    I found your posts on the Pentax forum, noticed the ADV sticker and followed up here. Nice to see you combine hobbies! I takes dedication to stop the wheels long enough to get the shot. Good on you!

    I really enjoy the pictures you do not doctor up..over saturation really makes the pictures unrealistic..for someone that has visited about half of these sights, disappointed in illusion picture doctoring...but hey ,all these people seem to enjoy your efforts..just me...I enjoy your pictures that actually look as I or anyone would expect to find when visiting these sights...Having said that...I have found your sight very interesting..enjoyed seeing all the s e great places..

    As always, fantastic pictures Dave! I like the way you vary some of the presentations and the HDR. Thanks for all the effort you put into the photo work you share with us. Always entertaining. :thumb

    Another great report and pics:clap:clap:clap

    I have ridden in the sierra's a couple of times but I can see I barely scratched the surface of the riding there. Someday I'll have to spend some time riding the area.
