Taking a break from photography for a bit to recharge the batteries. These were taken with my now sold 1DS MIII. Keeping all my lens for awhile untill I decide to keep shooting Canon, switch to Sony/Nikon or just give it up altogether. I hate this time of year.

Any reason why you want to switch brands?
From my understanding Nikon is on their way out, sales are way down, they are doing updates that disables 3rd party batteries and sigma lenses to boost their own sales while alienating their current customer base, etc.
If I had to start over I think I would look into the Pentax K3, its a crop body with the iso performance of a full frame, and the specs of a much more expensive canon pro body.
I do love my Canon 6D though.
