    What a treasure in Abo, New Mexico..... one couldn't help but wonder what life was like here.... the Mysterious Indian ruins of Abo...

    A storm was threatening all afternoon, yet it never did rain......

    The 14mm really strutted it's stuff, this is a must have lens...

    Great images ! I am glad to see Chevrolet making cars, that goes back to it's roots of the mid sixties, like a 64 Impala witness a 300hp 327 under the hood,

    Camera set to vivid, the 14mm was f/2.5, a linear polarizer was also used, and adjusted as the shots took place. Shutter speed varied from as fast as the E-PL1 could go, 1/2000, to anything lower as I was battling the brightness, though the cloud cover helped. I typically like to have my aperature either wide open or close to it, then I just adjust shutter speed to compensate, all in manual mode, auto focus was used. I am a newbie with this camera, it's controls are kinda clunky, and the LCD screen is hard to see, this camera kinda gives me reason to shoot bad images, but I am able to get the lighting right, almost always staying at ISO200, except for my pitch darkness shot, then I useally bump ISO to 400.

    As much as I like your shots of Abo, I think that the lizard shot is my favorite! :biggrin:

    It is a horny toad....they are chubby and slow......

    I was shocked to see one, as I haven't seen one in decades...lizards are abundant, but these guys are extremely scarce...

    Interesting. I almost always stay on Natural or Monochrome. I should experiment but I've never much cared for making over-saturated images - I shot only enough Velvia to respect it and know it wasn't for me :wink: . I like your images but I could just never visualize them like that. The Lizard is a great image.

    My VF3 & super control panel makes both the taking of pictures and control of the camera much easier.

    the Lizard was shot with the 45mm f/1.8, as I needed more reach...
