They range from the very well known to the aspiring, but all are worth following.

Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242640672CC G+

Sean Grace65,765Google Translate G+ Update Requires This Circle ShareYou may have seen my last post (or the many others) about Google Translate being integrated into the Google+ stream. So, now it is easier than ever to interact with people on the G+ network no matter what their native language is. Well, here is my Google Translate circle I have been building and sharing on G+ for some time. It's been awhile since I have shared this. I hope you enjoy it. But, I am looking to add to it with more Plussers posting great content from other lands (as well as English speakers like myself that want to use this Google feature top connect).I am including a notification for those of you already in this circle. Please recommend others to me that fit here. If you see this and feel you belong, please comment as well. If you post great content consistently you will be included in the next share of this circle.  Thanks to +Vic Gundotra and his team at G+ for continuing to integrate other Google tools with G+. This may be the best one yet. 2013-08-20 02:10:019115513CC G+

Jake Kern24,894The Silver DonutBeen wanting to do a circle share for a while, but I just haven't wanted to put in the work to get a group of 100 for another #GoldenDonut. Instead, I grabbed the top 500 from my Google relevancy algorithm. Then I removed a couple people who don't like being in circle shares & some pages so I could stretch the 500 a bit. (For instance, both +Melissa Bagley & +Melissa Ann Bagley Photography would be in the circle--in the top 25, actually--but I just included Melissa's personal profile even though you should circle both.)Many amazing people in here. Thank you for making this corner of the Internet worthwhile.Peace. #SilverDonut  2013-07-13 22:19:3849915225136CC G+
Danial Hallock7,489Collaborative CircleMy circle management strategy has always been a little structured and the people in it have always been excessively vetted before I'd be willing do endorse them.By now, most of you have probably heard of my circle "The Three Hundred" (http://goo.gl/kqE8h  :: 251 +1s and 48 reshares) where I vetted people through a series of iterative 'tests' to make sure that they were worth circling and, more importantly, worth endorsing and sharing with the world.Well, I also wanted to create a circle of everyone that those people thought were amazing.  So, I've been going through each of the Three Hundred, and circling up the people that they endorse and share in their circles.  The people that reoccur get added to this circle.For example, if Fred Flintstone shows up in +Sarah Rios, +Kate Savage, +Dede Craig King, and +Bobbi Jo Woods's circles; then he gets added to this circle, because he's obviously awesome.The idea is that everyone has some circle containing people in which they place a lot of faith; everyone has their "League of Extraordinary Circle Friends" (+Mike Elgan).  This circle is the first attempt to combine those circles into one super-project; and it's only the first pass (100/300 profiles scanned).So stay tuned, share, plus-one, and check out my other circle (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).#circleshare   #collaborativecircle   #sharingiscaring(Link to post: http://goo.gl/Ex9ai)2013-06-27 10:48:232111291385CC G+
Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576CC G+

Melissa Bryan25,213Circles Everywhere!Over the past couple of days I have been shared in some really awesome circles.  It reminded me how long it's been since I shared one of my own.  And with all the new people around, I figured it might be helpful.  These 200 lovely plussers were chosen by google's magic as being the most relevant to me (minus a few pages and the people who don't use G+).  I went through them and can assure you that these are all top notch characters (well, mostly :p).  They definitely make google+ the amazing place that it is.  Just, be prepared for shenanigans.  If you were notified, you are in the circle.  I don't ever notify, so hopefully you guys don't mind this one.2013-05-18 18:18:01200158599CC G+

Blair Kunkel5,687ATTENTION - Since my original snowball circle(Share Circle #1) circle grew so fast it reached over 2,000 members!  It has been brought to my attention that each time the circle is shared and added to YOUR circles, you are only able to add under 500 people. SO...to make sure that this circle of awesome people continues to grow, I have divided all 2,000 members into 7 other share circles(so far) and each of those share circles 2-7 are starting out with 400 members each. That will allow each circle to snowball up to 100 more members each.  Once each of those circles reach 500 members, I will create a new share circle...and so on and so on.--------------------------------------------------Welcome to SHARE CIRCLE #2--------------------------------------------------Want to be added to this SNOWBALL CIRCLE and increase the number or your followers?  To be added to this circle you must do these things in this order:1.  You must PLUS the post.2.  You must SHARE the post.3.  You must ADD the circle.(Remember, you can only have 5,000 people in your circles overall so make sure you have the room to add everyone in this circle first)4   And lastly, you must comment below when you have done the three above to let me know.Just want to remind you that in order for me to add you to this circle you MUST share this circle.  I always check the activity and I see who shares it and also +1's it too.

