Sorry about the width of the images; I uploaded some before and made them too small. I guess I overcompensated here, but if you have a high-res widescreen monitor they'll fit OK.

Not sure - i think they may be berries - the guide reckoned the bears eat 200,000 berries a day. They might be cranberries. Here is another picture I just took for the coulours....

Heres some more from around the anchorage area in the last couple of weeks.
This one is called Flattop mountain and is the most popular hike in Anchorage - it is 3510ft but you can drive up to 2200 ft before you start, so it is pretty quick up and down. It has snow on it as of last week.

Not terribly stunning images but they were taken on my K800i Camera Phone.

I have been very impressed with this phone (for its camera ability) and think it would make a very reasonable 'emergency' camera for when you need to have something there!

Anyone else got any camera phone images worth sharing?

Oh my Ive just had a thought what if somewhere between you taking the picture and uploading it and posting it up here on the org Jesus thought right I'll spook all them thats not listening so he got "someone" to tamper with the picture unbeknown to you and lo and behold!

My mither just sent me the latest Calender from the Graot and Courier and I have to say I am very disdappointed with most of the photos. The only one i really liked was the one on the front cover - The Little Clett by Keith Parkes.

Could be a more exact location that you have given Andy, it's a fair few miles along Strathalladale on the left side of the road where a new bridge has been built next to the old narrow stone one. Their is also a stone building with a wooden water weel at the south end just to the north of where the force comes down, from here you start the climb up to Forsinard.

Andy Coyne

...also a stone building with a wooden water weel at the south end just to the north of where the force comes down,

You mean like the one in the link I posted above;)

A couple of hundred yards up the burn there are some spectacular waterfalls, well worth wandering up there in wet weather. The only photos I have of them were taken on my old 'wind up' camera and dont do the falls justice when scanned.

Indecently Smigel is almost unpronounceable with a Somerset accent:(

Think you've hit the nail on the head Andy , will check when I get the rest of pics and see if the mill matches but it looks as though it will.
Was tempted to go a walk up aways but the ground was real icy , how far up do you have to climb to see the falls?

The photo was taken using a Nikon F90X with a Nikkor 24-120 zoom lens, f11 at approx 1 second on Fuji Velvia film. The 35mm slide was then scanned with a Nikon Coolscan III film scanner and post processed in Photoshop. It was saved as a large TIF file then resized and converted to JPG for the web.

Thanks for that info, nirofo! :D Although I have walked along Holborn Head to Clett Rock in the past, I didn't get that bit farther west to the spot where you took your photo. What a great view I missed!

Hi Sporran

It's a great walk from Brims Ness to Scrabster, or the other way round, some good birdlife, flowers, Primula scotica for one, and of course excellent scenics. The weather conditions and time of year can make a lot of difference to what you find, loads of varied sea views at any time. Best if you can be dropped of at one end of the walk and picked up at the other, you could do even better with a car at each end ! You could make an even longer and more impressive walk out of it if you started at Crosskirk and finished at Scrabster, lots of interesting geology and archeology along the way.
