Title: Favorite BBRSP Pics
Post by: randell on May 23, 2007, 04:44:45 PM
I have been trying to decide which photo I took last November while in BBRSP is my favorite.  I had a few top contenders, but somehow this one was overlooked.  This week I rediscovered it and it is now my new favorite.

Here were the other contenders:

Undoubtedly, these are not the best shots there are of BBRSP, but the best I have taken.  

Anyone else have any favorite BBRSP pics?

I'm certainly no expert, but I think they are all great shots - I do like this one the best

I'd say those are some very nice shots.  BBRSP is not as photogenic as BiBe.  Here's a couple of my better ones . . . not as nice as yours.

Title: Long Horns...
Post by: SHANEA on May 23, 2007, 10:24:19 PM
Its so neat to see the long horns running around out there.  I've had the pleasure of seeing big bunches, I guess you'd call those heards, of them.
Title: TOP 10 BBRSP PICS
Post by: SHANEA on May 23, 2007, 10:39:02 PM
After combing and culling through Brazillions of BBRSP pics, I've come up with the top 10 of those that I have viewed.  Drum Roll Please....

#10 - Taken from the Rancho Viejo campsite.

#09 - Also taken from the Rancho Viejo camsite by an A-Team friend Dr. T with his digital camera while the rest of us were still clinging to our film cameras. (he was the first in our group to go digital...pace setter, early innovator)  
(http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s10/kz5bw5kz5bw5/009.jpg)

#08 - Campsite @ Ranch Viejo looking at the M&M Mountain - AKA Allens Peak - a friend of mine lost a hot with M&M Candies on it on that mountain.  Probably still there, as probably no one has climbed it since then.

#07 - Campsite @ Rancho Viejo.  
(http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s10/kz5bw5kz5bw5/007.jpg)

#06 - A friend of mines son, named after the mighty Brazos river, at BBRSP, in a structure long since gone at the springs near the Big House.  I believe this was our first trip to BBRSP.
(http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s10/kz5bw5kz5bw5/006.jpg)  

#05 - The Rancho Viejo campsite, my fav @ BBRSP, is always plagued with "late arrivals" showing up and setting up camp here.  Good grief, there's a Brazillion acres there - 300,000+ acres, you'd think people could find somewhere else to setup.  I go to BBRSP to get away from the world.  This was "Lucas McCanes" attempt at preventing uninvited campers from pitching tents, etc.

#04 - BBRSP - Ranch Viejo - the sun is down, time for some scotch, gin, beer, wine - heck, anything with alcohol in it...  Good friends, good food, good liquor, good times...  That's the stuff that memories and dreams are made of...
(http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s10/kz5bw5kz5bw5/004.jpg)

#03 - Papalotito Colorado Campsite - great trip, very cold.  I was sick as a dog most of the trip with bronchitis and strep throat.  We packed up from here and wagon trained down to BGWMA.   Had an outstanding time here.   One of the last times that we got the entire A-TEAM together.

#02 - I call this one Diogenes.  Dr. T.
Quote
It is said that the cynic Greek philosopher Diogenes would walk through the streets of Athens with a lantern in broad daylight, in search of an honest man.

#01 - Hands down, my best of best.  It shows basically the entire Ateam @  Cinco Tinjas - and the "reflection" in the water was just a good mistake.

Thanks!  I actually wound up blowing the first one up to a 20x30 and putting it in my cube.  Came out great!

i really love the ranch, i think the remoteness of it and the fact that there isn't much info on it out there make it sort of a new place to explore, though thats not really the case  :eusa_boohoo:

Hello 01ACRViper,

I was hoping you might be able to tell me where this picture was taken.(http://www.grbphotography.net/folders/bbnov06/images/IMG_9883.jpg)
Actually, it would be cool if you could tell us where each of them was taken.  Thanks.
