Like the sunburst on your "Bluebells at Sunset" @pdk42

Both high on my "wish list". E-M1 III and 8mm/1.8
The lens is a bit specialize but with the in camera defish or Olympus Workspace defish is a nice alternative to the 7-14mm F2.8, especially now that someone is developing a filter folder for it. The E-M1 Mark III is a really nice camera with all the new feature that you though you wouldn't need until you do.

Nam - haven't seen many shots from you recently so it's great to see an absolute cracker like this one!
Thank you

Yes, I looked at the specs for the E-M1 III and thought the changes from II all make it so much easier to drive.

Nacho was less impressed with the 8mm than I was-

I took my new addition to a triatlon race, I was curious if it brings new angles and views :)

I think it is very interesting lens, but one has to get really close ...

… and first attempts with panning. There is a great potential but a lot of practice as well :)

Went to the beautiful Oregon coast over the weekend, unfortunately the moon was still visible almost all night. However there is a small window that we can shoot between the end of blue hour and moon rise. Here is one from Secret Beach in Samuel H. Boardman Regional Park just north of Brookings.

Also this was my first time attempting to stack shots. Here I used 13 shots and stacked with "Starry Landscape Stacker." I think it's only available on OSX.
