    Thanks. I think that valley frequently gets spectacular clouds, I can see them over the mountains from my house. I am just never there to take pictures. Later in the day that cloud developed into a spectacular series of lenticular clouds but I got a flat tire so I went home. I redid the blue picture to equalize the reflection better, but I won't bother to repost it.

    D70FAN - you're correct, it's PRECISELY that time of the year (for Hanami - which for the uninitiated means "flower viewing", but it's specifically Cherry Blossom Viewing). Peak around this area (West side of Tokyo) was yesterday or maybe it's today. I expect that tomorrow the cherry petals will start falling pretty fast and by early next week they'll all be on the ground. Hopefully they'll still be photo worthy tomorrow as I have tomorrow free. And, hopefully the weather will cooperate tomorrow too.

    It's almost ironic that we have an entire local sub-economy based on cherry orchards in Gilroy, and I never seem to have the camera with me or the time to go shoot "the bloom" every year.

    But it's more striking with the cityscape of Tokyo in the background.

    Missed a couple of spectacular sunsets late last week. I guess I can't catch them all. I'd sure like to though. This ended up being my best shot of the week, but the sunset was a bust. In other news, I swapped my 24 TS for the 17 TS. Looking forward to trying it out.

    Ditto down here. By the time the sun sets the fog has rolled on in.

    Another nice shot Lucas.

    So the 24 TS was not quite wide enough. I would have a hard time justifying landscape work with anything longer than the 24, at least knowing how I use lenses that wide without tilt function. Isn't the 17 a bit more expensive than the 24?

    Yeah, it costs more. I bought the 24 used so I didn't take much of a hit. I've been thinking about this one for awhile. It's much harder to find a 17mm lens with good corner sharpness and it's a better focal length for me. The biggest plus for the 24 was the filter threads, but I've found a DIY method for mounting filters on a 17 at the expense of full shift. Samyang is also releasing a 24 TS soon for about 1100-1200 less than Canon version. I had major concerns about a drop in the used price of the Canon and therefore an increased price for me to upgrade, so I decided to pull the trigger.

    One from the fall. It's been pretty slow with the camera lately

    Definitely one to blow up large and put on the wall. Great shot, nicely done Lukas.
