A nice photo, CK, and a good idea for a thread. I hope to contribute soon.

Ophelia blew through yesterday and ripped a few trees up. Calling it an "ex-hurricane" was very dramatic but very overblown......

Dogfish. Not good eating. This bycatch will end up in lobster pots.

They are Dogfish (or 'Spotted Dogfish'). They have no commercial value; they have to be skinned before filleting and are not a well-flavoured fish. Their numbers are increasing, so removing them is beneficial as they scavange in competition to the vastly more valuable lobsters and crabs.

Alfie - how are you getting along with your new camera? What make is it?

I am really liking the new 'Instagram' button on here: it makes sharing photos so much easier. I link directly back to my personal (and only) Instagram account, but there are plenty of people who create multiple Instagram accounts to separate their personal from professional.

I generally process my photos in Snapseed App. But for the dogfish I used the Olympus Palate app. I also subscribe to Adobe Creative; it is expensive, but probably the most powerful editing/ archiving tool going. I back up everything (and I mean everything; laptop, phone, tablet) to Dropbox on a paid subscription. And I keep careful physical records of my passwords.

I market my photos via EyeEm. I've earned a little money via these guys. The biggest seller is an industrial photo. A friend echoes this: graphic industrial photos sell.

Hope this helps!

CK

Great photos Alfie, and a great time of day to take them - the Golden Hour, just when the light is at its best!

Storm Brian made Saturday a washout. But Sunday was nicer. The first picture is high tide, and unbelievably a surfer was out in that. The coastguard had turned up, but he was perfectly happy: we saw him, board under arm, walking back along the breakwater and promptly jumping back into the melee....

CK - that's a cool new thread Man !

Your pic of Brian and Castletown reminds me of Porthleven in West Cornwall - the harbour wall goes out into the sea similarly and massive seas crash over it when the weather is up. People still walk along the wall taking pics - some years ago a Policeman, his Panda car and a Baby inside were washed off and perished !

What a beautiful place the IoM looks ! Apart from the dogfish - I thought dogfish was sold in F and C shops as 'rock salmon' ? But I could be wrong.

(I'll see if I can find a pic to join in - BUT - on my last day in the UK, Sis and I were trying to copy pics onto her computer from my camera - and we deleted them all on the camera instead. So it could be problematic ! ).

Nice to see you around.

Thanks Roger!

That's a sad story. A few years ago some boys became trapped at the end of the breakwater in my photo and a police van was bravely driven along the wall to rescue them. Luckily all survivied that. Easy to misjudge an incoming tide in a storm.

I thought it was rock salmon too, but I Googled it and it appears not. Perhaps it was tested as that but found to be unpopular. These days alternative farmed fish seem to be on the chip shop menu!

Try the Instragram option: it is very straightforward. If your camera has wifi you should be able to transfer the pictures to your phone and from there to Instagram.

Nice to see you around.

You too!

If I didn't know these were Thailand I would be convinced they were in the USA! Great photos!

Another one from storm Brian. This is the view towards Spanish Head from Calf Sound. Popular myth has it that 'Spanish Head' is called that because a Spanish Galleon fleeing the Armada defeat was wrecked on the rocks here as others were around the UK coast, notably at Antrim, but there is no evidence to support that this happened here. But the first name Juan (pronounced 'jew-ann') is a very traditional Manx name for boys.

There is a harbour here; the steps are visible (just).

^ That's a nice photo, CK. You've captured the waves really well.

Sunrise over Douglas Bay. For the first time, the massive wind farm in the Irish Sea was clearly visible a few days ago: you can just see it in this photo (just a hint on the horizon, across to the right). Much clearer are the hills of the Lake District.
