I spent the day roaming Lake Winnepesauke in New Hampshire today. I thought this scene was kinda cool. I wouldn't have minded if the "station" were smaller in the picture, but that wasn't happening. What do you think?

Sorry about the big size. I compressed it to a decent size but thought it looked like poo, so I said the heck with it and gave fair warning.

You can take my 100-400 L away when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

And you said you didn't like landscapes. That is a great image. I like the way that Texaco sign jumps right out at you.

Great job. Looks like your weather was condusive to shooting this weekend.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Lovely colors and detail in that photo. I like the composition, yes maybe the house could be smaller, but it's great just the same.

That's a lovely picture.

I'm more impressed with the fact that you can spell Winnepesauke


I can't.


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

No, I said that I can't *do* landscapes. Give me something interesting and I can take a shot, but there's no promise that I'll still manage to capture the interest.

My real problem is *seeing* interesting things. A real landscape photographer would probably fill 3 gig cards while I was busy scratching my head looking for interesting stuff. But I'll keep trying.


Thanks folks! There's hope for me yet....
