Every time I see your shots, my mind goes back to when I was a kid and I used to travel from the UK down to Greece on a bus. From the age of twelve, I came down every summer in order to spend the summer with my mum. I always looked forward to the Alpine stretch of the journey. Austria and Slovenia was always the best part. In 1979, being a poor student, I purchased a second hand JAWA 350 634, borrowed some cash and came down with my girlfriend (leaving a trail of smoke behind us). I remember ending up at some border post really high up where Slovenia, Austria and Italy meet. Can't remember the name of that particular point of entry, but what I do remember is the border guards  astonishment at seeing  Brits on a JAWA 350. It was party time. I can tell you that we were very popular with them on that day. Same happened when we got to the Yugoslav-Greek border and when we finally made the journey back at the end of that summer.

Always like looking at your shots.

All the best

Byron.

Very nice image, Lee.  Brings to mind all those country walks I used to go on when I lived in the UK. I always used to go into the churches and spent many a moment sitting under their porches waiting for the rain to abate. By the way, changing the subject a bit, I did Ten Tors in 1975. Not too far away from where you are. In those days, I was in the Royal Marine Cadets in HMS Pembroke, Chatham. That's another story. Talking about stories, Bruno and David (morepix) got one, too. Hope I'm a good story teller !

Anyway, all the best to you and look forward to seeing more of your shots.

Regards

Byron.

Interesting images. It would be nice to see more. The high-key effect definitely expresses the subject matter well.  Bruno mentioned the existence of heavy guns there.  Might be worth giving them the same treatment.

Best wishes

Byron.

'' The twist of a spanner''  -  interesting interpretation.

Fine set, Mick.. cascading "milky" water shot is very attractive - love the boulders and rock "framing" - good lighting and textures in there.. innovative arty work by your wife and well captured by good yourself, I'm finding some resemblance to Mark's "Don't fence me in" series (just kidding, guys!)..

Thank you for sharing,

You have to look at the original size to realize it is a color version.   Thank you for sharing, Michel!...

This shot is outstanding!  I took a few during the last snow, that upon looking at them, I couldn't tell that they were not B&W as well.  But that's where the similarities end.  You have captured something really nice that evokes a very bone-chilling (in a wintery sense) feeling.  Makes me shiver looking at it.  Overall, very nice photo, and I'd even say it is "frame-worthy".  Great capture!

Regards,

Mick
