You're right. I don't take an afternoon drive, stop to take a snapshot of a waterfall from the roadside, then claim it was some work of art taken after a 14 day trek in the wilderness. No, I don't do that at all. ;-) From: Doug McDonald on 1 Aug 2010 14:36 >> >> >> Why do people post URLs that are "unavailable"?

I know I wasn't on any road or in any vehicle when I shot that photo. But why is it that in all other images of those falls posted on the net that you can't see the east wall of the falls but in my photo it is clearly seen and makes the falls look so much better? Now explain how I drove a car to that peak far above the tree-lines in the Rockies where it was snowing in August and took that shot overlooking that valley a mile below. Must have been one helluva jeep, eh? Or how about that extremely rare plant deep in the swamps, must have been an Amphicar for that one, right? It's illegal to propagate that plant (they even made a movie about it), in case you didn't know that, so it can't be found anywhere near civilization. Or maybe that Mule-deer in the plains grasses just happened to be lying next to the road because it was hit. How come you didn't come up with these lies too? They're just as obvious, aren't they? You fuckingly useless insecure city-boy momma's-boy of a troll. I'm sorry that your life hasn't been as adventurous and wondrous as mine. And that you haven't seen and photographed as amazing things as I have all my life. But that's your own sorry excuse of a life and pathetic fault. Try to not take out your regret of a life on those who haven't lived as sheltered and wuss of a life as you have lived. You've made that quite obvious.
