  11. Fantastic variety of images. I think the one of the bird flying low over the still water was my favourite.

    Quite a gallery you've put together!

    I'm particularly impressed by the 'bird in flight' shot you got with the 20/1.7. Great composition and timing!

    Great images Grid. And the video is fantastic - REAL offroad competition - beats the crap out of vehicles driving around in a stadium over piles of dirt! Ha!

    Hi, Grid

    Thank you for the gallery. My brother has invited me to go on a photographic trip to Iceland since he is in love with the idea of taking some pictures out there. It reminds me a lot the volcanic islands of Açores.
