Beautiful, Dave, but I'm not sure why you felt you needed to but it behind spoiler codes!

The pictures aren't particularly wide. It's fine to use the spoiler codes, but it definitely isn't necessary.

Those are absolutely gorgeous! :love: I've driven through the Upper Peninsula a couple times and loved the scenery, but it was in the middle of really long road trips, and I was too tired (and ready to get back home) to stop and explore. Thanks for sharing these!

Both the mobile app and Tapatalk resize the images. It's the desktop version that may have issues.

I caught this shot while at the Farmer's market downtown yesterday. It should have been an incredible shot, but my new phone camera has been a huge disappointment. Photos are not sharp and often have a watercolor effect. I specifically chose a Pixel 6 because it was supposed to have an exceptional camera.

Nice photo!

I know several people who have the same phone as you do V and the camera is FAR superior.

I did not take this photo, but when it came up in my feed I thought it was stunning so I'm sharing it. By Mexican photographer Moises Levy.
