    I always avoid anything man made that isn't a lighthouse, ruined castle/abbey or a drystone wall yet this more modern structure works for me. I suspect it is that fabulous red/black almost industrial coloured sky that does it. The water is perfectly exposed too and the groyne makes a great lead in.

  • Cauldron Falls Autumn

    Thanks all
    Jeanie,
    Colours are nearing perfect and if there is no undue rain between now and then all sorts of viewpoints will be accessible too Smile

  • Cauldron Falls

    It was nearly very expensive Lesley. I heard a scratching noise as I stood up and looked down at the "naked" end of my lens minus 400 worth of filter kit. After putting everything else in the car I took the plunge, literally, and eventually came up with the holder and filters, wet but intact. Almost an expensive lesson in which I learned that, unsurprisingly, the water in the Dales is not warm in October. Dave

    Another few weeks and it will be full autumn. These colours are smashing mind you.

    If you are young and fit (like Craig) you can shin down the wall from the car park. If you are old and fat (like me) you can paddle down under the bridge. I hasten to add I handed all the gear down to Craig so it was only my neck that was at risk.

  • Rainbow Over Burbage

    It's a cracking shot even without the bonus rainbow Andy. I particularly like the little splashes of purple from the heather and the mix of light and shade.

  • Saltwick Bay reworked

    Thanks all for your kind comments. Gary not sure about recognition I seem to get a fair amount of votes and kind comments. Also many of the landscape photographers on here are way out of my league, not least young Andy whose comments appear directly above mine. I just hope the p/f reflects some improvement over the years. I mostly post to keep a reasonably chronological record of my stuff. I'm still about 28 shots of sufficient quality short of the thirty target I've set myself before I can justify a website.

  • Dunstanburgh Castle

    I very much like the foreground rocks. So much in fact I would have been half tempted to crop out the castle altogether. You also did well to keep yourself and the tripod balanced. Nowt like planting yourself big stopper first in the drink or on the rocks as I almost did at Saltwick Bay.

    Love the soft focus background

  • Branksome Dean Chine Groyne

    I love the composition and you have slowed the water down nicely too. I notice you are using cokin filters and I wonder if they have caused a purple cast to the shot. On my monitor the colours look slightly out. That aside its a nice, simple, well judged shot and I like the positioning of the gronye too.

    Thanks Neil, Lee and Caroline and thanks Mickey for the mod. You have brought some detail to the shadow which was beyond my primitive processing skills.

  • Waterfall II

    Thanks Chris and Rob. Its in a village called West Burton in North Yorkshire.

  • Waterfall near West Burton

    Thank you all for your kind comments. Lee I can't wait to have another crack in a week or three as I think the autumn colours will look stunning.
    Craig - At last somewhere to shoot on overcast days and never the same shot twice with the water levels. I've decided on a two stop ND purchase as this was nigh on 3 minutes as I could not stop down enough with just a polariser and had to go without the CPL and use the 10 stop.

  • Sunset at New Brighton

    Thanks all. I love the mod I had too much sand in the original which I kept only to keep the clouds on the right. The mod is better as are the colours. My effort with the colours looked oversaturated when I tried whereas paintman's doesn't.

    Poetic licence Tongue To be honest if it ain't a Japanese sports bike I wouldn't have a clue.

  • New Brighton Lighthouse

    Having seen the unfiltered and unprocessed originals I am most impressed with this. Think of the work you could have saved with a few stops of grad tho Tongue Smile

    Hope you brought that back to Yorkshire with you after the debacle of our last waterfall search.

    Ah, so there is a decent photographer in the family after all Tongue

    Best way to remove the date from the bottom left is to use your dad's camera next time Smile

    I see you did acquire the big stopper Smile it certainly has worked here.

    The long exposure has worked a treat on that sky.

    Cracking selection. Looking at all the lenses used it's no wonder my camera bag is so light Tongue

  • Under a Blood Red Sky ...

    This is a beauty. I have clicked up therefore. I must confess under the old system I would just have voted without comment as everything has been said already and I have nothing to offer by way of constructive criticism due to the quality of the image. Mind you under this new system if I hadn't liked it I simply wouldn't have voted. I am not sure why we need a system of negative voting.

    Nice candid shot. We were in that scrum too. I got a couple of shots on the 80-200 later in the day but most of the keepers were before 9 o'clock when it was fairly quiet.
