We came upon a drum circle in Venice, Florida and stayed around to take it all in. I had my trusty Nikon with me and found a spot on the sand and sat myself down between some drummers and took a series of shots as the sun set in the background. This shot shows the Shaman leading the beat as dancers filled the air around a makeshift dream catcher.


I've done some editing in Lightroom to help create what I was feeling during this experience, but you'd have to actually be there to understand what I've tried to capture.


Oh....and I'm home now, so I hope to get back to my normal routine of commenting on your pictures too!

Drum Point Light is one of three survivingChesapeake Bay screw-pile lighthouses. Originally located off Drum Point at the mouth of the Patuxent River, it is now an exhibit at the Calvert Marine Museum.

Mount Drum (12,010 ft; 3,660 m) is a stratovolcano, located in the far west side of the Wrangell Mountains, on the western edge of Wrangell-Saint Elias National Park. It dominates the surrounding landscape, rising 6,710 ft (2,050 m) above the tundra.


When I first drove south by here I couldn't see the lake, much less the peak, due to heavy rains. Didn't know what I was missing. Sure glad I was able to see this impressive sight when I returned north.


Seen from Willow Lake.


Thanks for taking a look, and for your comments, faves and suggestions!

This is a camera angle from the sitting position on the set.the drum sticks are 5a sticks which I find better to use.

Drum is an ocean going yacht owned by Arnold Clark and used for corporate hospitality. It was originalyy owned by Simon Le Bon. It is seen here passing Gourock.

The mill by the lowest tramway at Drum Quarry. A fascinating place with many levels and an untopped sinc. Some elegant tip runs, too. Sadly, all the underground workings have collapsed, but the quarry is in a beautiful location, well worth a wander.

Opened in 1860 the quarry probably closed in the late 1880's... a lot of work for twenty years. Behind this mill are the remains of an incline going up to the quarry pit. On the left is a waterwheel pit with the tailrace presumably running under the road/tramway.

Collection of oil drums gathered at Vernadsky Research Base on Galindez Island. An interesting station to visit in Antarctica, although being the only station I truly visited I guess there wasn't much competition for that title. Try the sweet vodka at the bar if you have the opportunity.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the commencement of World War One, a Drum Head Ceremony took place amongst the WW1 training trenches on Otterburn Camp, Northumberland. More than 100 people made the trip to the wilds of Northumberland & although drenched by a severe downpour - We Did Remember Them...

“Music is the beat of a drum that keeps time with our emotions.”

Quote ― Shannon L. Alder


"Life is about rhythm. We vibrate, our hearts are pumping blood, we are a rhythm machine, that’s what we are."

Quote – Mickey Hart

What you see is a macroview of a snare drum, during a concert, with light reflection.


Fractal Image plus photomanipulation. I used Incendia NEXT to create this image. I liked it better with a partial rendering than a full rendering - more ethereal.

""Taiko" is Japanese for "great drum." The history of the great drum can be traced back centuries to religious ceremonies, harvest festivals and battlefield performances. It is widely agreed that Taiko reflects the spirit and essence of the Japanese people. Taiko drumming is more popular now than ever; its distinctive sounds can be heard in everything from western pop music to blockbuster Hollywood films.


Matsuriza is a percussion troupe that performs a traditional, 15-minute Japanese drum show at the Japan Pavilion at Epcot theme park.


Using handmade drums that range in height from 6 inches to 6 feet, the drummers in Matsuriza create a unique syncronized booming rhythm that can be heard from quite a distance away."


This drum hangs in the horse bedroom.

A drum I bought in a charity shop, 25cm in diameter, with a raised pattern in form of a five pointed star & other decoration. Lots of work gone into this - if anyone has an idea as to its possible provenance, I'd be delighted to know.

Drum Castle is a castle near Drumoak in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. For centuries it was the seat of the chief of Clan Irvine. The place-name Drum is derived from Gaelic druim, 'ridge'.


The original 13th century tower of Drum Castle has been suggested as the work of medieval architect Richard Cementarius, who built the Bridge of Don in Old Aberdeen. It is believed to be one of the three oldest tower houses in Scotland (and notably unaltered). A large wing was added in 1619 by the 9th laird, further alterations were made during the Victorian era.


The castle and its grounds were granted to William de Irwyn in 1325 by Robert the Bruce, and remained in the possession of Clan Irvine until 1975. William de Irwyn (of the Irvings of Bonshaw clan) was armour bearer/secretary (and neighbor) to King Robert the Bruce. Drum played a role in the Covenanting Rebellion (as did nearby Muchalls Castle) leading to its being attacked and sacked three times.


Chieftain's BannerThe castle is surrounded by late 18th century gardens, including a rose garden and arboretum containing trees from all regions of the 18th century British Empire.


Today, the castle is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and is open during the summer months. The chapel, dining hall and estate may be hired for weddings and corporate functions. A variety of local events such as classic car rallies and musical fetes also occur here. There is also a small shop and tearoom within the castle.

Was out at my favourite musical store and saw this fantastic setup. Had to have a shot. Also, any guesses as to which lens? Hint: Look at the ugly octagonal bokeh... Guess before checking my EXIF.. :)
