To quote my cousin Ryan, Earl was a “hurrican’t”, and we got nothing but a light breeze and a few drops of rain in Cape May. However, he did provide for some cool-ish skies the nights before and after. The colors on the pre-Earl pictures were the wildest. Here’s a few, all from during or right after sunset. (Because of it’s position on the tip of the Dirty Jerz, you can watch the sunset over the water here.) I’m too lazy to Photoshop, so these are right out of the camera, reduced slightly for the web.
I posted a few of these to Tumblr to try it out, but it seems like scale them down considerably. Here’s the best one of the bunch (I think), slightly cropped:

Some fun with the new camera! Although I think there’s a lot to learn about it, the D5000 takes pretty nice photos right out of the box. Here’s a few shots as I wondered around the house/yard shooting whatever happened to be in front of me.
Although Ben is probably photographed more times a day then most of us are in an entire year, very few people can get him from this angle. (Taken from Sanjay’s office with his D70, I definitely need a DSLR now!)
