Hi Tiffany. On our indigenous TV station I have seen the current carvers at work and it is satisfying to know that the tradition is alive despite the history of dispossession and persecution of the First Nations.Their art style reminds me of the Ainus, the tribal people of Japan who also held the bear in reverence. Nice to see this sort of photo on TE. Regards. Klaudio.

Namaste Swapan. Your words "an appearance of chiseled, polished and fretted exquisiteness" say it all. A beautiful place in which to seek shade and relief from the heat and ponder about the transience of life and the Creator's many wonders and mysteries.At first I thought it was a photo in sepia but it really is the honeyed colour of the aged marble. Great exposure in difficult setting. Best wishes. Klaudio.

The shortsighted stupidity of some governments is just unbelievable, and unfortunately the present rulers of Australia seem to be more stupid than most, even more so because they were democratically elected. This picture is different from most at TE but an important contribution according to the ideas of the site.

This is a lovely view, although I can only watch it on my mobile phone since a severe thunder storm "killed" my internet connection yesterday :-(. You have an original composition where the fluffy soft-edged clouds dominate the view, although all the action is found near the bottom. I like that you somehow went against the rules. The effect is lovely and the blue tones are very attractive.

Ciao Lisa. I didn't know about this latest act of wanton destruction but then I have stopped listening a while ago to anything the current government has to say due to total despair.We are going in the same direction as the Easter Islanders and the Pueblo Indians who chopped the last tree and then disappeared from the pages of history. Either a lot of people have given up hope as I have or are totally disconnected with their fellow man or the earth on which they depend.In the short time that the Caucasians have been in control of this continent, they have destroyed great rivers, lakes, forests and coastal ecosystems. The Aboriginal people have been caring custodians of this land for so long, yet we ignore their words.By contras, the Bible gives man dominion over the natural world- lots of rights to kill and plunder but no responsibility to preserve and that has been the mantra of the West wherever they went. I don't know if God does cry, but I wouldn't be surprised if he does when he looks down on his colourful and magical Barrier Reef and sees how unloved it is. In a Buddhist hell Mr Hunt would be forever tortured over a coal fueled fire while his lungs filled with coal dust. Let's hope such a hell exists for the scum on this earth. Con una furtiva lacrima. Klaudio.

Très jolie prise de vue plongeant notre regard avec ravissement sur la ville aux façades colorées et aux toits à pentes fortes. La vue du fleuve augmente la beauté d'ensemble.
Photo très appréciée.
