I clearly remember that exact spot where you took this photo, because of the beauty. I took a photo from the car at about the same place and was slightly unhappy that we didn't take better time in that area. Tioga Pass is one of the most beautiful mountain passes I have been to and it was at that time the highest elevation I had ever been to (10,010 feet, because I ran into the forest to get higher).
Anyway, I like the shape of the mountains and how the road comes from the side and seem to have no way around the mountains! My favorite area in North America.

The one thing that motivates me the most to do local politics is the bike situation here. The cars are priority #1, always, although it seems like times are changing, at least a little bit. How i wish our politicians had done like Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Suwon or Bogotá. I'm not even sure if they see today how much more effective it is.
It's a beautiful picture and I cannot say I'm not the slightest bit envious. I hope Bergen and other cities can follow these examples. TFS

I was just looking through your very international gallery and zoomed in on USA. I couldn't help seeing that you posted this exactly 5 years before I started my New York Marathon. And that was with plenty of security forces all over the course. The risk had never been higher, but neither had the forces. It leads me to think the world hasn't changed a single bit since Bush Sr was the president. Well, the world has changed a lot, but the issues are still the same and the differences increase, both internally in USA and globally. The US foreign politics is rotten and although I believe pretty much all of them have good intentions, I clearly see why all presidents can be accused of these things. It's just that the president is not alone about making decisions. CIA has been acting extremely unjustifiable on the world stage. This could easily have been written 4 elections later. Or even today. Not much have changed there.
Godt å se bilder som betyr noe og som kan skape litt diskusjon. Tusen takk!
Hilsener fra Bergen.

I hope to cycle through this area one day. That landscape is unique in the world! You got a perfect POV for this one and the car entering in the corner is also a great extension to show the scale of this landscape. TFS

Nice to see this typical Lesotho winter landscape again. Good to see that the number of photos from Lesotho increases after our travels. We are really priviledged to be able to go there. You don't touch snow in July every day :) I hope you had a great experience down there, it certainly seems like you got to see parts of the high plateau. I miss that little country.

I feel that this picture really conveys the national pride and the many colors of Colombia. Through a friend I've heard a lot about how the city has changed over the past years. I know Enrique Peñalosa and Antanas Mockus have done a fantastic job developing Bogotá and I look forward to see it for myself. Although none of them became the president this time I hope they will get their chance. And watching the world cup will be worth it in 2018 I'm sure :) Viva Colombia!
Greetings from Norway!

What a nice daily life picture from the Channel! I like the inclusion of the scale for perspective and I feel that I'm learning about life in the channel, which is exactly what TE is for. Thanks.

Cette vue est très belle! Et le temps paraît parfait por des photos. J'aime ton point de vue especialment. Je croix que cette part de France a trop de vent, mais le jours comme ça paraît mieux que des plages dans le sud!
