Some D70 users may recognize these images when I previously posted them elsewhere, but since I'm new here and these are my some of my more recent images I figured I'd share them here. These are from our vacation last month.

The last one is actually in the Davis Mountains, about 2hours northwest of Big Bend. The rest of the gallery can be found here: http://www.pbase.com/jkohn/big_bend_2005 . Comments, critiques, and suggestions welcome. Thanks for looking.

Nice captures of what looks to be a very pretty area...Guess I'll have to add that to my list of places I'd like to visit....BTW, the 3rd shot is my favorite.

Very nice series, the only picture that "takes away" from the series would have to be #2. It is still a good shot, just nothing like the others. The last picture almost reminds me of Ansel Adams, you have great detail in shadows and highlights, nicely done.

Jeff, you left out West Texas moonrise..that is one of my favorites. Still great shots of Big Bend. So many different environments..desert, mountain, grassland, by the river. Great place for photography.

Big Bend is indeed a great place for photography, lots of really neat stuff there. One week wasn't nearly long enough, we'll definitely be going back at some point. Since you mentioned the moonrise, here's the shot (this was actually in the Davis mountains, not Big Bend):

Thanks. I agree the second one is a different kind of shot; I guess I'm partial to that one because my wife is in the shot and that particular hike was one of the high points of the trip. She doesn't particularly like getting her picture taken so I thought it was a real hoot at the time that I was able to talk her into climbing up on that rock outcropping to add a human element to the shot. :)
