Simply stunning Jack x
Thanks for that mate. Me and the missus like the area very much so I get a lot of ideas from your pics.
Thanks Sandra. x
I'm glad to be of help mate, but seriously, this is a road and view, that everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime. Also, the Applecross Inn does superb seafood caught locally, (if you need any more persuading)...!
Since seeing that lovely photo of Glen Docherty @Jake 61 , I spotted it twice this week on TV ..
Who do you think you are (Paul Hollywood) and Nature Nuts with Julian Clary.
Maybe worth posting with a little info in this thread @Jake 61 .... looks a good driving road
I'll do that @Ghost, there's another thread I hadn't seen since joining the forum.
Any photos that I post on here are firstly a great drive and secondly, very photogenic.
It's only right that I should share the info.
Whitstable looking at the storm gathering over the Isle of Sheppy
Whitstable again, some boats and trailing edge of storm clouds.
Looking out at the Thames Estuary towards the North Sea with the storm over the wind farm and Maunsell forts. (Nicked by the BBC for its Weather Page).
love the image of sun rays behind the clouds
This road was used by Top Gear magazine this month for testing hot hatches.
I had another trip to Skye this week, specifically, to try and catch the sunset at a village on the West coast called Elgol. It didn't work out as I'd hoped due to low cloud. I was trying to catch the sun setting against the Cuillins but, no joy, got this one though, so it wasn't a wasted trip.
For anyone travelling there, head for Broadford on the A87 and take a left at the main car park. From there, follow the B8083 for 15 miles. The last mile down to the jetty is very steep and the B8083 is not the best of roads, worth it when you get there, as the view of the Cuillins from Elgol is fantastic.
Aurora shot from last night. Just had time to pull in and throw the camera at the tripod. What a display. (Apologies for the filthy marks on the sensor, getting cleaned tomorrow).
More tonight as well for those who have clear skies. @Ghost
Absolutely stunning Jack!!!!
We had some down our way but nothing like that, I think I need to move up there!!
Cracking shot. I've only ever seen it once and I didn't have the camera with me.
Could barely make the Aurora out,just too much light pollution.20 min drive or so and I would have been in completely dark area,but youngest has been off school ill all week and didnt want to leave missus with her.
Thanks Andy. This was by far the best display I have seen in years, dancing across the sky and changing all the time. There was an Australian guy beside us, who had never seen the Aurora before and the gasps and noises coming out of him was as impressive as the light show...!
Thanks Phil. I always check the Ovation website before I go out, just to make sure it's worth it.
This was so bright that the lights further down didn't affect the shot too much.
Fantastic photo @Jake 61 iv not seen the Aurora before, and I think if I did I be making more gasps and noises than the Australian guy lol
I think @Nilz would like to see this too
Thanks @Ghost I did try and tag @Nilz but it didn't work and I removed it.
I'm keeping an eye on the Auroral Oval, http://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/auroral-activity/auroral-oval website for what's happening tonight but I don't expect to see much better than last week for a long time to come, it was spectacular.
Amazing pictures @Jake 61 and @Ghost, I would love to see the northern lights but I don't think that will ever happen in Birmingham!!
Thanks @Nilz. I suppose the trade off for me is scraping frost and ice off the windscreen for the last two mornings, where you lads get more temperate weather. Starting to have a right winter feel at nights now, hence the good light shows.
The Dovecote by Victor Lopes, on Flickr
Some excellent pictures here! Thought I'd give this thread a wee bump and add some of mine
I recognise those places, and you have captured them beautifully.
Thats a Stunner
Cracking images Clone!!..
Found another of mine from a shoot at Monikie Country Park just outside Dundee wee while ago.
Stunning @Clone #340
@AndyB-S3 you know if that's a planet, jupiter maybe? nice pic
First time i've picked the camera up for ages.
Here are a couple taken in the past week or two.
Church yard at Ripley North Yorkshire.
And one of the A3
Bring on the clouds....
La Palma caldera ...and Yes, those are clouds floating across the pictures at eye level.
More from La Palma, Canaries.
Impressive root system...
A wider view...

Some stunning inages there mate! Also just had a look on your Flickr page. Awesome!! Topnotch photos bud.
How do you find the Sig 150-600? Have been thinking on getting a big zoom like this for a while? !
The Sigma??? I'm possibly the wrong (or maybe right) person to ask...
They're ****** dreadful! Or at least mine was. Subjects under 15 meters are fine and it'll produce a nice sharp images, past that distance, good luck! Mine was eventually sent back to Sigma, the couldn't find a fault but recalibrated it, which made zero difference.
I was told from the camera shop that 'this is to be expected from such a lens', I called BS and demanded my money back.
I think Sigma have a big problem with quality control.
I put the extra towards the Canon 100-400 Mk2, which was money well spent, it's head and shoulders better than the Sigma.
Couple of pics of recent trip to Iceland... first time I've seen Northern Lights, stunning.... not a bad shot for a £250 point and shoot camera I thought.
Nice, lived in Scotland all my life, travel north regularly but I've still never seen them
Know i'm lucky to have seen them on first attempt. Mate of mine has been 4 times to Iceland and never seen them....
You have to keep an eye on sites like Auroral Oval, to see when the activity makes it worth going out and standing in the cold. It's always worth it by the way. https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/auroral-activity/auroral-oval
Caught this one last month on the way home from work. There was no need to check activity, it just fired up and went haywire.
A little walk to Sycamore Gap on Saturday...
