Sunflower field with lavender and wheat fields beyond on a typical english summer day.

The blobs of bokeh are humans picking lavender.

Tamron SP 70-200mm f2.8 Di VC USD + Sigma MC-11

 

Waited so long for a proper 70-200mm zoom lens and first thought of having a native lens on Sony A7RII. Considering the price of Sony 70-200 2.8 GM and the fact that I only need it occasionally, ended up getting the Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 VC USD based on the dxomark + reviews read.

Wow what a lens! This lens is stunning and I'm completely impressed. Looks like I may end up using it for more bokeh shots at f2.8 :)

 

Late Summer in the moorlands of Blavand, Jylland, Denmark

My firend Akash keeps on telling me to stop clicking Flowers. But when I look at such a beauty like this, I just cannot stop myself

Just love how the small flowers of this Clematis cascade over the pergola that supports them.

 

Thanks for all the kind comments and faves, they are so appreciated.

A riot of colors surrounding a summer flower on one of my cacti. Sorry I haven't been on Flickr in the last few days and now I will again be on and off for a few days!!

Going through my summer pictures, I found this one that I really liked. I had a request from Bulgary to buy a picture from that day.

 

I am still amazed that someone from the other side of the earth is touched by my picutre.

summer song

 

Summer song

summer long

summer sounds

of summer throng

 

summer light

summer night

summer feels

alive and bright

 

Floating breezes

fresh and free

gentle sunkissed

bumble bee

curling creatures

sleeping so

marching ants

they come and go

tall grass bends

in sun lit beams

medows shimmer

golden gleams

birds call out

their summer song

dawn to dusk

singing long

bubbling brooks

with silver waters

bluebells dance

like woodlands daughters

velvet moss

enfolds the boulder

tree stumps covered

shadied; colder

for-get-me-nots

smile in their place

mischievious little dainty face

 

Summer song

summer long

summer sounds

of summer throng

 

summer light

summer night

summer feels

alive and bright

"Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher"

W. Wordsworth

Its Summer in Oregon, that means waterfalls. I had the good fortune of hanging out with Bill McIntosh while he was on a trip to the Pacific Northwest. Per the usual Bill it was 3 hours of sleep each night and usually 7 hours of driving each day. Chasing light. I am far less adventurous when near home, and in between work days, so my radius was less forgiving. We found a common time, but it was mid day, not the best light to shoot anything except waterfalls. Well, we have one or two of those here in Oregon.

 

We met at my place and I drove form there, hoping to do a Bill-like whirlwind tour of about 6 waterfalls in one afternoon, literally. We set out for Lower Downing Falls first, my favorite. Nope. Bad traffic accident in Detroit, so we turned around and headed for the mighty, the favorite, Abiqua Falls. They were close at that point. So it was through Scott's Mill and into the dirt. Bill was zonked before we started (that's why I was driving) and I had just spent 6 hours walking around Seattle the day before. I thought Abiqua would be good because you can drive right up to it, then a short scramble down the hill. I had been there twice, but it seems I did not remember the 'scramble' all that well. The hill was tougher than I recalled. Down was not so bad. I alreday let him down by missing Lower Downing, so I was hoping this one would blow him away. Success.

 

All the pain, all the tiredness washed off his face in a flash. Especially this fall because its situated around a mossy-tree-covered corner, so it has a dramatic reveal as you approach it. His camera was out in a flash. The crowds were not all that bad, but they are usually ant-like in this huge cavernous basalt cathedral. We split up occasionally shouting great compositions to each other. Bill is GREAT to shoot with because he does not horde great comps. He shares. He will actually move his tripod to let you get the same shot if he loves what he saw. I appreciate shooting with Bill because some photographers will get a stunning comp and then keep it a secret in some kind of competition. I called out this scene but by the time Bill got there the light rays were gone.

 

It was my plan to go from here to Silver Falls State Park to shot the many fantastic falls they have, but by the time we went back up that evil hill...forgetaboutit. So it was off to punish Bill by having dinner with my kids. My beautiful wife balances out the pain though because she is a delight to everyone who meets her.

 

Bill was then off to the coast to get a Milky Way image at Hug Point, and I was off to bed to go to work the next day.

 

So thank you for the company Bill, it was great and I can't wait to see your post of the Falls. Everyone, go look at his stream (actually, you may not ever come back to mine if you do :)).

You and I have spoken all these words

but for the way we have to go,

words are no preparation.

I have one small drop of knowing in my soul.

Let it dissolve in your ocean.

PLEASE, DO NOT INVITATION TO GROUPS

Fishhook Creek splashes through an open area into summer. Hard to find an open area, as willows and vegetation abound on the banks in the high country. Thanks for looking and a happy weekend and holiday to all.
