Alfred The Statue of King Alfred the Great watches over the high street of his Wessex Capital, Winchester, on a typically wet English morning. The statue was erected in 1901 but was commissioned in 1899 to mark the Millennium of Alfred's death in 899. The massive stone base bears one world "Aelfred". Alfred halted the Viking invasion of Britain and united the English Kingdoms to pave the way for the formation of the Kingdom of England.
"Birch Sunrise" Somewhere near my house, Muskegon, Michigan. I thought I might move away from the beach for a night and share a pic I took earlier this winter. I've wanted to capture this cluster of birch trees for awhile now, but never found the right opportunity. The trees are surround by civilization in every direction but east, so, sunrise seemed like the logical choice. I love birch trees and colorful skies, so this turned out to be a good day for a photo.

Ha'Penny Bridge, Dublin Another view of the beautiful iron Ha'Penny Bridge over the River Liffey in Dublin, so called because when t was built it cost half a penny to cross. 10seconds f16 iso400 14mm with the 14-42 kit lens on the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (on a wonky tripod LOL!)
"Blaze of Glory" Kruse Park, Muskegon, Michigan. After two morning of laying on my belly taking pictures of tiny wind blown sand sculptures, I needed a change of perspective. So, I climbed high above Lake Michigan to get a bird's eye view. I was not disappointed. The only problem was choosing which photo to post tonight! That, and the bitterly cold wind up there. More versions of this scene to come! Feel free to share!

Matsumoto Castle (松本城, Matsumotojō) is one of the most complete and beautiful among Japan's original castles.As cold as it was, it was well worth getting out of bed at 4:30am to snap this early morning shot...
