    ...on the end of another day in paradise.

    Longboat Key, Sarasota, FL

    Let me know if these kinds of shots start getting old ;-)

      Sunset and sunrise shots never get old for me, love them. This is now exception, beautiful color, it almost looks to be raining off to the left area or it could just be beams of light.

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Thanks, Ron. It is raining off the the left. A huge thunderstorm had just blown across Bradenton and out into the Gulf. It obliterated the typical western sunset vista but I caught this looking North.

      Cheers!

      Nice shot, Robert.
      So this is your new base, huh? It's going to be a very horizontal - a whole new type of scenery for you.

      Yes it is. I'm enjoying the new scenery but I'm sure the landscapes will grow old and I will start seeking out new subject matter soon enough. Right now it's just so easy :-)

      It's all about the sky.
      Hey, check out www.flickr.com/photos/smelterx/
      About a quarter of his wonderfully Americana photostream has skies that occupy the top 2/3rds of the photos. Very appealing when used with the square crop.

      Add - if you haven't seen it yet - southwest Florida from the air.

      I'm really enjoying my PEN. It does just about everything my DSLR did yet is easier to carry, isn't as obtrusive when I point it at people, and allows for greater freedom of camera placement for varied framing options. With the Lumix 20mm lens it delivers very good image quality (the kit zoom isn't so great) at anything less than ISO1600. All of that being said, I do miss having a greater choice of high quality glass a DSLR offers and would love to try something with a usable extended ISO range (ISO6400+). I'm sure I will keep the PEN for travel, walking around, etc. whenever I buy my next DSLR. The good thing is I don't feel in a rush to do so as the PEN is serving me quite well.
