We have been having bad storms this way..last night there was a F4 in the province..which is basically unheard of in Manitoba.A wild t-storm rolled thru tonight and I went out (after) cause there was some wild and wacky clouds following the previous storm.

Incredibly nice and smooth.

I love these pics and the fringe light on the clouds...

Awesome.

Thankyou for the kind words,Gazander....I wanted to catch them over our lake here too but ran out of light..lol.I used the kit lens that came my K100D..a Pentax 18-55mm.I just got this camera and I think its the second time I have tried this lens(always playing with the bigger zoom)..I think I like it.:-)

Congrats on a great purchase! I was always a fan of the kit lens. i think it's quite underrated.

Beautiful shots..I also live in Manitoba (South St. Vital) and presently there is a big storm going on right here, right now (June 23/07).

That Minnedosa storm might have been the one that launched a tornado in Elie last night.

Wonderful and very odd cloud formations. Impressed with your k100 and kit lens.

Thanks, Lensmore!..It's always nice to meet another 'toban.I hope the storms there aren't too bad for you as they were elsewhere tonight.It's crazy now having to worry about tornados..I feel for the Elie folk..it was an F4 apparently.I'm going to the city Mon..have to stop in and look.Anyways..thanks again!..and thankyou for looking,DigitalAddict..

Incredible clouds nicely captured. I'm another fan of the kit lens, I use mine for most anything that needs a wide angle (like you, I tend to "see" in telephoto). The funny thing is that when I got the K100, I went out with both the DS and K100 along with the DA 50-200 and kit lens. I was trying to see the difference between cameras, but instead found out that there wasn't much difference when shooting raw (other than the SR differences). I did discover, though, that I preferred the color and contrast of the kit lens over my copy of the DA 50-200 (my particular DA 50-200 has some problems, which seems to be unusual for the lens overall).

Hope you stay dry with all your wild weather.

Thankyou,mtngrl....I was so happy to have it in my sparsely packed camera bag.I just picked up a Sigma 70-300 zoom this week and was all obsessed with practicing with it but I didn't think it would cut it with a horizon shot so I was glad it was in there.....Woke up to blue skies and normal weather this morn so I guess its back to figuring out the macro on it.. Thanks for looking!
