The monumental granite sculpture located near Keystone, South Dakota was sculpted by Gutzon Borglum and later by his son Lincoln Borglum, plus 400 workers. The sculpture is 60 feet (18 m) tall of the heads of former United States presidents (in order from left to right) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. They represent the US birth, grow, development and preservation. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres (5.17 km2) and is at an altitude of 5,725 feet (1,745 m). The colossal sculpture was carved between October 4, 1927, and October 31, 1941 (Wikipedia).

"Mount Rushmore is named after a New York City Attorney. Charles E. Rushmore was sent out to this area in 1884 to check legal titles on properties. On his way back to Pine Camp he asked Bill Challis the name of this mountain. Bill replied, 'Never had a name but from now on we'll call it Rushmore'." (www.nps.gov/moru/index.htm)

Photograph taken at an altitude of Two hundred and ninety nine metres, at 10:32am on Friday 13th September 2013 off the A82 having just passed Lochan na h-Achlaise on our left, heading towards Fort William.

  

A call of nature struck, and I am very glad that it did or else I would have missed a part of the landscape that was so incredibly beautiful, it had me scuttling back to the car to grab my camera and a lens to try and capture what my eyes were witnessing. Crossing from a lay by, I came across a body of water left in pools from Loch Ba, a shallow irregular shaped loch to the South West of Glen Coe within Rannoch Moor in the Highlands of Scotland.

Photograph taken at 11:01am on Saturday 9th March 2013 off the A5 and A4086 beside the National Mountain Centre at Llynnau Mymbyr (also known as the Capel Curig lakes), two lakes located in Dyffryn Mymbyr, a valley running from the village of Capel Curig to the Pen-y-Gwryd hotel in Snowdonia, north-west Wales.

 

This is actually a single lake originally called Llyn Mymbyr, with a maximum depth of 30 feet and three quarters of a mile in length with a delta that has built up midway along the north shore, hence the plural name. The river feeding the lakes is the Nantygwryd (or Nant-y-gwryd), which has its source at Llyn Cwm-y-ffynnon, also marked on maps as the Nant Gwryd, which is a tributary of the Afon Llugwy. The two rivers join at Capel Curig.

The workshop was over, but, we Theresa, Dali, and I were not through looking for color in the Eastern Sierras.

We wanted one last sunrise before leaving Owens Valley for home.

Rising at 4AM and leaving the Lodge at 5:15AM with all our bags, memories carried in our minds, hearts and on SD cards we drove up Highway 395 to greet the Sun.

Arriving at our destination while still dark, we began quietly walking down the paths searching for a good vantage point to watch the Sunrise.

We were walking through a campground, still quiet with slumbering campers, and a few early risers who were quietly starting their morning fires.

Veering off the path Theresa and I made our way through some thick bush to the bank of the lake to set up our tripods. Here, from the misty banks we watched the drama of Sunrise unfold on the craggy walls, and snow capped mountain tops at a place called Silver Lake.

Over at Fort Cronkhite near the parking lot I found these growing wild. The beach here is called Rodeo, but is it Roe-dee-oh, or Roe-day-oh? I've heard it called both. Wanting to know I called the visitors center. The woman manning the phone there said it was originally called Rodire (Ro-deer) Beach, but that has morphed into Roe-dee-oh Beach. The surfers call it Fort. Cronkhite Beach.

She also said you'll hear pronounced both ways...

 

It was windy, and got chilly as the day wore on. Double D, and I started hiking up that mountain on the left and nearly reached the top when T called to say, "I'm here!" so we headed down to meet her. There is an old WWII bunker up there I'd like to explore.

I have owned several brands of trail cameras over the years. They all become inoperable over time but when you need a trail camera I seem to be drawn to Moultrie. They held up the best around this price range. I expect this one will dud out eventually but for now after one day and night of use in the field, here is my review. Very easy to set up and install. You almost do not need directions if you have had past experiences with other trail cams. Better strap now is provided. If you worry about security dont. Any committed thief will get this camera off the tree. It does have a security code that perhaps would be able to hack the code but for your common thief, I think they would not have enough intelligence to break the code. Day time video is very nice. I am using SanDisk Extreme Pro 8 GB SDHC Class 10 UHS1 Flash Memory Card 95MBs SDSDXPA008GAFFP and I set the trail camera to the highest setting. Very rich and colorful picture. Pretty good night videos too. I tried a 10 second video clip and found it to be too brief so my next set is 30 seconds with a one minute interval. I want to see what is there but I also do not want to be overwhelmed with too many pictures. It needs six Cbatteries. You can record sound with the video if you prefer. You can also turn off. Sound is fun and adequate but dont expect Dolby quality. If you are using Apple products, you can not update the firmware in the camera nor download the timelapse software. These items can only be set up using Microsoft computer. It is smaller than prior trail cames. Still a bit hefty with the batteries in in but still more compact and hopefully, harder for thieves to see. Longevity is yet to be determined but form ease of set up and quality of videos, I am pleased. Cost les here on Amazon vs. the big box hunting stores.

 

****This frame was chosen on January 24th 2014 to appear on FLICKR EXPLORE(Highest Ranking: # 127) . This is my Seventeenth photograph to be selected, which is both amazing and exciting as I never view my photography as worthy of selection compared to other peoples wonderful work. EXPLORE is Flickr's way of showcasing the most interesting photos within a given point in time -- usually over a 24 hour period.

