Blimey! left the midlands with a temperature of 23 deg C and arrived at Chapel St Leonards (nr Skeggy) and I'm sure there was a 10 deg drop plus the wind chill factor of another 10, so visits to the beach were in stints of seconds before frost bite set in. This image is one taken during those brief stints where my fingers still worked and either the sand or sea spray wasn't attempting to take my skin off my bones.

I was expecting a bit more scenery than I actually got, you know some dunes, maybe some rocks ....... there was bugger all, nadda nowt ! Ah well the kids and the dog loved it..... and have arrived back in time to see the wedding, that is if the telly works as I haven't checked it yet.

A yellow moon

Did anyone see the moon the other night I did it was coloured yellow from the sand dust blown over from the Sahara.

I can feel a werewolf image coming on?

Another Pilot + Bi-plane

Had another go at the Pilot piccy, this time with Pete's idea of a plane added (from Filey) and a hard light blending layer.

The Merry Go Round

Here's a slice of life ...... the merry go round, the next instalment could be called ' The Rat Race'

It's the merry go round from Bristol with a bit of Whitby sky in there for good measure, I just wished I'd asked him to put the lights on!

The Pilot

I have been working on this image for a few days now, this is one taken from the Whitby Goth weekend, this girl obviously dressed as a 20s Pilot caught my eye, loved the red hair and rich colours of her clothing and I thought she would be a great base image for the kind of thing I wanted to work on, which was a very dark and moody style almost comic book/ Indiana Jones kind of thing. I saw here at the start of the day and wished I had taken more pictures of her, I kept looking for her throughout the rest of the day but never had the opportunity again when the lighting had been better.

I havent used any flash in this image its all Photoshop.... all 14 layers of it,  it was taken with a Canon 5D MKII, and 17-40mm Canon L series wide angle lens

anyway here it is ..... some feedback would be appreciated.
