Last & First

This is just about the last photo from my D40X, taken at Fox Run Park on Saturday. By the end of this walk it couldn't expose anything correctly. There was lots of fresh snow on Pikes Peak, as the remnants of a Pacific Hurricane had gone over us on Thursday and Friday, dropping 2 inches (5 cm) of rain at our house, but lots of snow higher up.
And here are some of the first photos from my new D5300 which I picked up later that day. I figured I'd practice with two of my favorite subjects, Socks and Laika, and a wide-aperture lens.

  7. Hi Al, we got about 6" of snow here at the house in Breckenridge. I took my new camera with me on a trail walk this AM - I'm still learning it and the snow adds a new dimension! Yours is taking great closeups of your furry friends.
