I was able to go back to the Badlands, really a small area North of Toronto that looks somewhat like Badlands. My tripod did some creeping and some images were soft, so I got a little creative. The biggest problem is trying to avoid footprints!!

This, I may say, was shot at great personal risk: not from unhappy people but from frostbite!

Snow on the mountains above 300 metres... sheeesh! Or swish, if that's your thing.

This is somebody else's thing.

Thank you for the comments and your interest, Rob, Francois, Eric and Walter. Rob's comments certainly made me laugh. Really, the area is more like a large gully in a park. Nothing as dramatic or exotic as a swish in the mountains! Had I been facing the mountains without, at least snow shoes, I think I would be taking a swig in the mountains!

Lovely. Much to emulate. Not a critique, but the best I could do.

The East Lyn, Devon



This is where I think the slow flow of water works best and even this flow could have a bit more shutter or a two shot shutter priority and paint back in some of the detail around the rocks. Paolo showed some shoreline shots where I find the use of extended shutter times not nearly as exciting but I honestly think because I've come to like one in a series, but not all in a series. Personal taste.

One this shot, I'd like to see the tops of the trees, upper right a bit less "hot."

Just to show that sunny Mallorca is as bloody cold and damp as anywhere else in winter, here's yesterday's view from the penthouse; the snow-capped mountain sits just behind Pollensa town and is called Tomir; the further away one with the flattish top (just cloud cover) is Puig Major, higher than anything in Britain at 1445 metres. It used to house an early-warning system along with air traffic control...  not sure what it does now. It freezes every winter; hate to have to drive the track up there to service the radar.

There's a road starts at the base (already high up) within a military complex with machine gun guard at the gate; we stopped there thirty years ago to get our bearings and consult our map, and the guard instantly upped the piece. We waved and drove off rapidly.

Good thing he didn't know where to find the trigger.

Good thing he didn't know where to find the trigger.




The car of the day was a basic, yellow Fiesta Festival, with smallest petrol engine available. I had left the UK with intentions of going back to basics and getting out of the stupid rat-race of car fantasy equated with status etc. etc. and enjoying lfe on a more rational level of existence. So, trying to get the hell out of the guard's sight was never about to turn into a gun-challenging, screeching wheels sort of take-off... maybe he was just bored or fancied the look of my wife's long hair. Mabe trigger training was scheduled for next week?

Anyway, be that as it may, the tiny engine didn't last: after a few airport trips with family coming and going on holiday, the realisation that passing a bus (or even a farm cart) meant taking our lives into my hands, coupled with the arrival of a new model of Fiesta, the XR2, with bags of power for such a small car, soon saw the small, eco-friendly death trap absorbed into that long list of personal mistakes.

Loved the red stripe!

Since this thread is now growing long and we have had problems with overy long threads before (db problem?), I have split this topic off to a new thread
