La iglesia románica de San Martín en Segovia tiene uno de los pórticos románicos más bellos de Segovia y su provincia, cuenta con un interesante repertorio de capiteles historiados. La galería porticada consta de trece arcos de medio punto, todos ellos se disponen sin ninguna interrupción o división de pilastras. Los arcos descansan mediante columnas pareadas y muy esbeltas que nos dan la sensación de ver un claustro abierto a la calle. Esta iglesia románica se levantó a lo largo de un dilatado proceso constructivo que comprendería tres épocas bien diferenciadas, la primera correspondería al período prerrománico donde se dispuso la iglesia con planta de cruz griega inscrita en un cuadrado. Otra fase correspondería a una etapa románica de influencia francesa en el S. XII, de este momento podemos contemplar la impresionante portada occidental donde sus esculturas con motivos del Antiguo Testamento nos transportan a Moissac o la Basílica de San Vicente en Ávila donde se alcanzan las cimas más altas de la escultura románica castellana y otra final pertenecería a un románico tardío a finales del S. XII y principios del XIII, momento en que se levantó el pórtico en los muros sur y occidental. El templo tiene tres naves y en el crucero se levanta un cimborrio de ladrillo.
The Church romance of San Martín in Segovia is one of the most beautiful Romanesque arcades of Segovia and its province, boasts an interesting repertoire of historiated capitals. The arcaded Gallery consists of no less than thirteen arches, all of them have it without any interruption or division of pilasters. The arches rest by very slender and paired columns, which give us the sensation of seeing a cloister open to the street. This church Romanesque rose along a long constructive process comprising three distinct eras, the first would correspond to the period pre-Romanesque where provided the Church with Greek cross inscribed in a square plan. Another phase corresponds to a stage Romanesque influence of French in the 12th century, this moment can contemplate the impressive cover West where his sculptures with motives from the Old Testament transport us to Moissac or the Basilica of San Vicente in Ávila where are reached the highest peaks of Castilian Romanesque sculpture and other end belonged to a Romanesque late at end of the 12th century and beginning of the 13th, time in which rose porch in West and South walls. The temple has three aisles and in the transept rises a dome of brick.
L'abbazia di San Galgano è un'abbazia cistercense, sita ad una trentina di chilometri da Siena, nel comune di Chiusdino.
Il sito è costituito dall'eremo (detto "Rotonda di Montesiepi") e dalla grande abbazia, ora completamente in rovina e ridotta alle sole mura, meta di flusso turistico. La mancanza del tetto - che evidenzia l'articolazione della struttura architettonica - accomuna in questo l'abbazia a quelle di Melrose e di Kelso in Scozia, di Tintern in Galles, di Cashel in Irlanda, di Eldena in Germania e del Convento do Carmo a Lisbona.
Di san Galgano, titolare del luogo che si festeggia il 3 dicembre, si sa che morì nel 1181 e che, convertitosi dopo una giovinezza disordinata, si ritirò a vita eremitica per darsi alla penitenza, con la stessa intensità con cui si era prima dato alla dissolutezza.
Il momento culminante della conversione, avvenne nel giorno di Natale del 1180, quando Galgano, giunto sul colle di Montesiepi, infisse nel terreno la sua spada, allo scopo di trasformare l'arma in una croce; in effetti nella Rotonda c'è un masso dalle cui fessure spuntano un'elsa e un segmento di una spada corrosa dagli anni e dalla ruggine, ora protetto da una teca di plexiglas. L'evidente eco del mito arturiano non ha mancato di sollevare curiosità e, ovviamente, qualche ipotesi ardita su possibili relazioni fra la mitologia della Tavola Rotonda e la storia del santo chiusdinese.
I apologize for the upload diarrhea of 4 photos today, 2 with warm white balance and 2 with cool WB, 2 close ups and 2 wider angles, San Marino Republic on a clear evening with views to Rimini and the Adriatic Sea below. Flickr chose the warmer versions to be on top. A panoramic version is also potentially coming.

Donostia - San Sebastián es una ciudad con vistas al mar y tiene una población superior a los 200.000 habitantes, si bien su área metropolitana supera los 400.000. A la mayoría de los puntos de interés puede llegarse cómodamente a pie, recorriendo sus paseos y ejes peatonales. Otra fórmula con creciente aceptación es el uso de la bicicleta, para la que existe una red de 'bidegorris' (carriles-bici).
El esplendor de San Sebastián durante la 'Belle Epoque', cuando era lugar de veraneo de la aristocracia europea, ha dejado hermosas construcciones, como el Gran Casino (actual Ayuntamiento), el Palacio de Miramar, residencia veraniega de la Corte, o los puentes sobre el río Urumea. Anteriores son las casas de la Parte Vieja, repleta de bares y restaurantes, donde es palpable la pasión local por la gastronomía en todas sus manifestaciones.
Hay quien la considera (yo también) como una de las ciudades más bellas del mundo. Es una equilibrada combinación de pequeños montes, edificios señoriales y mar. El mar Cantábrico es casi un donostiarra más.
La ciudad se dispone en torno a la bahía de La Concha, protegida del oleaje por la isla de Santa Clara y abrazada por los montes Urgull e Igueldo. Los cambiantes colores de la bahía bordeada por las playas de La Concha y Ondarreta, siempre deslumbran, con lluvia, nubes o sol.

