I arrived home yesterday evening – yeah! I think my bone marrow may be thawed out in a few days.
The difference that one day of sunshine makes is enormous and amazing. The snow melts, the water soaks into the sand, tractors come out to make repairs, the work crews start burning the sagebrush, and the the world is much brighter and WARMER!
I received several gift cards for my favorite camera store here for Christmas so I ventured out to browse the goodies only to find that someone broke into their store and ripped off just about every dog gone item I was considering cashing the cards in on. What a bummer, somewhere there is thousands of dollars of stolen lens etc I hope the a holes get caught!
I visited my next favorite store and blew money I do not really have (read VISA) and satisfied my gimme want me mood with the purchase of the Nikkor 50mm f1.4D I have been drolling over. Next some of met at the nature center to shot some pics giving me the opportunity to try out the new lens. It is going to take a bit to get used to how fast it is compared to my other lens that I am used to and how the depth of field plays out.
