    The foliage around here has really popped in the past week. I made a quick stop on the way home from work at a little place called Wine Cellar Park, named after the abandoned wine cellars that are still located there. A one-half mile climb up a hill leads to Laura Anderson Lake. With my NEX-6 and Pen F 25/4, I captured the first 4 photos. Note the widest view photo has power lines crossing the lake in the distance. Shameful what we'll do to have cable TV. ;) A bit of digital trickery removed the power lines from the other two photos that showed them.

    The last two photos are with the NEX-6 and Pen F 38/1.8, at a place called Ridenour Lake, not far from our home. I talked my wife into a bit of sunset chasing before dinner. Enjoy.

    How about a two-photo panorama of the first lake with the power lines removed? I'm really liking the Pen F 25/4 on the NEX-6.

    Thanks Jim. It was fairly easy with GIMP. The harder part was getting rid of the power lines . . . that operation took me about 3 hours, cloning out 5 pixels at a time to ensure a good color match. Phew! You can bet I did a lot of file saving during that time.
