I am the Walrus – Andrew Pringle

Taken from zodiac during visit to Spitsbergen last year. It was an over cast day so the textures and details within the walrus leant this image to an impact monochrome capture.

Waiting for the signal – Andrew Pringle

Waiting for the signal.

This photo was taken just outside Didcot station as the driver and fireman waited for the points to change. I was a long way off so used my 100 ñ 400mm lens to take this image. This helped as they were unaware of me as I captured a moment from a bygone age.

Arctic Terns – Duncan Cooke

This is an old image taken with my first DLSR, Canon 400 and kit lens,and does have some quality issues, but I really like the composition of the two birds interaction.

In the colour version the quality problems are more obvious, but most of those are lost in the conversion to B/W.

Acorns – Duncan Cooke

Autumn produces some great colours and that’s what I tried to capture with this image.

Using a tripod allowed a higher f stop and greater depth of field and meant a slow shutter speed wasn’t a problem.

Aldingham sunset fantasy – James Marsden

The sunrise was taken at Aldingham Beach.

I have used photoshop to add the tree and the water using the software and a tree used in a old picture i had taken to create the shot.

Great Gable – Duncan Cooke

Wasdale, one of my favourite places in the Lake District.

Marc Chagall’s illuminated exhibition – Baux de Provence France that I visited on my holiday to Provence in summer of 2016.

The exhibition lasts about 30 minutes and is set to music. It was a spectacular experience that was a highlight of our holiday.
