Fokelore has it that you would find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.....so far I've only noticed it as a reward for enduring the stormy weather that precedes it.

I just had to take a picture of this aesthetically challenging flower pot against the nice blue hues of the wall and the vivid colours of the flowers.

 

The colours have been beefed up by using the fujifilm velvia film simulation.

Now where is that pot o gold...?

This is a 3 photo stitch from a P&S camera so not the quality I would like - too much noise. The sun was really lifting the colours. A short moment later it was gone....You can see a second rainbow for much of the bow.

After going out this afternoon to get a shot I have wanted for a while but the tide not being right a decided to play with a lobster pot instead

I've been away for almost a month, and I'm still pretty busy at work, but I sure did miss you all!! I just had to post one, just to see if I remembered how :)

 

I hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll try to do a little catching up next week.

 

This shot is for my dear friend, Vesna, whose texture work and still life images have always delighted me! Check out her stream.....it Rocks!!

The wee pot of coins found at the end of the rainbow, no gold just silver and copper in this one.

I planted the bulbs in two pots and I'm very happy with the results. I love muscari.

A pot in the window of a black house in Stornaway in the Outer Hebrides. Looks like the pot we used to use before toilets were invented. Otherwise known as a poe or guzunder (goes under bed) :-)

PETRIFIED in putrefaction: "It is the French name for a Spanish stew with a wide variety of ingredients called "olla podrida, specialty of the town of Burgos. The word was taken and copied by the French military during the Napoleonic occupation of Burgos (1808-1813)." Literally, however, the word "pot" in French has the same meaning as it does in Spanish and English, while the word "pourri" means rotten. In English, "potpourri" is often used to refer to any collection of miscellaneous or diverse items.

In early 17th Century France fresh herbs and flowers were gathered—starting in spring and continuing throughout the summer. The herbs were left for a day or two to become limp, then layered with coarse sea salt. The aging mixture was stirred occasionally as layers were added to it. Often the mixture would ferment or even mold as the summer went by. In fall, spices would be added to the unsightly grey mix until a pleasant fragrance was achieved, then scent preserving fixatives (see below) were added. The finished potpourri was set out in special pots with perforated lids to perfume rooms. Modern homes avoid having pots of moldly substances laying about, and potpourri is usually purchased in stores." (in Wikipedia)

If I took a 360 view it would show even more pots.

Finally managed to get out with the camera today, had a good day out with Simon not sunny but great for long exposures.

Weeds, wet cobwebs, droplets, and dead leaves. I liked the patterns in the droplets and web, and the tones and textures. In this version I've played with the slightly chaotic/cosmic feel of the image and altered the hues to accentuate this

Hull Pot lies on the western side of Pen-y-ghent just to the north of the main footpath, the Pennine Way, which leads from the summit into Horton-in-Ribblesdale. It is also close to the route of the Yorkshire Three Peaks and is well worth a visit.

 

It is actually a collapsed cavern and there is little to explore underground. However for walkers it is an impressive hole measuring 91 metres (300 feet) long by 18 metres (60 feet) wide by 18 metres (60 feet) deep. Just be careful close to the edge.

Sunset + Rainbow = win

 

I was a bit too late to catch the hole thing making a perfect half circle

Explored

 

I definitely found my pot of gold at Glacier National Park this past year. This particular photo was taken just before 7 a.m. on the day after my "Magic in Many Glacier" was shot. The storm clouds and sprinkles of rain kept sweeping over and intermittently there would be a rainbow stretching from Swiftcurrent Lake to the hills where the Grizzlies, Big Horns and Mountain Goats like to hang out. The sun would light up portions of the world that I was so lucky to be a part of for a moment. Glacier is there for all who seek it and I plan to spend much more time exploring this wondrous creation of nature.

 

I am so thankful for the opportunities that took me to five national parks this past summer and that will take me back to Mt. Rainier one more time before 2011 rings in. That mountain covered in snow, can you imagine?

 

Hit L to view large, you won't be disappointed.

 

Thanks for looking.

Here in Hong Kong we have just managed to root a bougainvillea cutting using honey instead of rooting powder. Although there's still some way for it to grow, this is how we hope it'll look eventually !

If you prefer factory rooftops to trains, this just might be the shot for you.

Forget-Me-Nots in a miniature version of my grandmothers cast iron pots containing chives, flowers, and mint at her cottage.

While sitting at the Tides restaurant in Portrush, Northern Ireland, with my wife Joyce and Flickr friends Mari (www.flickr.com/photos/22784225@N07/) and Evelyn (www.flickr.com/photos/herringpond/) after a day of shooting along the coast, Mari points out this brilliant rainbow. It just so happens I have my camera with me... I make my way out to the deck and pop off a few shots... and I realize that even here in Ireland, there is no "pot o' gold" at the end of the rainbow... they're back there, sitting at my table. Rainbows are rare, but not so rare as my company... time to go back in.

With two giant pandas in residence at the Adelaide Zoo, bamboo is everywhere including this potted specimen, as the pandas eat an awful lot of bamboo.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 

I found the Pot of Gold in Glacier's Two Medicine. Ihis favorite bench does have a million dollar view. What a stormy, colorful morning it was.

 

Have a lucky Friday and weekend!

It looked as if Creation Falls was flowing into a pot of gold last July.
