To daddo: PS

Thanks Klaudio,
In fact I have adjusted shadows and the sky quite a bit. It's just hard to decide how far to go on that.

To delpeoples: Tripod

Thanks Lisa,
I'm too lazy to carry a tripod around. But on this particular case I doubt it would have made any help. First, bridges tend to shake and vibrate a little. And I don't know if I could...

To macjake: Cessna

Hi Craig,
Your critique reminded me of your recent series of Vancouver from the air. And made me wonder which one is safer, a helicopter or a six seater Cessna. I don't have an answer for that...

To serp2000: Japan

To Praetzer: Level?

To delpeoples: Italy

Thanks Lisa,
This was just a short detour near the Swiss border.
And no, Finland has no mountains like this.

To macjake: Snowmobiles

Thanks Craig,
I was just walking. But indeed snowmobiles are quite popular in rural areas. There are about 140000 of those in Finland. My sister's family has one.

Invalid ac_i_query

Apostrophe (´) is at least one character that seems to cause Invalid ac_i_query at the moment, if used on critique.
How strange is that?

To macjake: weather

Thanks Craig,
You guessed it. Up to +15 on sunshine and a lot cooler after sunset. It was +2 and sleet the next day at the airport of Milan.

To lousat: Airline seat

Thanks Luciano,
The place was not a matter of luck, I deliberately chose window seat on the left behind the wing. But the weather of course is what you happen to get.

To macjake: Golf courses

Thanks Craig,

To macjake: That controversial sign.

Thanks Craig,

Yes, I noticed that news too, it happened on one of my favourite railway lines near Tiefencastel. That wasn't actually high up on the mountains but on a steep river gorge. But...

To macjake: Cows

Thanks Craig,
