Good heavens it looks dry!  It could almost be an African vista.

It always tends to look like that this time of year as the new Bracken hasn't come through and you still have all the dead stuff everywhere, so it looks dry against the green of the trees, anyway it's had a good downpour the last couple of days so those green shoots will soon be springing up!  O0

Blencathra from Bowscale Fell - 31st May 2011

One of the things I like about this forum is the trip reports and more importantly the photos that come with them.
Every now and then some one will post a photo and I think wow, I have to go there and see for myself. Sometimes because of my circumstances it’s not always possible to get there, which brings me to the purpose of this post.
I would like to go to Bowscale-fell and see where Brandywell (John?) took this Photo.
I’ve looked at the maps but there is only so much stuff that a map shows.
So my question to anyone who has been up that way , what is the terrain like , it looks grassy in the Photo,  where is the best starting place (car parking ect), and which is the easiest route up there , when I say easiest route I mean is there a way up there without having to go over lose  scree / rocks ?.
I have no ambitions to get to the top of Blencathra (at the moment) but would dearly love to get onto (and off) Bowscale-fell.
And whilst I am asking, route up or down (doesn’t matter if it’s the same way up & down) but under 8 miles or so. (I’m feeling a bit wimpy at the moment)
Many thanks for any info ………Mick

I think that is the Early Purple Orchid.

I saw those along the North Downs Way on Monday and wondered what they were, so thanks Kev.
 
The first picture was really good too, those stone gateposts really draw you into the view.

Stunnning. Personally would opt for the second one as it shows the detail more easily. Butterfly is more prominent also.

A view of Lose Hill, which is part of the Great Ridge that separates the Edale Valley from the Hope Valley in the Derbyshire Peak District. Lose Hill gets its name from the Battle of Win Hill and Lose Hill in 626. Prince Cwichelm and his father, King Cynegils of Wessex, possibly with the aid of King Penda of Mercia, gathered their forces on neighbouring Lose Hill and marched on the Northumbrians based on Win Hill. Despite their superior numbers, Wessex was defeated by the Northumbrians building a wall and rolling boulders down upon them.

Nice one Botty O0
 
I think the foreground really adds something.


Cheers Crib Goch. As soon as a saw those white flowers/weeds/whatever I knew they would make such a difference to the photo :)

Best pic of the day is a really good idea and some very impressive shots been submitted.

Here's mine - a rain storm over Brown Knoll and Swine's Back near Edale in the Peak District with, I think, Mount Famine in the backgound taken from near Pym Chair. Fortunately the rain never reached me! I've added the slightest of touches of grey graduation to the clouds but it's pretty much as it was.

Looking across to Ingleborough from Whernside, Christmas Eve 2006 - my first 'cloud inversion' - unforgettable.


One of my other favourite pics is from the same day, at the end of the walk off Whernside

I don't quite know why, and technically it's all wrong with it's washed out background (though it might not work so well without?), but I love this shot. It was almost at the full reach of my zoom lens, inside a dark barn, and it just struck me as alive somehow! Maybe even a bit lonely, given that all the other machinery was on show at a farm open day!

Pretty special  ^-^ . Just imagine standing in front of that?
Or halfway up and then on the top  O0 O0 Just gonna check how high it is on wikipedia...

The Matterhorn (German), Monte Cervino (Italian) or Mont Cervin (French), is a mountain in the Pennine Alps (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennine_Alps) on the border between Switzerland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switzerland) and Italy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italy). Its summit is 4,478 metres (14,690 ft) high, making it one of the highest peaks in the Alps (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alps).[2] The four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers, face the four compass points


crikey that s like alomst 5 helvellyns high!

The north face was not climbed until 1931, and is amongst the six great north faces of the Alps (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_north_faces_of_the_Alps). The Matterhorn is one of the deadliest peaks in the Alps: from 1865 – when it was first climbed – to 1995, 500 alpinists died on it.[4]

where s mayaculpa when you need him to lead an expedition?


May have to give this one a miss, guys and gals...

Been up on the limestone fells above Hutton Roof today - Home Park Fell and Farleton Knott and thereabouts. Got to love Limestone country and it was a lovely walk - TR in progress! Here's a top-to-bottom Pano of the view at one stage looking SE toward Ingleborough which at this resolution looks tiny! Not the greatest pano stitch, but I like the limestone and the Big Sky  :)
 
(http://i51.tinypic.com/353e1xl.jpg)
 
These fells are in N Lancashire, just to the right of the M6 as you reach Jnct 36, the Kendal and S Lakes turn-off. I've often wondered what's up there - now I know - lots of Limestone delights!

OK not quite a photo of the day, rather a vid from the top along from slioch - saving the photos for my really amazing report tomorrow! one of the more interesting facts of which is that for once while I was enjoying the weather as shown in vid on the west coast, the east coast was experiancing thunder storms, lightening and rain - I'm feel sooooo sorry for them. Also have the audio on, the total silence and just a wif of a breeze was also an added bonus - I went today cause tomorrow is forcasted gale winds, cloud down to 500m and lashings of rain!

I didnt realise Sky had such big mountains


Catbells, thanks for your comments. Skye has probably the most challenging mountains in the UK. I hope to do the Cuillin traverse before I drop off this mortal coil.
The pic was taken on my walk to Oransay earlier this afternoon when the sun shone briefly.
Enjoy....

I saw this pic today, it was posted on a public Brecon Beacons page on Facebook so hope its ok to put it on here  :-\ . My favourite approach to my favourite steep place (Cribyn) is in the foreground, with Pen Y Fan and Corn Du behind.  The pic was focused on Corn Du so no apologies for Pen Y Fan not having pride of place here. It's taken from a quite  unusual angle and I loved it. I'm sure if Big Tasty sees this, it will bring back nightmares for her, the poor thing. She walked this with me back in July ...

Another wonderful panoramic of the moray countryside, this time above cromdale near to the old pipers stone laid in remembrance to a piper who shone the light and gave his comrades courage during a battle that happened nearby - apparently he's still around some days when the wind howls appearing beside unsuspecting walkers luring them to where he died amidst his mates.

Cheers Rich - many of the photos I take are just a record of the walk, but as we don't do particularly long walks I often spend a little more time 'on location' to look for the odd good shot. I do tend to keep some of these off Picasa though as the Picasa albums are normally there for a record of a trip, and not really for 'arty' purposes.

I took this one a week and a half ago, and whilst the subject doesn't hold a great deal of interest, the polarizing lens I had on the camera really brought out the colours and the contrast between the different colours and textures. The photos is as it was taken apart from having sharpened it slightly as it was a little 'soft'

Polarisers are great for that. They also help reduce glare off water and other shiny surfaces...really must get round to replacing my broken one...

Hmmm does this have to be days out in the hills?


