Another Geocaching Australia Locationless cache GA1438 - Sunrise. I took this photo from 7 Mile Beach south of Shoalhaven Heads. I was walking to a Geocaching Australia traditional cache I'd hidden on Comerong Island, a return distance of 12 kilometres. The cache is now listed with Groundspeak as Comerong GC3Q5H9.

Brass Cap Cache: foul weather looked to be moving in from the west, but it never actually amounted to anything other than a dramatic backdrop.

Cox Hill - A Cache for Susan: a well placed red pine on one of the final pushes up Cox Hill.

I took this about a year ago with my iPhone doing MINER'S LAKE EARTH CACHE (GC1TR39) in Ely, MN. The sun had just come up over the hills on the shore, the snow was sparkling like diamonds.

The pristine snow and ice showed where a lone deer had crossed the lake. The little white spot bugs me, I guess I should figure out how to use a photo editor. (edit to fix link to cache)

LOVE this thread! I hope to share some of my photos soon. I'm a hiker and photographer first and then became interested in geocaching when I found out about it and I love how it takes me to places I wouldn't have otherwise known about.

On a normal day,the hang gliders would land a couple minutes later 1,600 feet below, next to the road between Tiger and Squak Mtns.

 

Stepping off.

But when just the right wind funnels up between Tiger and Squak...

On their way.

they can fly north along the Cascades till the sun goes down.

 

I just wonder if they have an informal agreement with SeaTac tower. I sort of doubt they carry Mode C transponders or radios for talking to ATC. Those specs, just a few of many that day, passed through KSEA Class B airspace if they got above 5,000 feet.

We set up camp at a Harris Beach in a Oregon and then went for a panoramic view  at Alien Artifax before a storm came through.  There was something unworldly about what we saw . . .  just a matter of timing.
