Well, I lied, it was almost five months ago, but I haven't gotten a chance to upload them.

The first one of interest is in Kurdistan of Northern Iraq, which I am from. I visited there to see my relatives (it's much safer than the rest of Iraq). I took a flight from Vienna to the provincial capital of Erbil/ Hawler, and spent about a month there, hiking mountains and taking in the scenery.

Here are some pictures from Vienna. I was to originally spend a week there, but due to some issues back home, we could only stay two days. The ones I've chosen to show here are the Schonbrunn and the Hofburg. The Schonbrunn is the yellow one, and the Hofsburg is the grey one that curves a bit.

I've uploaded the entire collection of selected photos to megaupload here.

I have incorporated these pictures into a Google Earth kmz, showing where I had taken those pictures.

That's awesome Merc, some beautiful scenery there.

Goes to show there is a lot more than meets the eye over there doesn't it? Beauty can be found in every corner of the world. (Well.. with exceptions..)

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.;4038871Like New Jersey....

Now in Jersey's defense, they have nice suburbs. Their cities (Newark and Jersey City, I'm looking at you) on the other hand...

And that is a waterfall that emerges from a mountain. The water comes out very fast, which you can see by how foamy and white the water is.

Thanks for the comments you two.

Thanks for the comments.

I have a question though- where is a good place to host these images? Imageshack is good but it's hard as hell to keep these things organized. Photobucket I tend to exceed bandwidth...

Exceed bandwidth on Photobucket? How much do you need?

That first batch of pictures is beautiful, especially all the waterfalls. I love waterfalls.
