Which way


Australia

The Kuranda Scenic Railway is a name for the railway line that runs from Cairns, Queensland, Australia, to the nearby town of Kuranda in the rainforest.
A spectacular journey comprises unsurpassed views of dense rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls. 

The Cairns-Kuranda Railway was constructed between 1882 and 1891 and even today is considered an engineering feat of tremendous magnitude. Hundreds of men were employed to build the 15 hand-made tunnels and 37 bridges that stand as a monument to the pioneers of tropical North Queensland who lost their lives while working on the railway.

Focus

in response to Paula's Thursday's Special - FOCUS
We all want our images to be tack sharp and in focus, but there are situations when we prefer to have some parts of the image in blur i.e. out of focus to better isolate the subject we want to focus on.

Traces of the Past

in response to Paula's B&W Sunday - TRACES OF THE PAST

Ballestas Islands, Peru

The Paracas Candelabra is a well-known prehistoric geoglyph found on the northern face of the Paracas Peninsula at Pisco Bay in Peru. Pottery found nearby has been radio carbon dated to 200 BC, the time of the Paracas culture. The design is cut two feet into the soil, with stones possibly from a later date placed around it. The figure is 181 m tall, large enough to be seen 12 miles at sea.

Manneken Peace

in response to Monday Mural

Brussels
Manneken Pis... 
(meaning "Little Man Pees" in Dutch)

...is the symbol of Brussels folklore and an unmissable tourist attraction in the capital. Numerous legends have sprung up around this symbolic Brussels figure. The most commonly heard is that of a little boy who, by performing this famous call of nature, reputedly extinguished the burning fuse of a bomb destined for the Grand-Place.

Beehive ginger

in response to Narami's Tuesdays of TEXTURE

Beehive ginger thrives in warm, frost-free climates that are similar to its native habitat of India and China. Like other plants in the Zingiber genus, the cone-like bracts, which are not anatomically flowers, are much more showy than the actual flowers, which protrude from the bracts.

Shadow

This week, hunt for shadows and incorporate them into your shot. The shadow can be the focal point of the image, or simply a detail that adds texture and makes the scene a bit more dynamic.

Brussels vs. Liège

in response to Sue's image-in-ing

Brussels
The Belgian waffle, whether from Liege or from Brussels, is known worldwide. The waffle from Liege is thick and contains pearl sugar which delightfully crunches. Enjoy it warm for more flavor. Its cousin, on the other hand, the waffle from Brussels: it's lighter and eaten with powdered sugar or covered with whipped cream and strawberries.
