Now that looks REMOTE!!!!
jp

Quite remote. Whenever we went camping we always took twice as much water as we thought we'd need, and we made sure to tell at least two different people where we'd be and when we were getting back. Twice, I think, we had breakdowns and had to be rescued. There's not a lot of margin of error out there--probably like Alaska, in its own way.

I just posted a satellite map of the area in our Book Klub, since much of the book is set there, or near there. It's at http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,6991.new.html#new. The area in the photo above is west of Santa Teresa, in those dark areas (which are "craters" left when wind hollowed out lava flows that had gone around sand hills that later blew away).

egh, I am in no way an expert, but I think the pictures have to be on a photo-sharing site and you link to them.  so if you're just trying to upload a picture from your computer that's why it doesn't work.  This topic:

http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,211.0.html

at the top of this board gives the steps. . . .

Good luck,

Let's see if I can explain it.

You were posting this web page inside
Code: [Select]
[IMG][/IMG] tags:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/37822361@N08/3474409622/

I went to the page, right clicked on the picture, copied the picture URL and pasted that in here.




You need to "copy the image address" then paste that between the img thingys.  On some computers you right click on others you may control click.  Find out how to "copy the image address" on your computer and then you should be good to go.
The rest is still unwritten.....

One of my favorite pictures was taken by cousin in 2003. It isn't that good, but has special meaning to me. This was taken in September. My mother had just died in July. Every year my mother's sisters and some of my cousins would go to Colorado the first week of September. She had 7 sisters and 4 brothers and anyone that was able would meet up. They found this sign and had to take a picture of it. My mother's name was Nellie and it seemed she was smiling down at them and letting them know how much she loved them.

It snowed a couple times in Las Vegas last nov-dec. The morning following one of those 'rare' snow falls, I decided to go pick up some fresh Coffee cake and nice hot latte after the one morning class was cancelled. I wasn't expected home for a couple of hours and had my camera with me, so I took advantage of the alone time. So I went up to the base of the moutain, parked in the parking lot of my old high school (great view of the city and the mountains), and sat on the hood of my car to chill (the emergency blanket from the truch came in handy). On my way back home, I stopped in the middle of the street (snow day for the schools minus the colleges) and snapped this:

Vegas, is that a stitched panorama shot? Or do you have a panorama-format camera?  (Or just cropped to those dimensions?)

Great shot.

Actually I use my 7.2 mega pixel Kodak camera zoomed a little bit...then I cut out the school and the empty field of desert-ness. After the editting that was the end result above.  ;D

panorama shots have never come out for me....I just tried it on my camera and it worked for the first time

My camera...red, like always
