I am an enthusiastic amateur. I take mainly 35mm film. My photographic aspiration is to produce landscape photos that present the subject in the most pleasing and natural way possible. I no longer participate in the forum due to the absolute pig's ear that G**gle have made of it. I appreciate sincere comments and will endeavour to visit the galleries of those who leave them. COPY AND PASTED COMMENTS WILL BE IGNORED AND/OR DELETED.

Thanks for the heads up Tom. It is really sad news but not totally unexpected.I remember when Google first bought out Panoramio and we all feared the worst then. First they imposed a new (old fashioned) forum on us, which caused me to walk away from that. Then they imposed a Gmail account on us, which I couldn't walk away from because I still wanted to use Panoramio. I have really enjoyed Pano for the 7 years I have been involved, but I am beginning to think that this is one bullying too far by Google and I am considering deleting everything. Flikr did a big change last year that lost them many, many users whilst gaining many more camera-phone users. I still persist there for the time being because it still has its uses for me.

7 years, 1300 photos and 1.7m views. More important is the history in the comments, which I occasionally revisit for a chuckle or two.

Google bought Panoramio because it was a great idea and looked good in their portfolio, but it has suffered through lack of passion that the founders had (before selling out for their pound of flesh).

I will make my final decision soon. Whatever happens y'all take care now!

Lots of snow late in the year - that's what we had in Iceland, too. The road to Askja was only opened the second week in July. Here the snow is such a Lovely contrast to the dark rock and blue lake and sky.

Wonderful details, very well captured. Greetings!

Many thanks, Al. I'm not sure that your fav compliment will be added no unfortunately. Panoramio is going to be removed in the future. :(

Warm wishes, Amelia
