    Cheers Geoff.

    Hope you don't mind, but have moved my reply to the Howling at the Moon Thread for continuity.

    Howling at the Moon Thread.

    I woke up in the tower

    And there the moon, molten silver in a great cauldron,
    Was being poured
    Through the eye of a needle
    Spun onto bobbins and sold to poets
    For sewing their eyelids together
    So they can sing better.

    Ted Hughes, from Visiting the Moon

    Ok, so maybe I got carried away. I blame the moon. ;-)

    These words are worth a thousand pictures : )

    Otherwise, I totally agree. Awesome.

    :-D

    BTW Ted Hughes' collection from which this comes, Moon Whales, is IMO one of his very best. It's supposedly for children, which I think is just an excuse to be whimsical and hilarious. It's out of print but can be obtained from libraries or secondhand.

  • Jos,

    I love where these threads go, leave one alone for a couple of days and then next peek there are 5 pages!
    All fluff, but Wonderful none the less.

  • Islander,

    The Moon is the cauldron
    and poets’ brains the fuel- eyes
    are not needed when
    words are the tool-
    sing and shriek and sigh and whimper
    groan and howl and whisper
    -know, someone, somewhere, listens
    -to you-

    Thanks Jackson, great series of shots!
    My bit of Sydney… (the most obvious - The Sydney Opera House) :D

    Here's one for the nature-stalkers - what happens when the wildlife does not want its photo taken!

    A bear-raising story. :-)

    A bear-raising story.

    definitely a Kodiak Moment!

  • JacksonP,

    Orpheus - by David Sylvian. Seemed apposite.

    ...Sleepers sleep as we row the boat
    Just you, the weather, and I gave up hope
    But all of the hurdles that fell in our laps
    Were fuel for the fire and straw for our backs
    Still the voices have stories to tell
    Of the power struggles in heaven and hell
    But we feel secure against such mighty dreams
    As Orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may bring
    Tell me, I've still a lot to learn
    Understand, these fires never stop
    Please believe, when this joke is tired of laughing
    I will hear the promise of my Orpheus sing

    Anyway, back to the photos.

    The Opera House's in a ear?

    Found this somewhat interesting. Clearly these buildings have been undermined and the foundation appear to be under water, and yet the one on the right seems to be fully restored.

    Me neither, and my wife works there so I visit often. What a wonderful shot.

    Mesmerising photos Alex, have you used a filter on the camera to keep the sky from blowing out?

  • Alex Efimoff, in reply to Nora Leggs,

    I use exposure fusion technique, no filters in that particular case.

    Nice Alex. I was going for the same sort of variable plains, but didn't take the time to get the right angle.

    Still, liked the patterned wall.
