ravnostic: Ranger Joe: Hey Ravnostic...great shot of the power plant near Telluride. How did you like the switchback road that leads up to it? We're looking to do that road this fall, coming over the mountain and down into Telluride.If the road to which you refer is the one in this picture--we didn't take it. They had oodles of snow this season, which made for the wonderful waterfall shot--but also meant the road up wasn't yet open (even at this resolution, I think you can tell it's loaded with the stuff). Do you happen to know the name of the falls on the left in this image? My Aunt did not.
Ranger Joe: That's Ingram Falls. The road is the Black Bear Pass road, one of the most difficult jeep roads in Colorado. It's a one-way trail from east to west. The easy part is on the way up to Black Bear Pass. The hard part is on the way down, near Ingram Falls. The trail is a set of rocky steps, very narrow, with a slight curve and a serious off-camber angle, which then leads to the very tight switchbacks. You can drive up the switchbacks to the level of the power plant, but beyond that point the trail is one way, down only. The whole trail is usually open sometime in July, but with all the snowpack this year I'll be surprised if it opens at all.
styckx: Never participate in Farktopgrahy contests, but photography has been a hobby of mine for years now. Never share much, but in a mood to share some of my recent "keepers" . These all are just a kit lens on a Canon XS taken locally with post processing. Usually shoot with my 50mm but I enjoy the kit lens in a lot more situations.Enjoy.. Or don't. :)
oddmind: Oh geeze. I did it again. Forgot to enable voting. Can someone please help me?
styckx: Enjoy.. Or don't. :)
Elsinore: Indeed--I got side tracked and forgot to post the congrats in here--mea culpa! Congrats to U-Man for his "umop 3p!sdn" win this past week!
ravnostic: Elsinore: Indeed--I got side tracked and forgot to post the congrats in here--mea culpa! Congrats to U-Man for his "umop 3p!sdn" win this past week!Hope I didn't step on any toes--the contest had closed many hours before; I didn't mean to jump the gun, but given this forum is new and people weren't used to it, I thought maybe it would be okay to acknowledge the win as had been done for me a few weeks ago.

oddmind: Well, I did 66% better than last week. I only forgot to enable voting on my Boobies. May I impose on the mods once again?*Rolls on back and wags tail in an apologetic way.*
ravnostic: Posting here, too, to request removing my 2011-07-06 10:26:35 PM in "Abandoned by people II", please; it's the wrong frame. And thank you.

thespindrifter: Well, for only the second time in 30 years, I'm going to go get close to a shuttle launch (hopefully) tomorrow. The first time was #2 when I was a kid, and now a friend of mine has won tickets to be as close as they will allow... will be leaving within the hour, but I am expecting to be coming back Sunday.Sadly, I will be using a borrowed camera, as both of my Canons are still D.O.A.I hope I can get some great shots from the causeway on Sunday if that's when it gets bumped to, because I'll be letting my wife use "my" ticket, since she has never been up-close to a launch before. We tried to catch the last two, but the rescheduling always wound up landing on one of her work days :/We need a good 'Space' related contest soon.

ravnostic: Yeah, I seem to be in a slump votey-wise myself. Fark happens, and all that. I like them anyways.
Elsinore: Mischief managed ;)
plamadude30k: Any mods hanging around here? It seems my entries from this weeks contest have mysteriously disappeared for no apparent reason. Is there any way to get them back?