If not I went to Brighton to enjoy the Oct Sunshine (approx 27 degrees). Anyhow we had our lunch sitting outside a Mexican restaurant listening to some lovely atmospheric beats and watching people spin on there heads making moves for what I later learnt was Brazilian Capoeira. Really felt like we were on our holidays

Whilst not the most artistic, and not a great deal of 'interest' in the shot I like this one I took down Edale on Saturday - taken from Rushup Edge, as it's simple but shows Edale in it's beautiful glory. It was taken early afternoon so the light is not at it's best, but still nice in my opinion.

A disappointing sun rise followed by the dramatic clearing of the fomerly clouded over sky led to this shot pointing to the south of Mam Tor in the Peak District to a small hill that I believe is called Middle Hill.
I placed most of the frame over the sky to try and portray just how big the sky was that morning. I should maybe of used my ultra wide lens but the whole thing was changing so rapidly this was a bit snatched at.
I hope you like

Thanks for that advice, fleegle, if anyonelse wants to try it it would be well to go prepared with some water proofing for the camera, I took two shots whilst behind the waterfall and landed up using most of the tissues we carry mopping up.

One of the great things about photography is, you can experiment. Particularly with digital photography, because you can shoot away and view on the computer at no real cost, other than time....     :D
 
I love experimenting. Yes, I have a lot of flops (there would be something wrong if I didn't), but by making a note of what you've done, you can perfect the shot...    O0

This was my best pic yesterday, alongside the Severnway, near Shrewsbury, there used to be the visible remains of this fish weir. I grew up near here and we always called it the Salmon Trap. Yesterday I spent the afternoon in the county archives, taking photo's for another project, of old maps on the micro-fiche. Focus not too good but the images are a useful record.
 
Then I stumbled across this map of the old fish weir almost as it might have been, when it was being used to trap fish on the river Severn around 1880.
 
(http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u297/barewirewalker/mapfishweir.jpg)
 
In the tenancy agreement of the farm that my great grandfather signed there was an agreement that he would not feed Salmon to his men more than 3 times a week and I think this structure had something to do with that rather strange codicil in a farm tenancy agreement.
 
Can anyone suggest a way that I can reverse the black & white, I have Photoshop elements but have failed to figure out a way to do it.
 
This morning the light on the river was beautiful, not by any means my best photo as it was taken at the limits of the telephoto capacity of my camera but it shows an image of what, I think, access is all about.
 
The canoueist had just launched on my side of the river, but his dog had run over the footbridge above to the other side.

Had a great day on the fannaichs and a long one, made it out with 1/2 hour to spare before lights out.
 
First photo is of a waterfall I found on the way out, plus click here (http://www.mtn-m.co.uk/web components/fiannachs/panoramic from fannaichs) to see a panoramic of the torridons and an teallach under those storm clouds that were forcasted and did stay away from me for most of the day, as forcasted.

I believe that's the lookout by St Peter's Chappel.  This has been one my most favourite Essex walks for many years now.  I like to go there to get away from it all and clear my mind when life is getting just a little too mad.

Tell me about it Howie. I missed the best though at Llyn Dinas as we drove straight passed gobbed smacked and nearly crashed looking at the reflections and colours. I did get a couple from the top end but what a fantastic atmospheric place. Not a ripple on the waters and not a person in sight all the way from beddgelert to the pen y pass road. If only you could bottle these things up O0

Loads of snow, at some points where it had drifted it was waste deep! Had to put my camera away after Fan Hir as it snowed the rest of the day and was very windy :( No views to the lake sadly, but was nice to sit down by the shore out of the wind for a few minutes.

From the same walk. Would not, for a moment call this a 'best pic'. No time to setup (train was moving as i walked up the footpath), sun behind subject, camera phone. But still posting it anyway. Gives me an excuse to go back and try again! Good spot to hang around as the trains all stop there before changing direction on the 1/2 mile track. The signal box is right there too.

Underneath of Chappel viaduct (railway bridge) while out hiking.

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7171/6608017521_4f7d87d10f_b.jpg)
From Wiki:
Quote
The Chappel viaduct is 1,066 feet (325 m) long, has 32 arches of 30 feet (9 m) span and its maximum height is 75 feet (23 m). It currently takes the Marks Tey to Sudbury branch line, which connects regularly with trains to and from London's Liverpool Street Station.
The large number of construction workers needed for the project were housed, many with their families, in temporary huts built on Wakes Colne Green. Although some 5 or 6 million bricks are reckoned to have been used, the piers were hollow to save money and reduce weight. A further remarkable feature of the viaduct is that it is built on a gradient - the Sudbury end is 9.5 feet (2.9 m) higher than the Marks Tey end. According to William White’s History, Gazetteer and Directory of the County of Essex, 1848, the first stone was laid in September 1847. The viaduct took two years to build, and [COLOR="Blue"]is thought to be the second largest brick-built structure in England[/COLOR].
The first passenger train to Sudbury, carrying an official party from Colchester, ran on 2 July 1849.

Perfect remedy for a sore head - or perhaps not, but I decided to go on a short local walk anyway. These two are of a waterfall above aberlour, just above the brewery whose potent sweet hops smell seemed remarkibly soothing to the odd brain.

unfortunatly the background is alittle shaky on this one - really need to get a tripod, using the small bean bag is no good in many instances.

One from last night which I've finally finished through editing. slight wobbles with the streetlights given the wind gusts up on the hill where I was photographing, but netherless it's a shame we won't be seeing fireworks here (outside of anything organised for the Queens Jubilee/Olympics) for 11 months.

Only a small display, so it's not quite on par with the 5 Nov images I got in 2011. Still makes for some good practise.

This Buzzard was 130 meters away in a tree so I was pleased with the results from my bridge camera. I do have an old SLR but my 300mm Zoom lens would never be able to get this close.

Some great pictures have been posted, just to bring down the bar a few pegs;
 
I thought I would take a short cut round this village, climbed a gate walked across a field and found a ditch I could not cross. Thought I take a photo to make it look like I had gone there for a purpose, before retracing my steps with my tail between my legs, looked up and bang;

one of 155 piccies I took today on a short walk along the coast near findochity in moray. Wild sea's and western winds enabled the high tide to blow up quite a few exciting gusts of spray between the rugged rocks. managed to get soaked as well while walking on the harbour by a freak wave - soaked me and the camera, so have to buy more baby wipes.

mt.Snowdon as seen from Whaley Moor (Feb 19th). Taken 15 minutes before sunset and in excellent visibility, all that was required was a map&compass to spot it above the horizon. My glasses, and a bit of GIMP tweaking to bring out the contrast.

mt.Snowdon is give or take 97miles from Whaley Moor, excellent vista's all across the Cheshire Plain and northern Pennines today.

