The Grouse of Rannoch Moor

The Grouse of Rannoch Moor by Les

Posted on 2015-05-11

I've been across Rannoch Moor on a fair few occasions and I can't remember one time where the sun was shining! Still no matter, there's always a photo to be had there. On this occasion I frightened this grouse from the loch side and he promptly leapt into the loch before realising that he was not a water bird! Much thrashing and struggling later he managed to clamber on the rock for a photo opportunity.

Short eared owl

Short eared owl by Doug

Posted on 2015-02-06

On Wednesday Nige and I went and stood out in the cold most of the day in the hope of catching sight and getting a few images of short eared owls. There is seems to be a roost near by but we were all waiting and watching over one of the fields where they have been seen hunting regularly, after a few hours we were rewarded with a wonderful display by one of them who showed us its skill flying

A Wild Exmoor Pony

A Wild Exmoor Pony by Christine

Posted on 2015-01-13

The Exmoor Pony is Britain's oldest breed of native pony, thought to be little different from the original wild ponies that colonised Britain many thousands of years ago. It's destiny has been determined by people since the time of the Celts.
A registered Charity, the Exmoor Pony Society was set up in 1921 by moorland farmers for the registration of pure-bred Exmoor ponies, the conservation of the breed and the preservation of the breed standard and thus maintain Exmoor's heritage.

To The Glory of the Mountains

To The Glory of the Mountains by Les

Posted on 2013-05-02

From Tokavaig on the Sleat peninsula looking across to Blaven at centre right and the Cuillins in the distance.

The light on this afternoon was quite flat but these 'rays of cloud' could just about be made out and the composition was promising so I gave it a go with three exposures for a HDR. When it was all put together the sky just 'popped' and what I thought might be a disappointment turned into quite a decent shot.

Rooftops 2 by grouser

Posted on 2014-09-19

From the roof of St Laurences Church in Ludlow ( a Market town on the English side of the Welsh borders) looking almost towards the south with Broad Street running from the centre to the left of the frame. Most of these rather grand houses started life as hovels and as the town became more affluent got large new façades built on them. The clock tower in the centre is on the Old Butter Cross market building. At the bottom of Broad Street on the left you can just discern the Broad Gate, the only

Fascinating how these Black Swans have a different 'character' to the more common Mute (white) Swans, they are less aggressive and demanding !

Gypsy John's Engine by Kate

Posted on 2013-02-28

Two days ago Gildor passed away leaving John stranded on the Exeter Roundabout after 18 years of close friendship between Gypsy John and his horse. I took this photo February 2013 and also took some photos of John who is a very private man who has been living his alternative lifestyle for 40 years.
He is the most interesting man and I value any time he spares me. I plan to print a copy of this photo for John.

First Year by Avian Grey

This is one of last year's heron chicks now coming up to one year old . . . I am amazed at how dominant he already is within the flock and how strongly he defends a territory that he has claimed.

Waiting

Waiting by Bonvilston

Posted on 2014-09-18

This is a scene in a nearby town where there is a lot of disadvantaged people. There is a high proportion of people who are poor, unemployed, old and infirm. The whole place has a definite atmosphere of lack of hope and ambition. This image sums it all up.

View of London

Golden View by Ian Smith

Posted on 2014-08-21

Possibly the most photographed vantage point in London...(except maybe a selfie in front of Big Ben) ...it's such a compelling view that even after all these years of crossing the Golden Jubilee Bridge (opened in 2002) I'm standing shoulder to shoulder with the tourists to capture it time and again.

Eilean Glas Lighthouse

Eilean Glas Lighthouse by Les

Posted on 2013-09-20

I’ve long wanted to go to Eilean Glas lighthouse on the island of Scalpay but it’s a fairly long walk from the nearest road so I was delighted when our boat trip to the Shiants called in there. As we approached we could barely see the lighthouse through the sea fog but once we landed the sun came out enabling this shot. You can still see the fog hanging over the sea in the distance.

Sunday morning exercises 3 of 4

Sunday morning exercises 3 of 4 by Doug

Posted on 2015-01-14

The crew of one of our local lifeboats at exercise on Sunday in the Bristol Channel off Burnham-on-Sea. I went up to see what was happening up on the beach with the high winds while the tide was in and was given the opportunity of catching the brave lads and lasses of the RNLI at work.

In this rapid recovery, instead of beaching the boat they drive it onto the trailer which together with the tractor has driven into the sea, a very difficult manoeuvre for both the helmsman and tractor driver

It is very hard to put in words how I felt standing in the middle of this architecture marvel; a fine example of Gothic English architecture. The intricate details and the history of the chapel is evident everywhere you turn.

Sunset - Severn Vale

Sunset - Severn Vale by Nigel

Posted on 2014-10-18

This is a local beauty spot. The sun was going down quickly. The couple in the shot were already in situ - he had his camera set up on a tripod and was taking pictures. We stopped the car. My wife opened the door and without even getting out took a photo with her iPhone. I got my camera out - fitted an ND grad filter and walked over to take a shot of the scene. Oops - no memory card. The sun was getting lower. Back to car,memory card inserted - a couple of steps and click. This was the result.

Mao in London

Mao in London by Nitin

Posted on 2014-09-15

"Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history; such is the history of civilization for thousands of years."
--
Mao Zedong

I don't know why I chose this quote of Mao, but I realize that after reading so many of his quotes I disagreed with quite a few. And this one is one of them. Precisely because he makes it seem like a natural phenomenon. But its more a result of mankind's greed and selfishness, which of course is but natural, although not normal.
