Two Old, One New — Lens-Artists Challenge #210

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for this week’s challenge, set by Sarah of Travel With Me: Picking Favourites.

This first shot is of a sunrise I captured in the coastal town of Arbroath, Scotland, & is my number one choice. To capture this meant an early rise whilst on holiday–with sunrise at about 0530. I’d also looked at the weather for the morning & the conditions looked like they would be ideal. We were up (yes, my long-suffering wife came with me ๐Ÿ˜‚) at about 0430, had a quick breakfast & headed to the seafront to get a good vantage point. There was a bank of low cloud sitting on the horizon with higher cloud above catching the sun’s colours before it arrived, which I took several shots of. Finally, the sun peeked over the top of the clouds & turned the world orange just as a small fishing boat left the harbour. The fishing boat is more of a silhouette, just like the gulls following it, but you can see the light glowing through the windows of the wheelhouse. There was also an interesting reflection off the seawall top–on the left of the picture. I love the scene as a whole, but it’s also the fact it was a planned-for-shot that worked & the fishing boat was an added bonus.

Surrealism Without Photoshop — Lens-Artists Challenge #209

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for this week’s challenge, set by Tracy of Reflections of an Untidy Mind: Surreal.

I thought this was going to be a real tough one as I headed into my archives.

This first shot was taken in Glasgow & is unedited; it looks like it could be made of 2 or 3 different pictures.

Seeing Double โ€” Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #207

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜€ The crazy moderators at LAPC have given me the honour of hosting this weekโ€™s challenge.

Seeing double is all about reflectionsโ€”probably one of my biggest photographic obsessions. I tend to see them everywhere & actively seek them out when theyโ€™re not readily apparent. My reflection hunting started shortly after I got Snappy, my DSLR, 12 years ago with some poolside reflections.

This shot shows reflections of objects not seen in the picture, in this case, Malibuโ€™s Serra Hills behind the house.
