Pacifica Pier

Working though a backlog of images after time away from photography over the past few months. This is another image from a wonderful day spent in the company of +Nathan Wirth  last May. Can hardly believe so much time has passed since then. There was quite a bit of sea mist toward the horizon at the time so not all the images I took have an actual horizon visible, fortunately this one did. 

Interesting how time away from an image changes one's view of. Really thought I'd not managed to get anything too worthwhile from this location because of the mist. In colour, the images tended to look a little washed out (which in terms of the colour they were), however there was still quite a tonal range in there, just had to bring it out with a bit of post-processing in Silver Efex.

Location Suggestions  - 
 
Another suggestion: the Essex, Suffolk and possibly Norfolk coast - most of it reachable from Stansted airport. Some very pretty locations e.g. Aldeburgh, Southwold, some more industrial around Felixstowe and Harwich and then the more unusual (and challenging photographically) Norfolk coast. Plenty of options for accommodation from cheap and cheerful chain hotels to B&Bs. Depending on time, the North Norfolk coast might be an added extra as the roads along the coast are not exactly high speed. Example images from Aldeburgh, Southwold, Walberswick and Dovercourt. In autumn, it quietens down quite a bit so even the tourist traps like Aldeburgh are quieter - indeed quiet enough to get some of the best Fish and Chips in England!

East Anglia isn't as flat as people think.

And the best fish and chips in England come from Babbacombe. ;-)

Don't quite get Nikon's new 18-35, seems a tad pricey compared with the 16-35. As for the $18000 800, wow!

+Russ Barnes Arrived today. Unfortunately I'm laid up with flu, not sure a few photos of the cat at the bottom of the bed is a suitable test, but at least my temperature is coming down, so maybe this weekend! It handles nice is all I can say!

Just received David Wilson's excellent  book "Wales, A photographer's journey" and discovered we've both been documenting the gradual decay of this small abandoned farmhouse in the Preseli Mountains, though my visits are much less frequent. This image is from 2010 and we're planning to return to photograph it again in May of this year. Will be interested to see how much more has disappeared in the intervening 3 years.

Beautifully layered scene!
 
The Menai Bridge

So yesterday I went out looking for snow, jealous of some of the great photos that I've seen taken across the UK.  Sadly living so close to the North Wales coast, we didn't really get any so we (my wife and I) went inland.  After driving around for a bit, we took a wrong turn and ended up going up a steep country lane with nowhere to turn around.  Had it not been for the expert driving of my wife not only would we have returned without any photos but we probably wouldn't have a car either as we started sliding back down.

Anyway after all the fun and games we did find some great snow but unfortunately not any interesting locations so you'll just have to make do with looking elsewhere for your snow images and knowing that my wife and I had a great time walking our dog.

Instead this is an image from last year.  I've got a whole host of images that are sitting waiting for me to make a decision on or that I've started and not finished from late last year when I couldn't get into editing.  This is one of those, taken on a trip to Anglesey with a good friend of mine as we went to photograph the lighthouse.  On the way back the light was great so we stopped by this popular view point and took a few images of the Menai Bridge.
