Hey, Copago, I want my car back!



This is #3 at the Royal Links golf course in Las Vegas. All the holes are patterned after holes at courses that have hosted the British Open. This par 3 is patterned after #8 at Royal Troon, the "Postage Stamp." They call it that because the green is so small.

LOL - I didn't take pics of the obelisco. I did on another visit, so I'll have to look for those pics.

Just as well, poor thing, it snowed all day today!

Looks like my neighbour will be getting some more use from this contraption before winter is done with us...

On our trip to Cape Town we stopped for the night at Beauford West and I spotted this old house which had obviously just been renovated. It is a very traditional Cape house.



While uploading the picture I realised that is a cloud and not smoke coming out of the chimney.

I've spent the past few days hiking in the Peak District of central England.
This lonely house is a hunting lodge, and could be something from 'Bleak house' or maybe 'Lorna Doone'.

Picqero,
That looks straight out of Wuthering Heights (or at least how I have imagined it).

Another bit of old England in Harrow, if the car wasn't there this could easily be around the time of Dickens.

Yes, 'Wuthering Heights' would be another good name for this place - just like the book as you say!
There were people staying there, when we passed by, so hopefully it's a bit more warm and welcoming inside than out

I'm enjoying all the Argentina pictures.
Liz, I think he can take that plow off his truck. Looks to me like you've had your share of snow for one winter.



Not sure what these are but the colors really drew my eye. They are in the desert Southwestern US. They look like some kind of reservoirs or ponds.

That's a beautiful photo picqero, in some ways it reminds me of Wyatt's "Christina" has that loneliness about it. Beautiful aerial shots D.Gary - it would be interesting to know what they are for ... they do seem man-made. Am enjoying everyones February shots. Its a quick month !

"Wuthering Heights" is the first thing I thought of when I saw your photo, picqero. Lovely! Ah, the desert southwest sure has interesting colors, yes?

I guess this could be called Mr. & Mrs. Mallard.

Lucy had a little red one she used to lose for months until I found it under furniture- the others didn't seem that interested in toys but she played with everything.

The problem with being away even for only 4 days, means it takes some time to catch up in the photo forums! When I saw that bare tree and shadow of yours Mc Shellsie, I immediatly thought I was seeing a cyclops that had just stuck it's branch in an electric socket!

And I agree, the other tree looks very sad and forlorn, indeed, in need of ornaments.

All the photos are great, I'm happy to see all is well in here, and I always enjoy traveling around the world in photos.

This is an old gas producer. It was used through the war when petrol was scarce. It would have been towed on a trailer with the pipe going directly to the engine with charcoal being burnt to produce the gas. A friend of ours reckons he could get it going again so we'll have to give it a go sometime when he comes to visit.

They are mallards, but non-standard plumage. There's a website called 10000 Birds... which has a 'Manky Mallards' (their description) section, specifically for mallards with unusual plumage. I've got a couple of mallard images posted there, and they could be interested in yours!

Another bleak image from my hiking trip in Derbyshire this week; a frozen landscape with a frozen path to the top of the Fell.

If it's Arizona, they're recharge basins. We fill them and let the water percolate down to the aquifer.

I've been at home with a cold for a couple of days so here's another from Harrow, a steep path heading upwards in the fields.

I've been told that those reservoirs in my last pic are potash evaporation ponds. The water evaporates leaving salt deposits.



This might be a cousin to your Mr. and Mrs. Mallard, ClaraSue. This poor guy was swimming around the huge fountain pool of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. I doubt there was anything for him to eat in there.
