If you look at the original size you can see Dun Caan, the extinct vulcano on Raasay, in the middle and the snow covered Cuillins on Skye in the background.

On the right is the cottage where Monty Hall spent a few months filming his BBC reality TV documentary (in which the MOD establishment, where they test under water weaponry, just a few hundred yards further to the right was never shown.)

I shot this while standing in the doorway of a slave quarters building that sits on the grounds of the McLean House in Appomattox Court House National Historical Site, VA.  I used the on-camera pop-up flash and then brought out the interior detail using the fill light tool in the Sigma Photo Pro 4 RAW conversion software.

One of the unique sites on Flores Island in Indonesia are the Spider Web "Lingko" Rice Fields.  This has been an age old tradition of the local tribes to bring unity to all the people.  They believed that the central point was a common and equal point for all the people to meet with the tribal head in case of challenges or adversity.   Equality was a big part of their life...who said democracy was dead!!

I saw Zara posted an image of this bay, so thought I'd put this one up. The driftwood & stone sculptures made it look a bit spooky. Reminded me of Lord Of The Flies, don't know why exactly.

This is at the north end of Totaranui Beach. The rock face is shaped like a petrified tree, with its roots sticking out of the sand. A magical calm place where you can sit for hours, meditating on time and the insignificance of man, listening to the waves breaking on the beach.

It was like being on the set of The Lord Of The Rings, at the foot of one of the Ents.

I think this may be one of the three or four really good images, out of the 2,500 that I took on this trip.

Punta Arenas calls itself the world's southernmost city, which is true by some definitions. It is really just a small town - barely more than a large village in first world terms - and as such it has legitimate competition for the title it claims. But it's a charming place within a spectacular region, and this is the best view of it that I caught in my short time there. Any critiques would be most welcome.

I woke up this morning and grabbed the camera to take this 3 image panorama of the moon setting over Singapore.  A rare site to see the full moon and few clouds to interfere.

we stopped to strecth our legs during an evening game drive in the Zululand bush and as I walked passed this tree, the sun and silhouette just begged to be taken, I was too lazy to go back and get my tripod, so more or leess aimed and took the shot..

A bronze sculpture of Columbus in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. To me it appears as though Columbus is begging the giant pigeon for mercy on behalf of the entire royal court - after a reign of obvious terror has already begun.
