    This was at a "de Dion-Bouton" cars rally, because the de Dion was from our village, so they meet by the monument to him. (he invented something revolutionary to do with the back wheels)

    Today is black and white. This is Pierrefonds, the castle where they filmed the BBS series "Merlin":

    The whole castle was renovated/rebuilt in the late 19th century I think, or the early 20th. (getting confused between Iona abbey and this castle)

    Erm, last photo to show. Just a cool red sky.

    Looks like the sky is on fire. Beautiful colours. :)

    Nice sky pic. I have a sunset pic that is very similar in colour to that one. When you see a sky like that, you just have to take a picture of it! :)

    I have too many pictures of skies like that to even know where they all are. That bit of sky (above our garden) does see some amazing ones.

    Here are two from my school trip in Spain that I edited this morning. They are supposed to be overdone, especially the second one.

    Those backpacks look like they're glowing!

    I like the ruins in the second image. That was a neat perspective to take the picture from.

    Thanks!

    Here's one I did today; it's a mountainside monastery, when the fog was coming in up from the bay.

    Nice! That monastery reminds me of Dracula's castle or something though. :D

    The ruins at the top (see column photo [composite of the ruins]) were really spooky, as they're on the edge of a precipice and it was a complete white-out.

    That pillar looks like it's just kind of morphing out of the floor... neat pic!

    Ruins are awesome. I'd love to go to Europe and see some. Australia is fresh out of ruins.

    I'll edit and post some of the pictures of ruins. Uploading in a few minutes.

    This is the original picture of the column. The edge is basically a drop.

    This is the small group that walked up to the peak. We left out bags at the monastery, with the others, and came up with the gym teacher (taking the picture). That was also right on the edge of a precipice.

    You all look pretty relaxed for perching on the very edge of a precipice.....
