Must be trying to aviod those irritating Canadian taxes.

I also enjoy seeing where people on the forum are located.

I'm not really avoiding anything by living in NY state though, we are the worst taxed in the US.

"Cross roads of the world", at least when aircraft had shorter cruising ranges. Gander, Newfoundland, Canada. Biggest claim to fame is that it was a major refuelling stop for military aircraftbeing ferriedto Europe during World War II. Still a major stop for executive jets and freight haulers. Pretty busy space on September 11th 2001.

And, OK, here is a picture of me not hiding behind a camera (taken by my wife with a Fuji S7000)



And here is a map to help you find the place:

Ira-

That is a very distinguished looking photo. Your wife did a great job. Yes, as a retired airline captain and militray pilot, I have made many refueling stops in Gander.

I've always had "Frazier Park, California" in my profile - not that it would help most people locate me. I'm amazed at how many people at work don't have any idea where it is.

While I live near Frazier Park (at close to 6,000 feet elevation), I work in west Los Angeles, so on any day I have a wide variety of subject matter/terrain to shoot. I might not see the Pacific Ocean very often, I work where there's ocean breezes and go home to high country pine covered ridges at night. The only downside is that the commute is long at the best of time, but add in a brush fire like last night and it becomes a 3 hour (or more) ordeal.

That's exactly the way I feel, and it is an incredible pleasure to be able to travel far beyond our little town, which is 50 miles north of Denver, CO, to all the places you people photograph! Thank you for your wonderful images and for your helpful tips.

Regards, Lawrence

Loveland, Colorado, USA
