Father's Day 2007
Jun 17, 2007

Photos taken my 2nd weekend with the K10D. Used the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 for all; very much as a "learning experience" in both in-focus and out-of-focus areas.

Rhododendron confusion (Macro)

Confused Rhododendron trying to bloom in mid-Fall. A slight warm spell was enough to trigger it I guess.

Shot with the Pentax K10D and Pentax K10D and Voigtländer 125mm f/2.5 between 1:1 and 1:2 macro.
