@Ragman,
Do you think this one qualifies? Taken in May during our National Parks and Canyons tour.

@cicerone imposter,
This one was taken in Turkey last year. I think it belongs as one of the best nature photographs.

@djjd62,
A few of us were at Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side, and decided to take a taxi to Zambia so we could get our passports stamped with the Zambia custom's stamp. It was awesome, because the water spray was tremendous on the Zambia side, and we all got wet.

A young couple from Boston took those flying kites and shared their pictures with us after we returned from the trip. I'll post them later.

I'll also post some pictures from Igassu Falls I think you'll enjoy.

Hello, Strauss.
A pleasure to cross your A2K path! Smile

@msolga,
That Werrikimbe National Park photo has a lovely almost mythical quality to it. Lovely photo indeed. Thanks for sharing! Very Happy

Now this photo would make a great jumping point to a spectacular animated kangaroo adventure film! Make it happen MsOgla!
