  • I did it. As soon as I received the RX10m3, I sold my A65 and three A-mount lenses on eBay and then sold my Nex-7 and three E-mount lenses. Even sold my RX10m1. Now I'm down to the RX10m3 and ...
  • You do some really good work, Dan Carter! Excellent camera work, fantastic subject matter and your music is to kill for! Ed
  • Kinda like that myself. Too much sand through my hourglass, I suppose... Ed
  • I now live within about 45 minutes of where it was and wish I'd gotten chance to visit their establishment while it was still going. I've only been in the Phoenix area for about three years now ...
  • And mine is the same problem. Haven't had it long enough to do much and the Phoenix summer heat has kept me penned in too long. But that won't last forever. This should be my last summer in this ...
  • Gorgeous photos, fotophool! And I am familiar with the pine bark beetle. Seems when drought sets in, the pine bark beetles flourishes. Southern California has a real drought problem with them and ...
  • At some point this thread devolved into a west vs east debate and I guess that started with my post stating that I don't find the opportunities as prevalent in the east as in the west for stunning ...

    Thank you very much for the compliment, Elliott. Yes, I understand what you're saying but it should probably be taken in the context of not only the accompanying discourse, but also the experience ...
  • Hi Tom, Here are couple of shots of eastern birds I thought you might find pleasing since they are from the east coast. They were shot on Tybee Island off the coast of Georgia back in the 70s. Thes ...
  • Hi fotophool, Those must be on the Wind River side of the Wind River Range... my favorite range in Wyoming, BTW...  most people are familiar with the Tetons, but the Winds are relatively unknown. ...
  • Tom, wildlife was mentioned in at least five different posts in the first several pages of this thread. It has been covered thoroughly. We all do it. The first mention of landscape came up with ...

    Good one, Tom! Ed

    You...

    Fair enough.

    Vive la différence! And as I stated previously, the difference is why I live in the west. It's why Ansel Adams lived here. Ansel Adams: The drama and beauty of the American West - http://www.cnn.co ...

    I use tele exactly the same as anyone else, making distant mages appear closer and compressed and cropped. Atmosphere can very well degrade distant scenes, but more so in the east than the west. ...

    You actually just demonstrated it yourself with the pictures you posted. They are exactly the pretty and tranquil settings I mentioned in my first post. Nice waterfall shots, BTW, but I didn't see ...

    It's not so much that it's "best" viewed from the distance but I'm not sure how else one would view it from where one happens to be located... except maybe with a long telephoto. I repeat that the ...

    Hi Tom, This was not to suggest that opportunities do not present themselves in the east. The first half of my life was spent there, from Florida to the coasts of Maine and Canada, the green ...
