Thanks John. I started with an Olympus OM-1 in the seventies. Loved that camera. All gone now, house burned down. Didn't take up photography again till the Nikon D300 came out.  Huge lapse of time in between there(35 yrs). Saved the slides and negatives though.

Wow, what a scene! I prefer the color. Nice rays (assuming they didn't appear in post :) ).

Thanks Matt. They were there(didn't know they could be added in processing), but what I neglected to mention is that the large snag on the right is no longer standing. Storm took it down little over a year ago.

I have almost the same experience. Left photography for about 20 years after shooting slides with my Nikon FA, first multi-pattern metering SLR. I think digital produces too much emphasis on Post processing techniques and not enough on Composition and Aesthetics. Anyway, thought you may enjoy this video which is a review of the OM-1, still available on the market. Apparently you can no longer buy the 1.3 volt battery it needs. You have to modify it to use 1.5 volts which are still available. I really like the simplicity of the controls! It seems film photography is on the rise and Kodak is expanding!

No, I don't have any film cameras anymore. Taken with a Nikon D300 on a Manfrotto tripod in August of 2012.16-85 Nikkor lens, ISO 125,f25,1/160s. White balance manual. Processed in Adobe CS4 from a NEF.

That was a good year for taking photographs!
I also prefer the color-one

There are a few new "AI-powered" editing apps that can pretty easily add things like rays with a few clicks. Or swap skies or whatever. That stuff really turns me off. A legit photo of an actual occurrence has so much more appeal. Even more so if it includes something that is now gone like the snag.

In Gran paradiso, the Italian Alps. They were almost gone due to hunting, but then they spotted a group in Gran Paradiso- Now they are protected and the numbers grow.
They are now also transported to other parts of the Alps. As you can see they are not afraid at all- they know were are not a threat to them anymore. They are really intelligent animals.

The Steinbocks are (at least now)  not considered endangered. There are around 45'000 exemplars in the Alps.
But anyway, real intelligent animals would still avoid humans  ;)
Just a little joke

This is one of my Tree paintings...it all starts with an idea and then the search for the right motif. 60"x70" O/L

Peter, that looks like my backyard which provides quite a bit of inspiration. Like it. Thought I'ld throw in a few more in memory of the snag.

Love the painting, Peter.

We've just had our first snowfall of the winter here in Somerset (UK).

...  We've just had our first snowfall of the winter here in Somerset (UK).

Such a lovely scene, the first one, the combination of fall (autumn) leaves and snow. The subdued tonality contributes to a tapestry feel.
