Wonderful rendition of a very popular subject Marilyn! Your point and shot serves you well. It looks like you had a great trip to the southwest. I'm amazed at the ground you covered. I just returned from a trip to southern Arizona a couple of weeks ago. Seeing your gallery makes me want to return. Does the five legged creature which accompanied you post his photos on Panoramio? Greetings Tom

Many thanks, Tom. It looks as though your trip was wonderfully productive, and I'll be back to study it in more detail.

I've always played around with the EV controls on my compact, and this trip I also did a bit with the shutter and aperture priority modes. Not that there's a wide range of f stops!

There was a wide range of camera types as well as camera expertise on the photographic Elderhostel that made up more than half our trip. Although I admired the results of those with DSLRs, I also saw that my compact gave me an enviable freedom--from their more frequent need for tripods and their concern with choosing (and caring for!) lenses. I recognize that there are shots I can't take, but for the present I'll live with that. (Later this month we're going to South America, and I'll have a hard enough time getting myself around in the high altitudes--up to 12,500 ft.--without managing a larger camera!)

My husband doesn't have his own Panoramio site, but I've posted one of his photos here, and may post another when I find it. Greetings, Marilyn

Nice viewpoint. Crop the bottom to the base of the green bushes and the right side to exclude the last hillock. Then you've got a winner.

I appreciate the suggestion of such a fine photographer as you. Thank you.

Great shot of an eye-catching formation. L

I looked at your gallery in the "on the map" view. You've clearly done some globe-hopping!. An outstanding collection of photos. I'm surprised I hadn't already added your gallery to my favorites list, but I will now.

Greetings from Seattle, Bryan