I took these in a local beauty spot known as Tigers Clough. Its proper name is Shaw's Clough, and the top part of it was once a public park (Shaw's Park). About 100yr ago though the clough contained a bleach works and an unliceced pub nearby. The owner of the pub obviously wasn't too concerned about officers of the law paying him an official visit, because he even went to the trouble of having a sign erected outside that showed a picture of two tiger cubs. And that's how the clough got its local name.

Tracey, I think I do   ;)  and yes, I love the seaside, just as much as I love the open countryside. One day, I will do one or more of these coastal paths. I've done little bits over the years, but that is usually when I've been on holiday with the family and TBH, its been too warm to do a full trek.
 
I suppose one of my favourite afternoon strolls in North Wales, Conwy Mountain, Penmaenbach and Alltwen, is almost a coastal path. Its virtually on the coast (only the A55 Holyhead Road between that and the sea) and provides lovely views, not just down theConwy valley, but also across the Irish Sea.
 
But one day, I will.    O0

Thanks Fleegle, it took a bit of photo shop to make the original closer to what I saw when I took the picture.
 
Beechcombing is quite skillfull walking, especially where you take a risk with that terrain that is only available at low tide and in some places the potential areas can lead to very long walks.
 
As a one time rock climber I suppose the horizontal rockface holds a nostalgic fascination, but I have also had a 7 mile walk out on tidal sand that has equalled any of my high level walks for visual excitement, it is just a bit more difficult capture photograhically.

Walked into town a couple of days ago and noticed how the signals and clock tower would fit into the frame together from a certain angle, seemed to suggest Time and Motion.
 
(http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u297/barewirewalker/timeandmotion.jpg)
 
Unfortunately there was a nasty modern lamp post stuck up in front of the signals, so I took two shots about two yards apart.
 
I made two layers in photo shop and rubbed out the lamp post, hasn't worked out too badly as I took the shots hand held.
 
Also the sky was rather plain so I pinched one out of landscape I took out in the country a week ago. Helps perk up urban living a bit.

The Breiddens on the Powys border of Shropshire, taken from a route between Kinnerley and Nescliffe. The light is just showing the saddle leading into and between Middletown hill (lt) and Rodney's Pillar to the right, this is IMO the key to turning the Breiddens into some really good routes. The view is looking across the flood plain of the River Severn.

I managed to finish work early today, so Mrs F and I took a stroll around Baddesley Clinton, a local National Trust property.
 
While wondering around the walled garden there was a robin, singing his head off on the barn gable end.

Not exactly best photo of the day - definitely a disturbing one.  I planned a zig-zag route through one of the forest areas in Cannock Chase as the walking partner likes to see deer and we caught quite a few in forest areas the last time.  Seems like the loggers got there first - very sad to see acres & acres of nothing  :( .  Cant figure out why they left the odd trunk in the ground  :-\

We visited Northern Ireland Last weekend.  Our hosts aren't walkers, but appreciating that we are outdoorsy folk, on Saturday, they took us outdoors.  We had a drive along the North East Coast of Ireland and then visited Kinbane Castle:

Another photo from our visit to Northern Ireland.  We didn't go walking, more clambering.  This picture shows Slieve Donard,the highest mountain in NI, and one of the Mourne Mountain Range in the background.

Bloody Bridge, near Newcastle, NI, is the start of a walk up to Slieve Donard if you're interested.  Wonderful landscape and scenery, but we didn't get to the top.........  this time.

I like it. The subject suits the fish-eyed effect, did you use a lens or was it software afterwards to create the effect.


So often when trying to put together a slide show that captures the atmosphere of a walk it is pictures like this that convey more of the experience than broad landscapes.

From Darkness into Light

Man vs Nature

(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll310/Dazzauk_bucket/Best%20ofthe%20day/Con-OldMan_151.jpg)


The first two are from a walk around Loughrigg Fell, recommended by Rambling Pete and strongly recommended by yours truly as well. 1st is Rydal Cave, second is some steeping stones near the fell.

Final one is the remnants of many of the mining buildings on Coniston Old Man. A revisit via Dow Crag, and a very welcome one.

The clumps are probably Mistletoe. It's a parasite which grows on trees.

Wow, why the slump? Your pictures are always looked forward to on here. I've been on my last few walks without a camera because my compact gave up and started shooting video without me asking it to, and I can't be bothered to carry the bigger one. I tend to prefer concentrating on looking at what's around me with my own eyes, but I regret not having at least a few pics to look at later.

Not entirely sure why. I've been taking photos when I've been out (and been taking what I think are good photos), but, I've not felt like going out for the sake of taking photographs for a while. It's certainly been sometime since I've felt like packing an SLR and bits into a rucksack and gone wandering along a fairly deserted beach under a stormy looking sky in search of photos for example.


Always nice to know other appreciate the pictures.

Millie....looking not too impressed being plonked on the trig point of Garn Fadryn, llyn peninsula!

This one did make me smile.
 
I don't think I'd be too impressed just being plonked there though...    :D

Thanks Paul  :)  I've only approached A.Castles via Lockerbrook/Rowlee Pasture.  After the initial (fairly short) steady climb to begin with, it's easy going along Rowlee Pasture all the way to the Castles.

Thanks Tracey and everyone else. That puffin was clearly after a modelling fee; he stood on a rock about 6 feet from all the long lenses, just sitting there taking direction!

This one was much harder to get; they don't hang about once they're in the air!

Puffins, my favourite  :smitten:

I was reading this article about fake wildlife photographs where any body can go to a game farm and hire an animal e.g a wolf to pose against a suitable backdrop. Seems like cheating to me

Yes yours are obviously are real and great shots, your mention of modelling fee reminded me of that article. These fake shots crop up in wildlife calendars and competitions where I think they should have to declare what they've been up to.

If so, thanks :). It was taken from about 2m away using a Sony SLT A65, with Sigma 70 to 300mm zoom in macro mode and at 300mm.

Is it Stitchwort, it shows a lot of white in along hedgerows now that field herbicide spraying has become more precise, quite a favorite of mine when it first shows at the beginning of summer before the more rampant summer growth of later flowers break it up and overpower its impact. A lovely combination with bluebells.

I wonder what is acceptable, I am looking for a shot of a kingfisher in flight taken from above. I would like to recreate a moment, some few years ago, when Mrs BWW and were sitting on a river bank with our feet dangling about 4 feet above the surface of the water, when a kingfisher flew right under the soles of a boots.


A momentary glimpse that would have been impossible to capture, but could be recreated in Photoshop. Just need the king fisher shot, still got the boots and legs and I know where the river bank is.

