    Forgot my camera, but...

    This weekend I was stuck in Cedar Rapids Iowa while my wife was busy in a track and field coaching workshop. I stumbled across a little park and decided to do some hiking in the snow to kill some time while waiting for her lunch break. I had forgotten my camera (G9) back at the hotel. (I wasn't planning on this being a photography trip so I left the DSLR at home.) I did have my new Garmin Oregon 550t with me which has a built in 3.2mp camera so that is what I used. It's not the easiest thing to hold steady while trying to press the touch screen to trip the 'shutter' but it works. It was a lot better than not having any camera.

    I'd say it worked out rather well. This is a very nice capture.
