Thank you all for your kind words and extra thanks to the approvers for the AC recognition!

And yes, we have it all in New York! It's mostly a very rural state with lots of forests, swamps, lakes and waterways and those of us in western New York are almost 400 miles from the big city.

What a beautiful picture! I love the rich colors. Congrats on the AC. This one is definitely going on my desktop at work. Love it! My coworkers love to see your pictures. They never think of New York like this. Those of us from Western New York love the secret of the natural beauty that always surrounds us. Jewel of a photo.

I have to chuckle to myself...I never think
of swamps being in New York. Then I have to
remember that New York is a state...not just
a city.

Very nice capture of this colorful swamp.
Thank you for sharing it with us.

Congratulations, Gale, on your AC!

Aha! Now I get it. Thanks for clearing that up for me. I an certainly understand the Canon being your favorite (my 60D is my favorite), but I too carry a pocket camera when I don't want to lug around the weight of the Canon.

Again, a lovely shot and thanks for setting me straight.

I have both cameras. In the profile area it asks what your favorite is and I have the Canon EOS 40D listed. I took this shot with the Nikon because it's easier to carry around with me in my purse all the time since it's so small. I just happened to be passing by today and snapped a quick shot. The EXIF data shows the actual camera that was used.

A lovely picture, but now I'm confused. The panel says the camera is a Canon EOS 40D, but the EXIF says it is a Nikon Coolpix 510.

Can anyone explain this discrepancy?
