Thanks Denny - landscapes are not my usual type of photograph to take - but it happens, especially when the wildflowers are this pretty. The purple ones are liatris - blooming all over central TX currently because of the fall rains we have been blessed with.
I was just at a local shop and was talking with the propritor. He was telling me that a pro tog he's taken several courses with has disposed of all of his Canon pro cameras and lenses and bought the E-M5. He does a lot of hiking in the mountains and said it's a joy to have such small, light kit with him, and he loves the quality of images he's getting with it.
I have seen many a photo in the magazines of the Texas wildflowers Anne, it's a great state for that and birds.
Yes Denny, Texas has amazing diversity, and it never ceases to amaze me how some of these flowers grow in the dry conditions we have here in the central part of the state.
Nice work, Anne.
Well, I finally took a photo with my 5D today! It was the kind of shot where a meaningful comparison might have been possible: careful (relatively) setup with tripod, 10-stop ND, long exposure... Unfortunately, by the time I'd done all that with the E-M5, I couldn't face doing it all again with the 5D, so I just took the same approximate view, hand-held.
Later on, as the light was beginning to fade, I drove into a small village and found that some wild Red Deer had wandered down off the mountains and were grazing beside the road right in the centre of the village! Cue some hand-held shots with the E-M5 and 75-300 which when viewed on my iPad look pretty sharp, and even a few seconds of HD video, and I'm asking myself whether I really care how much better IQ the Canon might be capable of producing. The Olympus is just so convenient and versatile, and seems to produce images of very good quality. Do I really need anything else? And would I take the 5D with me anyway? Or take the time to use it?
Don't get me wrong: I do still want to take some competitive shots, and I will do so soon (although apparently not on this short holiday, since I go home tomorrow.
that's a good shot Anne, I'm not usually that keen on HDR but you've worked it well.
(Its interesting to see Liatris growing in the wild, we have a few of these in our garden but they look totally different in a more doemsticated situation, mixed with everything else)

Nice macros Denny. Beautiful flowers. You have your own little bit of paradise you can visit

That's how I feel Anne. We have our son and his 2 children stay with us each weekend, and I enjoy the company, but I miss my daily trips through the zoo. Since I started, one month ago, I've lost 8 lbs, all from the exercise.
I know that if I get that 60mm Macro, I'll have back issues for certain.
