred shots just to get one right for a magazine cover. He said film was cheap. Since "film" is even cheaper now, keep firing away! I'd give up a hundred shots for keepers like you have here!

And I read about the pro who took 100 000 (yes, one hundred thousand) shots for a book on penguins. 128 pictures survived the selection process and were printed in the book.

Real nice pelicans, Roy. Keep wearing out your camera, it should last at least another 50 000 shots!

Nice shooting Roy.

Think the first and fourth (serious look on his face) are my favorites.

I'd say the first one made it all worth it

Awesome shot
