We're spending a few days over on the Isle of Man...these are a few photos close to Peel Castle...must have taken 250 photos over the course of an hour...o:)



.....


Love these pictures Gnu.

They are very Northen. Viseral. Hard. Effervescent.

In the past we would have used a red or green filter with film to emphasise weather and contrast.

What did you do to make these images so punchy?


Thanks cRunchy...I use an app called Snapseed...it helps to give the photos more atmosphere...especially when you have dramatic skies


My boat may be a tad long to get through to the Lancaster. I've got to check the exact permitted dimensions for the Douglass and Ribble Link....



Ahh well...fingers crossed, I might see you up this way some day..

Even though I can take some cracking photos with my DLSR....my partner can take equally beautiful photos with the camera in her smart phone...I'm always in admiration the way she can see a photo in almost any situation...

It's looking out over Morecambe Bay, in NW England....apparently it'll be the worlds largest off shore wind farm when it's finally completed in 2018...with over 300 turbines...

A trio of photo's from the last few weeks...

The first taken at Beamish Museum in County Durham, one of dozens that I took while we were their. Spent six hours going round the various areas and only managed to see two thirds of it....

The second, a red admiral sunning himself on a rowan tree..

Finally, we took my granddaughter on the beach the weekend before last...Scarlett spent hours exploring the rock pools and building the obligatory sandcastles... :o)
