    Wow. You captured a very dramatic moment.

    And you were disparaging your skills in another post... without reason, I might say.

    Great action shot Gale!

    The others have said all the good stuff I'd like to say.

  11. I can't add anything of note to what the others have already said.

    But the one word that keeps coming to mind is: WOW!

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for the kind words.

    The 80-400 VR really works good and kept me in photography. Was about to hang it up. Thanks to Harry I hung in there. Pondered that lens and finally did it.

    After such a great weekend with the Greatest bunch of folks I think I have ever met, picked up my car from the shop for a good going over to discover I have probably 2 grand of repairs facing me. List to long to mention.

    You definitely have a classic here. I can't believe that you would even think about quitting.... :? All you needed was a few friends to shoot with, and you sure were around some good ones this weekend!!

    You are getting better and better with that new lens too. Nothing like some good glass to bring out one's talents.... 8) :lol: :p
