It was November of 07', and I was still 4 months away from purchasing my first DSLR, so I took my brand new Canon G9 (purchased on St. Maartan's while on our cruise a month before) and headed out to Clove lake to take pictures there for the first time in almost 20 years. Nice as many of the shots turned out, most of them just didn't stack up to the shots I used to get with my old F3 using Kodachrome and Ectachrome film. (Was it fair to even assume any point and shoot camera could?)
I determined then and there to find a way to scrape up enough money to purchase a new Nikon as soon as it was economically feasible.This shot however did not contribute to that decision as I was simply delighted with the results.