Splendid photos. It’s interesting alright how people use photoshop to make their pictures look great but I find it more amazing how others detect those are just a product of photoshop creations. It’s a person’s skill to easily detect fraud I guess because of today’s technology it’s extremely difficult to find out real vs fake pictures without the use of any sophisticated software to analyze or view the information.
Title: Re: My best pic of the day
Post by: SouthDowns on 13:25:37, 17/07/12
I think it depends on what the image is for, and, again depending on what it's for, the degree of Photoshopping that's done. I have plenty of Photoshopped images in my "portfolio" (ooh, get me!), but would never claim any of those were real.

ALL of the following are perfectly valid:

- An image almost entirely created in photoshop as a piece of art.
- An image enhanced to better convey the feeling the photographer was trying to communicate (you'd be amazed how much just changing the temperature tint of an image can change its feel).
- A completely untouched image used to record a fact.
- A completely untouched image used to demonstrate the photographer's skill with the camera.
- A heavily re-touched image used to demonstrate the photographer's skill with Photoshop.
- An image re-touched to remove a distraction, such as the tourists who refused to move out of the waterfall you were trying to photograph.

About the only thing that's NOT acceptable is claiming an image is what you saw when it's not.

Images have ALWAYS been manipulated, whether in processing, or with filters, or with differing camera settings. The only thing that's changed is the technology used to do it.

My flying puffin shot above is re-touched to remove some other distracting birds; you can't direct birds, and a painter would have simply left them out, so I see nothing wrong with that; it doesn't change the truth of the picture, just makes it nicer to look at.

This one is also re-touched, but it doesn't matter because there's no suggestion it's true; it's ALL about the end result. Can you spot the false bits? ;) :

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7123/6952833342_689ce9616e_b.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/southdownspics/6952833342/)
W16 - Pride 3.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/southdownspics/6952833342/) by MarkBerry1963 (http://www.flickr.com/people/southdownspics/), on Flickr

By the way, that one is in some ways MORE real than any of the 5 shots that go to make it up, because it tells you what happened over a matter of minutes in a way that an untouched photo never could. It's like a film all compressed into one frame :). It also took more camera skill/knowledge than one that wasn't intended for Photoshop, because in order for it to work I had to pay attention to much more than I normally would.

Lynne, you should have hung around later in the day. I was on mi way, about 6pm'ish, back to Horton from Ingleborough and got caught in a thunderstorm. 1.1/4 hours of  hail and torrential rain - was a tad damp  :)   Other than that though, not a bad day to be out (by the way, I was on Pen y Ghent about 830am). Prior to the thunderstorm there were some glorious rainbows on show.

Took this on a recent Wild Camp at Hard Tarn (my first wild camp!) - it was an ambition of mine to see a sun rise from way up high - and this way taken from Nethermost Pike in the Lake District - just above Hard Tarn

Thanks Sunnydale & Tracey :-)


I only come across this forum today and made a couple of posts and it's great to get some instant feedback. I guess I'm a relatively in-experienced walker compared to a lot of people on here - but I've been into photography for yonks. I'll be sure to use this forum to share, what i hope to be a lot of walking experiences in future, here's one more pic :-) (From haystacks in the lake district)

@ SunnySpey side - so guessing you live in Northumberland? That is one part of the country I would love to explore further - I always tend to head for the Lake District or North Yorkshire Dales for my walks (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/) - any top 3 recommendations for walks in your part of the world?


And as this is a thread about Best Pics - below is one of my favourite from the winter just gone. Grisedale Tarn - luckily on an 8hour walk the sunlight popped out for about 30 seconds and I was just climbing up Dollywagon Pike when it did :-) It was my first proper walk in the snow and where better to go than Helvellyn?


(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3tmWEoflEwg/T1D9kRVJ5SI/AAAAAAAAAM8/cU_EQjv0cyY/s1600/DSC01526.jpg)

I documented the full walk on my blog for anyone interested:

That's a good pic! Imposing range eh. My photos pale in significance to what you see with the eye - for me the best thing (and most important) is that you get to see these sights in person - if you manage to get a photo or 2 out of it - then bonus! :-) Glad you enjoyed your walk

One F we did go to the lovely Mellon Udrigle, I think it's the most beautiful beach I've ever been on. It was a blue sky day and the view to Assynt coupled with the white sand was wow. Here's a piccy although couldn't seem to get a good one because of the light.

Looks good enough to me - certainly a lot better than mine. Like yourself, I thought it was the best beach I had seen and the views were just spectacular. I would like to go back one day (well ok, night), when there is an aurora. If you haven't already, have a look at http://www.nafirchlis.co.uk/aurora.htm (http://www.nafirchlis.co.uk/aurora.htm)  :)

nice pics @dizzy

reminds me of a few years ago when I was up on the outer hebrides - isle of lewis/harris - the beaches I seen on Harris (scarista etc) were quite similar/spectacular - white sands, turquoise seas, hills in the distance, fortunately when I was there the sun came out and though a bit chilly - it looked awesome - the only sea/landscapes I've seen that are similar were in Thailand! Scotland definiately has some amazing remote beaches - hopefully one day I'll get to go back to those islands...

just went through my archives - pic below is on Isle of Harris - beach called Traigh Luskentyre

Lovely pics , I have never been there at all, but the picture brings back several memories for me. Firstly of a lovely week holiday at Saundersfoot and Tenby with a ex girlfriend, with Beach walking alot.
While at the same time reminding me of Morecambe bay seafront on a sunny day when you can see across to the hills and the lakes.

We had a fantastic day, the air was so clear we could see over to Simon's Seat, (over 10 miles away),  from where we were up near Clapham High Mark, near Malham Tarn.  Awesome

One F led the way and came up with a cracking walk which I thoroughly enjoyed.  The Dales under blue skies.  Brilliant!  http://dittzzy.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/malham-tarn-to-arncliffe.htm (http://dittzzy.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/malham-tarn-to-arncliffe.html)

Ok I have no idea how to do quotes and so in no particular order.....

Wildcamper....lovely pic of Laskentyre. I have looked at photos of this place before and would love to go there but I have boat phobia! We were looking straight across to Harris and Lewis from where we were staying and they looked so inviting.

Jim-thanks :) . Nice to hear from you, hope you are ok and life is treating you well O0

Sparklebug-lovely Lemur pics! We went to Blackbrook zoo a couple of weeks ago and spent ages watching these, they are funny :)

Dittzzy the second pic makes me want to be there, how nice it's been to have some sunny weather.

I'm not allowed to post the link for full size, but it's pretty nice, you can take my word for it :-)


That's something I've always loved about the mountains - I'm not a photographer, but due to the sheer beauty of the surroundings, any point and click shot turns out good.

@Tryfan - simply awesome! I'd been asking elsewhere on this forum about cloud inversions and how to forecast them - as it is on my bucket list to witness such a thing as what you photographed.

@havenchris @glyno - absolutely amazing pics - wow!