Danial Hallock6,197The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement  project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles.  As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle.  You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it!  If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #engagers  2013-04-20 13:17:463019914101CC G+

Islands In The Fog

The fog was particularly thick this weekend, but the strong sun gradually ate into it. Believe it or not there’s a a whole mountain hidden by that cloud. I took this photo from the footbridge attached to the rail bridge that goes across the river. What you’re looking at is the remains of the support pillars for the previous bridge.

I spent more time than usual processing this image. I was going for an almost painterly look which I think I mostly got.

LEGO Castles – The Rainbow Castle

Actually it’s called the LSD castle, but I just liked calling it the rainbow castle.

At first glance this is a relatively simple design, but take another look. Did you notice that the minifigs are color coordinated with the castle? And they eyeballs on the walkway into the castle?

And then look at the architecture of the castle itself. There’s some great detail work on the tower. Oh and what about the microfigures in the gateway?

Do Consumers Actually Want Modular Phones?

The Verge has an excellent article on Google’s Project Ara. The concept of a truly modular phone sounds like the holy grail to many tech enthusiasts.

Instead of having to pay $600 an replace your entire phone every 6 months to keep up with the latest and greatest, you will be able to just swap out a module (CPU or screen or something else) and update your existing phone. Project Ara isn’t a hack either. They’re thinking through all the elements quite carefully including the ability to hot swap modules and using magnets to hold everything in place tightly.

It’s bold and ambitious and runs directly contrary to the move throughout the IT industry (phones and computers) towards tighter and tighter integration with less replaceable components. That the geeks and hackers will want it is unquestionable, what’s reallyunknown i... more »

Are You Ready For A New Flash Gordon Movie?

There have been several attempts over the decades to bring Flash Gordon to life. The old Buster Crabbe cliffhanger serials are fun and capture the feel of the comic strip, but they are very, very (very, very, very) dated at this point. And of course there’s the classic 80′s movie that’s so camp it’s spectacular.

Other than that though the story of Flash Gordon on tv or in the cinema is pretty sad. The animated version was… nothing to talk about and we absolutely will not talk about SyFy’s horrendous reimagining.

It seems though that another attempt is underway courtesy of Bad Robot. Specifically JD Payne and Patrick McKay who are also writing the script for Star Trek 3 have put together what I guess would be termed a treatment and are currently trying to get a studio deal for a Flash Gordon movie. It seems thetwo are loo... more »

Firefly Fan Art: Disney’s Firefly

I’m sure the Disney haters will moan about what a ghastly notion this is, but personally I love this mashup of the Disney animation style and Firefly. Two things that probably don’t belong together, but I kind of want to see anyway. I particularly like that in this artist Stephen Byrne has added an actual firefly as well as having the ship in the background.

Jefferson Rock 3

A third photo of Jefferson Rock for you to enjoy. This weekend when I went up there the fog was still sitting heavily over the Shenandoah (as it often does at this time of year). The fog dramatically changes the feel of the location and I think that shows in this photo.

Spectacular Star Wars Action Figure Photography

The photos here are just a sampling from the work of Zahirphotowork. He takes Star Wars action figures, poses them in naturalistic and lifelike scenes and then carefully composes a photograph with forced perspective.

The results are quite incredible as you can see.

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Sentinels Attack

The X-Men movies seem to get short shrift from fandom. Admittedly they did produce the atrocious The Last Stand, but on the other hand the first two X-Men movies were solid and had a lot to do with making modern superhero movies credible and profitable.

And X-Men: First Class was a great movie that just couldn’t get the attention it deserved. So hopefully people pay a little more attention to Days of Future Past because of this clip of Sentinels attacking and the X-Men defending is anything to go by it should be very impressive.

Spring Blossoming

One of my sons enjoys taking photographs, but needs encouragement to actually do it. He’s been talking about pictures of spring flowers so today we went on a walk in our neighborhood and I pointed out various daffodils and other flowers that he could snap photos of.

I had my camera too, but I’d forgotten to check the battery after the last couple of week’s walks and it gave out early on.

I did however get these nice shots of one of our neighbor’s trees in full flower.

Best place to see all my photos in one spot is Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/eoghann/

Disney Fan Art: Gender Switching

Artist Sakimi chan has produced a series of images that reimagine classic Disney characters as the opposite gender  (and sexed up a bit too in most cases). Male Pocahontas and female Hades are pretty awesome but I think my vote goes for the male Cruella Deville as the winner.

