After being sick for a while I started hiking again by walking around this large grass-covered field at Macricostas Preserve, right down the road from us.
I’ve been hiking around this field for almost 20 years now (it used to be a corn field) and know it well. In a few places on the perimeter you can shoot it in a way that makes it look much larger than it actually is and this is one of those places.
First time I’ve stopped the X70 down to f/16 and I like the results.
Flickr member Enrok took this picture of a monastery tucked into a hill in Sicily with a Fuji X100S.
Flickr member Enrok took this picture on Sri Lanka with a Fuji X100S.
I love the heavy, almost pre-historic atmosphere in this image.
Flickr member Wolfgang Krassnitzer posted this serene image of an Austrian landscape taken with his Fuji X-Pro2.
The light and cloud shadows make this landscape much more interesting than it might have been otherwise.
Flickr member Koos de Wit shot this great sunrise landscape in The Netherlands with his Fuji X-E2 and a Fuji XF 10-24mm f/4 lens opened up to it’s widest (15mm in 35mm terms) angle setting.
Brilliant landscape image and that lens continues to impress me. Too bad I don’t have a camera that takes interchangeable lenses… oh dear.
Flickr member Steven McDougall posted this fantastic image of the MSC Splendida cruise ship docked on the coast of England, taken with his Fuji X-T1.
What makes this image interesting to me is the container cranes next to a docked passenger ship, and the foreground rocks. That ship must need deep water to dock so seeing shallow water up close and the ship docked in the background makes for a nice contrast.
Flickr member Mark Candlin posted this excellent shot of Pembrookshire Beach, UK, taken with his Fuji X-Pro1.
Fantastic detail in the waves and shadows.
Flickr member M Hillis posted this excellent shot of Gaspereau Lake, Nova Scotia taken with his Fuji X-E2.
Flickr member M Hillis posted a dramatic 30 second exposure of Arethusa Falls, New Hampshire taken with his Fuji X-E2. A very well framed, exposed, and processed image.

No matter how one feels about commercial clear cutting for timber, Joe Freeman’s haunting images of the desolation left after a big clear cutting operation are incredible.
These images were shot with a large format camera at Snoqualmie Pass, east of Seattle, Washington of a clearcutting job that was probably done close to 100 years ago. The trees were preserved because the area was turned into a reservoir and under water.
