From the Alps to the Andes via Brecon and Kinlochleven - take a trip round the OM Gallery
More like two weeks this time as we check out the recent additions
to the OM Gallery including shots from not one, but two OM member
meets. For the latest in uploads, see the Latest
Images page :-)
A bunch of OMers meet some of the best mountain terrain in the UK
with shots from Curved Ridge, Crowberry Tower and the legendary Aonach
Eagach ridge in this open meet
album. Looks like a cracking weekend. Check out Matt C's album as well.

Dales Looking Good
Further south, John Fitzpatrick can always be relied on for some gentle landscapes, this time he's been out in the Dales and around to produce a shot he's called 'Picture Perfect - hmmm, is there a pictorial echo here ;-) Check out the rest of his Weekend Walks album for some lovely images.

WE're used to astonishing pics of mountains and, erm, dogs, but Graeme R's taken things a stage further with an album featuring not just some lovely landscapes, but some beautiful images of British wildlife, like these red kites. More in his Graeme album.

The Brecon Beacons may not be the biggest hills in the UK, but on a good day, they have a feel all of their own and if you're lucky enough to catch a cloud inversion, you might see something like this from Imperial Dave's Beacons Magic album.

A bit further afield, Dave Stone's been off to Bolivia, which brought back some editorial memories. So far there are just three images in the album, hopefully he'll come back and add a few more soon. This is Condoriri, a stunning cluster of mountains that forms part of the Cordillera Real not far from La Paz.

Another OMer who's been off travelling is George Robertson. We were particularly taken with this atmospheric shot of Lhtose clearing in the aftermath of a storm.

Mont Blanc To Modane
Last but very definitely not least, back in Europe, Man on Stilts - not literally we hope - has been trekking from Mont Blanc to Modane using the GR5 and GR55 routes and taking the odd snap along the way. This is the Col de la Vanoise, but there's plenty more where that came from...

That's all for now. Upload
your photos here - we love looking through them - and if you want
some inspiration for places to take your camera, try the routes
section of the site. Also, the new, the wonderful, and the downright
weird, from the world of outdoor gear, is always up for comment in
