Went out with my wife's little Canon Megazoom Monster today and spent some time in the coastal dunes.

 

Sorry Charles, no foxes! To see those, I need to get out of bed extra early or be in the dunes late afternoon.

 

Anyway, here's a couple of shots to give you an impression of what I encountered...

 

Equipment: Canon SX50 HS

Attached Files


Equipment: D810 | D300 | D50 | B700 | P5000 and some lenses.

Software: Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 + NIK Software Suite

Scott, I was very apprehensive in placing the last image BUT thought it was such a :D :lol: :D seeing this dude walking through the dunes.

 

Anyway, I considered it appropriate for self-censorship in this instance.  No offence meant to any Planateer!

No offense taken.  As Jim said, I too thought the backpack was ironic.  Just glad he had his back turned.  The series is pretty nice.  European deer are so different than our American cousins.

What I meant was how well the camera handled the dynamic range!

The wife says I don't explain things that well  :(

Yes, yes, Gary, I agree re the dynamic range!

Funny, my wife says I don't interpret things that well :(

That's strange, Art... it shows up on my screen! Perhaps your monitor needs adjusting...
