Lake Lure

North Carolina

Pics from a wandering trip Sandy and I took last Sunday that wound us up in Lake Lure. Originally we were just sort of pointing towards Asheville, then see what came of it. Well the day got late and we decided to make Lake Lure our terminus. Since they added the Flower Bridge in 2013, we love stopping there. Highly recommended!

This is a real mixed set of pics. First off there's pics from new, state of the art lenses. Then the last half are pics with vintage lenses. Note, a couple of the pics are from our trip to and from Lake Lure and not taken right at the lake.

This first section is all taken with new lenses. I shot the first lake shot and all the flowers with the Sony/Zeiss FE 2.8/90 Macro G OSS on my A7RII and Sandy shot the beautiful wrap around shots with the Sony E 3.5-5.6/PZ 16-50mm OSS on her A6300.

This first landscape bridge shot and all of the flower shots below were made with the Meyer-Optik Görlitz Trioplan 2.8/100mm. Rockin the macro 'old school'!

This lens is over 60 years old.

Quite a different look from the new lenses!

... and a pickup truck!

These last three shots were all made with the Yashica ML 50mm 1.9.
