I finally got around to looking at your web site and blog entries after we met in The Grand Canyon during September. I enjoyed our conversations there and it looks like you continue to travel around seeing and shooting amazing scenery. If you are ever 'Down under" may sure you look me up. I always have a spare room available for travellers :-)
As an outcome of our meetings, I'm looking at the 8mm lens on Amazon and giving some though to purchasing one for a bit of fun. I wonder if you have any images shot with that lens to share?
I'm working to finish the post-processing of my own images from the week I spent in the Utah/Arizona/Utah area and I continue to be absolutely amazed at the natural beauty that was on show there. Spectacular is not quite descriptive enough for that part of the world.
