Now For Something Completely Different

Red Rock Canyon
Originally uploaded by Pixel Letch.
Decided to take a break from Seattle drizzle and cold and go to the desert for the holidays to see some friends. Took along my new Nikon D80 system and have been having fun shooting some scenery.

We went up to Sedona for Christmas and was able to go out to shoot some of the beautiful red rock formations for which the area is famous.

I've been shooting with my new lenses; Sigma 17-70mm f/3.5 Macro, 70-300 f4.5 APO Macro and Nikon 50mm f/1.8. I bought a polarizing filter for the 17-70 and was quite pleased with the dramatic skies and color. The only bummer was when i somehow got a watterspot onthe filter and didn't see it on the last day's shooting. I'm hoping I can fix the spot in Photoshop.
