    Nice capture!

    So... what are the rules? Do you have to stay with one camera or one focal length for each day's picture?

    It's not even about the pictures; it's about the memories and communication.

    Well that didn't last long! Just when I was looking forward to each day's shot
    Great catch by the way! And anyway rules are made to be broken.

    The rules were D800 with no size reduction/special processing to take advantage of the MP's and the 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 only... Basically it's as close to a "basic kit setup" as I can get. The goal was a quality picture every day that I didn't already have in my portfolio.

    I made it almost two weeks with only a couple crap images. And I've not given up trying to find something interesting/new every day. But it was an unrealistic challenge....

    Great image. Now that you have THAT out of your system, go on back to the original plan. You were on a roll with it.
