Camera data: Canon EOS 10D at 6MP, Canon EF 28-200 zoom at 200mm (320mm equivalent), ISO 100, no filters or special software effects used, just a tripod to aim the camera. Shutter speeds vary from 1/500 to 1/4000 of a second.

In some pictures... Ken, 10/29/04.

Lens Wish List -- I would like (soon) a longer, fixed focal length (prime) lens to get super clear shots. One lens I have in mind is the Canon EF 300mm/f4L. Resource: Canon site on
