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.

How did you manage to visit Rome with so few people there? We went last February and the queues to get into the Vatican were enough to decide we wouldn't bother.

Thanks Ciora!

Sheila- Rome was packed, I was there in July which is high season for sure. I picked a good time to go to St. Peters, right as it opened. It seems everybody waits in line for the Vatican museum first, the Basilica comes later. We did it in reverse order and found smaller crowds on offer, though I am sure luck was also a factor.
