PLAY February - Fuji 18mm f/2: The Opposite Bank

This is the Etang du Trégu - Trégu Lake - more properly known as Le Ruisseau de la Chèze. A classic scene for a wide-angle lens... happily!

This is for my PLAY project - you can read more about it in my profile - where I'll be using a different prime lens for each month of the year: for February it's the Fujinon 18mm f/2 on an APS-C sensor camera (today the Fuji X-Pro1) - the equivalent of a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera.

This is also for the Flash of Red 2017 challenge.

As usual - BoB!
Really stunning

Terrific capature and what wonderful reflections.
February 16th, 2017  
Simply Stunning.
February 16th, 2017  
Wonderful, Richard! That's all!
February 16th, 2017  
Marvelous. Gives every impression of having been shot from a tripod, but when I look at the EXIF, probably not. Wonderful scene.

@scotthouston Thank you Scott - no hand-held... and without in-camera stabilisation. If you look at my post in this album for January 13, you'll see a post of Paimpont Abbey which was taken with the same camera and lens hand-held at 1/10 sec!

@vignouse Right ... that other photo is a lovely shot. A lot more forgiving than a D800; but then most things are, except maybe the tax office.
February 17th, 2017  
@scotthouston The TO forgives no-one :-(( I also have a D600, D610 and D750 - when I bought each one it was a choice between that and a D800/810 - each time I decided against the higher pixel count precisely because of its unforgiving nature.

i am quite taken by those skeletal trees in the far back. whenever i see something like that i have to take a shot. it's one of the beauty of winter that most people could not or do not see. the reflections are a bonus. aces!

So good to see this on TT Richard...it's a terrific landscape.
February 24th, 2017  
I am so glad to see this made the Top Twenty! Congratulations Richard!
February 25th, 2017  
Great image just seen it in the TT. Looking at your Exif it say f5.6 aperture just being nosy but where did you focus to keep the image this sharp?
February 25th, 2017  
@rjb71 Thank you Richard - as best as I can recall, I focussed on the top of the trees' reflection - equidistant between foreground and background.
February 25th, 2017  
Great "strong" photo Richard. FAV from me as well.
February 27th, 2017  
Lovely black & white. Congratulations on Top Twenty.
