    Here's the photos that make up the photo wall that I did on the weekend, thread is here:
    http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=823063

    All taken this year on my trip in June, July and August. Most of the photos look better in their original wideness but had to be cropped to print @ 6x8.

    Lets see who can name the places ;)

    Wow, a very nice set of pics there. They look great on your wall.

    Out of curiosity, they are 32 out of how many taken?

    Ummm I *think* I came home with about 5000 and then quickly culled that to around 3000 that ive kept. Then from that ive probably processed 800 to print out for albums. There was a LOT of photos from the Tour de France though, a lot of bursts as the riders came by.

    Impressive! Some of the best photos I've seen around here for some time. I like too many but 2, 7 and 11 were stand outs. They will look great on your wall :thumbup:

    Thanks for the comments :thumbup: Have to go through some others and post more.

    I took more than the average person id say. Two bodies, 5d2 and 50d (plus grips). I thought a second body would come in handy at the Tour de France and also on the slight chance one of the bodies crapped itself I had a backup. And then 17-40, 70-200, 1.4x and 580EXII. All carried around from city to city in a Computrekker AW, and for daily walking around I packed my Crumpler 6 Million in my main suitcase which was a brilliant idea as I hate walking around with a massive backpack all day.

    I was getting a little nervous when this stage rolled around as id seen him in about 6 stages already and hadnt gotten as good a photo as id wanted yet, so this stage was my last chance. Shooting @ 17mm on a 5d2 that close to a rider going that fast made things interesting. But it worked out so all good :D

    That's quite a bit of gear you brought with you! I have done the same in the past, one body with grip, 24-70, 16-35, spare batteries and also my 617, lightmeter, film, filters, etc and a tripod. Packing a smaller bag for walking around is a great idea! I wouldn't want to carry a big and heavy backpack around either.

    Can only imagine how you felt before finally nailing the shot of Lance :) Very Graham Watson :thumbup:

    The angle on #19 is a tad distracting for me :eek:

    Best set of travel photos I have seen on this site. Love them, look like they have just been cut out of a travel magazine.

    Germany (Bavaria) or Austria..I have been there, but can't remember exactly where it is any more..how bad is that ?

    It's very common over there to have a pub up on top of a mountain, usually with a chairlift or cable-car nearby. Seems to be a popular pastime to hike up, pig out and scoff down a few beers, then get the cable-car down.

    Amazing country. Love to go back.

    Edit: Looked back through the photo albums... It's Berchtesgarten. Near Hitler's "Eagles Nest" :)
