some that i have taken over the years (lots of which were taken on rides )

This is probably my absolute favorite out of everything i have ever taken, lighting came out so sweet, this was up at the local ski resort (mt high... more pics below)


Gods seat... off yerba buena in the malibu hills.. taken on a ride (5 or 6 photo stitch)


one of the decker canyon mths (the peak just to the right in the center is gods seat)


One of my favorite pics taken on a ride... latigo canyon... 85*F at the top... probably 55 at the bottom... damn ocean fog.


A day up at mt high... you can see both east n west resorts... and infact you can see the run / peak (center peak) where me and my buddy rode to the top of this summer DETAILED HERE


This one is cool, its taken from the right peak in the pic above... you can sea the ocean and islands... yet are in snow and skiing... <3 so cal


Another from a similar spot as the one above, you can see catalina island


A view pretty much out my back yard last season after a big dump of snow... yes we get snow here in so cal... it effs all sorts of things up.... im only 40min north along the coast from LA


Another one on some random moto ride... this is of gibraltar resivoir.


This one of lake casitas just north of me... did i mention there is TONS of riding to do around so cal / ventura area?




Thats about all of the good stuff... as you can see i like pano's i think they capture the essence of a landscape much better than just a standard picture.

Thanks! I couldn't believe it when I saw it... the first morning of a vacation in Hawaii. Woke up, walked out on the balcony, and that is what was waiting for me.

I really like your pano of the bike and cotton field... reminds me of Eastern NC.

My dad was into photog in the 50's and 60's. He could take pics like nobody's business. We had wonderful shots in the family album(it burned in the fire)


For the life of me, I cannot take a decent pic. Call me jealous.

They are great shots......

Yes, the first set from WA are all with the D7000 / 18-200mm Nikkor. Awesome camera. The middle set are all from a junk vivitar film 35mm from 1991. Well, not junk but nothing special. They are various shots I took while living in Europe when on Active Duty. Had to retouch them to make them decent. It was before I was bit by the photography bug.

The macros are a mix of my old D50 and the D7000. They were all shot with the MicroNikkor 60mm.

I upgraded to the D7000 just this summer. The D50 I bought in 2005 so it was time. you might say the camera became the limiting factor. The two biggest improvements are 6400 ISO plus 16MP. Gets me better low light and better cropping ability. I like to shoot birds a lot and need the MP for cropping. Even my 150-500mm doesn't get me close enough all the time.

I'd like to see some of the Bird Pictures! Awesome photos from every one. It really inspires me to get a better camera and take a class. I've been looking at the D7000, EoS, the Nex3 or any of Sony's Alpha series.

Its kind of sad that to get better quality images we now have to get newer cameras. Remember when a good camera was a lifetime investment? I still carry a Leica M3 that was my fathers... it still takes fantastic photos. I do shoot digital, but I enjoy film more.

Flycatcher... the insect macros are really good... makes me want to start playing with macro again.

I started my DSLR world last year with the D5000.
Coming from years and years of P&S cameras, it's been a real eye opener.

It's incredible how I can use the consumer-grade 55-200 in my kids gym or theatre, crank the ISO up and get a useable photo; on any P&S I would have had a black exposure...

D7000 is a monster. Any of the 5000 series will probably take just as good a photo. To be honest, the D50 was superb, just lacked low light, and at 6MP I couldn't crop as much as I sometimes needed. Will get some bird shots up after work.

Thanks, I started macro with my D50 18-55mm kit lens and a screw on +10 magnifier. At $40 it's a cheap way to get into macro shooting to see if you like it. I then bought a used 60mm micronikkor off ebay. Still going....

I'm not taking "better pictures" with my D7000. It has more capability. Flash ruins photos. Bottom line. I would never have gotten ANY of the North Cascades shots with the D50. It maxed at iso1600 and only shot good photos at 800. But at 800 or below, I'd run it against anything new.

Film is film, there is no MP differences. Your low light capability is determined by your film speed. With digital you don't have those options so a new body is the only alternative. Unfortunate.

I hear what you are saying though, that's why I kept the D50 for 7 years. Wouldn't it be nice if they could just throw a new sensor in there?

D5000 is a great camera. With anything that moves, SLR is a must. P&S you cannot get the shot. I have taken what I think are some very good pictures of things that don't move with a P&S. Dark shooting? P&S is worthless without a flash.
