This hike is uphill almost all the way in, and downhill almost all the way back, with only three unbridged creek crossings. So the puppies & I decided to put away the camera and just run back!

So what do you think? How did that old manual lens do on this trip? Thanks for your comments & suggestions!

Favorites are the birch tree and heavy fog. I liked the puffballs, too, as well as the moss. How are you liking the K-5iis?

Great series Mole, interesting what you accomplished with the old zoom. It must be you not the equipment that produces those great results

What a beautiful area, captured so nicely by you! I love the waterfall images, the greenery around is so nice!

Thanks for letting us take this hike with you!

MacBook - Glad you enjoyed the diversity of fauna - it's a very rich place for so many species. And thanks for asking - new camera is working out quite well - especially for bird pics. Can't wait to see how it does with dragonflies, butterflies and amphibians this spring & summer!

Hans - That old manual zoom is really a little gem. I tend to forget about it - leave it at the bottom of the lens box - but am always happy with the results when it does come out. Not too hard to focus, and usually spot-on with exposure (M-mode and green button). If anything, it seems to do even better with the newer camera body.

Carol - So glad you enjoyed the hike! Hope you'll be able to visit East Tennessee for yourself someday, and take back even better photos!

Lovely shots! Your lens might be older, but it doesn't stop you from getting great shots from it.

Outstanding, as usual. I'm sure my phone isn't doing them justice. My favorite - the trees in the fog.
