  1. Somehow I had deleted the text to go with these two photos before I posted it ... so I have now re instated it !๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. I had to smile when this goldfinch looked down at the family of longtailed tits on the fat ball feeder below who had commandeered it and I could almost hear him saying ...."Those pesky longtailed tits !" ๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. Presumably the Mill near you ... the water always looks glass like ...no doubt confirming why it the simile , " As calm as a millpond " originiated from the effect of making a reservoir next to a mill ( to power the wheels ) The processing works too .... I can see why you love to walk here.... two cracking images Denis ...
  4. Your compositional skills really show up on your landscapes Denis ...the point of view and where you have placed the tractor in the image contribute to the overall balance a great deal ... and your subtle processing works too .. Nicely done ...works for me .
  5. Thanks Folks ... I live in hope of catching him with a good sharp view ... now that I have seen him land on the same branch 3 or 4 times, I can set up my camera and tripod ( always used hand held up to now ) in the kitchen for a few hours every day to cover the time that he now seems to appear on some days ... You never know ......๐Ÿคž
  6. Another week has rushed by and I had this picture earmarked on Monday and used it as a yardstick for the rest of the week. I really like the way this member so often uses portrait format for his landscapes and seascapes and he has mastered how to get the best out of his camera looking straight into the sun and capturing compositions with exquisite light and perspective . He is usually very modest and self deprecating too so I am pleased to choose a pic from Rybear's excellent set called Amroth Sunrise ... Well done Ryland .... You can find the original post using the link below:
  7. I know exactly what you mean Denis ... I have quite a few pics taken specifically to show the domination they can have over the landscape.... a bit like wind turbines . Sometimes they can have an enigmatic beauty .... I would have like to see the base of the pylon just to ground it but looks a very moody dramatic sky Denis ...sort of war of the worlds feel to it .
  8. Going by how long itโ€™s taken me to get this one Denis .... It could be another year!! Sadly ... it takes mostly our popular garden birds to feed on but thatโ€™s part of the balance of Nature..... ๐Ÿ˜•
  9. How embarassing .. I cant believe I did that !๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  10. They are beautiful looking raptors James ... I think they are our smallest falcon. Again , this was taken through the kitchen window yesterday ... I have since pruned some of the branches to try and eliminate the branches that are catching the auto focus.. There's no point me trying manual ... there'll never be time !๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. This Merlin has been coming to my garden for over a year ... .. He disappears in a flash .... just like his namesake the wizard. I have to use auto focus to get even the remotest chance of catching him and I have loads of images of just a blur of grey exiting the frame . Yesterday he was on this branch for a few seconds and these two shots are the best of 11 ... missed the focus but at least you can see it is a Merlin ..... One of these days........
  12. Dear me .. I should have recognised that .. my other half worked his entire working life in Sugar beet Production in this country... doh
  13. Aarghhh I do not like wasps David ..... I hope you haven't got a nest of them in the vicinity.... However I do hope Santa is a TIPF member and sees your Christmas wish ....
  14. WOW... That would have scared the Bejesus out of me !! Is that a field of sprouting broccoli that they are galloping through? Looks like a fine stag with his does .. but what are they doing in what looks like a field of cultivated crops? I'm seriously intrigued Denis... you did well to get a couple of shots for the record .
  15. It certainly would be colourful.....It is interesting Fogey ... would we even recognise what would be symmetrical patterns if the colours and tones were not the same .... my point just being , can colour disguise symmetry ? I think that you are maybe right in that if it were complementary colours....that would more likely show up as symmetry but if it was random colours, would we notice any symmetrical pattern ? Ah well ... another glass of claret and I probably wonโ€™t care anyway ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ That looks like a pretty Cosmos by the way ..