San Sebastián - Donostia is a city with sea views and has a population of over 200,000 inhabitants, while its metropolitan area exceeds 400,000. Most of the attractions can be reached comfortably on foot, horseback and pedestrian crossing its axis. Another formula with growing acceptance is the use of bicycles, for which there is a network of 'bidegorris' (bike paths).
The splendor of San Sebastián during the Belle Epoque, when it was a summer resort of the European aristocracy, has left beautiful buildings such as the Grand Casino (now the Town Hall), the Miramar Palace, summer residence of the Court, or the bridges over the river Urumea. Above are the houses of the Old Town, full of bars and restaurants where is palpable passion for local cuisine in all its manifestations ..
Some consider (and me) as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Is balanced mix of small hills, stately buildings and sea.
Because the Cantabrian Sea is almost a donostiarra more. The city has around the Bay of La Concha, protected from waves around the island of Santa Clara and embraced by the Urgull and Igueldo mountains. The changing colors of the bay bordered by the beaches of La Concha and Ondarreta always dazzle, with rain, clouds or with sunshine.
San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy. It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometres outside the town.
The town also is known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, produced from the Vernaccia grape which is grown in the area
San Gimignano was founded as a small village in the 3rd century BC by the Etruscans. Historical records begin in the 10th century, when it adopted the name of the bishop Saint Geminianus, who had defended it from Attila's Huns.
In the Middle Ages and Renaissance era, it was a stopping point for Catholic pilgrims on their way to Rome and the Vatican, as it sits on the medieval Via Francigena. The city's development also was improved by the trade of agricultural products from the fertile neighbouring hills.
San Martin falls, part of the Iguazu complex.
These falls are visible from the San Martin Island. Access is via a short boat trip across the river, and a short hike to the top of the island.
The reward is a close and personal encounter with the second largest of Iguazu's falls after Devils Throat.

Didn't get a chance to eat here, but it sure was pretty when I strolled on through.
Thanks for looking!
Weddings, weddings, weddings...The last few weeks have been crazy...work, wedding, editing and then repeat! But I wouldn't have it any other way : ) Anyway, here is another shot from San Diego. I thought this was different enough from the last to be posted. As always, let me know what you think.
UPDATE 01.2012... I found out recently that this image was chosen by the Northwestern Mutual San Diego office for their website... San Diego Group
I love San Diego...

I'm out in San Diego for the Annual Antibody Engineering meeting. This morning's sunrise over the city was spectacular!
So during my trip with the girlfriend to San Francisco last year for Valentines Day, I was pleasantly suprised by the sculptures in Union Square. Hearts in San Francisco apparently began in 2004 as a fund raiser for the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. Like the famous painted cows, the painted hearts -- created from uniform molds and painted by individual artists -- decorate the city in areas like Union Square, until they are auctioned off at a benefit for the charity. New hearts are apparently unveiled each year. It was a really cool site and I think somewhere I have a picture of the actual heart as well pictured here.
Balloon Journey is the name of the heart www.sfghf.net/heroes08_Precita.php
Someone else caught it... www.flickr.com/photos/rcortijo/2374311846/
More info about this great idea is here : www.sfghf.net/hearts.php
As an afterthought, I always like to look at pictures I took and look at the people and zoom in on things and discover stuff I may have missed or moments I have captured maybe on accident... anyone else do this or am I just wierd?
23rd October 2012 - A view of San Sebastian or Donostia taken from the old fort.
I am posting two paintings -- one done using a traditional approach and painted prior to visiting San Gimignano, and this one painted during Karlyn Holman's workshop with a method taught by Australian artist, Pauline Hailwood. I like both for different reasons ... what do you think?
Being away from home, visiting new places, immersing oneself in different cultures, taking new workshops, learning new approaches, all can be incredible stimulating, spark new ideas, methods, colors and more.
In the weeks of my time away, all of this newness kept me thinking and dreaming and clicking away with my camera as I tried to internalize what I was seeing and experiencing. The result was that I found it mighty difficult to paint while all of the experiences slowly worked their way through the process of things to try, things to reject, things to emulate ...
I painted some and I'll be posting these as I catch up ... but I find the process of assimilation still going on. I spent several hours downloading my photographs -- all 6,000 of them!! LOL -- and finding that each image of a particular experience seemed so long ago ... and yet remains so vivid in my psyche ...
Further, all of this 'newness' requires, at least for me, a bit of time to make my own ... to learn how to adapt new painting techniques and ideas into my own 'voice' ... and so for a while yet, the weeks ahead will be a time of incubation, trial and error, while I become comfortable again with my own way of working.
I'd love to hear of your experiences too after you've been exposed to new ideas and methods ...
Jajajajajajaja….. ya esta aquí, el día de mi Santo…. Jajajajajaja y lo peor es que el de mí cumple ya esta a tiro de piedra….. y ese duele un poco mas…. jajajajajajajjaa

De todas formas la foto me gustaba y la estaba guardando para hoy…. Jajajajaja.

This may be a repost, not sure but I deleted some shots by accident. It is a "Pseudo" 1 shot HDR. Wasn't planning to shoot inside, so no tripod. Since I couldn't do a long exposure, I ran the single raw file through Photomatix and was surprised that it came out with a pretty accurate account of the way it really looked. The San Francisco Mission is the oldest standing original building in San Francisco, making it through the earthquake/fire etc. The original was built in 1776 a block away, then expanded to this building in 1823.

San Martin Falls from San Martin Island, Iguazu falls, Argentina.
The power of the water here was amazing. All the water from the top falls was channelled into the narrow falls at the bottom. The noise and spray was incredible.
A photo from our trip earlier this year that I realised I have never posted.
Shot from captains Jim's boat, around San Juan Island. we found the orcas more than an hour after we took off from Snugg Harbor, and as you can see we were not the only ones. these giant beasts are so majestic, it's unbelievable. we followed a large group for about 45 minutes. i don't remember which pod it was exactly. probably a mix of multiple pods, if i remember well.
in these situations, the 300mm 2.8 L was a bliss. and without my x2 extender, as the boat was moving a lot, and i wasn't able to frame properly at 600mm, not to mention the loss of speed at 5.6
