Re: Swimming Elephants at Taronga Zoo (Sydney, Australia)

Incoming is a fantastic image.....even better if you gave it a close cropping....have a go?

No shot, except for the oddity

I walked past this sight initially.   After looking it over, I didn't care for the location - yet I turned back, because it was just odd to see this horse and carriage unattended.   Maybe there was an urgent call to nature is all I could figure.   It is what it is - but it was a mistake to allow the 3 lights above/beyond the carriage to be exhibited (the carriage's definition/shape becomes confused).

Re: No shot, except for the oddity

Odd indeed....is it still there? A humanless carriage on a road for the horseless variety. Actually..the lights are ok!

Ah, I really miss the desert states... There are so many places that keep that primordial feeling.

Re: HDR and Gorilla

Excellent shot of the gorilla, its spooky in a way because you can see the intelligence in their eyes.

I love all of this....you seem to get to all the wild places.

Hi Paul

Glad you like it. This is hardly a wild place; just on the edge of Kokopo township. I said the buy probably hasn’t seen NY -- but he might well have. There is a culture here about when you are in the village you are a villager. In fact, this village is a very big one and many people in in are significantly wealthy, business owners, senior public servants, etc.

The councillor speaking is a man of enough financial standing for the bank to genuflect when he walks through the door, but you see him as you see him in the picture. If he is flying off to Australia or China or wherever to do business, he will climb into a collar and tie and a suit. My contact is studying for her masters; there  are plenty of PhDs around. But when we are in the village doing trad stuff, it’s laplaps and t-shirts like everyone else.

Cheers, geoff

Maybe it’s safe because nasty guys don’t know how to handle a horse! 

Actually, the whole background is a bit confusing, and I could have done with less road, but for all that, worth the snap! Sometimes you’ve just gotta lift the camera and press the shutter button.

Bob, did you check my post? There's a pic there especially for you.

Cheers, geoff

Re: Colorado River Potash Rd

Good pictures. I think the first two need a bit of contrast. Well taken.

Re: Majestic Neuschwanstein Castle

Nice pic!!! Terrific atmosphere. I look at stuff like that and I think: "How cold was that back in the day when it was first built?" Then I thinbk: "No wonder they used to wrap themselves in bear skins and stuff!"

All with Pana G5, 45-150mm kit lens

I enjoyed visiting Taronga Zoo in Sydney, where I watched young elephants swim and have fun in their huge pool. I had to follow the air bubbles and guess where they would come up

Incoming underwater elephant!

"Aww, but Mom! Do I have to get out of the pool?"

"I've had a bath - time to get dirty again!"

Pleasant pictures, liked much to see, well taken.
