    Nice pics.

    But next time try to resize them. It's taking hell of a time to load.

    Hehe, well I'm not over there at this moment. I was there in march-july 2007 and in march-july 2008. If it was up to my CO I would have been there again at this moment. But I asked him if he could keep me here in the Netherlands for at least a year. So probably I have to go next year again.

    And sorry about the big pics Ivan le Fou. I will start resizing them. I have saved them on "maximum" quality. I will start "resizing" them to 70% of the quality.

    << EDIT >>
    I just finished uploading the "lower quality" pics. The original sizes varied between 3.5 MB and 5.5 MB. Now they are between 800 KB and 1200 KB. So now it should only take about 25% of the time to load them. Hopefully this is enough.

    Very cool indeed Philip, thanks for taking the time to post them. If you are planning to sell some of those pictures (which you could) or are just worried about copyright and all that, it would probably be a good idea to either watermark or resize them. But then we wouldnt have such awesome wallpapers, so don't listen to me.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    I am not interested in selling them or any copyrighted stuff. If somebody wants to use the pictures then they are free to do so. Only it would be nice if they inform me what they will be used for.

    The only thing which I would not like if they are getting used for negative purposes against the MoD or the mission in Afghanistan.

    Besided I do have much more good looking pics. Only it is too bad that you can recognise people on it easily.

    yea true but you dont have to blur the whole faces, eyes are good enough, and guys that wear sunglasses have there faces already coverd up.

    Unless the guys on the pictures give their permission to post it on the internet it's better not to. I'm not a fan of people over-reacting and screaming "PERSEC!!" when even a tiny bit of the face is left unblurred, but fact is that some people in the military did receive phonecalls and threaths because they had their name and face in the media or forums like this one. It's a sad thing, but for the sake of our guys just don't post the pictures that show faces (obviously with an exception for pictures that you took from the MOD website or other public media)

    Nice pics Eddy! I have some of these pictures too.

    The following picture was taken in april 2008. The engineers had to blow up a part of a hill top. That part was often used by spotters and a local gang of robbers. The explosion was impressive. 90 KG of explosives was used.

    The explosion took place on the other side of the hill so you can only see a part of the explosion But it still looks nice.
