I love the border...would make a great postcard.

Wow, this is such an amazing picture, especially if you focus just on the tree line.

Thanks! I actually shot that with a 2.0 megapixel camera during a trip to Gros Morne National Park with a group of American tourists. It's so interesting to see scenery through others' eyes. As a local, it intensifies the appreciation when you hear great things from visitors.

Kangaroo Island. One of my life goals is to see a kangaroo in person. I'd probably get my ass kicked for getting too close...it would be a pregnant mother, or something.

This was actually taken with a 7.1 megapixel camera, but it's blurry as hell! Funny how that works. I kayaked across a lake last summer by myself to my aunt's cabin...which my family hated me for. I think they thought I'd drown. Anyway, it was such a perfect night, but the picture doesn't really show it:



After I had my fire going, a tiny toad swam up the shore, parked himself in front of me, and kept staring me in the eyes for about an hour. For a while, I thought it could've been a reincarnated dead relative! It felt like he was really trying to tell me something.

I scrambled for my camera, and he/she darted into the brush...but I caught it:



I'm actually really proud of that picture...overly so. Toads are fairly rare here.

Awesome Diemen what settings did shoot this at?

Don't remember. I took those pics almost 2 years ago.

1st one was probably something like 1/30th @ f/8, second maybe 1/2 to 1sec @ f/8, both with a polarizer on. And using a tripod, of course.

You have to go to a wildlife park. There you can feed them and touch them without any risk of getting punched.
I've got a video of a mother where the little one peeked out the pouch.

It's rare that you see toads here, either. I've once seen a rabbit near Alexanderplatz right in the center of Berlin:

Well I think they are beautiful shots! Great work.

Great shot. The west coast is gorgeous. I've only been there once, and only in winter!

I love this thread so much. You all take great pictures! Aren't we lucky to have such a beautiful planet??

These are all from Iceland, the most amazing place I've ever visited.
