I need to go to a captive raptor event to get some of these close-up portraits. The feather and eye details are just amazing and fun to see.

Great shot, Ed.

Looks like a keeper to me. Great shot.

(Check the horizon. Looks like an ocean is sliding right to left).

The Davenport Crack on a heavy surf day. For this photo, I was standing barefoot in the middle of the creek in ~3" of water but had to restart the long exposure timer when the water was suddenly up to my thighs. I didn't expect this since the opening to the crack was ~150' away. Now that I look at the vegetation on the rock wall, I should have planned better!

Wonderful pose and background.

I pulled up to one today, on a fence post, ten-feet from my car window. It startled both of us, but it didn't fly immediately. As I did start to reposition, it flew. Couldn't filled the frame of my iPhone, if I'd had my wits.

Wow! Very nice.

I got nothing nearly so good yesterday, but I did find a great spot to hang out and hope for action like that:

Picked up a new lens last week - Voigtlander Macro APO-Lanthar 65mm f/2. Here is an evening test shot at the Santa Clara train station platform at f/2 with close focus to check out the rendering, bokeh and background fall off.

I like what I see so far. A super sharp, well corrected, manual focus, all around lens that is fun and easy to use. A bit heavy, and while decent for Macro's and portraits, the 65mm length is a bit long for many landscapes, which is why I bought the lens. Great sun/light stars as you can see from this night time view of the Santa Clara police office.

Great spot to get light-stars.

I couldn't find any CA at that size image.

I've got Sony's FE 85mm f/1.4 GM, which has incredible IQ, but I find it limiting for landscapes, where I'm much more likely to grab the 12-24/f4 G or 24-105/f4 G OSS. 65mm is even more of a "tweener" for me, where I'd want longer for portraits or considerably shorter for landscapes.

The 100-400 is still the only Sony lens I own. I use my more rounded out Fuji kit for landscapes.

Nice pose and incredible background.

As you know, I went whole cloth from Canon to Sony, so my new bag is full of nothing but incredible G and GM Sony glass. LOVE IT!

Just got back from a week exploring the coast of Maine. This boat was beached at Orr's Island.
