Have to admit, i'm not much of a "plane" person but that "Typhoon" is very unusual and a great perspective. Can almost hear its' roar.

Thank you Gary, for your nice compliment. You have quite the lovely view there, that curving canopy of green . What is the tall building, way, way back in the distance?



I loved going high in the mountains in the winter to practice shooting the auroraborealis. Often at times when the naked eye could not see them, they would nonetheless show up on time lapse exposures. This is Wasilla (Alaska) where I lived, nestled in the Matanuska Valley, taken from way up in Hatcher Pass. It would be so cold these nights, you could take a couple shots, then hop in the car, warm equipment up, go out take a couple more ...ad infinitum, lol. Shooting with gloves on is just an impossibility.

No Bee heights do not bother me, Shellsie the tall building in distance is another high rise which is nearer the city then myself. In total there are 3 tower blocks mine is the best of the lot as no druggies etc living there.

Lovely! I love the interesting perspective of the kite flyer, bhs.

In honor (or should I say, honour ) of the lovely mountainscapes, I add my own, taken this weekend at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.

Can anyone identify this butterfly? It has a wingspan just under 4 inches (10 centimetres), but I've no idea of its natural country of origin.

Hi Mcshellsie,
Love your photo, the colour's are amazing, the whole thing has a very oriental feel to it. Is that a Scottish Mc. at the beginning of your name?
This one is taken from our top field, the red chimmney pots you see sticking out of the trees is the roof of the house where I live.

The tallest peak is that of Ben Lomond the highest mountain in the Lomond Range, Loch Lomond sits at its foot.
Are we only allowed to post one photo a day?

Think it is a variety of Swallowtail?

It might be a Crimson Swallowtail, though the link image only shows the underside. I googled "crimson swallowtail butterfly'and remarkably came up with only two links, one of which was the one you gave!

Still in New York, I took this picture of the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. Well, anyone who knows my liking for rock music would expect nothing less of me. I didn't buy anything there nor did I have a meal as I found it too expensive for my pocket, so this is all I have to show that I was there!

Great photos everyone. Here is another shot from Riding Mountain National Park.



This is the Information Building where they tell you what animals have been spotted in the park and where. Also where bears have been spotted so you can be on the lookout. The park is celebrating it's 75th. birthday.

I haven't looked at these photos for a few days. Some amazing images here - love them all.

This is a lavender field gone somewhat wild, which I discovered when I took some things to the council tip and went further along the track. The sea is in the distance. The field was absolutely buzzing with bees and butterflies.

More excellent photos! I am really loving all the new participants' images on here.

This photo reminds me of the one that Lioness showed us where you had to guess if it was a photo of the sea or the sky - this is the blue of Crater Lake behind a pine. (Last Crater Lake photo, I promise! )

Where are the big wooden beams that you push on to open and close the gates?

Martin, i am enjoying your New York trip, i meant to comment on the carriage earlier. Did you get to go inside Sherry, it IS awesome? The swallowtail is gorgeous, it does not have the common swallowtail feature? the long pieces on its' bottom wings, hence the name? I loved the kite flyer bhs - just finished reading the book of that name. your photo brought back good memories. Yep, thought it was sky djsgal! What is a suter Gary? Riding Park, i have heard is so beautiful Argus. Never been east of Saskatchewan, would love to see the rest of our country.

Another one of my desirable residences in Orford on the Suffolk coast... a bit of a relic like me...



Crater Lake is so blue - beautiful - Canada is such a beautiful and diverse country with so many photo opportunities - almost like an uber sized Scotland.

Bit of a moody picture of a side entrance to our church.



The pictures here just keep getting better and better, well done all.
