ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM!

The bad economy lowers prices on merchandise. I have been watching the numbers on a zoom lens and finally took the plunge.

Shooting the moon from my front porch.

Recent trip to the ocean. Bad weather. Good surfing photo ops.
Mom, Dad and kids. Trumpeter swan at Harriman State Park
More surfing.

I enjoyed all the shots. You look pretty tough, by the way. Holy crap! I could never manage that! But that moon. That is devine!

Woman in Window...no way would I get out in that cold water. Even with a wet suit. Just showing off how I could get a good photo without wetting my feet. Yes, it does have VR and auto focus. Merry Christmas, happy birthday, happy Mothers Day, etc. etc. to me.

Like the moon shot. Tonight, here in the Uk, Venus is going to be very close to the moon so I rather wish I had your zoom lens then I might try a shor.

Money well spent! On behalf of the world economy, I thank you. Can't wait to see what else you can zoom in on.

Your photos are fantastic! What kind of camera do you use? Not that I know much of anything about cameras.....