Which is your favorite?

Check out the Facebook page for lots more great art. Some Disney, some anime inspired.

Game of Thrones Fan Art – Mother of Dragons

I may be hanged for saying this but I find Daenerys Targaryen to be one of the more boring characters in A Song of Ice and Fire. Particularly in the earlier books where here chapters were just painful to slog through. I tend to think a large portion of her popularity comes down to the dragons.

This image titled Mother of Dragons, however, is in no way boring.

Jefferson Rock 2

So the other day I posted a photo of Jefferson Rock (along with a little bit about the history of the area) but I said that it was pretty heavily processed and as a result stylized.

This shot, taken on the same day but from a different angle (obviously) has a more naturalistic feel to it. It has actualy been tone mapped (which is not the same thing as HDR) but in a much more subtle fashion.

To my eyes the image is almost too bright, but that does reflect the day quite well so I didn’t mess with that.

Gave myself a scare on my walk this morning.

I suffer from some pretty major vertigo. To the extent that even standing on a dining room  chair will make the ground swim and mess up my sense of balance.

Over the years I've adapted to it. I know what to focus on  when I'm looking around to minimize the effect and I can "learn" (for want of a better term) paths so I don't react as strongly to being near the edge of something.

Today I decided to walk along a route I've done 4 or 5 times before. I wasn't expecting any problems. Except... I did the route the opposite way to previously so the drop (and in places is it is pretty sheer) was on the other side of me. It completely through off my center of balance.

Now I wasn't in any real danger. This is a well maintained path, and it's easily wide enough to support one or two people.T... more »

SyFy Channel Picks Up 10 Episodes Of The Expanse Series

The SyFy Channel has been making some very interesting moves and announcement of late. The sort of stuff that ought to get science fiction fans interested assuming they’re not pouting and sulking about unimportant stuff like the channel’s name or other silliness. But for me this may be the biggest announcement so far.

According to Entertainment Weekly the SyFy Channel has issued a direct to series order for 10 episodes of a show based on The Expanse novels by James S.A. Corey (yes I know it’s two writers, it’s not necessary to tell me this fact every time I post about the books). So that means we don’t have to worry about how a pilot will do, we’ll get at least 10 episodes to enjoy.

And potentially there is a lot to enjoy. The Expanse series in book form currently consists of 4 novels and somenovellas. I... more »

How To Train Your Dragon 2 – New Trailer

I thought that How To Train Your Dragon was this close to being a perfect kids animated movie and I actually prefer it to many of the Pixar outings. So I’m really looking forward to the sequel How To Train Your Dragon 2 (where do they think up these amazing names?) which is set for a June 13th release.

And that’s not so far off now so they’re starting to ramp up the promotion with a new trailer. And I’ll say it’s this close to being the perfect trailer for a kids animated movie. We get dragons, drama, huge scale (like, big… big… big) oh and sheep tossing.

What more could you want?

Set it to full screen 1080p and be amazed.

Jefferson Rock

Jefferson Rock is a significant landmark in Harpers Ferry. It’s a little bit of a climb to get to it. Enough to have you out of breath, but not enough to put you off doing it.

It sits above the Shenadoah river and gives a commanding view of the surrounding land. The view was such that Thomas Jefferson (thus the name) stated that “this scene is worth a voyage across the Atlantic.”

Which to be honest seems a bit hyperbolic. But I imagine in his view from on top of the rock is substantially better than the ones tourists can get now, since it is far too unstable and no one is allowed on it. Instead we all take pictures of the rock itself…

This particular shot may not be to everyone’s tastes as I’ve used a much higher level of tone mapping than I usually do and as a result the image is more stylized and less naturalistic. But  Ireally like ... more »

James Gunn Confirms Thanos For Guardians of The Galaxy and Avengers 3

If you’ve been paying any sort of attention then really this confirmation isn’t exactly a surprise. Ever since Thanos appeared in the mid-credits teaser for The Avengers, it’s been clear where Marvel is heading and the references to further infinity stones in Thor: The Dark World and hints in what we’ve already seen in Guardians of the Galaxy continued to lay out the breadcrumbs.

That Thanos would make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy is just common sense based on what we’ve already seen on screen and what Marvel are hinting at in their comicbook prequel to the movie. But he’s still more the ultimate villain, not the current villain.

