  4. Got up early...had planned an early morning drive out to Kynance Cove, but didn't trust the roads with the amount of ice around, so walked down to the bottom of my road instead.....and was very glad I did! 🙂

  11. A slightly unconventional shot of an aircraft for me, but one that highlights the crasftsmanship of those early Hawker Biplanes that were the mainstay of the RAF between the two world wars.

  19. What a feast of close up and macro entries we have had this week ...Kobione started the ball rolling with her unusual St Andrews Cross spider , then Fogey with his technically named Green spider AND Golden bee and a lovely backlit white butterfly followed by John P's amazing Owl butterfly from Ecuador and his rare White-letter Hairstreak... A real plethora of quality images alongside a captivating photo of a boxer dog by Fuji and a reworked mono of Exeter Cathedral by MattGrey that took my fancy ... However one set of images really stood out with a real wow factor and that was Blac

  23. Yes, it has been a strange and difficult year in many ways for all of us, but Christmas Day is here. Christmas did come to my house a few days ago, the Christmas tree went up: Brodie wasn't sure about her new costume, and Kelly didn't like to move because then the jingle bells rattled!! I will be having some time with son and family, it's early morning and we have sunshine! Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas, and let's all look forward to a better 2021. Best wishes to all.

  32. Well its been a week for archive bug shots making us all long for the spring and summer to come...the weather not being the best in the UK has made for some wonderful snowscapes. Before I announce this weeks winner I would like to give an honourable mention to David995031 for his funny yet sad image which he posted in the just for fun section, where images dont show on the main pages, so often the post will disapear quickly much like the subject of said picture... his depiction of the disappearing snowman. On to this weeks POTW and my choice is one of the aforementioned snowy scen

  33. My wife, daughter, mother-in-law and sister-in-law - who between the 4 of them pitched in and surprised me by buying me the Yongnuo ringflash as a Christmas pressie. Hopefully this will help spread the light better than the ringflash I have been using (on the Venus lens loaned me by @Ryewolf - thanks again Geoff) especially with the home made diffusers and something I bought to add to the heads. There is little to get photos of just now, but I took a few last night to see if the light evened out - so I have a bit of experimenting over the next few weeks as subjects offer themselves u

  34. Latin name Pholcus phalangioides, this arachnid is sometimes called the 'Long-legged Cellar Spider' - it is relatively easy to identify due to the very long legs and cylindrical body. I found it in the garden shed - and those long legs sure make it awkward for framing!

  36. Not the usual sort of thing I photograph. I took this back in the Summer of last year ( I think ). I had ignored it until now. Think it turned out OK. I liked the light falling on this little plant growing in a cliff face.

  39. And so it falls to me to select the first POTW of 2021... Honourable mentions to: Brushes by Vanguard. I'm a sucker for monochrome images and I thought this one worked really well. Mist in the Valley by Ryewolf. I really like the layers of mist and the blue light. But my favourite of the week is Cruise to Norway by stevedevil. As others have said, this looks just like liquid gold - a wonderful shot. Well done Steve! Gareth

  42. I once saw one of these Grebes swimming backwards - there was a bow wave at his bum and I remember thinking that it was a good idea to have good sphincter muscle, otherwise he would fill up and sink. The Grebe was looking over it's shoulder to see where it was going.... sort of ...'left a bit,'........'right a bit', and I was thinking what a cocky little show off he was....... Until I saw a fisherman looking very sheepish as he reeled this bird in. Then it dawned on me it wasn't saying 'left a bit',.... 'right a bit',....... rather, 'what the F*?&%'...... anthropomorphism

  43. This Boxer pup has grown up so much since I first took her portrait some months ago now... She is extremely bouncy and excitable, but sat immediately on command, then, gave me this look as soon as I pointed my lens at her.... FUJI

  44. Oh dear ... thought this was a post just from Gareth and answered it as if it was .... sorry Fogey ... Thanks for your Christmas wishes ... it really is an odd one this year isn't it ... and in the circumstances the technology becomes quite a lifeline when one can take part in video calls on numerous platforms and still at least talk and see other family members who are isolating or vulnerable though I am mindful there are a lot of empty chairs too that will not be filled when this is over ...Usually there is an abundance of Christmas cheer at this time but maybe it's not a bad

  47. Well it's my turn to choose the pic of the week this week which really means the one that I like as compare to an objective best photo. Coming from mid summer in arid Australia I am very attracted to the snowy landscapes that were posted this week by khm which were all excellent in different ways. The photo I kept coming back to as my favourite this week though was the study of the emerging pinecone by Fogey titled "Pinecone". I really appreciate nature studies like this one. This one stands out for it light and composition - the pine needles that spray out from the right hand corner,
