A mere suggestion - maybe a fall season banner pic ??

I'm probably not the best person to be making a request but here it goes......

As nice as the photo is of the 5 lads on the current banner pic any 'shot' of bannering a fall season photo??

I have some older pictures of fall colors in Ice House Canyon but the quality isn't that good but I'm sure you folks that actually hike have some cool  Wink autumn photos...

Even if a banner photo change is not in order, maybe some people here would post some of the finer fall photos.

One more thing, despite tomorrow's high temps, I am sooooooooooo happy summer is over!! Razz  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation

Post 'em if you got 'em!

Well, that worked out well... Hey Mr. Taco, look where I snagged this photo from  Wink  Surprised --- credit going towards Dr. Habes...

My Ice House Canyon shot is not even close to this beauty...

Nice one, Simonov.  When was that taken?

It's good to see this thread moving along... I want you guys to all pick which one should be the banner. Keep in mind it's gotta be a landscape style one, not a portrait. Wide, not tall. Etc. Gotta fit up there. Extra nonexistent points if you make the banner!

Might need to crop it a bit to fit the aspect ratio you need.

Nothing like a little seasonal color I always say.

Laughing  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing An instant photochop classic Jim!!!  I thought about really scaring that photo up by adding Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace dancing with the stars images but the horror was too much....



Of course my funny bone, wants the one above, my heart loves this one from your other thread --- beautiFULL!

Hikin_Jim

Thanks, bro, although the funny pic is from Packer Greg.

Glad you like the fall color shot.  Took a lot of shots that day.

That last one is beautiful. Where is that?
Hikin_Jim

Those are all of Aspen Grove in the SGW.  All shot on Friday Oct 7.  The last shot is after the sun went behind the ridge.

But... but...but... do you wanna' put SGW shots in the San Gabriel forum? I think I can dig up fall shots from Liebre Mountain area.
Mike P

A really appropriate fall picture might be something like this:

or:




before someone gets too offended - I'm still looking for the Liebre Mountain pics...
Mike P

OK, try Fish Canyon in the fall:

Finally found Liebre pics but they are not quite as fall-like as Jim's aspen.




PackerGreg

Mike, my initial thoughts went there too.

Embarassed Ding dong, I'm awake now, thanks Jim ---- PackerG, shouldn't that be 'Colorform'  Razz

Maybe PackerG could Colorform Chaz Bono riding a zipline into this weiner, I mean, winner of a photo



Oh wait, consider Sonny's fate, maybe not...

Patrick, Dave, Frank, Mark and Shin.  Five men, friends, thanks to the SGMDF
Taco

Cool

Good photos, all. If you can kinda sorta vote on one for a banner, please do.
Hikin_Jim

I think Burchey's photo has a lot of, um, merit.  Laughing

Good 1, Taco!  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing

What about this one?  That bag has some nice fall colors, don't it?  Plus, it's 'Taco Flavor', what a bonus!

Taco

No more things with me in them!
Hikin_Jim

On a more serious note, the one that Outwhere picked isn't half bad:


HJ
Taco

I like that one as well.
HikeUp

Now if only we can do a wierd version of the resevoir dogs hiding in the fall scene picture kinda like the "where's Waldo" comics we'll be all set  Very Happy  Shocked

Just got back from the area where the "Dog's Picture" was taken, there's snow in that chute again - so a new "shot" might be needed for the up coming winter snow  Very Happy only this time I'm adding one of those crazy girl climbers that we've been hanging out with so we can name the picture "Resevoir Dogette's"  Wink

Taco, you're doing a great job, if you head out on the road maybe some of us can get together to figure out how to keep the board running while you are gone - an assist until you return.

Peace Out  Very Happy
Taco

For sure!

tho after the fact, i LIKE too.
