"The Perfect Day"

This image is one of my first digital images made almost 9 years ago.  I still love it.  My first digital camera was a Fuji S-1 Pro. At the time, it was the camera to beat - about 3 mega-pixels and only $6000 - Wow! What a steal!  The next closest priced camera at the time was Kodak's DCS 650 at about $20,000+.  The Fuji was known for great color, you just couldn’t enlarge the image much past 11x14 inches. Anyway, saving a $1000/wk in film and processing sure looked like an attractive fiscal option to me. I was hooked on digital and NEVER looked back to using film again.  This image was made early one Spring evening, just as a storm was brewing in the distance. We finished the shoot before the rains hit, but the clouds sure add a wonderfully dramatic aspect to the image. Camera specs; Fuji S-1 Pro fitted with 16mm Nikkor fisheye, F8.0 @ 1/100 second, ISO 320.  Enjoy!  -David
