Northerly Island, on the east side of Burnham Harbor, about a ½ mile across the harbor, east of Soldier Field (where the Chicago Bears [football team] play). ~ View On Black

 

Northerly Island used to be Miegs Air Field. A little airport that Mayor Daley had put to the bulldozer and dug up in the middle of the night, July 20, 2006. One evening it’s an airport; the next morning it ain’t. Just like that.

 

I loved this midnight raid as the airport wouldn’t allow people to use the area (for biking, walking, fishing, picnicking, breathing, star-gazing, etc.). It also scared me (this 12:01 in the a.m., full-metal jacket, frontal assault) because, next time, this display of political will and power could just as easily be used against something I like or treasure.

 

www.youtube.com/watch?v=vT1fzsFqfIM – sounds of a prairie

 

But done was done: with no going back. So, there was no need, or desire for recourse, when you’re on the side that benefited from such action. There was no, and probably never will be, any recourse for the other guys. I do know, however, that good-luck-and-bad-luck, gain-and-loss, are two eerily, similar-looking sides of the same coin. So I do gloat privately at the rich man's loss of a private airfield on public land, but such feelings are hidden behind a real "concern for the due process of law."

 

I think that is called a moral or philosophical ambiguity.

 

Northerly island has been slowly morphing into a nature area, a prairie of sorts; semi-consciously designed now for more passive uses (walking, biking on the road, sitting, looking at nature, fishing) than for aggressive activities (airplanes or anything involving wacking a ball around).

 

Northerly Island is actually a peninsula. It sits between Lake Michigan to the east, while to the west, the inexorable march of money throws longer and longer silhouettes on the Island’s western shore – in the form of taller and taller buildings as the skyward reaching skyline of Chicago creeps ever closely the Island's way

 

There's that coin thing, I think.

 

But, for now, the moon rises over Lake Michigan, big as a supper plate held at arms length, bright as a flashlight shone in the eye. Birds fly about at dusk, insects too: each in search of bits of food tinier than themselves. Animals – real animals; not cats, dogs, squirrels and pigeons – scamper, bound, swoop, hover and clamber about.

 

If you care to look, there will be little bitty bones, bits of fur and bone-dry, empty carapaces slung about in the morning; remnants of the circle of life, circling, catching and eating itself. Water slaps at the shore, wind whistles through leaves, and with true, but quiet grit, stars will manage against the odds, to power their way through light polluted skies.

 

Out here, at least, Life (the kind before cities expelled it) once again runs at full gallop.

 

Bird-watchers, watch. Fishermen, fish. Walkers, walk. The spirit, revitalizes. As for those other ones, the hurried ones - the one’s who are just realizing that they haven’t breathed all day, well, they stop and breathe. So simple a thing...this breathing....yes? No?

 

The Island allows one to feel more human, more connected to this earth than does standing in any one of our manicured parks or kept up beaches; more connected even than when sitting comfortably on the couch, wine glass in hand, viewing the scene through a bay window on the 45th floor of a luxury condo with a Lake view (although the real estate marketing ads might beg to differ).

 

And, we people – just regular people, everyday, plain people, people without money, or political or social clout – get to experience it at ground level.

 

Come see it while it lasts.

 

From the movie, “Dances with Wolves.”

 

Major Fambrough: With your hero's record Sir Good Knight, you can have picked any assignment. Why did you choose such an isolated place? You wish to see the frontier?

A cold morning during the month of January.

 

Taken early in the morning. I love the contrast of the snow sprinkled on the pine tree, the different tones of blue in the sky, and the sun trying to appear and scape the clouds and heavy fog.

 

I certainly like better the warm days, but winter also give us a fantastic show. A little bit more, and we are going to enjoy spring here in this part of America, and I can't wait!

 

An artistic filter was added, and also a very light texture.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  

I enjoy nature photography the most, since I love the outdoors and long hiking trips. Macro photography is a true passion for me, since I get to watch a miniature world that opens without limits, before the camera makes the funny sound.

 

Graphic design is another way to express myself. I love reinventing a photo that I have seen in different ways. Sometimes, I use my own textures to do so.

