A rainy walk in the woods
Lens: Optio W80 Camera: Optio W80 
Posted By: tessfully, 10-17-2011, 02:03 PM

I have been spoiled with nice lenses and my Kx, all but forgetting about my poor rejected and neglected point and shoot. However, today was pouring rain so I figured it was the waterproof Optio or no camera at all. Here are some fun pics I took of our hike.

Tripper Dawg



and me (see the family resemblence?)

The start of our path

The Optio is great for some shots but not so good with highlights

This is what the border collies do when I stop to take pictures

just kind of cool

now, back to regularly scheduled programming!

Beautiful series Tess, including you. This proves it is the photographer not the camera. I bet Dreamer has been a great friend and companion over the years. Love the fall colors and of course the "magic mushrooms". Sure is a beautiful place to take a stroll, Bob

Keep it up. You are doing good. You have learned that the best shots are taken in unusual weather. You would never have gotten those saturated colours without the rain. I especially like the tapestry of 6 and 7 and the two dogs tussling.

It's been said the best camera is the one you have with you. I really love the rich colors of the leaves - we don't get many reds here - nice series indeed. Great self portrait BTW.
