This is one from the archives that I haven’t posted here before….it has been uploaded to my gallery and one day I will create a gallery page specifically for travel images….

Well, I posted this for the photofriday challenge…link in the footer of this page…for the topic of ‘home’. It’s a good little project that encourages creating some new photography based on a theme, or to re-discover some older images.

This photo was taken during a cycle touring trip. This photo was taken just after leaving a small grocery store having filled up with ice cold fizzy pop!! This family were happy for me to take their photo and the boy was perfectly happy watching the world go by perched on the window frame!

A peaceful evening at Chesil beach…There have been svere storms here recently…but all is calm now!

Just a simple composition with the buildings on the horizon providing some scale. Chesil beach is a strange formation as it is a beach that has a lagoon behind it so it is a beach surrounded by water!

Anyway, it was a peaceful evening with lovely skies….and that is all that mattered to me!

I am always looking through older images as I never delete a single one! Images that I ignore when I take them, I see things in them later that make me glad I didn’t hit the delete key.

This photo is one of those and is a ‘natural’ panoramic. Natural in the sense that I photographed it as a panoramic format image. It’s a multiple image stitched panoramic photograph. I was stood in the middle of a piece of heathland, patiently waiting for deer to pass through. I know they reside in the area as I always see fleeting glimpses of them from time to time.

Unfortunately, or should I say ‘as usual’, I did not see any deer. I would have loved to have seen them pass, as they would have really added to this composition, as the viewer would see this just as a forest photo, and on closer inspection would see deer camouflaged against the winter foliage.

But, alas it was not to be…but never mind, I love the colours, the red/brown against the bluey grey….and that is what originally struck me when I was out there.
