    Nice set Eric - that first one gave me a chuckle as well, nicely observed!

    The final PP on that ferry shot worked out really well - stunning HDR type shot

    Not sure if I've seen the mountain shot before - majestic :)

    Thanks! Yeah the mountain is Denali (Mt. McKinley). I honestly can't stand trying to look at it on the screen though, since the details are too small to make out on any monitor I own. This wasn't the final version I printed, just a version I could easily downsize for web viewing.

    Beautiful shots Eric! "Tranquility" is an amazing pic...almost looks like two photos stitched together. Keep 'em coming!

    The "Irony" shot reminded me of my time on "the Big Island"...this photo was taken with a budget point'n'shoot, but you get the idea. I'm the scrawny guy on the left.

    ... Is that the same sign???

    It sure is...at least that's what I assumed when I saw Eric's photo. Here's the better half on the same lava field. The landscape on the "Big Island" of Hawaii is in a state of perpetual change...the island grows at an average of 0.02 km2 per year. The geological history of the Hawaiin Islands is intoxicating to me...I WILL RETURN.

    Blimey that really gives a sence of scale to te chunks!
    I'd love to go... It's a bit far from here though!

    Darren,
    Finally saw this question. Probably doesn't matter any more but the trip to the summit of Cathedral was an 8 day trip. We climbed Cathedral on our second day.

    The Chinese wall photo was on a 6 day trip with the photo taken on day 4.

    The other two photos (Sinopah at Sunrise and the stars) were taken only a short walk from our campsite in an auto camp in Glacier National Park.

    I just went back through this entire thread. Many photos are no longer visible but from those that remain, I can definitely say we have a pretty darn good group here. Kudos to all of you.
