My names Joe and I am from Moline, Illinois USA the heart of the plains so no cool oceans and mountains to photo but a lot of cool stuff as we are a Major nesting area for Bald Eagles and Pelicans and Cranes on the Mississippi river here.

I have always done photography but with just normal cameras. I finally ordered myself some Christmas presents this year so Monday I will have me a shiny new camera. Below is the rig I will be starting with until I can afford my 100 mm Macro lens and some better non kit lenses. I am hoping to be able to take some really nice photos finally and learn how to improve them.
