Awesome!! Thanks for choosing one of my images, and thank you for the opportunity in general. Also, congrats to all of the other winners… the mountian biking image on Vancouver Island definitely looks like an adventure.

@Greg – Thx for the cudos……and regarding the Mtn Biking shot; we were somewhere west of Parksville looking for the Hammerfest trails. Lack of a good map didn’t help. It was always an adventure on the Island…
