Columnar basalt like the "Giant's Causeway" in Northern Ireland and in some areas of Eastern Washington State. Geology gets around. You can feel the weather in the tone of these. Excellent photos.

M9; 50mm f/1.0 w/8x ND; 1/250s @ f/4; ISO 80
Re-inspired my India, I have found a few more pics digging through...
Lloyd, Matt thanks, your comments are really appreciated Lloyd, our winters are not that cold. Typical mid winters of 14 -16 degC max, with mins about 5 -10 degC but it really the wind chill and the dramatic change in lighting In many ways it great for shots, as it adds to the mood.
Dan Very nice shots, with the interesting angle and POV !
Ashwin, awesome set of revisited shots! Love the shot of the old man in the doorway, woman in orange in a sea of turquoise green chairs and the framing of the woman as the keeper of the bell. Great stuff

Nice Orange sari in the turqouise chairs , great shot Ashwin!
Matt, am still enjoying your shots with the 50Noct! Keep sharing!
Charles, those 28Cron shots are beautiful! The pp is fantastic!
Mike, nice street work with the 50Cron!
Dan, another fine shot with the CV 50/1.5 Nokton!
My new lens Elmar 3,8/24...
great series..i like it
congrat on your new lens..
nice shot though..
Mike: Nicely seen as usual. You capture some very funny moments and juxtapositions. The little girl's body position and expression tells it all. Is she mimicking something she's seen, or, is that just a classic stance that she's arrived at on her own? The butterfly and the two on the bench are too funny.
Charles: Excellent shoreline photos (as usual). You have a great eye for composition and detail.
Mike: Great set. The photo with the little girl and cup is my favorite of the bunch.
Fotoingo: Wonderful shots from Mallorca. The shot from the cathedral is stunning.
Dan: Love the b&w Public Market Center photo. The high-contrast processing gives it a heightened nighttime feel.
Matt: Love the color shot of the flowers. Outstanding use of the Noctilux. Wonderfully dreamy. Missed the b&w version. Will go back through the earlier pages to find it.
Ashwin: More amazing shots from India. I especially like the shot of the old man entering the doorway.
Ceh: Wonderful shots (as always). I particularly like the last one with the kid on the scooter. The arrangement of the people in that one is very cool.
Finally got to go on a trip where I could have time to take more than a few photos. I was in Vegas for the NAB tradeshow and roped off a several time slots for photography.
The Sahara hotel is closing next month, so that was my first stop. Everything on this trip was shot with the 24 lux.
I think the first and second photos are from the Mirage. I walked through a lot of hotels on my second day there, so I'm a little foggy about the exact location of some of the shots. The third and fourth are from Caesar's Palace.
David, great shots!
Another of the graffitti , this time using the bi-colour filter from Color Efex pro
the cool part was I was able to do a user created one, greenish for the top 1/5 for the glass, and then a gradual shift to Orange to the bottom for the bricks!
for once Post processing wasnt a chore, it was fun!
I love the shapes, lines and sharp details in the photo above. I also enjoy wondering what the chap on the right hand side of the photo is doing? (appears to be standing on a Ledge) . . . . . nothing like a little mystery.
Thanks to DavidE, Lloyd, Matt, Ashwin, Joe, Steve, Charles, & Gero for your comments and kind words, they are always appreciated.

CEH: Congrats on the new lens. I love the way it renders. My fav is the first one, with the guy on the bike on the right.
David: Great stuff all around. LOVE those shots of the Sahara in particular.
Robert (Dude): Nice graffiti shot. The processing is perfect!
Dan: Three great set! Your processing just jumps off the screen! Love the shots of Seward Park. (Glad to see you using that CV Ultron 28/1.9. I it's a much under appreciated gem. As is the Nokton 50/1.5... As you shots attest.)
