    Not much time during week for shooting these days being back in the Arrrggghhh work force.
    Had to sneak in a few minutes though to test my new tripod. I really enjoy a stable platform and I think I'm gonna like being able to work this way. Was getting kinda tired of always having to hold my Monopod in one hand or the other.

    I just really like this one kinda hope he was saying a New Years Pray and thanking the Lord for the precious gift in his arms. Oh and there's a bird there so no one complains about cross posting :biggrin: :tongue: :biggrin:
