Field of rape seed in full bloom. I cropped the image a bit, otherwise straight from the iPhone.
Strokkur geysir (Iceland) going off. I hope everyone will be having a blast this forthcoming weekend! :)
This whole area was a forest not that long ago. Now all the trees have been cut down, leaving only the occasional stripped tree trunk standing alone, reaching for the sky in a last defiant stand.
However this was always going to be how the forest would end up as the trees were specially planted for their wood and will be quickly replaced. In 10 years this view will be completely different again :)
It may not look like it but this photograph was taken about midnight last October. The sky is so light to the right as there was a full moon just off-camera.

Considering the fact it's going to snow here in few days, and get down to the minus zone, I'm trying to post as many of the fall photos we still have stashed in the computer as I can. Darn, I'm so behind everything it's very frustrating, but I'm sure trying.
Anyway, this is a 3 bracketed photos (I'm almost sure handheld) combined to HDR. I'm off to visit you guys, and then - prepare for our board meeting tomorrow. Oy, the joy of volunteer work ;-)).
Since it is running close to the halloween this photo might be more appropriate for the occasion.

It is still snowing and dusk is approaching as Soo Line train No. 421 blasts west through Brookfield, Wisconsin, on February 25, 1994.

On March 20, 1980, Mount St. Helens experienced a magnitude 4.2 earthquake;and, on March 27, steam venting started. By the end of April, the north side of the mountain had started to bulge. On May 18, a second earthquake, of magnitude 5.1, triggered a massive collapse of the north face of the mountain. It was the largest known debris avalanche in recorded history. The magma in St. Helens burst forth into a large-scale pyroclastic flow that flattened vegetation and buildings over 230 square miles (600 km2). More than 1.5 million metric tons of sulfur dioxide were released into the atmosphere. On the Volcanic Explosivity Index scale, the eruption was rated a five (a Plinian eruption).
The collapse of the northern flank of St. Helens mixed with ice, snow, and water to create lahars (volcanic mudflows). The lahars flowed many miles down the Toutle and Cowlitz Rivers, destroying bridges and lumber camps. A total of 3,900,000 cubic yards (3,000,000 m3) of material was transported 17 miles (27 km) south into the Columbia River by the mudflows.
For more than nine hours, a vigorous plume of ash erupted, eventually reaching 12 to 16 miles (20 to 27 km) above sea level. The plume moved eastward at an average speed of 60 miles per hour (100 km/h) with ash reaching Idaho by noon. Ashes from the eruption were found collecting on top of cars and roofs next morning, as far as the city of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada.
By about 5:30 p.m. on May 18, the vertical ash column declined in stature, and less severe outbursts continued through the night and for the next several days. The St. Helens May 18 eruption released 24 megatons of thermal energy; it ejected more than 0.67 cubic miles (2.79 km3) of material. The removal of the north side of the mountain reduced St. Helens' height by about 1,300 feet (400 m) and left a crater 1 mile (1.6 km) to 2 miles (3.2 km) wide and 0.5 miles (800 m) deep, with its north end open in a huge breach. The eruption killed 57 people, nearly 7,000 big game animals (deer, elk, and bear), and an estimated 12 million fish from a hatchery. It destroyed or extensively damaged over 200 homes, 185 miles (298 km) of highway and 15 miles (24 km) of railways.

Barn Swallow. (view large on black) After a brief stop on the water the Barn Swallow (note fhe forked tail), takes off in a flurry of water droplets making it difficult to get a sharp image. A familiar inhabitant of barns and other outbuildings, the Barn Swallow is easily recognized by its long forked tail. It was originally a cave breeder, but now the swallow nests almost exclusively on man-made structures. IMG_5660

Not as impressive as the last time we shot here, but just as cold. Not sure the six hour wait for a WB Freeport sub M337 train was worth it, but since it might very well be the last snowfall (In 2012 the March 2 snowfall was the last) it was worth the wait. Thanks to Bill Meier for recon work on finding this drift.
Beautiful colours for a deeply depressing grey day like today.

Have a wonderful weekend!

My first night out....
This was taken on one of many bridges that crosses the Susquehanna River.
I had lowered the tripod so that I could shoot at rivet-level. That also brought me more level with the taillights and headlights.
Adding to Macro Monday theme: Fast!
Well, no photo can really do justice to the amazing (but short) fireworks display which inaugurated the official opening of the Burj Dubai. This is the only shot that came out decent, the other ones are a bit messy (you can't see the details of the building anymore).
I wanted to shoot it closer with all the fountains, but then I would have been too close to the tower, it would have looked too much distorted. And unfortunately, I did not have access anymore to my friend's apartment who used to live in the hotel (building to the left here) just in front of the Burj Dubai.
The true and definitive official height of the tower has also been announced, it is 828 meters (and not the 818 that I mentioned in a previous shot).
And last but not least, it's no more called Burj Dubai but Burj Khalifa (named after the President of the UAE, also Ruler of Abu Dhabi)...I wonder what happened...May be the 'price' to pay for Dubai to Abu Dhabi for the recent financial problems... ;-)
