The girls on our tour posing on the old wooden bridge at Salzburg. I can't believe how clear that water is and how much of it runs down that river out of Lake Lucerne.



Ceiling decorations in a very old restaurant outside of Vienna.



I gotta send this one into Jay Leno.



Speaking of architecture, the Vatican's St. Peters Basillica is gob smacking. That dome is something like 475 feet high. The large ring around the base of the inside of the dome pictured here has a ballustrade with people behind it walking around up there. You can't make those people out because they are so far away. With the naked eye they are like ants. Then there is another ring of ballustrade way up there in the top of the dome with more people, even with my eyes straining I could not make them out. You just cannot fathom how beautiful this place is, it almost ranks as one of the seven wonders of the world.

Sorry for gushing, I am by no means a Catholic but I can apreciate wonderful works of art and this is one on a monumental scale let alone all the individual pieces of sculpture on display and part of the building. I never thought it would affect me in the way it had until I saw it. I was quite ambivalent about even going there. A trip to Rome is not complete without seeing what the Vatican is about as far as architecture and art goes.

Yeah, I'm about the least religious person I know and I love cathedrals for the architecture and art.

A few from this weekend and pretty much the story of how I spend my summers while the rest of you are sweating it out on rock:

What happened to this thread?

Are you all taking climbing photos? Oh, you're all debating if $200 is enough to sell a photo to madrock!!!

Well here are some more of mine that I took over the last few weeks.

First shot with the new Sigma 10-20mm. Good lens at half the price of the Pentax 12-24 (probably about 95% of the lens optical quality) I unloaded for funds for the 50-135 2.8 weather sealed that was just released.

Weather sealed (body and lens), stabilization, f/2.8 and USM for under $2000 total body and lens!!!! Try that with another brand!! Wink

First time at a cycling race (Tour de Gastown [criterium]) and first time shooting action with my lensbaby... in low light... in the rain... while being attacked by bears. Well, okay, I'm lying a bit: the light wasn't that low.

Haven't really taken anything new for a while, but here's a couple I liked from a few months back. Nothing special, just a trip down to the local reservoir to try and get to know my 100-300 lens a little better.

I especially like this one - it has a very Monet-esque feel to it.



Playing with the manual focus...



Finally, I only noticed this guy when the dragonfly I was tracking suddenly disappeared!

plus a couple of others I don't have online at the moment. So, what do y'all think?

Well after a busy month...lots of paddling including a 10 day wilderness canoe traverse in the Adirondacks and even a bit of rock climbing, here are a few of my favs



















Use your imagination on the last one, but the setting is a remote lake with lots of clothes on a boat...

Yeah I have been chasing a decent lightning pic for years and managed to score this one at last.



Then I had to redo a pic that I failed on last time I was down at the Ashford Caves.



And whilst I was in the area I had to do a bit of bouldering in Macintyre Gorge.



All pics taken in Northern New South Wales, Oz.

Go check out the lightning group on flickr, you will be blown away with how great those shots are. Makes mine look like it was taken by an amateur which of course I am but that is beside the point. They also have an excellent discussion on that group letting people know how to take better lightning pics.

Meet The Mutts.

What should have been a grea baseball day turned into 9 innings of watching the last placed Marlins beat the Mets into a bloody pulp (who were fighting for a playoff spot on the last day of the season after being in 1st place all year).

Not being a Mets fan I can tell you that it was painful to watch, imagine the opposing pitcher seeing your rightfielder dogging his double down the line, he sees this and legs out a legit triple. Basically that, and the fact that Glavine hit the pitcher to walk in a run in the first inning while giving up 7 runs pretty well covers the game.

Those are some nice shots BlondGecko.. What lens did you use for the wide-landscape photo? Or did you use stitch assist?

All my panoramic shots are put together using The Panorama Factory - cool software. This one, for instance, is stitched from five shots taken with a pretty crappy old Olympus 3.2 MP point-and-shoot.

If I could be the first to say that I think three of you are trying drag enough bandwidth into this thread to run the whole site. Good enough, find the spider.

Find the hiding swimmers.

sorry

uhhh and the the only thing I have to show from hours of chasing birds and dragonfly's

I could only spot 1 other swimmer (under the waterfall). I think some more might be behind the waterfall.

I recently got all Ansel Adams like and did some B&W conversions.

Jeez Pico, it looks like your down on the ice with them. Nice timing on these action shots.

Here's one I took of a shy pirate at my favorite tree. Three external flashes triggered by PocketWizards. Canon XTI, Canon 24-105.
