Default Autumn in New Brunswick.

Even though I have attempted to do it so many times I cannot put aside my beat up old *istDS. It seems to be a perfect match for the old 70-300mm Tamron F4-5.6 Tele-Macro (which is rather less than stellar on the K7 or K5). As a result here are a set of autumn images taken on a walk with that camera and lens.

The first one is not very sharp and the bokeh in the last one is horrific but this is still a fun combination that gives lots of (high contrast) images. The dynamic range is so low that I get these exaggerated effects.

I like the third one. Looks like a trio of aliens coming towards us.
