Berowra
In reply to FrankS009, Feb 4, 2014

Berowra Heights is a northern fringe suburb of Sydney, Oz.

I did it the lazy way and took this a few minutes ago off my back deck. Once a year I might use a filter and this is the only one I seem to use, Dramatic Tone, to make those dull grey clouds look like they are about to do something interesting.....

View south-west from my house, actually looking towards the population centre of Sydney but well hidden behind those hills. That's tidal Berowra Creek that I see, sand flats at low tide. All National Park in view and maybe only some ridge development eventually, but mostly trees that will be there forever.

Good thread, many thanks to FrankS009 for starting it.

Regards..... Guy

[PS, just noticed that the camera went to f/11 and I didn't notice. That's the penalty of playing with filters and scene modes etc if being lazy and not watching the screen]

Frankfurt, good old germany?
In reply to FrankS009, Feb 4, 2014

Hi this a night view of Frankfiurt.

Decide by yourself if it is good 'old' germany  

In the last months two of the really old skyscrapers had been already removed from the skyline, 2 days ago the university tower was blasted away by 1 ton of TNT.

Best regards,

Tom

A non-typical shot of North East Texas. This has been a pretty severe winter - I could find shots that are more what you might expect to see, but this is more recent...

Not great. Was trying out an Olympus XZ-1 about 3 years ago.