The Minden area (Northwest Germany) is full of old mills (wind, water, horse, oil) maintained by volunteers and private owners. Whit Monday is traditionally the day when most of the more than 40 mills are open to the public. This year we took the windmill of Eickhorst and the river mill in Minden city for a visit.

The sun has just disappeared from view, leaving behind the subtle shades of many colours which paint the darkening clouds and the sky. Gentle breeze gives the evening air a suddenly chilly feel, while a swan gracefully glides across the water. Within a few moments this scene passes, replaced with increasing darkness. Fleeting, but intense beauty!

Maiden's Tower

 

The Maiden's Tower (Turkish: Kız Kulesi), also known as Leander's Tower (Tower of Leandros) since the medieval Byzantine period, is a tower lying on a small islet located at the southern entrance of the Bosphorus strait 200 m (220 yd) from the coast of Üsküdar in Istanbul, Turkey.

 

History

After the naval victory at Cyzicus, the Ancient Athenian general Alcibiades possibly built a custom station for ships coming from the Black Sea on a small rock in front of Chrysopolis (today's Üsküdar).[2] In 1110 Byzantine Emperor Alexius Comnenus built a wooden tower protected by a stone wall.[2] From the tower an iron chain stretched across to another tower erected on the European shore, at the quarter of Mangana in Constantinople.[2] The islet was then connected to the Asiatic shore through a defense wall, whose underwater remains are still visible.[2] during the siege of Constantinople in 1453, the tower held a Byzantine Garrison commanded by the Venetian Gabriele Trevisano.[2] After the conquest of the city, Sultan Mehmet II used the structure as a watch tower.[2] The tower, mistakenly known as Leander's Tower after the legend of Hero and Leander (which took place in the Dardanelles), was destroyed during the earthquake of 1509, and burned in 1721.[2] Since then it was used as a lighthouse, and the surrounding walls were repaired in 1731 and 1734, until in 1763 it was erected using stone.[2] From 1829 the tower was used as a quarantine station, and in 1832 was restored by Sultan Mahmud II.[2] Restored again by the harbour authority in 1945,[2] the most recent restoration began in 1998, and steel supports were added around the ancient tower as a precaution after the 17 August 1999 earthquake.[3]

The interior of the tower has been transformed into a popular café and restaurant, with an excellent view of the former Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman capital.[4] Private boats make trips to the tower several times a day.[5]

It is Christmas break for me too. I am home, no money after Christmas (who has?), lazing about, seriously starting to think and work towards getting my images into brick-and-mortar and online galleries in 2013 (gotta' start making this shit pay some of its own way - and I wish a new D800 Nikon :-)))).

 

I've been on Flickr less than usual and that is kinda' ok too. I admit to being a bit sluggish and uninspired towards the act of creating and working on images this winter season. I have brain-drain or a "flat-lined creative mind" after a year of heat, work and personal challenges, I think.

So with little inspiration from within, I must seek from without.

 

I ran across one of Paul Grand's tutorials. It is from at least five years ago I think. www.flickr.com/photos/paulgrand/7415209220/in/photostream/ - Paul too, has been a long time texture and creative inspiration to me.

 

I shot a series of beach scenes one "trying-to-be rainy" day in early December 2012 (it has been warm and dry here, and thus no snow). It was still a nippy 35 degrees out, and my uncovered ears and clean bean felt every degree of it. These clouds looked wet, but as they descended they turned out to be quite foggy and misty, but they held no rain.

 

As I shot the scene I had vague thoughts of doing something texturely with them, but I had no concrete idea as to what that might be.

 

This image seemed to be good to use for one of his texture suggestion lessons. I didn't have his image as a visual guide, so I just the followed his printed text recipe. He lists the name of the texture, the blending mode and opacity adjustments. I laid these out and then tweaked afterward, adding burning, dodging, and a gradient layer. But the basic order, and overall flavor of the work is his inspiration.

