    Some pretty spectacular work here, my friend. You've been busy.

    The pano is probably my favorite, followed by #7, followed by everything else. All are really great. Congrats!

    Really superb stuff, Taz. I lean toward the shots featuring the Milky Way.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    These are beautifully done, Taz. It helps to have good subject matter but you know what to do with it.

    Oh My! Stunning is what I'd call these shots. I would also use the word masterful.

    Wow Taz, ever since I saw your "Fog Mafog" pictures, I was waiting for new material from you. It was worth the wait, goddamnit.

    All of those are superb, and I cannot find any words but praise for these. But! Yes there's a but: Number 4 literally blew me away and number10 literally soaked me in. I tip my virtual hat - thanks for sharing this incredible work. I think you should get those published in some large scale magazine like NatGeo or so... really :smiley:

    Great set, Taz!
    Each image has something special for the viewer.

    The arches in the Alabama Hills are very interesting features, and your shots of them with the Milky Way are outstanding.

    I loved image 4 with the FJ and the moon and sun beams too. What is that on the front of your FJ?

    You've spent a fair amount of time in the hills I see. Great work!

    Thanks kindly Jim! The FJ was just passing through and decided to use it........not mine but its cool car!

    There are other arches there, but I couldn't find all of them.....it is so hot during the day, over 100 degrees that difficult to stay out for long....

    Cheers!!

    I would come home from the trip happy if I had shot any one of these photos. Are these all in one place? I would love to know the location - I think a long drive may be in my future!
