Post Up Your Scenic Shots Here...

Let's fill this thread with our random scenic shots we have from our various outdoor adventures. No vehicles, just beautiful or interesting landscapes. Do you have any scenic pictures from one of your outings but feel it doesn't deserves its own trip report? Post up here with a brief description.

...The OAUSA Scenic Picture Thread!...


Today I took a short hike out into the Cleveland National Forest. I wanted to check out Roberts Ranch Meadow. Saw llamas and cattle.

Most of what I shoot is ocean related with a little travel mixed in.

As Stated, I like to shoot at Catalina. Enclosed are a few I like and some are not landscape, but are special to me. I have been going to Arlington National Cem since the 60's and the Tomb still impresses me, chokes me up and brings a tear to my eye. When leaving the country going east, I like to stop in DC to visit relatives and certain special places.
Regards, Steve
PS-Sean, I enjoyed your pics.

Thanks. It used to be a full-time gig for me but I had to close the studio a few years ago. While it was necessary, I've regretted it ever since. Here's a few more I just dug up from some travel.

This is a very famous street in Brussels. I've forgotten its name but it contains all the seafood restaurants. The maitre d's stand out in front of their restaurants and yell at you with the hopes you'll come in. They are willing to deal quite a bit and I watched some people work out some amazing dinners.

Image

These next two are from Germany. I was there working for a few weeks in the small village of Kempen which is just south of Dusseldorf. The first image is a summer storm that came rolling in and put on one of the best lightning shows I had seen in a long time.

Image

This image is of the Koln Dom. One of the guys I was working with decided to drive me over there for dinner one night. With Autobahn speeds, it didn't take very long and I was very appreciative. We got there too late in the day to go inside but the outside is mind blowing. The building is so huge that it doesn't look real. Then when you think about the history of its construction, it's just mind boggling.

Image

These last two images are from another work trip that had me in Melbourne for a few weeks. I put a few thousand clicks on the rental car while I was there just driving around. It's a beautiful country. Both of the images are from a drive I took down to a rain forest preserve a few hours south of Melbourne. The old car I spotted just off the road in the woods as I was driving through the mountains. The dead tree is from the hike in the rain forest that was on a suspended cat walk.

Image

Image

I don't want to tie up the thread with a bunch of outside links but I do have full galleries of a lot of these places. If you have some down time and you're interested in clicking through some photos, drop me a pm and I'll send you the links.

Camped this weekend off Sunrise Highway with some friends. On the way home, they decided to jump off the top of a perfectly good mountain.

The weather was absolutely epic out there this weekend. It was so nice to see actual blue sky and the sun. :D
