This is the time of year I should be out shooting wildlife but it seems all my free time has been spent in a climbing gym, my new obsession. All photos are taken with the Voightlander 42.5mm and all shot wide-open...……...if you are going to shoot a f0.95 lens why not shoot it wide-open? All photos are also of my very good friend and climbing partner Amanda. Next month we will be getting our lead rope certifications and I do feel sorry for her when I fall. I am 200lbs and she is 115lbs, even with the Ohm she will go up the wall before stopping my fall.

I really love shooting climbing with a manual focus lens and the Voightlander is such a smooth lens to operate. My next lens is going to be the Voightlander 17.5mm, really need something wider for the gym.

I am also just learning how to shoot climbing in a gym. Glad I have such a willing model to put up with my photography. But she does have her own personal photographer and gets lots of cool shots for social media.

You're missing the best climbing weather in TX! This is Reimer's and E-Rock season. Pace Bend once it gets too hot in another month or two

I know. I separated my shoulder a month ago and still recovering, which isn't going so well. Was at the gym yesterday and was trying to do the route I separated my shoulder on and I hurt it again, set my recovery back at least 2 weeks. Amanda is going to Australia next week and when she gets back we will be going to E-Rock. We will also be getting lead certified, which is going to be a bitch for her when I fall (I am 200lbs, she is 115lbs). In May I will be at Reimers at least twice. Once will be with a group of friends from work to celebrate a group of us getting lead certified. The other time will be with work at what REI calls an ETE or Educational Training Experience. It will be 4 days with reps from all the companies whos gear we sell. Lots of free stuff and lots of getting to play with everything and anything, so looking forward to it. I am going to the Bike ETE this month but not sure how much riding I will be able to do. Riding really stresses my shoulder (more than climbing believe it or not), but hoping to get to shred some hills on some of those fancy $5,000 mountain bikes.

Nice. Those two areas have completely diff flavors but are both good in their own way. My wife is frequently my belayer and she has definitely broken her foot going skyward when I took a big whip. She didn't drop me though!

Yes they are and I can't wait to get out there this and next month. Beginning of the week we did an overnight kayak trip that was really fun and now she want's me to plan a 4-5 day trip down the Frio River.

That sucks for your wife. I have complete trust in Amanda to not let me hit the ground, she may be tiny but damn...………...is that girl strong.

Sounds like you're in condition to take on the Reflection Canyon challenge. About a 20 mile round trip walk in the desert. This month will be the last opportunity before the excessive desert heat. Next opportunity will be after monsoon season when winter starts heavy rains that make 50 mile off road getting there impassable. A mountain bike may be possible. But I've never seen anyone do it on a bike. Vehicles are prohibited on those areas. Anyway, best of wishes on your adventures.

Photos from one of the last games of this season. My son is the goalie in #1 and 3. It was also the first time using my new Sigma 30mm f2.8. I really like it. #4 is a Vivitar 135mm f2. 8.

Nice! I think you got a paparazzi in action in one of your other shots (brunette, pink dress, leaning on the blue post).
