Just remember, none of these shots show the RAIN and the WIND. Or the ultra expensive price tags on everything.

Armish, you look like you could be my brother, or cousin, or just somewhat similar-looking. 😁 Don't bother asking, I won't do selfies, lol. 😋😉 Welcome aboard the crazy train. 😎

That was actually taken with the equivalent of 100 mm (full frame) lens. There are also some pictures that only work if they are "stolen", while still respecting the dignity of the person. I did not want the person's face in the picture or it would have been there.

I was just gifted a Sony 5N that has this flip/angle LCD screen so you can hold the camera low and look down while snapping such pics from the waist. So much to learn...

Anyways, Selfies?

Two from Lake Minnewanka, Banff AB.

An interesting tidbit to this shot. I am sitting on top of a roadway across the current dam structure. Just to the right of the image are three dots which are marker buoys indicating a diving zone. Just out of frame one can descend there to 70' and find the structure of another dam, built in 1912 complete with pumphouse and walls etc... Beyond are foundations of houses. They built the current dam and flooded the first. A dam within a dam.. damn!

Almost forgot to post this, from about a week ago, in Eastern Colorado. I dunno how it shows up to you folks, but that was a double rainbow, with the second one less visible. 😎

well, this one looks like the photographer hides somewhere to take the picture.
