Thumbs up Wow! Great pix as usual! Thanks for sharing.

Swan Valley is gorgeous! What a great job on all the pix and the commentary. Sherry--I liked the apron curtains in the MT cottage too! What a cute idea.

I love it! I see you spent some time in Yakima - I actually have a house there! Unfortunately we can't sell it (and in fact it's value has barely increased in the nine years since we left) because the town is in such financial trouble. I thought it was funny that you thought it was thriving!

I am jealous of all the exploring you are doing! You're living the dream!

Camera info please

Danny and Sherry,

Thank you for sharing your fabulous photos and web site with us. I'm interested in knowing more about the photo equipment you use both hardware and software. Needless to say, the panoramas are spectacular and artistic. You have an excellent eye!!!

Actually, I'm using a 5 year old Nikon Coolpix 880 point & shoot ... 3 megapixels. Post processing is done in Photoshop CS2. For the panoramas, I'm stitching with Panorama Factory. A good tripod really helps with the pans ... I'm using a Bogen 3021BPRO with a 3047 head.

I've been lusting after the new Nikon D200 and some nice Nikkor lenses ... perhaps I'll get one later this year after the tight supply loosens up ... and, of course, when Sherry "green-lights" the purchase.

So let's hear it folks, we need to convince Sherry ... Porky needs a new camera!

Wow. All that out of an 880!! I'm surprised how well the Panorama Factory software handles the stitching of the sky. I've used Photoshop CS2's panoramic function and am quite disappointed in the stitching. There are noticeable breaks visible that require far more tweaking than I have patience for.

I too drool over the D200. I'm certain that will be my next camera. I have a D70 that's about 20 months old now. Just before I retired I convinced my wife that I needed to add some toys while we still had income, so I bought a few lenses. The 70-200mm VR, the 12-24mm, and a quick and very inexpensive f1.8 50mm were added to the 18-70mm lens that came with the D70 and my trusty circa 1975 35mm (perspective control) lens. Now I'm trying to decide what extender to add, either the 1.4x or the 1.7x. I think I can suffer the f-stop loss of the 1.7 because the VR lens is a quick f2.8 and the vibration reduction is amazing. On my web site, for example, there is a photo of three mallard ducks swimming by taken a full 200mm. The website picture is sharp but the full-size one is amazingly chrisp and clear. I recommend that one and also the 12-24, which should suit the landscape photography that you do.

Oh, I should also add that graduated neutral density filters do a nice job with landscapes where the contrasts between land and sky are great. I recommend those too, if you don't have any.

Thanks for sharing.
