Palm in Boquer, Puerto Pollensa.

Another lovely image.
The portrait of the palm is good but the sky against which it is contrasted is magical and transports this image into greatness.

Thanks, Tony.

We do get some odd skies here at times, a mixture of what I think must be entirely different types that shouldn't run together. My guess is that it must be a product of islands, and being stuck out in the middle of nowhere, with all manner of climatic conditions sweeping unhindered all over us. But it's changing: during the early 80s we had very dramatic lightning and thunderstorms in the winter, often with heavy hail. Every single car I've had here, including the present one, carries roof dents from hail. However, of late, the excitement seems to be more rare, as does the actual rain that comes. Also, I don't think it's as hot. The strong Sahara winds that once drove us indoors seem to have given way, making air-con even less attractive than it ever was. I had a unit installed back in '82 or '83 when I was trying to keep a darkroom going, but I gave up, because of the scarcity of water and the grit that defeated filtration. That unit is now ancient and hardly ever gets switched on: I hate the effect.

Thanks again for the kind comment!

Beautiful, Peter; you have a strong second picture - perhaps even more attractive and thought-provoking -  just by chopping off the top half!

Rob

P.S.

I attach a poem written by a teacher for my grandkids when they returned to Scotland after my wife's funeral in Mallorca.

The autumn convoy of fallen leaves
Sails midstream, in random order,
Over the reflection on dark waters
Of trees with foliage still unshed
- a glory of bronze and reddened gold.

Those colours must gild the memory
When in the long winter months
Trees stand skeletal against the sky
And Spring is but a hope yet to be revived.

Beautiful poem Rob, thank you for sharing that with me...
The bottom half of that picture is the subject for a series of paintings I'm  about to start.

Very nice, Bill. The clouds and the row of grasses (or whatever) to the right make a fine setting for it.

A new image from my autumn shoot out east with Tim Wolcott. This is a four image stitch using a Phase One XF and 80 megapixel back.

Really Fine Steven. The colours look great without being overdone. So you mean this image is about 300 megs in size? Amazing.

Hi John

Thanks for the kind feedack, the files from the Phase are really nice. This is my first shoot with the Phase and xf.  I would have to check the actual file size. I think it was over 900 meg as a tiff. Another image from a different location was 1.6 gb. The colours this year in New Hampshire were just outstanding. I shot some images with my Horseman 617 with velvia and I am dreading seeing them. The reds were so saturated I am concerned the film will lack detail.

Oct 27

Taken with an Oly EM-5 II / 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lens. The 18" X 26" print is tack-sharp. The picture is virtually free of noise.

Some Midwestern color from around my parents' house from a recent visit. Colors are just past peak in SE Michigan.

Wonderful sample, Matt. Autumn colour changes arrived very late this year in Ontario. The nights were not cool enough in late September as they usually are in the central north areas like Haliburton and Algonquin. But they did arrive.
