Then I immediately got within 6 inches of everything I could possibly find around our little cabin. Here are some of the sample from my afternoon of shutter snapping....

This one is my favorite out of all the photos I took today.

Also... my brand new Canon 50D was just delivered at my doorstep by the very nice UPS man. More on that later. And more importantly, more photos from it later!
