Congrats to Bifurcator!
Last 2 months I've been busy and couldn't find much time to take photos.
I managed to go out one morning in SF a week ago, visiting a famous place I haven't
photographed before…

Congrats to Bifurcator. A worthy winner in a seriously competitive lineup.

A snapshot on my way back from a meeting in Germany, with a little product placement hiding in the shadows I should probably credit the nice lady in the window seat who was kind enough to lean over and let me shoot out the window.

Did a side trip from Steelhead fishing yesterday, Went up the north fork of the Clearwater river. Caught a few cutthroat trout and a few good pics. Rather remote, 160 mile round trip from Orifino ID. 50 miles was dirt road, rental car is a bit dusty.
