Thanks to Kerry Grainger.

An elegant stone viaduct over the River Nidd, built to carry a branch of the Leeds & Thirsk Railway (Leeds Northern Railway). The four-span bridge stands 78ft high above the water, each span measuring 56ft 9in across.

 

The arches of the bridge spring from halfway up the tall piers to form near-hemispheres. The rounded ends of the piers are extended upwards and finished in small, crenellated towers, which also adorn the stone parapets. More pronounced, half-hexagonal refuges top the abutments, marking the approach.

 

The whole was designed to blend with the architecture of the town, and intended for completion in 1848. However, the near-complete viaduct collapsed on 11 March and took three and a half years to rebuild; the incomplete railway line was opened in October 1848 nonetheless.

A very well known waterfall and swimming hole in Grainger county. This was the prettiest waterfall of the weekend in my opinion.

This shot was inspired by my contact Ian Grainger who has taken some awesome shots of splashes. I usually do my splashes in a different manner , however I wanted to try his way. The title itself came from the shape of the water as it looks as if someone robed is stepping out of the water, or is that just my imagination. : ))

I'm not sure if anyone else is doing mosaics for their 100x project, but I've decided to do one for every quarter of the project I complete!

 

I think it looks rather spiffing and am really looking forward to the next 75 images! :)

This is shot number thirty four for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

 

My aim here was to capture the mysterious qualities of this dark purple tulip! I'm pretty pleased with the results!

Here are the latest three additions to my 100x project...

 

This is shot number thirty for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

 

This year is the first year I've grown aquilegia, and I don't understand what took me so long!

 

They are fantastic looking flowers and make ideal photographic subjects! Mine have been flowering for over a month now and show no signs of stopping any time soon - so you may be seeing them again later on in my project! :)

Love these old buildings! We generally come home with more pics from the unplanned roadside stops then we do from the destination.

 

Located in Powder Springs Tn. Can't find any more info if anyone has some!

I was scratting about in the garden, looking for something interesting to shoot, when I came across this pair of mushrooms growing in one of my containers!

 

Immediately I thought of the title for my shot of the day!

 

It was then just a case of digging them up, and introducing them to some Christmas lighting!

 

I guess some days you just get lucky like that! :)

Christian with his tripod and camera getting a few shots in before "playtime".

It's a while since I managed to capture what I'd call a classic water drop collision, so I was quite pleased when I saw this one emerge from my water drop drip tray! :)

Grainger Town in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne, looking down Grey Street and Grainger Street.

This little gem and the 30 acres its on could be yours for $350,000.00. Theres also a house and a waterfall.

I couldn't resist shooting another dewdrop laden spider web today!

 

If you look closely, you can see my neighbour's house refracted within the droplets of water! :)

It's been such a long time since I've had a chance to play, I thought I'd have some fun with some coloured pencils this afternoon! :)

One of my favourite looking flowers for Friday! Don't stare at it for too long!

 

HFF! :)

Here is shot number nine for my 100x project!

 

The crocuses were the first of my spring bulbs to arrive last month, but I've only just got around to shooting one against a black background in my tabletop studio!

 

It was quite tricky to light this one, as I was trying to capture the texture and sheen of the petals, without blowing out the colour!

 

I'm very pleased with the results! :)

I was fortuitous to find this dewdrop laden spider web in the garden this morning!

 

It makes a nice addition to my month of Randomness! :)

I rather liked how the petals radiated from the centre of this echinacea flower like they were rays of sunlight!

Passion

(Rod Stewart / Chen, Savigar, Cregan, Grainger)

Somebody somewhere

In the heat of the night

Looking pretty dangerous

Running out of patience

 

Tonight in the city

You won't find any pity

Hearts are being twisted

Another lover cheated, cheated

 

In the bars and the cafes, passion

In the streets and the alleys, passion

A lot of pretending, passion

Everybody searching, passion

 

Once in love you're never out of danger

One hot night spent with a stranger

All you wanted was somebody to hold on to yeah

Passion, passion

Passion, passion

 

New York, Moscow, passion

Hong Kong, Tokyo, passion

Paris and Bangkok, passion

A lotta people ain't got, passion

 

