Sunset at Sydney Harbor Bridge
The Sydney Harbour Bridge, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia connects the Sydney central business district and the North Shore.

The bridge was opened in 1932. It's the world's widest long-span bridge, and it is the tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 440 feet (134 m) from top to water level.

Bridge climbing tours are available, and climbers are clearly visible on the highest arch in this image.

The bridge is nicknamed "The Coathanger" because of its arch-based design.

Free Photowalk, Historic Manteo NC Waterfront PDF Print E-mail

Join me Saturday, October 1, 2011, on free photo walk in historic downtown Manteo waterfront on North Carolina's Outer Banks.  The event is part of the Scott Kelby WorldWide Photo Walk, with more than 900 scheduled walks, and 17,000 participating registered photographers, so far.

The idea is to gather with like minded photographers, explore the boardwalk-lined waterfront and surrounding area of historic seafaring Manteo.  The town features a wonderful mix of old and new, aesthetically-blended docks, shops, cafes, picket fences, and parks, all lining narrow old-town streets. The centerpieces are Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse – right on the docks, and a recreation of the Elizabeth II, the ship which brought the first English settlers to the New World. There are unlimited photo opportunities within just a few blocks, and there are no hills, making this a wonderful photo walk opportunity.  Afterwards, we'll gather for coffee and breakfast, sharing photos and stories.  If you wish, you can participate in a competition with images made during the event, with cool Scott Kelby prizes up for grabs at the local and worldwide level.

We'll start at 6:15am, Saturday, October 1.  Sunrise is at 6:57, so we'll have ample opportunities in the pre-dawn light, and then with the low light just after sunrise.

The event is free, open to photographers of all levels, but limited to the first 50 people that register.  Registration is required.  To register, and for more information, visit http://tinyurl.com/wwpw-manteo.

The same day, my friend and exceptional photographer, Matt Gibson, is also leading a free photo walk.  Matt's walk in Corolla, preceded by a cook out at his Nags Head gallery.  We are attending each other's walks, and encouraging participants to make a full day of it here on the Outer Banks by signing up for both walks!  Register for Matt's here:  http://tinyurl.com/wwpw-corolla.

"Safari" in Norfolk PDF Print E-mail

A Siamang at Virginia Zoo in Norfolk, VA.

The siamang is the largest member of the gibbon family. Siamangs range through Southeast Asia and are found in some numbers on the Malay Peninsula and Sumatra. They are arboreal, preferring the middle canopy level, but will travel from tree tops to low bushes while feeding. Like other primates, they are omnivores; though roughly half of their diet consists of leaves, siamangs also eat fruit, insects, nuts, small animals, birds and birds' eggs. They are endangered and their numbers are declining as humans invade their habitat, often killing the mothers while capturing the young for a lucrative pet market.





A Malayan Tiger at Virginia Zoo in Norfolk, VA.

Malayan tigers are endangered and recent counts showed there may be as few as 600 in the wild. It is perhaps the smallest subspecies of tiger, with an average weight of nearly 300 pounds for adult males and just over 200 pounds for females. In the wild, Malayan tigers mainly prey on deer and wild boar. They are found in the tropical forests of the southern and central Malay Peninsula.





A male bald eagle swoops to attack an invader in its habitat at the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk, VA.

The bald eagle was chosen as the national symbol in 1782 because of its long life, great strength, and majestic looks. The bald eagle is not bald. It has white feathers on its head, neck, and tail, and was named using the Old English word, “bald,” which means white. However, immature eagles frequently are misidentified as golden eagles because of their dark color and because the white has not developed on their heads. Eagles are mature at 4 to 5 years old. Eagles’ wingspans range an impressive 6.5 to 7.5 feet (they are second in size only to the California condors).
