Been Here For Awhile...

I joined some time ago but haven't introduced myself yet. I've been shooting since high school (I'm 50+ now) and was shooting film until about 4 years ago when I bought my first Pentax DSLR body. I'd used various Pentax 35mm equipment and a Mamiya 645 system but once I started shooting digital I was hooked. I currently have a K10D body and Pentax 28-200 mm, 18-55 mm, and a Sigma 170-500 mm lenses. I use Photoshop 7.0 to edit my photos. I live in the North Denver, Colorado area, and try as often as possible to get out and shoot, either in the mountains to the west, or north or east of Denver for a variety of scenery. My primary interests are railroads, aircraft, and scenery subjects. I have posted some shots in my gallery and have about 350 posted at my website.
