We're building a megadungeon train... thing by making a whole bunch of one-page dungeons based on a template. No idea is too silly to try.

Fall of Giants Wadbilliga National Park
Celebration: countdown 5

A giant once stole three girls swimming in a pool at the top of these falls. One of the girls called all the birds in the sky to help free them, and a multitude of birds came and threw the giant's head to the ground. The giant's head may still be seen at the foot of these falls. Look closely, and you will see the tears falling from his eye.

The Giant was not alone. Look and see the other giants all around us. When they torment, remember the birds. Turn to the sky and call them with all your breath.

This is the Tuross River at the Wadbilliga near the sunken forests of the Duea. It drops about 200m (600') and is one of the most remote falls safely accessible to bushwalkers.

Image: I have processed a slightly wider image (for printing as one of the images in a 'brutal art' exhibition). This is a wider angle version. I chose a soft 'ink and watercolor' approach to pick out each of the rocks in the scene (working with a black and white image before washing color back into the image).

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection (with 450m views) until shutdown. This is a reprocessed scene of this fall (5th most viewed).

#Italy has signalled its determination to play a central role in #China’s grand plan to build a #SilkRoad -styled global trade network, despite rattling its #EU and #US allies with its plan. The country’s populist government is poised to endorse its participation in Beijing’s $1tn #BeltandRoadInitiative (BRI), a global trade project aimed at connecting Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe via a network of ports, railways, tunnels and other infrastructure, by signing a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MoU) during the Chinese president #XiJinping’s visit to Italy this week.

The EU, meanwhile, fears the accord with China will stir up divisions with member states wary of Beijing’s expansionist goals. The Italian prime minister, #GiuseppeConte, insisted on Tuesday (Mar 19) the move would be good for the country’s #economy, enabling it to boost exports to 'a market of an enormous size', and that signing the agreement posed no risk to its geo-political position. Italy has also not bowed to US-led pressure to ban the Chinese #telecoms company, #Huawei, from building its #5G mobile phone network.

So This is Making America Great Again?
Check out which bases in foreign countries are being considered for school and child care cuts. Then look at the Alaskan air base with no room for a school with 240 children additional. These are political targets. In Arizona McSally reports there should not be any such cuts. But we know who she’s a big fan of.

Trump's border wall money may come at expense of schools for military kids

A woodland walk in spring

Today is the spring equinox and while I haven't been able to photograph as much over the past few weeks as I would have liked, the days are getting longer and warmer.

Time again to venture on an epic photography tour in Ireland.

After a period of complacency about #China’s growing tech proficiency, the West has swung dangerously to the opposite extreme, grossly exaggerating a feared Chinese tech takeover of the world. China 'hawks' in Washington and European capitals fear that in one life-altering technology after another, China is poised to capture global leadership at the West’s expense. But China, while no paper tiger, is a tech laggard in many realms. And China is so beset with fiscal, social and environmental challenges that it poses no real threat to the West.

#Canada’s arrest at #America’s request of #Huawei’s CFO in December on U.S. allegations of violating American sanctions against Iran has caused Chinese retaliation against Canadian nationals imprisoned in China following the Huawei executives arrest. Succumbing to U.S. pressure on Huawei might prevent Canada from gaining competitive advantage in becoming one of the first Western economies with full-fledged #5G capability. Most major telecom equipment makers are dabbling in 5G, but Huawei holds the lead in functionality and low cost.
