  4. Great series Harry. You sure captured the colors in your images. Love the landscape shot as well.

  5. Nice teaser, Harry! That sunset shot is a beauty! Did you see the sunset tonight? All I had was my cell phone camera. Makes for a nice wallpaper on it though! ;) 
     
  6. Harry...I have enjoyed these very much and I just love the last one. The sunset is gorgeous. That is on my list of things to shoot when I get down there in Feb.

    BTW...how did the Eagle shot turn out for Chris? Did he get it?

  8. Chris...which lens did you use for the Eagle pictures and did you use a TC to go along with that lens?

    The Eagle shots you took are really good. I don't think that I could do any better. I never even tried to shoot birds before so it will be quite a trip for me in Feb. I had no idea how far you were away from the Eagle until Kevin showed the pic of you and the distance you were from that Eagle.

    Thanks,

    Thanks. You should be able to get some nice sunet shots down here. We get some marvelous colors in the sky at the end of the day.

    Harry, if you keep this up we'll have the entire La Quinta booked up with all the additional people signing on.

    Love the Glossy shot -- you really got the textures and tones to show well in that one.

    Thanks. i was happy with the shot. I was lucky i had my friend Dixie with me. Dixie excels at landscapes and it was his suggestion to shoot it in "portrait" mode.
