Awesome shot! And the moon is nicely done, no problem with a little photoshop when it's as beautiful as that. Can't wait to see more of your shots.

And welcome back or, since you had such a good time, maybe I should offer you my condolences for you having to come home after visiting such beautiful and exotic locations.

Great shot, another angle than the one I normally see around the net.
Only I don't think the moon adds to the picture

So glad you had a great time there, and even more that you are safely home. Will look forward to many more amazing photos from your trip!

Hariett - Thanks. Be it ever so humble..............We're glad to be home. After a 30+ hour door to door trip our own bed felt soooooooooo good.

Big Dawg - Thanks for your warm welcome home.

Ronny - Good to see you back on the forum. I missed your great macro shots.

The moon was only slightly off to the right but far enough that I could not get the two together. The nice thing with Photoshop is you can take it or leave it as you like.

Mole - Safely is the operative word as we did some things that were over the top for us like a Jet boat ride down the rapids of the Shotover River in Queenstown, NZ.

Over the top is right - they came awfully close to some nearly submerged rocks in that film!

Penolta, they came to close to the rock walls all through the canyon. The least scary part was the 360 degree turns as the driver warned us in advance with a hand signal and you were somewhat prepared.

This ride was not for the faint of heart. Four or five people on our boat had to be returned to the dock and got off sick. I was on an outside seat and at one point looked over at my wife and saw the shocked look on her face, she was a good sport and finished the ride.

G'day Lou
i am glad you had a great time (not sure about the jetboat thing, no bungy jumping??)
dja get a hang of the lingo?
you have gotten to see things i havent seen, that photo shows off the opera house magnificently and i am looking forward to seeing more
i know how daunting the task ahead is, i took 3000 shots in the 2 weeks i was in the USA and it took months to go through them all
