This is the very bottom of Cunningham Falls, which is on Big Hunting Creek in Cunningham Falls State Park near Thurmont, MD.  I was on a photo shoot with three friends from Easton, MD's Tidewater Camera Club.  I used a variable ND filter to help slow the camera's shutter speed for this shot.

I took this photo two days ago in Virginia's Luray Caverns.  I decided to post this image because including the people in the shot adds scale.  I've always found it to be very difficult to photograph within caves, especially in the old days of film.  Adjustable ISO digital cameras make the process a whole lot easier.

This group of visitors tried for 15 minutes to get a picture with all the girls jumping in the air at once. I patiently waited to get my own picture with no one in it. My wife eventually had to ask them if they would step aside so we could get our picture. They did so willingly. I couldn't help taking their picture while I waited. Quite frankly I think this picture makes a better story than the one with no one in it. What do you think?

This farm is operated by the University of Maryland. The clouds and open space attracted me to stop and photograph the scene. What do you think?

 Cornelius Vanderbilt II, became Chairman and President of the New York Central Railroad system in 1885, and purchased a wooden house called The Breakers in Newport during that same year. In 1893, he commissioned architect Richard Morris Hunt to design a villa to replace the earlier wood-framed house which was destroyed by fire the previous year. Hunt directed an international team of craftsmen and artisans to create a 70 room Italian Renaissance- style palazzo inspired by the 16th century palaces of Genoa and Turin. Allard and Sons of Paris assisted Hunt with furnishings and fixtures, Austro-American sculptor Karl Bitter designed relief sculpture, and Boston architect Ogden Codman decorated the family quarters. 

The Vanderbilts had seven children. Their youngest daughter, Gladys, who married Count Laszlo Szechenyi of Hungary, inherited the house on her mother's death in 1934. An ardent supporter of The Preservation Society of Newport County, she opened The Breakers in 1948 to raise funds for the Society. In 1972, the Preservation Society purchased the house from her heirs. Today, the house is designated a National Historic Landmark.

This truck driver must have a great sense of humor. Check out the toy bulldozer strapped down to the trailer. I took this in 2005 on the way to work one morning. I just happened to have my camera on the passenger seat next to me.

This Japanese Garden is definitely off the beaten path. First you have to take a ferry from the mainland to Martha's Vineyard. Then you have to take the "Chappy Ferry" over to Chappaquiddick Island. Then you have to drive to the end of the paved road. Then you have to drive down the unpaved road. But when you get there, the return is well worth the investment. (

I recently took a trip to Pamukkale in Turkey as it was very high in my bucket list. I was as amazed as I expected by this "cotton castle" ("pamuk - kale" in turkish). When the sun hits the white travertines, the rocks start shimmering like snow or ice, and those lovely turquoise blue hot springs are a no-miss.

South of Guilin and along my favorite river in the world, the Li River, is the town of Yangshou sitting among the giant karsts.  This is from one of the tops of a karst...painfully, and I converted to mono using Nik Software Silver Efx Pro.   It is a little bit of heaven...Chinese style.

During my trip last week to Melbourne, I stopped by one of the well known alley where griffiti is allowed and many artists doing their thing.  This is the same corner I placed a picture on TPN about two years ago and what a change.   I decided with this to do a little selective coloring with the artwork on the left and mono the remaining area.   This is in downtown Melbourne and next to a wonderful tapa's restaurant called Movidas.

One of my favorite drives in the world is west of Melbourne and is called the Great Ocean Road.  The highlight of the trip are the 12 Apostles near Port Campbell, although there are fewer than 12 now due to constant erosion from the strong surf.   This is at sunset.
