I just put this up in my office and it's stunning. Props to Kane for his beautiful photography.

SWEET! His stuff is incredible, agree.
When are you going to climb Capitol?
Can't just look, ya know! :mrgreen:

Now I have some motivation to climb it. I'm going to try to tackle the Wilsons this summer - we'll see how that goes first.

Carry the rocket and snowspeeder with you and try to recreate your office scene as fully as possible while you are out there. :mrgreen:

You mock my toys - never do it again! That's actually a replica Saturn V signed by Buzz Aldrin. And yes, that's a super nerdy Lego Rebel Snowspeeder - not quite as nerdy as the Lego Millenium Falcon out of the picture. :-D

That is a great picture! I found a similar photo of Capitol with aspens in the foreground and am using it for my background on my work computer!

Oh my I had to laugh Doug! "Got me a Kane" :roll: Well I'll certainly take that as a compliment and that you're happy with your new image. That metallic paper is quite showy isn't it? If you're ever interested in getting Capitol and doing it in big fashion, I'll be happy to sit down with you and discuss a backpack to Pierre Lakes and climb of Capitol Peak. I've been to the Pierre Lakes twice and it has to be one of the top 3 places in Colorado. Climbing Capitol from there isn't much more difficult than the standard approach....once you're at the lakes of course.

Take care,

Kane

Okay - still trying to figure out how to add bigger pics. This gives a little better idea of how nice the pic is. The metallic paper is crisp and clear.
