I love all the colors in the trees in that Water Gap/Poconos pic...we don't get that when the seasons change here in San Diego CA.

Depends on your budget, what features you want, what is important to you...

As a default answer I would say Canon or Nikon, but I switched to a Panasonic because it had exactly what I wanted, whereas the Canon didn't have a few things but did have some other things I don't necessarily need.

I've got one beautiful color changing tree like that in my backyard. I love watching it go through all the seasons every year.

Taken at Moss Beach, CA. The original was very dark and I was a bit disappointed. So I lightened up the image and saw these millions of Stars and if you look closely to the top left you can see what looks like another Galaxy?

No the avocado stays green and produces fruit year round.

The tree is a Liquidambar. It's gorgeous, in the fall the star shaped leaves turn a rainbow of bright reds, oranges, purples and yellows. I it.

It was small when I bought my house 10 years ago, it's grown alot but still is not a really big tree... I'm sure I've taken photos of it over the years, I'll look around and see if I have any to post. If you google image "liquidambar" you can see examples.

This is NOT my tree, just a googled example but this is just how my tree looked 10 years ago, it's alot bigger now!

That's a really pretty tree. It doesn't drop prickly balls does it? My Mom up in the Bay Area has City planted trees on her street that looks kind of like this liquidamber but they drop prickly balls and the roots push up the sidewalks and pavement.

Yes it does drop prickly balls But they have never bothered me and they aren't really super prickly. I don't think it's big enough to have any root problems yet, but it's out in a yard.

Agree with Justin - Canon! Can't really go wrong with either Canon or Nikon, but lens selection can't be beat on the Canon side.

I'm guessing iloveedge was going for the digicam market and not dSLR. In that case, it really depends on your budget, as Canon & Nikon don't dominate there nearly as much as in the dSLR market.

love all the latest pics everyone.

iloveedge - i've had 2 canon digitals, was happy with both, though they were never amazing models, i had quite basic models. Never had a nikon or samsung so can't compare. I now have a Panasonic DMC FX30 which i love.

Heres a random pic i found while uploading pics to facebook. Can't remember if i have posted it here. Its a cell phone pic so sorry about the quality. Its Lake Ullswater in The Lake District, England. Such a pretty place.

^That is a gorgeous shot, from a cell phone no doubt! Excellent I was in the Lake District in England in October! It is very beautiful there, and we were blessed with the most gorgeous weather during our trip which made for some really nice pictures.

Thanks for all of your help guys. I bought a Canon powershot SX100 IS. My mum wouldn't let me buy a bigger one, but it works just fine for me!

I have spent over an hour and a half going through each and every post in this thread and I'm awestruck at all your lovely pictures.

I would like to ask everyone's permission to use your pictures as wallpaper for my computer. They are so breathtaking (especially the sunsets) and having them in front of me would have a very calming affect on me.

Well done everyone!
