My attempt at photographing the big moon last night. Not as good as I'd hoped.   >:(

I got these from the last one.





And a load more besides. Last night all I saw was this:

^^^ That's a good photo of the moon, caller.

I had another go tonight. It's slightly better than my first attempt but it's still not good.

It is a great photo: avoiding camera shake is tricky. Brilliant result.

I like this picture. I think the bokeh (blurred background) enhances what's in the foreground.

Beautiful photo Alfie; very like a painting. Are you going to have this professionally printed and mounted for hanging? It would be worthwhile.

I hadn't considered that, CK, but I think it would make a nice framed picture.

I've got another bird photograph that I really like because it looks like an old fashioned book image and I think it would look nice framed.


OK, two photos of the same bird. :)

Countryside scene. Preparing the fields for a second crop.

Happy New Year to One and All!







This is the brilliant present given to my son by his uncle: a Stirling Engine.

Great pictures Alfie. Did you find anywhere that could print your pictures at high quality? I had a very brief look (and found these people amongst others http://www.superkraft.co/?page_id=201) but I am sure there must be local companies. What I cannot find is anywhere that does the same range of options as the UK or US (metal, acrylic etc. like https://uk.whitewall.com/) but they must be available.

Keep posting: I really enjoy seeing them.

Very cold here this weekend, but at least it was sunny!

I always look at pics on this thread and thanks to all who post them.

From the Guardian - some beautiful pics from '5 short hikes'.

https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2018/jan/10/five-gorgeous-short-hikes-in-europe

Included is the walk from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo on Madeira - I've done that return trip many times. I'm prone to vertigo - at first I had to turn back at the bit in the top of that picture - couldn't even crawl past the drop on the right. But managed to get over that. There are tunnels and some ledges whilst hanging onto a wire in places - rock falls demand reroutes around another peak sometimes.

At the top of the Guardian pic - on the right in the cloud, I was close to a ridge early morning as the sun rose. Cloud was rising from the west side of the ridge and the sun rising in the east, I've got that right hopefully ?

For some minutes as I walked the ridge, a circular rainbow was projected through the haze onto the cloud with my shadow in the middle. No camera on board. Fantastic moment.  ;D

Yet another adventure I must repeat before I'm too old !  :(

Do you own a camera or have a camera on your phone, Roger?

Hi Alfie. I do have a simple camera and a basic phone. As my School Reports used to say - 'could do better'. ATB

Great. Go and take some photos and show us one or two. I'm sure they'll be interesting for us. :)

After the 'Post a Photo 2017' marathon, I have been slow on the shutter button. The weather really has an impact: limited daylight hours. And we are into the swim season: various swim competitions have kicked-in and soak up time ('scuse the pun!).

This place is a proper traditional ironmonger. Long may it continue!



Sorry this is non-descript: a pier lighthouse. The pier is interesting: it was home to a very broad-gauge railway crane. But behind the lighthouse is the home of Sir William Hillary, founding father of the RNLI and a man worth remembering.

I've been suffering creative block since the end of my (self-imposed) post-a-photo-a-day challenge in 2017. It has proved to be more of a barrier than I anticipated.

So, I have to push through it. And my choice of a subject this year is Food. I follow a wonderful photographer called Tim Clinch who takes amazing photos. Search @clinchpics on Instagram for more. He is worth following. I'd love to get Tim over to Thailand for some workshops if anyone is interested.

Food photography is something everyone can do. And bear in mind it is a useful contribution to social monitoring: taking good photos, and correctly labelling them with a detailed description, place and time adds to a historical timeframe. 

My early effort: some wonderful Sea Bass. From Tesco. I had to gut and clean them, but it just shows how supermarkets are not the evil they may seem: increasingly they actually support local suppliers.

Managed to drag No.1 son out for a walk yesterday. He managed to spend the bulk of it not looking at his phone - perhaps because it was muddy and there was a good chance of falling in a river.

This is the toy-town tourist railway where we walked.

^^ I'm not usually keen on food photography but that's a great picture of the fish, CK.

Many thanks, Alfie. Food photography is something I would like to try more. I follow a professional photographer called Tim Clinch. His website and galleries are worth looking at: http://www.timclinchphotography.com/
