Holiday For Lucien

By LynneJoyce  
In viewing Lucien's (ljh) lovely images from Cornwall it struck me that it was about time that he went on holiday and saw some of the rest of England and Europe. So I have prepared this virtual holiday tour for him in a manner that he is likely to understand and appreciate (I hope). Something quite different from me for a change, these images are presented in chronological order as taken throughout this year.

V1 - near my home in West Yorkshire;
V's 2 & 3 - Scarborough, North Yorkshire;
V's 4 7 5 - Ledbury, Herefordshire;
V's 6 & 7 - Staveley, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire;
V's 8 & 9 - Derby;
V 10 - Calais, France;
V 11 - Gandia, Spain;
V 12 Moraira, Spain.

Enjoy Lucien, and I hope that some other EPZ-ers enjoy them too.

WOWWW...the processing you've used is ammmaaazing, Lynne. Especially in 3, 6, 9, and 12.

Lucien's gonna love these. What a fabulous idea to begin with and so beautifully executed too. A lot of time and effort has gone into this.

I love those birds catching the light against that gorgeous grey sky in V2...but for me, the genius of a shot is V9.

All are wonderful and fascinating to look at, though.

I love V1. Exfoliated trees are a symbol of rejuvenation with fresh, tender foliage. - Raja

That is some set for our friend from Kernow Lucien. I doubt you'd get him to venture North of the Tamar Bridge, he'd need to get a passport!Wink

You are a well travelled girl Lynne.On the topic of travel,my daughter and her boyfriend were supposed to fly out at 6 o'clock yesterday evening for their holiday in Teneriffe,but they just got away at 5.30 tonight !! Only 23 and half hours late !! Rather appropriate I think as had it been 24 hours,they would have got a full refund with the money.
Good set and good work.
And they do have some nice chunky big anchors in Spain !!

Love the effects, they really set the photos off in a unique way. I'm sure you can tell from all the comments that they are very popular for a good reason.
