  1. Thanks for the photo tip. Interesting and useful. Will think about that as I make my final camera choice. Are you remembering last winter in the campground near Yuma?Arizona/CA?

    1. I wonder if there is a camera that actually does HDR well. Dunno… I really haven’t paid much attention to cameras in recent years. I did just sell an old one and replaced it with a Nikon D7100. One reason I chose that model is because it will auto bracket up to 5 shots for HDR. Another reason was that they reduced the price $500 presumably because they are clearing them out.

      I just heard from some friends that I met last year in the desert that they will be heading back there, so yeah, I’ve thought about it 🙂
