Still working through the settings and features of the K-30. These were taken last week near Gravenhurst, Ontario.

Really like the images, especially the colors

Cheers

Great coloring.

The rock formation in the last is quite intriguing

One of the local cottagers constructed it quite a few years ago and it sits across the laneway from his cottage. It is an inuksuk or inukshuk built by the indigenous people of the high Arctic regions. They were and are used for "for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for travel routes, fishing places, camps, hunting grounds, places of veneration, drift fences used in hunting or as a food cache." (Wikipedia:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inuksuk).

I tried some minor sharpening and then resizing on one image. Not sure if more is needed or not.

A big check mark from me on these shots. Our foliage has been poor down here in the New England and it is nice to see these fine colors. The sharpening was a nice improvement to the first image.

Nice colors. As Lou said, we haven't had much around here this season.
