    Those are stunning shots, Dave. Absolutely beautiful. What kind of camera do you use? I only ask because I am looking to get something that takes great pictures, but is user friendly and won't cost a fortune.

    I use a Pentax ist D. It is only a 6 mega pixel SLR camera, but it has a nice lens. I don't really know what it cost because it was given to me by my daughter. I have only been using it since spring. I think the most important thing with any camera is to learn the settings on them. It took a long time, but I am starting to figure them out. Before I got this one, I was using a Kodak 14 mega pixel point and shoot camera. It was relatively inexpensive, and took very nice pictures. I hope to upgrade sometime soon (providing I can afford it) to something that will allow a little better images when enlarging them. There is nothing I would rather be doing than taking pictures.

    Oh, and Thanks.

    Cindy,
    I started my image making with a Canon 40D and an image-stabilized wide angle lens, a 16-105mm I think. Canon is irritating because it's their lenses that are stabilized and they cost quite a bit. I changed to a Sony Alpha 550, mainly so I could share lenses with my husband who has a Sony Alpha 700. The Sony Alpha series is stabilized within the camera itself, so you can use less expensive lenses and still have the image-stabilization that you want.

    There are several different camera makes that are in-camera stabilized and I would go with one of them. Otherwise, a good DSLR with the best glass you can afford.

    I particulary like the photgraph Sun sets on Comerica Park

    Despite the fact that the sun is setting it still overpowers the stadium light. To me it shows the power of nature.

    Do you have a website? If not have you thought of wordpress (free). I am helping a friend put some pictures on her site tomorrow.

    I suggested the site to her and was learning how to set up when she phoned and said she had set it up herself. Without being rude, it must be straightforward if she could do it.

    Wonderful pictures, and quite a variety! Wonderful fall colors, great treat to look at for us who don't have much of a season.

    I really liked the Loon Lake fog... makes me want to paint it!

    Wow. . .wow. . . I'm speechless. Beautiful work

    Thanks -- I may look into that since the site I have been building is taking a lot of work.
