Another newbie, from Norway this time

Hello, everybody!

I just joined, hoping to find some tips and tricks to improve my photography and maybe to make it even more fun, as well as make some new acquaintances.

I reckon I'm a young padawan by this forum's standards - or at least inexperienced - with merely 24 years under my belt.

Until now I've mostly used an Olympus C740-UZ compact camera and I picked up my very first SLR - the Pentax K10D - just before summer. Can't say I regret the purchase so far. I tried out my friends and family's cameras - Canon EOS 350D and 400D, Nikon D80 and Pentax K100D. Then, after reading up on reviews and listening to people's thoughts, I decided to go for the K10D.

Apart from photography, my main interests are electronics, computers and nature, and I suppose my pictures reflect this - at least the nature part.

Where do you live in Norway? Oslo area?

Lucky you, a K10D!

Norway you say, my dream country, always wanted to visit it but never came arround to it.

Do not live that far away (Belgium). I heard your country is a paradise for nature fotografers!

Not too far away from Oslo - about an hour drive to the southwest.

Norway sure does have its wonders, and I have seen a lot of beautiful pictures from her. But I don't think Norway's better off than for example Britain or Italy or the US. I guess it just depends on what you're looking for, and on the eye of the beholder, as usual
