Re: Fantastic!!

Thanks Luciano - this one is actually from this year's visit to Peru - we can't seem to stay away from the place.

howie mate...

...this is a *ridiculously* good shot. What kind of camera do you use? My exelim-2750 has been bashed to pieces from being carried up routes in my pocket, so time to get a new digital... G

Re: howie mate...

Thank you very much Goldie! This picture was shot with a Canon Rebel Xti (10 MP) and a 80-300 lens. I've been really happy with it so far - very much recommended!
Thanks again,
