Brazil (by [brett walker])
“A serene well-to-do town, beautifully nestled and safe among those majestic mountains, winding down for the night, coolly indifferent to the makeshift pockets at the heart of it where the activity is just heating up. Even the satellite dishes seem to be on guard, acting as sentries to the goings-on that will be taking place below them through the night. The complimentary colours accentuate the opposing facets of how differently life is lived within this tale of two cities.”

Misty Ruins (by jamescharlick)
Mow Cop Castle is a folly built in 1754 by Randle Wilbraham as an elaborate summerhouse looking like a medieval fortress and round tower.
We intended to arrive ahead of sunset to get some nice views over the surrounding countryside but after a gloriously sunny day a dense fog descended upon us to soak up the remainder of the daylight.
The landscape and animal photography of Pentti Sammallahti is often minimal, sometimes whimsical and always wonderful.
