A little while ago I posted a shot of a fly fisherman in mid-cast. This is the same spot-my wife and I hiked down to the river to get this shot-being early January this recreation area was deserted. Temp was in the mid 60's-the rest of the country would pay big bucks for this weather!

I love the scene (especially living in vertically-undifferentiated Florida), the colors, and the lens. I recently bought a used DA 16-45 and am appreciating its performance.

Have to be honest-my wife took this shot. I have a hip replacement and don't do well on uneven surfaces-like AZ river rock. I handed her the camera while I navigated the river bed-just some minor PP and cropping-but she gets the credit. She has been hanging around me for too long-42 yrs-so she knows what to look for.

She certainly did very well, she has a good eye. Love these Pentax cameras - you can have complete control or let the camera do most of the work. I always loved the photos Dan would take, though he knew little more than how to turn on the camera and adjust the zoom. It looks like your wife knows more than Dan did.

Looks like you two are a great team - including photographically!

I love it. There's a place on the coast in Maine where people stop and build cairns. So cool leaving your mark. You and your wife did a good job here.
