This shot was taken in Snowdonia a few weeks ago. There was not much wind so reflections around the edges of the lake were reasonably good. The purples of the trees in the left foreground particularly caught my eyes.
So if you followed my last blog, you will know I’ve been playing around a new “darkroom” system and using USA pics to try it out. Here is a shot I took on Shenandoah’s Skyline Drive at sunrise earlier this year. It was a truly remarkable drive and I hope I get back again sometime. I hope everyone has a happy weekend.
Here’s a bonus shot taken the same morning.
Ever since I saw an image like this many years ago, I have been waiting for an opportunity where a number of ridges are lit showing each ridge slightly brighter to the horizon. I took this in Shenadoah NP in April.
I am currently in Muscat and this is the view from the hotel
I took this on a wonderful road/rail trip through the USA in Sept 2015. This was one of the many jaw-dropping vistas we were treated to on that trip.
I took this last year on a fantastic sunrise jeep ride.
Facing the Capitol Building is the Supreme Court, looking powerful under gathering clouds.
Reflections of the Capital Building. There are some nice reflective tiles outside the building.
Just fifteen minutes long with music from The Magnificent Seven to Beauty and the Beast via Hogwarts, this show was a nice end to the visit. It’s free, and people sit on the floor or flower risers to watch. There is no one perfect vantage point so everyone is relaxed.
In the past couple of years a new visitor attraction has been built in Singapore, near the Marina Sands Bay Hotel. Gardens by the Bay have two Eden Project style glazed domes and then an open garden which has some “living tree” structures which must be 50m tall with foliage grow up them and from which you can walk along a raised walkway. The Cloud Dome is cool (probably around 17 degrees) and there is a waterfall and some raised walkways, like in this picture. I would certainly recommend a visit for a few hours. I went in the early evening and watched a light show at 19.45. The Domes cost around $30 to visit.
