In the 19 century, the redwood-forested hills above Santa Cruz produced timber (naturally), lime (from roasting native limestone in kilns), and gunpowder (powder mills being situated there because they tended to explode).

I couldn't stay. I post pics for fun and I like it when others like my stuff. They soured the fun for me. Besides, they were criticising a pic that ended up very popular. Leaving graciously on a high felt like the best slap in the face of the critical I was likely to get.

Look at me. Am I bovvered?

I probably had a dozen top picks this week. SO many great shots.

After scrolling and scrolling and mulling it over, here are my favorites:

First goes to rizole for Snowdonia. Everything about this photo is just so stunning. The layers of depth & texture, leading line of the hikers into the atmospheric mist/fog, the panoramic aspect ration. Just beautiful! (And your "park in waiting photos" are great too!)

Second to deepop - Patio Bowling - Such a charming shot - I love the point of view of the shot from above, the colors of the bowling pins, those cute little blue crocs!

Tie for Third to:
terse - Fishing by the cement ship - I love that the ship is still peeking up out of the water, and the fisherman on the pier add another layer of interest.

Coronation80 - Messin about at the river - The composition on this one is fantastic - the shaded path, charming bridge with what looks like a colorful town beyond, the tiny people and boats in the river - or are those origami sculptures floating in the water?

And honorable mentions to everyone else - I love that everyone embraced my theme with such enthusiasm.

It certainly has, and there are more places around here where I can use it than I thought, including Nisene Marks State Park, which has a discrete sign marking the epicenter of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. And there's a big slough further a bit further south with otters and canoeists and other marine wildlife.
