Happy New Year everybody!!

 

I returned home last night from a short stay at a wonderful guest-farm near Mossel Bay... situated in the foothills of the Outeniqua mountains.

 

I captured this 4-image panorama shortly after sunset from the top of the Robinson Pass, which cuts through the Outeniqua mountains between the Garden Route and the Little Karoo. What an amazing moment it was... with mountain peaks as far as the eye could see... I felt like I was on top of the world!!

Still some early morning haze as I look across at Derwent Water from Robinson. :-)

A small tarn near the summit of Robinson.

Robinson Creek flows out of Twin Lakes on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This spot is near Bridgeport, California. It was quite windy, which I think added to the nice color of the creek water.

“From this moment I began to conclude in my mind that it was possible for me to be more happy in this forsaken, solitary condition that it was possible I should ever have been in any other particular state in the world; and with this thought I was going to give thanks to God for bringing me to this place.”

― Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe

 

Sending warm thoughts to all those facing the insufferable cold weather ...

These are the grassy farm lands outside of Bridgeport California this is a small creek that flows out of the mountains into the Bridgeport Resevoir. This is one of the best areas for Trout fishing all of California.

 

There is a possibility that I might drive you crazy with diptychs over the next little while, for I got carried away and made a bunch of them.

 

These two pics are of Brian at Lake Robinson on our little photo romp last weekend.

 

Someone posted that it would be better if I posted the wider pic first and the closeup second. I tend to agree, but I had already done a whole group by then.

 

Both of these photos were edited in Snapseed on my iPad while I was still away. Naturally, I used Photoshop to put them together like this.

This curiously named hill to the north of Buttermere. Looks good with its snow topping. It was dead calm and even from this height I could see the lake (mere??) was refelcting well

The restored home will become the visitor center for Robinson Perserve in NW Manatee County, it was moved by barge down the Manatee river to its present location. Captured as a summer thunderstorm rolls in.

The Point Robinson Lighthouse is located on Maury Island in Washington state. According to Wikipedia it was built in 1915 and is a twin of the Alki Point Lighthouse. I guess I never realized that the two lighthouses were twins until I read that on Wikipedia. Anyway, you can get some nice views of Mt Rainier from the lighthouse park but unfortunately for me the mountain was blocked by some clouds when I was there. It’s funny how elusive that mountain can be even on nice sunny days. You can go quite a while in the winter without even knowing it was there. You can even be at Paradise which is pretty much on the mountain and not see it. When you do…it’s quite a site. Here’s a tip, if you ever fly South out of Sea-Tac, sit on the left side of the plane. It can be overcast and gloomy on the ground but once you get above the clouds you’ll often find Mt Rainier poking it’s head out. It’s an amazing site and if you can plan this around sunset it’s even better.

Here's another from my trip to Sandwood Bay.

I'm very used to being a long way from anyone else when in the mountains, but I have to say it is a very different experience on a beach.

Imagine being on a distant beach that is a mile and a half long, made of pink sand, the waves are crashing and the sun is going down - and you are completely alone. I can tell you that the sense of isolation is very special indeed, something to be savoured.

Whilst walking on the beach, I came across this set of footprints in the sand, and my mind immediately went to that famous passage in Robinson Crusoe where he unexpectedly comes across someone else's footprint. I didn't go into a panic and start fortifying my hut like he did - I just got my camera out! However, like him, I couldn't help but did wonder who made those prints....
