Finally I had a short walk in the Old Town of Hamina. The Old Town is build in a circular pattern and at the center of it is the town hall:

Took this yesterday in Nolte Park just outside Enumclaw. It was a nice walk around the lake.

A view of and from the Reunion Tower in Dallas

looking down at Dealey Plaza to the north, and the swollen Trinity River to the west, bathed in the setting sun. :)

Some stuff from Carrickfergus "Edward the Bruce fair"

Wow, Sozo, is that a Peregrine falcon?! I love them!! (and owls, and wolves best of all rraawrr!) Beautiful photos.

Someone brought these to my attention on Facebook, and I thought I'd share as they're exquisite, particularly the ones in black and white, but I can't get over the texture of the flour movement echoing that of the dancers.

"Russian photographer Alexander Yakovlev makes his images of professional dancers come alive by adding dynamic elements like exploding flour."

Nice sun rises!

My post was a sunset, but thank you none the less! Your pictures of the flooding, etc are impressive!

^^^ I had seen those as well, Patrycja, and thought they were amazing! I didn't look closely enough, though, and thought they were taken underwater! I had recently learned that underwater engagement photos is a new trend, so just assumed it was water I saw and thought it looked really cool! :)

You're welcome, Walter, glad you like them :) Breathtaking, aren't they?! I can't stop staring at the first one with the light shades in the fabric folds (that and his body - aesthetically, it is a beautiful, refined instrument). The fabric reminds me of when I saw La Pieta a few years back in (I think) the AGO and it brought me to tears. And that was just a replica.

Amazing is right, Dd! Would you mind posting a couple of the underwater engagement photos you refer to when you get a chance? I'm curious about what they look like. Thanks :)

And here we thought flour was just for baking. Fascinating how people think to put to other uses elements we associate with certain paths. I love it!

Fascinating, indeed, Patrycja! Just when I was getting my head wrapped around underwater photography, now there is flour! This is the one that I especially thought was underwater:

Here are a few examples of underwater engagement photos:

Thanks, Dd! I misunderstood the 'engagement' part, thinking about subjects engaging with the water or something. THIS I did not expect. New trend? A bit cheesy idea lol, but beautiful photos in and of themselves. Thanks for sharing!

You're welcome, Sozo, and thanks again for these. Gorgeous! Love the second and last one.

Here are some owl photos I've come across. Such a diverse species:

I came across these on the National Geographic site. I must experience both! Breathtaking.

England—The gnarled landscape of Wistman’s Wood—moss-draped boulders, ferns, grass, lichen-covered dwarf oaks—is shrouded in fog and myth. Fairies, druids, and hellhounds are said to haunt this part of Dartmoor National Park.

Iceland—Beneath the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier—part of Vatnajökull, one of the largest ice caps in Europe—a man in a boat is dwarfed by the walls of an ice cave. Summer melting expands the tunnel, and the river swells to fill it.

Here's some pictures I took with my cell phone today. Sand sculptures in Lappeenranta harbour:
