"Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it." - Lao Tzu

 

Taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200.

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)

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.

    

On November 12th 2015 GETTY IMAGES unveiled plans for a new stills upload platform called ESP (Enterprise Submission Platform), to replace the existing 'Moment portal', and on November 13th I was invited to Beta test the new system prior to it being officially rolled out in December. (ESP went live on Tuesday December 15th 2015 and has smoothed out the upload process considerably).

  

With visits now in excess of 18.013 Million to my FLICKR site, used primarily these days as a fun platform to reach friends and family as I have now sold my professional gear and now take a more leisurely approach to my photographic exploits, I would like to say a huge and heartfelt 'THANK YOU' to FLICKR, GETTY IMAGES and everyone who drops by.

Photograph taken at an altitude of around Twenty six thousand feet, on Thursday April 13th 2017 from the window of a British Airways American built Boeing 767-300, a dual aisle twin Rolls Royce RB211-524H engined aircraft with a maximum speed of 568mph Mach 0.86 (913km/h).

  

Flying out of London Gatwick's South Terminal at 08:15am and bound for Fiumicino – Aeroporto Internazionale Leonardo da Vinci (Leonardo da Vinci International Airport Fiumicino) termial 3 in Rome, Italy, I could not resist a quick shot of the Italian Alpi (Alps) as the Two hour and ten minute flight neared it's end. 750 miles of Bunder Schist, Flysch and Molasse rock from the Tertiary geological period (66 to 2.58 million years old), the Alps cross eight Alpine countries and peak with Mont Blanc at 15,776.7ft.

  

This was a new service for BA, and the first time that I had flown Business Class on a short European flight (called Europe), something I regularly do on Long haul flights to Canada and the USA out of Heathrow. I enjoyed the service very much, and as a loyal British Airways traveller, I was happy with the Business class lounges in both the UK and Italy (the Rome lounge was very small but still comfy and nicely positioned). In flight food was excellent, along with free drinks including Champagne, always a nice way to start a trip. Being fast tracked through security at both airports was pleasant, and I will definitely be choosing this class from now on for my short haul flights.

****This frame was chosen on June 11th 2014 to appear on FLICKR EXPLORE (Highest Ranking: #379. This is my Forty eigth photograph to be selected, which for me is both amazing and exciting, as I never view my images as worthy compared to some of the awesome photography out there. 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*****

Photograph taken at 11:33am on Thursday April 20th 2017 within St Peter's Basilica, basilica papale di san pietro in vaticano, Rome, Italy. Architects Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Moderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini are credited as the chief designers over a period of history from 1506 to 1626.

  

The dome of St. Peter's rises to a total height of 136.57 metres (448.1 ft) from the floor, and is the tallest dome in the world. With an internal diameter of 41.47 metres (136.1 ft), it is regarded as the greatest dome of Christendom. The Dome was redesigned several times, perhaps most famously by Michelangelo in 1547, and upon his death in 1564 by his assistant Jacopo Barozzi Da Vignola. Giacomo Della Porta and Domenico Fontana brought the dome to completion in 1590 during the last year of reign of Sixtus V.

  

Around the inside of the dome in letters two meters tall is written:

TV ES PETRVS ET SVPER HANC PETRAM AEDIFICABO ECCLESIAM MEAM. TIBI DABO CLAVES REGNI CAELORVM

(... you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church. ... I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven .... Vulgate, Matthew 16:18-19)

  

Beneath the lantern is the inscription:

S. PETRI GLORIAE SIXTVS PP. V. A. M. D. XC. PONTIF. V.

(To the glory of St Peter; Sixtus V, pope, in the year 1590, the fifth of his pontificate.)

Photograph taken at 09:57am on Thursday April 20th 2017, off Via Del Governatorato beneath beneath the dome of St Peter's Basilica, in basilica papale di san pietro in vaticano, Rome, Italy. Architects Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Moderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini are credited as the chief designers over a period of history from 1506 to 1626.

  

This view was taken on the highest point that you are allowed to scale, following a seven euro fee and a choice of either 564 steps within the dome, or an escalator and 321 steps to reach this point. The view is hampered by a very intrusive safety fence which makes views and photographs of the interior at ground level of St Peter's beneath the dome almost impossible.

  

.

.

  

The dome of St. Peter's rises to a total height of 136.57 metres (448.1 ft) from the floor, and is the tallest dome in the world. With an internal diameter of 41.47 metres (136.1 ft), it is regarded as the greatest dome of Christendom. The Dome was redesigned several times, perhaps most famously by Michelangelo in 1547, and upon his death in 1564 by his assistant Jacopo Barozzi Da Vignola. Giacomo Della Porta and Domenico Fontana brought the dome to completion in 1590 during the last year of reign of Sixtus V.

  

Around the inside of the dome in letters two meters tall is written:

TV ES PETRVS ET SVPER HANC PETRAM AEDIFICABO ECCLESIAM MEAM. TIBI DABO CLAVES REGNI CAELORVM

(... you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church. ... I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven .... Vulgate, Matthew 16:18-19)

  

Beneath the lantern is the inscription:

S. PETRI GLORIAE SIXTVS PP. V. A. M. D. XC. PONTIF. V.

(To the glory of St Peter; Sixtus V, pope, in the year 1590, the fifth of his pontificate.)

