Summer flowers in New York

Fort Tryon Park is near the north end of Manhattan, and in spring and early summer it is filled with colours. This is a great masterwort (Astrantia major) in all its glory.

Kuirau Park, Rotorua

Rotorua is in a very geologically-active location; the water in this pond is constantly bubbling, and there are hot steam vents all over the park – which is right next to the city centre.

Tjörnin is a small lake in downtown Reykjavík – the name literally means “the pond”. It completely freezes over in winter, but it’s a popular bird feeding place for tourists in summer (or autumn, as pictured here).

Wild flowers

It was a gray, misty winter day at the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, in the Santa Cruz Mountains, south of San Francisco. Still, in mid winter, some wild flowers were still on display by the side of the hiking tracks.

Ferris Wheel

The big ferris wheel in Melbourne (the Melbourne Star) against the afternoon sun. This was taken soon after it opened for the first time, when it was still called the Southern Star – it stayed open for only a bit over a month, then it had to be taken down due to structural damage, and it wouldn’t open again until five years later.
