5/365 Primes 77mm Thin Ice

You are on thin ice! I'm grateful for the warning, I never would have known.  This pond is in my neighborhood. And We have seen some cold days. But yesterday was a balmy 40 degrees.

I decided to go outside with the 77 Limited and see how if acted a f/5.6.

Camera: Pentax K1 ( Full frame camera)

Lens: Pentax SMCP-FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited Silver

ISO 100, F/5.6 1/60 Hand Held

I think the background has a pleasant out of focus character without loosing the ability to know what you are looking at. I like the shimmery quality of the bokeh.

The shutter speed is pretty slow for a hand held shot. Especially considering the reduced strength and control of my right side. Even so, the in camera shake reduction did a fantastic job.  Below is a detail crop in on part of the sign.

I would love your feedback for ideas on how I could better my posts for this 365 project.  Have you shot with this lens or camera? What has your experience been?
