Hi, I'm Rick also known as Mr. C. I used to shoot with a Canon SLR, but that was a long while back. I got a new camera, an Olympus SP-510UZ on 11/06/06. I've added a Nikon D90 with a 55-200 lens to my camera bag in 2010. I'll get a camphone if Almont ever enters the 21st century.

I'm now shooting with a brand new Nikon D90 with a 55-200mm VR lens.

Called scoria here, but it's not a volcanic result. Here, it's the result of where seams of lignite coal burned. This is a bit of the scoria recently spread over our back road.

Thanks, Euphro. It's fun driving on red rock roads. One of the things I love about ND is finding out all these odd bits of information.
