Matthew Walters on December 21, 2006

The whole area is fantastic. The only thing missing from the image is the pod of dolphins that followed us.

hai matthew...i have put my image in the map, but it doesnt appear yet in google it automatically?or i have to ask google earth to put it on?btw, give me your comment about my picture...yeah..i'm not proffessional but i just try to take a good view...what camera do you use? you know?i just use my cellphone camera (some of them).

It will take a couple of weeks for your pictures to be shown on the Google Earth geographic layer. However if you look on your images page, you will see a KML button - this will allow you to view your own images in GE.

I've had a look at your images, comments to follow! I'm amazed at the quality you can achieve with a telephone... I still only use mine for phone calls :) My camera is a Nikon D100, I've had it for about two years. Before that I used a Minolta X300 and typically used Fuji film.

I'm glad you like the photo, but remember that a lot of luck is involved in this image - it's mostly down to nature, not necessarily the equipment or me! There were also many shots that didn't make it to Panoramio.

I hope you are inspired to continue trying, the sun sets and rises every day :)

Matthew you have a rare gift of predicting the moment and capturing it on forever...

I would love to see more of your work, are you a member on any sites that would allow fans of your talent to view your collections?

Matthew Walters on September 2, 2008

Very kind comment, thankyou. Panoramio is my main photo sharing site, I also have images on RedBubble - some of which are also on Panoramio and some less geographic based images which aren't.
