Aspen on Cinder

Saturday, September 27, 2008

Location - Bonito Lava Flow

Camera - Nikon D80, 70mm

First post with the Nikon D80.
Decided to treat myself and upgrade from D70 to D80. Being phased out, there are some nice deals on-line for the D80. So far, I really like the larger LCD and view finder, it makes it much easier as I am getting older, :(

Some what smaller than the D70, it still feels really nice in my hands. Some of the buttons are in different position, but it should be easy to get use to it. I am keeping the D70, as it isn't worth the money I'll get out of selling it. But I will have to sell my Olympus E500 - Ebay bound.

Cotton Wood

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Not a whole lot of trees by Wupatki area except for a few junipers and small shrubs. But these cotton wood trees (a smaller one to the right), which usually grows near rivers/creeks, break the odds of surviving in this arid location.

Camera - Nikon D70, focal length 170mm.

State Capital building of Texas. The building's appearance is enhanced by the pink granite, looks really sharp.

Austin Bound.

Thursday, September 4, 2008

Austin, one of my favorite cities. I lived there back in 96 - for about 6 months. But I worked out of there for a year (I was commuting). It's cool, vibrant, full of energy, great restaurants, and also very busy. Last time I was here, was when Gore conceded the presidential election. When I lived here, I was mostly in the northern part of Austin, just south of Round Rock. This time, I am staying in the southern part of Austin, near the airport, so I am not familiar with this area at all, thank goodness for GPS.

Waiting game begins - PHX, terminal D. Luckily, no delays.

Ceiling of Chuy's - great timing, it's time for the green chili celebration. Great, thin, crispy chips, and nice spicy salsa (no wimpy stuff here), and a Shiner Bock accomanied my dinner, oh yeah!

Capital at night. Didn't finish my work on schedule. I was hoping to get out early enough to see the bats, but ran into some technical difficulties..... Oh well. Maybe anothe time. I did drive by the capital building. Always an impressive sight.
