12 from this year

Good afternoon all,

I hope you are all well and dry.

Following on from Iain`s comments I also have had a changing year with the camera. going from the old trusted E510 and E600 which rear screen died mid year (cost to repair not even a thought) So bit the bullet and purchased E5 and a lot of kit Of Doug on the south coast.

So here are my 12 from the year quite a few have been while away from home with work messing about with train bogies.



Sunset silhouette while away



Winter hoar frost taken near Knutsford



Lake view taken in Weald Country Park near Brentwood



Storm brewing over the city of London, one of the many I have taken from the Holiday Inn Express Newbury Park near Ilford



Sunset view from our holiday in Corfu believe me a view we never got tired of.



Ferry sailing to Zeebrugge with the Gregory clan for a weekend in Brugge



Red Arrows during a day out in Weston -super-Mare, a nice suprise as first real time with the E5



Heage windmill only about a mile and a bit away seen it all my life in various states of repair and finally got the bike out and had a look around



Cape St Vincent lighthouse sunset Algarve, Portugal (did it get cold when the sun started to drop) believe me it did



Tower bridge dull day so played with the dramatic tone on the camera



Waterfall actually in the grounds of Rydal Hall in the Lake District. Well worth a look around and believe this it is free



Only found this place for a walk on Christmas Eve, Padley Gorge Grindleford near Chatsworth. Can`t wait for next autum so many broad leaf trees I think it will be special



So there you go, probably not perfect but its 12 that mean things to me.

Thanks for looking and all the best for 2013 lets hope it drys out

Ian

Great shots Ian, difficult to pick a favourite, but the sunsets and the Red Arrows stand out for me.

London Bridge stands out for me, although I would be pleased with any one of them.

Yes, a really nice set Greg. I think my favourite is that grass silhouette.

Re: 12 from this year

A superb set, Ian, and I have to say the Red Arrows stands out. However, 2 and 5 are my favourites, just the sort of pictures I like. All the best for 2013.

Some great shots. I like the simplicity of the first one, and the Red Arrows one is terrific.

Re: 12 from this year

Good afternoon to all,

I would just like to thank you all for your views and comments and to say it has been very interesting to view all the set of 12 posted.
What a varied bunch we are but that the name of the game photos take at times are very personnel and mean a lot to the heart.

Not wanting to wish the year away but looking forward to next years showings.

All the best for the year.

Ian
