I’ve got a photo from the next curve down from that spot (I estimate) showing the archway tunnel further down the pass. Lovely area.

Have you done the Gross Glockner Alpine Road, Chris?

I did the Gross Glockner Pass road with my parents way back in 1960.  I was one of my first memories of seeing snow (since I lived in the West Indies).

We we noticed that a black dot was moving on the side of the left peak......






Ive done a bit of climbing in my younger days....but not sure I would tackle that snowy peak alone.8-).

I have done the St Bernard in the MG on a rally - that was fun, maybe I can find some images ...

...am I the Only one who is using Capture NX-D ?...really..?.. I think Photoshop (Ps) is popular among many because it's pretty consistent and in such universal use.  To learn all the software out there, in depth is more than most people can bear.

Now with Lightroom sharing Camera Raw with Ps to some extent it reinforces the compulsion that many photographers find when faced with the quite bewildering choices out there.

Some time back I tried to find an alternative to Lightroom because of the CC issue, but for me there wasn't one.  So along with Lr comes Ps, fortunately Adobe seem to have realised that CC is impractical for many serious and professional photographers, many of whom have vast libraries of very large image files some running to very many terabytes which is impractical to store online, not to mention the risks involve with such a venture in a commercial setting.  Adobe seem to be continuing to develop the Classic version alongside the CC version.

I have used NX-D It's good and probably gets more from an NEF than any other processor but I have a set routine with my images and unless there is something which isn't working well with the Lr, Ps combo, I stick with the devil I know.

There is quite a reasonable choice of image editing software but nothing which matches the contribution which Lightroom brings with it. Not as far as I am concerned anyway.

One from the past 17/3/2004 high in the Swiss Alps we were filming the Railway on the dramatic Bernina Pass. This is a Nikon D1X image, what a super camera that was!

Indeed it was, I was looking at some shots from Florida taken on a D1X and I was surprised just how sharp they are.

Do you use the Apple Pencil for your edits?

Were the flashes just on the roof and fired remotely?
It’s very impressive the detail and lighting.
If I was being critical.... I wonder if the camera would have been better a bit higher to lift the car light trails off the building and posts?:devil:

Is it worth splitting this thread at post #23 as I feel historic houses are in a quite separate category from landscapes?

The UK has many beautiful and famous historic houses from stately homes to humble cottages such as Beatrix Potter's cottage Hill Top at Hawkshead to the royal palaces and the likes of Blenheim Palace.  Most are worthy beautiful or spectacular places.

I think these themed threads are a good way to show off our work but we need to keep on topic, else it becomes a mishmash.

Thank you JK, another nice thread and plenty of opportunity throughout the seasons too.

I am fresh back from Muncaster Castle, birds, plants and old buildings...  Must offload the images.

Just back from Tuscany with a selection of "landscape" images.

Didn't have room to carry the Nikon with me this trip so these are all phone pics, the quality is not great but I hope they convey a sense of the beauty of Scully's surroundings - the last one a view over the clouds from around 30,000 feet ....

Not bad from a mobile phone Chris. This is another high image this time with a D1X and 24-70mm AF-S a few years ago. Gormer Glacier SE of Zermatt Switzerland my recent picture shows how much this Glacier has shrunk since I first photographed it in 1960!!! Nikon DSLR with 24-70 mm AF-S lens.

I guess climate change has more or less wiped out the glacier.
I can remember visiting to it as a kid in the summer of 1960 it was still very cold there.

There are some wonderful images posted here

I have a few to share but will need to first find them. Too much chasing birds and native orchids.

Here are a few until I find more

#1 Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens

Located in the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria

Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden is the original garden of the historic Burnham Beeches estate, renowned for its extensive water features.




#2 Craig's Hut Sunrise

Craig’s Hut is one of the most famous High Country huts. Perched atop Clear Hills, Craig’s Hut offers stunning views of the ranges and is one of the region’s most photographed landmarks.

First built as a set for The Man From Snowy River film, the hut has now become an iconic symbol of Australia’s settler history.

