  • That's what I thought of. There are some local creeks (Austin, TX) that have wagon runs in their beds. Very cool.

    I was waiting for him to drive off the dock on that segue carrying a $12,000 lens. Where are the outtakes? :)

  • Your clue made me immediately think of Lillehammer, but I'll guess instead near Interlaken.
  • Also, I offered a free turn since I didn't have anything ready.

    Thanks. It appears there is a path that goes from what's marked as the shrine on google maps west to the house just west of the trees, in a sort of S shape. I bet it's along that path. I was ...

    I haven't found the exact spot, but I suspect it is within the bounds here. Is it visible on google maps? I assume it's the octagonal structure referred to here: "August Mitsch, with the aid of two ...
  • The White Lady of Hermannhof shrine?
  • I was really thinking Arkansas or Missouri, but if I was off a state, Kentucky plus neighbors seemed like a better bet. :) Now, if it's one of those two, you've narrowed it down. The product is ...
  • I thought I saw a cross and perhaps a grave marker. I have no idea where this is, but the search is turning up a bunch of really interesting structures. I notice you have at least one book on ...

  • Reminds me of Hardangerfjord where my maternal grandfather's family came from.
  • Replied in Clue #2
    I was documenting and researching a pair of spiders in my front yard. The key to the identification turned out to be the shape of the epigynum in one of my images. I didn't realize I even had an ...
  • Replied in Clue #2
    Heheh - if I recall correctly, the most popular name is Elm St., and the second most common is 1st St., hence your need for a city. Edit: after a bit of googling, apparently it depends on who you ...
  • Created discussion thread First Macro Panorama
    Melipotis indomita, female I have a UV light on my porch to attract moths, usually small ones. This one was bigger than the frame of my camera with MP-E 65mm lens mounted. So I took three shots and ...
  • Nice twist to the challenge.
  • Replied in Frost Bank Tower
    Right you are. Here's a google street view that is about as close is reasonably possible. On the night in question, it was very foggy. What you see is the fog illuminated by the flood lights ...

    A comparison has been made to an owl.
