    I was trying to find Bald Eagle and Otter Lake access on Sunday afternoon, but my GPS sent me to Tamarack lake instead. I didn't want to waste daylight searching for the original spot, so Tamarack lake was the place.

    Nothing wrong with the D-LUX (last shot). Not quite the resolution or dynamic range as the M wth M mount lenses, but great even so.

    Maybe the GPS knew you would like this spot?

    It is beautiful.

    Why do I read «Tanack lake»? I guess I have read too much Leica related literature recently ;)

    Would make for a great afternoon shoot: "Tanack at Tamarack."

    I haven't shot film since... The nineties!

    That water looks lush! Very well done. The 4th one really caught my eye. Post more if you have them :)

    Thanks, DL. I'll take a look, but many of my shots are similar to the above. I'll take many shots from different heights, angles, etc. When I look at themlater, often one jumps out as the best to work with.

    Wasn't there a Star Trek Next Generation episode about that...

    I have a Tanack 5cm F2.

    You're right, sounds familiar :)
    Or was it Original Series Dr McCoy who had the line «I'm not a lawyer, I'm a doctor. I have a Tanack 5cm F2.» ;)

    It was Darmok of the Tamarions! From the episide- Dathon utters the phrase "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra". Obviously they used A Tanack camera...

    Myself and a couple of other Star Trek Geeks spoke like that for months after this episode.
