They won the East Coast Music award for group of the year in 2002. The quality of these photos is not the best as I was hand holding a point and shoot.

The first one shows the Rocky Mountains, second taken at a higher altitude (notice roundness of earth) and the third is a subdivision outside Calgary using zoom. These won't make National Geographic :) but, hopefully, make for interesting viewing.
