@jobodaho: you could sell those dune shots to a poster company, the lighting is absolutely perfect.
And now for something completely different: Bantam Hens! Was in Corvallis, Oregon and surrounding areas over the weekend of the 12th for my sister's graduation, and a family friend who hosted the party afterwards keeps egg chickens. They have been completely tamed by repeated contact with young children bearing bread crumbs and old produce, so the challenge was keeping them far enough away for the Tokina ATX 80-200mm f/2.8 to actually focus. Puh-kawwwk!
Not too happy about the overexposed branches in the fourth frame, but it was too dark under the tree to get the shot without a flash, and my speedlite had been left behind due to luggage limitations.
He who laughs last, laughs first next time.
