    Nice photo Iain,I like the horizontal line the sky provides and the way the light from the puddles guide the eye down the path.

  3. Nice! I'm a sucker for lines and delineations of texture.

    The Island of Rum - And this is where the path in the previous picture takes you to. As an idyllic a pitch as any I can remember. A much better view across to Skye. The weather was beautiful - my mate - that's him down on the shoreline - was pulling fish out the sea apparently at will for dinner - cooked over an open fire. It doesn't get much better than that for me. I could show some more of this trip if any one is interested. Leica M6 - 35mm - cheers - I.

    I wondered where that path led to,cracking spot to set up camp.
  7. Amazing. Really wish I'd gone there when I could.

    I take your point Barry - an empty road is in some ways a blank canvas - but sometimes a road picture needs a figure or figures to give scale and context. It gives the viewer a 'way in' to the picture. Nubra valley. Nikon F2 As Photomic - 200mm and Tri-X.


    To prove my point - and breaking the rules on this thread - but you will forgive me - a picture taken by a close friend of mine. The aftermath of the 2011 tsunami in Japan. A town hit by a 40 meter wave. Polaroid - shot for exposure test before film. Yours - I.

  10. I wonder what the two people are talking about while they are walking on that rough road in the heat of the day........." I told you to fill up at the last petrol station!" or " I could kill for a camel just about now!"
    Great picture. :) P.

  11. That’s lovely Iain.
  12. As you know Iain, I do like a bit of post-apocalyptic imagery. Excellent.
  13. My shipmate chilling in the skiff while we're headed to a location. Kodiak, Alaska.
    Kodak disposable waterproof camera with Kodak film.
  14. Works do on Saturday, which was actually a blast this year.
    Couple of shots I tried on the way home from the bus stop - with varied success. It's a couple of miles trot along the ridge and I didn't switch the head torch on once. These are the best of a bad bunch - I was quite tipsy and it was around midnight.

    This is on a relatively short section of sunken way.


    This is the best of the bunch shot at 1/3 f/1.9 apparently, facing ENE I would think with the moon off to the right Leeds way. Next time I think I'll take a tripod...

  16. I find that first path oddly enticing. Even in the dark.
  17. What I really needed was to put the torch further down the path as the bushes form an arch, didn't think of that till I got home though. Which seeing as that was sort of my plan for that bit of the walk home let's you know how good the evening was.