Drive, horse-ride, mountain-bike, fly or hike. But however you get to the hut, make sure to pack a picnic or book a spot on a local tour to Craig’s Hut and enjoy a catered feast, complete with mountain tales.





#3 Stepping stones at Big Peninsula Tunnel


As part of the McMahons Creek and Reefton goldfield, the Yarra River was known to have carried good gold, and from the 1850's the riverbed underwent alluvial mining and was sluiced for gold.

Sluicing was the practice of using running water to break down gold-bearing earth. At Big Peninsula miners were reported to obtain around five to six grains of gold per dish considerably short of the 480 grains that comprised an ounce.

In 1864, the Yarra River deviated at Big Peninsula. A tunnel was hand dug through the narrowest point of the rocky hillside to divert water flow and expose nearly tow miles of natural riverbed for gold extraction purposes. This allowed miners to scour a river bed without having to worry about strong or deep water flow.

The tunnel is around 2 metres in height and width, 25 metres long and was so effective that the former course of the river has become overgrown with vegetation and is now incorporated into the surrounding scrub.

Today it is a lovely place to explore, enjoy a picnic or a swim on a hot day. The watercourse at the tunnel entrance has created a terrific little pool that is almost spa-like. There are formed stepping stones across the river that allow viewing from both sides very easy, although the river is accessed by a steep track.

Melbourne by night.  Just as I remember it from 2007/8.  Never went during the day as I was based near Geelong.

I agree with you but the islands you can just see in the photos is to the left Ibiza and to the right side Formentera, which is beautiful.

The other picture of the mountain I didnt realise also has the islands in it (to the left by the trees). I usually take these photos early in the day as the sun is rising as this is best time to see long distance.  The horizon is not level!! No excuse really.

Nice set Jonathan

Here are a few from Bright last Autumn. We couldn't go this year due to Covid restrictions. We have visited there a couple of times for Autumn.


Bright is a town in Victoria, Australia. It’s a base for exploring the peaks of Mount Buffalo National Park and Alpine National Park as well as Mount Hotham, a popular ski resort. The region is also known for wineries and fall foliage. Bright is a starting point for the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, a hiking and cycling path. Bright Museum, in the town’s former train station, documents rail and gold rush history. #1

With Covid restrictions being lifted in our state, the wife and I took a 2HR drive to Walhalla

Some info from the internet
https://www.travelvictoria.com.au/walhalla/

Walhalla is a picturesque village, located north of Moe and Traralgon. Nestled in a steep sided valley at the southern edge of the Victorian Alps, the town is surrounded by a national park, lush forests and fern gullies.

During the gold rush of the 1860s, Walhalla was one of Australia's richest towns and a mecca for thousands of gold seekers. While the town is now home to only a handful of permanent residents, tourism has taken over and Walhalla receives around 100,000 visitors each year. Those taking the scenic drive to Walhalla can step back in time to visit this beautifully preserved village full of heritage buildings including old hotels, shops, school and churches.

The town centre features a pub, cafes, corner store, gift store and museum. There are plenty of options for accommodation, ranging from B&Bs and hotels, to basic rooms.

Walhalla is storybook magical in autumn, thanks to the colourful deciduous trees that line the town's streets and the random scatterings of wildflowers.

Visitors can experience the town's gold mining heritage with a tour of the Long Tunnel Extended Gold Mine accessing Cohens Reef - a three kilometre vein of gold running through the town.

The Walhalla Goldfields Railway runs from Walhalla through Stringers Creek Gorge to Thomson Station, operating three days per week. Walhalla also has an eerier side, which can be experienced on a ghost tour to the old cemetery on the hill.

Located on the edge of forested national park, Walhalla is also a popular base for camping, fishing, bushwalking and four wheel driving. The snow fields of Mount Baw Baw and Mount St Gwinear are both within a comfortable drive of Walhalla.


It was quite busy while we were there, however timing of taking the shots allowed me to make it look a little deserted.

Apologies for the number of images. Admin please delete if not appropriate
