Torre de Hercules

Hercules’ Tower (Torre de Hecules) is the oldest Roman lighthouse that is still in use today.

Located in the city of A Coruna in Spain’s Galicia region, the lighthouse was built in the 2nd century (CE).

This image was created in the morning of a cloudless summer’s day. Although many photographers prefer some cloud to provide contrast in the sky, I actually like a clear blue sky, at least sometimes.

In these conditions a polarising filter is an important part of the toolkit.

Image was processed using Lightroom CC and Photoshop, and there was some distortion correction and a small amount of object (people) removal applied.

Great post by @brentsimmons about How To Support NetNewsWire.

Appreciated each of the thoughtful ways of helping. The last point made me stop and think:

Or: skip helping us, and, instead, help people who need help more than we do. Those people should not be hard to find.

Upcoming Book by Jill Heinerth—Into the Planet

I am looking forward to the upcoming release of my friend Jill Heinerth’s autobiographical book Into the Planet.

Jill is an extraordinary cave diver, explorer, photographer, videographer, writer and scientist. We’ve met on several occasions over the years, and she is one of these people who can enthrall an audience—small or large—with ease.

This video tells Jill’s story better than I ever could.

Into the Planet is due to be released in late August, and I look forward to reading what I am sure will be an interesting and engrossing story.

Enjoyed the final episode of Game of Thrones. After having been disappointed by the endings of previously much liked series (Lost and BSG), I am happy with the overall conclusion to this epic story.

A seemingly simple feature, but likely to be a game changer

Pleased that an m43 camera made the list (rumours of the death of m43 are a tad premature), pleased that it is a Panasonic model, and pleased that its my camera of choice!
