  1. It's my turn to choose POTW - there were lots of good images to choose from this week. Honourable mentions go to: Rybear for sunset over llanmadoc hill - the second image (the monochrome one) and Fuji for A Serene Scene But my pick for this week is Paul's After The Rain Showers: Full thread here.

  9. Had a look on the fence panels again tonight but there is not much around the garden. Hand held so not quite nailed, I found three. Possibly a Neriene montana in the first one, then I think a young walnut orb weaver in the second, and a common cross spiderling in the third among the leaves and twiggy branches of the shrubbery starting to wave her web (you can just about see the spinneret releasing the web). Paul.

  12. Godrevy Beach, last evening. I didn't think the sky was going to be friendly, but this emerged about 10 minutes after the sun dropped and lasted for about 5 only.

  13. Am not very active recently, not due to Covid restrictions, but due to a hip problem, ok driving and yesterday was nice and sunny, so did a cruisy drive to the Bass Coast. Too many people around for me to walk the dogs on the beach, because it is school holidays here, but I did stop at a couple of laybys where you can see the beach. It was quite breezy and fresh. You can see the path down to the beach on the right, but it was too steep for me.: A closer view of that interesting bit of cliff that is left standing, the dark spot near the top is not somebody climbing it, but there

  14. So many great landscapes this week that I had to choose one of them for POTW. I really liked MattGrey’s “Godfrey Beach” and “Golitha Falls”, Rybear’s “Ilanrhidian Church” photos and Longman’s “Cowslips and Clouds” and decided on Stravinsky’s “Centenary Square” for POTW. Like others, I appreciated the perfect symmetry of the buildings and their reflections.

  15. It's great to see so many members getting out and about and posting photos on TIPF! And so many that I really like particularly Paul's macro photos of a ladybird beetle on a gerbera flower but the photo I've chosen is the "You have to crack eggs to make an omelette" by VWGolf - very original subject, skillfully executed and lots of fun.

  18. I rarely enter competitions nowadays, as all the judges seem to have qualified about half a century ago and have never seemed to change their style or knowledge since. However, as my camera club manages with Zoom nowadays, I thought I ought to support it, so entered this in the competition, then wished I hadn't bothered! My other camera club has lost over half of its members due to lockdown and not coping with Zoom and is now down to fewer than 20 members. Sadly, they seem to be doing the same as the judges, being stuck in the 1970s and not embracing change Thank you, everyone, f

  27. AT LAST! We are free to wander away from the confines of home.... ..A photographer pal and I had a GREAT day out in the sunshine yesterday.... the Parade in Leamington Spa, has been pedestrianised so almost no traffic except for access ..... A lovely relaxed atmosphere....almost Holiday-Like... The sun seems to have given people smiley faces too, yiu can see here, just how many were happy to allow me to shoot portraits.. Even the security guard at the Shopping Arcade, was sent out by his bosses to ask what we were doing... all very pleasant...he told us his boss is

  33. Hard to do this place justice in a single photo... Rough Tor is the second highest peak in Cornwall. This is taken from the top today, looking over to Brown Willie, the highest point in Cornwall. I walked them both today. Would love to spend some proper time up there catching a sunrise, or sunset....but not sure my legs could handle another trip just yet!

  34. We all know it is always rewarding to drag yourself out of bed for the sunrise but it is not always easy to motivate yourself. After several days promising myself I would do it I finally made the leap today. Much colder than I expected but here's one of my better efforts. More to follow.