Clearly Avengers 3 is intended to wrap up this initial giant storyline before we move onto the next phase in Marvel’s ever growing plans (mappedout up to 202... more »

DC Superheroines (and Villains) 40′s Pinup Style

Quantum Mechanix have a series of posters on sale (or pre-sale in some cases) featuring the superheroines (and some of the villains as well) of the DC Universe drawn in classic 1940′s pinup style.

I think my personal favorite is a Rocketeer style Hawkgirl, but Wonder Woman is a close second.

So this happened yesterday...

The result was of course tears, followed by anger, followed by acting out.

Breaking the Kindle Fire was an accident, some of the behavior that followed distinctly wasn't.

Unfortunately the silly boy has yet to complete his punishment tasks as a result of that behavior. Which means the penalties are still in place, one of which is that I'm not even ordering a replacement until he's completed the tasks.

The replacement will either be a used or refurbished equivalent unit. Although it was an accident, he's not getting rewarded with one of the newer versions.

They really need to work on the toughness of these screens...

Disney Fan Art – Disney At Hogwarts

Everyone loves Disney characters (well almost everyone… Don’t be a Scrooge McDuck). And Harry Potter is kinda popular too so I hear.

Which is probably why artist Eira1893 drew this series of 8 scenes of Disney characters and pupils at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They seem to fit in rather well don’t they?

TV Review: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 1 Episode 17

Contains Spoilers… get over it.

So the show runners for Agent’s of SHIELD have been saying all season long that they’re building up to something. And with episode 17 finally… the Rock has come back to…  it really did all come together.

In fact there’s really very little to criticise in Turn, Turn, Turn. Not only was it action packed (I think they’ve been saving up their budget) but the tension just kept ratcheting up and up.

Obviously this is an episode that couldn’t happen without Captain America: The Winter Solider but equally obviously they knew that and they’ve been carefully seeding the previous episodes with elements that dovetailed perfectly here. By the end of the episode not only is SHIELD shattered, but in many ways so is the team. Yes technically they are stillfunctioning as a gro... more »

Lunchtime Visitor

So we have this lovely area outside our office with a pond, and paths and plants. It’s a nice place to take a lunch time walk. And since there is water, it’s pretty common to see ducks either swimming or just wandering about.

This is a little more unusual though.

This article pretty well addresses my concern about the direction Star Wars: Episode VII is going. Perhaps once we get a bit more information about the casting and a plot synopsis my worries will seem silly.

But at the moment, we just seem to get a never ending list of re-hashes. R2D2, now Tatooine (really aren't there any other planets in this particular Galaxy far far away?), Chewbacca, and on and on.

I am really hoping for something new, not a fanboy remix.

Doctor Who Slippers – K-9

I’m not really a slipper wearer. I usually just wander round the house in socks or bare feet, but I might be tempted by these K-9 slippers.

K-9 occupies a strange place in Doctor Who. He actually belongs to a period where the show became increasingly silly. And in many ways the presence of a talking android dog is part of that silliness.

But at the same time, it’s K-9!

Captain America Nail Art

Could there be a better way to celebrate the release of Captain America: Winter Solider (and it’s box office dominance) than painting your nails?

Well okay possibly, but if you could paint your nails this well you might think differently.

It’s a cleverly themed set of nails with a Winter Solider nail, Black Widow nail and the middle three making up Captain America. There are details about what nail polish was used at the website.

Dragon Sword Fighter Force Are Absolutely Not Game Of Thrones LEGO Minifigures

Let’s just be very clear about this. First of all these minifigs are designed and sold by Citizen Brick, not by LEGO and secondly they’re called Dragon Sword Fighter Force. No mention of either games or thrones there at all.

And while the bonus minifigure Sir Typesalot might look somewhat like a famous fantasy author, that’s purely circumstantial.

No Dragon Sword Fighter Force features characters like Lady Redrobes, Frosty the Dead Man, Johnny Crowbeard, King Aayhole, Sir James of House Inbredd and Lady Orphanboy of House Alldead. All of home have no more than a passing resemblance to the characters of a major fantasy series (currently unfinished) which has been adapted into a popular HBO series.

Robin

This is an American Robin, a different bird to the European Robin although named after it because of the red markings.

I happened on it during my walk last weekend. It was a surprisingly brave bird and didn’t immediately fly away when I came blundering onto the scene. I wasn’t incredibly close, but enough so that I could use my telephoto lens to to get a halfway decent shot.

I think I misjudged the F stop though. Because although it focussed correctly the bird is not as sharply in focus as I would have liked. Of course a bigger zoom would have been a plus too, but that’s expensive… stopping down is free.

