Thanks for the comments everyone. As we've learned in trying to piece together the story about the lost lens hood, with time memory fades. I say that because there have been so many great photos taken with Nikki over the last ten months that it can only be memory lapse that says my photos are particularly noteworthy. We're all pretty fine photographers here and I've certainly been impressed with what I've seen. And, it certainly is a pleasure to use a lens that has been in the hands of members of this cyber community. We've all done remarkably well with this adventure. I'm honored to be the last one using this fine lens before it heads back to its rightful owner.
Here are a few random shots that haven't made it to the thread, all taken with Nikki.
This is how they make fences at Green Gulch Zen Center... And here is a horseback rider that followed me up the dirt road leading to where I'd parked my car. Only residents and those attending retreats are permitted to drive into the center of the site.
This is bark that has fallen from a eucalyptus tree. These trees were brought from Australia and have definitely found a home here, though their potential for fueling fires is not appreciated. Efforts have been made to get rid of them for that reason, but like many invasive species, it is practically impossible to eradicate. Of course, sometimes they make a nice photo...