 

All textures are from Flypaper Texture

 

Apple Blush - Overlay 66%

Caramel Soft - Hard Light 22%

Base Layer copy - Soft Light 15%

Raw Linen - Color Burn 19%

Icarus Haze - Soft Light 35%

Black-to-Clear gradient layer - Hard Light 20% (for the sky)

Base Layer copy - Soft Light 35%

The beach just behind the building where I work: the South Shore Cultural Center. And as with many such gifts that stare us right in the face in our lives, the people who work here barely use it. In a city of 2.8 or 2.9 million, there was - as there often is here - only me.

 

There are two, ringed, stone, fire pits just before the trees end (under the last clump trees on the left). You are sheltered under a canopy of branches and leaves - some what of a cathedral of green effect - but you have a 270 degree view of the Lake. I shall celebrate the Vernal Equinox, March 20, 2013 with an evening fire ceremony.

MUSIC: Spice Girls - Say You'll Be There

Spice Girls - Who Do You Think You Are

 

Spice Girls- Girl Power live in Istanbul 1997

 

Yesterday was Full Moon, and I had called and been allowed to come up in a private apartment on the 2nd floor of photographing UTZON center in Aalborg, but when I called to get in touch with the lady I could not take her, so I went ahead to HOUSE OF THE MUSIC which has just been inaugurated. There was only about 300 meters there, and as the blue hour had just arrived, I began to photograph. It was dry weather, but only 4 degrees with a slightly strong winds. The full moon was up and I walked around the area to find a suitable POV. Camera equipment had to be rigged, so I went into the heat of the House of Music. When I came out, the moon disappeared behind some clouds, so I decided to photograph the beautiful building from scratch in about 2 hours.

 

The tourist office can maybe use it if I manage to take a similar picture with many happy people everywhere. Of course I will try, but it will be very difficult, as the recording here is 15 sec.

  

House of Music is a concert hall in Aalborg, and it includes concert hall and practice rooms for Aalborg Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Academy of Music. House of Music is located at the Music Room at the fjord on an old port area at Nordkraft. Construction began in July 2010 and first moved into the house 1 July 2013. The house was inaugurated. March 29, 2014 with great opening concert and the largest fyrvækerishow to end of day.

 

In January 2014 published by House of Music its opening program, consisting of 30 concerts in 13 days of blah. Jamie Cullum, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra and of course Aalborg Symphony Orchestra. Only two months after the opening of the House of Music is the great Danish organ made by Marcussen & Son opened with a concert by the renowned organist John Scott.

 

In April-May 2014, the house will be home to the world's largest Wagner singing competition The Lauritz Melchior International Singing Competition to be electing the world's best opera singer in Richard Wagner's music.

A 365 outtake from months ago.

 

Had this on my photostream as private for a few days, can't work out whether I like it or not.

The clouds are 'real' by the way, I hung them up :D

 

In the last few days I have been on long bike rides, trying to find good places to photograph. I am in Finland and as you may know this land is filled with lakes which offer plenty of opportunities for photographers. However, it is not always easy to find good locations (because lakes might be surrounded with private properties etc). Few local photographers kindly helped me out and shared their knowledge. I just hope I have enough good light and time to capture these places. I will share one image from this trip with you. More to come..

***************

 

Hello folks. I know it's been a VERY long time since my last post here. I just checked and it was about 3 months ago in fact. I know for some that would lead to cardiac arrest, the thought of photographing for months and not posting anything online. As much as I enjoy technology and our modern day tools I also believe in breaks from constant online interaction, it's healthy for the mind and soul. That said I pretty much feel off the social media map this summer. I cannot complain though. It's been a busy summer filled workshops, private tours and quite a bit of family time with our new daughter. With all of that I did not get many personal photography trips but those that have taken a workshop or tour with me know that I enjoy that side of photography, seeing others learn and grow. I met some great folks in the process which is always a plus.

 

I did manage to still accumulate some new images for the portfolio over summer which is always good as well. Many have been processed and some still wait to be processed. This is one taken in between tours while staying in Central OR. It is also a perfect example of being ready to change your comp from horizontal to vertical on a moments notice. I had it all setup for a great horizontal image with a sky full of clouds. Then right at sunset the clouds moved fast and left a big empty spot with my horizontal comp that I did not care for here. I changed to vertical and this is what I ended up with. It's definitely not my fav from this summer but it' still a good keeper in my book.

