A year or so ago I bought a digital camera. Changed my whole way of thinking about taking pictures. This is too easy, if you don't like what you see delete it and take some more. All the pictures are image editor ready. No developing (why I didn't own a camera) and no scanning to share the pictures. You can print them (if you have a very good printer) or have them professionally printed (just like you would have film developed). I have yet to print any of the photos I've taken so there is no need to upgrade my printer.

The camera is a Nikon Coolpix 990, 3.34 mega pixels and 3X Zoom. When set to "fine" the image will be 2,048 X 1,536 pixels at about 1MB. With a 128MB compact flash memory card I can take 90+ pictures at high resolution (fine). On long trips I'll take another 96MB and have yet run out of space. I'll bring a laptop on occasion for extended trips to download GPS data and it could be used to offload the pictures if space were low.

Below are links to pictures I've taken over the last year or so. Some local some not, mostly natural scenes with some macro shots of wildflowers that I run across on my rides. This section is likely to change often as I'm not sure how it should be laid out. I had up to eight pictures on a page but that was way too much for people with slow access speeds. I'm not particularly a fan of thumbnails so for now there will be a description of the shot with a link to the actual photo. It will open in it's own window which you will have to shut, unless of course you like to have a lot of windows open. ;-)

If there is a picture you would like to use commercially please contact me here and we can work something out. Even if you want to use one on your personal website please ask to use it. I'm not trying to make a living at this and after you see the photos you'll say "Good thing!"
