First thing in the graveyard (1) Making the most of the early mist again! Taken on Fuji X100s
Not far from Hopetoun Falls, (Great Otway National Park), stands a small forest of Californian Redwoods. They were planted in 1938 & is the only stand of these trees in Australia. These trees are only 87yrs old but they are pretty impressive. The couple in the background give some sense of scale.

I have been in complete inaction for the past few months. Work-wise things are kinda on the outs and so it has managed to dismantle my resolve to keep up with photography. Now I know how difficult it is to keep up with what you wanna do..inspite of loving it so much. I wonder how you all manage it better than I do...I wish it continues to be that way for all of you :)
So I finally managed to dig something up from my archives..I am yet to even venture outside for a shoot..I hope it happens soon enough...This was shot while I was in the US...actually at the fag end of my stay over there.
When I knew I had to get back here, I decided to go to some of my favorite places. Ever since I knew about Monument Valley, I have always visualized myself being there amongst those wonderful mittens..Sunset is typically more beautiful over here than sun rises although I managed to get there for the day's dawn as well. This place is heavily visited by a lota people from all over the world..and rightly so. It is a breathtaking view. This is a cliched view of the valley itself for that I apologize.
I had scouted for different foregrounds all day and managed a few more from other places which I will try and post it someday soon :) The glow of the rocks in the evening sun is just how I imagined it will be. I am not a fan of these red rocks without a reason...nowhere else will you be able to see these radiant and vibrant looking colors. The sun gradually descends into the valley while I stood there just speechless...well not that I had company to talk to anyway :P but there are times when you dont want anyone with you...this was certainly one of those times :)
I really wish I had spent more time going through all your wonderful work. i hope to get more regular starting next year. Till then, I will be on and off. I had the chance to view some of your work..I am amazed how much each of you have managed in this short time...kudos!!
I am really looking forward to catch up with all of your work..slowly but surely!! have a nice weekend!!
Castlerigg Stone Circle in the UK Lake District. It consists of 38 stones, some as high as 5" 0" high, set in a rough circle with a 360 degree panorama of magnificent fells (hills).
It was built around 3200BC and there are stories of strange lights being seen here.
But not while I was there.
I will be away from Flickr Thursday, September 3, to be with my hubby, Mike, who is having some extensive medical tests. If you have questions ask Martian Cat. I may be on later in the evening. Thank you. JJ
Friends please feel free to download this texture if you need it for photoart.

I am still trying to catch up with all of your streams but I guess it'll take some time because I am blessed with the world's slowest internet connection:-)
The Cis & I wish you all a beautiful day!

Sliders Sunday ... HSS! Fiddling around with colours, saturation, some HDR and, a little Droste effect ..!
In the center of this photo U may notice a tiny litle village. It is called Borg and its where I was born and raised. The surroundings are quite spectacular and the light is really incredible during most of the different seasons. I do hope that some of the flickr family once in their lifetime could take the possibility and visit a few of theese beautiful islands to see for themselves- And if U need guiding, just give me a call :)
The Scottish National Monument. This monument was intended to be another Parthenon and to commemorate Scottish Soldiers killed in the Napoleonic wars. Construction started in 1826 but work was stopped in 1829 when the building was only partially built due to lack of money. It has never been completed. For many years this failure to complete led to its being nicknamed "Scotland's Disgrace" but this name has waned given the time elapsed since the Napoleonic Wars and it is now accepted for what it is.
This was the last shot I took as we drove away from Monument Valley at around 7.35pm local time.
NB: in all these shots, these are the colours that came out of the camera. Only minor cropping and levels adjustments in PS.
Can't do Monument Valley without giving it the Vortex stars treatment!
Enjoy this surreal image

Plymouth's war memorial and the statue of one of England's greatest sea heroes, Sir Frances Drake. Drake was born in Tavistock, Devon in 1540 and was a sea captain, privateer, navigator and politician of the Elizabethan age. Elizabeth I awarded Drake a knighthood in 1581. He was second-in-command of the English fleet against the Spanish Armada in 1588 and died of dysentery in January 1596.

Tagging will be done when Flickr restores the funktionality of fast and easy tagging, the present (new) system is a real pain in the ass!!
Classic, evening view of the "Mittens" in Monument Valley, Navajo Nation. This was taken during the same session as an image posted earlier which had a shorter focal length. There were 10 or so photographers in front of these foreground rocks which are on the edge of the visitor center parking lot.

This was the scene behind me as I shot the beginning of sunrise at Monument Valley on the Arizona-Utah border (see previous post). This is one of those rare places where it seems like everywhere you look there's a picture.
Las orillas del Ebro a su paso por Zaragoza, desde su margen izquierda permiten un recorrido monumental de la ciudad. En la igan y desde la izquierda, la torre de la Seo El Salvador, La Lonja, el Ayuntamineto, el Puente de Piedra y, por supuesto, la Basíslica del Pilar.
I found this cross erected not far off the forestry trunk road near Nordegg. I have no idea what this little shrine is for...perhaps someone was killed in a car accident in this area....But if that was the case, the crosses are usually closer to the road. This was a fair distance from the road.
