Hi Trader.

It wouldn't let me see your photos. Maybe the link is wrong, Yahoo can be strange some time.

Hey, but isn't "Duck on the Water" an old deep purple song?

Nice pics, Trader ! Where did you shoot these pictures ? It's nice to hear someone else is pleased with their camera.

I've attached another swan photo...a flock of elusive wild trumpeter swans have been wintering in the corn fields around us. I can never get near to them and this is the best so far, but at full zoom and too far away.

White swans are adults....brownish ones are this year's babies.

I agree, nice pics!

I've had my 8800 for about a month and it so far is exceeding my expectations.

I am glad to be able to take pictures after dark now. My film camera is an old Canon A1 that has enough features that there was really no place you couldn't shoot with it. My first digital, a Fuji 2800 is a most excellnt point and shoot except for the fact you really couldn't take it very far out of auto. Night shotas are out of the question.

The lighting on this footbridge is from high pressure sodium lighting but a WB setting of incandescent cured the yellow cast. I am standing in knee deep snow to get the moon in the right positionand using a tripod.
