It could keep you busy all day. Nice collection of images.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Lovely. The second one (distant track) is my favourite.

I haven't been there since my undergraduate days, too long ago.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I'm enjoying the detail you have captured: the feather in particular is a nice touch.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

Nice set Gary, loving the feather and the gnarly old tree
