The Ontario County Courthouse is located in Canandaigua, New York, United States. The United States v. Susan B. Anthony trial took place in this courthouse in 1873. It is a contributing property to the Canandaigua Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

The United States Capitol is the meeting place of the United States Congress, the legislature of the federal government of the United States. Located in Washington, D.C., it sits atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall. Though it has never been the geographic center of the federal district, the Capitol is the origin by which both the quadrants of the District are divided and the city was planned. Officially, both the east and west sides of the Capitol are referred to as "fronts." Historically, however, only the east front of the building was intended for the arrival of visitors and dignitaries.

Marcellus is a town in Onondaga County, New York, United States. The population was 6,210 at the 2010 census. The town was probably named after Marcus Claudius Marcellus, a Roman general, by a clerk interested in the Classics.

Last night I went to do a sunset at Holland State Park with Big Red. If anyone knows how to get a straight horizon and a straight looking lighthouse here please let me know, I believe it is nearly impossible

 

I took my daughter and my niece as they wanted to walk the pier and enjoy the sunset with me. Well really not with me as they really didn't want to be seen with me. But I did meet up with Dan Gomer out there and we had a good time shooting this sunset. I finally also got to meet Christopher K, a local photographer that I have been following for quite some time know. Nice to finally meet you Chris!!

 

Of course a trip to Holland with my daughter wouldn't be complete without a trip to Captain Sundae for an ice cream cone.

I forgot that I was working on this image. This was the first image of my aspen pano image. I remember looking at my LCD on my camera thinking this would be a nice single image. I started processing this last year and just had it sitting in my hard drive. I was looking at my master file folder the other day, and saw this and was like hey I remember this! As I started to work this image, I started liking it even more. It's strange how the weather works from year to year. I visited this exact same spot just last week and there was snow everywhere. Hope you guys enjoy this view. Thanks for the visit.

I think I will take a pause from posting shots of my USA trip for a month just for the sake of adding a little variety to my stream. I still have a lot of shots I want to post from that trip so I will probably return to that topic in the New Year.

 

As it’s the last one for a while thought it ought to be something quite grand. There can be few more iconic images from the United States that a view of Monument Valley. We spent a few hours touring about the area quite late in the day so the sun was on its way down I was pleased by the light on this shot and the toy cars give a good sense of scale

THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT HAVE A GREAT DAY

Just south of the Canadian border lies Grand Portage State park. It's home to the highest waterfall in Minnesota.

 

Per Wiki... Grand Portage State Park is a state park at the northeastern tip of Minnesota, USA, on the Canada–United States border. It contains a 120-foot (37 m) waterfall, the tallest in the state (though it is on the border with Canada and thus partially in Ontario), on the Pigeon River. The High Falls and other waterfalls and rapids upstream necessitated a historically important portage on a fur trade route between the Great Lakes and inland Canada. This 8.5-mile (13.7 km) path plus the site of forts on either end are preserved in nearby Grand Portage National Monument. The state park, held by the surrounding Grand Portage Indian Reservation and leased to the state of Minnesota for $1 a year, is the only U.S. state park jointly managed by a state and a Native American band. It is also the only Minnesota state park not owned by the state.

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore (Lakota Sioux name: Six Grandfathers) near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States.

Sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot (18 m) sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents: George Washington (1732–1799), Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826), Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919), and Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865). The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres (5.17 km2) and is 5,725 feet (1,745 m) above sea level.

Shiprock (Navajo: Tsé Bitʼaʼí, "rock with wings" or "winged rock" is a monadnock rising nearly 1,583 feet (482.5 m) above the high-desert plain of the Navajo Nation in San Juan County, New Mexico, United States. Its peak elevation is 7,177 feet (2,187.5 m) above sea level. It lies about 10.75 miles (17.30 km) southwest of the town of Shiprock, which is named for the peak.

 

Governed by the Navajo Nation, the formation is in the Four Corners region and plays a significant role in Navajo religion, myth, and tradition. It is located in the center of the area occupied by the Ancient Pueblo People, a prehistoric Native American culture of the Southwest United States often referred to as the Anasazi. Shiprock is a point of interest for rock climbers and photographers and has been featured in several film productions and novels. It is the most prominent landmark in northwestern New Mexico.

South Beach, also nicknamed SoBe, is a neighborhood in the city of Miami Beach, Florida, United States, located due east of Miami city proper between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The area encompasses all of the barrier islands of Miami Beach south of Indian Creek.

 

This area was the first section of Miami Beach to be developed, starting in the 1910s, due to the development efforts of Carl G. Fisher, the Lummus Brothers, and John S. Collins, the latter of whose construction of the Collins Bridge provided the first vital land link between mainland Miami and the beaches.

 

The area has gone through numerous artificial and natural changes over the years, including a booming regional economy, increased tourism, and the 1926 hurricane, which destroyed much of the area.

The Minnesota State Capitol is located in the United States of Minnesota's capital, Saint Paul, and houses the Minnesota Senate, Minnesota House of Representatives, the office of the Attorney General and the office of the Governor. The building also includes a chamber for the Minnesota Supreme Court, although court activities usually take place in the neighboring Minnesota Judicial Center.

