Another of my first batch of shots with the new Pentax K-1. Beautiful images, great autofocus, and great tonal range. Like it a lot!

Agassiz tree farm by Robby-Robert
Agassiz tree farm
An area owned by a developer who couldn't convince the Agricultural land reserve to put bloody houses here, so he started planting turnips, then whatever he thought would stink up the area. When that didn't work, he finally planted something he could sell. Anyways, this is my first day with my new Pentax K-1. Massive camera, full frame, 36 mp images. I still had to downsize this image, from around 7360x4912 to about 3000 wide instead.

Just watched the documentary "Searching for Sugar Man" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Searchin… last night, and was immediately captured by the music, even before I heard anything about the story. A very captivating doc, but the central figure in the documentary was called "Rodriguez". No first name, no clue to who he was. Anyway, long story short, I highly recommend the movie. As well as the music itself. If you're a child of the sixties, ( as I am), and came of age in the  seventies, then there is something about the combination of rock, ballads, and over produced violins that nothing can beat. 
He produced two albums, and not mentioned in the documentary, he also toured in Australia in the 70's. My favourite piece is "cause". Some harsh language here, nothing too horrible.

A tree hugging, artistic, astronaut wannabe. Hate Corporations, and Extreme Right wing politics. (sorry! can't please everyone!) I think the planet is beyond saving at this point, but we gotta keep trying anyway. And by that, I mean, the planet will survive just fine without us, but most of the life as we know it will probably go extinct with us. I go between hoping the economy will collapse, so we stop developing everything within our field of view, and hoping we conquer space, so we can keep going, long enough to grow the hell up!


Live long, and prosper!

Thanks! There's always something brewing. Right now, I'm building the polar lights 1/350th scale Enterprise Refit. It's humongous.
After I purchase the lighting kits, and whatever I build from scratch, it'll be the star attraction for a while!
Robert.

High praise! 
Over the years, I have been extremely lucky to live in a place with so much beauty. A small percentage of what I've shot has turned out okay!
I still wince at what I've shot, and hope the faults and errors in my work are not too noticeable.
Anyways, I'll try my best to keep developing (tiny photographic pun), hopefully, as I get older, things won't dry up, inspiration wise.
LLAP!
Robert.

Developing...huh, huh, I get it.
I am awed by your gallery, not just the photos,
the paintings, drawings, miniature work, is there 
anything you can't do? Your range of talent is really
impressive. I am lime green with envy.

Uhmm, well there's always my complete deficit of powers regarding women, but we'll leave that out for now, as I'm approaching the airlock of life, rather than the bird of youth!
I used to have a friend, we grew up together, and learned all we could about photography, and visual effects. We even had a partnership and did some of the work I've posted here, but eventually, he left for Toronto, and I just couldn't uproot my life. He went on to greener pastures, and even won a Canadian Gemini award for the effects work on the tv movie of the week, "Arrow", about the Canadian attempt to manufacture the world's best fighter/recon aircraft. Anyways, I've  always felt a little bit of envy for what he achieved, but also happiness for him. 
However, almost all of the effects work these days is cgi, (Interstellar notwithstanding) and it just leaves me cold, not for what it can accomplish, but the process. It just doesn't interest me. I love the hand made crap that makes people go "holy cow".
So, yeah! Thanks!
