    ’Shingle Beach’ at Goring by Sea.

    This part of the south coast has a remarkable quality. It is both depressing and serene at the same time. I’m not quite sure how it manages this, I think it is a little like Blackpool! You have the excitement of childhood associated with the sea, coupled with the dreariness of experiencing it as an adult in a kind of ‘this is England’ kind of way.

    One of my all-time favourite books, When The Lights Go Out, by Tanith Lee, plays on that, set in a slightly run-down SE-coast town at the end of the season, when the lights go out.
    Great photos, btw, really catching that atmosphere.

    bigjim that forest scene is awe-inspiring – Caspar David Friedrich is painting from his grave.

    The light and mist was amazing, some really striking views, I wish I’d taken the proper camera, the go pro is so hit and miss.

    my shadow had a rainbow too

    Yes i like those sort of shots geetee.
    Find a patch of light and stick your subject in it.

    I like the coastal shots as well, always plenty to see at the coast and great light.

    A bit of black and white

    Stunning images geetee, dramatic and despondent captured in equal measure.
    Striking clarity and colours too.

    Andy nice shot, great use of tone and light as ever. Where do you get your film developed?

    Jad, there isn’t a way to message via Flickr other than to approve of someone’s work by making them a favourite. Problem with that is it can become embarrasing to fave too many!

    I really like your work; some great landscapes.

    pic of carbon bath tub, proud mainly because it was really hard to light and bring out the carbon weave without horrible reflections on the gloss clear coat plus the inside was essentially a curved mirror so a bit of a challenge lighting wise.

    Aye would imagine that would be hard to light Mr Smith.

    geetee, all b&w gets developed in my bathroom, colour goes to peak imaging in Sheffield.

    Unusual garden visitor by Notoriously Bad Typist, on Flickr

    Looks like a juvenile Grey Heron who keeps coming and sitting on the neighbour’s roof. Over the weekend he sat in the tree long enough for me to take a phone pic, then a small camera pic, then dig out the big (300mm f2.8) lens. Taken handheld @ 300mm

    Here;s the view fro a P&S camera – as you see he’s quite some way away

    You see this is exactly why every time I ponder whether I shoudl try to take my hobby further, I realise that the pictures I take barely scratch the surface of the skill set you need to be a decent photographer.

    I wouldn’t know where to start with studio photography. Actually I wouldn’t know where to start with anything that didn’t rely 100% on the available light.

    The skill needed to make this picture is far ahead of anything I can comprehend.

    it’s just years of practice, mastering your tools and mini-problem solving. (plus an aesthetic visual awareness)
    you could say that about most skills/professions/crafts

    i wouldn’t know how to design and model a turbo plenum chamber and how to get it mass produced to a price point, to somebody that’s a walk in the park.

    Love that last one. Reminds me of George SHaw’s humbrol enamel paintings.

    Not sure about posting my own amongst these obviously talented shots, but I liked this one from a couple of days ago in Bordeaux.

    Like George Shaw a lot, never heard of him before. Beauty in the banal. Thanks for the heads up.

    @rhbrhb I love that and would be happy to hang it on my wall, the simplicity of it really appeals. Top Job!

    This one I called a ‘ghostie’ :o)

    I popped into a bar on the beach front at Brighton to take my eldest to the toilet. I saw this doorway and just couldn’t resist. It was as if it was made for candid portraits. He normally doesn’t like having his picture taken but seemed happy to oblige in this instance.
