Looks like Peru. That's a beautiful shot.

Too bad this has to be photography. I had a great image I created last week for an advertisement that would have been fun to submit. It's the background image here:

Anyway, I'll have to dig through some old pictures and see what I can come up with. I don't think I'll be able to find any to rival Flavah's yet.

I'm also surprised you had never seen a picture of even heard about Machu Picchu musik, it's considered one of the forgotten ancient wonders of the world!

There was a time when I knew a good bit about Incan history. I always enjoy seeing shots from the Incan Trail. I'd be willing to bet that you have quite a few more good ones from that trip.

Nice Autumnal colours seventh. I think my favourite out of the four is the first, portrait, one.

Nice shot Bigwebmaster; the light's doing nice things across the lower mountains.

Which of the four images you are currently displaying in the topic is your entry? :D

The ones that are not your entry, I will make text links, so they are not displayed in the topic, so as not to confuse people.

Thanks

heehee...I suspect it helps somewhat that Bigweb also flies airplanes. It is actually, one of the best shot's I've seen of Rainier.

:shock: Amazing photos you all! I have got to get me a new camera so I can get in on these contests. The scenery around here is breath taking! :D

The first couple on this site show ya what I've "got to work with". They were taken just about 3 miles from my house.
