How gorgeous that moon is!
I agree about Bali. More more!

Love the photos, especially the moon shot.

Really DG, I think Flopsymopsy did a great job with Lewis and Clark. laugh

I posted awhile back on our spectacular Arizona desert sunsets. Here's the sunrise Monday morning. I still can't figure out why I get up so early when I don't have to.

Wow! That's worth getting up for, ClaraSue.

Chavs, your photo makes me want to leave everything and go away on vacation right now. smile

Gorgeous photos! Welcome to our new poster, lovely pic!

The local fair (exhibition, to give it its proper name) opened tonight. I spent an hour or so wandering about.

The family shot! Cygnet and his/her parents on the azolla-covered Ornamental Lake in the Royal Botanical Gardens, Melbourne on Wednesday. Trying to get all three with heads up at the same time just proved too difficult :-)

You're right, it does! Weird thing is, it's the view from Dun Laoghaire... of Howth. smilee


Hah! now I know why I had some niggling doubts about my interpretation. It was the grass which threw me, as there isn't any grass in Howth at the spot where you can see Ireland's Eye like that!

Great photos, everyone, love the moon with the shadows in front, and the glorious sunrise!

ClaraSue, if I could see a sunrise like that I'd get up early as well.

Love the moon shot Chavs

Thanks everyone. smile Nice photo of the moon, Niagara, sunrise and swan family as well. smile

While in Bali we visited a village which, unlike most of the island, has been practically untouched by tourism. We went with a group whose tours fund their charity work there. We went canoeing on a crater lake and from the lake I managed to take this one of the volcanoes surrounding the village. It was pretty hard to take as it was quite foggy and cloudy and the canoe was rocking a bit.

It almost looks like the volcano is smoking. Or is it? Exploding volcanoes would almost be enough to put me off wanting to go to Bali.

Almost. smile

While staying in the Black Hills of South Dakota I looked out one morning to see three deer grazing in the front yard. This fawn got particularly close to the cabin.

I'm fairly sure that was fog, not steam. smile That's one cute fawn, by the way. smile

I love heavy horses and often go to shows. This is a Suffolk Punch foal. The Suffolk Punch almost died out a few years ago, it was down to about six horses left, but with a lot of dedication from a few people numbers are creeping back up and there around now around 200, but every foal is precious.

It is good Ren. Most shows now have three Suffolk Punch classes and there are often 10 or 12 horses in a class where 10 years ago it was 2 or 3 and there are always two or three foals at each show now as well.

Ah, The Maid of the Mist...I've been on that boat, Howie, or one of the others there. As wet as I got, I didn't care, it was a great ride. Nice photo of it.

I'm so enjoying and have enjoyed all the month of August photos.

Today, I left the house at about 6:30 a.m. and came home around 3 p.m. to find this fellow on my back patio. I don't know if he/she came in last night or today. The shell itself measures 9 inches long by 7 inches wide. Gave me quite a start when I went out back. (photo taken with cell, not the best quality)

Thanks all for a wonderful month of sensational photos. I will leave this open a few hours for the late coming folk. In the meantime Welcome to September!
