When in comes to Christmas, there’s some American traditions that come to mind. Sleigh rides in New England, Snow in the Colorado mountains, and the tree at Rockefeller Center in New York among them. We went there recently, and I was able to capture this panoramic image of the scene. Right behind where I was standing, the Saks Fifth Avenue music and building light show was playing. With the cold and snow, sounds and sights, it was a wonderful Christmas tradition.
And all that was made possible by incredible customer service from Mike’s Camera in Lone Tree, Colorado. I’d purchased a new lens (and sold my old one), then discovered that it was out of alignment – yeah, I should have tested it first, but didn’t expect any issues with a Nikkor. Simon went above and beyond, arranged a rapid repair, and kept me up to date on the progress and status…without me having to call and ask. The lens came back in time for my trip, and I couldn’t be happier. Customer service to that level is all too rare these days, and I highly recommend looking him up if you’re in the market for gear in Colorado.
