    Big as a small horse they were often fighting. Maybe January was their mating season. One of those got lucky moments. Screetched to a halt, jumped out and pressed the shutter, got lucky. More in 'reply'. Pentax K1 Puerto Natales-1790.jpg

    You captured some great action shots there. I shot Pentax for 40 years before starting on my journey to Mirrorless. My last was K5 and K5IIs. Pentax makes some very rugged near bullet proof cameras for sure. I just never did feel comfortable with any DSLR configuration and missed an aperture ring.

    I made the same journey as yourself. Pentax since 1955. Like you fed up with weight and frankly poor resolution though I may have been half the problem. So happy with Fuji x with its old fashioned top plate dials and aperture ring. Looking forward to upgrading XT1 to XT2 next week. Thanks for remarks.

    Thanks Irene....Hope across the pond to S. Chile and S. Argentina and you will find dream locations and lighting . The Magellan straights, the Moreno glacier and so much more.
    P.S.....Argentina is horribly expensive.

    I always say, "it's better to be lucky than smart!"
    ..
    having the luck and taking advantage of it are 2 separate things...thank god you took advantage - GREAT catch, especially the first and last ones
