“A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”

Non lontano dalla spiaggia di Playa El Golfo, si trova una delle attrazioni più singolari di Lanzarote, isola straordinariamente ricca di peculiarità e di forti caratteristiche identitarie dal punto di vista naturalistico.


Si tratta del Lago Verde, un nome straordinariamente anonimo per un paesaggio così suggestivo.

Il Lago Verde è spesso definito come un simbolo di Lanzarote per il suo essere simbiotico nei confronti delle due forze naturali che hanno generato e scolpito l’isola nel corso dei millenni: il vulcano e l’acqua marina.

La laguna è stata generata da un antico cratere vulcanico sprofondato sotto il suo peso, nella cui cavità è confluita acqua marina.

Organismi vegetali marini ed alghe hanno potuto prosperare nel pur ridotto spazio del lago grazie alla presenza dei sali minerali di origine vulcanica. Tale presenza vegetale ha donato al laghetto il caratteristico colorito verde intenso.

Il contrasto tra la oscura roccia vulcanica circostante e il verde profondo del lago costituiscono quasi un’iride, un occhio verde che affascina e ammalia con il suo sguardo.

Start enjoying the lyrical movements and be relaxed :)

I had too much fun playing with this one in Photoshop to not post it. I thought it was a fun change up to the water drop series...

Up flowery stairways of eternity

I whirled in wonder and untrammeled joy,

An atom, yet a portion of His dream—

His dream that knows no end. . . .

I was the rain,

I was the dawn, I was the purple east,

I was the moonlight on enchanted nights,

(Yet time was lost to me); I was a flower

For one to pluck who loved me; I was bliss,

And rapture, splendid moments of delight;

And I was prayer, and solitude, and hope;

And always, always, always I was love.

From Beyond the Stars by Charles Hanson Towne (Nov 1912)

Saturday Self Challenge


Next Saturday is Earth Day, so the subject for next week's challenge will be Earth Day related, such as beautiful landscapes, wild animals, flowers and trees, and anything else related to the environment. Processing is fine, and if you wish to turn your photo into a poster for Earth Day.


The background photo of the trees was taken looking across the valley at Hardcastle Crags, near the town of Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire on the 18th April. The photo was then processed in the HD Photo Wizard app on the iPad and given a 'Multiply Gradient' to give the rainbow colours. The gradient for some reason puts the blue at the bottom of the image, so I turned it upside down because I preferred the blue at the top and the earth tones at the bottom.


The next step was to transfer the photo to the Aviary app where the small planet Earth was added in the bottom left corner from the 'Stickers-Galaxy' section. The photo was again saved and taken across to the Curved Text app and the writing added, using the various fonts, shapes and colours.


Lastly the bluebell buds from a separate photo, which was taken yesterday 21st April, on the old disused railway line path in the village, were removed from their original background using the HD Photo Wizard app 'Mask' and 'Brush' feature. The two photos were then blended together using the same app, the bluebells being shrunk to fit in the bottom right corner.


The final result which is something I hope represents Earth Day.


Thnk you for your visit and your comments, they are greatly appreciated.


All Human being must understand our Ecosystem. Basically our plant is alive plant, but unfortunately we humans are only creator against this plant. Mother earth is trying to fulfilling the humans needs. as the human needs became unlimited and the wrong behavior towards nature. From north pole to south pole of this live plant, nature is constantly contributing for this live plant. And what we human did, we build borders , made enemies.. and made a horrifying nuclear weapons, which can destroy nine planets like Earth. Made this planet a bathroom. very soon their will be a shortage of food and we will start fighting.

I pray that God give us awareness about the importance of our Planet......!

Impressions of India – 25


While travelling through North India, we stayed in Fort Barli, in the village of Barli, in the state of Rajasthan. I had read that at a nearby lake, named “Dev Sagar”, I could observe a variety of birds. So after arriving at Fort Barli, we went for a walk around the lake. It is a beautiful lake and we did encounter several bird species. But we also saw a lot of garbage in and around the lake. The stench was quite strong at times. It seems that the lake is used as a dump by the local people. We saw running shoes, plastic bottles, jerry cans, various household items, tires, etc. in and around it.

On this Earth Day, I thought it was fitting to post this picture to remind us that our individual actions have a collective impact on the Earth. One person throwing one small thing in a lake can almost seem harmless in itself, but when hundreds of people do the same, the effect can be devastating. Every action matters.

Happy Earth Day!

Saturday Self-Challenge April 22, 2017:

"Earth Day" is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment. My only hope is that most people will start to understand that we must change our ways and that we must protect our "home".


Anche quest’anno si celebra l’Earth Day, la Giornata della Terra, prevista per sabato 22 aprile. Si tratta di una data molto importante, nata per sostenere la formazione di una nuova coscienza ambientale e la salvaguardia del pianeta Terra. Per l’occasione, in tutto il mondo si organizzano eventi a tema e anche l’Italia non è da meno.

L’Earth Day viene celebrato dalle Nazioni Unite il 22 aprile, un mese dopo l’Equinozio di Primavera, e vede la partecipazione di 175 paesi. La sua origine risale al 1970, quando venne celebrata per la prima volta per volere dell’attivista pacifista John McConnel. Da movimento universitario divenne poi un evento educativo ed informativo per valutare le problematiche ambientali, l’inquinamento, la distruzione degli ecosistemi e la conservazione delle risorse naturali.


This year is also celebrated the Earth Day, Earth Day, scheduled for Saturday 22 April. This is a very important date, born to support the formation of a new environmental consciousness and the preservation of the planet Earth.

The Earth Day is celebrated by the United Nations on April 22, a month after the Spring Equinox, and sees the participation of 175 countries. Its origin dates back to 1970, when it was celebrated for the first time by the pacifist activist John McConnel. The university movement then became an educational and informative event to evaluate environmental issues, pollution, destruction of ecosystems and conservation of natural resources.


A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.

"The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself." ~ Chief Seattle /Si'ahl, 1854

Also, here's a video I made about how to use your camera's manual mode, although I guess you guys already know that :)

My favorite subject for landscape photography is definitely the night sky. But when I visit the Oregon coast I always take the time to seek out a sunset, if possible. It's been a number of months since I attempted shots like this, so I'm a bit rusty. But the light on this recent evening broke a couple of hours before sunset and beckoned me to travel to Seal Rock State Park, where I spent quite a bit of time reveling in an empty beach. I probably should have climbed up Seal Rock itself to shoot, but that's one of those 20/20 hindsight things.


Enjoy your morning and have a happy Earth Day!
