Went for a stroll on the beach yesterday in North Dublin Bay and was rewarded by an amazing cloudy sunset.

Went back to visit Cataract Falls after all the rain we've had.. BIG difference! Unfortunately, there was also a bit of wind this day so those long exposures proved tricky. Here's one that may have worked.

I was on this hike with a friend. And remembered why I mostly like to go out alone to shoot.. who has the patience for this? Do you guys mostly go out alone to shoot? Just curious. :)

From Glamis dunes near Yuma, AZ. You need to have an ATV to get out a ways to avoid getting dunes that are all tracked up in this popular area.

It's a wonderful spot Tarn Hows, sitting between Coniston and Hawkshead, although it is difficult to get away from the crowds on a lovely bright day like today!  It is somewhere I need to get to more often to photograph though!

Taken out my bedroom window tonight - Hoad Hill on the edge of Ulverston in Cumbria, England.

First sunshine of Spring (well,  not really... but the first in a while!)

Cinderbarrow Bridge on the Lancaster Canal.  This is an exploratory photograph really - this is a scene that I keep passing on the main motorway/highway between the South and North West of England and onto Scotland (the M6).  I finally found how to get there and somewhere to park, although the weather/scene was not really there this time.  There is vast potential in this spot though so hopefully you will be seeing more of it in the coming months!

The view along Bassenthwaite in the North Lakes, England.  It was a pretty dull and lifeless day, but I quite like how this one came out anyway!

The white structure is a shrine to some saint. Good to see they were trying to make use of alternative energy sources. An indication of the fact that Tunisia is unlucky in not having found oil yet, while their neighbours in Lybia have loads.

Bit of a cliche perhaps, but I finished a job at a boat house late in the afternoon and popped down to grab a couple of frames as the light was looking interesting through the heavy cloud.  Just as I was about to pack up the clouds parted and fantastic rich golden sunlight poured over the scene.  Happy Days!

I took this at dawn whilst walking the dog - just loved the colours which were softened further by a heavy frost.

Finally we get a wee blast of wintery weather here in the Lakes.  It has been pretty unseasonal all winter, unlike the last couple of years.  Not much, but I think this is all I am going to get for Winter 2011-2012.

Dougga's history is best known from the time of the Roman conquest, even though numerous pre-Roman monuments, including a necropolis, the mausoleum, and temples have been discovered during archaeological digs. These monuments are an indication of the site's importance before the arrival of the Romans. (Wikipedia) The reason it is so intact is that after its gradual abandonment (probabably sometime in the 4th century AD) it was covered by sand and the local population built houses on top of it and used the land for grazing. Our guide told us that these people were forcibly removed during the 20th century (the last ones after independence in 1956) to make possible the extensive exploration of the site. At first they had to live in a few big sheds, but a few years later a new village was built for them. They still own much of the land and use it for grazing.

The well preserved building at the top of the hill is the Capitol, a Roman temple dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva.

Even though it is one of the best preserved Roman cities in the world, Dougga is still off the beaten track. For us this meant that apart from us and our guide there were 4 other tourists on the site the whole morning we were there. Often exploring these kind of sites is done in baking heat and you're looking for some shade, but this morning was cool and at times, because of the wind, bloody freezing!

This is a re-process and a different crop of an image that I posted a year or so ago. It was shot in the Central Valley of California near Dinuba.

Most of the doors in Tunis, and especially in sidi Bou Said, are blue. This one was bright blue at one time, but time has taken its toll and added some character instead.

This gives some idea of what it is like in a traditional North African/Middle Eastern shopping centre. This is in fact one of the main 'thoroughfares' and it is fairly quiet. Sometimes the streets are so busy you can hardly move. Shopkeepers need more customers as tourism has not yet recovered from the upheavals of the revolution. There are not enough cruise ships coming in. The Costa Concordia, that recently capsized off the coast of Italy, used to be a regular visitor to Tunis.

I can wholeheartedly recommend a visit to Tunisia, especially if you are interested in visiting historic sites from the Punic/Roman period. People are very friendly and prices are very low. We had some lovely three course meals for 3.50 per person!
Slippers? Pouffe? Tunisian Hat? Good Price!

One of the major National Parks in the Sichuan Provice of China is the Huanglong National Park.  It is primarily noted for its very colorful pools of water slowing descending through a mountain pass.   They come in many colors, whereas this aqua blue is most prodominent.   The trail is long and takes almost 6-7 hours to do the whole thing....very tired when done!

'Halo' is a panopticon in the hills of Lancashire, above Haslingden, Lancashire. A panopticon is a 'room of novelties.' At night it emits a blue light that can be seen from far away, so I should get up there after dark some time.
