What a coincidence! I was about to enter a similar photo when I noticed yours: far superior to mine, taken with the 'compact' I had at the time (2005). I was with a friend whose father was in charge of laying the rails on the T-B Railway. We were with an Australian friend of hers who has set up a museum near the Commonwealth War Graves at the bottom of the Railway. After years of research she is writing a book on the subject.

Awesome; eerie too.

On Nikon publishes Nikkor lens 80th anniversary video article (33 comments in total)

Who was that designed to impress? Dreadful 'musak' and hardly informative. Having watched the video I still know nothing about how lenses are made, let alone Nikon's. Maybe the makers of the clip did not know either.

Old and new. The memorial at Albuhera, Spain, on the 200th anniversary of the battle there, fought during the Peninsular War. The 'Duke of Wellington' is 3 from the left.

Along with the title, I forgot to add a short description: ''Helicopter in Tree'' perhaps (?)

On Venice cruise in the Cruise Ship challenge (1 comment in total)

I really should have titled this ''Venice Peril'': 100 of these huge ships visit every month, navigating a narrow waterway through the middle of the city. An accident waiting to happen.
