Frontier Photography

These pictures are awesome. Sorry for the belated "prayer" I very much enjoy seeing the walking tours and would love to see as many as possible.

They won't show up warped because when zoomed all the way out your zoom is technically a "wide angle" and so it will warp images on the outside edges. Buy zooming in just a little you step out of wide-angle mode and in to standard lens. An example would be this one
