    This dog scared the heck out of me. I was quietly taking a landscape picture when all of a sudden I hear this deep breathing behind me, this area has lots of bears and I had thought one had snuck up me, luckly, just prior I had gone to the mens room.:pale:

    What a beautiful sunset picture. You seem to be mastering the 20D?

    The first photo definitely was worth the fright - and it is so sharp ... you don't seem to be still shacking! ;)

    And Shan: interesting comment.
    All I see on my screen are little squares... ;)

    Great shot... I too find it tricky to compose a shot with the clear sun actually in the frame.


    P.S - Yikes! Given the fact that I've seen people attacked by dogs more than once, and every bear I've seen has run away from people... I thiink I'd rather the bear too!

    Thank you everyone :)

    Shan, I metered close to the sun and used a polarising filter.

    Canoncan, not even close to mastering. I use only the manual mode, spot metering and the different shooting modes. It is a joy to use the manual modes on the 20d.

    Rob116 it is a little difficult, I think the trick is too focus the eye on the bottom corners of the viewfinder.

    I don't mind bears at all, I just thought that if one got this close to a human, thats a real sign of trouble.
    I have some bear pic's where I got fairly close I may post, but the picture quality due to the lighting is not very good, I had to overexpose the bear to get some detail in the black fur.

    The first photo in this set deserves to be on a wall. That is beautiful.
