We are on our vacation and have been having a very action packed couple of days. I haven't finished with the pictures I've taken, but thought I'd share a couple of them.

This guy doesn't appear to be having a good day:



I don't think you can call the lower guy very graceful.



But he sure has a lot of air under him in this picture.



The mountain in the background might tell some people where exactly I was - it has been featured in a number of movies.

All of these were taken with the K100 and the kit lens. Oh yeah, this isn't a sports shot, so I can use the Pentax camera for it, right?

I think the definition is "not for sports or fast action shots", so you really should not have taken these. Of course, they're taken somewhere near Hollywood, so the showis probably performed in slow motion to meet the needs of Pentax owners in the audience.:lol:

Really, awesome shots, Harriet. Happy holidays, wish I had some too. (Actually I will, just a week to go.)

And I would have guessed Utah, but great shots anyway.

Harriet, I'm afraid I'm going to have to call you out and cite you for trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Either that, or you have faked your EXIF because these represent wonderful action shots which could not have been taken with a Pentax.

Did you take these with the DA*50-135? I love the clarity and color in all of them. Nice work.

Everyone who guessed Old Tucson, give yourself a pat on the back - not that it was very difficult.

These were all taken with the kit lens - the stands aren't very far away from the show area and so I was afraid that the DA*50-135 would be too long, so I used the DA 18-55 kit lens. I was using the K100 because we had started off at theSanXavier del BacMission and I wanted the K100's better low light capability.
