  • St Marys Lighthouse

    Was a first time for me and I didn't have enough time on that trip. The tide was too high the day I took this and there were 3 of us taking it in turns on the top of the causeway. Am hoping for some extended tours of the north of England and Scotland in the next couple of years

    Lovely. Something I can only dream of here in Bournemouth :-(

    Lol Kurt. I thought the same when I posted it. Nearly posted some translation by way of explanation but you don't get to do that in a club comp

    I like the recession in the central landscape - the sense of perspective given by the mountains. You could try a letterbox crop and make it into a panorama, for more impact maybe

  • Love locked

    Nope. I have my padlock on my 3rd finger lol.

    They are all new and they all have Parisian symbols like the Eiffel Tower. The street traders are doing roaring business since the Paris authorities removed the originals

    Well spotted. I just love stuff like that

    I think you'll find a more appreciative audience here than at the club last night - I prefer it in colour anyway. Grin

    It looks like photinia. It's a bit out of season but mine is also showing some red. Cut it back hard now for marvelous show of red in the spring

    Beautiful. A definite Christmas card candidate even if he isn't a robin.

    Thanks for all the comments and thanks for the award Peter. My Olympus is in for repair and I am so missing it. I took this shot hand held, at 1 second, thanks to the excellent IBIS.

    Yesterday I dug out my old Canon 7d mkii, lugged a full pack of gear down the road for a spot of local photography, put it on a tripod, switched the lens image stabililsation off, put it on a 10 second timer and still got movement blur in some of my images. Grrrrh! On one occasion I was on a boardwalk and on another I was in a stream but there were others when it just shouldn't have happened. Am trying a different tripod today, and doing away with the cheap L bracket I was using - we shall see if that helps ...

    I still hanker for full frame and am holding out for the rumoured Canon mirrorless next year. If it doesn't hit all the right spots I think there will be a lot of Canon gear for sale

  • Paris in love

    Yes I saw that in the news. They are coming back to every bridge and fence - these were taken this summer - and I've seen them in this country too. Good business for the lock sellers lol

    Love the colours and shapes. Well spotted. Would also work square, if you lost the bottom part

    Thank you for the kind words and award. I genuinely wasn’t sure about this one. I liked it and knew how I wanted to edit it from the start but I thought it was probably just me being weird 🙂

    An amazing building. I found the structure more interesting than the contents lol

  • Height of Summer

    Hi Peter. I couldn't decide if it was wheat or barley but went for wheat because the ears were shorter and the heads more upright. Also, I used it elsewhere and made a joking reference to the possible passing of Theresa May on the track through the field Tongue.

    I see you are Welsh and wondered what your handle means. I know felin/melin is a mill (I've had the odd pint of Felinfoel) but not the ddol bit.

    At Vigeois? I took a shot but there was a lot of activity with kayaks and tow vehicles plus the day was overcast and very flat so it wasn’t something I processed

    Thanks again for all the comments. This one was a welcome distraction as I am sitting in a hotel room waiting for insurance to kick in after we crashed our motorhome yesterday. Just cuts and bruises but lots of shock, and stranded at the opposite end of the country :-(. Was supposed to be the start of our great retirement adventure and when I have time to process them I have some nice shots of Northumberland, but our trip is curtailed for now Sad

  • Silver birches in winter

    I started a photography project earlier in the year, just to create a focus. It's called One Mile and everything I shoot is within 1 mile of my front door. When I step outside all I see is houses and cars, bins and billboards, but within that mile I have Kinson Common, Fernyheath Common, Turbary Common and Talbot Woods. It's so easy to jump in the car and miss all this and there are so many amazing spaces around Bournemouth

  • Caerfanell Falls

    Thanks for your kind words. It is a lovely spot, a few miles out of Brecon. We were there for 3 days at the end of October, starting in the Wye Valley, and it wasn't till Brecon that we broke out of heavy mist. I met 2 local photographers (by their accent Smile ) at Tal-y-Bont reservoir. They told me about this place but said it is normally much more of a torrent. Wales had had a surprisingly dry late summer and Autumn. It was such a short visit and I'm hoping to get more time there soon.

    This photo was also my first attempt at focus stacking
