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

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.

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.
