Time to break in the new D700 in Death Valley!
What better way to break my months of silence and uber-study than to announce that I got a sweet new Nikon D700 as an early graduation/tax return gift to myself? After months of saving and with a looming trip to Death Valley with MJC, I was somehow able to convince my lovely wife that I indeed needed $3000-worth of camera equipment. With that trip now in the rear view mirror and my comps approaching, I thought I'd post the first practice shots from our jaunt through the desert with Geotripper. He does a much more magnificent job of story telling, but I thought several of you may enjoy the following photos.
