I don't know what happened this year but it sure has flown by. I am looking forward to getting out into some cooler weather and start shooting. I sent my camera and broken lens off to get cleaned. I have to say I am very impressed with Nikon service. I can't ever hear my lens move now. I was worried it would cost more to repair then I paid for it but Nikon came through. I got it fixed better than before for almost 1/3 of what I expected. Thanks Nikon.
Hope to have some new photos up soon and am looking forward to seeing some of yours! Happy posting everyone.