Hear it in the radio, passion

Read it in the papers, passion

Hear it in the churches, passion

See it in the school yards, passion

 

Once in love you're never out of danger

One hot night spent with a stranger

All you wanted was somebody to hold on to yeah

Once in love you're never out of danger

One hot night spent with a stranger

All you wanted was somebody to hold on to yeah

 

Alone in your bed at night, passion

It's half past midnight, passion

As you turn out your sidelight, passion

Something ain't right, passion

 

There's no passion, there's no passion

There's no passion, I need passion

You need passion, We need passion

Can't live without passion

Won't live without passion

 

Even the president needs passion

Everybody I know needs some passion

Some people die and kill for passion

Nobody admits they need passion

Some people are scared of passion

Yeah passion

I processed another batch of water drop shots this evening, and this one caught my eye!

 

Does anyone else see the person walking on water? :)

Three days into my month of water splashes and I'm seeing long necked aliens in the water drops!

 

Goodness knows what I'll be seeing by day thirty! :)

 

~ Lightbox ~ 500px ~ Google+ ~ Website ~ Blog ~ Getty ~

I've always wanted to try something like this, and seeing as though I got the Christmas lights out today, I got my opportunity! :)

 

~ Lightbox ~ 500px ~ Google+ ~ Website ~ Blog ~ Getty ~

I've just about finished processing all of my water drop images which means I've got just under 200 to upload!

 

That should keep me going for a while, although I'm seriously thinking about shooting some more when the dark nights come round again! :)

Ce bracelet réalisé en 2008, est en fait un nœud en étoile étendu à un brin.

Il est basé sur la méthode de Stuart Grainger décrite dans ces 2 livres "Creative RopeCraft" et "Alternatives Turk Head".

Il est parfaitement possible en partant de cette technique de faire un nouage en étoile à plusieurs rayons et festons visibles.

Les plus beaux sont tout de même ceux à 3, 5 et 6 festons; mais on peut en mettre plus comme pour ce bracelet.

Je crois me souvenir que pour celui-ci, j'ai du faire entre 35 ou 45 festons.

Ce qui donne un bracelet de 70 mm de Ø réalisé avec du petit bout de 2 mm de Ø.

 

This bracelet in 2008, is actually a node in a star extended a bit.

It is based on the method of Stuart Grainger described in these two books "Creative RopeCraft" and "Alternatives Turk Head".

It is perfectly possible on the basis of this technique to make a knot in a star more visible rays and scallops.

Most interesting are those still at 3, 5 and 6 scallops, but we can put more like this bracelet.

I seem to recall that for this one, I had to make between 35 and 45 festoons.

Giving a bracelet 70 mm diameter made ​​with the small strand of 2 mm diameter.

A water drop just about to break the surface...

The weather is definitely weird here at the moment!

 

As I type this, there are bright blue skies, and temperatures are pushing up into double figures!

 

However, in the last week, we've had gallons of water rained upon us, whilst the wind has tried to blow us off the face of the planet!

 

This morning it was the turn of the freezing cold to cause us some discomfort!

 

This is how my car looked all over when I got up this morning!

 

Roll on summer! :)

Constructed in 1880-1883 to a design by architect and civil engineer John Grainger, father of famous musician & composer Percy Grainger. He later designed Melbourne's Princes Bridge (1886).

 

So as to allow the movement of shipping up and down the river to the Port of Sale, the bridge was designed to swing open. "The bridge is an elegant wrought iron trussed structure, supporting a timber decked roadway. It is approximately 61 metres in overall length, with a balanced swing span of approximately 45 metres, revolving on a central pier through a hand operated winding mechanism. The central swing span, when in the open position, provided two openings 19.2 metres clear for river traffic. Brick abutments support the fixed approach timber decking." (Victorian Heritage Database)

 

It is the oldest bridge of its type in Australia, and one of only two operational swing bridges, the other being the Pyrmont Bridge at Sydney's Darling Harbour (1902).

 

The bridge at Longford is no longer operated by hand, but utilises the assistance of a generator driven electric motor for scheduled openings.
