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.

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.

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 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

As promised here is the backside capture of the United States Courthouse is Kansas City. An impressive structure with great detail on both side. The curved architecture really makes this building stand out from the rest.

The New York Court of Appeals Building, officially referred to as Court of Appeals Hall, is located at the corner of Eagle and Pine streets in central Albany, New York, United States. It is a stone Greek Revival building designed in the mid-19th century by Henry Rector. In 1971 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, one of six buildings housing a state's highest court currently so recognized.[note 1] Seven years later it was included as a contributing property when the Lafayette Park Historic District was listed on the Register.

 

At the time it was built it was known simply as the State Hall

United States Fire-Arms Manufacturing Company, Inc. (U.S. Fire Arms Mfg. Co., ) was a privately held firearms-manufacturing firm based in Hartford, Connecticut. Originally produced single action revolvers that were clones of the Colt Single Action Army revolver.[1] The factory was located "Under the Blue Dome," the former site of the Colt East Armory, where Colt's Manufacturing Company produced many of their classic firearms in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The company no longer exists since about late 2011, and The Company was the last fire arms maker in the The Colt's Armory Complex - and the site is now seeking Historic Landmark Status.

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.

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 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.

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 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".
