Love In A Cold Climate, Windsor

One from last weekend's fog in Windsor Great Park. A more thorough catching up beginning now. Way behind, as is typically the way at the moment, and I missed some people last week. Apologies if that was you! Hopefully it won't be for long!

Incoming (Landing Craft Light Trail), Göcek

One from back in September in Turkey. Hundreds of shots sat on my HDD and I thought I should get some shared while I have a moment.

Göcek is nicely set up for long exposure enthusiasts. This one and the two (previously posted) shots below were all taken from posts, walls or boardwalks - improvised tripods waiting for you everywhere. I really like the way the antennae have come out, even if the blur from the rocking boat has blurred the text strangely.

Have a great weekend all!

Goatzilla (West Caucasian Tur), Tallinn

Tallinn Zoo has the biggest collection of mountain goats and sheep in the world. This is a West Caucasian Tur, rather than a goat. They're pretty big beasts, as you can see. It's a neat display, in that the beasts get rocky hillocks to roam about.

The light and distance wasn't quite right to go for an f/22 all in one job, so, whilst nothing has been added or moved, this version did rely on CS5 to get both in focus. I've just upgraded from PS 7.0 - the selection along the gravel line took a couple of seconds, compared to maybe half an hour in the old version. Very neat software.
