The sharpness and clarity of the photos are most impressive. Photo #7 is so dramatic; how did you take it (From a roof top? Use a tripod? Open/time delayed shutter?). Were the close-up shots (e.g., #35, 37, 39, 42, et al) shot with a telephoto or were you able to get that close? Would you specify the camera and lens you used to take these terrific pictures? Thanks!

All these Pictures were taken with a Cannon, SX50HS Camera, Set on "Auto". It has "Up to 50 Times Optical Zoom" as was used on Photo 7. No Additional lens and Just Hand Held, No tripod. I also has Up to 200 Times Digital Zoom, But I never use Digital Zoom.
Here is a Picture of the Mascot Mine I took Yesterday. This Mine is up on the mountain beside my house here. Taken with 50X Zoom. (Was 4Mb, so I had to Reduce the Size to put here.)
-12C Degrees here this morning, but to give some Perspective of Distance. Here is the Mascot Mine in this Picture, Taken Today with No Zoom. You can see it, Close to the Center of the Picture. (Just to the Left Side of the Center Peak.)
The closeup photo of the Mine is truly a magnificent shot. Its composition is stunning, with the light accenting the trees just right, with dark blue sky on the left and dark area to the right. Its the kind we see in galleries and calendars! Obviously a good eye (I would have missed the Mine in the non-zoom picture without the hints) and a really steady hand for camera were needed to capture this picture. Thanks for sharing!
