“homeward bound” was taken along the Rye foreshore, Mornington Peninsula, Australia. It’s a group of eight pelicans heading home late afternoon. They crept up on me as I caught them out of the cornner of my eye. I had my auto focus turned on which wouldn’t lock onto anything due to the limited light and camera in manual mode so I pretty much had to hope for the best
“the 25 steps” was taken near the Beijing section of the Great Wall of China last year when I was there with work for the Olympic Games. It’s about an hours drive out of Beijing, through rural town which are the size of cities! It was a misty and foggy day and I was annoyed that I wasn’t able to see the whole section of the wall but the atmosphere created by the mist and fog was amazing.
