    Hello all,

    I've been a new convert to Oly and their wonderful lenses. My other camera that I haven't touched since is a Leica M9 and various Leica lenses and I must say I'm blown away by Oly and what they've done with this system. I'm completely in love! I just wanted to say thank you for all that you do on this forum, I've learned countless tips and tricks and have received some wonderful inspiration. I was out fishing this morning and shot a little mini doc of my time out there. The Oly performed amazingly well and the water and spry didn't give me heart burn as it would on the Leica. I really believe this platform is as close to perfect for me as could be. Cheers

    River

    The boat carries merchandise
    slowly downstream,
    past signalling long grass.
    A town is waiting
    far away, drying its roofs
    by the edge of the water,
    calling in its fish.
    The boat searches for the pale
    blue and brown verticals of wood,
    the families gentle on doorsteps,
    and the town is attentive to the river
    murmuring the motor in it's mud.

    I love your signature it must be beautiful in Miami Mike C. I'm from Winnipeg Manitoba Canada if you want to get a kick out of our weather you can check out this link http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/winnipeg-deep-freeze-as-cold-as-uninhabited-planet-1.2479967

    That's right our temp has been colder than the surface of Mars :eek:

    That day I was in full on winter gear and combined with the speed of the boat it was cold...but nothing compared to my ice fishing adventures which I'll be sure to document and post.

    All the best out in warm Miami
    Cheers
