  1. Some cracking shots in there. Not somewhere I've ever had a desire to go to, but must have been a great experience and a great way to learn some new skills.
  2. A few from my recent trip to the Cotswolds. A couple of ones that I didn't post into the Feb photo comp and a couple from our visit to the Cotswold Falconry Centre.

  3. Had a trip out to Chester Zoo today. Here's a couple of the animals, plenty more on my Flickr account if anyone would care to have a look and offer feedback.

  4. Took a 5 min detour up onto Ovenden Moor on the way to work this morning, seeing how it was looking like such a nice day. CSC_2262 by 77gazza, on Flickr CSC_2263 by 77gazza, on Flickr
  5. A couple from this morning. CSC_2163 by 77gazza, on Flickr CSC_2168 by 77gazza, on Flickr
  6. I've been working on trying to get some foreground interest into my landscapes, though it's not always possible of course. The last one is on Kebs Road, heading out of Blackshaw Head towards Burnley. Yes, I'll be at the game. With a season ticket it would be rude not to be.
  7. It was a cracking day here today, at least until it clouded over later this afternoon. First decent length walk I've been out and done with the wife since we did the Dales Way the week everywhere flooded last September.

  8. I'm tempted to make a sarcastic comment about the location but I'll resist. Nice capture.
  9. There are some really good ones on there. I do like your knack for capturing the moment when photographing people, especially when in black and white.
  10. Well I got my interesting journey home. Set off from work in what I can only describe as rain, but lumps of ice instead of drops, which meant the roads were pretty slippery. By the time I'd got round a few of the country roads and into Oakworth, it was raining heavily, but still at 0c, so ice became a problem in the heavy traffic. Made it through that, only to get stopped on the way out of Oxenhope by people coming the other way to advise me "some cars were stuck ahead". Decided to not worry too much about that (I was following a tractor if I'd got stuck anyway) so set off up the hill. At the top was a bit chaotic, as it was sort of single track through the snow, which was up to 3+ feet deep in places, but managed to wind my way through people trying to squeeze past each other and made it home without incident.
  11. It's been snowing here since about 10am, yet there is none on the road or paths and only a dusting settled on the grass. I suspect it will be worse higher up though, hence the buses stopped between Oxenhope & Hebden Bridge.
  12. Buses now suspended over that route. Means there must be a fair bit of snow on the road, as they normally run for longer than you'd imagine.
  13. I'll be heading over Cock Hill at about 4.30, so should be interesting. There's usually a que by the Waggon & Horses when it gets snowy. Will see what it's like before I decide whether to go through the centre of Keighley or round the back routes of Sutton & Goose Eye, Oakworth and Haworth.
  14. As it is in the Aire Valley. Might make the journey between the two a bit more interesting this evening.
  15. Got home this evening, to see that loads of icicles had formed on my rickety old garage. Not the greatest shot as it was getting pretty dark just before , so I had to grab my camera as quick as I could and shoot without setting up the tripod. Not the greatest photo, but as it stands, completely unedited, I quite like how the light is reflecting off the water droplets within each piece of ice. DSC_1981 by 77gazza, on Flickr
  16. Got home just in time tonight to stick the camera on the tripod right outside the front door and catch quite a nice sunset. Also managed to catch the fingerprints I didn't realise were on my filter, but the less said about that the better. I do like where I live on evenings like this. CSC_1976 by 77gazza, on Flickr
  17. Nice shots. And thanks for the inspiration, I'd not thought of heading there as somewhere to work on my landscapes, and it's not too far from here.
  18. Another good un. Are we going to be getting your holiday snaps on a one per day basis for the next 6 months now?
  19. Nice to see a bit of sun today, it's meant there has been some nice colours in the sky throughout the day. CSC_1919 by 77gazza, on Flickr CSC_1923 by 77gazza, on Flickr
  20. Nice shot. Always helps make a good photo when you have a good vantage point. Wish I'd managed to get some better ones of Cape Town when I was at the top of Table Mountain a couple of years ago.
