  • Photo Project: Your Part of the World

    This will be a community thread for everyone to post pictures in, so feel free to participate regardless of your level of experience.

    I find it really interesting to see the differences in landscapes, architecture, flora, fauna and whatnot from around the world.

    Please post your photos with the location where the photo was taken (this can be general; State or Province, etc. is sufficient) and a brief description (the subject in the photo, and when it was taken, etc.).

    Have fun, and happy shooting!

    Here's a shot I took on a nature hike last weekend. It's autumn here (in QC, Canada) and these birch trees are just starting to change color.








    I took this one while wading out into the river to try to get a picture of a heron on the opposite bank. The little bugger took off before I was close enough to get a decent shot of him, but I took the opportunity to snap a picture of the changing foliage behind the dam:

      I would post Morea... but for some reason sand and rocks aren't that interesting to me!

      I miss Florida and the east coast in general.

        post 'em anyway. I bet they are interesting to people who don't have sand and rocks where they live (and have to walk to work, uphill both ways all year round)

        Here's another shot - I am not sure what kind of plant this is, but the ladybug seemed to like it.

          Downtown Phoenix, looking west.


          this is a church up in Sedona, AZ that is built into the mountain. there is a 5 year waiting list to get married here.


          and of course, everyone im sure has seen a photo of this at some point in there life. one of the seven wonders of the world, and only a 3 hour drive from my house. this chick was crazy, wouldn't catch me on a ledge, its windy and hundreds of people fall and die each year.

              ohhh poo-ey! I just realized I deleted all the pics I took on my trip from Florida to Nevada ... they should have been in my photography folder

              ok. let me find some interesting sand and rocks or dried up landscape nearby and I will post that

              (digging out the digital camera and hoping the batteries are ok)

                I'll have to find a nice spot to take a picture of overlapping highways and bumper-to-bumper traffic...

                  D-Frag ... I loved areas along I-40 traveling through Arizona ... the old Indian caves you can see from the highway and the deserted homesteads... I would like to spend several days exploring those areas sometime.

                        Here's a shot from Mt. Orford (QC) taken Saturday:






                        Here's one I took yesterday of some mushrooms growing beside a nearby lake. I have tentatively identified them as "coprinus comatus" mushrooms.
