Hello fellow earth-browsers! If you see a photo of mine that you like, and would like to get print, please contact me via panoramio message - my prices are very reasonable for a one-use copy right (with high-res watermark-free source file provided). Favorite hobbies include music (I play piano and trumpet) and, of course, photography. I've put some of my music up at: www.soundcloud/peter-herman www.soundcloud/the-hermanator I also love motorcycling, which I combine with my photography hobby by riding my Yamaha FJR1300 through the countryside in search of "good light" and the "next photo". In my day job, I work as a Research Engineer. Oh- almost forgot - I'm a bit of a disc golf fanatic.

Wonderful shot!! Like Greetings, Enrico

A pair of nominate sp. Eurasian Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula pyrrhula). Irkutsk and Baikal is at the southern edge of this variety's breeding range, and the population may be variably augmented by post-breeding migrants from the north/northwest. A similar plumaged subspecies 'cassini' occurs in Ussuri and China but does not stray this far west.

Incidentally, the shot is a vertical panorama taken with two horizontal format images both of which were three separate images, combined via HDR tonemapping. Also I used a very wide angle lens so this is a very wide perspective compared to the "actual" perspective/feel at the spot.

Traffic wasn't too bad when we were driving, at late evening hours. ButThey sure do drive FAST down there!

Thanks Art, the lighting was really harsh with bright cloudless skies most of the time, but you gotta make do with what you've got. We had a great time. Thanks for browsing!

Nice composition.
