Wow, neat trail... It will be about 2 months before the snow is gone, and Spring has come into being.. and everything is green... You would really enjoy the Finnish would planks that take ya for miles... it is so quiet, the silence is loud. Well, these are great pictures. Everytime I sit down and log onto this forum, I really wonder what I will see next. Never without any great surprises. Nice work. Ned

Water looks spot on to me! Really realistic as far as its flow rate. Very beautiful scenes. Ned

I did enjoy your images but I don't feel qualified to critique, Very nice shots

Mole,

Wonderful shots, especially pleasing to me are the waterfalls, but I am partial to them. They are all excellent. I always look forward to your postings. I just got off of a plane in Detroit after a 3.5 hour ride, and drove an hour, so your shots made my day.....

Ned - once again I am humbled by your too kind comments! To answer your question - most of my bird photos are taken with a (very old, beat up and scratched up) Pentax A* 300 F4. Some taken with a (very old but in good shape) Pentax 135-600 F6.7, and a few with an old Pentax A 70-210 F4. These bird photos were taken at the feeder, quite close (perhaps 4 m??). As the birds "line up" for their turn at the feeder, they tend to choose specific perches. By pre-focusing at these perches, I am ready for the next feathered friend... No, I don't really catalogue my photos (probably should), just try to name them something descriptive enough so I can find them again...

GW - Thanks so much! That lens does seem to do very well capturing these bright sunny days. We're expecting lots of rain next few days, will have to see how it does in the grey weather...

Mtnman & Patty - Thank you for your kind words!

Hans - Please do feel free to critique! You are certainly qualified!!

Dustin - Thanks so much! I have passed that farm numerous times, just never took the time to stop & snap the shutter... Will have to try it again under some other lighting conditions.

Interested_Observer - So glad you are back safe from all the travels, and also glad these photos could add a little to the relief of a safe return...
