  • Submitted a challenge entry First Grandchild, Love at first sight!
    My wife and I had made the trip to see our first grandchild.  I had just put my camera gear away and as I walked back into the living room I saw this.  I ran back, grabbed my A55 with Sony G 70-300mm lens and shot wide open. Only got a few shots before the magical moment was over.

    Stumbled upon this falls by accident.  Salt Creek Falls was a true pleasure to find and photography in an out of the way spot in Oregon.

  • Submitted a challenge entry AboveMultnomah
    Shot during long hike above Multnomah Falls in Oregon in October, 2005. Can't really recall which part of the trail this was taken on, but would love to make it back there someday.

  • Submitted a challenge entry SandyCreekCoveredBridge
    Late fall afternoon shot of Sandy Creek Covered Bridge in Hillsboro, Missouri.  I backed off a bit and didn't go for the usual close up shot of the bridge.  I recall actually riding across the bridge in my Dad's car when I was a child.  It's a state park now.  Only foot traffic.

  • Submitted a challenge entry MtStHelens
    Shot up at the end of the road as far as we could go that day for a couple of hours.  We packed up and left. As we were driving down the road I went around a curve and saw the lenticular cloud in the rear view mirror.  Turned around quickly and got a few shots, the cloud was gone in about 10 minutes.

  • I'd like to upgrade again, but it's not in the cards right now.  I guess I really got spoiled to the earlier Sony's with IS built in, 850, A77, A55, etc.  I've also used shutter preferred once in ...
  • I'm going to say it's both!  As I've gotten older and with it arthritis and other issues have crept in that caused me to move to lighter and smaller cameras.  I now shoot with the A6000, NEX-6, ...

  • I had the 850, but didn't upgrade to the A99, but moved to the A7 series due to severe hand issues and the advantage of the lower weight of the A7 series.  But I also noticed the flat looking RAW ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Too much bull!
    Bulls bred for use in rodeos, very aggressive and dangerous.  These two were coming at each other pretty hard and there is motion blur, by design.
