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 is set to enter into a landmark economic cooperation with #China, making Rome the first of the elite #G7 group to officially join Beijing's vision to expand its footprint across the globe. Chinese President #XiJinping is set to arrive Friday (Mar 22) in Rome, where he and Italian Prime Minister #GiuseppeConte are widely expected to sign a memorandum of understanding on Italy's participation in the #BeltandRoadInitiative (BRI). The ambitious plan has already seen billions of dollars invested in various international projects, many of them involving expensive infrastructure projects in Africa and Asia. But Xi has long sought to take his signature project into a skeptical West.

The #US and the European Union have been deeply critical of China's growing economic presence worldwide, accusing the country of using investment as a means of pushing its own political agenda. Italy's apparent decision to sign onto #BRI would come amid staunch Western pressure, but according to Jacob Shapiro from Geopolitical Future, he U.S. has opted for political posturing rather than offering real alternatives.

President Donald #Trump heaped praise Tuesday (Mar 19) on right-wing Brazilian President #JairBolsonaro - and received plenty back - in announcing a special relationship that he said could even see the Latin American country join NATO. Trump, stressing #Brazil’s partnership in the U.S.-led campaign to force hard-left Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power, said Bolsonaro was “doing a fantastic job” and had 'brought the country together.'

For years Bolsonaro was little more than a marginal congressman, but his Trump-like campaign in 2018, promising to combat corruption and crime, and to end politics as usual, propelled him to surprise victory. His hard-right views, including frequent expressions of support for Brazil’s past period of military rule, horrified the left and drove deep divisions in Latin America’s biggest nation.

#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.

There are essentially three parts to the GauGAN software: a paint bucket, pen and pencil. At the bottom of the screen are a bunch of labels like sky, water, rock, and sand. Select "water" and tap the paintbrush and the tool will turn your blue line into a cascading, photorealistic waterfall. The same goes for turning circles into clouds or lumps into rocks or a cliffside.

The Italian government is preparing to sign a watered-down version of a ' #OneBeltOneRoad' deal with #China this week. Rome's prospective deal with China on trade and infrastructure investment, whose terms remain under discussion, has triggered objections from Washington as well as Brussels about giving support to a country that the #EuropeanCommission last week termed a 'systemic rival.' The #EU meanwhile is moving unexpectedly quickly to block Chinese access to big public projects ranging from railways to telecommunications.

Nevertheless, Prime Minister #GiuseppeConte told lawmakers on Tuesday (Mar 19) that 'the perimeter of the #BeltandRoad MoU is exclusively a trade and business one and it does not hinder our #US and EU ties in any way.' Speaking in the Italian parliament on Tuesday, Conte explained the decision to sign the agreement with the Chinese is based on a 'national interest' as #Italy would be able to significantly expand its export market.

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.
