DSC_0283.JPG Hi Family, I am going to try something here. All "shutter bugs" and everyone else are welcome to participate in this. We all know this site is related to GT's, but we also know we all like pictures too. So here it goes, This will be a place to come a post or view your favorite pictures. It can be of any subject ( scenery, wildlife, trains, autos & yes even tractors & implements) just something you would like to share. You can also give a time frame & location if you like.

My immediate family says I have an eye & I'm a natural at photography, but I think I'm just lucky. :)

I have 100's of pic's in my library so here's the first. I call this picture "Into the Sunset". It was taken in Aug.2007 and captures 3 passions of mine in one shot. Weather, Trains & Traveling. Hope you like it.

Couple of those photos would make great back grounds for a desktop. I'm a real sucker for sunrise and sunset photos.
