A Crested Caracara perched on a fence post by a farm in rural Okeechobee County, Florida. The Caracara is in the falcon family and largely feeds on carrion, birds, reptiles and amphibians. You often see them around Vultures. Vin and I just read a fascinating book about Caracara. It is "A Most Remarkable Creature" by Jonathan Meiburg.
This Magpie had its feet caught in a piece of string tangled in the branch of a tree. A difficult rescue - but all in a day's work for the Fire Brigade!
The Fire Brigade used one of their extension ladders to reach the bird, and here you can see the final stage of the rescue, the string cut from around the bird's feet.
Questa fotografia in bianco e nero riproduce una intera distesa di fiori, i Rododendri. In montagna è praticamente impossibile non notare questi fiori così belli e particolari, sono ovunque e anche in questo scatto ne ho catturati molti sotto ad un cielo azzurro e qualche albero.
This black and white photograph reproduces a whole expanse of flowers, the Rhododendrons. In the mountains it is practically impossible not to notice these flowers so beautiful and particular, they are everywhere and even in this shot I captured many under a blue sky and some trees.
I saw this young boy supporting his father. When I was ready to take the picture his father was eliminated and left the track, so his son was not looking at the cyclists anymore but still supporting his father as he did not understood what happened. I was so disappointed that my photo was ruined, but I still took one. When I came home and was able to have a closed look, I realised the the picture I took was much better that the one I had in mind.

School holidays with my grandson. Romey just came up with this lotus mandala on the spur of the moment in the beach sand which I found very creative. I asked him later where he had seen a lotus mandala before and he said he didn't know what that was and he was surprised when I showed him one online.
Yesterday morning, I watched a Bluebird standing on the edge of the house roof. It kept dipping down with its beak under the edge.
I watched for a while and then I realized it was sipping water from the melted snow that was trickling down the roof.
Marengo Road, Half Moon Township
After visiting the First Borough for sunrise a few years ago, Dad (https://steveinjapan.aminus3.com) and I planned to visit Mt. Fremont as the trail to the lookout intersects the route we were on, and it looked promising. Unfortunately, he never made it to Mt. Fremont as far as I know, although he might've been up to the lookout in his younger days. The trail features stunning vistas and a fire lookout. When I was there, a ranger was at the lookout. While no longer active, the lookout is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Anyway, I think he would have enjoyed the view of Mount Rainier from there.
We finally got around to spreading Baba's (https://steveinjapan.aminus3.com/image/2021-11-12.html) ashes along the Naches Peak Trail near Mount Rainier National Park. It was one of his favorite hikes due to the abundant wildflowers and spectacular mountain views. Mama thought she couldn't make the 3.5 miles or so loop, but as this photo proves, she made it with her smile intact!
So if you happen to trek that trail, take some photos for him!
I went out yesterday evening to position myself along the edge of the incoming fog bank near sunset. As if on cue, this large hawk hovered above the landscape just long enough for me to grab one frame! A little divine help from above one could say :-)
This picture has been taken during a walk in the countryside near La Neuvelotte (Lorraine) France. During the hot days the air was without any haze and the sun went down around nine o' clock .There are no digital enhancements here, except for the shadows that needed a little lighting.
The setting reminds me of some of my paintings in the 90ies, but I must admit that the camera did a very good job here.
Cette pierre gravée je l'ai trouvée dans un petit village de Bretagne. Je ne connais pas l'histoire de cette gravure . Cette pierre était près d'une petite église.
This engraved stone I found in a small village in Brittany. I do not know the history of this engraving. This stone was near a small church.
Over a thousand Hells Angels took a road trip into Toronto to pay respects to one of their own who has passed away. One of Toronto's many nicknames is Hogtown, so all those Harleys seem applicable. I took this photo yesterday looking north on Carlaw avenue at Eastern avenue. (Why "Hogtown"? The city was home to several abattoirs where many pigs met their makers during the Victorian and Edwardian era and the nickname stuck around.)
I knew it was weak, but t hadi rained all day and was forecast to be cloudy over night, so I didn't recharge it earlier in the day. As I was ready for bed, I looked out the window and beheld a full moon. Setting up the camera for some test shots of the full moon (I had researched camera setting several days before), I prepared for a long wait...until clouds rolled in, obscuring the moon once again. So I packed up the camera and went inside...only to behold out my window the moon, already partially in shadow, Out I went to set up once again, as the sky got hazy and ground fog began to develop. This time I waited it out and while the sky was not as clear as I would have liked, I did get to watch the eclipse, snapping multiple exposures. Just as the moon was emerging from the earth's umbra, and things looked like they were peaking...the battery died.
Arranged in a cruciform pattern with a central stone circle, the Callanish Stones are on the Isle of Lewis in the Hebrides Islands of Scotland. Believed to be built in the late Neolithic era, they were used for Bronze Age ritual activity.
We visited twice at sunset. I took this the first night. The second night looked even bleaker, so I was wandering around taking other compositions when the sky magically turned pink, and the more patient photographers in the group got a better shot than this!
Mon projet [email protected] s’est terminé en 2012. En août 2022, nous avons perdu, Wolfgang et moi, deux généreux collaborateurs de ce projet, Alain Berger et Gilles Martineau. Je trouvais important de leur rendre hommage et de les saluer.
My project [email protected] ended in 2012. In August 2022, Wolfgang and me have lost two generous collaborators in this project, Alain Berger et Gilles Martineau. I thought it was important to pay tribute and greet them.
I went back to Trinity Church, on Queen Anne Square in Newport, Rhode Island a few hours after sunrise.
As the sun was positioned right in the bell tower, I also noticed the light shining through the lampposts, as if they were still aglow from the night.
It is interesting that within a few minutes, lighting changes and this instance is gone.
Walking along the rocky beach, I saw this face staring up at me. I see a very stern, determined face staring back from under a tall helmet, probably with a chin guard. I darkened the outside to draw attention to the face, but have not modified any of the features.
On my walks along the small waterways near my home, I see non-degradable litter in the water and along the banks.
We must all ensure that we either, avoid using non recyclable products, or at lease ensure we dispose of plastics and non-recyclable so they do not reach our waterways.
The Shuswap has moods for all seasons. Shortly after this photograph was taken, the sheets of rain, white-caps on the rough waters and strong winds made life miserable for those who hadn't battened-down their sun shades!
As quickly as it has come, the photograph was "gone"!
White Rock is home. The sands are from childhood summers.
Like in other places with piers, the White Rock pier is iconic, and symbolic. Partially damaged by violent weather's forces, it was swiftly restored through local efforts and leadership.
