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).

****This frame was chosen on June 10th 2014 to appear on FLICKR EXPLORE (Highest Ranking: #52. This is my Forty fifth 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 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*****

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.

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 19.280 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 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.

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 cuisine 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.

Photograph taken at an altitude of Nineteen metres at 12:45pm on Tuesday April 18th 2017, in front of the Tempio dei Dioscuri (Temple of the twins ), the Temple of Castor and Pollux located in Regione VIII Forum Romanum, seen here on the left.

 

Castor and Pollux (Kastor and Polydeuces) were twin brothers known as Dioscuri or dioskouroi, who's mother was Leda. Castor's father was Tyndareus, King of Sparta while Pollux was the divine son of Zeus. In Latin the brothers are known as Gemini or Castores, and when Castor was killed, Pollux asked Zeus to let hgim share his own immortality, thus they were transformed into the Constellation Gemini. They were seen as patrons of sailors, apopearing to them as St Elmo's fire (St Erasmus of Formia), and also associated with horsemanship.

  

To the right we see Tempio di Vesta (Temple of Vesta), one of the oldest known structures located in the Roman Forum, once a storehouse for legal wills, documents of Roman Senators and cult objects including the Palladium. It is believed that the temple was built in the 7th century BCE by Numa Pompilius. Destroyed and rebuilt countless times, the current surviving section was reconstructed in the 1930's during the Dictatorship of Benito Mussolini, following it's complete destruction in 1549.

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

Dunorlan Park is a park and grounds in Royal Tunbridge Wells, UK. Totalling approximately 78 acres and containing a 6-acre lake, the grounds were landscaped by Robert Marnock for Henry Reed, the merchant and philanthropist who owned the estate and the now-demolished house that once overlooked it.

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 19.135 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 10:01am on Friday 13th September 2013 at an altitude of three hundred and five metres off the A85 Old Military Road and the A82, about midway between Killin and Lochs Lyon and Tulla, looking towards Beinn a'Chreachain, the easternmost of the four Bridge of Orchy Munros.

  

With a height of 1081 metres, it has the very fine Coire an Lochain on its northern side, harbouring a lovely lochan, and its summit looks out over the immense flatness of Rannoch Moor. Perth and Kinross, Scotland.

****This Three frame stitched Panorama was chosen on January 25th 2014 to appear on FLICKR EXPLORE(Highest Ranking: #76) . This is my Eighteenth photograph to be selected, my Ninth of the New Year which I am amazed and delighted by as I never view my images as worthy compared to some of the amazing 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*****

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 Seventy two metres at 08:31am on Saturday 24th June 2017 off the A20 Sidcup bypass and Old Perry Street, in the beautiful open grounds of Scadbury Park Nature Reserve in Chiselhurst in the London Borough of Bromley.

  

The Park was first mentioned back in the thirteenth century when it was owned by the de Scathebury family. It is also a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation, with over 300 acres of land, and is part of an extensive wildlife corridor together with Petts Wood and the Jubilee Country Park.

  

These horses are owned and loved by the family who reside in the big house off the main footpath, and they always respond to the lure of a bag of carrots and apples, as on this occasion.
