I have visited the crater previously, but this was the first time  I hiked down into it any real distance.  It might be a mile, but that takes one to an overlook providing a  different perspective than what is viewed from the rim.  My thanks to the girls for their volunteer modeling job.  They were photographed before the hike.  Remember, in only 90 minutes you can drive from the beach to the summit at 10,000 feet (3,000 Meters).

Monochrome Madness Week 21

Leave a comment

Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY

As someone pointed out the other day we have been doing this for almost six months, maybe when we get to week 26 we should think of something special.  So if you have any ideas let me know. It is time for another week of Monochrome Madness, I hope you enjoy all the entries this week. banyule-flats-fog-morning-monochrome

For those of you who follow my blog, especially my Weekend Wanderings posts will know that I have been upset with the weather here, but I am so happy that I finally got a change to photograph some foggy scenes.  We have had a few mornings of fog, but I haven’t been able to get out, but this is about the 5th or 6th morning, so we haven’t had many.  I went all over the place, well to a few places that I thought would be good for fog.  This is one I took…

Rework Wednesday 29

Ed Mooney Photography

Brownshill Dolmen OK so here we are at week 29 of this re-work series, for a while now it would appear that my images and content has been Ominous to say the least. Its something that I will always take as a compliment, but for today’s shot, i wanted to tone it down a notch.  The magnificent Neolithic monument known as Brownshill Dolmen in Carlow. I shot this last year when I visited with my eldest son Ryan and Nephew Scott. Believe it or not this particular image was shot for some strange reason on my HTC 1. Dont ask me why as I was using my Nikon at the time, perhaps I wanted a quick snap to share on Facebook? The Dolmen itself is a magnificent structure that you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate its sheer size. You can check out my full post from last year including…

Street Art: Around the World in Eight Photos

big fan

The WordPress.com Blog

Whenever I get the chance to travel, I always photograph local street art. The topics, colors, and scenes help me absorb the feel and atmosphere that makes each destination truly unique. Join me for a tour of some amazing street art from around the world, right from the comfort of your armchair.

Welcome to Berlin, Germany, our first stop on the tour, where we find Christine Estima‘s photo of street art by ElBocho. I love the bold lines and striking expressions:

And now, over to Cardiff, Wales, for something slightly more muted. DIFF GRAFF did a great job capturing Rmer‘s portrait of Marlon Brando as the Godfather. It’s quite striking, wouldn’t you agree?

North Dakota – Big Sky Cloudscapes I

nice

Points of View

When I first met the woman who eventually became my wife and learned that she came from North Dakota I asked her what were 5 great things about North Dakota. One of the things she identified was the “big sky” — the fact that you could see forever. Being from Wisconsin, I didn’t have a clue about what that meant, but as time has passed I have come to get a glimmer of understanding.

One of the things I love about North Dakota is its spectacular sky. There is no place else that I have ever been where I have seen such consistently beautiful cloudscapes and they are only visible because of that “big sky” my wife spoke about years ago.

I’ll be posting some of the “big sky” shots from my current trip over the next few weeks. Here is one example.
