The Pyramid of Kukulcan is part of the Chichen Itza complex of Mayan ruins in the Mexican state of Yucutan.  The ruins are quite impressive and cover a rather large expanse of land.  Visitors are no longer allowed to climb to the top of the pyramid because of the rampant vandalism that was taking place.  I visited this site from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, about the worst time for outdoor photography because of the flat light.

Here's my version of this month's TPN cover photo.  I have to admit that I was going to pass on this shot until I saw Walter setting it up for himself.  It was then that I realized that the family in the foreground would had some human interest and scale to the photo.  In my early travel photos I intentionally avoided including people in my scenics, until I went to Utah.  I realized how necessary they were for putting the grandeur of some of the landscapes and rock formations into perspective.  Thanks for reminding me, Walter.

I like the play of light through the branches here, so I decided to go with a monotone for that reason.

The National Cathedral is the 6th largest cathedral in the world, and the 2nd largest cathedral in the United States. From end to end, it is 518 feet long. I took this Saturday while shooting with TPN members Roger Maki and Patrick Flynn. Taken with a Nikon D300, Nikon 17-35mm lens and a tripod. Processed with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.

This is my first submission from the second part of yesterday's TPN photo shoot with Patrick Flynn and Walter Rowe - the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC.  This was my first visit here, and the cathedral is very impressive.  In processing this image I adjusted levels and sharpness, but I did nothing to the color saturation.

The last, and most difficult, task that points can be earned for is to herd the three sheep into a small pen. He nearly had the sheep penned, but it did not quite work out.

Went to the Deerplay Sheepdog Trials yesterday and was amazd at how well these dogs have been trained. The dog starts out next to the handler and first has to run all the way to the top of the hill to pick up the three sheep. It must be almost half a mile away and the dog still obeys the master's whistle! The dog has to bring the sheep down a specific route, through a couple of gates.

Standing on the rim of the extinct volcano, Mt. Wawomuda, we are looking across to the other side with the active volcano, Mt. Inerie, in the background during an early morning hike.  There are 7 active volcanoes still on Flores Island with this one taking on the classical cone-shape.

OK, sorry...this is ANOTHER Singapore photo that I shot last week during a thunderstorm west of the city.  Since I have been here about 14 months now, I have envisioned getting a lightning shot, but really with the more dramatic bolts of lightning.  This was not bad though and was lucky as no fancy equipment was used..handheld on our balcony railing.  Someone says they see a dragon in the clouds?

I shot this during a Tidewater Camera Club field trip to the Delaware seashore.  I was looking for something that I might enter into an upcoming competition with the theme "strong depth of field."  I wanted to use the leading line of the dock to guide the viewer back to the boats in the background, but I also wanted a strong element in the foreground to "anchor" the shot (pun intended).  I don't know how well I accomplished my objective.

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!!