 

Along the lines of new images. I have updated my new website (www.adrianklein.com) with this image and many others. I would post the link here but with Flickr's strict and bewildering rules about links to certain things within a post, it tells me I cannot do that. Feel free to check it out if you like. And I know I have not done a new podcast in sometime either. Hopefully a new one is coming soon. I look forward to checking out some of your photo streams from the summer. I am sure I have missed some great work posted here. As usual thanks for all comments!

 

Portfolio & Services

 

This past Thursday, I taught a private workshop in the San Francisco area. My student for the day, Mark Shaiken, had flown in from the Midwest to spend a few days in the city around his anniversary.

 

As we set up in Sausalito, a spot I had chosen after researching the tides and sunrise angles, I could tell that we had a chance at some color as the fog enveloped the Marin Headlands behind us. I took the opportunity to set up my camera for a few shots to get a feel for conditions and specifically to see how different filters would affect the scene as Mark wanted some instruction on his Singh-Ray filters.

 

As the sun had starting glowing a bit too harshly to the east, I noticed this transition of fog and clearer skies catching some late sunrise light. I used my Singh-Ray Vari-ND dialed to near max density to keep the exposure longer to help smooth the water. I angled my Singh-Ray reverse ND grad along the transition line of the fog and sky to help balance the light.

 

Mark, it was a pleasure to meet you and to have the opportunity to share some knowledge with you.

Ill be heading back here tomorrow to lead a private workshop with a gentleman from California who I am sure will be as amazed by these rolling hills as the rest of us. Then I'm off to do some shooting of my own to put the new D800 through it's paces...so far I have figured out how to turn it on...so I am well ahead of the curve. ;)

 

In other news.... my Mom has joined flickr to share her iPhone macro shots. Please do me a huge favor and jump over to welcome her and give her some support! You can find her here: www.flickr.com/photos/indiadawn/7350138250/in/contacts/ She would be happy to see you and already looks at many of your photographs regularly!

 

We have 2 workshops left this year and will be adding 1 day Seattle & Portland dates in the near future. Please get in touch with me to discuss any private workshop events you may be interested in this summer!

(History from Wikipedia)

 

After the naval victory at Cyzicus, the Ancient Athenian general Alcibiades possibly built a custom station for ships coming from the Black Sea on a small rock in front of Chrysopolis (today's Üsküdar). In 1110 Byzantine Emperor Alexius Comnenus built a wooden tower protected by a stone wall. From the tower an iron chain stretched across to another tower erected on the European shore, at the quarter of Mangana in Constantinople. The islet was then connected to the Asiatic shore through a defense wall, whose underwater remains are still visible. during the siege of Constantinople in 1453, the tower held a Byzantine Garrison commanded by the Venetian Gabriele Trevisano. After the conquest of the city, Sultan Mehmet II used the structure as a watch tower. The tower, mistakenly known as Leander's Tower after the legend of Hero and Leander (which took place in the Dardanelles), was destroyed during the earthquake of 1509, and burned in 1721. Since then it was used as a lighthouse, and the surrounding walls were repaired in 1731 and 1734, until in 1763 it was erected using stone. From 1829 the tower was used as a quarantine station, and in 1832 was restored by Sultan Mahmud II. Restored again by the harbour authority in 1945, the most recent restoration began in 1998, and steel supports were added around the ancient tower as a precaution after the 17 August 1999 earthquake.

The interior of the tower has been transformed into a popular café and restaurant, with an excellent view of the former Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman capital. Private boats make trips to the tower several times a day.

This was one of the first images I took at Boscombe Pier on the day we visited Boscombe beach. Following the huge downpour the decking is still soaking wet and puddles of water can be clearly seen. The cloud cover was still thick and the light quality surreal.

“Ah, Hope! what would life be, stripped of thy encouraging smiles, that teach us to look behind the dark clouds of to-day, for the golden beams that are to gild the morrow.”

