In semi lockdown I'm finally sorting through a lifetime of photos and inspired by what Craig and Andy recently posted I thought why not.
We travel a fair bit and there has to be some crackers in the vaults.
Good if we follow the Swellnet tradition of not naming or being too obvious.

This is a result of some of the post-processing required. The original was 4+ stops (deliberately) under-exposed. Some shadows have merged to form the "kink".

Haha, not quite. Here is one from last night, the same perspective, showing the shadows without the eclipse. Tried a different lens this time, a bit sharper. Nothing compared to Josh Bystrom's WOTD though, moonrise being after 9 pm here. :(

Blackers. Great photo, i love the two tones, the lighter highland rock is Anorthosite and the lower darker rock is mares composed of Basalt. Of course, both of those rock types are found here on Earth. AW.

That breaks my heart. Yeah, I know, circle of life and all that but that's pretty hard to unsee.

Sad. Must happen a lot.

When watching the Alone series, you become intensely aware how constantly hunted most animals are out there in the wild. The prey animals don't nibble in peace much, they have foxes, wolverines, bears, wolves, cougars, raptors etc. all sniffing, patrolling, stalking as they need an endless stream of kills to live and fight off the cold.

Every single day is eat quickly, run fast, hide often and hope you get lucky.

And we go surfing and watch TV.

When you consider how shy and elusive a leopard is that photo is next level.

First storms of the season today.

Thought these had come out lacking any detail or drama. Had a play in PS and all the info is there! Stoked!