 

The building is set in a landscaped campus. Various monuments are to its sides and front. Behind, a bridge spans University Avenue, and in front others were later added over the sunken roadway of Interstate 94, thus preserving the sight lines. Set near the crest of a hill, from the Capitol steps a panoramic view of downtown Saint Paul is presented. 1001

The Goblin Valley State Park is located in the southeast of Utah, between Hanksville and Green River near the SR 24 State Route. The small park has numerous petrified mushrooms and goblins in its valley with a size of one mile on two miles. At least the 3 meters high rocks with a little imagination look like this. Hence the name of this park (goblin = goblin).

This park is really interesting and futuristic and something you must have seen. Unfortunately we had a sand storm and only in the area of the entrance where it was a bit better I could use my Sony very carefully within a plastic bag...inside the valley I was happy (and I really hate to say this) that I could use my iPhone to take pictures - my camera wouldn't have survived the sand...

Here you could see one of the goblin hoodoos and in the back you could see the so called Three Sisters Hoodoos...

  

Der Goblin Valley State Park liegt im Südosten Utahs zwischen den Ortschaften Hanksville und Green River unweit der State Route SR 24. Der kleine Park bietet in seinem Tal, das 1 Meile auf 2 Meilen groß ist, zahlreiche versteinerte Pilze und Kobolde. Zumindest sehen die 3 Meter hohen Felsen mit ein wenig Fantasie so aus. Daher kommt auch der Name dieses Parks (goblin=Kobold).

Dieser Park ist wirklich interessant und futuristisch und etwas, das man gesehen haben muss. Leider hatten wir einen Sandsturm und nur im Bereich des Eingangs, wo es etwas besser war, konnte ich meine Sony sehr sorgfältig in einer Plastiktüte benutzen ... Im Tal war ich glücklich (und ich hasse es wirklich zu sagen) mein iPhone nutzen u können, um Fotos zu machen - meine Kamera hätte den Sand nicht überlebt ...

Hier kann man einen der Goblin-Hoodoos sehen und im Hintergrund kann man die so genannten Three Sisters Hoodoos sehen ...

 

The building is intentionally reminiscent of the United States Capitol. Designed by Elijah E. Myers, it was constructed in the 1890s from Colorado white granite, and opened for use in November 1894. The distinctive gold dome consists of real gold plate, first added in 1908, commemorating the Colorado Gold Rush. The building is part of Denver's Civic Center area.

In reviewing L'Enfant's plan, Thomas Jefferson insisted the legislative building be called the "Capitol" rather than "Congress House". The word "Capitol" comes from Latin and is associated with the Roman temple to Jupiter Optimus Maximus on Capitoline Hill.[8] In addition to coming up with a city plan, L'Enfant had been tasked with designing the Capitol and President's House, however he was dismissed in February 1792 over disagreements with President George Washington and the commissioners, and there were no plans at that point for the Capitol.

Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in a distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior. Though both its east and west elevations are formally referred to as fronts, only the east front was intended for the reception of visitors and dignitaries.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean.

 

It is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

 

The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world".

Hallandale Beach (formerly known simply as Hallandale) is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. The city is named after Luther Halland, the son of a Swedish worker for Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railroad. As of the 2010 census, the population was 37,113.

  

The city is known as the home of Gulfstream Park (horse racing and casino) and Mardi Gras Casino, a greyhound racing track which hosts the World Classic. It also has a sizable financial district, with offices for a number of banks and brokerage houses. Due to the large number of tourists who eventually retire in the city, Hallandale Beach has one of the fastest-growing populations in Broward County and in Metro Miami.

  

Hallandale Beach, like most of Broward County, had no permanent European-descended population until the end of the 19th century. Seminole Indians, in settlements that lay inland of the Atlantic shore, hunted in the area and gathered coontie roots to produce arrowroot starch.

  

Railroad magnate Henry Flagler, owner of the Florida East Coast Railway, recruited Luther Halland, a brother-in-law of Flagler's agents, to found a settlement south of the community of Dania. Halland and Swedish immigrant Olaf Zetterlund touted the frost-free climate and cheap land of the settlement (then named Halland, later changed to Hallandale). Halland constructed a small trading post and became the first postmaster of the small community.

  

By 1900, the community had slowly grown to a dozen families—seven of Swedish, three of English, and two of African descent. In 1904 the first school was built, and the first church followed two years later. Hallandale was primarily a farming community; the beach was undeveloped and used by the residents only for recreational purposes.

  

Hallandale was incorporated on 14 May 1927. By that time, a thriving community of 1,500 residents, with electricity and street lights, was in place. In 1947, Hallandale was reincorporated as a city, allowing it to expand its borders through annexation of nearby unincorporated land lying adjacent to the Atlantic shore. In August 1999, the city officially changed its name to Hallandale Beach.

  

Hurricane Katrina first made landfall between Hallandale and Aventura, Florida.
