The mother ship of lenticular clouds preparing for landing over Mount Shasta.
Zo'n 56 meter hoog is deze hoogste 'berg' van Drenthe !!
De zgn. VAM-berg (Vuil Afvoer Maatschappij; tegenwoordig Attero) is een enorme storthoop geweest, die nu afgedekt is met schone aarde en gras. De aarde kwam van het Mantingerzand en het 'Groote Veld' ten noorden van Nieuw-Balinge, waar Natuurmonumenten gronden heeft afgegraven ten behoeve van het plan 'Goudplevier'.
In 2001 heeft Natuurmonumenten op de top een info-centrum ingericht, De Blinkerd genaamd. Het uitzicht is grandioos !
Wandelroutes waren er al, maar ná de zomer van dit jaar wordt de berg óók voor fietsers opengesteld ! Voor wielerwedstrijden was dit al het geval; de 'Ronde van Drenthe' trekt hier jaarlijks overheen !
De VAM-berg ligt ten noorden van Hoogeveen en net onder Wijster.

Basking temporarily in the afternoon sun a pair of DRS class 68s, 68016 "Fearless" and 68017 "Hornet", stand at Valley Station, Anglesey having just reversed out of the nuclear flask loading facility a couple of hundred yards behind me. The train is the 14.58 Valley Nuclear - Crewe (6K41), and eventually left 53 minutes ahead of schedule, apparently not uncommon for this working.
Taken from the Station Road level crossing, it's a straightforward record shot but worth it, I thought, to capture the station building and starter signal.
Quite a display when it got going - both engines were under power and a more than impressive acceleration way from the station!

Discovered a great little rocky outcrop and viewpoint yesterday whilst at Fisherman's Bay, NSW; Australia for a sunrise shoot.
I took a series of images around this spot trying different compositions and POV's - I climbed higher for this composition to overlook the little rocky cove to the left and the ocean and colorful sunrise stretched beyond - hope you like it!!
I used a shorter exposure to retain some shape to the waves that were rolling in and timed it to capture the receding water around the rocks in the little cove below!!
I had a tough time keeping my Lee grad filter free of condensation from the changing air temperature - plenty of wiping!!
Hope you're having a wonderful day and weekend!
*** Recommend to view LARGE on Black!! ***
Thanks for any comments, viewings or favorites for this and any of my other images!!!
Additional info: Lee .6 ProGlass + Lee .9 Hard Grad filters used here.
Late afternoon walk along part of the Cleveland way. From Captain Cooks Monument to Roseberry Topping.
It seemed that this duck had an exhausting day. It wasn't interrested the slightest on what happened around it.
....at Nazare on Portugal's Atlantic coast.
