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!!

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.

Florida has very few notable waterfalls but Robinson Branch Falls on the Suwannee River outside of White Springs definitely deserves note.

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.

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.

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

“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.

The Robinson Mine is a porphyry copper deposit located in the Robinson Mining District, adjacent to Ruth in White Pine County, Nevada. Large-scale copper mining began in the district in 1907 and, with some hiatuses and several changes of ownership, continues in 2012. Production from 1908 to 1978 was more than 4 billion pounds (1,500,000 tonnes) of copper and 2,700,000 troy ounces (84 t) of gold, and current annual production averages around 120 million pounds of copper and 75,000 ounces of gold. A 1992 feasibility study found a potential 16 year mine life at these production rates;since then, there have been about 9 years of full production. Published ore reserves at Robinson as of January 1, 2008, were 103 million tons containing 0.68% copper and 0.23 gm/t gold.

The summit cairn on Robinson looking towards Great Gable and Pillar. The top of this mountain, although offering amazing views, is quite featureless in itself - so I ventured west of the summit to Robinson Crags for the shot pictured below:

Jackie Robinson broke the baseball color line when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. As the first black man to play in the major leagues since the 1880s, he was instrumental in bringing an end to racial segregation in professional baseball. His character and unquestionable talent challenged the traditional basis of segregation, not only in baseball, but in American life.

 

Robinson had an exceptional baseball career. Over ten seasons, he played in six World Series and contributed to the Dodgers' 1955 World Championship. He was selected for six consecutive All-Star Games from 1949 to 1954, was the recipient of the inaugural MLB Rookie of the Year Award in 1947, and won the National League Most Valuable Player Award in 1949 – the first black player so honored. Robinson was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. In 1997, Major League Baseball retired his uniform number, 42, across all major league teams.

 

At the November 2006 groundbreaking of Citi Field, it was announced that the main entrance, modeled on the one in Brooklyn's old Ebbets Field, would be called the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. The rotunda was dedicated at the opening of Citi Field on April 16, 2009. It honors Robinson with large quotations spanning the inner curve of the facade and features a large freestanding statue of his number 42.

Looking across Newlands Hause towards Crummock Water & Loweswater at sunset. The summit of Robinson is quite featureless, so I ventured to the edge of Robinson Crags to find some distinguishing foreground interest. Stumbling across this rock, I instantly fell in love with the unique etchings on it's surface. The distant light over Whiteless Pike was breathtaking.

Another shot for the album. Because of it's position with the sun I hardly saw any light on the face of Robinson until I was almost down.... even though there are still shadows, I love the light :-)

Focusing on both coding and making an accurate representation of the process of stacking boxes. 7/1/14

Having made the tortuous descent from Red Pike the terrain improved no end as the shores of Buttermere were reached. This view looks North and sees the last of the day's sunshine illuminating the flank of Robinson.

No trig point or summit cairn, just a crude shelter that on this day acted as a suntrap but didn't stop the cold wind.

There are a few cairns on top, but not on what I call the summit :-)

Just going through my photo's from my Robinson hike, taken a few weeks ago :-)
