Welcome to The Weekly Image Thread

This thread will appear every Saturday (GMT) and is open for submissions and discussions about images and processing techniques until the next Saturday, or the new thread is started. If the thread is nearing full before the next Saturday, I may start a new thread and carry on until it fills or the next Saturday arrives and it is reasonably full in which case I will start another. Confused, so am I! From time to time the start could be delayed if I am unavailable.

Although this Weekly thread is in the Olympus SLR forum, we openly welcome users of all brands and models.

Please:

  1. Reply to this post and change the TITLE!
  2. Please reply to at least one other contribution, your replies encourage posters!!!
  3. If asked, please share your processing techniques or technical details.
  4. Please show the EXIF if possible. Please identify the lens used regardless of which camera was used to take the image. This helps people form opinions of the lens used with the body to possibly influence future acquisitions.
  5. If special lighting was used to create your image stating what was done may help others.

Thanks for joining and contributing this week.

More Battered Flowers

These were taken the same day as the previous image.  I have more should I need them, just warning you ahead of time!

Andrew

I did not do a mono version of this as it would not turn out well without a lot of work!

I went out for pictures on Friday.  It is getting harder to avoid crowds here.

I stopped at the dahlia garden and just got a few.  It suddenly filled with people and I got out of there.

All I got there was a dahlia...

a bee...

and a bird who had just caught something yummy and perched on a garden stake just long enough for me to change from C3 to S, zoom out all the way, and appreciate the fast and accurate autofocus of the M1.2 and 12-100.

U.S. Army National Guard armory across the street from the dahlia garden.

On to the rose garden but again people were there and I snapped a few and got out.

That's right, **** pictures, I mean fertilizer.  You're used to my **** pictures by now.

A local product from a worm farm.  They put the castings (****) in the soil.

I tried Fort Humboldt and it was deserted so I made quite a few there.

This is a Dolbeer Steam Donkey, a local invention.  It is a porta-power from the 19th century.  They were on skids.  The cable was attached to a tree and it could pull itself around the woods to bring power to a logging site and stay until the land was completely denuded.

This one still runs and used to be fired up one weekend per month from Spring to Fall to entertain visitors, along with the little gypsy locomotives and The Humboldt State University logging team.  Women throwing axes at targets and other subjects of interest.  None of this, of course, has happened since 2019.  Will old people remember 2019 as the last good year?

A larger one.

And, a much larger one.

That's all.  Rich

The faults are gorgeous.

I think I can buy Happy Frog at the local garden shop.

Re: More Battered Flowers

Your battered flowers are very nice.

It's really hot here in the west.

Flowers, not faults.  Blasted autocorrect.

Re: Untitled

Another interesting series Rich.

Lovely rich colours in the dahlia and a bonus bumble bee.

A very greedy little bird.

Also an interesting collection of machinery from yesteryear. The boilers corrode out but the cast iron bits seem to last forever.

Northlakes again.

Had to take the Boss to the eye specialist and took the opportunity to walk around the lake while I waited.

A black swan sound asleep on her nest.

Great Cormorant drying out after breakfast.

Crested Pigeon sunbaking.

An Eastern Water Dragon soaking up the sun to gain mobility.

Eurasian Coot

Loads of fruit but only the crows were eating it.

Honeyeater

Magpie gees here for the winter

Magpie Lark

Sacred Kingfisher chick.

Superb Fairywren

Young male just getting his breeding plumage.

Swamp Bloodwood

And one for Rich. I don't suppose you know Aus is about to launch a Mars rover to search for alien life.

This is the prototype that has been tested in the outback It will roam the Martian surface searching for flatulence from subterranean life. The gasses will be stored in the container at the back. When a sufficient quantity has been collected It will be used to propel the rover back to Earth.

Re: Veni, Vidi, Vici

Not to worry, Craig. I read that an hour before your correction and laughed. Thanks.

I know why you came, but what did you see, then conquer?

I'm wondering if you have smoke from the north, and if you've felt any of the great number of earthquakes in the swarm now happening to your south, just a bit north of Topaz Lake. It is the largest swarm I've seen in California. It looks menacing on the map. I wonder if Long Valley Caldera might be getting active.

Have a look at this. Rich

Re: Untitled

Thanks, Dicky.  Fort Humboldt is on a bluff, the first high ground inland from the beach.  It gets salty mist constantly.  Even the rebar inside concrete rusts.  Rich

Re: Northlakes again.

What a great set of pictures, Dicky.  I thought the swan was dead until I read your caption.  I like the crested pigeon, does it know where you live?  I've never seen a magpie goose before.  They are striking and they have a hook on their beak.  I would not hand feed them as I do non hooked geese.

I like the Martian Fart Collector very much.  I hope it is fortified to handle the flatulence now being added to the Martian atmosphere by The Chinese Communist Party.  Rich

Re: Untitled

Flowers are beautiful as always Rich a the bird is a great capture. The donkey engine was holding my interest until your mention of ladies with axes. My mind was flooded with some of your stimulating images from the logging events and the donkey engine was forgotten. I for one hope the event takes place next year and you are there to record it.

If you can find a suitable image in your archives please post and make an old man very happy. Or make a happy man feel very old.

Re: Northlakes again.

Great set of images Dicky. The variety of species and their colours never ceases to amaze me. We have a preponderance of little brown birds over here.

There's enough 'gas' produced on this planet to get the rover to Mars and beyond. I do hope there's sufficient on Mars for the return journey.

Thanks Dave.

If not we will conclude there is no alien life on Mars

Yesterday Morning

A couple from the garden as I was heading out.

Went to Dunstaffnage for a wander around. Lots of wild flowers.

Yacht heading for Dunstaffnage Bay anchorage.

Re: Yesterday Morning

What a beautiful pink rose Dave.

I'm hoping the thistles at the bottom of our yard will make a comeback this spring.

An unusual name for a yacht. I wonder what is in the plastic tube towards the stern? A torpedo perhaps?
