I think three days of plenty of clouds is enough for now. Under the overcast sky the construction area under the power transmission lines looks pretty bleak. Maybe this is the way the world will look in a hundred years … Continue reading

Good morning to try out the Sigma 60mm lens on sunrise flares. Hmmm-m, well it does have flare, much more than the Sony 30mm macro lens. At least it doesn’t cover my eye like the Sony 18-105mm lens. Guess I’ll … Continue reading
