    I've just returned from a three-week motorcycle trip through Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, and managed to capture some images I thought would be worth sharing here. Some of my favorites:

    I took a 16 day trip to Japan with my wife to witness the fall foliage last November. We were lucky enough to see the first snow in Mt Fuji area. It was a great experience. I will post these pictures in to 3 threads. One of each city.

    3 days in yosemite national park. We've been through thunder storm, hail, snow. Two major highways were closed due to the heavy rain. We were lucky enough to witness the precious moment.

    I was fortunate enough to spend some time in this area recently. To say that the scenery was breathtaking is surely an understatement. I hope I was able to capture even a small part of that beauty in these images. All shots with the A6000.

    I've had this little lens of a couple weeks now (actually over a months but it took an eternity for the adaptor to arrive). I can say already with confidence I really like this lens a lot. Spent some time in the city with it now I need to get up the mountain's.

    Some of you may recall my Falls in Fall 2016 rump.

    Well I had a blast, but if I had one regret it was not making it to Watkins Glen State Park. In my opinion, it’s home to the most beautiful gorge and waterfall in the Northeast US. So for autumn 2017, I made sure it was my first stop. And boy was it worth the trip!

    This is from a tiny tourist village called "Kokkari" (but probably the most well known!) in the Greek island of Samos, which I was fortunate to spend my summer vacations with the family. This place is so photogenic - everywhere you look there's a beautiful frame!

    It only has something like 100 permanent residents with just a few places open in winter, but at the summer months its full of life with locals that run the businesses (must be like 100 taverns, cafes, bars, souvenis shops etc!) and lots of tourists. Its a place for relaxing vacations not a place for intense night life like many Greek islands - as a family guy with 2 small kids, I prefer it that way :D

    I also had a chance to try my new Nisi ND1000 100x100 square filter system (which is so great!!!)

    I took a lot of photos but here are just some of my long exposure ones - hope you like them :)

    My early wake ups (5am), even in my summer vacations, were so worth it!!!

    Finally managed to drag myself out of bed well before sunup. Took a trip up Sydney's Northern Beaches for some sunrise action over Mona Vale Ocean Pool and rock platform. It's a bit of a home coming for me given Mona Vale being the place of my birth. Also visited Narrabeen Ocean pool just to the south where I sat and enjoyed my morning coffee and took a few B&W shots.

    Hello,

    For those who did not follow the unfortunate adventure I have with my A7R, I had to switch back to the A7 for a while. Still waiting for a positive outcome but nonetheless I missed no photo since my A7 is up and running. Just realized how capable this camera is...really happy with my latest photographs. Never give up...

    At the request of another forum member (thank you Eric and thanks for your comments), I'm posting this photo for all to see. The story behind it is that a few weeks ago I had gotten up early to visit Sawhill Ponds here in Boulder. It's something of a wildlife refuge with a bunch of ponds and trails reclaimed from an old gravel mine. We'd had rain the night before and I thought the sunrise might be interesting with everything still being wet. However, there were low clouds still in the east and after traipsing around for about an hour and still not seeing the sun, I gave up and headed back to the car. Just as I got to the parking lot, the sun finally rose above the clouds and things suddenly came to life. I only had a few seconds, as the light was rapidly changing and more cars were about to pull into the lot. The camera was still mounted onto a tripod, so I very quickly got off a few shots...right there in the parking lot. So the foreground is actually mud puddles in a parking lot! Shooting directly into the sun, I bracketed three exposures (+2 and -2). Now I only kept two of the exposures (and I'm not even sure which two they were) and created a HDR photo using Nik software which, in turn, I processed again in Nik Silver Efex to get black and white. The color version is also on my Flickr site, but I much prefer the black and white version. Most of the other processing consisted of some very selective burning and dodging in Lightroom using the brush tool. I'm still learing how to do all of this post processing stuff, but I can say that using Nik and Lightroom enables me to do things I never thought possible before. And, if you want to learn how to use these programs, there are a ton of FREE tutorials online.
    Thanks for looking and glad to be a member here!

    * Cross posted this in Mu-43 since I used both Sony and M43!

    If there was ever a city made for street photography, Bangkok gets my vote. This is where street photographers are born! This city literally puts all your senses at 10 and you can be inserted anywhere in BKK and start shooting away. The moment you hit the streets, you're exposed to overwhelming sights, sounds, smells, people and architecture all thrown together. It's a very visceral city and unlike anything I've experienced before. I melted into the environment walking the streets, consuming the local street food and blending into the endless maze of people.

    You can see the photo set in it's entirety on Flickr

    Shots I posted here are with the Sony A7 II + Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 II + 40mm 1.4 MC Nokton + Techart Pro AF Adapter!

    So much water, so little time. With large downpours over the past week and more forecast I've managed to tick a couple waterfalls off my list. I have a few more I want to get to but there's so much water about at the moment they're inaccessible. Here what I got up too.
