Stephen, did you post a link to another site where you have your photographs? I know I've seen that barrel racing (that's what it looks like anyway) shot of the rider - which is great. Maybe I just happened upon it or it was through one of the links Amin put up for examples of the new gallery software.
The birch trees are beautiful...and of course that first one is a knock out!
Looking forward to hearing and seeing more from you.
Great shots Stephen and I particularly like the sunset!! I gave it a lot of thought about the two lenses, the 14-150 and the 44-200 and bought the latter but in retrospect wished I had got the former.
