We enjoyed the Green Mountain nature walk again this year....it was vastly different from last year, when we were sweltering in the heat! This year we nearly had the place to ourselves! Chris's dog Amber was the hit of the day....she's a sweetie, and I'm glad Chris brought her out. Laura Beth took a real liking to Amber and was on the other end of the leash much of the afternoon :smile:. Joe and Laura Beth were thinking ahead and brought some duck food...that allowed us some nice closeups! The 4 Musketeers....Melissa, Ryan, Ben and Laura Beth It was very tranquil and quiet on the trail. I saw Herb shooting some scenes similar to this, so I hope he'll post some of his! Here's my attempt at capturing the mood. Paul took this one. I've finally convinced him of the necessity of good glass (or rather, Nikon did, lol!) All winter he's been groaning about the amount of money I've spent on lenses. On this trip, completely on his own and without any prompting from me, he told me that he finally gets it....the glass makes a world of difference. Now he'd even like me to get a new camera body so he can have my D70! I see a third job in my future :biggrin:.
