Last November (2018) I found one from: <goods-store01>, 63" with head.
Right now, <Cameta auctions> has a Nikon 60" for $60 on Ebay.

Take advantage of flat ground and use an old baby stroller!

Those are very nice photos. Where is Apache Lake?


Apache Lake is one of four reservoirs built along the Salt River in central Arizona

Mike, you have traveled far and wide, waited for the correct light and composition, and you now have remarkable sets of images. You are Ansel Adams in color and you should publish one or more books to show the world the beauty of the USA.

I may have been using the wrong word, lo these many years. Is it not gradations and not graduations? I was no Enlish teacher, but strive to not use what my English Teachers referred to as “malaprops.” I am interested to read other opinions or conclusions on this issue of paramount importance.


<larrypage> and <kymorto> have already corrected the mistake: as all academics like myself know, graduation is strictly used for students reaching their final goal; the proper word for gradual change is gradation.

Superb images of a classic scene that served as background to the movie SHANE.

The three 135mm f/2.8 Nikkors that I have, are numbered...226045...854486...and 878571


The 226045 is the first model, yours made ca. 1970; the 854... and 878... the 5th, AI model, made between 1977-1981.

The serial number identifies it as the fifth iteration of the first f/2.8 Q version, non multi-coated, and appears to have been factory modified with the Ai kit 44.
You don’t see many Nikon plastic bubbles these days, especially in this condition.
A better test for sharpness would be to use a tripod, or flash. You did well for $65.


The lens has been modified as AI but according to my records the serial number belongs to the very first model that remained in production from 1965-1974.

ΧΑΙΡΕ/ FAREWELL Gregory, you will be sorely missed.
I wonder: is there provision for UHH to keep showing us his work?

This glass tree is the best and most complicated work of Chihuly yet. He is really developing even after all these years.

It looks like images made with the great 14mm/2.8.

Baz, a great set and I love Orchids but my wife kills them so I no longer buy any.

Orchids need a man to take care of them. Learn how to water them and how to plant them. BTW: they are called orchids because they grow on twin bulbs that resemble a certain male organ.

There is a simpler and more accurate explanation of OK: it comes from the very common Greek words ὅλα καλά, ola kala, meaning "all is well". Its origins are earlier than 1840 but I don't have them handy. There quite a few words in English from these two: like oligarch and composites of calli- (from kalli-).

Excellent landscape capture! What's up with all the red color on the rocks?
