Talking Hello eveyone from the Great White North

Hello from the Great White North, i actually should say the Canada's Florida, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

I'm an old photographer from the old school of film days, got into photography way back in high school. I kept up with photography while I served 13 years in the RCAF as a pilot, I have some rather interesting photos from those years. Although there wasn't much room in a CF-101 for an fancy lens, so I was stuck with the point and shot type of camera.

Over the years I've progressed from film to digital now, although i've still retained one one of my old film SLR's with a couple of lenses. My subject line is still has a lot to do with flying although the air craft have become bigger and much slower than the last military air craft I flew the CF-18 Hornet.

My subjects of desure to photograph are wild life and scenery, being that I live in one of the most beautiful parts of North America, the province of British Columbia. And of course Vancouver Island is even more beautiful being that it is facing the Pacific Ocean. Some of the most breath taking ocean scenery was right out my own back door.

I just took delivery of the new Canon SX10 IS, although this is not technically a digital SLR, it's as close as my budget will allow presently. Besides it give me control as well as a point and shot for those shots I don't want to miss. Living in a "rain forest" there have been a number of times I wish I could have just pointed and shot. The SX10 IS has a 28 to 500 mm lens with a lot of features I have yet to master.

So once I have mastered this camera and had the time to get some shots worthy of posting here I will do so, if anything but to get a creative and honest opinion of my skills. Although my skills maybe a tad rusty they are still there. Like riding a bike, we never forget, we just need to get back on the saddle again.

The one thing I do love about digital, the cost of experimenting is drastically reduced compared to film. And cropping and edititing a picture is so much easier than the olds. It's actually a great time to get back into this hobby.

Welcome to Pixalo TJ

Always good to have some background information to help us get to know you.

Quite a few of us have had a similar journey to you (although not in a CF-101).
