A few weeks ago, I got tangled up with the Pacific Ocean and got my camera wet. We sent the camera and lens to Canon, with a faint bit of hope that it could be repaired. Not. It was sent back to us with a note that it was beyond repair, and we (Jim) tossed it into the dumpster. Yikes! I was determined to live without it, but after much consternation, I gave in and ordered a new one.
This time I got a Canon Rebel Xsi with 12mp. It’s very similar to the one I had (Rebel Xti). I also ordered (gulp) the 18 – 200mm image stabilized lens, just like the one I had. I have a feeling I will be much more careful about where I step from now on!
I went out at sunrise this morning, which is pretty easy to do as far as the time, since it doesn’t even think about coming up until after 7 these days. The trick is having a sunrise here in Oregon! But today was perfect, so I’m sharing a shot of the sunrise over Devils Lake, just across the street from our rv park:
Today we are going to drive down the coast, visit some lighthouses and see what there is to photograph. Stay tuned, more pictures to come!
