WOW, I can't say enough about all the amazing photos lately! The longhorn steer were unbelievable, I loved the Squire and all the sailboats at the beach, the churches and the packing dilemma, the statues and the mountain scenes, the black Hawaiian sand and quiet beach scene, the canola(!) fields (I don't think I've even seen canola as a plant ), the scary job of the guys on the church and escaped shopping carts! *Whew!*

Here's another scene from Lassen Volcanic National Park - this aqua pond was feeding into the hot fumerole area, and turns into boiling mud at the end.

I must agree about the quality of the photos this month, they're all of the highest standard.

I visited the Museum of Modern Art while I was in Manhattan. It really wasn't my scene, but it was an experience all the same. Here is an example of what's on display there.



(I don't see the 'art' in this, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder I suppose & some might consider this to be a work of genius.)

Great shot TW. This fellow wouldn't let me get close enough for an upclose and personal shot and I didn't have my camera with the telephoto lens. Still he was a beautiful dragonfly. I'm always amazed at how many different types there are.

I expect it was only wearing those sunglasses because the sun was out today Sue. I didn't want to risk taking them off!

A good shot Argus. Dragonflies aren't as obliging about staying still as bees. I managed to photograph the bee with the camera on its 'super close-up' setting but even so, some cropping of the photo has been done to show more of the bee and flower and less of the background. That can be done providing you've managed to focus it well. Your dragonfly looks detailed enough for that.

Yes, I also rather like the 'shades', and good macro photography too TW.

I've been participating all day in a historical re-enactment. These are the Earl of Essex pikemen, almost obscured by the 'fog of war' from musket and cannon fire.

Here is a typical tube station inside, Stamford Brook in Hammersmith. The automatic barriers are recent and quite unwelcome additions in my opinion although they say it frees the old ticket collectors for other duties (unemployment and gardening I suspect).

I took this last spring during migration season. One of my pyracantha bushes was full of these birds feeding on the berries.

Ren, aren't those two Si and Am from the Disney movie Lady and the Tramp?

I agree, there are some wonderful pictures this month.

This church is located just up the road from my parents place in Colorado.

I had friends over for lunch today. The menu must have been good as they ended up staying for dinner this evening as well, and reluctantly headed off home at about 22h30.

Here's a shot of the main course just before it went into the oven for cooking - oven-baked fillet of salmon with red peppers, tomato and mushroom.

Look like cedar waxwings, bhs - they do love berries.

Wow, that salmon dish looks fantastic, and I love your b/w shot, Lisa - especially the little cloud puff above the steeple!

That salmon dish looks very mouthwatering & it isn't even cooked yet. You MUST send me the recipe Toni!
(It's probably well beyond my cooking skills to be honest. I'm more of a microwave or stir-fry kind of a guy.)

Great photos everyone! Nifti, your doggie is lovely.

Here's my Winston, wondering who's going to help him onto the deck at my sister's. We were there for Sunday brunch. After whimpering for a moment or two, Win decided he'd jump up himself, and managed rather well for his age!

It commerates the fire that destroyed the hotel depicted in the painting, there are countless others depiciting the lifeboat and wi to the sports teams.

For anybopdy interested in cooking my salmon meal, there's no 'recipe' as such.

We usually place the salmon fillets on a baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil, then top off with whatever vegetables we have lying around. In this case we cut strips of red bell-peppers, chopped mushroom and onion, and a few quartered tomatoes. Cook in a moderate oven (180C) for approx 35 minutes, or until the salmon steaks are done through. We seasoned with some rosemary and thyme, and you can add salt or pepper according to your preference. I think a drizzle of white wine might also be good, especially if you haven't any tomatoes to hand, as they keep the dish moist. Serve with some lemon slices and rice, or a green salad. Basmati is a particular favourite of mine.

It's a really handy meal, looks good when you have guests, minimal preparation, almost impossible to spoil, leaving you the host free to enjoy your company What a win-win, eh?


That mural certainly looks impressive, Prof. Winston looks alert and chirpy, doesn't he? Criccieth Castle looks great. I would love to visit Wales again!

Thanks Santanta, there is actulaay 10 of them dotted about the 10 centre. That was the one that caught my eye, Saying that one that had just been started looked as though it would be amazing. Was of the place in the early 1900's mud roads people on bikes and people carrying Kindling on their backs.
