Snatcher, great Elephant shots mate, nice and sharp and great colours.

 

 

Bobj, looks like you had a ball, i knew the termite mounds were big but never seen one as big as that before.

 

 

well done guys.

 

Cheers Fred

 

Thanks Fred :rolleyes: Hope things are well with you in oz and where is Hellbelly these days?? Has he deserted us?

 

Bobj some great shots there. You certainly have an amazing country. The red centre,Ayes Rock,The Olgas.Aboriginal paintings etc certainly pulled my string. The only "down" was the millions of flies :o Would love to see some more of your "walkabout" pictures Bobj :)

Cullercoats Harbour 03 Feb 2014   It was a nice morning to take the camera out     John

A bit of a handfull !  

Time to resurrect this topic maybe.   A Wheatear, (migrating in for the summer) it was very close to where I parked for a walk yesterday and was still around when I got back, so I got the camera out

Here we go, taken at the end of a long working day for me, nearly 400 miles round trip to Southampton. But my new back to basics 'Have bag will travel' system, complete with Nikon D5000, camera by my side 24/7! meant I was able to catch this sunset on the last knockings, a few miles from home after dropping my pasengers off

Onya mate. Would love to have one of those paphiopedilums... ;) The slipper orchid, but they and cymbidiums are cold weather orchids and won't flower in the tropics.

Zebra stone in situ. It is mesa country, scree slopes 200 metres high and the Z. stone is at the bottom of a 10 metre cliff on top of the scree...And it was 37 C.

Morcambe Bay :o not an inspiring photo but worth putting on just to ask if anyone would like to own up to "nicking" the sea !!!

Took this shot just to the east of Barrow in Furness. I bet the water floods in at a fair rate of knots. I know that some Chinese cocklers were drown here because of that

 

This one is from the top of Hartside pass see here

I have been here now on 4 or 5 occasions and am still waiting for a clear day to see it at its best :rolleyes:
