It is strongly recommended that you not tell DW that....

taken Saturday morning with the itty bitty Sony RX100 III. Love having it handy and not having to "settle" for iphone pics.

Great shot Mr Paul - but I haven't seen any closeups of Sophie lately. I have a Sony RX-100 also. Great camera -especially for those times that I don't want to carry a dslr. And like you - it's great not having to settle for iPhone pics. I usually take the Sony wherever I go.

I'd call that a lot of snow!

Hope not too much more coming your way.

I have to admit I love living in the tropics and not having to worry about cold weather.

Thanks Ronstar ... yep the Sony was on my belt clip the entire 3 week camping trip. Love it!

The first two of Sophie were with a Canon 300mm + the 1/4x extender. The last one was with a Rokinon 14mm.

We enjoy colder weather. I'd enjoy visiting the tropics, but not sure I'd want to live there...

Now that I am ER'ed, I am really trying to be judicious in my purchases - especially in my first year or two of my "new life". But every time I venture into this thread and see the great images posted by others, I realize I NEED A GREAT CAMERA. The photographic opportunities around me are an endless bounty - but taking shots of all these wonders with an iPhone is rather insulting to the material.

I am undecided on whether my first post-ER indulgent purchase will be a high end camera, a big (12" diameter) deep space telescope, or an underwater hydrophone setup (to listen to orca sounds). I want all three badly. First world problem, I know.

Prices on 610 have gotten lower. Maybe use the savings for a waterproof case...

Sea Kayaker, those are some tough choices.

Mr. Paul, those shots of Sophie are worthy of framing and hanging on the wall. I would.

Maybe one day we'll hang some more Sophie pics but we have found room for these two for now. Both from her puppy days.

Sophie with my son's dog Sam, a red heeler who is Sophie's dad (her mom is a Golden Retriever)

Been quiet here. Nothing particularly good from me to post.

We have squatters:
