Re: Too Much Spped

Oh, wow. Talk about serendipity. Same event - bad timing for the driver; good timing for the photographer. Such is life. Two sides of the same coin. :D I sure hope the driver is safe and no one is hurt.

Re: San Marco Piazza, Venice at Night

Thank you Yildiz and JT. Yes, they were all hand held. I thought of coming back around 3am to take a shot when it was deserted but felt with the throngs of tourists it would be at best sparse. So decided to catch up on my sleep. :D https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48685693741_a41a0a56d2_b.jpg htt...

Re: Dolomites, Italy

Yildiz, Thank you. It was fairly bright day and high shutter speed (1/250sec) on a 24-70 lens. That was my wife taking the photos and I take it she has steadier hands than mine. A roadside restaurant. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48643868373_8c07268018_b.jpg View from the restaurant parking l...

Re: Dolomites, Italy

Yildiz, Indeed. In fact the entire Great Dolomite Road is strewn with idyllic villages and bucolic leas. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48644289246_da2feb43ea_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48644405107_f0372ca2b3_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48644382182_2584f5b888_b.jpg

Re: Dolomites, Italy

. You are more than welcome to the justifying praises, Sury. :) After all you achieved all of your previous goals. I was wondering how those long buses were able to make the narrow bends myself, then I read your mid-post explanations. So many bends like these make me very nauseous since an early ag...

Re: Dolomites, Italy

Thank you JT. This is a sweeping vista from a restaurant on a hill top on the way from Cortina to Bolzano on Great Dolomite Road that connects Cortina to Bolzano going through bucolic leas, mountains and valleys. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48644428201_e3c40d4fb4_b.jpg Missus enjoying the vi...

Re: Dolomites, Italy

View on the way down from Tre Ceme. Learned to minimize the color skew due to bus window tinting. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48644610767_70e59fc233_b.jpg First time in a long time encountered what we used call "hairpin bends" in India. You have to make sure while going down that t...

Re: Dolomites, Italy

Yildiz, Thank you. :D To all the members of the forum, It is heartening to get the feed back I am getting on these sets. All the teachers on the forum who so unselfishly provided me with their input and suggestions to improve has a lot to do with it. Today, in India we celebrate "Teachers day&q...

Re: Dolomites, Italy

Thank you Jeff and Yildiz. I am slowly working through the photos. I fell in love with Dolomite region. This would perhaps be one of the two places (other one being Alaska) that I would not mind visiting again. Tri Cime i Lavaredo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tre_Cime_di_Lavaredo A panorama https:/...

Dolomites, Italy

I went on a 3 week vacation to Italy (1 week Dolomite area, 1 week Eastern Mediterranean Cruise, 1 week Sicily) - reunion with my engineering college classmates, celebrating 43 years of friendship and most of us turned 60 years of age. In our regional tradition, the lunar calendar cycle is 60 years ...
