Nice start Hanno, I must also insist on knowing which lens you use, I would further like to know your average shutter speed and while you're at it you can tell me something sexy about your aperture too...

What I wanna know is how big is his ISO is and if he plays with it at night.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

The pictures are beautiful! The parks look great, and they really want to make me go on a theme park review trip. Looks like a great time!

I must have spotted you while on the Starflyer because for most of the ride I was holding on for dear life. That thing was pretty terrifying.

I'm terrified of heights but I didn't feel any fear on the starflyer, must have been the jetlag, in fact I didn't feel any fear on any ride the whole trip. Statosphere Tower of the top of Half Dome at Yosemite - well that was another story.

I'm just happy Hanno hasn't photgraphed me scratching my butt or anything else, because you never know when Hanno has you in his sites.

Thanks for the all effort Hanno, I do notice that you spend a lot of time taking photos when you could be riding and it's great that you can share your really great photos with us. Especially with number of mind erasers on this trip there might be a few blank spots in the memory bank where your photos can fill in the gaps.

Great photos Hanno! The action shots of the splashdown really captured the drenching provided by the log flume.
Can't wait to see the rest of your photos from the trip.

Thanks for all the nice comments so far. Happy to hear that people enjoy the pictures (so far)

No worries about me posting pictures of somebody scratching his/her...
I would most likely not see it happening or would not be quick enough with my camera... on the other side i guess it's just way too grosse to post...

although it might be very funny.. hmm.. i guess i have to double check my pictures....

anyway.. time for some more pictures..

Day 3 was spent all day at Canada's Wonderland
(aka Behemoth Bash)
