    Yeah, today's pic looks like Mark is just having a blast! It's making me itchier than most Mondays for some snow!

    And GOM, dude, trust your autofocus. It's going to give you a much higher rate of keepers. You're not going to be able to tell if the shot is in focus by just looking through the viewfinder. And if you are relying on the focus confirmation lights, you're relying on your camera's autofocus system anyway- you're just being a hand-powered focus motor. I know that it kind of sucks to only have 3 autofocus points like on your D40, (not a dig- it's an excellent camera) but you can always focus and then recompose the shot.

    Yeah I go by sight alone, never use any autofocus features unless I am doing action shots...I found that it is incredibly difficult to get good focus on something moving when you have to focus manually. I'll get some pics up this year, I'm no amateur with a cam, my dad was a professional photographer for a while when he was in the airforce and I got a bunch of teaching growing up.

    i love skiing with mark because he is really meticulous about things. He thinks what he is going to do, does a few motions, and then goes and does it just like he planned.

    Plus he never really gets mad about anything he bails on....and never claims WOOT!
