Three images from Beegderveen in the province of Limburg, The Netherlands. After the extremely dry and hot summer the lakes had near dried out, but plenty of water there now after months of seemingly endless grey and rain. I was hoping for a good sunrise, and in several parts of the country there was, but here it was all blue.

The 16-35 had an accident while on holiday in the US last year but came out alright, or so I thought. Months later the front ring started to wobble, but as it only holds the filter ring and no optics are connected this was fine. Then it started to rattle a bit and eventually is would not zoom beyond 20 mm. No biggie because I use it at 16 mm generally. Then it stopped working altogether, big freeze-up. To the shop and a complete overhaul and hefty financial injection later it is better than new. My favorite lens, it works well with LA-EA3 and has the benefit that the A7Rii doesnít stop it down during manual focusing like it does on FE lenses, which turns the viewfinder into a noisy mess when youíre working at dawn.

The first image, lens pointed down, suffered from perspective distortion causing the trees to fan out badly. I corrected that, but that worsens the issue on the reflection. Saving up for a Canon TS-E 17mm f/4.0L tilt-shift lens. Long exposure filters will then be hidden in El Cheapo EOS-NEX adapter.

Great stuff Paul! Interesting thoughts on using a tilt shift for when you point down as well. I always think of them for architecture and pointing up. Hard to pick a favorite here but Iíll go with the third for the circular theme as you put it.
Only caveat is Iím looking at these on my phone so Iím a bit frustrated not to get a more comfortable view of the shots.

Very nice Paul, for me also the third is my favourite but the subtle blue in all of them works out very well.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

The third one is an extraordinary image - well seen and well taken!

I like all three, particularly their mood!

TFS!
