My first published photo!

Well sorta, it appeared on TV.  I didn't see it but a friend on FB did and took the  pic for me! 
I have been taking pictures for quite some time now. Since I bought that awesome EasyShare in Denver in 2005. Now that I have the Sony Cybershot DSC HX200v (twice) 
I have started taking it seriously. I still call myself an amateur Nature Photographer, but 
I have been going to Saturday morning Photoshop classes and now I have joined the 
TCCC, Twin Cities Camera Club, which is part of several clubs so I can go to a number
of lectures and now I can have my photo's critiqued as well as learn so much more about
And Nature photography hikes!!! Even in winter they have been exhilarating. Here are two of my favorites.

Sometimes on a hike and hundreds of photos I only get one really good one. But it's worth it. 

I was gong through my photos and found this from one of my kayak outings when I lived on Tampa Bay.  Breathtaking! 

I think I am on to something. I have a hobby that gets me out, and now I am joining clubs and classes where I can meet people that like the same things.  I am definitely going to enter some competitions as well.
