On the last morning of your stay in the Guilin region in China, we got up early for sunrise along the Li River in the town of Yangshuo.  This was taken crossing the bridge prior to us boarding a small bamboo boat to catch a local fisherman.   The karst peaks are very unique along this part of the river and a highlight of the trip.

I can't say this is my favorite food in the world (perhaps because it was not my staple diet when I was growing up - mine was more to do with Lithuanian potatoes) but its amazing to see this simple dish is makining a huge come back in Britsh culinary world making appearance on menus of most self respected english cuisine restaurants.
English delicacy?

This is one of those last second turn and shoot images I took when leaving the Intramuros area in Manila recently.   Sometimes I just like simplicity and hopefully this offer this.    I used Nik Software Silver Efx Pro with the Antique 2 filter to brighten the edges and added structure.

Shot from Cape Royal, North Rim, Grand Canyon NP. If you look closely there is a rainbow that begins in the lower left corner. The quality of light here reminds me of images I've seen from underwater.

This marker is by far the biggest single tourist destination in Key West, with long lines all day long of people lining up to pose in front of it. I only wanted this photo if I could get it abandoned like this, and one morning when my son woke me up before dawn, I went out afterward to go shoot this. Sure enough, no one was there! Ironically most people tell me it would be better with some human interest ;-)

A quick shot from tonight - went for a wee walk to give Lachlan some fresh air and the dog a bit of a run since it has been raining all day.  Not shot the church from this angle before that I recall so thought it was worth a look!  

The core of the church is, I believe, medieval with loads of later additions.  Must get inside again one of these days!

During this past weekend during my business trip to Manila, I decided to visit the American Cemetery and Memorial in the heart of Manila.   I was extremely humbled and in awe of the memorial, especially in respect to the 17,202 US and Philippino men who died and over 35K who are missing during WWII.  This is the largest cemetery of WWII soldiers in the world and was so impressed with the care and maintenance still performed to this day by the American Battle Monuments Commission.  The sod and grass is still brought in from the USA and all structures are as sharp and clean as I imagine they were when placed.  The peace and solitude of this area in the heart of Manila while sitting among those who served and gave their lives was one of the few times I put down my camera and really felt the need to give thought to what was in front of me.   Besides the 17K+ crosses where soldiers lie, the 36K missing in action are all identified in the hemicircles within the center of the memorial.   I hope they are never forgotten.

Sunset at Point Sublime, North Rim, Grand Canyon NP. Taken during the Labor Day Weekend NPN group meet-up. This location is a 2 hour drive (20 miles) from the visitors center via a very rough 4WD forest road. We had a permit to camp on the point.

In our trip to Papua New Guinea, we spent 2 days on the Sepik River in style....on a local canoe hollowed out of a large tree.  The Sepik is quite wide with thick vegetation and huts scattered about and is the main method of travel with the locals.  We sat on the floor of the canoe with little room for over 3 hours on this trip...but I could have been at work instead!

The Parthenon in Centennial Park in Nashville Tennessee was built in 1897 for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. It is an exact replica in features and size to the original in Athens, Greece. If only I had arrived about 15-20 minutes earlier to get a nicer blue in the sky. This is a 4 second exposure. See for more info on The Parthenon and the Tennessee Centennial Exposition.

I shot this at a huge bike and motorcycle junkyard in the tiny little burg of Rye, AZ. Rye is just a wide spot on the highway between Phoenix and Payson. I've had this image around for awhile but played around with it in Lightroom 4 and came up with a look that feels about right.

It's been a while since I posted an image, so here's one I took above Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park. I was up there before sunrise, but there wasn't much color in the sunrise itself. The wildflowers added lots of color after the sun came up and the sky turned blue.

I picked this one up a few years back and decided to play with it. I haven't been happy with the comp, the middle horizon and so much sky. Just one of those that the objects didn't want to come together very well. Found along Route 66 near Hackberry, AZ. Hope you find some enjoyment in it.

Tonight's planned shot was slightly derailed by a last minute bank of cloud which rolled in, still I managed to get a few decent frames before it gave up before getting really good!

This is Roanhead just outside Barrow in Furness, Cumbria, England.  I think it is worth a few future trips... though have my eyes on the stone circles marked on the map the other side of the estuary....

In Northern Ireland, the impressive Giant's Causeway with its 40,000 basalt columns (resulting from a volcano eruption). You probably know the legend but here goes anyway: there were once two giants, one in Ireland and one in Scotland. Both had quite a reputation, but the Scottish giant wanted to know who was the strongest and challenged Fionn, the Irish giant, to a fight. Being on separate islands, they began to build a causeway, starting on each side. But before the bridge was completed, Fionn got a glimpse at the Scottish giant and realized he was much taller than himself. Afraid, he tried to find a out of the fight until his wife Oonagh came up with a plan. When the Scottish giant finally arrived on the Irish side, he found Oonagh on the beach. She told him that Fionn was in the forest cutting wood and she presented him "Fionn's son" (the baby was of course Fionn himself tucked in a cradle). Seeing the size of the son, the Scottish giant suddenly lost all desire to fight the father and came running back to Scotland, tearing the causeway apart on his way home ! A lovely tale of Irish craftiness, isn't it ? =)

I happened upon this set of buildings in Spring City, Utah. The juxtaposition of the ominous clouds to the pretty buildings caught my attention. Forbes Magazine identified Spring City as one of the prettiest towns in America, and in the 2000 census had a population of 956.

Ruby Beach on the Pacific Ocean in the Olympic National Park is a wild beach with sea stacks, driftwood, and fresh air.  I used a 1 second shutter speed to smooth out the waves and an f/16 f stop to get the rocks into focus with the sea stacks, Unfortunately the wind created some movement in the trees but it actually helped the image I think.  a warming photo filter post procesing helped the colors.

This petrol station was the only one in town and it ran out of petrol about a week ago. Shortly before we got there (fortunately just to stretch our legs, not to fill up) the petrol station was re-supplied and had started to serve the hundred or so vehicles that were waiting, some had been there for several days. The owner predicted he would run out of petrol again that same afternoon.
BTW Petrol was about 15% cheaper than in the UK.

I was up in Utah visiting a cousin this summer and visited Manti City. The Mormon Temple there was quite a sight. Here's some info from Wikipedia.
The Manti Utah Temple (formerly the Manti Temple) is the fifth constructed temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons). Located in the city of Manti, Utah, it was the third LDS temple built west of the Mississippi River after the Mormons' great trek westward. The temple dominates the Sanpete Valley, and can be seen from many miles. The temple was completed in 1888.

I had the opportunity this morning to shoot this driveway again, and today the wind was almost non-existant allowing for long exposures with no movement in the leaves. A vertical will be posted tomorrow (adhering to the one image per category per day rule). 8 second exposure.
