Halcion Days - Morgan's Pool

Spring Sunshine over NAA Morgan's Pool Although this pool looks like a place that has been a serene area for many years it is actually quite new, This and it's nearby pool Woodstock are both Man made in the last fifty years. I can remember visiting the pool to fish in the 1980's when the banks were more like looking at a building site. I no no longer fish but still visit occasionally just for the calm and solitude

Bristol Channel Panorama

02 Sep 2019 3 2 69
This image is a panoramic view of the Bristol Channel from the holiday resort town of Porthcawl in Glamorgan, South Wales. The panorama is constructed internally by the camera, [A Sony a6000], automatically by keeping your finger on the shutter Button as you rotate the Camera. It does not have the resolution of an equivalent manually created panoramic image and the fact that is shot in JPEG means that the amount of processing latitude is limited but it is still an acceptable image for it's purpose, and at 4.67MB it's a lot more manageable that the manual .DNG Panoramic I created from similar data that weighed in at 330MB!

Now that could be painfull !!

Reedmace growing through a small hole in a Bench at Parc Slip Nature Reserve. On a serious note it does bring to mind the line from The Jurasic Park series of Movies "Life Finds A Way" There is no photo trickery in this image, the image is completely as shot (excepting mild processing of Light and Colour)

Marching Gull

02 May 2019 3 4 97
Lesser Black Backed Gull at Cosmeston Lakes Country Park, Penarth, (Cardiff), South Wales. Not a rare bird and quite unloved by most as it lives on a rubish tip and eats anything it can get but can be a stunning sight in good light. Image aspect is 16:9 so is ideal for use as a wallpaper for many computers and even TVs
