stunning photo beautiful light and tone LIKE* im going to the islands in may, cant wait it looks absolutely amazing !!!
I also read David Yeardon's book Basilicatta and was so excited that I had to visit Aliano and pay my tributes to Carlos Levi. He was a wonderful man. I met a few people in Aliano and am sure that I am now a better person.

Ah, Roeli, you must try to go into a deep hypnotic state, then think about the journey and where it began, concentrate on the names of the stations you passed through.
Only when you have the information will you be able to reveal the full journey.
I have done the journey only once each way in my life, but I can remember most of it - yes it was a truly wonderful and memorable trip!
The run down nature of the old Bank Building where RWS worked is
unfortunate but the visit to Dawson City will be well worth the drive if
you have any affinity for western history, Canadian western history that is
- not the shootem up crap our neighbours to the south espouse. The Casino
(run as a fund raising charity by the Territory) is worth a visit - for
some evening fun. But if you have the time - look back on the highway to
the turn off to the Dempster Highway, you will pass it on your drive from
Whitehorse. Really - it is worth the days drive to 70 km and 20 km past the
interpretive centre at Tombstone. This drive is like no other in North
America - gravel road though but is well graded constantly. Time of year
for your visit to the area - I recommend late April - early June or
September - less bugs to contend with if your camping and sun's angle.
Whitehorse is a small fun town. We flew back to be present at the recent
opening of the Kwan Lin Dun cultural centre - if your lucky there will be
events - and "new" art exhibits. For night fun the bar in the Best Western
Hotel has a Open Mike night I think its on Wednesday - worth the visit some
very talented singers in Whitehorse - like Clair Ness
I hope you are driving as the area known as Muncho Lake in BC is a
spectacular part of my province almost as spectacular as the famed Fraser
Canyon. I could go on - as I love BC and the North - Our drive took us up
the Dempster to Inuvik - but that's another tale :-)
I've been to John O'Groats and Dunnet Head. I've visited Ardnamurchan Point. On Saturday I was at the Lizard and Land's End. I need unromantically named Gasworks Road Lowestoft to get the set.
AXOTA, hello Jim hope alls well with you ?
thank you for your Y here Jim this vantage point is worth the short climb up the hill needed and i have taken shots from all around the viaduct but still never seen Harry Potter in the Blue Ford Anglia flying past :))
best wishes as always .. steve

Thank you! I lived for a while in Oban, and these islands were so readily accessible. Recently I married and have moved to Monmouthshire. I think it is the most beautiful county in the British Isles, but I miss the grandeur of - and my former proximity to - the Highlands. I used to say the weather is better down here, but not these last two weeks. I enjoyed photographing the puffins. In February I'm off to Rwanda to photograph gorillas. Small game! One of my best friends produces the David Attenborough programmes; he specialises in polar bears. Indeed you might have seen him at the end of Programme 3 of 'Frozen Planet'. Have a look at my Grand Canyon photos. They're very special.
