Nice photos there Ryan - what model camera are you using?

Here are a couple I took when I last went to the towers taken on my K800i mobile phone:

Image
Oblivion: Had to time this perfectly as anyone with a mobile phone camera will know the picture is taken about 2 seconds after you press the button!
Image
Nemmy: A little editing done on this one.

Image
River Rapids taken towards the end of the day hence the lack of riders.
Image
Thanks to Adzy for the sig & av.

I have 2 cameras, my main one is a Sony Alpha A100 Digital SLR with 18-70 & 70-300 lenses (nice closeup shots !!). Lovely camera. I am looking to get a new lens which I will mainly be using for wildlife photography, and this will allow me to go from 500-1000 for extreme close ups !!!

My backup camera is a Kodak Z650 and is a very useful camera to have and easily fits in a pocket.

hmm, the alpha takes some nice shots.

Sadly I am a canon 400 guy lolol, I diddnt take mine this year cos I worried it would get pinched when i went on rides, wil have to next year tho! - Good luck with that zoom lens.

Some great pics there Colossus. Especially like the Air at night one! :D

And rawandpeace, some nice photos there especially for a camera phone. Liking the rapids one, shame about the somewhat garish yellow boats! :P

:D
