ABout twice a year, if we can manage it, our family heads out to the Rockies/Purcell Mountains for skiing in the winter, and believe it or not, golf and other fun stuff in the summer. This year, our daughter is off in France earning a school credit, so the rest of us headed out to Invermere, BC for some cool, clean, mountain air. We started out in Banff National Park, and I stopped at the road side of Highway 1A to capture a wild rose: NIKON D200    ---    180mm    f/6.3    1/160s    ISO 100 There were a few other flowers, and I've almost convinced myself that I need a good macro lens:biggrin:, before we arrived at Morraine Lake. It was late in the day, and we still had about 2 hours of driving before we would arrive at our place, plus the airline had delayed the luggage that contained my tripod, so I captured this shot of the lake, hand held. NIKON D200    ---    12mm    f/8.0    1/400s    ISO 100 Still working on more, including a rainbow, a visit to Mt. Revelstoke and some interestingly awesome golf course views. More to come. Please enjoy.
