Joined the #ut4m  reconnaissance to Col de l’Emindras to see if I could get some images of the runners with the mountains in the background from a spot I've been to before; however the clouds got in the way.

More reco's to follow between now and the race later in the summer.

Took a ramble up Le Bruyant in Gorges de Furon on Saturday. The river was in full on flow... good job I brought my waders, otherwise it would have been a wet sock trip.  Lots of full on moss growth...

Wanted to experiment with my new +LEE Filters Polarizer, long exposure using the Big & Little stopper and a new Feisol Tournament tripod.  

Also used the new Lightroom CC HDR merge, and experimented with focus stacking via Photoshop.

This  #eclipse  photography is hard... Shot in downtown #Grenoble

OM-D E-M5 MkII with a 175mm (350mm effective) lens and a Lee 10-stop filter.  The clouds passing helped to give it a bit of definition and reduce the flare.

Wow... the Image stabilization on this new OM-D is indeed awesome... Just checked the metadata - 12mm (24mm effective) 1/4 second :)

On our first evening in Lofoten we were supremely lucky to get a really strong #Aurora  show, along with clear skies.

I took lots of images, but this is the first that I've published - and is a segment of a #360pano, which I'll upload later this week.

A pano from my archives - Manhattan at #sunset  from the Top of the Rock in NY.

Tripods not permitted up there, so you've got to be good to get a night time HDR shot :)

An experiment in time travel... thought I'd try blending an old postcard with a photograph of the scene today.

This is the entrance to the 'Jardin des  Dauphines' in Grenoble, next to the Porte de  France.  Looks like it's been a garden for quite a few years (although the current entrance is now to the right of the building here, not to the left).

The building in this image is currently a 1 story building, so I went semi transparent on the 1st floor to give it a ghostly effect.

You can see the original here

I just went through the process to select a new setup for my Home Theater system for +Plex server, and ended up selecting a NUC.

In terms of a power-optimal box that could run Windows + Plex, and have enough space I went for the latest 5th Gen Broadwell Intel® Core™ i3 processor (15W TDP), in one of the super compact NUC (Next Unit of Computing) boxes, just announced at CES 2015.  These come with CPU soldered to the motherboard, integrated wireless, Mini HDMI & Mini DisplayPort, and a built in infrared sensor to receive signals from my Logitech Harmony.  I went with the taller of the 2 to provide enough space for both a M.2 SSD and a 9.5mm 2.5" SSD, because I'd prefer a self-contained system rather than external storage.

So without further ado… I've just ordered the following

http://geni.us/1srz Intel NUC5i3RYH - an i3 should be more than enough, and the larger of these 2 tiny boxes have enough space for both a M.2 SSD and a 9.5mm 2.5" SSD
http://geni.us/32QO 4Gb Crucial DDR3L SODIMM - could have gone for 2x4Gb, but again I think 4Gb will be plenty
http://geni.us/oHw 128 Gb Crucial M550 M2 SSD for boot and OS - 64Gb is tight for Windows, so bumped this up to 128Gb
http://geni.us/3G7b 2Tb Seagate Spinpoint M9T - plenty of room for my media library

Jump through to the blog post below for more information.
I've been running a Home Theatre PC for a for few years using a fairly low power laptop-CPU on a Micro ATX motherboard in a smallish case; but I've never been able to get the suspend & resume working satisfactorily, and with a few recent reliability issues, concluded that it was time to upgrade to something more recent. I wanted a standalone system that could run as a Plex media server, with enough storage to hold my media library on...

Ah yes. That would work. I guess I am still waiting for an all-in-one interface to fluidly integrate all of this media. It seems like such a simple feat!

We went up there with the UT4M folk to checkout the area ahead of the launch event on Thursday - and we had someone along from the tourist office with a key :)

A slightly different take on my pano of the Cité metro.

One of the most iconic metro stations in Paris is the Cité metro, opened in 1910, under the Île de la Cité, the island in the Seine that contains the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Nice looking hotel, but the drinks are expensive, the beds hard as a rock, and the maids or the hotel systems keep resetting the room temperature to 23 degrees. Every day I knock out down a few degrees to sleep, but when I get back the thermostat is set up to 23 again. Not a good temperature for sleeping.

Very unimpressed with the pizza... Base was thick and doughy, not well cooked, and the toppings fairly uninspiring.

Old boat with generator issues. We booked the king Edward for dinner and cruise. The power went out several times, delaying dinner device to 10pm, and even with that they were only able to serve one option. No redeeming features, unless you want to feel like you're in an episode of faulty towers.

Had been wanting to visit the Cinnamon Club for years, and discovered that we were close to the Cinnamon Kitchen, so booked a table for myself and 7 colleagues. Everything was full of flavors, some familiar, others not so, but all great. All was great!
