H in a contemplative mood. I make it at least 6 months since my last upload of H on a rope swing - a new record in self restraint for me considering how many I have.

From a swing set that I stumbled across from September and couldn't remember taking.

Every year I do a large Blurb book for my mother of shots of the kids from throughout the year and while it's a pain in the rear and a lot of work It does force me to go back and look at what I shot during the year and always turn up stuff that I've either overlooked first time round or just plain forgotten about.

Now those that have followed my stream for a while will know that I like to shoot into the light and for flare. Now I've got quite a few nice bits of kit but one thing I hate about the new Nano coating that Nikon puts on it's lenses like the 14-24mmG or the 24-70mmG (to reduce flare) is than when you do push them to flare the results are normally either horrible or too unpredictable to use for shooting for flare on purpose. Anyway, here's one that I overlooked previously and that I actually do like the flare in (from the otherwise wonderful 14-24mm).

Given how popular the look is you would think that someone would actually design a lens for pretty and predictable flare.

My preference for lenses when shooting for flare in descending order (all Nikon): 85mm 1.8 D, 70-200mm2.8 VR 1 (but only with a cheap (non MRC) UV filter on, otherwise it's hard to get decent flare out of and I never use a uv filter other than when shooting for flare), 85mm 1.4 D and lastly the much more random and splotchy 50mm 1.4G

What is it with boys and sticks?

I normally warm the heck out of these in post but cooled this one down instead.

More sun today and just before it went below the tree line in the distance it was just fabulous. If only it could be like that all the time.
