Hoping for fall

Hoping that the leaves will begin to turn soon, I am anxious to get out and get some new fall foliage shots.  Looks like the weather will cooperate this weekend with cooler temps and clear skies.  I will be posting up my choice of location and some shots, with comments on how the shoot went.

This was taken in Maine during a moose watching safari.  This image can also be found on my website

These images were taken with my Nikon D90 and my Sigma DP2s.

The new Nikon D7000 has caught my eye.  I will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of this new body.  Some of the features that interest me are the lower iso compared to my D90, the higher resolution sensor and the dual card slots.

My other new love is my 24-70 lens.  Even though this is an FX lens(full frame) on my D90 (dx body, crop sensor) it is the best lens I now own.  Razor sharp, fast focus, this is one of the pieces I have been missing when it comes to improving my results.

I recommend this lens and I hope to be able to put this lens on a new D7000 in the near future.
