City lights (best larger)  Looking towards Torchal mountain from Milad Tower at night, Tehran, Iran.  Note the silhouette of the mountains in the background.    It was very windy at the top of the tower and even with a good tripod it was very difficult to keep the camera 100% steady in such a tall building since the building itself moved with the wind.  I braced the tripod against the building structure in the lee of the wind and shot between gusts, but it still required several shots to get it tack sharp.

26.04.15 - Saturday Afternoon  This was going to be my Daily yesterday but I put it on hold for my tribute to thosel ost in the Nepal earthquake. These shots were taken on a guided photo walk I did on Saturday afternoon, some popular places and some less well known ones around old Lincoln. The weather started off bright and sunny, but there were storms approaching and we got rained on just before the end
The sun is shining, but it is still too cold for it to be pleasant to be outside.  So I decided to fill my computer screen with flowers. You can see the uncropped images, and the full resolution version of the central frame in this gallery:  http://arctangent.smugmug.com/ConservatoryPlants/Spring-Blooms-Conservatory/16166729_R6qjwZ  DP081-2015  Posted late Sunday, March 22; created ditto from photos taken March 16. The pictures that form the border are all crops of photos taken at the same time as the central image.  All were at the spring blooms display at Hidden Lake Gardens.  Title:  Spring is Everywhere - Except Here!  Thanks for your continued support of my DailyPhotos posts, and various other images on my smugmug site.  It brightens my day.
The growth habit of agaves is fascinating.  New leaves uncurl themselves gradually from a central spike.  Each leaf, when mature, is very thick at the base, and thins and flattens out toward the tip.  Each leaf edge is lined with characteristic thorns which generally are a different color from the leaf.  Within that pattern there are many variations in color, size, overall leaf shape, and so on.  This is a collection of shots of the bases of three different large agaves.  One agave is also shown in a more distant view.  That one is the MacDougal's Giant Century Plant (Furcraea macdougalii)  DP082-2015  Posted Monday, March 23; processed ditto from photos taken Mar. 16 Full resolution, uncropped, versions of these shots are here:  http://arctangent.smugmug.com/ConservatoryPlants/Conservatory-Arid/AridHouse-UnsortedUnidentified/37034677_S3bh4D  Title:  Agaves - The same, but different.

Hi All.  It's been a couple of days since I have been able to comment and view your wonderful pictures.  I've really missed it too.  Anyway, here's a quick snap today - I'm not extremely happy with it, but perhaps later this afternoon I'll get an opportunity to take some more pictures.  Sometimes our everyday lives take precedence over fun stuff.    Thanks for everyone for your warm and kind comments on the Punta Cana palm tree and other photos.  You all are wonderful.  I appreciate the comments, compliments and critiques.  Have a great Father's Day evening.

Looking towards Torchal mountain from Milad Tower at night, Tehran, Iran. Note the silhouette of the mountains in the background.

It was very windy at the top of the tower and even with a good tripod it was very difficult to keep the camera 100% steady in such a tall building since the building itself moved with the wind. I braced the tripod against the building structure in the lee of the wind and shot between gusts, but it still required several shots to get it tack sharp.
