Looks like a fun summer. Some cool architecture, some cool rock formations.

Thanks Sandy. So what's the new camera?

I borrowed to my mother the one I used before, but, as I more and more need it, partly due to this forum, I decided to buy one. It's the same except it hasn't 5 years old!, this is a Canon Powershot S5 IS with 8 mo and a x12 zoom.
I don't have enough photography skills to buy a better one, and I was satisfied by the quality of its photos, then I hope the new one will have the same nice colors, these pics are my first ones with it, seems to be OK but the real test will be when I will be in a US city as NYC, or, and I would love that, in a National Park(before this forum, I never took photo when I travelled in France, the only shots I made these last 15 years was on US trips), I don't used to take landscape pictures, not enough colors contrasts, so I've got nothing to compare with!
Anyway, thanks for your interest

Landscape is a different beast than city photography for me. I'm starting to get better at landscape, but it's still hit and miss for me. It really requires a tripod and patience which I tend to lack.
