I always carry a camera, just never know whats just up ahead, or behind. Just sharing where I've been and what I see. Then a little computer work to make the photos pop!
Camera of Choice: Nikon D800 w/either DX or AF-S Nikkors 10mm to 600mm. Also Canon 50D & Canon lenses from 10mm to 400mm. Nikon D800 requires scheduled maintenance, so Canon is chosen more often. Tripod: Bogen/Manfrotto MT057C4-G; Giottos Carbon Fiber MT8160; Manfrotto 3021.
Computer: RZ Systems 16GB HD using Western Digital 4TB External HD for backup. Monitor: 32" LCD HP. D800 multiple exposures eat memory like candy!
