Oh, absolutely. Like I've said before, this is a hobby. For my own enjoyment. If others enjoy it too, that's a bonus. laugh.gif So, by all means, play away. I'm actually quite flattered.

This shot was taken from our road trip around the Alberta Rockies. We found this place just east of Jasper. Not far from the Park boundary. The entire clump of hills here are sand deposits mounted high up on rock outcroppings. Sort of like sand dunes that don't move. It feels like walking on the beach in the middle of a mountain delta.

(I thought I'd posted these later ones, but I guess not)

This shot was taken from our road trip around the Alberta Rockies. Moraine Lake is 25 minutes away from Lake Louise. You drive up the side of a mountain, and down into a pass. For you Canadians about 20 and older, you'll notice this from the back of the old $20.

Yes, you already posted the last ones (I can't remember where rolleyes.gif ), but they are so beautiful, it's a pleasure to see them again smile.gif

Thanks. I thought I had, just can't find out where. They probably got eaten when this place was revamped. laugh.gif That's alright though. I'm sure it helps that I shrunk all the images this time around. Some of those things were 500kb, and now are around 80.

Gosh! OR! You make me want to move to Canada! Those photos are so awesomely beautiful. I know this is just a hobby for you, but don't they have a magazine there called Canada Highways? We have one here called Arizona Highways that have photos no better than yours!

Aren't you just overflowing with encouragement. biggrin.gif Thanks Rose.

Here's another repost, since it got eaten too.

The Sisters

Well, not really sisters. Just one. Ivy, who is my real sister, is the one in the middle, Angela, my wife, is on the end, and Buffy, my beloved pup, is .... well, that's pretty obvious.

We were waiting for about 45 minutes for the sun to go down behind the hills that encompas the Bras D'or lake in Cape Breton, a peninsula off the tip of New Scotland, my home. It used to be an island, until they put the causway in. The point was to wait until that time where the red sun lights up the bottom of the clouds, and reflect over the lake and give a dark silouette of the hills. I look to my right, and this is what I see. Before they had a chance to even notice what I was doing, I prepped the shot and took it. I think it came out better than the one we were waiting for.

On a side note, it's amazing how many people will stop to talk, or point out something interesting you should take a picture of, when you have a tripod.

Thief In The Night

I found this on the road entering an old abandoned pig farm in rural Alberta. A wheasle must have taken the egg and had a feast. Damn thieves.

Thank you so much, Cori, and Anne (sorry I didn't see this one right away Anham sad.gif ). We spent the better part of the day just walking around the woods by this lake. There were brooks and streams everywhere, and moss covered stones. You can rent a canoe there as well. I wish we had time for that, but we also had the dog with us, and that's just not an option. laugh.gif