Something a little different from me - I was walking on the Cleveland Way to the Wainstones, North York Moors (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/wainstones-north-york-moors.html) on saturday - the heather was in full bloom - and makes for a pretty unique landscape - a change from my usual walks in the lake District

Thanks all :) Just went for a walk in the sun really - didn't expect the moors to be so beautiful or get any photos - the heather is what makes it.


@sparklebug - I guess I'm just a lucky walker really - although the places I choose to walk are normally because I've made a note of them because I've seen photos - so tend to walk to photogenic places...


I'm off to scotland this weekend to climb Ben Nevis (trip been booked in a while) - and it looks like the only photos I'll get will be of rain & grey clouds! never climbed Ben Nevis before so will be good just to stand on top of it! Although probably won't see anything from the peak :-( Fingers crossed though

@sparklebug


just dropping by to post my fave pic from the weekend in scotland - it was infact from the drive through Glencoe, of the 3 sisters of Glencoe (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/ben-nevis-walk.html). The drive from glasgow, via Loch Lomond, the Highlands, then Glencoe to Fort William is one of the most scenic & wild ones i've ever done. I recommend this in itself. I do plan to return to Glencoe in the near future , with a potential wild camp in the Lost Valley of Glencoe. Google the lost valley if you haven't come across it - looks like a canny adventure :-)


Fortunately it was dry on saturday for the Ben Nevis walk - wet the day before/after - so fairly lucky, However no views from the summit (Im told you cant see from teh summit on 9 out of 10 days - so got to be lukcy with that!). I did get some decent pics on the ascent though - which i'll post on my blog in the next few days.

It was only really my second walking trip to scotland. the first being to visit the Outer Hebrides (Lewis/harris etc), from what i coudl gather from other peoples opinions - Glencoe is regarded as perhaps the best Glen to visit - and that's where I will be heading back too!

'Glencoe is regarded as perhaps the best Glen to visit - and that's where I will be heading back too!
Great photo of the atmospheric Glen - but for dramatic scenery you ought to head  a bit further north for An Teallach and the Great Wilderness of Shenavall  O0 Plenty of space for wild camping there.

Sunday I walked up Hartsop Dodd, I was shocked at how clear a day it was considering it's October. Dragged all kinds of warm clothes around with me and spent the day in my t-shirt. I did take a couple of pics but this is my favourite, it's only on my phone but I am determined Santa will be bringing me a camera. I'm writing to him now.

Some stunning pics here since my last visit (for some reason though I'm not getting email notifications now when people post on this thread...will have to check my settings)  :P


I was up in Northumberland over the weekend, and I've just done my first short walk on Hadrian's Wall. I know my hands should be slapped for taking so long to visit the place! :) 
My time was limited so I wanted to do the best walk with the best views (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/best-hadrians-wall-walk-views.html). From what I could gather the best route is from Windshields to Housesteads (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/best-hadrians-wall-walk-views.html), so that's where I went! I gather it's the most popular route - so seasoned walkers on here will know it well - and there is no shortage of photos of this area - but I had to visit the place and get my camera out and take some pics myself :-)I've tried to capture some of the best views of Hadrian's Wall (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/best-hadrians-wall-walk-views.html) below!


If you haven't been to Hadrian's Wall I  highly recommended this section of the wall and it's a good one to do if your time is limited in this area. You can find out more on my blog, which has lots of pictures, route descriptions and map. Check out http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/best-hadrians-wall-walk-views.html (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/best-hadrians-wall-walk-views.html)

I know this is generally for more scenic pictures but I wasn't sure where to post it.
I walk to work everyday as I live very close, I have to cut through a park and they have put a new art work in ... not sure how long it will last but this is it. I do think it's a lovely bonus to my walk though.

that's very unusual D&B... is taken somewhere north Liverpool-ish?


I recognise that v. high building on the waterfront to the left

Glyno it was taken in Everton Park.
It's not a very fancy park but it gives you a fantastic view of the city and the waterfront. It's really beautiful at night too when it is lit up.

And a good view of Wales / Snowdonia from Everton park especially if there is snow on the hills , spent many a lunch time in the park yearning to be over there  O0

I love the view from the park and would often sit and admire the view, now I walk through every day I have sometimes forgotten just how great it is. After a crap day at work it often uplifts my mood and makes me realise things are not so bad.

This pic is from Alison Baskerville, she was commissioned by the Royal British Legion to take photo's of Female troops in Afghanistan. I love this picture of Lance Corporal Rachael Clayton. I think to me it shows a very feminine form in a very alien background.

Bit of a sucker for lumps of old iron lying around the countryside;

However this a rather special plough and probably quite rare, two furrow semi-digger plough bodies with mechanical self lifting, shown by the lugs on the land wheel.

Took this on the walk above Swallow Falls near Betws Y Coed this week - I've increased the saturation as the light was very flat and the camera didn't bring out the colour of the leaves, but it's just one of this simple shots that I really like. It was handheld and taken on my wife's compact camera as I left the DSLR at the cottage.

Just posting a few pics I've took recently while out and about in Yorkshire over Autumn....


Beginning with Staithes at dusk last saturday:

I like them all.  I used to work on top of Sutton Bank (a long time ago), in the gliding club.  Never took advantage of being up there then, too busy working and running a family.  Different now though, and I really enjoyed my walk around that way.  O0 O0

Cheers All


@yorksgal - will have to try that walk from staithes to whitby sometime


@dittzzy - yeh you see lots of gliders taking off from the top of sutton bank - i always think the views must be incredible - and being pretty silent I imagine a glider to be a more enjoyable experience than a plane - saying that i think it would still be hard to get me on one!  :P

Looking towards Caradoc and the Lawley, Shropshire from Lodge Hill, in the Causeway Wood. I never knew that there was a way up until we followed a trail made by the hunt up onto an over grown ridge yesterday evening.



(http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u297/barewirewalker/fromlodgehill.jpg)


This is from a position I never thought that I could get to and this view looks along a possible linear route continuing south along Hoars edge, even if there are a few gaps in the little dotted green lines.

Wasn't having a dig.  It's just I live just across the Tamar and I don't think I've seen the sun since before Christmas.
Every time the forecast picks up a bit the next one comes along and wrecks it again.  Still misty and grey this morning.  :-[

been using my new timelapse cam today to get all the birds on the garden feeder today. There were quite a few before I set it up, robins, starlings, sparrows, collard dove, blue & great tits and a blackbird & wren picking up the pieces of the floor. A different story after I set it up though!! Just this Robin in 90 minutes!!! There was quite a lot of seeds in the basket where the robin is stood but that soon went ::)

Nicely composed picture Caroline, great to get a castle with foreground so dominant, sort of angle film makers send their researchers out to find.


I like the 3rd picture Tomasz, very evocative of the Carneddau, plenty of depth to show how those cutting winds scour across the land, over the N Wales coast and from the Irish Sea.


