Some guidance maybe?

Post by bluegreen kayak » Fri Mar 01, 2019 8:04 am

I've been trying to get a picture to show here in order to post a trip report, but without any luck. I am not very computer-savvy and don't have a lot of the equipment others have; for example, no smart phone to take pictures. I'm using a digital Lumix camera that stores pictures on an SD/HC card. I have tried multiple variations on copy/paste: directly, through a Word document, and from e-mail, but no results. Any suggestions? Thank you all for the great pictures and trip reports that I enjoy so much out here in Nebraska surrounded by snow.

Hey there, this message board doesn't support the direct uploading of photos into your message. What you have to do is upload the files somewhere online, like a photo storage service, and then you can copy & paste the photo link into your message.

I've never used it, but if you're already using Gmail or anything Google you can probably use their Photos service -- https://photos.google.com

Or if you're on a Mac there should be a way to save some of your photos you want to share to iCloud/Photos and use those links.

Hope that helps a bit!

Once you have your pictures somewhere on the internet, follow these instruction to get them into a post.

Type a [img], the link to your picture, and a [/img]

It will look like this

[img]https://www.pictures.com/mypicture.jpg[/img]

The actual link to your picture will be different than this example. I use Smugmug. It will tell you the URL of your picture. Other photo services may do the same. You may have to hover over the picture so the URL is displayed. Or click the picture so the URL is in the address bar so it can be copied.

Yup, took me awhile to figure it out too

Come back here if you can't make it work and we'll figure it out again.

Okay, my son walked me through this process using Flickr. This one previewed so we will try posting it. Thanks for all the help!

Glad you figured out how to post your images. Is there a trip report posted as well?

I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes by answering this...

There's an excellent trip report posted by bluegreen kayak on the Western Places forum,

I'm now very curious if this photo is of a natural tunnel?

The "cave"

Post by bluegreen kayak » Mon May 27, 2019 1:29 pm

It's natural, but it's not deep, which is why I put cave in quotes. I'm not sure what to call it - it's something between and arch and a cave, maybe? Thank you for the encouragement on trip reports.

I agree, some of these natural features are difficult to classify!

If I recall correctly, to be an arch, it needs to be wind-carved, but to be a natural bridge it must be water carved. And then there are also natural tunnels, such as what Steve Hall calls Oriel Tunnel:

http://www.panamintcity.com/funeral/funeralslotmsc.html

I had no idea how to classify that one when I first saw it, but Steve is fairly certain it is a natural tunnel.

Whatever it is, the formation you photographed is very nice!
