Hi everybody!  wave 

I love digital photography and would like to share two of my very best photos with my fellow a.netters. I think that they will make beautiful "wallpapers" for your desktop PC. The first photo of the cloudy sky was taken near Cape Town, while I was on holday there earlier this year. This is my favourite wallpaper which I also have on my PC at work!

To download, first click on the image to open up the full sized version (1600 x 1200 pixels) and then save to your PC. Enjoy!

You know what, Stan, if you want me to wear 37 pieces of flair, like your pretty boy over there Bryan, why don't you make the minimum 37 pieces of flair?

At least you have it nice and straight on the centre line, don't worry about your flare being to high, just watch your airspeed!

Hey, I don't care! It was a perfectly soft landing at the right place of the runway. I was just a few knots slower than I should have been. The passengers didn't really complain, in fact they praised me  innocent

This is a little un-related and might sound stupid, but how did you get an Airbus on Flight Simulator? I love flight simulator but don't know how do get AC that were not originally on it.

Here are two of my favourite desktop pictures that I have taken;

I took this near Swartz Bay, North of Victoria. I was on the ferry that goes from Vancouver to Victoria.


This one was taken on a ski mountain called Big White, in the interior of BC, near a city called Kelowna.

This is a picture I took on October 14/05 about a 1/2 hour drive from Algonquin Park in Northern Ontario. The trees were so beautiful and although the day was overcast and cold..... when I spotted those 2 chairs beside the lake it looked so peaceful...

So currently this is the pic I have on my computer..
