I so love that country, and you represent it so very well. John
Unique presentation, I like it!
Hi fellow vets. This morning we awoke to fog, allowing me to view again what I saw as I exited my church after yesterday morning's services [of course no camera]. This is a memorial to those of us who saw military service during the Viet Nam Era, and all other vets as well. Photos taken with Olympus EM1-2 and EM5-2 with minimal PP. I did not realize how tough it is to achieve passable JPEG pics in such a difficult conditions. But I think the fog helps to convey my message. It's just too bad that I did not have this same opportunity prior to National Viet Nam Veterans Day on March 29, for posting then. Memorial is in Chisholm, MN.
Great shots Katy; takes me back to when we lived in rural Montana and their nesting in the fields across the road. They would perch on the fence posts and sing their hearts out.
Love this bomber. I used to live in Billings, MT in the 1970's where about a half dozen of these planes (privately owned) were stationed for use as water bombers in wildfire suppression. It was a real treat to see them fly out on early morning missions toward the mountains where the fires were burning. I think one is still on display there, but the rest were sold off to collectors in flying condition. John
The teleconverter could interest me. Model 140 CA, right? Is this the discontinued one?
Let me check my Tamron lens specs today and I will get back to you.
Yes, this is the discontinued model, I used it on my Canon 70-200L f4, IS, it is still widely available, new, from Amazon and other sources. It appeared as sharp as the Canon 1.4 TC, but will not work with the 100-400 MK 2. It works very well and in fact works with some lenses that the Canon brand TC won't. See this link from B&H for some of the details https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/185148-REG/Tamron_AF14PC700_1_4x_SP_Pro_Teleconverter.html

Lovely shot--I miss not living in Montana, probably the greatest state in the union for beautiful scenery. John
I am impressed with the IQ you are getting with the R and attached RF lens. Also looks like 8844 needs a bit of body work behind the cab--a minor collision perhaps? John
nikonshooter...I don't do astro, but surely appreciate the efforts of those few who do, and do it so well. John
Yes, a great online store (never been to the bricks & mortar store). They even send you 100 free purchase points on your birthday!!
During the years we lived in Billings, it was an annual rite of spring for good wife and me to make the trip; that is if the pass was open. The drifts were sometimes as high as 15 feet or more. Kind of like driving through a snowy canyon--beautiful state, and I still miss it after twenty years. John
