    Default K-5 gets an outing in the snow :)

    Here's some from the last few days with the new K-5. The 18-55mm kit lens certainly isn't the best pairing with this body but it's all I have until the other lens arrive.

    For a few years this scene has appealed to me but the light has never been anything special. Passing it on the way to work yesterday I realised it wasn't light I needed, it was snow!

    Very nice, I love the groynes.

    How close did you get to the fantail with the 18-55? Lots of cropping (if so it's pretty good)?

    Liked the first tree one, and fantail was lovely. Did you see the article online about the 3 that flew into a guys laundry in S Canty and refused to leave ! poor things, I put lots of bread and bird seed out on Tuesday once I realised the snow was doing it in for the birds. I have some fat up the back for the waxeyes in a tree so hopefully they could get at it (cant see due to the scaffolding out the back)

    I reckon if I'd laid down in the snow he would've come close enough for the 18-55mm but I was cold enough already! No that was with the Sigma 100-300mm @250mm and cropped about 100%.

    Yes I did se that Rose, also got us to thinking so we did the same, bought a fat / bread crumb ball from the Mad Butcher on Tuesday and they loved it! Silly mistake though to let the dog out for a leak as it was within reach and she finished it off! She wasn't too well for a few hours afterwards . Yesterday I treated the Silver Eyes to hot cross buns, especially for the likes of this poor fella.
