Default Up a Winding River: D60

I was attracted to riverbanks like this for a few years, because of the lush grass that grows right down to water level. The D60 gave me reason to capture this shot, with a 16-35mm lens at a small aperture.

Nice shot again Walther, and you remembered the flowers in the foreground. I often forgets it myself - but at small amount of flower realley can make a good shot great I think.

Walter, you scoundrel! You're putting all of the rest of us to shame with your D60 images. I really like this river scene, but then I really liked the lighthouse shot that you got when then light was just right, but then I especially liked the Maine farm image.... just keep the great images coming, Walter. Really, really nice.

Default Nice to hear from you, Ward.

Thanks for the kind words. I spent 2 weeks in Maine and shot 2000 pix, mostly with a 100-400mm 3 pound lens hanging down from the 3 pound camera.

But the D60 & assorted junque (it's too expensive to call it "junk") is really the culmination of a dream for this type of equipment that I had since I was in my teens back in the late '50's.

My goal now is to put together some kind of portfolio to make scenic calendars, or postcards, to sell, maybe in Maine.

I'm not sure how to go about it, but I think I am just about ready.

I gotta make this stuff at least pay for itself.

Pretty scene. I dare to think how many chiggers are hiding in that grass and weeds.

I think that to market your wares you need to be a really good salesperson. Oh, that sounds insulting LOL but not what I meant. What I mean is a really good artist often gets nowhere unless they are also very good at pushing their own product or hiring someone who is

Hi, Jimmie,

Thanks for the acknowledgment. How are ya doing?

By the way, I checked out your website. It's getting to be very impressive, and clearly a labor of love. Nice job. It looks better each time I see it!

Regard,
