Harriet, Something way in the back of my mind says yeah, I remember seeing this before but, it was many many long years ago... thanks for the memories.

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...

I think both your waterfall shots looked great Harriet and the chipmunk is about as sharp as possible. Those basalt columns are something, almost look like vertical cords of wood.

Harriet - some awesome shots of amazing places - thanks so much for the tour. Your skills with HDR are impressive! The chipmunk shot is so sharp and full of personality, the falls are lovely, but I especially enjoyed seeing the basalt formations - like (the very best of) textbook illustrations of geology.

Nice ones, Harriet. I really like the chipmunk and the waterfalls. I haven't been in that area in over 30 years when we used to go to Mammoth to ski. Well, if you could call mine skiing. I mostly watched.

Scott - Guess I need to finish reading the manual on the K20. I didn't realize I could do that.

Thanks GW, Tim, mole, and Patty. I'm not much of a skier either, I can manage OK on nordic skis (without a camera) and have fun, but mostly snowshoe as it takes no extra skills.

The DA*300 is just an awesome lens and works very well with the K-7. I took some surfing pictures a week after I got the lens and they were the best I've ever managed (even if it would have been generous to call the waves "pint-sized" that day). I can hand-hold it but have to really work at it. The results are well worth it.