(Quote by Susanna Moodie(1803–1885), British born Canadian author)

 

Each word from this quote reflect in the Ganges, here in Varanasi (Benaras), the oldest living city in the world, where each face, each hand, each smile or gesture are golden ray of light.

I feel that all this grace is connected to the deepest part of humanity that we all carry from generation to generation and there is no doubt that there is something there teaching to look ahead as if the following days should be shining.

Not many have light painted the historic Mormon Row house at night while capturing the Milky Way above so this past July I did just that all by my lonesome ... it would have been nice to have had the company of someone else in that darkness. I flashed my light around the area from time to time to see if the buffalo were browsing in as they have in the past as I didn't want to get surprised and turn in one direction only to see a bull in front of me.

Night sky / Milky Way photography in Jackson Hole, WY

In June 2016, I lead a three day sunrise to sunset photography workshop adventure during which I incorporate Milky Way night sky photography with the use of accent lights and light painting. Everyone loved it.

 

In 2017 I will conduct two 4 day photography workshops in Jackson Hole which will include 3 nights of milky way photography and three 4 hour Photoshop post processing sessions.

 

I will take my group carefully through the steps of how to set up their camera's settings and lens for great Milky Way shots while light painting the Moulton Barns along Mormon Row and other objects around the entire valley. All levels are welcome to attend.

 

If you are interested in attending, please send me an email to my Yahoo address or better yet send me a private message on Facebook. Hope to see you there.

 

▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀

Here is a list of the photography workshops I will conduct in 2017:

 

1. Arches National Park - March 25-29

2. Icons of the Southwest with Ryan Smith - April 23-27

3. Grand Teton National Park Spring Wildflowers - June 23-25

4. Grand Teton National Park Fall Colors - Sept. 20-24

The other day, my friend was nice enough to make a life-long dream of mine come true - fly! I've wanted to get my private pilot's license since I was 2ft tall. :-)

 

What an incredible experience. I had THE biggest smile on my face the entire time. Ultimate kid-in-a-candy store experience. I couldn't stop smiling if my life depended on it. :D

 

Now for the sidenote... This is an iPhone pic! (Sidenote sidenote: captain put the wrong battery into the 5D, and my film camera decided it didn't love me either (film never caught onto the spool apparently...@*($^!#))

 

:P

 

And yes, Iliveinadream. Most strategic dissertation topic decision ever? Uhhu (:

Shot at Belur. Thanks to heavy monsoons , we ended up on a private car journey from Mangalore to Bangalore. En route and unexpectedly we came to this historic spot called Belur.

 

Some of the most magnificentspecimens of South Indian temples are those attributed to the Hoysala dynasty of Karnataka....right here in Belur. This is the Channakeshava temple complex....all in stone and just magnificent.

 

the temples built in those days were not just limited to the cause of worship and religion. Infact a temple was built for five reasons, where apart from religion, it provided scope for a justice court, a treasure house, an institution to impart ethical education and fostered our various arts including music and dance.

I am happy to be busy.

 

The past week fellow Sea to Summit instructor Joshua Cripps and I taught a sold out 2-day coastal landscape photography workshop where we visited locations along the Santa Cruz and San Mateo coast. Sunday was quite the day. Sunrise on the bluffs overlooking Panther and Hole in the Wall beaches brought us some color and clouds. We then headed up towards Pescadero State Beach for a mid-morning shoot. We really lucked out in that the indoor post processing lecture coincided with some of the first rain of the season. Sunset was spent at the extreme south end of Hole in the Wall Beach as the storm clouds evaporated before our eyes.

 

I had the pleasure of playing tour guide to a client from Toronto on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this past week. We hit it off great and spent many hours exploring and photographing the coast. Needless to say, all the 4-5am wake ups and 10pm-midnight bed times knocked me out. But caffeine binges helped with that. :) The diner where we ate most of our meals has a great sign. It reads:

 

"Instant human, just add coffee."

