  • 12 from this year

    Good afternoon all,

    I hope you are all well and dry.

    Following on from Iain`s comments I also have had a changing year with the camera. going from the old trusted E510 and E600 which rear screen died mid year (cost to repair not even a thought) So bit the bullet and purchased E5 and a lot of kit Of Doug on the south coast.

    So here are my 12 from the year quite a few have been while away from home with work messing about with train bogies.

    Sunset silhouette while away

    Winter hoar frost taken near Knutsford

    Lake view taken in Weald Country Park near Brentwood

    Storm brewing over the city of London, one of the many I have taken from the Holiday Inn Express Newbury Park near Ilford

    Sunset view from our holiday in Corfu believe me a view we never got tired of.

    Ferry sailing to Zeebrugge with the Gregory clan for a weekend in Brugge

    Red Arrows during a day out in Weston -super-Mare, a nice suprise as first real time with the E5

    Heage windmill only about a mile and a bit away seen it all my life in various states of repair and finally got the bike out and had a look around

    Cape St Vincent lighthouse sunset Algarve, Portugal (did it get cold when the sun started to drop) believe me it did

    Tower bridge dull day so played with the dramatic tone on the camera

    Waterfall actually in the grounds of Rydal Hall in the Lake District. Well worth a look around and believe this it is free

    Only found this place for a walk on Christmas Eve, Padley Gorge Grindleford near Chatsworth. Can`t wait for next autum so many broad leaf trees I think it will be special

    So there you go, probably not perfect but its 12 that mean things to me.

    Thanks for looking and all the best for 2013 lets hope it drys out

          London Bridge stands out for me, although I would be pleased with any one of them.
          The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

              A superb set, Ian, and I have to say the Red Arrows stands out. However, 2 and 5 are my favourites, just the sort of pictures I like. All the best for 2013.

                      Good afternoon to all,

                      I would just like to thank you all for your views and comments and to say it has been very interesting to view all the set of 12 posted.
                      What a varied bunch we are but that the name of the game photos take at times are very personnel and mean a lot to the heart.

                      Not wanting to wish the year away but looking forward to next years showings.

                      All the best for the year.