  

Flickr receives about 6,000 uploads every minute -- That's about 8.6 million photos a day! From this huge group of images, the Flickr Interestingness algorithm chooses only 500 images to showcase for each 24-hour period. That's only one image in every 17,000!..... so I am really thrilled to have a frame picked and most grateful to everyone who visits, favourites and comments on the frame*****

****This frame was chosen on January 9th 2014 to appear on FLICKR EXPLORE(Highest Ranking: # 356) . This is my tenth photograph to be selected, and my first of the New Year, so a great thrill for me. EXPLORE is Flickr's way of showcasing the most interesting photos within a given point in time -- usually over a 24 hour period.

  

Flickr receives about 6,000 uploads every minute -- That's about 8.6 million photos a day! From this huge group of images, the Flickr Interestingness algorithm chooses only 500 images to showcase for each 24-hour period. That's only one image in every 17,000!..... so I am really thrilled to have a frame picked and most grateful to everyone who visited, favourite and commented on the frame*****

I was originally enrolled into the GETTY IMAGES collection as a contributor on April 9th 2012, and when links with FLICKR were terminated in March 2014, I was retained and fortunate enough to be signed up via a second contract, both of which have proved to be successful with sales of my photographs all over the world now handled exclusively by them.

The view from Glacier Point Yosemite National Park is stunning. Myself, Theresa, Ade, Alex, and Dali made the trip to Yosemite today to ultimately meet my friend Rick at another location and shoot the nearly Full Moon rising behind Half Dome weather and clouds permitting. The forecast predicted cloudy with 20-30% chance of rain on the 21st.

 

We decided to make a day-trip and drive up to Glacier Point to see the view since it was closed due to snow on my previous two visits, and a few of my friends hadn't ever seen this view before. The opportunity to see it by driving up here is short. As this road will be closed to traffic Nov. 1st. Only skiers and snow-shoers will be able to get here come the winter. Once closed it won't open again until Memorial day in late May or not until early June.

 

We had a nice picnic lunch here. Honestly I did a lot more looking and soaking up the view than I did taking photographs. I only took 21 shots the whole time we were up here. It's just a stunning, majestic place. I felt like being still and listening to the breeze, and watch the clouds drift slowly across the mountain tops, and breath - just...be.

 

To the right of Half Dome is Nevada Falls. This is the back side of Yosemite National Park.

 

I used my Singh Ray LB ColorCombo Warming Circular Polarizer to help cut any glare from the clouds, and mountains, and also to bring out more of the blues and grays in the sky.

Meet my new friend, Feathered Praetorian Maximus Aves Laridae, keeper of the Colosseum and distant relative of Emperor Charadriiformes VIII. He may only be small, but try taking a photograph without his say so (and a small payment of food), and he'll let you have it!

  

Photograph taken at an altitude of Forty five metres at 09:26am on Tuesday April 18th 2017,off Via Celio Vibena and Piazza del Colosseo on the second tier within the Colosseo, (Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre and Colosseum), Rome, Italy. It is situated in Regio IV Templum pacis (Temple of peace).

  

Built of concrete and sand, the largest amphitheatre ever built with construction commencing in AD 72 under Emperor Vespasian and completion in AD 80 under his successor Titus. The Colisseum could hold up to 80,000 spectators and was home to gladiatorial contests, slave executions, public spectacles and later, animal hunts and re-enactments of battles and drames using lifts and mechanisms to hoist scenery and animals onto the stage.

  

The Colisseum ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era and went on toi be used for housing, a quarry, workshops, a fortress and a Christian shrine. A massive earthquake in 1349 destroyed the outer southern wall, followed by neglect, and theft of metalwork and stones over the years. There have been many calls to demolish the Colisseum, and even plans to turn the structure into a hotel, but nowadays the building is protected and revered as one of the most iconic landmarks in Rome with a fascinating history, and a link to a worldwide call for the banishment of capital punishment.

  

An adult entry fee in April 2017 is twelve Euros, which allows a two day pass into the Colosseum and nearby Palatine Hill.

This is the first of my pictures with film published. I'm using an Olympus trip 35 with a 40mm lenses at F2.8. Look at the nice details of the photo, the subject is quite sharp and the background is blown out. Even though the film had a low ISO, (100), I can see the grains on it (probably the scanner added it). The best part of this shot is that it was the #one. None of the pictures in the film were actually good as it took me a while to get the grips to the Olympus. And the main difference with any digital device is that you only have one chance.

 

Here are the details if you want to achieve similar results:

 

Camera: Olympus Trip 35 40mm F2.0.

Sensibility: 100.

Film: B&W ISO 100.

Film Scanner: DS-123 22Mpx. (default settings).

Final Edition: Lightroom CC.

I spent yesterday afternoon and evening in Pescadero, California with several friends from my Night Meet-up group for the lighting of the Fresnel at Pigeon Point Light Station. It's normally an annual event, but due to California's budge woes they didn't light it last year.

There were lots of people out for this event.

 

This was my second location of the evening. I started out in the south field, but struggled there with the light, and I wasn't getting the points of light I wanted from the beams. After the crowd thinned out some we moved up here and I bumped up my ISO and finally got the shot I wanted.

The Park Service has been trying to remodel and retrofit this station and get it open to the public for years. It's a start and stop operation as they do what they can when they have funds.

The unattractive fence is too keep people out.

 

I'm learning to use my new/used Manual Focus 18mm f/3.5 Nikkor prime lens. I love the weight, and build of it. I will have to learn Hyperfocal distances now. I hope in the end I become a better photographer, and have a better understanding of photography through this lens. It is a lot different than sliding the switch over to Manual on my AF lenses.
