Hello Marilyn. Only exist one animal with five legs: the photographer-with-a-tripod. Thanks for "hunting". :D

Greetings. Pepe

Excelent shot and great equipment! ")

Caught in the action!

Gr, Ed.

Thanks, Pepe, Wallace, and Ed. When I turned around and saw him, it felt as though he was posing just for me--but of course he was very busy planning a photograph.

As for me, I don't have energy to carry all that equipment! I'll have to make do with my little compact ultra-zoom that is small enough to stay with me all the time.

Greetings, Marilyn

Greetings Marilyn, Very nice. I had to laugh. At Dead Horse Point I decided to take a picture of one of the other photographers at just the same time he was going to take one of me. This makes a great shot, and what a lovely area.

Did one or both of you take the picture?

Thanks, Rich, for your comment. Although I'll map this, I don't suppose it's a GoogleEarth type of shot. Yet to me it gives a real feel for the area which is, indeed, a lovely one.

Cheers, Marilyn

This is a really nice one Marilyn! "The animal with five legs" indeed! It looks like you had a wonderful visit to this fascinating area.

"Oh, look mommy - it's a wild photographer!"

Funny picture in a wonderful setting, Marilyn.

Like Richard, in Madrid I took a picture of my friend while he took one of me (it was a kind of photography-nerd moment because we both had just put the telelenses on ;) )

Cheers, Justin

Hi dear friends, "Mount Rushless Gang" seems to be very crowded now; two nice ladies joined the group, welcome to them, ;o)) greetings Annick

Thanks, Nawitka and Justin, for your comments. Yes, I had a wonderful time! And Annick, thanks for alerting me to the new "sculptures"! Greetings, Marilyn
