It might be slightly different now with the latest version of flickr, but the concept is still the same. I can't access the full site whilst at work to check though.

I do like that. I keep meaning to have a go at shooting star trails, but I need to find somewhere with a bit less light pollution first.

A couple of holiday snaps. First one is less "here comes the summer sun" more "there goes the summer sun". Second one is a Loggerhead Turtle, taken from a moving boat, hence it not being quite as sharp as it might have been.

First attempt at some sports photography yesterday; fell running to be precise. Good to try something a bit different, though I suspect with a little more planning as to where on the route to go (I only decided to go out half an hour before the race started) I might have got some better shots with a better location.

They are not that hard.  The main thing is to get a foreground, the actual trails themselves are not to bad.

Well done by the way. Mine is called Gibson Mill, for which I appear to have a Silver. It is a colour version of last month's photo comp winner. I'm happy enough with that, especially as I wasn't wholly convinced it met the requirements of the theme (as taught in the lessons at least).

Just need to find a model for this month's portrait module, as the wife goes nuts everytime I point the camera in her direction!

Silver again this month. Nowt if not consistent!

It is excellent, isn't it? Very vivid and intense colours.

Probably the best place to put these... A couple of shots taken by a friend of Kananaskis golf course just outside of Calgary:

 

2005.  Taken when we went for a round.  A fantastically beautiful course with perfect scenery and course layout.

Taken today after being devastated by the floods from as close as possible to the original shot.

I got Bronze, the comments were "Compositionally fits the bill perfectly, but the brief suggested the use of natural light as the main source."

 

I had a feeling I'd get marked down for using a strobe.

I got a bit more feedback as well, "nearly there, just needs a cleaner background". It was a shot of the wife whilst not watching me, and you can see part of the striped garden chair she was sat on.

brings back some great memories: loved Zakynthos

It's a nice island, however it was a bit warm for me, meaning we spent more time in the airconditioned room in the hotel than I would have liked. I imagine if we were to go back around October time when it was early 20s, it would be a fantastic place to spend longer exploring and photographing. Plenty of other places I want to visit though, so I suspect it will be a long time before we go back, if ever.

I have been to loads of Greek Islands and to a fair few places on the mainland, Zakynthos remains well down at the bottom of my list of places in Greece to visit.

Most places I want to visit are in the uk. Just wish you could guarantee the weather!

A few shots from the couple of hours I spent wondering around Heptonstall this afternoon.
