Thanks for the votes all.

Grazie mille,

Philippe

Congratulations to the man and his "country"

My having just spent Sunday a week ago on top of the Koppenberg with Philippe while he was waiving his Breton flag, I can think of no more appropriate winner than Philippe's Brittany report. I know that when most of us think of Philippe, we think of him as being "French." But, if you ask him he will tell you that he is a Breton (by way of Nashville, that is).

Congratulations, Philippe. I would post congratulations in Breton, but I left my English/Breton phrasebook at home.

Mark.

You had my vote from the start, in spite of your knocking the favorite of my own photos out in the first round. The quality of the photos in this winning thread, individually and collectively, blew away the competition.

Congratulations. Your photo essays are one of the main reasons I so relentlessly surf this site. I've even set a good half-dozen of your pics as wallpaper over the past few years. A toast: May your eye stay keen, your shooting finger limber and your Wanderlust lusty.

He's deserving of it

:) Of course, I do say he is a cheater living in some of the more scenic and gorgeous country(ies) that a roadbiker has the honor to visit. Just awesome!

Thanks all!

Scott, Ken, DrHoo, Alter, Mark, Mapai, Bigrider, Ridgetop, MJ Cmatcan and Kai Ming (whose posts I personally think are the best!) -- and all the others who have enjoyed my posts.

Taking the pictures is of course fun, and Ridgetop has it right in that I have some pretty spectacular riding in my backyard (Azerbaijan excluded, of course!) but if it weren't for this forum, I'd be subjecting my family and friends to countless slide shows. So, from them, let me share a huge thank you for allowing me to subject *you* to these pictures!!

Best,

Philippe
