There is a little pond by our house that... Well, let me rephrase. There is a dry pond by our house (it has water in the summer months), that I had been dying to test out my new lens on the cattails. I knew they would look pretty in the afternoon lighting, but it has been so cold. Finally I ventured out and this is what I got. S is always such a good sport. He came home with muddy frozen shoes and a big smile.

Jeremy and I had been wanting to check out Rocky Mountain National Park here in Co. for a while now. We ventured out Friday on the 3hr drive (one way), but by the time we got there it was nearly dark and we didn't feel like paying 20 bucks for a 1/2 hr of scenery, so we picnicked at Lake Estes, an amazingly beautiful lake at the mouth of the national park. I was happy enough to play with my new christmas present, and the kids were thrilled... except S., he happened to be sick and asleep in the car. You know how things go, never perfect, but it was still a good time. (at least for most of us)

Ok Alex, so you asked me about photoshopping your pictures. I've posted some photos for you so you can see the difference. The first is the PS version, the second straight from the camera. I'll agree with you that a good photographer doesn't have to photoshop... but I think now days it is going to make you stand out if you do. And you know how I just can't seem to help myself. (remember staying up with me after taking Sara's?) After you play around on PS you'll see what I mean. If you get the CS3 or CS4(the new version) you can create actions to cut down the time. Hope this helps.
