Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

This last trip to Maui was spur of the moment, it was my 7th and every year is diff. I have always planned to go to Haleakala but something always comes up. This trip I came prepared, I scheduled it the day after I arrived, so that I will still be in California time, as I have to get up around 3am (2hr trip). As I drove the dark winding road I was ok, I got to the top just as the light was breaking, and as I got my gear out of the car, I realized I forgot most of the gears I packed to keep me warm, specially my mittens, but I managed and took photos anyway. It was absolutely amazing, everything about the place is breathtaking in more ways than one, physically and emotionally. I stayed there for at least 4 hrs after sunrise, everybody left after sunrise, little did they know that more beautiful things happened afterwards, the rolling of the clouds, the changing of colors, as sun rises, I have to sit down and just try to capture everything in my mind and store in my memory what my lens cant capture. Just absolute beauty, brought tears to my eyes, so serene so calm. I didn't want to leave but I was starving, as I forgot to pack my lunch too. It was the highlight of my trip, everything after that day was just hohum...

    Absolutely beautiful, both the photo and the narrative. I've also found that most people leave way too early and miss many of th best sights. Glad you stayed .. next year though, make a list and take all your gear with you. ;-)
