THE CHAPEL

This very simple yet beautiful little chapel is situated on a point that separates Santal Bay and Jinek Bay (Lifou, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia). The path to the chapel is breathtaking. Not only because the walk is sinuous, steep and narrow and you'll feel every muscle in your legs ache (just a little) but also because the path leads you into a tunnel of trees with their branches meeting above your head to completely surround you. The humidity is a touch higher through here and there's a noticeable, lovely smell of earth and wood. You still can't see the chapel as you come out the other end but people heading back down tell you that's it's not too far. So you keep going. But your breath is taken away, once again, as you realise you're above the canopy of the forest with it's foliage leading all the way to Jinek Bay (on the left) and Santal Bay (on the right). The view is spectacular. A few minutes later you arrive at the chapel. On a point. Above everything. Isolated. You think to yourself, some people make this little journey every Sunday.

Cuttalossa Summer
Another Cattalosa photo. I discovered this little farm at the heart of Bucks County/ PA just recently. "The name Cuttalossa comes from the name of an Indian village which existed in the area meaning "the place of the middle spring".
The original mill that was part of Cuttalossa Farm, dating back to 1752 and in use until 1929, is now a private residence across the road from the mill". It is really one of a kind place.

Snowshoeing in the woods, I got surprised by this nice X pattern that these trees created!

Taken 3 bracketed pictures and merged in Photomatix. Worked some details on Ligthroom

JINEK'S UNDERWATER WORLD

Jinek Bay is absolutely gorgeous (Lifou, New Caledonia). Blue/green waters so clear you can see the corals beneath it. A wonderland for snorkelers and divers.

Rodeo Beach

Way at the other end of this beach are some tasty sea stacks. Photographers seem to always go there.  The reason I say that is because I've never seen ANY images from the north end of the beach.  I mean, check it out; google up "image:rodeo beach" and it's all sea stacks and some misc nature shots.

Before driving out here, that's exactly what I did on Google to learn a little more about what I might find to shoot here.  Never knew I'd find this!

Thanks +Jim Hanson and, for me, also the textures in the land, sea, and sky. Lots going on!

PEARLY REFLECTION

I'm aboard a tandem boat, here, heading back to the ship. As I stuck my head out the window to photograph the ship, I noticed the reflection in the window. So I place my camera against the window and did my best I could to level out the reflection and snapped a photo. I thought I was going to get spray on the lens but I got lucky.

For a snowboarder looking over the other side of a mountain is like looking into a new world that is full of possibility's and is begging to be explored.

GREEN JINEK

I was heading up to a little chapel and before I arrived up there, I got a beautiful view of Jinek Bay (Lifou, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia). I just love all this green foliage. It's a shame it was a cloudy day but you can just make out the gorgeous colours of the water in the bay.

Noisy Sky

I made a rookie mistake here and left my ISO quite high. That meant that I had a lot of noise to fix (or try to) in this photo. Still a beautiful night out though.

The Arlington Hotel
Hot Springs National Park, Hot Springs, Arkansas


The original version of the Arlington was built in 1892. A fire burned the last version to the ground in 1923 and the current version was completed in 1925. In the 1930's, the Arlington Hotel was a favorite vacation spot for Al Capone and the Lobby Bar of the Arlington is on Esquire Magazine's list of the best bars in America.
