That's one crazy piece of art there, Rob. I kind of like it, but there's no way I'd have it in my home!

And there, in reality, lies a problem. I've known the artist for several years, but other than grasping that his name is Juan, I can't ever remember the surname. He often lunches at my alternative restaurant where I think he does the early Colombe d'Or (St-Paul de Vence) routine. I have repeatedly been offered sculptures gratis, and the problem is two-fold: they wouldn't suit (or probably even fit!) my apartment and there's no way I'd donate anything to the Community here, so the garden area's out of contention; thiirty years ago, yes, but today - not a chance! Different types of people, mostly.

It's really a shame: he makes beautiful stuff from junk: broken tiles, bits of window ledge etc. and he is very fond of Polynesian styles and phallic symbolism; quite remarkable in stone!

He may not be as good a photographer as you are.  I don't know what a better portfolio of photos of his work would do for him or you, but...

Neither do I, Bruce, but your quotation of my post revealed the effects of another of my dyslexic finger's tricks, my neologism: probelm!

Yes, there are times when things could be done to help others, but nothing's ever as simple as that. The relationship complications would stretch way out of my comfort zone, and I've no intentions of going there, trust me!

I was able to go back to the Badlands, really a small area North of Toronto that looks somewhat like Badlands. My tripod did some creeping and some images were soft, so I got a little creative. The biggest problem is trying to avoid footprints!!

This, I may say, was shot at great personal risk: not from unhappy people but from frostbite!

Snow on the mountains above 300 metres... sheeesh! Or swish, if that's your thing.

This is somebody else's thing.

Thank you for the comments and your interest, Rob, Francois, Eric and Walter. Rob's comments certainly made me laugh. Really, the area is more like a large gully in a park. Nothing as dramatic or exotic as a swish in the mountains! Had I been facing the mountains without, at least snow shoes, I think I would be taking a swig in the mountains!

Lovely. Much to emulate. Not a critique, but the best I could do.

This is where I think the slow flow of water works best and even this flow could have a bit more shutter or a two shot shutter priority and paint back in some of the detail around the rocks. Paolo showed some shoreline shots where I find the use of extended shutter times not nearly as exciting but I honestly think because I've come to like one in a series, but not all in a series. Personal taste.

One this shot, I'd like to see the tops of the trees, upper right a bit less "hot."

Just to show that sunny Mallorca is as bloody cold and damp as anywhere else in winter, here's yesterday's view from the penthouse; the snow-capped mountain sits just behind Pollensa town and is called Tomir; the further away one with the flattish top (just cloud cover) is Puig Major, higher than anything in Britain at 1445 metres. It used to house an early-warning system along with air traffic control...  not sure what it does now. It freezes every winter; hate to have to drive the track up there to service the radar.

There's a road starts at the base (already high up) within a military complex with machine gun guard at the gate; we stopped there thirty years ago to get our bearings and consult our map, and the guard instantly upped the piece. We waved and drove off rapidly.
