Snowflake (Winter Wonderland Wheel), Hyde Park

Playing with my second hand Zenitar fisheye lens at Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland fair. Definitely one for viewing "large". Not sure of the final WB on this, so I posted B&W. Original colour is in the comments below. Hope everyone is having a super week.

Seastate (Peverill Point & Rain), Swanage

This is one from an ongoing series trying to catch the ferry going along the horizon in long exposure. I'm only down in Swanage once every couple of months and with weather, tides and daylight hours all varying, it's taking a while to catch it. The timetable seems to have changed, so I missed it again.

Out at night, with a high tide and thick rain thrashing against the rocks, I shot this one anyway, and kept it for the impression it gives of the storm - that purple sky is SOOC. By the time I'd finished (this is a twenty minute exposure!), the tide had trapped me on the point and I had to climb up the crumbling defense tower to escape.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Willow The Wisp, Mill End

Willow The Wisp, Mill End, originally uploaded by flatworldsedge.

Same scene as last winter's Meltwater shot, taken last week in the thick mist. White balance was a hard call on this one; so I've left it as shot. Light pollution dominates this version, rather than sunset as per last year.

The pillars of light behind the bare tree are torch/flashlight held in a few static positions over a couple of minutes.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