Shame you did not post all your photos as a TR in the Wales section, your wild camp during this spell of snow will get a bit lost in this Topic.


Perhaps not so dramatic;

If you will forgive a bit of doctoring, not with photoshop but some free software, GIMP, I think this has some of what others saw in your photo. A bit overdone perhaps, but I think the sun was on the castle.

Point and shoot is mostly what I do, because I am out primarily to walk, but it is interesting what secrets a quick shot can hold.

Interesting thought just popped in to my mind,  and I am not being negative or attacking anyone.   But that picture is almost pastel colours in quality. With a feel that you could change the whole picture in to Art work done with pastle/crayons..


Do you get what I am meaning? :)
Title: Re: My best pic of the day
Post by: barewirewalker on 16:00:50, 24/01/13
I was probably a bit heavy handed with the level settings in the sky in particular.
there are adjustments aimed at posterizing, which I believe means exactly what you are saying about turning into a crayon type drawing.


Some times the camera tends to average out, and a bit of PS type of adjustment can claw back a bit of what you actually saw, or else you can totally alter the picture or wreck it if you didn't save the original ::)

Yes i see what you mean it just makes you feel you can create your own pastel pictures from your photos, could sell signed copies then  ;D ;)   But no one would buy them ::)

If you will forgive a bit of doctoring, not with photoshop but some free software, GIMP, I think this has some of what others saw in your photo. A bit overdone perhaps, but I think the sun was on the castle.

Point and shoot is mostly what I do, because I am out primarily to walk, but it is interesting what secrets a quick shot can hold.

Very nice BWW  ;)

Lee, I just liked the way the trees framed the barn.  The fact that there was no snow on the barn walls just made it stand out a bit more I guess, although I didn't really consider that at the time.

Cracking pic. Actually looks at a glance that its been edited to look that way. And i`am not suggesting thats the case for a second O0 O0  lol. Just that youve captured "that look" spot on Like they do on xmas cards. A snowy scene , but a flawaless deer stood nibbling brambles right in the middle of a white out. Intended or not cracking pic. I`am looking forward to learning more about posting pics on here, as i quite like my that aspect of been out & about..

Definitely a Hare spent many hours in my youth tracking hares, as to the cloven hoof, in countryside folklore the hare has had some pretty dubious connections with the left hand side of superstition.

No, it is the old Manor house near Rhodes Woods.  So expensive to run these days, so long time back split into apartments. I have fond childhood memories of sitting on a piece of cardboard shooting down the hill and praying you stopped before you got to the Irk River. If you could not afford cardboard you used a big sheet of plastic, mind you any bumps hurt your bum :D :)

Thanks, it took the foreground to concentrate on the snowy scene, I took a couple of dozen of the landscape in general and they sadly looked rather plain when downloaded from my camera.


Looking back through the batch from yesterdays walk I edited this out of a more general overall shot that Mrs BWW drew my attention too.

Took my camera to work with me yesterday and had a little walk around Wakefield Cathedral, then when I got home at 9:30pm last night I spent half an hour or so loading them up and adding a few effects. I had to use a high ISO in the Cathedral due to the shots being handheld - and here are a few of my favourites.

I use Google Picasa as my organizer/editor/uploader etc etc. Normally I load the photos onto the PC, open up Picasa and then crop/adjust the photos if I'm in the mood. Obviously there are lots of applications out there now which do something similar. A lot of the time I simply upload without any editing, but due to the nature of the shots I took yesterday I randomly picked some out and applied the effects. As it was done through Picasa I don't change the originals so they are safe on my PC O0
Title: Re: My best pic of the day
Post by: barewirewalker on 14:12:05, 31/03/13
Well knock me down with a feather, I thought you were using something more powerful. O0


I bought my first digital camera when they were giving free editing software with the camera, got an early edition of Photoshop Elements, but when my computer expired on me last April, the PS software went with it as I managed to loose the licence no. Now I use GIMP free editing software downloaded straight of the internet.


Loads of free tutorials out there, great for editing maps as well as photos.
Title: Re: My best pic of the day
Post by: botty on 17:14:36, 31/03/13
It's amazing now how much free stuff there is out there that does 75% of what you can do with the likes of Photoshop, but in 10% of the time. That said, if there's an image that I really love then I'll use a RAW copy and use the Canon Software that came with the camera.

I heard the one say,"Look across to Pont Eunant, you can see Aran Benllynn"


The other goose said. "No that is Aran Fawddwy".


So I thought I will check it on the map at home, I think the second goose is right. Then the other goose said,"You know there is a guy taking photos of us behind in the bushes."


The other said, "The water is so smooth I bet he is shooting reflections, lets stir up some ripples"

So I had to go and photograph some footsteps in the snow.






And climbed to the top of Pystyll Rhydd y Meinciau.

Yes, still here bww...... although I'm sure some would prefer if I had followed the Exodus from here. But I'm still in contact with them and walk with them when possible.
 
As for the definitive map !!!
 
I'm devising some routes through Kent and obviously trying to keep off the tarmac. There are a few areas where I'm finding that difficult due to lack of ROW's.  >:(
However, I can't complain as we do have 4200 miles of footpaths that I can walk.  :)

TUT TUT.....!! I would, 4200 miles of well signposted, furnished footpaths are what your councils are obliged to provide, only 4200 miles of access are an affront to your civil liberties.

We do ok ........
In Kent we have 2,075 hectares of open access designated land and 111 registered commons. In addition, the Forestry Commission has dedicated all of its freehold estate woodlands as open country and the right of access applies to these areas too. And Kent is leading the way to opening up the coast line around the whole of the UK. At the moment about 30% of the coast is not accessible...... that HAS to change !!!  But given time I am sure it will change so we have 100% !!
 
 
But what still amazes me how many ROW footpaths I come across that don't get much use !!

Thanks Barewalker. Yes, it is Fort Bovisand, just slightly on from the Yealm - just round the corner  O0


The sea texture was so jammy to be honest. It's after sunset, getting dark. I think at that point it was about 2-3 minutes. I got some fantastic ones later on. Perhaps I will pop a link up later. After dark it was rather ethereal.  :angel:

Nice pic of the fort.  If you didn't know it's actually owned by the ex chairman of the BBC.  Recently they got some lottery money to look at doing it up as a historic attraction.  Most of the upper fort, the bottom row by the quay (out of shot0) and the emplacements you can see here will become flats, if it happens.
The quay itself is worth a bimble if you have ten minutes and not been down there before.

was this a snap or did you change the shutter speed to try and get an 'effect'? - the water seems slightly 'smokey' in nature?

