Bedouin Fire

Egypt 2009
Dancing by camp fire light.
The night I saw Saturn through a telescope. 
An awe inspiring evening.

All that he could see see see...

july 2009
Dolphins in the Moray Firth, near Inverness, Scotland.

I silently cried like an idiot when they appeared.  The lady standing next to me also had tears, and I could see her squeezing the hand of the man next to her.  

For this reason I will never be able to go to anywhere like SeaWorld.  These animals are magnificent.  I would cry because they aren't free.  They frolicked for 1/2 hour maybe 4 metres from the shore. 

Nature at its best, raw and beautiful all at the same time.

Nature will over come # 2

Angkor Wat, March 2013

More Angkor Wat, the tree roots are searching out water, through the fabric of the building.  Like an iceberg, the top is a lot smaller than the part that should not be in your eyes view.

Nature will over come, just as the Earth keeps spinning and you never feel it doing it.  It reminds me of this poem.

How fantastic is it that it was still light out at nearly 5pm last night, spring is coming.  I cant wait.

Nature will over come # 1

At Angkor Wat, the trees are gargantuan.  They are reclaiming the land.  They are slowly ripping the buildings from its foundation.  What would happen if humans were wiped from the Earth...  Nature would over come and prevail.

under a cloud of smog

traffic in Hanoi, Vietnam
The traffic in Hanoi was bedlam.  Everyone driving all over the place.  As far as I know they don't have a Tube system.  The life and the air quality would be greatly be improved.  It wont happen.

The sky hints of blue above the smog.

Cemetery in paddy field in Vietnam.

On the way to Halong Bay

We saw many of these throughout the country.
According to our guide these head stones are place where the people owned the land or worked it.  The people work around it and it makes it easier for them to visit their ancestors.