 

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead. I have another private workshop this Sunday and then I will be showing my prints the weekends of October 8-9 and 15-16. More info on that later.

 

As for the image, a storm rolled through with lightning and rainbows two years ago. This is post sunset shot from the bluffs above Hole in the Wall beach as the clouds ripped open.

Thanks to the “Olympic promotion” by the German Railways, I was able to visit many German cities in February. Whenever the German Olympians won a gold medal, I had a free first class train ride through Germany the next day. Now, in February the weather is of course not always the best, so I always had a look on the weather forecast the evening before. When Germany won the first medal, the weather map didn’t look so good. But over Dresden the clouds should break up now and again, so the decision was made.

 

I arrived in Dresden quite early, around lunchtime, but the weather was disappointing. Everything was gray in gray and the city therefore not too photogenic. But well, just visit the Frauenkirche, let the time pass and wait for the blue hour. When it was finally time for the blue hour, I had to run to capture all the sites. I got quite some funny looks pulled on me when I was running with my tripod through the city, but who cares.

 

The photos and the subjects were well worth it. On the way back from the Frauenkirche to the opera I had already everything what I wanted captured on memory card and could slow down – until I turned around. Then I saw the dome of the Frauenkirche shine over the golden alleys of Dresden. So just one last photo before running back to the train station…

I like this photo for many reasons, the reflections of the trees, the running water, the different shades of blue, the dry leaves, and I guess every element that takes part in this composition.

 

While working on this image, I started to think about the death tree. I thought about birds, small animals and humans enjoying it while it was alive, and I felt glad that it still is surrounded by living ones, beautiful nature and I'm sure is still helpful to tired birds taking a break on their way somewhere...

 

While I wait for Spring, I'm still cleaning past years files, and putting aside the ones I like best. I hope you'll like this one.

 

I'm soooo ready for Spring!

Nature inspired me to become a photographer. I specially love trees, birds and flowers, but there is so much to see, enjoy and capture during a long hiking trip, a lake, a conservation area, forest or park, that I wouldn’t have the space or time to write about every single thing!

 

Graphic design is another way to express myself. I love reinventing a photo that I have seen, in different ways. I use Photoshop to do these transformations, and I also my own photos to create textures.

We spent four nights staying in a well-appointed cottage on a coffee farm in upcountry Maui, which I highly recommend if you prefer a more relaxed and private vacation than the large resorts. What a treat to watch the sun sink behind the clouds.

 

If you've been counting, you know that this is the last day of 10 of my favorite Maui sites and activities. If you have enjoyed them, don't worry, as more will show up in my photo stream in the future.

 

I'm in New Mexico for a short visit with my family, so will post and comment as time permits. Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

 

Thanks, as always, for stopping by and for all of your kind comments -- I appreciate them all.

I spent about 10 days this summer on the OR Coast leading workshops and tours, mixed with some personal time as well. Summer can be a tough one weather wise, normally no rain but the inversion can keep the shoreline socked in with fog and clouds for days straight. Of course the other times of the year a sunset can be grand only if you are not rained out. This was one of two decent sunsets during my summer outings on the coast. I was with a couple during a private tour and needless to say they were thrilled that the marine layer broke up just enough at sunset to let the light through. Thanks for taking a look.

Due to more strict enforcement of their rules, Flickr has asked me and many others to take down all links for selling prints and the like. However, it is still allowed to have such information in one's Flickr Profile.

The Golden Temple (informal name in Sikhism), is the most sacred and holiest shrine of Sikhism (the holy-of-holies of Sikhism).

The official name of the Temple in Sikhism is: Harmandir Sahib or Darbar Sahib, (Punjabi: ਹਰਿਮੰਦਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ ) which means literally (Harmandir Sahib meaning: The Abode of God).

It is located in Amritsar (meaning: The Pool of the Nectar of Immortality), the holiest city in Sikhism, in the state of Punjab, India.

Sikh devotees, for whom the Temple is a symbol of infinite freedom and spiritual independence, come to the Temple from all over the world to enjoy its environs and offer their prayers.

 

The Gold plating on the Golden temple makes it so unique and the reflection in the water gives an etherial beauty to the whole complex.

