    Here's a picture I took when I was hiking in the Andes:

    And here's when I was sailing in the South Pacific:

    Not really... they're two landscapes I generated in about 5 minutes using a little freeware program called Terragen. I haven't even begun to tinker with all of the tiny details in the thing.

    I'm printing these out for my office and I'll tell my coworkers I've been to the Andes and the South Pacific. [​IMG]

    Just thought I'd share.

    Haha.. okay... I put this pic in my cell phone and sent it out to my friends:

    If they ask, I'll tell them I was mountain climbing.

    Terragen allowed me to angle the sun to match my original phone pic. I then imported it into an image editor, blurred the landscape a bit, inserted myself, and compressed the JPG so it looks more like a real phone pic.

    It doesn't look like a perfect phone pic.. the edges of me are a little too smooth. But, it should be enough to fool someone looking on a tiny screen. [​IMG]

    Of course, if that was truly a mountain, it has a mighty high tree line.. [​IMG] and I would question your attire and lack of equipment or the fact that most high mountains are typically a lot higher than the water line in your picture. [​IMG]
