I've been wanting to try my hand at these, but it seems like I just never get around to doing anything about submitting something. This time, since I can go back into past photos, I thought I'd submit some.

This first one is a covered bridge, the only one I know about. It's locatedat Wawona in Yosemite National Park. It's not exactly your typical view, taken with a Pentax K100D.

This one isn't very good, but I thought it was unusual. It's a picture I took several years ago with a Sony F717 on a very cloudy day. I've tried several times to brighten it up, but every time I do the ice becomes a white blob. I finally gave up. Taken in Zion National Park on a very cold November day.

Both shots are nicely done. I like the second since I visited Zion and Bryce Canyon a few years ago. Southern Utah is God's Country. Some of the most spectacular landscapes and rock formations in the world can be found there, both in the parks and outside.

Thanks - I love the whole southern Utah area, I could easily spend months traveling through the area. I'm sorry now that I didn't wait until I got home to post these - I resized them using Office Photo Manager (the onlyphoto graphics program on that computer)and now that I'm home, I can see how poorly the program does at this. I'd try to find the originals but I took some others this afternoon that also fall into this topic and will spend some time taking a look at them.

I love both shots. The water flowingvertically and the rocks layered horizontally is a great effect.

These are both great. I can't decide which I like better. Very nicely done.