 

When I come to Amritsar for my work I try to come there everyday.

I took this picture two days ago at dusk when I saw this man who was following the evening prayer which started inside the Temple and that we could all listen outside.

 

If Heaven exits I wish it looks like this...

Since many years I wanted to take a few pictures of the Taj Mahal from the other side of the Yamuna river and a few days ago I could at last do it while I was going by car from Delhi to Lucknow.

Rabindranath Tagore once said that this wonder of the world was "A tear drop in the face of eternity", these words allow me to fly away with the birds and to open a new ethereal dream, under a mysterious moonlight...

A special thanks to everyone who attended this weekend's workshop in the Palouse. We had a great time and hope that all of you did also. The light on Friday was less than desirable and Saturday morning was overcast. Saturday night we made one more trip up to Steptoe Butte hoping for some nice light and we were not disappointed! Everyone was able to spend a solid hour searching for the best compositions in the hills below. For those who want to know, the fields are behind by a couple of weeks and the flowers are at peak right now. If you have the opportunity to get out there, you should do it. You'll be glad you did. I have one person interested in sharing the cost of a private 2 day workshop here in the next two weeks. If this is you, let me know and I will fill you in on the details.

Summer Day View of Queenstown from Bob's Peak, New Zealand.

 

Surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is New Zealand’s premier four season lake and alpine resort.

 

Queenstown is an international resort town in Otago in the south-west of New Zealand's South Island. It is built around an inlet on Lake Wakatipu, a long thin lake formed by glacial processes that is shaped like a staggered lightning bolt, and has spectacular views of nearby mountains.

“The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness; and knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.”

(Kahlil Gibran - Lebanese born American philosophical Essayist, Novelist and Poet. 1883-1931)

 

"The City has been known by various names thoughout its long history, but the oldest and most common of these are still Varanasi and Kashi.

In the remote past, it was generally held that Kashi and Varanasi had different connotations.

While Kashi was the name of the kingdom, Varanasi was its capital, as we find during the age of Shodasha Mahajanapada.

In the present day the names Kashi and Varanasi are interchangeable.

 

According to one school, the name Varanasi originated from its location between Varuna and Nashi, which was later called Asi.

Another suggests that the City took its name from the Varuna River, which was formerly called Varunasi or Varanasi.

While the Chinese corruptions of Varanasi are Pho-lo-nai and Po-lo-nisse, as set by Fa Hien and Hiuen Tsang respectively, the Muslim name from the time of their occupation of the City was Banaras, which continues today.

Benares is the British variation that has been handed down to the present generation and is still frequently used by many.

 

According to some, Kashi comes from Kasha, the name of an ancient Hindu King who ruled the City.

Others believe that the name simply comes from a kind of tall grass, kaska, whic once grew abundantly along the riverbank.

Then again, according to the Kashi Khandam, the name has been derived from the Sanskrit root “kash”, meaning “to shine”, “to look brilliant” or “beautiful”.

Hence Kashi, or what is sometimes called Kashika, is a place where the light, signifying Shiva himself, shines.

This City of Light then is essentially “the city of enlightenment which libarates souls”.

 

Varanasi has also been called by various other names in the Hindu scriptures, e.g., Avimukta (the never-forsaken), the Anandavana (the forest of bliss), Rudravasa (the city of Shiva), Mahashmashana (the great cremation ground) and Jitwari (a place where business is highly profitable).

 

The Jatakas also record various names for the City including Surundhana, Sudarshana, Brahmavardhana,, Pushpavati, Rammanagar, Molini and others.

The Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb changed the name to Muhammadabad and also set up a mint from which coins were issued with the intent to disgrace both Hinduism and this centre of Hinduism.

This new name remained confined to government documents, however, and this too only for a short time-till the demise of Aurangzeb..."

On our Saturday drive it was still 31C at 6pm so I suggested we detour and head to the beach. The water was still so calm in the Northumberland Strait compared to what we had expected with Hurricane Bil on the way. When we got to the beach there was a gate saying it was closed, but we went anyway and had a great time with only a handful of people on the beach. I just loved the glow of colors at that time of day..

and sorry for posting two at once...i meant to keep the other one marked 'private" till later..

