An RNLI Hovercraft, with personnel from HM Coastguard on board, working on the beach near Chalkwell, close to Southend-on-Sea.
A shot taken for the textures in the scene. Enhanced through Lightroom 4 using HDR Efex Pro 2.
Leigh-on-Sea, near Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
This week my local photographic group had a trip out to Melton Mowbray and Rutland Water.
This is Rutland Water’s best known landmark – Normanton Church – saved from a watery grave when the dam was built and now a museum and popular wedding location.
Believe it or not, this is a double water droplet collision – two falling droplets colliding with the ‘stem’ that has risen from the water at the base of the image.
The first collision has created the wide brim that covers most of the width of the shot – but the second, more rarely seen, collision – has created that small ‘crowm’ or ‘coronet’ in the centre of the brim at the top of the stem.
Another water droplet shot – not quite water – this is water slightly thickened with Xanthan Gum.
The idea is to make the water bind together more tightly.
Does it work? …. beauty is in the eye of the beholder …. I’ll leave it up to you.
A dawn view from the Schafbergspitze Hotel near Salzburg of clouds across the valleys.
Taken at Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast yesterday morning. Martello Towers built to keep Napolean out!!
A blustery, but very pleasant morning on the North Sea coast.
Six images taken on an iPhone4 and stitched together using Photomerge in CS5.
Not bad for a ‘phone shot’!! 🙂
Another cold, grey day in London! But this seems to capture the feel of the day.
Up early for this one! Just after 5 o’clock – but it was really worth it.
This is a new venture for me – an HDR image formed from three separate shots taken at different exposures.
I hope it works for you.