Hi MMJ. This was set to f18 and because it was dark at this point, as in the naked eye was having trouble with picking features out, there was a 2-3 minute exposure - which causes the smokiness. So, yes the shutter speed is altered - it is a lot longer -  because it has to try and 'expose' the picture - hence the timing for the exposure is so long. You can see that the sun has set in the background. I love the fact that the breakwater beacon is in the photo. I wasn't using filters at this point.


I hope that has been explained properly  :-\

Walking off Jerico Hill(http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u297/barewirewalker/sunsetjericohill1439_zps7dd1fb87.jpg)
Jerico Hill forms the north east skyline, that is the backdrop to Llyfyllin.


This is an area for the connoisseur of walks with a very high quality of way, but this does not mean that the walking will be well signposted along prepared pathways, but rather the routes are there for the walker to search out and find. This is Barewirewalking country, barbed wire and sheep netting should be considered seasoning to spice the walking appetite, rather than a nasty taste, definitely an acquired taste.


But the very high concentration of RoW per grid squares in a concentration of contour lines fits in to the history and geography of this fascinating area.

This shot is of Amicombe Brook looking towards Fur Tor on Dartmoor.

Is was sunny all the way to the Bagga Tor where I parked and became cloudy within a few minutes of me starting the walk - typical!

The sun did come out again for the last 30 minutes of the walk and the drive back - is it me?

It is an unusual year in many respects, we went out to find a blue bell walk and walked 5 miles though dale and dingle and the predominance was Wood Anemonies. How often are these lovely flowers at their best at the same time as the bluebells. Also the Wood Sorrel is around and flowering at the same time. I gave up on a Bluebell walk, we had had five miles of Wood Anemones in profusion, woods carpeted with them, lanes lined with them;

A good deal taller than the usual Cuckoo flower and the colour's so much more vivid. Originally introduced from Europe as a garden species but is now fairly common in the wild.

I must make more of an effort to come in here and try to contribute, there are some lovely shots.
Snapped this one while out on a local walk a while ago: the detail of the wings is what caught my eye and how it was collecting the pollen and storing it before flying off.

It's true what they say, its not always about the equipment you use it the person behind it, this was taken with a point and shoot (OK a good quality one) I have professional standard camera's for my when I had my business. But the standard of point and shoots and especially the range of Bridge Cameras is excellent. There was a professional photographer in London tat won a Ł3000 prize a few years go, she has multiple of thousends of ŁŁ of camera equipment, but used a point and shoot.

I have just returned from staying a week near Lampeter in Mid-Wales. On our first day there I walked without a map following waymarks, as these petered out and not being too fussy about checking the other side of the posts I followed a trail of bootprints and high energy bar packets, until this this trail vaporised, hopefully the anti-litter Dalek's were out exterminating this particular sub species of Homo Pratiens. As I sat and looked about me I spotted a distant trig point, from where I was able to reconnect with my limited knowledge of the area. Still a way off the Public right of way I came across this, a well behaved rambler may not have stumbled across it, so it was my Best Pic of the Day.(http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u297/barewirewalker/standingstone_zps3c4b3e09.jpg) (http://)

Point and Shoot = Panasonic DMC FT2 Lumix, great little camera, good quality phots and it's waterproof so not affected by the wonderful UK weather!!!!
 
DSLR = Nikon 700 with a couple of decent lenses, but its to big and bulky to take on long distance walks. So only used on a planned photo shoot walk where the distance isn't to bad

Thanks for that I hadn't thought of a boundary marker, the Williams-Watkin-Wynne boundary stones with WWW  that abound in N.Wales are far smaller. The Cast Iron Great Western Railway boundary markers are designed to give a nasty injury, at knee height, if the hedge or fence that they were originally put in should be taken away.


At some time it appears to have been a hormonal tally board for the more determined in a rather sparse community.

Me and my mate, once did a double coast to coast bike ride, many many years ago in July 1994. It was that, he had just got negative scanner and was telling about the ride and scanned some of the negatives. It was that I had the negatives from that ride and I, too had a negative scanner. So, that I did, scanned them and put to on PB. This is one of my favourites and retouched it, to this result.

IOW Tracey?  Look up the Monday itv4 report from the Tour de France in Corsica, fabulous scenery along the road that careers along the western cliffs.  Now that is what I call an island! You must have been to the alps and France?  Anyone who has been watching will surely be planning to go there for their next walking holiday.

IOW Tracey? ............ You must have been to the alps and France? 


Yep, the IOW!  Not a walking holiday though!  I have good friends who live on the island, so it's just a break combined with catching up with friends - although I may do the odd walk or two while I'm there. ;)


Nope, I've never been to the Alps and I haven't been to France since a school trip when I was 14 :o

Snapped this shot of Pen-Y-Ghent looming over Horton-In-Ribblesdale as I walked into the village at about 5am a few weeks ago. I was camping nearby to walk the three peaks, and just walking to the start. It turned out to be a beautiful day. I should invest in a better camera. :)

However, the most memorable part of the whole walk, for me, has to be High Cup Nick. This is where we stopped for lunch on one day. What a view.

Cheers Guys. It was one part of the Pennine Way I was really looking forward to, and believe me.... the picture does not do it justice.
I would highly recommend approaching it from the east though. It's quite well hidden until you actually get to it, which makes all the more spectacular.

That's a fantastic shot, and reason number 741 for me to just go and flipping walking the Pennine Way already and stop just planning to.

Having just completed the Pennine Way with my nephew, I now have plenty of pictures to share.
However, the most memorable part of the whole walk, for me, has to be High Cup Nick. This is where we stopped for lunch on one day. What a view.

Came across this stone circle on my recent trip onto the Berwyns in Wales, it's called Moel Ty Uchaf after the hill it rests upon.

I missed a 'rainbow shot' on Sunday, on The Roaches. Awful weather. My camera was tucked well away in my bag. I destroyed a camera in the rain a couple of years ago!


Anyone recommend a decent waterproof, compact camera?

Al,  I might be wrong, but I don't really think that a genuinely good quality, fully waterproof compact camera exists. Try looking around here: http://www.wexphotographic.com/ (http://www.wexphotographic.com/)

And this was taken from the window of the apartment that we've been staying in all week as our base. Actually the first night shot I've done; set the aperture and let the camera decide on the shutter speed and I think it got it close to perfect. Maybe I should have changed the white-balance but otherwise happy with the exposure - not been edited at all other than cropping off some of the sky. :)

Nothing special in this shot, just love all the colours. The lovely clear skies really helped with the colour contrast 8)  No editing other than cropping some of the sky out, and I had a polariser on my lens to again boost the colours.

Greetings from Prague!

This is my favourite place just a few miles from Prague - Svatý Jan pod Skalou (St. John under the Rock).

