Iceland : Fagrifoss waterfall near the Lakagígar region.

If I remember correctly, Fagrifoss means beautiful waterfall or something like that.

The whole Lakagígar area is absolutely amazing.

I can see what looks like a creature with wings coming out of the water on the right hand section. Now I see it, I can not unsee it! Can anyone else?

We should have travelled down to Cornwall yesterday for Easter to stay with my partners daughter who lives in St. Just, near to Lands End, but..........

 

I should be looking at scenes like this instead of 4 walls.

Oh well, maybe next year!

Cape Palliser, North Island, NZ.

To the north west, the Tasman Sea..............

................whereas to the south-east, the Pacific. Five hundred miles to Chatham Island, then another three thousand to the Antarctic.

There's a lighthouse, of course, but that's not really "nature" so I'll only put it up if I get requests!

These are 2 images of a very, very special place:  Torrey Pines beach, between La Jolla Shores and Del Mar just north of San Diego, California.  First is aerial view from Gliderpot, and second at the beach near flat Rock looking back towards La Jolla Shores.   For me the most beautiful beach in the world

Needless to say,  beach access has been closed now due to COVID-19 pandemic

Just some kind of alpine fashion accessory.

This is what happens when you spend several months locked in a cramped space…

I guess many of us now know how it feels.

Unfortunately the Keukenhof Gardens are closed. However they do have some videos on their site. The gardeners are just keeping the garden as perfect as if they were open.

This is their empty parking lot being transformed into a picture of a pair of lungs: dronewatch.nl. Also there: short but impressive 8k video of bulb fields.

More drone footage of the empty Keukenhof gardens here.

Thanks Wim. I loved the 8k video. It's a bit dismal to see the Keukenhog garden so empty during the peak season.

 

Netherlands is in my repeat list and hopefully soon.

Steve Hyde, I’m calling you out. Love the Puffin. Nearest I got to one was in Bar Harbor, Maine. They were somewhere off the mainland but since it was nesting season, the tour boats had shut down. I nearly cried.

I could look at Puffin pictures all day, and am fascinated about how they can line up those tiny fish in their beaks.

Hi Betty, sorry I’ve only just seen this. This was taken on Skomer Island, Wales where the birds are protected. They allow 200 per day on the island but if you suffer with long lens or camera gear envy it’s a place to avoid. Crazy thing is the birds are so tame, even though they’re small, I got by fine with my 70-210. A great day though and what I love most about my photography, it takes me to places I wouldn’t normally visit. Anyway, here’s a few more. These three have all caught something. 🙂

I'm sorry to say Betty is no longer here... for reasons best not gone into. I miss her.
