    Or coughing, sneezing and hacking up sand filled phelgm for the better part of a week.

    The sinus problem I'm suffering from was a small price to pay for such wonderful pics.

    Brak's, Mirax,

    Any eta on the pics? I know you guys are probably busy getting all settled in and such, but thought I'd follow up and see when we might expect the cd(s)/dvd(s)

    Sorry bout that. We have been extremely busy but I know he is working on getting them together. I don't know for sure when they will be ready.

    I meant to do this some time ago and forgot. Here are some select candid pics I took with my camera. http://www.swchick.com/images/Yuma/ Sadly, these are probably the last pics I will ever take with this camera as it is completely fried from the sand. Brak's lost his lens to the dust too

    Hey thanks for posting the extra pics. I's interesting to see the sky get bluer and bluer as each pictures is displayed in sequence. And sorry to hear you both sustained camera damage in the dust storm.

    We had bandannas and motorcycle goggles to protect us from the sand. I seriously don't know how the people RV'ing there could stand outside in that blowing sand with no protection. We couldn't have possibly done a shoot with out that gear.

    Sorry to hear about the busted camera and lost lens.

    I can't speak for the others, but I'll gladly pitch in a little for replacements.


    BTW, thanks for the link and update. I appreciate both!

    Beautiful SHOTS!! I bet you guys a still finding sand "everywhere!"

    The wind blow sand adds to the realism of the shot!

    Keep up the great work!

    I spent some time in Death Valley on camping trips and sand get into everything and everywhere and I mean EVERYWHERE (Places you didn't even knew you had).

    Thanks Ray, I appreciate that. We honestly had no clue that it would be like that out there. And we figured we could clean and blow out my camera and his lens with canned air and get them back to working...guess not I still find sand here and there from that trip, it is really crazy. Never seen anyplace like that but it was totally worth the trip, absolutely beautiful...hence I couldn't resist taking my camera out to take pics out there.

    sand is a camera's worst enemy! As bad or in some cases worse than water. It can fry the circuitry and get into all the moving parts and grind gears, scratch lenses, and attach itself to the CCD. Not fun. The pictures are awesome though. Can't wait to see more!

    The Great Braks himself has done some Snifftacular photography. Perhaps even better than the "Sniffer" himself!!!
