    I enjoy the morning or evening shots more than the bright blue skys and white sands, this is more real to me..

    Very nice pictures, some (Especially the fiery evening skies) look like they belong in STALKER or Half Life :)

    Sorry for the delay, I have more than 1500 pictures so it takes a while to pick a few of them :)
    These all were taken during the GR20 trail. We went from Calvi (you can see it in the first picture below) to Corte.

    Re : Corsica

    That's why Corse is named "île de beauté" (Isle of beauty) in french...

    I'm glad you like the pics, Corsica really is a beautiful island. I have more pictures prepared for upload, stay tuned :)

    Stop It, what resolution would you like? I don't want to upload the original which is nearly 4 MB large.

    Er, as my desktop is widescreen at 1680 x 1050, I would say 1600 x 1200 would be ok, I'll stretch it to fit :)

    Thanks very much :)
