Sony/Zeiss 24mm F2.0 A mount with an A to FE adapter on a Sony A7R3. I would love native FE mount lenses but the body cost enough as it was, so I am just using my old A mount lenses on the FE body.
Sweet. Definitely not in my budget. the only Zeiss lenses I have are on my binoculars. I guess I'll stick to my Sigma.

It's not a real Zeiss lens, it pretty much just has the sticker on the side, it's made by Sony to Zeiss specs. So it wasn't baller Zeiss price haha, it was cheaper than the Canon 24mm.

The sigma Art lenses are amazing, some of them match or come very close to Sony GM or Canon L for much cheaper.

Great stuff! I just got my a7r3 last year that was my first "advanced" camera in probably more than a decade and love learning to use it.

This is a photo of Walga Rock which is located in the mid west region of Western Australia.

It is a significant site to the local Indigenous People and under the over hang (which you can just see) is an ancient art gallery and the paintings are thought to be over 10 000 years old.

Amongst those paintings is one of a sailing ship (see below) and this painting is thought to be at least 500 years old which predates European settlement by about 300 years - it is not known who drew it, whether it was an Indigenous person or a sailor from a shipwreck, noting that Walga Rock is 500 km in land from the Indian Ocean.

It kinda looks like those seen in the Arabian Sea, (DOWS) or of Chinese origin (JUNKS). There is a lot of history lost in the world, and the knowledge we have today is directly attributed to those cultures who valued bureaucratic records...Roman/Greek, Arab, Chinese, etc. It's to bad the Catholic Church was so determined to stamp out Central and South American culture and religion, as the surviving Religious texts are only a small percentage of what was lost or destroyed. To the victors, go the spoils, and who write History, is so true in this world.

That rock drawing is amazing, as you pointed out. 500 Miles inland, so you know trade and knowledge flowed across the continent. Here in the USA, along the Southern border area, there are reminders of how far North influences were. There were discovered 1 or 2 ? 'ball courts' that were directly copied from the Aztecs of Central Mexico. Also Sea shells from the Pacific Shore, 300 miles inland near the cliff dwelling people. As was turquoise stones in the New Mexico/Arizona area found on our west coast, showing how trade routes were open on this continent.

New England Lake Camping

View from camp one morning...

This was a great spot for a canoe camp in that with all the cattails, the folks with larger fishing boats couldn't pull up to shore as they can in other spots, so it is often available when others are not. I could slip my Nomad canoe in right there, drift out through the cattails, and find my way back after dark by lantern light on the galley counter of my trailer.

This is another lake camp, though I'd do the same thing; set a lantern on my galley counter before I left if I thought I might be out paddling after sunset. It's the tiny bright spot on the counter, and after dark it is like a mini roaddude lighthouse, guiding me back to the right opening along the shore.

We have hundreds of ship wrecks off of the coast of Western Australia that we know but there may be many more that we don't.

Most of the known ones are Portuguese, Dutch and English but there must be many from Arabia and the sub continent that we don't know of.

There is some sort of writing under the drawing of the ship and to me it looks similar to Arabic or Indian, but who knows.

Our history is fascinating and so little is known.
