Nice pictures Gary.  Thanks for sharing.  

Are you putting your pics through any post processing or are you posting them up just as the camera took them?  I am just curious.  I used to be anti-post processing but I am considering it more these days since I just started shooting more RAW format pics.

I use an App called PicMonkey (http://www.picmonkey.com/) and go though my pictures and make them look as I saw the shots not the way my Canon T3 DSLR saw and made them. I don't like RAW storage as I cannot view the images without opening them. I shoot in the smallest format.

I have been shooting photos for 45 years, the last 10 in digital.

I might have to check that app out Gary.  I shoot both RAW and jpg for each shot I take.  Eventually I may go straight to RAW.  Like I said I am just learning how to manipulate RAW files.  I can look at the jpg images and if there is something I don't like then I can get into the RAW file and manipulate what I want.  It is a learning process.  Fun though.  

I have been shooting for about 20 years with the last 10 being digital.  You take some good shots Gary.  Nice work.

I dont save my images after I have had them long enough to look at them. I usually delete them after about 6 months. I shoot every day during my 6 month vacations so I usually have 10's of thousands. I post them to Trailspace,Facebook, and share with friends and family. In 45 years I have probably shot millions.

All I currently have are what I shot since just before Christmas in that Collage. All others are online somewhere or deleted. Next fall, winter and spring I may hike the AZT, the Arizona Trail from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon to Tucson and then may make a photo book of my hike. 

I plan to retire in about two years when I am 60 in January 2016 on my own savings then really retire on SSI when I am 65 in 2021.
