Architecture St Peters Dome

I would have liked to have this more centered, but the main alter is in the way and I was pretty sure they did not want me to climb on it.
Even so, I was happy with the results. The Latin inscription starting "Tu Es Petrus" is the translated "You are Peter, and on this rock..."
An impressive building all around - and huge - bigger than you would expect.

The rebuilt Union Pacific Big Boy came within 2 miles of us on the tour of the mid-west, so I waited 45 minutes for 30 seconds of viewing.
The images do not do justice to how massive the locomotive is, but it was a thrill to see and hear it up close.
The images are in reverse order because I liked the close-up best.

Almost a really good photo. Good lighting, exposure, focus, wing position, even a few drops of water from the feet and a hint of wing reflection in the water... but I missed about one inch of the front of the beak. Oh well - keep trying - maybe next time. I added a static shot from just before he took off.

I'm still learning how to get the most from my 60-250 lens and converter, but these shots of birds on our backyard feeders turned out to my satisfaction.

Taken in the Forbidden City in Beijing. I was intrigued by the contrast of the ethnic costume and the modern cell phone.

I'm playing with converting some of my images to black and white. These two in my opinion look better in B+W than the original color version. A fun exdercise.

A few images from our recent trip to Costa Rica. The sunset is from Manuel Antonio Park, then there is a Green Heron, a Duck-billed Heron, a land crab, and a monkey. Lots of birds and other wildlife to see, and lots of colorful flowers - a good trip to escape the snow of Wisconsin.

A few more from my recent trip to China. These were taken in a tourist area re-creating the old way of life. There was just a bit of sun coming through the fog which gave a nice lighting effect.

I recently was on a 3 week tour of China - I'll share some images as I get them processed.
These 3 are from the Forbidden City in Beijing. The first is the main Tiananmen gate, the second is the Gate of Supreme Harmony inside the grounds, and the third shows some detail on the buildings

Had fun watching this guy in our backyard. He would come out of hiding to process his catch, and then take it back to his lair for later consumption.
The first image was taken with my 100mm 2.8 macro with 1.4 tc, and shows the web pretty well. The second was taken with my 60 - 250, also with a 1.4 tc, and shows him working on a meal.
It was a good use of time to try out both lens combinations - each gave some good images.

Saw this guy on our patio door - took a first shot hand held, and then he left as I got the tripod ready. At least I got one image.

Thanks for the nice comments. I think the B-29 I got was Doc - both were to fly together but I was in the museum for the earlier part of the air show so did not see that or the B-25 Doolittle Raid re-enactment. Have not mastered being in 2 places at once. For those who like aircraft, the EAA should be on your bucket list - it was amazing.
