You wanna see more Little Planets like this? Then have a look at my Album:

This great creation was at the Ellerslie Flower Show, but sadly I did not record the name of the creator.

Here is stop number two on this week's little roadtrip. I've been hearing about this place for years, and now I can say that everything I've heard is true. It is AMAZING!!! Bisti Badlands, in New Mexico. It's huge! It's spread out. If you don't know where you're going, you can wander all day. And, if you don't pay attention, you can be lost all day. You have to walk in about two miles before you start to see anything interesting, but once you do… WOW! I mean… Look at this place! I know I keep saying it, but seriously, this looks like another planet. It's hard to believe my own eyes when I see places like this. Yes, this really does exist, and yes, it really does look like this.


Anyway, this was taken at dusk. We had to hike back in the dark, which was a little scary. It's easy enough to get lost in that place during the day. Everything looks the same. It's like hiking in a giant maze.

War for the Planet of the Apes | Teaser Trailer ^^


I did not start this war.

I offered you peace.

I showed you mercy.

But now you're here. To finish us off... for good...


The Colonel:

All of human history has lead to this moment.

The irony is we created you.

And nature has been punishing us ever since.

This is our last stand.

And if we lose... it will be... a Planet of Apes...

I just love to twist the world with my camera. I never know exactly what the result will be when I put the B+W 10 stop ND filter in front of the Sigma 10-20mm. This time, the 6 minutes exposure really twisted my world.... and I love it :))



Comments and critique are as always welcome. Let me hear your opinion, why do you like this, or even better, how would you approach this scenery. Give me your thoughts... not just a Wow!... only then I can improve :))



In and out of Explore, thanks to all for comments and faves :))

This is a photo I took from a plane a few weeks ago (we were flying over Switzerland at 10 km above the ground!). I've repainted several parts of it. Many thanks in advance for your constructive feedback.


More facts: The mountains look rather small because we were very high, but they are huge, many of them exceed 4,000 m with the highest, Monte Rosa, reaching to 4,638 metres (15,217 ft), and there are also numerous glaciers including several of the largest in the Alps, such as the Aletsch Glacier, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001 with a length of about 24 km and covering more than 120 square kilometres!)

Never Let Your Dream Go By


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Never let your dreams go by,

Never let your dream die;

Nothing here goes on forever,

Like, 'I love you always so'.

You should always feel and know,

But our ways are sometimes blind;

Every thought that lives and flows,

Like the time that grows and goes.

Opened doors are left behind,

Just as time passes down and flies;

Everything in life here dies,

But every soul goes together.


There are laughter’s in the air,

There are cries everywhere;

We have time so we can try,

Never let our dream go by.

Never lose what you have found,

Take your dream to a solid ground;

Reach a mountain reach the sky,

Reach the top before you die.


Never let your dreams go by,

Have a time and have a try;

Opened doors are left behind,

On the mountains you shall find,

Those open doors go everywhere.

Always liken the West Coast of Auckland\ NZ (where this was taken) to another planet, its certainly the wild west and has so many interesting facets - black sand, wild surf, strange rocks etc.

The view of Planet Not from my space station window has to be seen to be believed! ;-)))

Image Notes: I noticed a recent moonlit Pawnee Grasslands thunderstorm sky shot looked much like Earth from space when flipped vertically so I decided to have some Photoshop fun (all source images are mine), hope you all likey!

how beautiful are the places we live?


See where this picture was taken. [?] on black, please...

Combating climate change and making the planet greener and cleaner is an issue for everyone. Climate change is no longer a distant, futuristic scenario, but an immediate threat. The impacts of climate change are unimaginable, shocking and going to be much worse than what we had anticipated today. Climate change offers humanity no second chances. Only rich countries can break the deadlock crippling international climate negotiations and prevent the world lurching into climate disaster. We should find a way to measure the general well-being of the people and planet rather than just raw economic growth.


Like the carbon footprint, water footprints are one of the latest methods scientists and policy makers are using to assess humanity's impact on the planet. And now businesses are starting to use water footprinting as well. We can calculate our water footprint “here”.


We don't need to wait for governments to find a solution for global warming. By making simple changes in our life, we can reduce our carbon and water footprints and helps stop global warming. We Can Easily Green our Daily Routine and reduce the Global Warming phenomenon. View Tips “here”.


Our Planet Needs us!

Here's what Planet Tree is turning into.

Macro Mondays 17/07/17 theme: Texture

A 1" section of the back of a geode lit from behind by a 2nd flash.

broccoli romanesco

Title inspired by the 1984 science fiction film "Dune" written and directed by David Lynch, based on the 1965 Frank Herbert novel.


These are snow dunes.

Night shot, taken at Lake Agnel (2,300 m) in the Gran Paradiso National Park (Italy).

I've reached this place hiking for 15 km with snow shoes, then I’ve mounted my tent for the night.


This image has a dual lighting:

from above - the moon

from the right - the lake's lighthouse (turned on for all night, even though there was not a soul for miles).


This side lighting also generated, on the left, the shadow of me plus my camera on tripod while taking the photo... I initially saw this as a disturbing element, but then I thought "why not?!" :-) At the very least this provides a little connection to reality in a landscape that seems actually taken from another planet.


The shades in pink are the result of the encounter with the orange color of the beacon with the white light of the moon.

By the way, the little dot on the right of the moon is planet Jupiter.

Just what the hell is Mono Lake? Hmmmmmm... How do I describe this place. If you want to go to a place that looks like a whole other planet, and you're tired of Utah, come here. It's a very salty lake, just east of Yosemite. There are these bizarre Limestone Tufas sticking up out of the lake. It's strange. I just shot this one about an hour ago. Another one of my dusk shots. I love shooting at dusk. This was like 45 minutes after sunset. It's a 30 second exposure.

The annual astro camp of Hungarian Astronomical Association was held end of July in Gerecse Mountain near Tarján (~40km from Budapest). During those three nights I took the opportunity to accomplish my long-planned 360^ startrail panorama photo with the hope that the light of observing lamps could produce a cool and intimate foreground of the scene. I was very lucky with the weather: only the first night was partially cloudly so I took 106 minutes of exposure (53 x 2 min) turning the camera to different directions every night.


This image was created by applying a Little Planet effect on that all-sky startrail photo.

"We're doing great, thank God. The American economy is flourishing. We're using more fossil fuels. We're putting more CO2 in the air. The coal plants are running at record levels. Business has never been better. We're doing great!"

Fred Palmer, Western Fuels Association


"If it were only a few degrees, that would be serious, but we could adapt to it. But the danger is the warming process might be unstable and run away. We could end up like Venus, covered in clouds and with the surface temperature of 400 degrees. It could be too late if we wait until the bad effects of warming become obvious. We need action now to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide."

Stephen Hawking


-Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as most favorited.


So we donated this wee little ship to creations for charity. It was kindly bought... What the buyer did not know was that we would take forever to ship due to wanting to build them an additional surprise of including the Planet Express building to go with it. So hope you're blessed and can forgive the wait! :D
