22.3.08 - Happy Easter! We actually had some snow showers today, but none of it settled so no snowy DP today. I had to go into town, and on the way back decided to dodge a particularly nasty snow shower by going into the cathedral. I timed it just right for a guided roof tour, and ended up staying for nearly two hours. This isn't my most innovative or quirky shot of the cathedral, but it does show its gothic majesty off best. I can never get my head round the fact that this was all built by hand; no scaffolding, no cranes, no laser range finders, just blood and sweat. I took over 80 photos today(!), so some of them will make it to other galleries when I get chance. I'll probably start a separate gallery for Cathedral interiors, and there were some stunning views from the roof! Happy Easter..........    I've put one of today's efforts here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#268878026    New Cathedral Gallery now here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4562724_EH5v6/1/268904689_tgGam#268904689
2-22: This is another from a sunset a few weeks ago. I like this one because as you look at the clouds from west to east you can see the color vary from more orange to more pink
3.10.09 - Ghost in the Machine  Ghostly goings on at Gainsborough Old Hall. I've had this idea ever since I found out that this was called the "ghost corridor", so while I was trapped inside the PC I thought I'd have a go at creating this. It is the first time I've experimented with layers in this way, maybe I should have made Lydia even more transparent, but hey I'm sure I'll try this again.  Those of you that haven't already seen my gallery of the Hall might want to check this out;    http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/History/GAINSBOROUGH-OLD-HALL/9662694_gb4gb#652216254_Fyruu  Thanks for the wonderful response to my silly SP yesterday, it was a lot of fun making that :)
A shot of a piano in our home. Its a beautiful piece of furniture to bad I can't  play it,,,,, The company I found went out of business during the Great Depression I have been told the piano dates back to approx 1915 to 1920. Just a neat piece to have a round. Have a great day everyone. And Thank You for all the great comments you all put up daily...
January 21 - Moody Journey  This is perhaps one of the best skies I have had a chance to photograph. The sky was full of clouds and the sun was shining bright. Over the year I plan to try out different photography techniques. This is another HDR experiment. I'm not sure if I really like HDR or not. What are you thoughts on HDR? Good and bad welcome.
Gorgeous sunrise yesterday!!! The water was so still and the sky had such unique color. I shot all around the harbor for over 2 hours! Unlike today, where I overslept and missed the whole thing!  Plymouth Harbor, Ma

31DEC2011  Sunset bridge...  Found this in a park next to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, take time to stop here this was one of the most scenic sunset's i have witnessed for a long time, Blue heron's, cranes, geese, a whole plethora of waterfowl show up here. Three miles north is the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge home of cape's wild horse population. The area is also known for great seashell gathering and Kill Devil Hills is just twenty miles south. This would be a place to bring your paddle craft i saw many photo op's just off the shoreline that would have been awesome provided the temperature was acceptable.  Thanks for all the great comments, wishing all a Happy New Year. #1 Dec. 31st 2011 Thanks go out to Paul Jr. who forces me to get better....Linda who shows me the direction even if it is the internationally known i'm # one sign....Linda's great without her these pictures don't get to you.... the also great DAILY community, thanks for looking hope to see you out on the trail and in the backcountry this year.....let me know how i can help you get there!

Lake Isabelle, Indian Peaks National Wilderness, CO    A new version of a photo from our trip to Colorado in July 2010.  I want to get a large print of this so I had to re-crop it for 8x10 aspect ratio and I touched up the processing.  It seems like every time I revisit old photos I find new ways to process them.  And I don't even do much stuff, just little tweaks make a big difference.    I think this was the first photo I took with a DSLR that I really liked a lot, so it is one of my personal favorites.    I hope everyone has a fun weekend!  I know I'll be watching some good football games.    Daily photo: January 15, 2011, reprocessed January 15, 2011, taken July 30, 2010
September 16, 2011 - featured today on Scenic USA   http://www.scenicusa.net/091611.html  May 8, 2011 - "Sapelo Island Lighthouse"  Sapelo Island can only be reached by boat.  The island has a very interesting historical background.  5/4/2011 -  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapelo_Island_Light  "Sapelo Island Lighthouse is a lighthouse in Georgia, United States, near the southern tip of Sapelo Island, Georgia. It is the nation's second-oldest brick lighthouse and the oldest survivor of Winslow Lewis lighthouse projects.  Sapelo Island Lighthouse was built in 1820. It was designed and built by Winslow Lewis. It had a fifteen Lewis lamps with 16 in (41 cm) reflectors. In the 1850s, the tower was raised by 10 ft (3.0 m) and a fourth-order Fresnel lens was installed in 1854. During the Civil War, the lens was removed. It was extensively repaired after a 1867 storm and relit in 1868. The tower was damaged by a hurricane in 1898. The lighthouse was replaced in 1905 by the a pyramidal 100 ft (30 m) skeletal tower with a third-oder Fresnel lens. This tower was dismantled and relocated in 1934 to South Fox Island, Michigan. Sapelo Island Lighthouse was inactive from 1905 to 1998, and is now privately maintained and unofficial. The original lighthouse was renovated to its 1890 appearance in 1998 when it was relit."

Photo of Dave King singlehandedly sailing his boat from San Francisco to Hawaii in the 2010 TransPac race. I captured this photo in the open ocean, just after he exited the San Francisco Bay. Needless to say, these were challenging shots to obtain - as my sailboat was going up and down and sideways, my subject was doing the same - and we definitely weren't in sync!

Even open-ocean sailors reported the sailing conditions to be very severe that day. Articles of the race reported "Conditions were severe under the bridge, and got worse out in the ocean. It was so rough that Second Verse, a Cascade 36, was hit by a wave and knocked down until the spreaders were under water." Dave was competing against 14 boats of all types, broke his boom during the trip, and finished the race in 17 days and 3 hours. Not only did he place second in the race, he received the Single Handed Sailing Society's Belt Buckle, and the Foxxfyre Trophy for creative ingenuity under sail, because after breaking the boom in the race, he repaired it and kept on sailing! Incredible!
