Sizes of pictures

Thank you!

Thank you to all who have replied, telling me what size of picture you'd like to see on the web site.

Almost everybody who replied has asked for more pictures to be displayed at the largest size offered (longest side = 1536 pixels) so I'll try to find more photos that might display well at that size.
