HDR Clearinghouse

Here is a grab bag of HDR Images from various places that I've visited over the past couple of years. First up we have the Ring of Kerry in Ireland.

Followed by St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin.

And then we have St. Peter's in Rome.

The Trevi Fountain, also in Rome.

The Denver Center for Performing Arts.

Byodo-in is a Buddhist temple built on Oahu as an exact replica of the temple of the same name near Kyoto. The Kyoto version is actually featured on the 10-yen coin. Funnily enough, I saw a book, 1001 Gardens to See Before You Die, that included the garden of the Japanese Byodo-in, but used a file photograph of the Oahu version, complete with the distinctive volcanic cliffs in the background.

Finally we have a view of Honolulu Harbor at sunset.

Schnoodle Snow Balls

While much of the snow from late last week melted over the weekend, the back yard still has a fair covering. Fritz the Wonder Schnoodle (TM) is absolutely fascinated by snowballs, and will 'fetch' them all afternoon long. He will dig like crazy searching for the missing ball, until a new one is formed and lobbed. We had a photo shoot this afternoon with dad chucking the snowballs while I tried to capture him in mid pounce. I never really succeeded with that, but I got some fun photos anyway.
