    Here's a few more of my new shots, from various locations.

    I have a funny story too, well maybe not funny.

    A few minutes after taking that first photo, I was down the path a bit further, and near the edge, about 30 feet above the river, and taking some shots when my CF card filled up. I opened the door and pressed the little eject button to remove it. I must have pressed the button too hard, being in a hurry, and the card shot out of the camera like a bullet. I just barely got my hand on it and deflected it out over the edge of the cliff and down into the river :(

    I searched for 10 minutes, leaning over the edge, and I finally spotted it. It took me about 30 minutes, with my pants rolled up, wading down the river to find the card, but I did, and after a full 24 hours of drying out, it worked! I got the images off of it! It was under 3 feet of water for over a half hour. Murky river water. I can't believe it. So, be careful when you remove your CF cards from now on!

    Shot #2 there is from when I got down off of the path and started to walk up the river. I had put another card in to take more photos. Man, it was cold!

    Great pics, all. :thumbsup:

    :shock: What a story! I bet your toes were frozen wading into that murky water. I cant believe you were able to get the pics off the card!

    Shazaam Matt! Those first two are just killers. Wallhangers for sure! :thumbsup:

    Great save of the card. Truly would have been a crime to lose that first shot. :)

    Thanks guys :)

    Blutiful, yes, my toes were frozen :p My feet were numb by the time I got outta there. It was worth it though :)

    Daniel, I don't know what to say about landscape photography other than, get out there and do it. I hike a lot and a long way sometimes to get to these places. Get a graduated neutral density filter, and well that's about it. The rest is photography basics. Composition, exposure. I always bracket, so if I need to I can combine two frames in phototshop to get more dynamic range. That second shot in particular is a combination of two shots, one metered for the rocks, and one for the rest of the scene.

    Thanks Jim :)

    Thanks Pilgrim :)

    Doesn't anyone like the last two? :p

    I never can hit my exposures just right. You just reminded me that I was going to hit a trail today, but now it's too late. Nice shots.

    Great shots Matt. I like the third one the best, but they all are great shots. I wish fall lasted a while here in the Anchorage bowl, instead of a few days.

    Thanks Geronimo and Nagala :)

    Geronimo, I hear ya. Fall has lasted a bit longer here, but it is going fast, and I haven't had as much time as I'd like to go out and photograph it.

    Here's a couple more that I finished today.

    Those are awesome, it's a terrific display of visual harmony with color

    In addition to there being neat texture.

    I dunno much about composition but those feel pretty balancy to me. Cozy
