I call this one "Bow Wow!" It's an extreme close-up of a crack in the 'bark' of a tree in a green space near my home.

phuviano, great shot of the falls in the first one, love that metal grid over the image.

emacman, love the shot of the wind turbines.

Max, great stuff of the fogged in Montreal streets, your partially 'blown out' field shots in the stadium practically mimic the fog in the previous shots.

screature, interesting beach shots. As Max indicated, very outerworldly...<--is that a word?

They were apparently added in 1988.

OK Doug, that makes sense. I thought as much. I certainly didn't recall seeing them there in the early 80s when I went with a couple of my brothers. Mind you, that was a pretty debauched, beery trip - how I remembered much of anything is beyond me. Speaking of beer, not too happy about coughing up seven beans for a cup of Coors this time around. Yechhh. You could have Coors, or you could have Coors. I am so glad I am not a regular patron of such places. The choices for libations are terribly retrograde. These sponsorship deals really suck.

Another one from that day, showing said vents.

I spend a lot of time in spring, summer and fall at Elk Island National Park east of us by about 80 km. One day while out hiking with my camera, I rounded the edge of some bush and came upon this bull North American Bison taking a nap. One never really realizes just how big they are until you experience a face-to-face encounter. I snapped this one shot and backed off slowly and he never moved. Of that, I was glad. He was much too close for comfort.
