A full rainbow forms above horses grazing at Owl Creek Ranch in Snowmass Village, Colorado. Apparently this guy was driving around when this perfect pic appeared. Just goes to show ya -- always have your camera ready. His editor accused him of carrying blow-up horses in his trunk. Copyright Dan Bayer 1999 www.dbpix.com
This picture went around the Internet, pretending to be the tsunami of December 26, 2004. It's really not. That tidal wave was only four feet high. Packed a hell of a punch, though, didn't it? This picture was created in a photo manipulation program. Google "Christmas Tsunami" for more about the real thing.
Dolphins are a common sight in the waves off Malibu, California. This pic was shot by sports photographer Kurt Jones in 2003. It is not a shark! You can order the print from his web site: http://www.surfshooter.com/, plus see more of his totally cool surfer pics.

Morning sunlight on eastern wall of El Capitan, Yosemite Valley, California, with Merced River in foreground.
Pictures of El Capitan make me feel wistful. They remind me of someone long ago, someone who climbed rocks and rode motorcycles, someone who took me to San Francisco, someone that I said 'no' to. I've always kind of regretted that, saying no.

Johannes Hjorth of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, did it to play a joke on his friend. See more at: http://www.nada.kth.se/~hjorth/krasse/english.html
Only one keyboard was harmed in the making of this joke.
