Share your photos! Travel shots, photoblogs, etc.
« on: August 21, 2014, 12:49:53 AM »
I was shocked to find that there is apparently no thread dedicated to sharing everyone's travel, art, and other photo captures (if there is one, I must have missed it - point me in the right direction!). So I'm starting one right here and now with the selfish motive of sharing a gallery of images from a trip earlier this year (in March) to Iceland. But the unselfish part is I hope this will inspire others to share their own photos, whether amateur or professional, artistic or purely documentary, new or old. Show us where you've been and what you see through your lens(es)!

To kick things off here's Iceland Part 1 (of 3)

Warning: Do not visit Oshyan's galleries if you easily become jealous of other people's vacations.. He has some killer photos.

well you might inspire me to get in gear and upload a few pics - which I haven't done in years. Did work on a batch lately but was nearly all with family.
Here's one though from July in Ireland (click for 768*1024):

Oh my god, I love super long piers!! That's awesome. Thanks for showing that. :)

We have one in the Bay Area, no longer functional unfortunately, but it used to be 3.5 miles long! http://en.wikipedia....g/wiki/Berkeley_Pier

Honestly...I thought 1.33Miles was enough to walk down the pier haha, couldn't imagine walking almost 3x that haha - Worth it though on the Southend one...there is a lovely restaurant at the end, a little ice-cream parlor and the Life Boat Station (With a gift shop). You could get a train to the end of the pier instead of walking, but...where's the fun in that?! :P

A few panoramas from my last trip, (these have been reduced to about 20-30% of their full size):

Pink flamingoes at Walvis Bayw:
Walvis Bay.jpgShare your photos! Travel shots, photoblogs, etc.

Jamestown from about halfway up Jacob's Ladderw (supposedly 699 or 700 steps, I forgot to count):
Jamestown.jpgShare your photos! Travel shots, photoblogs, etc.

Ascension Islandw, the uninhabited side.  Unfortunately we weren't in the 15% of ships who actually get to land, there's no pier, (just a rock outcrop), so if the sea isn't dead flat you're out of luck.

Mindelow:

Pop quiz: Who can identify the type of the half submerged boat to the left of the ARMAS ferry?

For interest: 12,515 geotagged digital photos.

I enjoy taking pictures of flowers, and some of them end up on 500px:

Woah, looks like I missed a bunch. Thanks guys, great stuff!

Those are some awesome panoramas. And what an epic journey! Is that a single sailing excursion?

Jibz, I too am a flower photo geek. I haven't taken so many lately, but in my archives are many, many flowers, bees, etc. :D You've got some really nice examples over there on 500px. thanks for sharing. :)

That was a 6 week Perth (Australia) to Harwich (England) via Mauritius, Reunion, Sth Africa (Durban, Mossel Bay, Capetown), Namibia, St Helena, Ascension (no landing, too rough), Cape Verde, Canary Islands, Portugal, and France.  Most stops were 4-8 hours as it was a repositioning cruise, (which also means it was cheap :) ).

Followed by 5 months in Devon (England).

For anyone who watched War Horse, this is the ruin they used for the homestead in its original condition.

Pop quiz answer
It's a Russian hydrofoil (Raketa).

Haha! I normally am not a picture guy.

But once, for Thanksgiving 2012 before my life went sideways, I took a crazy roadtrip "just to drive". Starting from Cape Cod, Massachusetts USA, I just "started driving". I made it to Detroit Michigan!

:tellme:   8)

And I ended up with some surprisingly good pictures of cars in GM World!

On the note of Pictures of Flowers, I grabbed this one a good few months ago at our local park :)