Thanks Mark

I'm no photographer by a long long way, but even with my poor standards they're still a little to blurry for me.
Keep meaning to take a camera on my hikes, but keep forgetting :(

I took these photographs on Saturday while walking from Loughborough to Leicester along the River Soar. It was the first of many walks I plan to do in 2014. The river was in flood, there was ankle deep mud for miles and I hated every minute of it at the time. I can look back on it now as one of the best walks I have done for ages. The entire walk worked out to 19.7 miles in length after all the detours I made for flooding. You can see an animation of my exact route if you click the link. http://i1203.photobucket.com/albums/bb383/BohemianBrummie/2013%20ROUTES/GPS%20TRACKING/2014/197M.gif

 On Christmas Day while the turkey was cooking I went for a walk down the river Tees from Barnard Castle past Abbey Bridge to the meeting of the waters where it meets the river Greta. At this point there is a lovely bridge and house. (https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/t1/1526365_801338679883551_1338662776_n.jpg)

I grew up on the Wirral. some absolutely stunning walks available there. Wirral Country Park is one of my favourites. The walk from West Kirby, all the way along the old train route used to be one of my favourite days out as a kid.

Absolutely it's worth a visit, the new complex "Marine Point" and the improved pavilion are great. I was telling people in work and apparently New Brighton is "Yuppie Town"  O0  I don't know about that but when you consider what it used to be like (forgotten) it's looking good!

P.S I wrote about my walk on my blog (shameless)

As a new member I've really enjoyed looking through all 127 pages of this thread.


Not from today but a couple of pictures I've got on photobucket.


I'm sure many here will recognise the first one, taken on a May weekend 2 years ago, if I remember correctly about the only decent weather we had that year:


(http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s160/kleida/tarn3.jpg)


This one is in the foothills of the Alps in Provence last summer, about 400m higher than Ben Nevis:

Not really my best pic but the memories behind it were wonderful.
These sheep took a very keen interest in me, probably thought I had food, then the farmer came along and allowed me into the
lambing sheds to see all the new lambs, one pair had just been born. A brill memory and a lovely farmer.

I did a solo walk today, 18 miles from near the M25 motorway to High Ongar. Some parts were very muddy & I got caught out by heavy rain, but also the sun was out in the afternoon, so very enjoyable & some nice photos taken. Best photo was this one - right at the end of the walk.

Out with the doggies this morning, noticed a foal in one of the fields. It wasn't till i got closer that i realised just how 'new' the foal was. The mare still had the placenta! Wish i'd been there a bit earlier.

Thanks both :)  I was fortunate to find a guy who runs a company that has a private bird watching hide, in the centre of Aviemore, on a small trout lake/pond.  They get between 2 and 6 or so birds in every morning from dawn, so it was just a matter of fitting a session in one morning when it was convenient with the family.  As it happened I was back to our log cabin by about 8am as all the action happened between 5 and 7.  A very early start and not cheap but totally worthwhile to see and photograph the birds at such close range (we had 5 birds fish that morning) !

I spent a few hours in Sutton Park today which is the largest urban park in Europe. I took a tent, box cooler full of food and a football. It was nice to not do a long walk over the weekend, but also frustrating as I ended up being bored after the kick about with family. The only interesting thing that caught my eye was the herd of stampeding cows that ran past me on a mission that only they knew about. I lost count of how many there were, but I am sure they surprised if not scared a few people out that day.

I like to think that panoramic photographs make all the difference. That is how you would see it with the naked eye. All of the photographs I take are in panoramic format. I take 3 separate photographs and stitch them together in Adobe Photoshop.

I like to think that panoramic photographs make all the difference. That is how you would see it with the naked eye. All of the photographs I take are in panoramic format. I take 3 separate photographs and stitch them together in Adobe Photoshop.

I have put a few panoramas together using up to 7 or 8 images. I find Microsoft ICE is an excellent program to use (and it's free!).


Another reason for me to almost never use my regular camera (TZ20) is that my smartphone (Galaxy Note 3) does a brilliant job of taking pano's. Take the first pic, then pan, and it add's the rest as you turn. The results are fairly impressive. (Stanage Edge, link to large pic: https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2910/14207479226_8e2242879b_k.jpg (https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2910/14207479226_8e2242879b_k.jpg) )


However, i generally don't have more than 3 frames worth in a pano, i think it makes it too thin and throws off the proper perspective.

Talk of panoramic photos leaves this old timer mystified.
I started with a 120 B&W camera given to me which had been liberated in Normandy and then progressed to 35mm. The cost of developing and printing made such a hole in the pocket money that I learnt to be selective and patient before pressing the shutter.
Today with digital photography it's a case of fire away and put half the results in the recycle bin, and of course you can photoshop and trim to turn a poorish pic into something passable.


I still miss the kick of picking up photos from the chemist to see how they've turned out. My favourite photo (of my favourite spot) was taken on film. Scanned into the computer but never manipulated.  I've tried to repeat it using digital cameras but somehow I've never managed to get the light and atmospherics right to do so.

Great photos everyone - @Penygadair - I have so much more respect for photographers who used to produce beautiful photos in film - it's so much easier these days - and yes I just click away - some work and a lot get deleted. On the flip side digital photography encourages lots more people to take pictures and get into photography!


I was walking in the Lake District last week and we walked to Fairfield via Deepdale. Perhaps it's one of the lesser well-known routes but it made for some great views! Here's a few of my fave pics. (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/fairfield-ullswater-best-lake-district-walk.html)

Some great shots here folks!


I was walking up on the North York Moors yesterday evening on Egton High Moor near Egton Bridge and took this shot: (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/walks-egton-bridge-north-york-moors-heather.html)

If you can get to the North York Moors - then now is perhaps one of the best times to visit as the heather is truly spectacular! If you are wondering exactly where this shot was shaken - then I've put a map on my blog post - which you can see here http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/walks-egton-bridge-north-york-moors-heather.html (http://stuarthodgson.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/walks-egton-bridge-north-york-moors-heather.html)

Have to say that despite my love/hate relationship with London, I've enjoyed seeing CallMeSteven's pics from the London area. (I loved working there but hated living there)


A few pics of Hyde Park, Ken Palace Gardens and Holland Park would bring back memories. I'll never go back.

Thanks, I'm currently walking all the parks of each London borough! It'll take me a while, I'll post the best photos as I go round. I don't
really live in London, I live close to Epping Forest in Grange Hill (Chigwell), but it is close enough to get to the smoke  :)

I think CallMeSteven's photos show that urban and urban-fringe walks are well worth doing, with a lot of interesting features to see.   
I find that what I call townscape walks can be very enjoyable   :)

Out for a local walk today, saw this behind me.  Up the hill to the right of the lit valley then into the head and back down the centre of the valley is one of my favourite walks, but which valley is it?  I about 400m N of the C2C path at the time.

I enjoyed a 5 hour walk on my local hills yesterday. The weather was nice all day, and by late afternoon the lighting was lovely. I lingered till sunset before heading back home.
