About a month ago I dropped my D7000 on the pavement with the 70-200 lens attached. The lens is okay but the camera is now a paperweight. It had 115,000 shutter clicks and had travelled with me to some wonderful sights, so I will continue to enjoy looking at it but not using it. I used by D3100 as a backup when I found this patch of canna lilies. Just after taking these shots I found a used, like new D610 in the local camera shop.
I am really sorry to hear about your camera it had to be like losing an old friend. I am so glad you could find a replacement. Your images are beautiful. I love the color.
