St. Louis/MO Bridges – Continued   14 comments

It’s quite a while since I last published any of my pictures from our „RailTrailsRoadTrip“ in October last year. So I really need to continue. Here’s a picture of Eads Bridge. We passed underneath it on our 2-hour cruise of the waterfron to St. Louis.

Eads Bridge, St. Louis/MO

This picture has been edited, I must admit, both with ACDSee Ultimate 9 [for a light equalizer] and with easyHDR [for enhancement of details], but I think this brings out the fine metal structure very well, even if it does look a tad artificial.

Lower Slaughter, GB   8 comments

For my first picture here after my pause in blogging, I’ve chosen one that I took in 2013 in the Cotswolds, in the picturesque little village of Lower Slaughter:

The original photo has been (slightly) enhanced with EasyHDR, a programme I have lately come to like.

Clouds, Rocks, and Water

An extreme wide-angle lens can create quite dramatic effects, as here in a picture taken across the Blue Mesa Reservoir on the Gunnison River in the Curecanti National Recreation Area in Colorado.

Texas Still Life: Rooster, Longhorn Skull, and Truck in Luckenbach/TX   8 comments

Usually I don’t do any editing with my pictures [except for some cropping]. but I think this one here lent itself to changing it from colour to sepia:

Airforce 1/2   6 comments

That is what Lyndon B. Johnson’s small jet – the one that was able to land on the airstrip of the LBJ ranch in Stonewall, Texas – was sometimes called in reference to its smaller size as compared to the regular Airforce One. Here a detail:

So wurde manchmal Lyndon B. Johnson’s kleinerer Jet – derjenige, der auf der Landebahn der LBJ Ranch in Stonewall, Texas landen konnte – genannt in Anspielung auf seine geringere Größe, verglichen mit der regulären Airforce One. Hier ein Detail:
