For Lowell Goudge re "Dino" from Drumheller......
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 03-26-2008, 10:37 PM

......we went back to Drumheller yesterday and I had a look at the visitor reception centre and the photo that you had posted earlier in response to my thread is indeed a photo of the current "Dino". I had never looked at it from that perspective so did not recognize it.

Here are a couple of the same subject.





The inside walk up to the viewing area is 110 steps and this is the view from inside the Dinos mouth. As you can see spring is not quite here yet, the river is still frozen and they are still making snow at the ski hill.



Here are a few more from the Royal Tyrrell Museum:










All are with the K10D and the 16-45. Exif is intact and comments are always appreciated,

Thank you Dave, a trip to Drumheller would be a good idea but do take time there is too much to see for one day especially if you want to spend some time outdoors as well.
For us it is easy, a good hours drive gets us there so we go often.

Take care,

Thank you for the nice comments, from Calgary International about two hours and from Edmonton I don't really know my guestimate would be 3 1/2 to four hours.

Take care,

Quite a fun series of images. The dinosaur statues certainly look powerful and overwhelming.

You seem to travel to a lot of places, Heinrich!

Thanks for looking and commenting, powerful and overwhelming it may be and tourist seem to really like them but for my taste it's a little on the tacky side.

We travel whenever the finance minister says that we can afford it.

Take care,

As I recall, when I visited in 2004, I walked around for quite some time trying to figure the best shot of the big boy.

Glad I made you go back and look, the two make quite a pair.

I like your shot from inside looking out

Thank you Lowell, our grandson makes sure that we go there at least every other month but as a rule we don't stop at the visitor reception centre. This week he had a buddy along that had not been in a few years so we had to do the whole tour.

Take care,
