@@Geoff Well in that case I'll put another up for show, the cold of a frozen Icelandic glacial lake complete with Iceberg.

 

Camera Canon 50D and a Canon 24-70mm lens but can't remember the settings used.

Like @@Big Andy I hadn't realised the scope of this thread was so wide.....so here are a couple of pictures from Batu Caves just outside Kuala Lumpur.

Three more before I disappear to Singapore for the weekend to watch the F1 race.......astonishing sleeping place and position of a Macaque.

@@Big Andy. Thanks for reminding me how beautiful the UK is.

I am fortunate to live on the south coast now, a big change from London, and my back garden is the beautiful South downs National park.

Wednesday 28th Sept. Took a walk in the Autumn sunshine along the cliffs in

the South downs National park, Sussex, UK. One of my favourite places.

Seaford head gives the best views of the famous "Seven sisters".

This is where the landing scene from "Robin Hood Prince of thieves" was shot.

@@Whyone? Well the Bearded Pig is a four-legged version of a Maribou Stork I think, one of the ugliest creatures I've seen, but that long snout is fascinating. @@PHALANX, how lovely, only thing missing is Ross Poldark astride his horse.

Given the nature (no pun intended!) of this website, this image probably(!) pushes @@Game Warden's specification for this thread to breaking point!

 

Howevere, for me this certainly fits as one of my "...most memorable images: favourite photographs, taken anywhere in Africa, India or elsewhere on your travels: wildlife, landscapes, people, architecture..."

 

Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes W06 F1 car giving up the ghost at last weekends Malaysian GP at the Sepang circuit.

Safer territory here than flaming F1 cars - Stork-billed kingfisher, Kinabatangan river (Sabah, Borneo).

Very striking looking bird Ian, it stands out beautifully against the dark background.

Thanks Andy. I agree, lovely looking birds.

 

Out on the Kinabatangan river at night a number of birds appear to go into a trance-like state (possibly sleeping?) after dark, and can be approached v. closely indeed without them flinching - I could easily have reached out and touched this (tiny!) Blue-eared kingfisher:

@@Whyone? I did put up photos of the bearded pig in my TR on Tanjung Pinang National park/Camp Leakey (http://safaritalk.net/topic/14740-in-the-footsteps-of-dr-birute-galdikas-an-orangutan-escapade/page-4)

 

but they are a rare sighting in ST so there's no such thing as too many pics of them! yours is a super pic of its beard. :)

 

i didn't know you were in town for F1 (superb pix of Hamilton btw, but such a sore loser) otherwise we could have met up! I was at the races but it was the concerts that were the bigger attraction (Queen no less) for me.

Hi @@Kitsafari - apologies, I missed your TR, but rest assured I am will be catching up on this later today, thanks for the link.

 

Yes, I attended the F1 races in Singapore (and saw Queen and Imagine Dragons!) and Malaysia, shame we missed the opportunity to share a drink (jolly expensive though it is in Singapore!) and an ST chat. I agree with what you say about Hamilton. Brilliant driver though he is, I cannot bring myself to support him due to his lack of sportsmanship.
