    OK folks.... here they are.....

    These pictures are sponsored by Mr Dent Express and BDL Motorsports. Why? I rented a nice Nikon camera and decided my company will pay the rental so I don't have to! ;)

    Just click top middle of each to full size them and right click and save any you want!

    I have a Canon DSLR but wanted to try a Nikon.... it was decent but wasn't wowed by it.

    www.mrdent.ca

    www.bdlmtorsports.com

    Think I have everyone, Paul's was posted before...

    OH, I should have maybe done handheld pictures on my step ladder to get up higher to get the lake in.. or Garth would say get a taller photographer.

    Also another idea. we SHOULD have done the photos first as would have been less people at 9:30am and then parked on the second half of the parking lot.

    And we should have done a group photo on ground level first then everyone could explore as they wish.

    NEXT TIME!

    I had to edit out this guy out of many pictures... ( he kept on taking pictures of the Corvettes - LOL ) someone should have offered him $10 to go away... LOL

    These two were Saturday evening...see how the late day sun shines on the 10 peaks

    Though the car is more in the shade then mid day.... need some soft flash lighting ( Ken, Heather and myself went to a course on that )

    And yes, I got the lake in mine... but getting more of the lake in gets that white sign in the shot.

    We were kinda rushed to shoot with the other people behind everyone.

    WHY doing the cars shoot FIRST when we arrive would be better

    Eric,the Stoney Nakoda resort and casino is on the corner of Hwy 1 and Hwy 40. Perfect starting point for a loop drive on 40 southbound to Longview. As well,a huge travel centre/gas station is well under construction next to the casino.

    Actually Paul did a cruise where we stayed in Cochrane after the mountains as Banff and Canmore were sold out and too much $$$.

    Lots of idea's could happen / be planned.

    Brian both a great idea and great pictures. You should have just given the guy a complimentary DynaPlug kit and sent him on his way.

    What Canon were you using? Taller pictures! I like that.

    I have a Canon 7D and maybe 5 lenses but they stayed home.

    I rented a Nikon D810 that is a $3500 body and a $2500 lens..... the pictures were nice but expected better.... maybe the camera is a 2 year rental now and getting older.... shutter count was about 8600 I think.

    Just a few teasers, working on the rest. Not sure if there's a way of tagging yourself and letting me know which car belongs to you. I'll batch the rest of your images and send them to you via the method we discussed. Thank you to ALL who donated, every little bit helps us to our goal of granting 1 child his/her wish. If we missed each other and you wish to donate to Make-A-Wish please contact Ken Turner and we'll arrange something. We enjoyed cruising with this amazing group and look forward to the next cruise. Until then travel safe!
