Shot of my cat (i hate cats, but not this one) while sitting in bed last week, post ACL reconstruction. One of my first shots with the Pentax K10D.
He was cleaning himself and I knew he'd yawn but it
came a little too soon as the clouds came in and turned
the window light down a few stops before i could up the
iso. ended up shooting at f/2.0 which was much too shallow.



One of my first shots with my Pentax D (the original Pentax DSLR). Actually this was the 9th image i'd shot with the camera. ISO 800 and nice and clean in the highlights shadows

aren't too shabby either.



And the big adventure.

My wife looking very concerned in the family waiting room before we got called back to preop holding. She wasn't concerned about me, just the $31,000 bill she is the guarantor

on...actually our share is a meager $4000.
The best surgeons in the world aren't free.



And the $31,000 knee along with my albatros (aka. the brace)






A panorama of Camden Yards, the ball park that revitalized baseball and ended multipurpose cookie cutter stadiums forever.




Max Sapp doubleing to the gap.



My dog (for climbsomething, cause I know she loves him) climbing what I'd honestly rate about 5.3. Notice the lockoff before the mantle. And you don't get to see the mantle start

to get on the slab which was a work of art. Nice work.



Me being stupid testing out the joints and the custom presurgical ACL brace (another $700). My wife served as my human tripod.
This was the best of about 25 attempts. Don't tell the Doc
I'm an idiot.




Don't worry, stupidity is entirely genetic. My brother lauching down a swollen spring river. I missed the landing but he didn't. BTW, he's living proof they will give anyone a gun and a shield.



Florentino and Buchanan turning two. Nice peak of action shot.



Spike McDougal (the name has pro written all over it) beating the tag by Chris Johnson.



Pickoff was a bit late to nail superman:



Fall in NY:

Platte Clove in the Catskills


Dusk over Mason Lake, just outside the West Canada Lakes (yes, it's in NY) Wilderness.


Panorama of the view from Sugarloaf over the Southern Catskills and the Ashokan Reservoir.



And a few shots of Arlington National Cemetary, former home of one of my historical idols, Robert Lee (nothing to do with slavery or racism so grow up), and current home of some

of our nations greatest heros. The changing of the Honor Guard is something I've loved since childhood. The Honor Guard of the 3rd ID has ceremonially guarded the Tomb of the

Unknowns 24/7/365 for about the last 70 years. Hurricanes, blizzards, 110F heat, they walk the mat. And they do it voluntarily on their free time. Every motion, step, even the

shoulder they carry the rifle on while walking the mat has a symbolic purpose.

Here's a couple more recent ones:

I like the hockey shots (though not the teams in 'em). I also think we should veto any more kitty/dog shots. Howvever the canine redpoint free solo of the 5.3 was pretty badass...

Got a 5d the other day, and 15 mm on Full Frame is W I D E!

bump +













Had a chance to shoot the gymnastics with a 1d Mark II, and you have not lived until you shoot at 8.5fps! Now just have to work one of those into the budget...

I just got most of the way through my post here, and Firefox died. Oh well, I'll try again. Non climbing shots are way easier to come by right now... too much snow!!!

Theoretically, you should be able to click on the picture to see the original size.

your golden eagle shot is awesome...very tight and sharp!! Lens and distance info please?

btw, was this a natural shot or in captivity. the background looks clean so matter what it's a nice shot but your so close it would require a super specialized lens to get such a good shot in the wild.

Thanks! The eagle was in captivity, she is a rescued raptor, in the shot you can see her wings aren't exactly even. When I saw her, she was being handled outside her cage and fed a freshly killed prairie dog. They let me get about 10ft away from her. I took all of the shots with my D70, and the eagle shot was: 1/400s at f5.0 using my 70-300mm VR lens at 165mm.

definitely would have been tough to crop in like that in a natural setting with the 70-300 but it looks like it was the perfect lens for the job. good exposure and nice and sharp. really like it. all my eagle shots have been natural and the bird hasn't been far off (in a tree under our boat several times) but I've always been caught with the wrong gear (wide-short tele zooms and a converter in a rocking boat, gear that works best for paddling, not wildlife) while paddling. the results are heavily post scan crops and not so sharp.





fresh prairie dog...yummie!!!

Nice landscapes too. I like the line of small rocks in the 2nd photo that lead your eye into the photo from left to right.

Did you use a polarizer on the first photo?

Unfortunately, the (Sweetheart, there's no film in the camera) line doesn't work with digital cameras...

That's great. I'm gigglin right now and my co-workers are looking at me like "why aren't you working'.

Keep trying though, you might get lucky and get a good shot.
