    Hallo Jack Lumber!
    Welcome to ThePhotoForum :D.

    That middle photo here, in your second post, is really nice. I like that one a lot.
    The sky is a bit blown in the first (overexposed, too bright), but both sky AND its reflection in the water in that middle one (third pic of all to be seen here) is really good.

    And the fourth makes me laugh.
    How come this animal came up SOOOOO close!?!??! It must have had something to do with food. It must ... else I wouldn't know. Cool.

    You have some lovely scenery around you where you are!!!

    Welcome to TPF, "Jack". Lovely pictures. My fave is the one in your second post...the mirror reflection of those awesome clouds is breathtaking. And the view from post 1 is stunning. I look forward to seeing more of your pictures.

    Heloo Lafoto, a welcome from the mod,,I'm honored!
    Yes the mountain tops are a little blown out, but the good thing is I only live 4hrs from there, so I can try again,and again ,,,
    The bighorn sheep were quite friendly,they came up to me! I'm sure they have been fed,highly illegal,and personally, I feel it strips them of there dignity.

    Greetings and salutations Antarctan from a cold and windy Calgary, I think the mirror reflection has a painted feel.
    It is one of the first shots I have taken with the sigma
    10-20,so I must solicit your opine as to whether or not I have a sharp copy?

    I have to get a wide angle i think... great shot! Perfectly calm water but mirroring a turbulent looking sky.
    Closeup of the sheep is cool too, i like how you can see his eye colour so vividly. (funny looking sheep tho, i would have thought it was a goat ;))

    Hmmm,,yes I can see the sheep look somewhat like a domestic goat.
    However if you do a google image search "mountain goat" you can see there is no similarity.
