SKIPJACK - I am spechless, got goosebumps looking at this one, and steal it for my desktop. THANKS, I owe you one!

kellychapman - 12-7-2006 at 03:55 PM

Phototheraphy.......that is what this is.
I think I will try that 12 step ....hmmmmmmm...manana....
maybe it will work since the sunrises are later then in the summer, so now would be a good time to start.....I cannot believe I actually sleep through this. Time for a change........

FARASHA - 12-7-2006 at 03:58 PM

OKAY KELLY - expecting your SUNRISE Photo by tomorrow !:biggrin:

Natalie Ann - 12-7-2006 at 04:31 PM

Skipjack - What a magical image, this last post of yours. It transports me... makes me feel like I'm lying on my back in the bottom of that canyon, looking skyward and watching thebeauty of the night roll in. Thank you!

Cincodemayo - 12-7-2006 at 05:09 PM

Wow everyone those are just awe inspiring! Just fantastic shots.

Here's one of Ascencion...after having some peyote with the locals. Just kidding!

Cincodemayo - 12-7-2006 at 05:18 PM

It's so cool I had to post it anyway. Arenal in Costa Rica...well it's just next door to Baja!

windgrrl - 12-7-2006 at 06:18 PM

:wow: Cincodemayo - I understand that view is a rare event! We only saw clouds & rain, but lots of wind, so very good for windsurfing!

jorgie - 12-7-2006 at 06:19 PM

kellychapman - 12-7-2006 at 07:19 PM

Skipjack Joe - 1-15-2007 at 02:38 PM

I'm glad this thread is getting attention again. I sort of missed it. That fog picture is really neat Summanus. I love that highway but there are very few pictures that capture the feel of the journey. That's one of them. I would guess that's somewhere north of San Quintin. Actually all of the recent contributions are wonderful. I hope to see more.

BajaNomads 100 Best Sunrise and Sunset Photo Contest Postcards

Sharksbaja - 1-15-2007 at 07:03 PM

I couldn't help myself here. The pictures are so cool I thought we should be able use them since so many generously contributed.
If you want to print the postcards correctly, first download the photo to your harddrive etc.. Next set up your printer with the smallest margin possible and set for regular letter size in horizontal mode.
Print at your printers highest resolution setting and use photo-quality paper.

They are all great shots. I still can't make up my mind which one is best. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For ease of use I put in linkable thumbnails.

Just south of the riverbed that runs through Loreto. This was one of my favorites until I saw some of the pictures posted here.

FARASHA - 1-16-2007 at 08:51 AM

WOO - absolutely lovely - I can steal it for my desktop???

FARASHA - 1-16-2007 at 08:53 AM

SUMMANUS - Isn't it something special with that misty mornings in that area? I loved it, and took some of those misty morning shoots myself.

BigWooo - 1-17-2007 at 06:37 AM

Thanks Sharks, that must have been a lot of work. What a great idea! Looking at all of them together makes it impossible to decide which is best. Each photo has some attribute, be it subject or quality, that makes it as good as any other.

Thanks Sharks!:bounce::spingrin:

If you are enjoying those beautiful sunsets as a slide show--screen saver, just how much work are you doing? :lol::lol:

I suspect that like many of us, you are just dreaming about getting there and watching them in person. :tumble: These pictures just make the longing for Baja worse ---- they are just wonderful.


FARASHA - 1-17-2007 at 10:36 AM

:rolleyes: OOPS - caught guilty. Well, Don't need PC all the time when doing desk work -UHM, and then I hm, ehem, eh - OKAY - was lazy today - simply!!:bounce::P

NEWSFLASH....this just in...taken last week on the La Paz to Topo ferry at (guess what) sunset.

CasaManzana - 1-17-2007 at 05:45 PM

That 6 hour ride to the mainland is so much fun on that big ferry. I'm thinking of doing an "Idiots Guide to Mainland Mexico" via La Paz ferry with pix. Any interest?? A U2U would do it if I get a dozen or so.

David K - 1-17-2007 at 09:44 PM


Paula - 1-17-2007 at 09:49 PM

Casa, please show/tell us more about the ferry and your mainland travels from Topo.

Thanks Minnow... That is nice to see.

When I was in Puerto Peņasco (across the gulf from San Felipe) I could see the top of Diablo Mountain and some of the sierra... From San Felipe you cannot see across to Sonora as there are no tall mountains near the coast... Guess the world is round, after all!:light:

Punta Pulpito behind with Punta San Antonio extending out to the east.
