Tony - I could feel the power of the Storm Surge! Perfect timing on this shot with maximum impact! Nice!

Re: just cute B&W
In reply to skimble, Apr 2, 2013

Siggi - these are cute! Now is this a Roo or a Wallaby? You Aussies have so many marsupials - I can't keep up. I just see them on TV and say "That's a Hopper".

Tone - that's quite a unique setting. A Western Club with Canadian Cowboys - and British flavored Public House - a Pub w/ Hee Haw Entertainment!

I need a glass of Ale - and I need to lie down! 

Nice street shot!

Re: In camera Pano _ LX7
In reply to pierrep, Apr 2, 2013

Pierre - excellent Panoramic! You've got the exposure spot on and matched very well throughout the frames. Nice!

I've tried the in camera pano and I keep getting vertical lines - arggggh!

Nice capture, Eduardo! Now what is the odds of finding a black and a white water bird posing together? Good catch!

Stuart - this is a gorgeous image! The clouds above, the foreground Windmill and all those houses lined up off in the distance! Is this on the continent? Beautiful shot!

Rick,

You get a lot of practice at articulating thoughtful comments about all the photos, of whatever merit, folks post in your thread. It must be equally useful as shooting photos of your own. Well done! And thanks for taking over this weekly thread, for however long you're willing to keep it up..

Thanks Rick. This is Lytham Windmill, about 1.5 miles from my front door. The windmill is a landmark and sits on a wonderful stretch of grass edged promenade that runs for about 3/4 mile. We're on the NW coast of the UK.  If you're a golfer it is the home of the Royal Lytham St Annes golf course where, every 10 years or so, the Open Golf Championship is hosted.

Beautifully documented power of North sea(?), Tony.. for a moment I thought it would be nice to see this "explosion" in colors, but than I realized it would be probably all B&W tones on a gay stormy day as this one  .. well done, thank you for sharing..

Cheers,

Fine image, Tone.. well captured the sad looking "daytime" impression of attractive looking (thanks to some neon and tunes) place in the night time  .. the story is completed with a taxicab waiting to take somebody home to face the "truth"(read - a wife, LOL)..well spotted and processed, thank you for sharing ..

Best regards,
