Sorry to hear that, Uncle Flash. But I appreciate your doing that so that Nifty can move on to someone else.

Folks, it's going to be a New Year in a few days.
Let's all make a resolution to get at least one traveling Nifty image posted every day!
Can we do that? Between five lenses, can we get at least one a day?
C'mon, we can do it!

Thanks, and I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and all have a Happy New Year!

Speaking of which, can we get all Nifty's to post up a New Years Eve shot? :cool:

I have to admit, the travelling nifties is a great idea but the bloody things move too slow for my ADD. I placed myself and Kx315 on the list together as we work in the same place although Kx315 will still be interested as he is way more serious about photography than I. He's been getting some good results lately too.

I ended up buying a nifty for my daughter just so I could borrow it and I'm very impressed with the lens. I have no idea why these aren't supplied with every Canon DSLR as a body cap? They don't cost much more. Bang for bucks, they must be the best lens Canon sell. Our nifty is off to Melbourne for a week in early January and I'm hoping my daughter will give it a good work-out.

Good luck to everyone here and keep moving them along.

Lastly, as they say on most public forums, "This thread is useless without pics." :)

After a time left sealed in the box to slowly warm up, Nifty was on my camera and we were out the door for a quick introduction to his new surroundings. It was a
short excursion as the light is already dull and fading here at 3:00 pm but he did ok with high ISO's and the -18C temps. Hopefully he'll get used to being jailed in
a zip-lock bag after every excursion for the next while. :)

Welcome to Sioux Lookout! That's what the sign usually says too, but this year the Town celebrated it's 100th Birthday so it reads a little different for
another week or so. This is the entrance to the Town proper and our main street. Canadian National Railway/VIA Rail tracks run above the road, forming the
overpass we know locally as the "Subway" .

A little info: Sioux Lookout is located in NW Ontario Canada, halfway between Thunder Bay (Ontario) and Winnipeg (Manitoba), north of the Transcanada Highway.
It's about a 4.5 hour drive to either city from here. Population is approximately 5000. We're a small town - meaning no street lights!

This is the view just behind me as you approach the Subway in the previous image. You're going to see alot of this; we're surrounded by lakes, all of which are
frozen and snow-covered at this time of the year. Across the lake is a local landmark, Sioux "Mountain" and those train tracks I mentioned curve west along its base,
heading west to Winnipeg and beyond.

By this time Nifty was having difficulty finding focus, having too little light and even less contrast; so that was that for today! A taste of what you are in for with
Nifty's visit here.

Regards
Pat (aka Patricia)
