    Spooky, I waited ages for the right shot. There was a storm out to sea moving up the channel and I wanted to capture it before it got too dark.
    Looking the other way across the port you can see it on the right on the horizon.

    a case of right place at the right time!

    This is my home PC desktop. I'm not much of a photographer, so I'm sad to say that this photo of my old B5 2.8 Quattro - taken the day after I bought it, about ten years ago - is still my favourite car picture. It's at Samphire Hoe in Kent.

    yes mate, as said in PM but to keep continuity on here - the picture of One Canada Sq, Canary Wharf was taken from the 24th floor of the old Lehman Brothers building last year during a refurb project for JP Morgan that I was involved with.

    All my pics have been taken with my iPhone 4S and edited using Snapseed - which I find really quick and easy to use and really brings pictures to life!

    the canary wharf picture works great as a background on the iPhone as all the icons one up nicely against it!

    thanks for the feedback :)

    it is indeed a sparrowhawk mate! it is a male!
    i feed the birds so get a lot of gold finches in my garden, which in turn attracts these awesome birds now and again!
    no kill was made that day, but i have witnessed them take down wood pigeons which are much bigger than they are lol!

    You'd not be far wrong, pink is THE colour when you're 4! I said no, could you imagine the resale value? lol

    Slightly off topic-our local school is down the hill from our house,I was talking to a neighbour when I heard this commotion,turned round to see a pigeon being torn apart by a hawk-literally came out of nowhere and destroyed it.Was amazing to see,and graphic.

    Had this fella take out a pigeon in my garden! Went out to see what was going on and it just looked at me! I felt a bit intimidated so I went back inside!

    WOW, now that's close. We have a couple of buzzards nesting nearby, but as soon as they see me with my camera, they buzz off. Maybe I should tether a pigeon down (just kidding).
