Kjell - my other half was using the K100 - he took the picture of Patton's statue and the black and white wood texture picture. I did the conversion, he's not at all interested in post processing what he takes. I thought the color version didn't do justice to the wood.

These were taken in Southern California. The first three were sunrise pictures in Indio, where we were staying. The next 3 were taken at the top of the Palm Springs Tramway - the top is over 8,000 feet elevation while the desert around Palm Springs is around 1,000 (the road to the lower station is fairly steep - it is located at 2,643 feet (806m) and the upper station is at 8,516 feet (1,791m) above sea level. There's nothing gradual to the mountains - you only get a vague idea of them from the balloon picture. The last 3 were taken at the Patton Memorial Museum, which is located at Chiriaco Summit, near where one of Patton's army camps was located. Unlike the tramway, this "summit" isn't much of one, just a higher spot in the desert. Patton trained his 3rd Corps all over the Mojave Desert before going to Europe in WWII.

Harriet, the first 3 really stand out, but all of them are good. The color in the first is super. As I've told you before, you've gotgood eye.
