Cat Bells in the left foreground, Hindsgarth on the right of it, then Robinson in centre shot. The Buttermere fells are behind Robinson.
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.
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!!

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.
“The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7
“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 ...

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.
Alabama. Damage from the EF-5 tornado be seen here, especially in the valley on the bottom left side. Also, if you look at the bottom of the picture, you can see a boat that was blown a great distance to this valley. It caused a great deal of damage to Phil Cambell and all around Franklin County.
Considering its January, I am a little late uploading this festive little image, but I thought I would anyway! Merry Christmas! x
This is looking up the valley that Twin Lakes is in, just outside of Bridgeport, Ca.

Sure cute! Mom cat's first desire after difficult surgery
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.
Similar to other uploads from this session but this is the one I definitely like the most ...... I think.

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.
