The only thing better then the good photos is the story behind the photos. Great job.
Definitely a fantastic capture; what a wonderful expression. Thanks for allowing us the joy of seeing this lion's face.
Talk about a Highway Robbery.
Nice shot. I don't care how "long" your lens was, you were still too close to that bad boy. LOL.
What a great capture! Well worth what I suspect are your frozen hands and feet. Very nicely done.
That just made my morning.....
This is a great capture. Perfect lighting, wonderful sky, outstanding scenery and excellent composition. Well done.
This, without a doubt is a Mohawk, OV-1, one of the ugliest airplanes the US ever sent into the air. Twin crew, three rudders, it was used for photo-recon. Yes, it was an Army airplane (not Air Force). The crew weapons consisted of either a .38 revolver or .45 semi auto pistol worn in shoulder holsters. The airplane did receive some offensive weapons towards the end of that war. There were about 370 of them in Vietnam. Today, these airplanes serve no purpose as unmanned drones are better and safer at taking pictures.
You got these great shots using the sony kit 28-70 lens? Wow. I think I need to check that lens out for myself. Good job.
A really great shot. In aviation, it would be called a "perfect flair," nose high with the gear kissing the ground. You captured it perfectly.
Just a wonderful photo. Can't help but smile.
I had not heard of Gallipoli until I attended the Australia dedication of their Vietnam Memorial in Canberra. Just unbelievable.....page after page of casualties. What bravery and sacrifice. Sadly, I suppose this is what happens when civilians plan an invasion against the advise and opinions of professionals.
Great shot. With a bowler hat and cigar he could be renamed Winston. Really, a wow shot.
