Over the Clipboard
One of the most beautiful landscapes I've seen on the Svalbard. Here we were very close to the northernmost point we've reached during our cruise on the board of an icebreaker. In this moment we must have been over the 81° parallel, which means very far in the north. The captain said this was the only day in the whole summer season in which the vessel could reach a point so far in the north, so we were quite lucky.
I kinda think we are very lucky also thanx for shooting this so expertly and gracing the 1on1 group with it's graceness!-koduckgirl

I took my DSLR to work for the first time because I wanted to photograph the Hammersmith Bridge during my lunch break.
Unfortunately, it was an uncharacteristically sunny day in London and details got lost in the shadows.
I've converted to black and white in an attempt to rescue the shot
More information about the Hammersmith Bridge can be found on Wikipedia

Rotorua, Wai-o-tapu Champagne Pool
this pool is 62m deep. its surface temperature is 74 degrees C and bubbles due to carbon dioxide. The pool was formed 700 years ago by a hydrothermal eruption. Minerals contained in the water include gold, silver, mercury, sulphur, arsenic, thallium and antimony. They are depositing in the surrounding sinter ledge.
A close up of the orange ledge is located here
Very informative and formative in it's beauty!-koduckgirl
The magic of winter
The last day of 2005 couldn't have been more beautiful...
Powder snow, chilled air, blu sky, strong sunshine - an absolutely enjoyable walk to reach "Passo Viola" at 2.475 m (Switzerland, Val di Campo).
On this pic you can see a beautiful view at Pizzo Scalino (Italy) hidden by the clouds.
Couldn't have expressed it better myself!-koduckgirl
Here's a closeup of two Soviet-era cameras that I bought on eBay. The camera in the foreground, a Kiev-3, doesn't work, but it looks cool. The one in the background is a Zorki 4. It works just fine and is built like a Russian tank. I don't do a lot of black and white photography, but it seemed appropriate with this shot.
You may not do a lot of blk n wht photography Troy, but what you do do by looking at this shot, is primo!-koduckgirl

On the right path ...
Taken yesterday on a bright windy morning on the headland at Tynemouth, looking out over the North Sea. I'd just startled these gulls into taking off into the wind, which meant despite their valiant efforts at flapping they made zero progress and allowed me to take a load of close photos of them flying.
Naughty to make them fly into the wind but then again...so cool a photo!!-koduckgirl
contacts can be tricky...
as much as you won't want to believe me... i actually didn't set this up. it was the middle of the night, and i was sleeping in my contacts. i hopped out of bed because i couldn't find my contact... and my camera was on my desk because i hadn't put it away. the lights were off besides the glow of my computer, so for some odd reason i turned on the camera and snapped a picture just as i felt my contact fall from my cheek.
life is crazy sometimes.
We believe you!!! We believe you!!! great set up, story, and shot!-koduckgirl
