Those pics of the 1st drop of El-Toro were incredible! From some of the views it looks like the drop is straight down! Hopefully I can find a way to get there next year.

Just gotta say, Allison's face on El Toro is amazing. These pics are making me regret not doing the EC trip :( Oh well... Next year some of you may be seeing me again :D

^^^^ hmm charging for my pictures?? hmm.. that might be an idea indeed.. this way i could make money for next years trips.. ;-)

No just kidding.. at this moment that has not come to mind yet.. but never say never.. if i could combine coasters/parks and taking pictures for a decent income.. well i might be tempted...

anyway.. thanks (again) for all the nice comments so far it is time for another update...

Day 6: Busch Gardens Europe at Williamsburg

This was a massive long day.. but also a good day to get some pictures from people.. since there were plenty of opportunities to get close enough to the rides..

a "massive" amount of pictures will follow.. just keep in mind.. it' still a selection of all the pictures that day...

Hope you enjoy them, the following pictures are posted in the order they were taken..

Hanno....amazing shots, especially of Griffon, one of my favourites from the trip.

Oh and where did that picture come from?? I guess I deserve that for some of your candid pics on my Photo TR :)

Really, I can't remember what Scott was reaching for (again..) that time and why I was simultaneously trying to move away (...again) lol

Great update indeed!

You should totally charge for your 'onride' photos! I'll buy a bunch of those for myself!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Some interesting facial expressions of me, especially on Roman Rapids and Log Flume.


That was sure an amazing day after our previous day at SFA. :)

I've gone pantless!

a bear and a camera..


The bear used to have a mylar balloon on a pole, too--but they took that out a long time ago.

Great shots of my home park, Hanno.
