Scenic views as the Great Point-and-Shoot Spirit intended them



You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Circumventing the space limitations of this 950px box we're stuck in

Usually the photos on this website -- scenic, narrational, sombre or jokey, revelatory, instructional, sometimes vain, never lewd -- are resized for this constraining table to 800x600 pixels, lest the pages be too weighty for convenient downloading. There's a certain loss of detail and immediacy by doing that. This, however, is a collection in progress of some of our favorites in the dimensions that several generations of off-the-shelf cameras have given them to us, usually weighing between 4 & 6 megabytes.
