Thanks Ray..Thanks, it was the light, shade and texture that grabbed me and made a fairly mundane object look a bit interesting. The M-Rokkor is actually a Leica M Mount lens, much the same as a Leica Elmar 90mm f4. It really can give a nice feel to certain images.
I'm a Minolta user from way back, but sold off most of my stuff years ago. I still have my SRT 303 and 50mm f1.4, but I've also scored from Ebay a mint 135mm f2.8, 100mm f2.5, 35mm f1.8 and a 50mm 3.5 macro with extension tube (all of these combined for less than it would have cost for a new 14-42mm). There's just something about the Minolta lenses that makes me like the results much more than any other SLR brand and I have Nikon and Pentax as well.
I think I'm becoming a lens whore.
Thanks. That was just natural sunlight filtering through the trees at our campsite. It only lasted a few minutes and I was awake enough to get a few shots. Unfortunately, that beautiful spot is closed for the winter.Hey awesome Ozray. I enjoy the colours the light brings out in the wood. Is the light from the sun or did you shine it artificially? Nice pic, would make a good desktop picture i reckon. I can see where the white ants have left their tracks. Probably left in haste knowing their happy hunting ground could be used to keep Ozray warm in the upcoming winter.:smile:
