If I have really good photos, I often upload them to this company
http://www.memoriesonlinen.co.uk/home.php

who will print them onto canvas in a wooden frame - very quick turn round and excellent quality.

Heres another of my favourites from Norway....

Great pics guys!

Here is one I took some years ago.
It's a square in the Old Town in Rhodes island (Greece):



The following 2 are macro photographs of two grasshoppers!
These are very tiny, they measure less than 1.5cm long!
(In the photos you can actually see the metal particles of my previous car's paint job!)

This photo is too ugly for a German Woolly. The wood has not equal length I´ve heard from an island in the pacific: Around 1900 some Germans landed there under the flag of the German emperor Wilhelm II and felled all palm trees to plant new standing in a row.

Great pics guys..

Talk about twisites. This one will get you dizzy quick.



This looks like a fun road, looks similar to some roads here in Colorado.



The macro shots are great, thanks for sharing SiLK.

Maybe this pic isn't specifically from the US, but this is a familiar site in Clark County, Nevada.

I am looking at getting a new DSLR. Was thinking about the Nikon D80 with an 18-55 or 18-135 lens. Are "macro" shots like this possible with the gear I am thinking about? I know we have some great photogs on the site so thought I would ask. Thanks.

I don't believe those lens are capable of such macro pics. You will need a new lens.

The mist in the photo from Norway makes it look like a watercolor painting. Very cool.
