    Happy Dance! :wav::wav::wav:

    Picked up my Nikkor 80-400VR lens yesterday and yes it was raining. So this morning I headed out early before I had to go to work and caught the sunrise.

    And tomorrow we are expecting snow and Sunday should be cloudy. Man, I sure wish I could buy some sunshine right around now as it has been cloudy most of the month and we are really due for some nice weather.

    Thanks everyone. I hope to get out some more and keep working with the lens. The VR is great but some of my shots are not as sharp as I would like. Mind you I was pushing the speed down to keep up with the low light. Peter and I plan to meet at the Marsh this morning and I got a voice mail that Raymond, Daisy and Maria are in town so me will more then likely see them as well.

    Eric
