That is a coincidence tfa8rva I was at a wheel in Liverpool last week with the same blue sky:
I love the way you took your photo; the Liverpool wheel was probably in a similar location with buildings around. I could not find a view I liked without buildings ( although I had some good reflections on a conferance center next to it ) and did not think of your perspective. I still need to think of the non obvious views when out and about.
D70FAN; "I" didn't give you permission to go anywhere. See what you miss? WE might take away your membership next time. Yeah, right, just kidding.;)
Was it a vacation trip or a work trip?
Here is one of my Egret shots from tonite, Can't figure if this guy is trying out for the bird chorus or replacing some farmer's rooster. He postured several times like this.
Falconest another great egret shot. Are you in a blind? You seem to get a lot closer than I manage with most of our wading birds.
Nope, just walk slow and get lucky. Egrets don't seem to be as spooky as Herons. I can't take 4 steps off the riverwalk pavement before the Herons head for the other side of the river.
BTW I have just uploaded a Pano of the Saturday sunset in the Sunset thread. details in the posting, used Hugin.
Thanx guys, also D/L MS ICE and had my browser hijacked by some games site <GRRR!!>
Yup, herons are definitely tougher by a couple of hundred feet. Best I did with a heron was drifting slowly in a kayak. Got to within 40 feet but tough to work the camera steadily.
Did you get ICE straight from Microsoft's site?
Nice night shot. I got that shot while I was in Seattle on my way to Alaska. Took that one while standing in line to ride it. I also got a few decent ones while on it.

On top of the world...at Sulphur Mountain, Banff, Alberta. You come off the gondola ride in the circular building and can then stroll along various wooden walkways up to the now abandoned Weather Observatory (i.e. a glorified tiny hut), with views across to the dismantled Cosmic Ray Research Station. But the scenery is spectacular......
Mind-blowing is more like it! Great shot, spectacular scenery.
Very nice shot, but be mindful of the foreground highlights.
