Off to Sedona, Arizona

Today we're leaving to fly to Sedona. I have been invited by my friend to give a lecture at his camera club. The subject is "An Introduction to HDR". From what he tells me, a good part of the members have never heard of hdr or think it's the work of the devil and has no place in photography. It should be interesting. Wish me luck.

Catching up and a NIK announcement

I apologize that I haven't posted in a while, but I'm back now and plan to post on some kind of regular schedule. No excuses to offer other than sometimes life goes by too fast.
