    This way to

    This hand was carved by one of the local Artists as a way marker to the Ardfern arts festival
    2 years ago. It has become the norm when giving directions to Ardfern to say drive to the hand and follow the direction it points.

    This way to

    Re: This way to

    Does it have to be a jet?

    Messed up a bit on this photo. Clipped the right wing and stopped the propellor so I had to do a bit of rebuilding. Not sure that I've got it exact yet.

    How about 2 wheels next . . .

    They fly faster than some jets, so close enough!

    PS: Do you need some help getting these to display inline?

    Two Wheels .. entrance to the reserve wherein is found "the Billabong" of Waltzing Matilda fame.
    I first passed these wheels in 1960.. at that time, all spokes on both wheels were intact.
    They haven't been removed by termites!

    Re: This way to

    Hi Chris,

    A touch of irony, as my photo was taken about 50 yards from many ducks!

    Anyway, I know a good way to fix this problem ... (I'm sure I said ducks in my post!) ...

    A spectacular series of cascades races down 800 Mtrs of mountainside, to this fabulous spread, impossible to convey adequately without the sound here.


    How about marine life?

    thats a gorgeous bit of water rrox, and especially pleased to see it taken at a speed so it still looks like water not spilt milk.

    Does this count as marine life? Think it spends as much time in the water as out

    Re: This way to

    Hmmm ... I s'pose if a Spitfire (??) is "close enough" to a jet plane......
    This great action shot fits the bill for marine life.
    I notice you've stopped the water as well; I do feel too much is made of arranging a "dreamy"look for water.

    Where to next?

    Yes it is (see post #3), and appropriately enough, originally a photo reconnaissance version!

    Part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, it's about 2/3s down this page.

    I just love the sound of these things (well, technically the Merlin engine), they give me goose bumps everytime I hear them, even on TV if the sound HiQ enough to get the bass out.

    Other pics are good too; esp. ducks, waterfall and surfer!

    Cheers,

    Re: This way to

    It's becoming difficult to keep up with the traffic in here! A good buzz, just the same.

    RE #16 I like the shadow effect on the path Chris .. might even to make the subject with contrast adjustment, if that's the correct language

    #17 Lovely shot of this alert animal .. the lighting's perfect, isn't it?

    #18 Sorry, the lizard (?) looks a little damp but it't really difficult to get a good exposure/composition in aquariums
