The view from atop Pompeys Pillar in Montana. There's a reason why Montana is called Big Sky Country.

David: does that tower have any "history" at all? or was it built just to accessorise the rest of the property?

Martin: That's my favourite, whether it's historically significant or not (because I like the colours/pattern LOL) of all the aircraft you've posted so far.

That's Ruxley Towers... a rather nice house if you've got the legs for stairs. I'm not sure if it's still for sale but I saw the asking price of 3.5 million somewhere. That's pounds sterling of course. Here are some more views.

I'm very impressed anyone actually managed to identify the building just from the general location- but that's why I'm here- where else could that happen? (I think it was available by clicking it but sure it would have been tracked down either way).

I took this photo in Hong Kong harbour last week - tomorrow I'll post a photo of the boat we were travelling in at the time.

A floating classroom! What a wonderful program and that is a great looking ship! Can you imagine what that looked like on the High Seas? The backdrop of Hong Kong gives a neat contrast of "then" and "now".

These are some big grain silos!

This is the junk we were on when I photographed the boat above. It's called the Aqua Luna and is a popular touristy thing to do. We took an evening cruise on it and enjoyed it so much, we took a daytime cruise a couple of days later.

Lovely views, Satguru and Clara! Also love your tower, Sat (thanks for the link Flopsy!)
A butterfly or moth flying off some lavender. I have shots of it on the lavender, but I actually think this one turned out the best.

Great shot Dan.

Just been catching up here, havn't had phone or internet since Saturday due to a "fault on the line"! Highly frustrating.

Thrilled with the installation of a satellite TV dish, the colony look forward to hunkering down for the winter to watch a marathon of "Leave It To Beaver" reruns.

Another picture of the Aqua Luna on our evening cruise. The sails aren't really on fire - it's just a trick of the light.

This time not as close up as the last one, a view of the mid-October snow on the foothills to the west of Timaru. About 20 metres behind me is the Pacific Ocean so the views when I walk into town and back are so horrible....lol

Mante, that post made me laugh!
Lovely views Howie!
Very nice garden, Satguru. My yard is pretty much just weeds. wink
Looks and sounds like you had a great trip, MG!
Hey etrum, maybe my pelican and yours could be friends! wink
Here's another West Australian native (also found in other Australian states). It is a cockatoo (I'd say a corella of some sort) with its crest up.

Wow! Where to start? All the photos since I last posted are fabulous! The snow covered mountains are just gorgeous as is the lavender and moth. Sat, your mist and cottage garden pictures are so peaceful and serene. Copago, somewhere I have a collection of old junker truck and car photos. We see so many our travels and I find them fascinating. MG, I did think at first that your sails were on fire. Good catch!

I think that this is a crab-apple tree. It was in a rest area in Oregon and was so overloaded that I had to take just a taste to see. It was bitter. grin
