  •  One more seemingly obvious tip (0+ / 0-)

    applies in places where a fall can spoil your trip, say to the Grand Canyon.  

    Someone I know walked out on a rock fin to get that great photo and when looking through the camera, he forgot there was  drop behind him.  He backed up to frame the shot slightly better and he fell off the edge that he forgot was there.  It was a downer so to speak.

    Beautiful pictures everyone.  I'm not much good with a camera.  Me personally,  I take a sketch pad and colored pencils instead.  I enjoy a slower process, often with coffee or wine.

    My wife however is much more accomplished as an artist.  She will sometimes take a snapshot, and will use the photo to start a drawing.  I'll see if I can dig one up.

      from a couple summers ago at the lake.  It now hangs on a wall in my house.

      My wife does landscapes too.  I should also say that while I like to take my time creating something, I don't have the patience for what my wife can do.  She might spend several weeks on a single piece.

      Mine aren't worth showing, but I have fun making them.
