A Beautiful sunset

Last night we had a beautiful sunset over the Chao Phraya River. You can just make out the silhouette of The Peninsula hotel on the left. On the right are the tent-like lights of Sala Rim Nam.

Lovely Photos.

I do love photography but rarely get chance to take any these days. My favourite recent(ish) photo's are from a holiday in Iceland.

These are back when I had my craptastic camera, before my DSLR. The first is over the lacrosse field at Johns Hopkins, the night after Hurricane Isabel went up the coast. The second was a random pic I took from my porch after a thunderstorm.

Sunsets and sunrises are probably my favorite photography subject!
I must have hundreds of them!

Here are a few I had handy!










In this one you can see a bat flying:





Hope you enjoy them!
There are all taken over mountains around my home town Kavala, in Northeast Greece!

Thanks, but the quality of the pics themselves are nothing compared to anything I've taken over the last year (when I finally bought a real camera).

These aren't sunsets, but you get the idea:









Ok, I'm done whoring random photos now.

We should start a general photography thread and just post up our favorite pictures.

My current weapon of choice is a Nikon D70s, but I'd love to trade up for a D80.

It actually had a problem 1 day before the year warranty ran out and is currently back at Nikon getting fixed...maybe I can convince them to keep it and sell me the D80 for the diff in price!
