Good "find", Bill. I love the different perspective of a much photographed scene.

We found a place. 3/4 acres. Pool. 2 story country house with landscaping. 4bd 2.5 bath. Now to sell the other one and hope it goes fast. Not really sure if I can leave the lake but the kids need more room to roam and this place puts them in a better high school district! So that might make me leave the lake. We'll see what the man upstairs has to say about it ;-)

thank you Doug. I of course took the normal tourist photos of it too, but when I saw this tree (it was the beginning of Feb) I realized that I could capture a scene rarely viewed, and only at certain parts of the year.
I didn't have a clue what I was doing back then. I had broken my Vivitar 20 years earlier on a trip to the heart of the Mexican Sierra's and shot using an instamatic 35mm for years. I borrowed my Dad's camera and 2 lens for this trip.
Every year after the release of the first Minolta Maxxum my Dad bought the next year's model - literally getting the 1st one in Houston.
The irony was that although he had been taking photos for 45+ yrs and developing them himself - I always shot better photos with my inexpensive camera (it used to p*ss him off a little) -

He worked hard and had the knowledge, while I knew nothing about composition, ISO (although I just LOVED the results of Kodachrome 64 and Ectachrome 400). shutter speed aperature etc and didn't have any interest in learning any of those "technical things". I would just envision a photo in my mind when I looked at something and I pointed the camera and shot. Now that I realize how valuable that gift is - I woudn't trade it to be 21 again!! ;-))

he has no idea what he's doing yet he's using that D300 like it belongs in his hands

Things like that can drive some of us nuts....I was at a party last weekend. There was a 7 year old kid with a little "Wal-Mart special" digital taking better than decent pictures of the guests. I asked him if someone had told him how to take pictures so they will look good and he said "No,,,thats just how they are supposed to look".