Going through the archives this morning and found this image from approximately 6 months ago. I remember the day like it was yesterday.

 

A group of us arrived well before the crack of dawn at the Deering Estate in Miami to photograph the sunrise. While it's always a thrill to be anywhere just moments prior to the sun making its first appearance, there are few places that are more iconic for south Florida than here. With the palm trees all lined up, as if they were in a procession towards the estate, I sat and found it hard to even shoot ... it was that beautiful. The colors displaying were such a varied sight ... oranges, blues, pinks, yellows, reds, even purples... it was unreal to think that, in the day, this was someones private view! It was such a visual dilemma ... do I shoot in an attempt to capture this beauty for another day ... or do I simply stop and sit back and soak it all in right now in the moment? Even better, can I achieve both? LOL

 

I choose this image today, as we near my favorite day of the week ... Friday ... which represents the dawn of the weekend ahead and the promise of many photographic opportunities. Hope that you enjoy the view!

 

Thanks for stopping by to view and for your thoughts and comments shared.... especially at a time when many of us are struggling to make our way through all of these flickr changes.

Maiden's Tower

 

The Maiden's Tower (Turkish: Kız Kulesi), also known as Leander's Tower (Tower of Leandros) since the medieval Byzantine period, is a tower lying on a small islet located at the southern entrance of the Bosphorus strait 200 m (220 yd) from the coast of Üsküdar in Istanbul, Turkey.

 

History

After the naval victory at Cyzicus, the Ancient Athenian general Alcibiades possibly built a custom station for ships coming from the Black Sea on a small rock in front of Chrysopolis (today's Üsküdar).[2] In 1110 Byzantine Emperor Alexius Comnenus built a wooden tower protected by a stone wall.[2] From the tower an iron chain stretched across to another tower erected on the European shore, at the quarter of Mangana in Constantinople.[2] The islet was then connected to the Asiatic shore through a defense wall, whose underwater remains are still visible.[2] during the siege of Constantinople in 1453, the tower held a Byzantine Garrison commanded by the Venetian Gabriele Trevisano.[2] After the conquest of the city, Sultan Mehmet II used the structure as a watch tower.[2] The tower, mistakenly known as Leander's Tower after the legend of Hero and Leander (which took place in the Dardanelles), was destroyed during the earthquake of 1509, and burned in 1721.[2] Since then it was used as a lighthouse, and the surrounding walls were repaired in 1731 and 1734, until in 1763 it was erected using stone.[2] From 1829 the tower was used as a quarantine station, and in 1832 was restored by Sultan Mahmud II.[2] Restored again by the harbour authority in 1945,[2] the most recent restoration began in 1998, and steel supports were added around the ancient tower as a precaution after the 17 August 1999 earthquake.[3]

The interior of the tower has been transformed into a popular café and restaurant, with an excellent view of the former Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman capital.[4] Private boats make trips to the tower several times a day.[5]

...just some more pretty clouds..I was going to take out the gate but found it rather appealing and left it. Have a great day...sorry I haven't been online much~

The village of Crayke, in Hamilton district of North Yorkshire, rises from the surrounding countryside to a hill. The village is built around the slopes of that hill and on top is built, Crayke Castle.

The view from there on a Spring day is wonderful.

 

Crayke Castle

The present building was constructed around 1450 for Robert Neville, Bishop of Durham on land which had belonged to the See of Durham since Saxon times. Up to the time of James I the castle was surrounded by a deer park. During the Civil War the castle was slighted by the Parliamentarians and sold to Sir William Allanson, a former Mayor and MP of York. Allanson’s son Charles repaired and restored the main building to the condition it remains in to this day. Around 1667 the manor was restored to the See of Durham to be leased out as a farmhouse to various people until Bishop William van Mildert was allowed by Parliament to sell it into private hands in 1827. It was temporarily requisitioned as a Land Army barracks in the Second World War.
