shot with a sony h2 and an extended zoom lens, so 18x magnification. actually a nice (little) camera. little control over white balance. the colors are real. the zoom does distort the perspective, and perhaps over saturates, so in that regards it is not what i actually saw. i am new to this site and unfamiliar with its workings. i also bring a old nikon film camera on my trips. i will upload a photo from that camera for comparisons, it is on my profile photos. thanks for the comments. john wartman

The winner of the December photo contest is hikesk8sno! A great bunch of pictures. Thanks everyone for sharing.

The trip report contest winner is papszoo!

The extra hat goes to freeleo1!

01/16/2010 10:21AM
great pics, hikesk8sno's pic is amazing as the winners always are here.


would be hard to believe these wonderful photos were real if a person didn't know just how beautiful the bwca is.
01/22/2010 11:31AM
I'm guessing we won in a random drawing from all entries. I know it wasn't in the same league with all the wonderful pictures entered. I just thought it was a neat tree. I appreciate the chance to see all the great places people have been. Thanks Adam.
