Still going through withdrawal

{whine}. My camera's still not ready. I'll be in Toronto on Friday, so I hope I can pick it up from Nikon  then. In the meantime, the only camera I have is my iPhone.

I took a pano with it: how cool is that? I'm not posting it here because I was just playing, but it works well. Just so I don't leave you without pictures (I wouldn't do that!), here are a couple:


I woke up the other morning to a sugar-frosted world. Not ice, but snow, that stuck to all the branches. About half an hour later, it was gone! Beautiful, though. This is the view from my driveway towards my dock. 


From the same spot, I took a shot of the Red Umbrella Inn. I used the oil paint filter in Photoshop CS6 and I LOVE what it did to the trees at right. iPhone. Who would have thunk it?

... until I met a man who had no feet...
You know the old saw about feeling sorry for yourself because you don't have any shoes... OK, so I had a few dust spots on my D600. That doesn't compare to the pain Dr. Ron felt when a bull elk TRASHED his D3S and 600mm f/4 lens in Yellowstone. I'm trying to get his permission to reproduce the story here. I get mine back from Nikon in a day or so. I think he has to wait a bit longer.

Web Presence revision
I'm working on revising my web presence. I've taken ALL my Smugmug galleries down, they were really silly. I intend to have one gallery for limited edition exhibition quality prints for sale, a gallery for wallpaper images, and a portfolio, and that's it. So far I created the print gallery, and put one image in it, more to come!

Next comes the www.photography.to site, which needs revamping and the 2013 teaching schedule, then my main site, then... it never ends!
