Hello from Southern Alberta

Well I have decided to come forth and introduce myself after spending hours and hours going through posts and photos on this site. I am amazed by the wealth of information and the knowledge and sharing of information that goes on in this little corner of the internet. I bought my first SLR new, it was a K1000 so I guess that dates me a bit. After a quite a few years of simply using a point and shoot I decided to look at these new fangled DSLRs and purchased a used K20 (got a great deal !!). I have some older lenses I have been playing with and I must say there is a bit of an initial learning curve with these new cameras however I must say every issue I have run into has been addressed somewhere in this forum. Having a lot of fun with this camera and am looking forward to figuring out how to post a photo. Regards to all.

Welcome from another Albertan and a K20 owner. I bet you have a lot of great photo opportunities in the Crowsnest area. This forum is a great place to share photos and information.

Hello, neighbour! Welcome to the forum. It's not the best driving weather to be visiting John's Barber Shop, but I'm almost due ...

One hopes not to see elk close in front of the vehicle. They make a very expensive dent. They are down right now foraging where the snow isn't quite as deep as higher up. I wonder why they call this the Elk Valley ... must be because of the Elk River. <G>

Hi - I'm in the next province to the east. Spent some camping/photography time in the Crowsnest area in the summer - had a super time!
