Now that's what I'm talking about!

For the photo geeks that just wandered by, this is one of my favorite subjects, shot with a Nikon N80, el cheapo plastic bodied kit lens, on Fuji Sensia 100 slide film, developed by Cord Camera, and scanned by Costco.

UV filter only, by the way. I'm going to try the shot with a nice Circular Polarizing filter this year, but it's going to be a bit before the background is ready.

Pretty sad that my old film camera and cheapo lens are beating the snot out of anything you can get out of digital, but there it is. Nikon D40? Good for people pictures, lousy for landscapes. Canon 20D? Ditto. Any compact I've ever tried? Don't make me laugh.

Real landscape photographers use film, period.
