Thanks so much, Frank. I've been working on that picture off and on for 8 years to get it where it is now. I can also wish it were a raw file but the jpeg is not bad, especially considering it was a tiny-sensor Nikon P5000. :thanks:

Your smiling tourists, with word bubbles, is a hoot! Fort McHenry* in Baltimore has similar end to presentation, where window curtains open to show a large U.S. flag on a tall pole by one of the fort's walls, while The Star Spangled Banner plays. It's super-memorable.

Thanks so much for the link, Linda! The closest we ever got to Baltimore, in 2013, was Antietam (Sharpsburg). Daphne would have loved to have gone, more especially to see that RR museum as she was a lifelong train buff.

Charles Haacker wrote:Thanks, Steve. If you get a chance, GO! Johnston Ridge is easier to get to and has a better view right into the muzzle of the thing. There's also a swell museum there. Windy Ridge is really pretty undeveloped and harder to get to, but it has the view of Spirit Lake. It also took the brunt of the blast.

The first two are nice images, well composed and well shot, and you've rescued them well from their unedited beginnings. That last one, though is something very special, with the massive mountain, the dramatic lighting and atmosphere. Outstanding. Well done, glad you finally brought that one out to share! (The image of you and Daphne is so sweet, too).

Thanks, Minnie, but that's not me in that picture: it's our son, Matt. Matt did make a picture of us with my camera. Here 'tis...
