All you digital users out there
Do you get these amazing shots while using tripods, or do you use a "natural" tipod like rocks and trees to get a steady shot?

:) I got a tripod and gonna build my pan head soon but I train myself doing panorama shots hand held as my tripod stays often in the car or at home. In any way when it comes to slow shutterspeed you better use a tripod and even a remote cord when you have to shoot in bulb.

I use a tripod for long exposures, but I usually carry a monopod when I'm just hunting for shots (in case there are no trees around).

I have a small window tripod stashed in my car as well as a hand sized beanbag I made.
That way if I'm out and have forgotten my real tripod I've gotta couple of different options.
The monopod is really cool, cuz you can always use it as a walking stick if necessary.;)

:) yeah a monopod is great. I just bought a manfrotto and it's always with me. I noticed a considerable gain of sharpeness in my photographs and if you take a deep breath you can take quite long exposured shots

i use one almost all the time, it is in my car and ready when i need it. Its goes from real short to tall. Very lightweight too. maybe 3 lbs. It also has a bubble for keeping balance...But i also use the world around me to, sometimes i just cannot use it, the space is either to tight, or not enough. So i make due with surroundings..:)

I forgot to mention, the rubber foot on my mono pod unscrews to fold out 3 short legs. Not as good as a tripod but it gives a little extra stability.
