Here is a hyperlink to the Tevis Cup, with a flyover using GoogleEarth for the first six miles. My friend Karen Chaton served as the Tevis webmaster and adroitly uploaded this material to make the flyover work. First load the free minimal version of Google Earth, then upload the flyover files, then this will empower the use of these three dozen photos that I took from the saddle.
I encourage all of my AERC friends to take photographs from the saddle of the trail conditions for all sorts of endurance rides. Then carefully edit them, parse them, crop them, and retitle them. Discard the junky or blurred views. Crop away the views with too much blue sky and too much foreground. Finally, you have a suite of informative equestrian photographs with lasting value.
Then: upload these onto www.panoramio.com Then, provide a detailed description of each photo. And finally, plot the photgraphh onto the satellite imagery that is furnished by GoogleEarth. Finally, the photo is anchored to a map and its relevance is now apparent to other equestrian endurance riders.
For working examples, here are about 200 equestrian trail photos:
and....your AERC friends will greatly rejoice with your meaningful photos (as opposed to junky photos with vague information that others utilize.)
