During a weekend trip to Yosemite Valley one fall, we hit mostly rain and overcast skies. We didn't get to see much of the face of Half Dome during that weekend, but this shot is one of the rare times when we did.

"Moraine Lake, Valley of the Ten Peaks"  by Lichtjahre .....
Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometres  outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 1,885 m. The lake has a surface area of .5 square kilometres (0.19 sq mi).
The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinct shade of blue. The colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis.

Machapuchare, Nepal.
Machapuchare, is a mountain (6,947 m) in the Annapurna Himal of north central Nepal. It is revered by the local population as particularly sacred to the god Shiva, and hence is off limits to climbing.

DE HAAR CASTLE UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS

De Haar Castle is located near Haarzuilens, in the province of Utrecht in the Netherlands. The current buildings, all built upon the original castle, date from 1892 and are the work of Dutch architect P.J.H. Cuypers, in a Neo-Gothic restoration project funded by the Rothschild family.

The oldest historical record of a building at the location if the current castle dates to 1391. In that year, the family De Haar received the castle and the surrounding lands as fiefdom from Hendrik van Woerden. The castle remained in the ownership of the De Haar family until 1440, when the last male heir died childless. The castle then passed to the Van Zuylen family. In 1482, the castle was burned down and the walls were torn down, except for the part that did not have a military function. These parts probably were encorporated into the castle when it was rebuilt during the early 16th century. The castle is mentioned in an inventory of the possessions of Steven van Zuylen from 1506, and again in a list of feifdoms in the province of Utrecht from 1536. The oldest image of the castle dates to 1554 and shiws that the castle had been largely rebuilt by then. After 1641, when Johan van Zuylen van der Haar died childless, the castles seems to have gradually fallen into ruins. The castle escaped from total destruction by the French during the Rampjaar.

In 1801 the last Catholic vab Zuylen in the Netherlands, the bachelor Anton-Martinus van Zuylen van Nijevelt (1708-1846) of the Catholic branch in the Southern Netherlands. In 1890, De Haar was inherited by Jean-Jacques' grandson Etienne Gustave Frederick Baron van Zuylan van Nyevelt van de Haar (1860-1834), who married Varoness Helene de Rothschild. They contracted architect Peirre Cuypers in 1892 to rebuild the ruinous case, which took 15 years.
