We're building a megadungeon train... thing by making a whole bunch of one-page dungeons based on a template. No idea is too silly to try.

Fall of Giants Wadbilliga National Park
Celebration: countdown 5

A giant once stole three girls swimming in a pool at the top of these falls. One of the girls called all the birds in the sky to help free them, and a multitude of birds came and threw the giant's head to the ground. The giant's head may still be seen at the foot of these falls. Look closely, and you will see the tears falling from his eye.

The Giant was not alone. Look and see the other giants all around us. When they torment, remember the birds. Turn to the sky and call them with all your breath.

This is the Tuross River at the Wadbilliga near the sunken forests of the Duea. It drops about 200m (600') and is one of the most remote falls safely accessible to bushwalkers.

Image: I have processed a slightly wider image (for printing as one of the images in a 'brutal art' exhibition). This is a wider angle version. I chose a soft 'ink and watercolor' approach to pick out each of the rocks in the scene (working with a black and white image before washing color back into the image).

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection (with 450m views) until shutdown. This is a reprocessed scene of this fall (5th most viewed).

#China’s close relationship with #Brazil could be under threat after the right-wing president of #LatinAmerica’s largest economy spoke of his desire for 'a new era of closer ties' with the #UnitedStates. China loomed large during #JairBolsonaro’s visit to Washington this week, with his #US counterpart Donald #Trump keen to find a new ally to counter Beijing’s rising global influence amid an ongoing trade war and escalating geopolitical rivalry with the Asian giant.

While Bolsonaro said his visit to Washington was a success with 'important advances achieved in the economic, security and foreign policy areas', Trump’s national security adviser, #JohnBolton, hailed Brazil as a major ally and a strategic partner on #Venezuela, #Iran and China. Since 2003, China, which is Brazil’s top trading partner, has invested US$124bn in the South American country, mostly in the oil, mining and energy sectors. China also accounted for almost 28% of Brazil’s exports in 2018, while two-way trade between them in 2017 totalled US$75bn, according to Reuters.

Should China be worried about Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s bromance with Donald Trump?

President Donald #Trump heaped praise Tuesday (Mar 19) on right-wing Brazilian President #JairBolsonaro - and received plenty back - in announcing a special relationship that he said could even see the Latin American country join NATO. Trump, stressing #Brazil’s partnership in the U.S.-led campaign to force hard-left Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power, said Bolsonaro was “doing a fantastic job” and had 'brought the country together.'

For years Bolsonaro was little more than a marginal congressman, but his Trump-like campaign in 2018, promising to combat corruption and crime, and to end politics as usual, propelled him to surprise victory. His hard-right views, including frequent expressions of support for Brazil’s past period of military rule, horrified the left and drove deep divisions in Latin America’s biggest nation.

President Donald #Trump has a low approval rating. He is engaging in bitter Twitter wars and facing metastasizing investigations. But if the election were held today, he’d likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses.

While Trump appears to be in a much stronger position than his approval rating and conventional Beltway wisdom might suggest, he also could wind up in trouble if the economy slows markedly between now and next fall. And other legal bombshells could explode the current scenario. Trump’s party managed to lose the House in 2018 despite a strong #economy. So the models could wind up wrong this time around.

But their emails: Seven members of Trump’s team have used unofficial communication tools

President #Trump’s objections to #HillaryClinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state were never terribly convincing. At times, he claimed that Clinton, his Democratic presidential challenger in 2016, had tried to shield unethical activity by using a personal account. At others, he specifically criticized her for having shared classified material through her personal account.

If Trump’s broad criticism was true, that the use of a private account to conduct official business is suspect - if not illegal - and represents an effort to mask illicit activity, then we have bad news for him: An awful lot of that same suspect activity is taking place in his administration. Trump’s son-in-law, #JaredKushner, and daughter #IvankaTrump, both advisers to the president, had used either personal email accounts or the messaging application WhatsApp to conduct official business, according to information from the House Oversight Committee. The committee also learned that former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland and former adviser Stephen K. Bannon had also, at times, used personal email accounts for official business.

There are essentially three parts to the GauGAN software: a paint bucket, pen and pencil. At the bottom of the screen are a bunch of labels like sky, water, rock, and sand. Select "water" and tap the paintbrush and the tool will turn your blue line into a cascading, photorealistic waterfall. The same goes for turning circles into clouds or lumps into rocks or a cliffside.

So This is Making America Great Again?
Check out which bases in foreign countries are being considered for school and child care cuts. Then look at the Alaskan air base with no room for a school with 240 children additional. These are political targets. In Arizona McSally reports there should not be any such cuts. But we know who she’s a big fan of.

Trump's border wall money may come at expense of schools for military kids

A woodland walk in spring

Today is the spring equinox and while I haven't been able to photograph as much over the past few weeks as I would have liked, the days are getting longer and warmer.

Time again to venture on an epic photography tour in Ireland.
