    Sure thing! I was hoping to go this Friday afternoon, but got roped into a meeting that killed those plans. Oh well, probably would have had difficulty finding an open seam with it being a holiday weekend. I will just wait a week for the crowds to maybe slow down.

    BTW, I carry my D90 with 18-50mm f/2.8 lens in a roll-top pack by SealLine. When I had my D40 and 18-55 it would actually all fit inside my Fishpond Dragonfly. Now I just sling it over my shoulder. Here is a link to the pack I use:

    Beautiful pictures.... we've all seen enough fish and they all look the same.
    I believe they are, however they are a little different from the one's I usually see in the park. They are usually smaller, and the petals overlap each other. On these the petals do not overlap and it has a little black center. Maybe just a different species of trillium. Below is a pic of what I am more familiar with:

    All but the 4th picture appear to be varieties of trillium. "Jack in the Pulpit" is a very different flower. If you see one, you will see that the name is quite appropriate.

    Default Beautiful Pics

    It definately pays to take a quality camera

    I guess you just need a quality rain jacket to match

    Thanks for sharing

    You know, I got that jacket on sale for 50% off. I have not had many problems with it, but it is not a technical jacket. It works for probably 95% of the conditions I encounter, but that storm was just extremely heavy.

    When this one wears out, I will go ahead and spring for a good Gore-Tex technical jacket. Lesson learned!
