During my recent California trip, my sister and I drove from Nuevo to Phoenix to visit an aunt and uncle we lived with for several months way back in our teen years. Had great fun on that trip. Gave my Nikon D40X and Quantaray OS lens a real workout, including from inside my sister's car. Captured this road shot near Palm Springs.

    A fantastic shot!!! Stunning sky. I have a Quantaray lens and am not real happy with it. It works but I think it should work better more consistently.

    Deb, this scene looks 3D! I love the way the sky dominates the photo. Even the beautiful mountains in the distance seem dwarfed and almost insignificant, because the sky is so dominant. Very unique and spectacular shot.

    Thanks everyone. I've only had my Quantaray since Christmas. So far I'm very happy with it. Can't wait to use it in Italy. I head back there this Friday.
