This is another of my favourite modes of transport. Time to relax and take things at a slower pace. Great photo Martin.

Thanks Dave.

This evening's walk around Hartlebury. First signs of autumn colours, although it seems very early in the year for them.

After the recent horsey discussion, I liked this:



It breaks the composition rules, the horses should be facing into the picture, not out of it. But the sunshine was very fleeting, so I had no choice.

I liked this too:



But I'm not sure if anyone else will. Often when I show my pictures to others the response is "what did you take that for?" :)

Fortunately the car driver had the sense to park in almost exactly the right position, and facing outwards. 6ft further to the left of the picture would have been even better, but you can't have everything. I sometimes try photoshopping such things, but it rarely works convincingly. Any more cars would have spoilt the whole thing. 

Martin.

That is a great photo. I love the way that you have caught the horses in the mist with the foliage giving a sense of depth and perspective.

There are thousands of pictures showing this view of Worcester Cathedral, taken from that side of the bridge.

But not so many looking across the bridge to include the city coat of arms on the parapet. Yesterday I found out why. With 4 lanes of traffic and a constant stream of pedestrians between me and this shot, I was standing there for a good 10 minutes before I could get this: 



Here is the Google view: https://goo.gl/maps/pZFAv3FesSo

Gates are often put in first and the fence ( or wall ) is then built up to it. The gate appears to be new, it hasn't got all it's hardware in place yet.

Those mysterious gates are quite common along public rights of way on access land. When livestock is on the land, electric fence wires are attached to them. You can see the next post in the picture.

No marks for whoever made those gate posts -- they should have an angled top. With flat tops, rainwater will lie on them, enter the end-grain of the wood, and they will rot.


Rob Manchester wrote:The gate appears to be new, it hasn't got all it's hardware in place yet.It's been there for a few years now Rob, along with several others on the site. The gate latch has gone missing -- either needed elsewhere, or maybe stolen. The gate was swinging open when I arrived. Judging by the long grass around it, it hasn't been used recently.


Matt M. wrote: I'll bite. What are you giving up on?Taking pictures -- when I saw that one come up on the Radio Paradise slide show. I'm not going to match that, am I? :(

Mike (the RP picture editor) now has over 50,000 pictures in his database including about 200 of mine. He accepts about 50% of the ones I submit. Some of mine do come up quite often on the slide show -- I noticed this one was on tonight:



It's pleasing to see your pictures being shown to the world. To submit your own, go to:

RP is a non-profit radio channel, with no irritating advertising between the music. They rely entirely on listener donations. Here's the music/slideshow link:

Thanks Martin,

I'll have a look and listen.

There are less salubrious parts of Slovenia that can be photographed.
I don't think Lake Bled is a fair example of the average.
