"Celestrial Body Rising Above Santa Elena"
A good example of the same location and day of my Infra Red photograph here. (Different camera, lens, and perspective)
The night time offered me a dramatic different view and mood, compared to my photograph taken at dawn's first light!

I am a huge fan of Bluesfest .. looking back at 2013 which is the 1st year I had my Canon 6d which was incredible in low light and could do justice to the artists.

Allen Toussaint, Joan Armatrading. Robert Cray, Rodriguez, Ruthie Foster, Taj Mahal, Tedeschi and Trucks

2002 Bali bombings occurred on 12 October 2002 in the tourist district of Kuta on the Indonesian island of Bali. The attack killed 202 people.
We were there, on the other side of the Island scuba diving. The following morning we arrived in Kuta, amid the broken glass and mourning people.
I took this shot the next day just outside the city, at one of the numerous Hindu shrines that follow along the coastline.

Bluesfest 2014 - another tremendous year of artists.  The passion, the music and the performance.

Yep we were there. Both times  (Jimbaran bay event as well as Kuta)..  Cant believe that mastermind has now been released.  On both occasions, we changed our plans for that evening as I was too sunburnt..........  ***.

 

We've been a total of eight times - including our Honeymoon.  We stay around Nusa Dua

Yep, I spent a week staying with friends, they backed onto the mayoral Square.   I couldn't get over how late the kids stayed up each night, the city squares at night were full of families, people went to eat at 9pm and headed home around 11pm as children need to be in bed at midnight !!  The food, the music was just amazing.  Madrid has one of the biggest fish markets in Europe, and their obsession for Jamon (cured pork which i didn't really like) and it can be so expensive.   Street Art is amazing and we did a walking Tour.

"After the Storm" - Delicate Arch, Arches National Park.
I was disappointed when we first arrived at Delicate Arch, on our first trip. The area was crowded with tourists and really took away from the emotional impact of this place. A storm blew in, so we decide to put on our Gore Tex and hunker down until it passed. The clouds parted just as the sun was about to set and I took one shot!
Best of all, the rain had scared away every single person except us!!

Mexico .. one of my guys, a Mexican,  said why don't you come along for a holiday.  I stayed with an Air Traffic Controller and his American Wife, in fact there were 3 American wives in the wider family living in a compound of 4 units, and the women told me they prefer to live in Mexico City rather than the USA because they have a higher standard of living and Mexicans are more family oriented.  All their relatives travel to Mexico City for Dental and Surgery work.  They took me to the Copa Final soccer match to watch Mexico City play Arsenal the Argentine champions.  Police  with shields had to protect the small number Arsenal supporters in front of our private box, when Arsenal won it rained bottles on them with screaming threats of death.  We then stayed in a 6 Star resort managed by his son-in law on the island of Cozumel, 1st and only time I had a butler 😄and I nearly drowned scuba diving, my 2nd lesson 😏  My apartment was on the beach with Cruise Liners just off shore. Then up to Santiago de Querétaro where another son in law managed a massive Johnson and Johnson factory, famous for its aqueduct but where no one I meet spoke English except my guy and his wife. I hired an English guide with a car and we visited the beautiful town of San Miguel de Allende, a town of 2 halves, one half with 1000's of American retirees and the other for the native Mexicans.  Seems middle income Americans do live very well in retirement in Mexico and have moved into many of these beautiful towns, something I seemed to have missed on American TV programs focused on building walls.  Then onto Dolores which was where the start of the Mexican Revolution against the Spanish happened.  People still pilgrimage to the old church, and perform self-flagellation (see 4th last photo, whip hanging from his left side), they sell whips outside, and later sleep on mats in a large hall cared by nuns. Catholics whom worship a dark brown Virgin Mary, a white Jesus was not saleable to the early converts.   A fascinating place and nothing like I had been programmed by American TV and documentaries.  So much history, seeing school children on excursions on a Sunday learning the history of the Aztecs and Mayans in the amazing museums in the centre of Mexico city, the imposing Spanish architecture, but the dreadful history of them purging all other native religions in the name of Catholicism.  Slaughtering their priests, even chasing the Mayans into Central and South America to exterminate them.

A few photos of Aircraft shot during my 30 years working for Qantas.  The Junkers is owned by Lufthansa and was run up outside our workspace whilst we were working in Frankfurt on a Flight Planning system.  The 744's were at LAX at our Maintenance base and the A330 was brand new at Airbus Toulouse when we were stuck in Europe because of the grounding of the A380 Fleet and were privileged to hitch a ride back on its Delivery Flight via Singapore (picked up Freight) and then onto Sydney.

So where is this @Rosco8?

 

Tulum?

 

Yep .. spot on ...  Mayan trading town, did a day trip across on the ferry then bus from Cozumel.  The ruins were really interesting.  Very different to the Pyramid of the Sun and Moon (other ruin pics) and the Avenue of the Dead and the Administration offices and library, they were an advanced civilisation outside Mexico City, and its fascinating that they don't know who built the lower layers, pre dates the Aztecs who completed additional layers.    A few more pics of Tullum.

Rosco -

Looking at you Istanbul shots was great.

This is a long exposure I took 20 years ago, at the Roman cisterns under Istanbul.

Thanks .. Istanbul should be on everyone's bucket list, fantastic for photography, we were going to be there for 2 nights and then work our way across to Gallipoli but stayed 5 nights as we were hooked.  So much history to see and the Cisterns were absolutely stunning.  I didn't have a tripod with me so was shooting at 12500 ISO with my 6D.

I had just brought my wide angle zoom, a Canon 16-35mm so with nice weather grabbed one of my boys and his friend and took the boat for a spin down Parramatta River to try it out ... was a 2-3m swell running under the Harbour Bridge so nipped into Darling harbour instead.

Well aren't we a busy thread 😄

 

Change of pace ...  and news not quality .. yet to make the press, a drug bust in Sydney's Southwest, and next door to me !!!  

A convoy of Detectives arrived at 8am this morning, followed by Forensics and then Command and then the Press.  We thought something fatal.  But then firetrucks turned up .. huge M crop in the Greenhouse.          Newspaper report .just out 2379 cannabis plants with an estimated potential street value of more than $7.1 million.
