I know, but I'm not sorry to ride the trainer when I see something this:
Be sure to watch at 50 seconds into the vid. We rode in winds like that at IM Hawaii in 2001. It was the most frightened I've ever been on a bike.
Ryan, nice picture of the Volvo, brings back memories of my first car, a P544 with the B18 engine. Just like what looks like a P545 in your photo except mine had the split windshield. Nice car, I was 18 it was red, tuned exhaust. They were really neat cars. Good job. Joe
Jorgen: +1! Those first two are great "finds". Surprising how much the "yellow shoes" pop out after you read the caption. The softer tone in this last one and the PJ quality are very cool.
1. "Bear food". This is late May. In the summer, it's higher then the bears and you're not allowed in to the estuary. Probably don't want you to become bear food.
2. Not a good idea to go wandering in to the rain forest, either.
3. Hard to find a bear without a mouthful of marsh grass

The only mammals I found here had the bare essentials.
Some wild. But could be tamed.
Rayyan: Nope didn't move? Looks like a pretty dangerous place. Was your guide armed?

Matt, the Shear Girth & Mass Of That Guy Is Astounding! Excellent!
Matt, means you barely left your place then.Originally Posted by m_driscoll;303434
Some were armed to kill!!
Folks, take care the three of you. And thank you from me and them.
That's one of the best Matt.
Thought of a story: of Rayyan and the bear..
as told by Kildaire..who just happened to be there
Across the mountains, across the rivers
where he had heard about the lair..of Matt's bear
Hark..Ayesha calls. ****, it is to the salon for her hair
Well then, some other time. The story of Matt's bear..
I shall share.
Some straw, bamboo, glass, water, light. Mix it with love..
Hermann/Steve/Rayyan: Thank you, gentlemen!
A few more bears. I'm having fun. I think that I'm getting the pp better (thanks Tim for the tip)

fantastic bear shots again, I think he's your pet now.
Only black bears found where this image is from GSMNP Processed with Topaz Adjust 4

Some very nice elements of composition, light, and focus in the second photo. I can esp. appreciate this one because I've taken many, many, photographs of my glass of ice water (late at night, testing lenses, cameras, auto focus, manual focus, settings, IQ, and so on)
Best regards - Hermann
Hermann, I know it's on the edge. I was going for more a dark chalk drawing look here. It's an image I took last year.
I was also using a new tool. So, testing it out.
Matt, you need to get him a hair brush so he can prep for shots. They are such beautiful bears.
Matt, Hermann, Steve; A big thank you.
Matt, The 1st and 2nd are to grizzly. Luv the middle one. Cuddly.
Unless they are the same. In which case all 3.
Speaking Of Bikes...
D700, 300VR 2.8
Steve, #1 and #2 is my kind of sedate photography.
The entire set, taken as a whole, is
Extreme sports...the one that should have a PG rating.
Anything carried to excess can be disturbiing. To say the least.