Yes There Is A Battlestar Galactica Movie In The Works

There’s been on and off talk about a Battlestar Galactica movie for a few years now and at one point Bryan Singer was attached as director. I’m not sure if that is still the case but according to Variety Unversal have picked Jack Paglen (Transcendence and Prometheus 2) to write the script for the movie. Glen Larson seems to be attached in some sort of Producer role.

They also say that it will be a complete reimagining of the story, so not a sequel or prequel to either of the previous versions then.

I’m fine with that. But can we skip the “human” Cylons this time round please? Actually if we could just scrap all the meta-physical crap that got loaded in that would be ideal.

What Do We Know About The Constantine Pilot?

Website ShockTillYouDrop.com claim to have read the script to the pilot episode of NBC’s Constantine and they’ve published a few teaser facts about it.

Some might consider this spoiler territory, but I don’t because they really only address the earliest elements of the plot and the characters. It’s the sort of thing you get in episode synopsis all the time.

It seems the show (or at least the pilot) will be set in New York, but Constantine himself will be British. He does wear his trench coat and he is a smart arse. So far so good.

Other characters include Manny, an Angel, Liv Parson’s (whose father knew John), Papa Midnite, a man who can dream the future and Chaz, Constantine’s driver.

The trick with this show is going to be keeping the special something that makes John Constantine who heis so that ... more »

Doctor Who Re-Review: Season 7 Episode 3 – A Town Called Mercy

I didn’t really do a proper full review of this episode last time round, more of a quick reaction post. My general feelings are unchanged with a subsequent viewing but there are some things I could address in more detail and with a different perspective now.

I noted originally that this had some of the trappings of classic Who and it does because here we have the Doctor and companions arrive in the wrong place due to TARDIS navigation failure and get mixed up in something that has nothing at all to do with them. Nobody summoned him, no one is looking for him (despite the clever before credits teaser). It’s a welcome change.

Also the frantic pace of Season 7 seems just a bit less frantic with this episode. Perhaps because the focus is narrowed to a very small number of characters and the others arejust ... more »

The Baby Faced Avengers

Artist Ben Oliver has produced these fun caricatures of the Avengers characters with baby faces.

I’ve seen quite a few kiddie Avenger cartoons before, but what sets this one apart is the more realistic style of the baby faces and proportions. And yet there’s still enough of the adult  version in each character to make them unmistakable.

Depending on your tastes you may find this creepy or funny.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other – A Pictoral Tribute To DC’s Live Action Superhero Incarnations

DC has three top tier superheroes. The trinity as they’re often referred to. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. All of them have appeared in one form or another in live action (either movies or tv) and this image by hitokirivader represents the changes in costumes over the years.

It also, unfortunately, makes a rather sad statement about how DC has repeatedly failed with Wonder Woman.

If you wanted to pad things out a bit there are a couple of Wonder Woman tv pilots with different costumes. But then you’d have to included other representations of Batman and Superman too.

Let us hope that when Gal Gadot makes it onto our screens we have a credible modern Wonder Woman and who knows.. maybe she’ll get an actual movie of her own.

Captain America Gets The Avengers Bump?

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has raked in an impressive $37 million for it’s opening Friday and they’re projecting just shy of $100 million by the time the weekend is over.  Which would make it a good 30% higher than the takings for Captain America: The First Avenger’s first weekend. An impressive jump by anyone’s standards.

It’s also higher than Thor: The Dark World’s opening Friday. Thor 2, in turn raked in a good 30% increase over the first movie in it’s opening weekend and currently sits a good $20 million higher in box office than the original.

Iron Man 3 meanwhile managed almost $100 million more in box office sales than either Iron Man 2 or Iron Man.

Are you noticing a pattern here?

In fact even if you adjust for inflation all of Marvel’s post-Avengers movies have donesignificantly be... more »

Tonight I will still not be watching Game Of Thrones on HBO.

I'll probably get round to it one day.

Looking Down On Harper’s Ferry

Another photo from one of my weekly walks around Harper’s Ferry. It’ seems there’s just no shortage of wonderful views in that town.

In this case I’m on the (steep) path up to Jefferson’s Rock (yes that Jefferson) looking down on the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers with the ruins of St. John’s Episcopal church in the foreground.

They say that grey, cloudy days are bad for landscape photography, but that’s overly simplistic. With the right angle and lighting they can actually be very atmospheric.

You’d be hard pushed to identify this as Spring though wouldn’t you?
