This is the first of many images I will post from my recent trip to Australia. It is from the first state I visited, Tasmania. It rained on the walk up to this lookout over the bay and the weather naturally encouraged me to think in monochrome! The image is composed of two shots, overlapped and stitched together. I’m glad to be participating in Leanne’s weekly challenge again and I appreciate so much that she took such care in showing my husband and me around in Melbourne and on the Great Ocean Road.

I shot this a few years ago while in Ireland. The bridge, located near Galway in western Ireland, was featured in the movie The Quiet Man starring John Wayne.
Not only a quiet lake in the midst of the emerald hills for which Ireland is known, Lough Gur and its surrounding area comprise an important archaeological site. The surrounding area abounds with vestiges of human habitation going back 3,000 years. These include ring forts, a hill fort, grange stones, crannogs, and a tower house.
The afternoon light meant everything in this shot of a coastal marsh in North Carolina.
I wish I could remember exactly where I stopped for this photograph. Let me just say I think it’s a lovely trestle over the Connecticut River in New England.
This fanciful serpent created by metal sculptor, Ricardo Breceda, goes in and out of the sand and across a road in Anza Borrego Desert Park in California. There are over 100 metal sculptures in the park, all created by Breceda and most representing prehistoric or mythical creatures.
The sunset was warm and glowing at this popular hiking trail near home in Southern California.
