    Thought I'd post up some of the photos I've collected on the web...some are obviously Photoshopped, some not. I'm just tired of reading text.

    Just to be in keeping with the website's theme,
    I think G L Pease's pipe photos are top notch.

    Actually, that is not a moose. I just checked and there are no moose in the Grand Canyon.

    I think it might be an Elk. I'm not 100% sure.

    Well, if it was neither a Moose nor Elk, it might have been a Freemason.

    Good observation Kevin -- it caught me napping.
    It's interesting that explosives, radioactives, flammables and other hazardous materials are merely restricted;
    yet camera use? Oh me, no. Absolutely prohibited! (And if you don't have your E-ZPass available, their cameras will start clicking.)

    This is one of mine.
    It was taken from the Aiguile du Midi (12,602ft) looking at Mont Blanc just before I skied the The Grand Envers, Vallee Blanche down to Chamonix.

    But we could all be misunderstanding the whole photograph's meaning. What if there was a caption there that said "SHHHHHHHH, that chicken is getting closer, don't frighten my dinner away". Not to mock the less fortunate.... but isn't that what photographs are all about. It's meaning to the person that see's it. There is beauty in even the most savage of images if you but look for it.
