I could almost swear this was taken from the American West.

Wow! You are quick on the draw! We had just descended from the road in the picture and having a rest before the steeper Hardnott Pass.

Taken from the American West? My lens isn't that long. :)

Thanks Austin.

I noticed it said "Uploaded 0 minutes ago" and thought I'd surprise you that somebody was watching. :)

So you don't have a 45,000mm earth-curveature-compensating Zinbit II lens? You should get one, they're great! Available on eBay for only $154,272,195.27 (USD) plus shipping.

Keith thank you again for your comments on my photos,its kind of you to visit my pages so often. Nice to have your portrait at the side with the new profile feature. Mine is quite old when I was nowt but a bairn. Our paths often seem to follow similar routes but the lakes this time for us was brilliant. You left the bikes behind this time? Just wondering as well, do you upload ordinary Jpeg files because it often takes quite a while for them to decompress to their full resolution. Sorry I got a little carried away with my uploads, you may have been bombarded by emails but Pano only sends them out in 25 bunches.

Imagine being a Roman soldier being posted to the fort at the top of this hill!

(Wonder if the road was there then)

Austin: I am saving up for one. Stephen: I think they are ordinary .jpgs, but I may have mixed and matched the editing between Elements and Picasa, if that makes any difference. We were in the car because it was just one night and didn't fancy the passes on fully loaded bikes. Mike: They may have built a road which has subsequently been modified. I wouldn't fancy walking it in full armour.

The day wasn't bad but a cloud came over just as I pulled up in the "Passing Place" so I couldn't stay for better light. Thanks Nick. Keith