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.

    

On November 12th 2015 GETTY IMAGES unveiled plans for a new stills upload platform called ESP (Enterprise Submission Platform), to replace the existing 'Moment portal', and on November 13th I was invited to Beta test the new system prior to it being officially rolled out in December. (ESP went live on Tuesday December 15th 2015 and has smoothed out the upload process considerably).

  

With visits now in excess of 18.455 Million to my FLICKR site, used primarily these days as a fun platform to reach friends and family as I have now sold my professional gear and now take a more leisurely approach to my photographic exploits, I would like to say a huge and heartfelt 'THANK YOU' to FLICKR, GETTY IMAGES and everyone who drops by.

Photograph taken at an altitude of Twenty six metres at 07:47am on Tuesday April 18th 2017, of the ruins of 'Templum Veneris Genetricis' (The Temple of Venus Genetrix), a ruined temple in the Forum of Caesar, Rome, Italy.

  

Julius Caesar dedicated the temple in 46 BCE to the Roman Goddess Venus Genetrix, Goddess of Motherhood and domesticity, mother of Aeneas and the mythical ancesttress of the Julian family. The forum and Temple were completed under Octavian and after a fire in 80 AD, rebuilt by Domitian, then restored by Trajan in 113 AD. Burned down in 283 AD, the temple was then restored by Diocletian.

****This frame was chosen on January 12th 2015 to appear on FLICKR EXPLORE (Highest Ranking: #278. This is my Fifty eighth photograph to be selected, which for me is both amazing and exciting, as I never view my images as worthy compared to some of the awesome photography out there. 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*****

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.

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.

    

On November 12th 2015 GETTY IMAGES unveiled plans for a new stills upload platform called ESP (Enterprise Submission Platform), to replace the existing 'Moment portal', and on November 13th I was invited to Beta test the new system prior to it being officially rolled out in December. (ESP went live on Tuesday December 15th 2015 and has smoothed out the upload process considerably).

  

With visits now in excess of 17.949 Million to my FLICKR site, used primarily these days as a fun platform to reach friends and family as I have now sold my professional gear and now take a more leisurely approach to my photographic exploits, I would like to say a huge and heartfelt 'THANK YOU' to FLICKR, GETTY IMAGES and everyone who drops by.

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.

Photograph taken at an altitude of Sixty nine metres at 09:11am on Saturday April 15th 2017 of 'Monumento a Umberto I', is a beautiful monument situated in the gardens of the Villa Borghese, Rome, Italy. The second King of Italy, Umberto I came to be known as "The Good King" and was commemorated after his assassination by the anarchist Gaetano Bresci on July 29, 1900, in this bronze statue standing on a marble plinth in Parco di Villa Borghese.

  

Commissioned in 1906, the monument was to prove a labour of love for it's sculptor Davide Calandra. It was continued after his death by Edoardo Rubino, his student who faithfully recreated the drwaings of his master. Production ceased during World War I, but 20 years after the start of the works, the monument was unveiled in the park, featuring figures symbolizing compassion and bravery in battle are shown in bas-reliefs on the base.

  

Villa Borghese Gardens, are landscaped in the naturalistic English manner of Rome, Italy. Containing the Villa Borghese, a museum and biopark with a zoo, these are the third largest gardens in Rome at almost two hundred acres, and built by Flaminio Ponzio in 1605 for Cardinal Scipione Borghese as a party villa.

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.

Photograph taken at an altitude of Thirty four metres, at 08:16am on Friday April 14th 2017, off Via Del Foro Piscario and Via Montanara of Theatrum Marcelli (Teatro di Marcello or the Theatre of Marcellus), an ancient open air theatre in Rome, Italy. Space for the theatre was created by Julius Caesar, though he was murdered prior to it's construction in 13 BC.

  

At 111 metres in diameter, this was the largest and most revered theatre in ancient rome and could hold up to 20,000 spectators. Built from Tuff and concrete faced stones in Opus Reticulatum style, it also used Roman Brick, a new introduction from the Greek world. The theatre fell out of use in the fourth century and a rise in the natural street level means that the ground floor is now underground. It is nowadays used for apartments.

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.

soooo I went outside today with my camera and a new sd card..

a sdhc card,

apparently my card reader is not compatible with it and I can not get the images onto the computer

.. soooo no frozen tundra shots tonight.....

after accepting i should move on ( I was going to go run out and get a new card reader but being that it is 7 degrees i reconsidered) i started playing around in Picnik a bit.. when i was finished i attempted to save an image i worked on for about an hour and it failed to save and I lost it... boo hoo.

so the beach it is. I am going to just stare off into the distance now and repeat : serenity now, serenity now..

and maybe have a glass of wine or two.

nighty night now.

****This frame was chosen on August 17th 2014 to appear on FLICKR EXPLORE (Highest Ranking: #t288. This is my Fifty fourth photograph to be selected, which for me is both amazing and exciting, as I never view my images as worthy compared to some of the awesome photography out there. 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*****

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:

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.

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.
