Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

A couple of hours ago I captured this off of a winding country road with a spectacular view of Siena on one side and on the other rolling hills dotted with blooming orchards and olive groves. This is such a wonderful time of the year to be here. I'm so...thankful to get to experience this. Wish my JPG friends could join me.

    Thanks everyone for your comments, Each mean a lot to me. Andrea, thank you for mentioning the earthquake. We actually only live about 120 miles from where the earthquake hit, but, thankfully, we're fine. My heart and prayers go out to all who aren't.
