Default Just a walk in the park

All taken with a k20d.

This weekend I went with my wife for a walk in the park

Lens: TAMRON XR DiII 18-200mm F3.5-6.3,Focal Length: 18mm,Aperture: f/4.0,Exposure Time: 0.017 s (1/60),ISO equiv: 100,Exposure Bias: +0.50 EV

but we were being watched,

Lens: TAMRON XR DiII 18-200mm F3.5-6.3, Focal Length: 200mm, Aperture: f/6.3, Exposure Time: 0.022 s (1/45),ISO equiv: 560, Exposure Bias: +0.50 EV

it told us to watch out

Lens: smc PENTAX-F 50mm F1.7,Focal Length: 50mm,Aperture: f/1.7,Exposure Time: 0.011 s (1/90),ISO equiv: 100,Exposure Bias: +0.50 EV

we only saw some mushrooms

Lens: TAMRON XR DiII 18-200mm F3.5-6.3,Focal Length: 200mm,Aperture: f/6.3,Exposure Time: 0.0080 s (1/125),ISO equiv: 1600,Exposure Bias: +0.50 EV

and then … a family tragedy

Lens: TAMRON XR DiII 18-200mm F3.5-6.3, Focal Length: 33mm, Aperture: f/4.0, Exposure Time: 0.022 s (1/45), ISO equiv: 560

some folks told us that this was nothing

Lens: TAMRON XR DiII 18-200mm F3.5-6.3,Focal Length: 68mm,Aperture: f/5.6,Exposure Time: 0.022 s (1/45),ISO equiv: 1600

nothing , nothing

we decided to walk on, and … wait a minute – it’s autumn


Lens: Sigma 10-20mm ,Focal Length: 11mm,Aperture: f/4.0,Exposure Time: 0.067 s (1/15),ISO equiv: 140,Exposure Bias: +1.00 EV

and they aren’t plastic

Lens: A Series Lens – Kiron 105mm – f2.8 ,Focal Length: 105mm,Aperture: f/2.8,Exposure Time: 0.011 s (1/90),ISO equiv: 560,Exposure Bias: +1.00 EV

this park was a bit too much for us so we went home.

Hope you liked the walk, any c&c always welcome

Ronny

Beautiful series, Ronny!
You really know how to make the best of that lens.
I love the mouse peeking through the leaves!

I was going to say the same thing - that mouse is so cute (yet such rodents can cause such problems!). What's the story with the family tragedy "sculpture"? It seems rather violent for a park. The leaves on the ground sure gives a wonderful feel/color to the scenes. A very nice series.

Sausages, trolls, and purple mushrooms? What kind of park is that?

Try entering the first mouse shot in Steve's POTD - it is really neat!.

An amusing series, Ronny, nicely photographed.

Thanks GW, what lens do you mean

________________________________

Thanks Harriet, the mouse was really small, less than 1inch and it was (probably the weather) extremely slow. I don't know what was with the family tragedy, I couldn't find any description of why or what is was, except funny.

Thanks Wizzard

Thanks Frogfish, I thought the rodent problem in Paris was just some publicity for the movie Ratatouille.

Thanks Pen, the shots where taken at an open air museum a place I haven't visited in years.
