After the swell, where else to go but rays for a bacon cheeseburger... then on to sego canyon and island in the sky to further test the d850. i’m liking it. it’s fun to use something besides my iphone. but i won’t be posting anything from the nikon d850 for a while. i don’t even have software that will open the raw files. road trips rock. #greenriver#utah#buick#cruising
