. Jenn presented me, forefully, with my Christmas present early this year. Though normally reluctant to open anything before Christmas eve, I couldn't resist and opened the box. DAMN.. A Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel SLR!!

More... I didn't expect this at all being about 4 times our normal christmas gift budget for eachother. But my goodness what a camera. The night we got it we took a trip to Alki for some dramatic pictures of the Seattle skyline at night.

I then took a day trip up to the North Cascades around Darrington for some outdoor shots. The weater was incredible for December, being 55 degrees and sunny.

The pictures turned out great. I can't believe how much sharper the images are and with 6.3 megapixels, now much freedom I have in cropping now. I can crop 50% of an image and still have the same sized picture as from my old Coolpix 885!

I made a collection of my favorite pics from the cascade day trip.
