Default Photo with solar panels in background



Brian's excellent photo with the hydro-electirc dam a few weeks ago prompted me to take this today. It's certainly not as well shot as Brian's, but the point is the same...

Okay, I'm doing something wrong here. The image is on Flickr (you can see the url link), but the direct link doesn't take. Any suggestions? I've read the "how to" section, and it seemed pretty simple. Then again, I used to think politics were simple...

The forum software can only embed pictures with a photo (.jpg, .gif, etc.) extension. The easiest way to embed the photo is to do a right mouse click on the photo itself in Flickr and from the menu select "copy image URL" and use that as the link to embed the photo, rather than the URL from the browser when you are looking at the photo.


So here is the image URL for your photo: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7056/6941692451_6a82c8d7df_z.jpg

And here is the embedded picture:




PS. Nice photo! The solar panels on my house are 40 Feet up on a flat roof and have a super low profile, so the only way I can replicate your photo at my house is if Google Earth happens to take a photo of my house and the Karma at the same time.

Thanks Fab, I knew you'd come through. I think a much tighter shot, with Karma centered a little better and in the immediate foreground looking upward, will look better, but with all the tire spinning she did just to get into this position, I'll wait until spring...

FD - No, I never had any intention of driving her in the snow, so there was no reason to spend the money. That's why I bought the pickup you see over on the right. Forgot to mention I think the dog is scared of the "Tron" sound. He keeps barking everytime I turn it on...

No worries, all part of the services of your humble moderator. The view behind the house looks pretty impressive too, not a surprise for a house located in the mountains. Nice color selection for the Karma as well. I really like the Eclipse color, and not just because mine is that color.
