My son and I took a 3 day trip out over the MLK weekend break. A full report is on my website here:

http://www.sefcik.com/2011/01/nude-wash-sky-art-sculptures-abdsp.html

It was a great trip of easy going, campfire, hanging out and playing with my (new to me) camera. Here a few pics, see my website for more:

Some Sky Art






A lizard at the visitor center


Some Cholla near Mine Wash


'Bones our dog scouting for kangaroo mice


17 Palms Oasis


Another attempt at star trails, the bright star is Venus, this was about 4;30am

Nice pics Daren.
I love those Galleta Meadows sculptures. Did you get out and see the huge Tyrannosaurus ?

So what camera did you end up with? Loks like it is taking great pics. Did you get a tripod for it also?

We saw pretty much all of the sculptures I thought existed. When we got home and I looked up the galleta meadows website I saw there were 2 bighorn rams and the juan bautista sculptures we did not see..guess that means another trip out..smile

I bought a mostly new sony a300 with extra lenses and all the trimmings..it was something I could afford. Any of the Canons or Nikons were 2-3 hundred more (used) so I will learn with this one. I already had a tripod and is definitely needed. I am just happy I can take night photos again..!

I looked up your camera. It has some nice specs.
I think I read it can take Minolta lenses, which would be a selling point for me.
We have a couple nice lenses from our old Minolta SLR that no longer works.

It can use the AF lenses. Basically Sony bought Minolta so a lot of the Sony camera stuff is Minolta at the core. What kinda lenses you got? You wanna sell?
