Ireland’s ‘Wild Atlantic Coast.’   Another Piece Of Remarkable.

Ireland’s ‘Wild Atlantic Coast.’ Another Piece Of Remarkable.

I’m in the town of Bantry, a pretty place wrapped in mountains on three sides and then tucked neatly in between the Sheep’s Head and the Berea Peninsula. It's blessed with expansive water views and sloping, lush green landscapes that meander...

"God sends meat and the Devil sends Cooks"

I had this pulled up months ago ... but never completed reading
Glad I revisited ... enjoyable read ;~)
Brought to mind guilds from The Pillars of the Earth ~ Key Follett ... a novel I really enjoyed ... these guilds were stone masons & builders

"Vulnerati non Victi" ... "Wounded not Defeated"
Reminds me of this verse "we may be hard pressed on many sides but not crushed"

I hope you are well and Bryce ... did you ever get to share with him the "Blueberry Banter ~ Blueberry Blues?

Be well with all your being ;~) Randall ...

A Wise Chef told me a long time ago, "The kitchen is NOT for the faint of heart"....If you can't stand the heat, get the 'Hell' out of purgatory! LOL!

The Seductive Lure Of A Sublime Sunset.

The Seductive Lure Of A Sublime Sunset.

From Vancouver to Vanuatu I have been privileged to have watched that fiery ball, we refer to as the sun sink ever so slowly into the sea or disappear behind a mountain range, leaving in it's wake a sky resplendent with a riot of unimaginable...

If I had a dollar for all the sunsets I've photographed ...
But, as you say, Paul, they're all different. Probably because the cloud formations are so different from day to day, as different as the weather. The only thing I can add to this comprehensive post is that I often find the best shots are after the crowds dissipate, when the sun has already sunk beneath the horizon and there's a sudden transformation as the setting sunrays hit the clouds or peep through them slightly differently.
And then there's the silhouettes of trees and people, as you have capably demonstrated. I've been in many a sunrise and sunset situation at some famous landmark or other and can't resist taking pics of the others taking pics. After all, mate, Mother Nature displays her wares in various wonderful and often strange ways, but, "There's nowt queerer than folk!"

Christianity At The Crossroads. A Journey To Tanah Taraja.

Christianity At The Crossroads. A Journey To Tanah Taraja.

The Indonesian island of Sulawesi rests in the Sea of Celebes resembling giant a spider that has fallen awkwardly from the ceiling and spread its legs across the azure blue waters as if desperately trying to reach the shores of Borneo to the west...

CityVP Manjit Hi and thanks for stopping by. Hope I didn't paint a too gloomy a picture as the island is truly a remarkable place. I have always been of the notion that " if you don't go, you'll never know" Also Sulawesi, although close to the Philippines is part of Indonesia.

Intriguing but weird. Who would know that such a place existed until a rare exposition is written on Sulawesi. Any place that thinks a mountain looks like a vagina and thinks savage animal sacrifice is a 21st Century practice and then mutilates what should be paradise is a place I will have heeded as a warning, to stay away from. Great writing however, really got to know things I would not have known about this strange Philippine island.

Pretty In Pink. One Of The Great Wonders Of The Kalahari Desert.

Pretty In Pink. One Of The Great Wonders Of The Kalahari Desert.

A crecent shaped moon rises slowly above the gigantic Makgadikgadi Pan, seemingly held aloft by children with long sticks. This illusion is caused by the branches of long dead trees that line the distant edge of the pan that seems to suspend the...

Paul, All the wading birds are marvels. I've been fortunate to have a heron decide to go frog gigging in a backyard water feature. But there is nothing like a mass of flamingos taking wing like a pink cloud. I envy you that wonderful sight.
