When Tempest Photography photographed Truro School last week, I captured a time-lapse, which the school have published on Facebook, where the video has received over 8000 views and generated a lot of comment amongst the school community. Take a look on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TruroSchool/videos/1086252061413446/ or on YouTube at https://youtu.be/dEt-b5xOUas.

Basaltic lava from Mount Teide in Tenerife which has flowed through Los Roques de Garcia from the higher eastern part of Las Cañadas caldera to the lower western part, creating a lava fall. The lighter-coloured pyroclastic rocks are also intruded by a cone sheet. Click on the icon for a high-resolution zoomable version of the image.

Just got back from a fantastic trip to Tenerife. This is a panorama from the caldera near the Roques de Garcia, looking towards Mount Teide. A higher resolution version is at: http://www.gigapan.com/gigapans/182307

+Chris Bowness Happy New Year. It was between three and four years ago that we were regularly posting and comparing notes on Flickr. Life has become very busy for me since then. Thanks for taking a look at my photostream, hopefully 2016 will be a year with plenty of photographic opportunities.

Photosphere from the Blue John Caverns in Castleton, Derbyshire. Neither the best weather nor best location (on the road) for the photosphere, but I am impressed with the way the app stitched the railings and cut out my feet. I need to work out how to ensure thst I close the last little patch of sky.

Ollie won a competition to design a luxury hotel in Minecraft. We thought it would be good to produce a photosphere from the hotel atrium and here it is. The coordinates are for the school computer room, since we struggled to know which real-world coordinates to use. We were pleased with the final result when we viewed it on an Android phone.

Having a first play with issuu.com by uploading a short photobook from our holiday last year. I have a lot to learn about creating documents for publication, but uploading the pdf to issuu was straight forward.
Images taken during our summer 2015 holiday at the Chateau du Doux, near Beaulieu sur Dordogne in the south of France. The chateau has self-catering apartments and is available for weddings, conferences and group bookings.

The British Geological Survey are releasing three new Minecraft worlds this Wednesday, based on the topography and sub-surface geology of Ingleborough, Thannet and Ipswich. The attached images show sub-surface and above-surface views if the Ingleborough Minecraft world. The land surface and surface of each major rock unit is modelled in coloured glass. The rest of the interior of these Worlds are empty. Standing on the surface of a major lithological unit and looking up at the underside of the ground surface is a novel experience.

Golden Valley Camp site after the weekend campers have left. It was definitely not crowded before, but now we have a quarter of a large field to ourselves. A fantastic camp site.

My daughter has completed her Gold D of E Expedition in Slovenia. As an opening sequence for her video diary, we recorded this tour in Google Earth Pro, starting in Truro, Cornwall and ending up on the coast in Koper, Slovenia. The Slovenian scenery is impressive, as is this facility in Google Earth Pro.

Bob Warren gave four of us a two-hour introductory lesson using sit-on-top kayaks. The conditions were perfect and from the initial safety briefing, through paddling techniques, towing, transit lines and deliberately capsizing, to getting out at the end, we felt completely safe and fully in control. It was amazing how much we got done in the time and how enjoyable the whole experience was. We are booked in again for our next afternoon later this week, in which we need to come prepared with a trip plan, based on the weather and tidal conditions. Highly recommended.
