Hey Ira,
My guess is the small stone in the lower middle of the photo.
Judging from his posture, I'd say he was skipping rocks. How many skips can he get in one one toss?

About 6 was his best.

When I looked at the first 3 shots I was wondering why you mentioned sand - looks like a beach of all rock. Then I got to the 4th one, okay, there's sand.

Like the use of dof with the rusty part and the bridge, all that green looks cool and wonderful. Sure wish I were there right now, it's been hot.

Great story told through your skilled eyes! Really nice colors and textures, fine composition too.

I've heard some not very good things about that lens, but it sure seems to do well for you!

#2 in particular is excellent. Lovely composition and great DoF makes the shot very interesting.

As usual you excel in "simple" shots with a few powerful elements in them. Are you up north yet or are these taken near Gander?

These were taken at the old family homestead about three and a half hours from Gander (Newfoundlanders tell distance in hours, go figure). I go north in late August..

Mole, the lens I have is optically the same as the FA 100-300mm f4.5-5.6 power zoom model, not exactly a winner but I find it works very well at shorter distances like I was using here. At longer range it seems to lose its sharpness and has rather `fuzzy`details.

Harriet, we have the opposite problem here this year, hardly any days over 70 degrees F.

Ronny, the rusty wheel looks like remnants from a fire where they burned tires, wheels and all!!
