    They might look like bad quality, or maybe that is natural camo working?

    Also, I love bamboo.

    from last saturday night while in japan, waiting for cars to enter the UDX Buliding Parking, spotted a whole bunch of cars lined up a couple of streets down.

    has to be my favorite part of Japan. Just sitting around and having random, fantastic car sightings.

    [​IMG] taken off my GoPro cruising on my CBR1000RR. I think I took this during my monster 1518km (in one day) ride. In Alberta somewhere between Banff and Jasper.

    [​IMG] Mt St Helens from the backside. Those are some seriously fun roads. And yes, I tour a lot on my crotchrocket :)


    [​IMG] Green Sand Beach, Big Island Hawaii. I have this blown up huge and framed. Was a very neat beach and is on google map pics of this area. I took 9000 photo's while in Hawaii...lol

    I have a Nikon D7000 with various lenses but take most of my pics on my cell. I just got a Samsung S6 and it takes quite nice shots! The S4 was pretty good too when it was new. I really only take the 7000 out when traveling or special occasions. I think I may sell it soon and get a 7200...or a full frame. But the 7200 seems quite nice.

    That was a beautiful area! Def one of the highlights. We drive our jeep there and it was one of the places that inspired me to get my Olympus OMD1. Nice shot!

    Yes, that was one of my favourite days there, minus the awesome snorkel day. We were near the volcano and were hitting this beach on the way back. I also had a Jeep and had the top down. But my dad's TomTom GPS took us on this crazy road from the south...was crazy offloading on this little goat trail for just over an hour until finally arriving here just before dusk. There were sections that were even more hard core than the shorter way coming from north of the beach. I loved Hawaii...put 750miles on the Jeep I rented in 10 days!

    Here's one more shot from the beach where we were staying. Thi bright pink light is from Kona, and this was about a 30 sec exposure. I think it was around midnight when I took this.

    Nice! That looks like a Marsh Wren (or a Sedge Wren.. hard to tell), wrens are one of my favorite birds :)

    I like how your wildlife pictures follow the rule of thirds, instead of just being centered (like mine :p).

    Did a scramble up Mount Roche Perdrix a little while ago. Took a late sunrise picture of Boule Roche. Beautiful views!
