Now this is a view I'd go to the US to see.

Eat your hearts out you mortal builders, you just don't have the time. :biggrin:
That has got to be one of the most over shot views. Good, but overshot. I have a photography book with it in twice, one by Ansel Adams and one by someone else.

Nice picture of the Grand Teton! There was a mountain guide named Petzoid in that park that led paying customers to the top of that mountain until he was 89. Ha! you all who think you are too old... That is 6,000 feet or 2,000 meter gain and some tough rock and snow. Amazing.

Not nearly as breathtaking as the previous photos, but here's my hometown. Chattanooga, TN

Here's panoramic a shot taken from Lookout Mountain... the mountain in the background in the first photo.

What does overshot mean? Do you mean more people have taken a photo of it than most places? Or that it's photoshopped? Because either way who cares. :tongue2::biggrin:

Portsmouth is quite nice, from many angles, it has historical character as well.

What?! :confused: That's Dubai! That's Burj Dubai in the foreground!

Er no it's not, not unless the Dubians have a port full of British ships of the line, and frigates?

I happen to live near here, as well I think I'd recognise my own area, I hope I would anyway, especially as my father worked there in the dock yard for 20 years on and off and I was in there more often than the First Sea Baron.

I can even tell you what that area is called where the photographer is standing I know the area so well. Used to be called Spice Island as that's where you could get opium and just about anything else, including whores. Now it's a prestigious and expensive to buy houses in area of Old Portsmouth, times change.

Sure looks like Dubai to me. ARGH & I meant Burj al-Arab, obviously not Burj Dubai. Here's an aerial pic of Burj al-Arab, in addition to the one above:
