Ron is right I am a avid hunter. Although I didn't get a chance to shoot a big buck today I made sure to take my camera and do a little different type of shooting with my new D80, that the best dad in the whole world gave my for my birtrhday! After I got done hunting today I took sometime to do some walking around. I really liked this shot with all the leaves changing against the blue sky. It has been pretty windy here so there aren't many leaves left on the trees. I hope to learn all the new tricks and features to the new camera and I have already started a wish list for accesories for it.
I think I need to open a camera shop!
Aaron's birthday is this month so we gave him a Nikon D80 with a battery grip and a couple of lenses so he could learn to shoot like the big boys. My wife decided at about the same time that she would like to start getting a little more serious about photography and wanted something other than a point and shoot so I invested in another Nikon D80 with an 18-55 VR lens and a bag for her. Now she keeps wanting to use my lenses so I am going to need to get her some of her own!
Cheryl is still figuring out the D80 but she wants to start posting some of her photos on the blog once she really starts taking some so here in the next couple of weeks you will be seeing some photos from her and hopefully from the son if he ever comes home from deer hunting. LOL

If the firemen all looked like this I would sign up right away!
This is one of the fire trucks in a small town near where I live. For some reason I don't think a big city could have this on their trucks, it's not too politically incorrect. What's the world coming too? LOL

I was walking down the beach several months ago looking for birds when I came across these two characters. After chatting with them for a few minutes I asked if I could take their picture. Because I still had the Sigma 120-400 on I stood back about 25 feet and took a quick burst. This one turned out the best though in hind sight I could have used a little smaller aperture setting.
These photos from our 5th or 6th day of the trip, but this time we slept in the car, and start hiking around 5:00 A.M. to the location. On the bottom photo, after 45 min. climbing up to this spot, I was gagging for air while taking this photo. This is only shot that I took at this spot, I just need to remember to take my Advair in the morning, and not to smoke during climbing the mountain.
