Mount of the Holy Cross is a mountain summit in the northern Sawatch Range of the Rocky Mountains of North America. The 14,011-foot (4,271 m) fourteener is located in the Holy Cross Wilderness of White River National Forest, near the town of Red Cliff in Eagle County, Colorado, United States. The summit of Mount of the Holy Cross is the highest point in Eagle County and the northern Sawatch Range. It took us two days to reach the summit, and were rewarded with spectacular views. This is the Bowl of Tears, a glacial lake directly under the east face of the peak. Photo by Stevyn Llewellyn

I took this photo while travelling in Japan in Spring of 2010. I was fortunate enough to get a glimpse of a rare sight, a Maiko ( apprentice Geisha ) in her traditional kimono walking down Hanami Koji Dori street in the famous Geisha district in Kyoto. In the background are large sake casks, which frame her ornate wareshinobou hairstyle, elaborate kanzashi, brightly colored kimono, and beautiful green obi. She is also carrying a small purse. She had just finished a performance at the historic Pontocho Kaburenjo Theatre, where they have seasonal Geisha plays. This would make a unique gift for anyone interested in Japanese culture, Maiko, Geisha, or kimonos.
