Hey, thanks! I just saw this (been away too long!).

One sorta funny thing in this article is that I wrote I used a B+W circular polarizer (brand name), but whoever edited the article at OP put it as "black and white circular polarizer", ha ha! Not sure what that is.

It's sorta like the editors at National Geographic Adventure magazine when they wrote in my text for my Mono Lake paddling image that I was surrounded by 15,000' peaks! It went to print that way and I asked them about it and they said the highest peak is 14,490+, which is close enough to 15,000', so they just rounded up. Well, the peaks around Mono Lake are more in the 12,000' range, but even so, that's like saying Base Camp at Mt. Everest is surrounded by 30,000' peaks. I'm not sure 'rounding up' is a good idea when it exceeds the highest peak in the entire region (or the world). But hey, I was still thankful and they corrected it in the online version.

I'm gonna start requesting to review the final edit version before publication, ha!
It's all about the WILDERNESS!!!
