    It's been a while since my last post. The last couple of months I didn't have enough time to post here. I did a lot of traveling (visiting 10 countries since my last post) and there was my Bachelor graduation project at Aerospace Engineering, which meant two months of really hard work. It was a lot of fun, though. In a group I had to design a camera that fits in a Nanosatellite (A satellite the size of a milk carton) and that has a 400 mm to take high resolution images of the earth. As a photographer, it was really interesting to learn a lot more about optics and sensors, and I had the opportunity to work with some professional lens design programs (Code V), which was really interesting.

    Anyway, now I'm back. I have taken more than 3000 pictures in the last months, so expect a lot of new pictures here . Here's a picture from Paris, it's the Notre Dame during sunrise (I arrived in Paris early in the morning). I blended two images in Photoshop to get this result:

    One of many pictures I shot of this Red Admiral butterfly, following it around the local vetch patch last Sat. Shot with the New 70-300.
    Even though it is not a Macro lens, it still has remarkable close-up capability on larger insects. Decent image size at 59".

    Nice Red Admiral Falconest. I do not remember the blues on the last ones I saw being as prominent and clear.

    Oh, you mean it was your father sitting on the mountain? He seem'd to be reading a newspaper and I was like that is an epic way to read a newspaper.
    Take your family on a boat ride, and don't forget to take your camera on the boat.. I remember there were so many off-shore windmills and it looked pretty amazing.

    Thanks for all your suggestions folks for my colour or BW version. Looks like there is no clear winner.

    Falconest: that's a superb shot. I have never seen a butteryfly in close action before.
