    That's the first picture I've seen of Buttermilk. It looks like I will be coming Saturday afternoon sometime and staying through Sunday afternoon (but you know me - don't engrave that in stone just yet). I will DEFINATELY be at buttermilk falls around sunrise for some "quiet light" shooting Sunday morning! Thanks for the update and info, john!

    I think I may have mentioned earlier that at one of our Hiking Hounds events we walked to the bottom of this falls. While one of the owners was not looking his dog, about Labrador size, climbed about half way up the falls. The owner then climbed about a third of the way up trying to talk his dog down. The girls and I just sat back and admired, thanking someone that it was not us.

    Isn't that a retired person's purpose in life?

    Thank you so much for the visual update. I am really getting excited about the journey and meeting the new friends.

    I just picked up a Voigtlander 12mm M mount lens to use on my rangefinders I will bring along, having experimented with it for about an hour and a half as I look at the falls I bet I will need a snorkel to use it right with these falls, you have to get so close to things to get a presence in the frame.

    So hikes begin at 0830? Any hearty 0600 people out there to do some pre hike hikes? I got one of those 0422 AM biological clocks that God blessed/cursed me with and maybe there is an opportunity to do a few night shots too somewhere.

    Lee,

    I have the C/V 15mm with M adapter. If you'd like to try that out, let me know and I'll bring it. I usually bring 35mm rangefinders and lenses.

    John hikes with the labs about 8:30 on a normal day, but stays around and is a gracious host a lot in the morning during these events. Others of us have been known to go shooting earlier, but access to one favorite shooting area is cut off before about 6:30 am. There are a couple of good spots to look for early morning fog on the water, and the area that opens up at 6:30 has good morning light on some interesting cliffs.

    Lee

    (is there an echo in here?)

    Lee, this is Lee (No echo here, here, here, here)

    Do you have a 15mm VC viewfinder? I have not picked up a viewfinder for the 12mm and rumor has it that the 12mm is the full view of the 15mm outside the bright lines. I have a 21mm finder and when I put that on the M8 and go full view it is very close in framing by ignoring the frame lines in the finder and looking at everything you see in there with the 12mm VC lens. So yes add a few ounces to the camera bag and bring the 15 and finder.

    Look forward to the early morning fog walks. Brings out a few chords of the old Rock song, Smoke on the Water, dum dum dum, dum da dum...... and nice erie spires rising from the water.

    that other Lee or DaLeeMan as some know me.

    Thanks for the kind words Lee L.

    Other known suspects for early ventures are Dorothy, Shawn (Sunday morning) and Colleen. All others have yet to declare themselves except Dale who said earlier (possibly an earlier thread) that 2 PM was a nice morning time for shooting. I am just grateful that there are doctors awake 24x7 when we need them.

    There are so many wonderful places to walk and photo in the park that you all just have to keep coming back again and again. The girls and I just got back in from a three mile stroll in the woods near the Kendall Ledges.

    Perhaps that is a good segue to say that if you are reading this, have not already said you are coming, and would like to come to this event as a film shooter, you are most welcome. Just contact me by PM with name, address, phone, an emergency contact person and phone, and when we might expect you. I will return with directions and our contact information.

    You may, or may not want to bring your chainsaw to the falls . Looks like there is a big tree that has fallen down the falls.

    Yep, have the 15mm finder and will bring it. It was automatically sold with the lens, as with nearly all the wide C/V lenses+finders in LTM. Have heard the same about the 15mm finder working full-field for the 12mm. The same finder without bright frame IIRC.

    What's an M8? Is it like half an M16? Or 2 M3's plus an M2?
