I would make the home page and the gallery pages the same template. Pick one and stick to it.

I wouldn't put up a shot if I couldn't identify it and I'd definitely run your text through a spellchecker (it's waterfowl, not waterfoul, for example).

Maybe its just me, but starting just about every album with "High Sierra" becomes pretty redundant. Its stated in your bio that you obviously love shooting the Sierras, but I dont think you have to introduce every album a such.

Great photos by the way. Great comp. I can see these hanging. Its obvious why you love it so much.

Not to nit-pick, but it's 'Sierra', not 'Sierras'. ;)

Hikin Mike, I read an excerpt from a 1947 Sierra Club bulletin. It was very informative and interesting. Thanks again for pointing it out.

seed808, so much for sleeping on it, my wife agreed with you, it's changed!
