By the Churchyard, Leek, Staffordshire
4 stars
Mobscooter(7th December 2019)

It certainly gives an impression of monochrome but the green mossy top of the wall gives the game away. A very effective shot - well presented, thankyou Mr. Tooth.

Looking at the bridge
4 stars
Mobscooter(30th November 2019)

Nice composure of effects caught Steve. The bridge and river stumps line up well and the orange and blue contrast beautifully. The symmetry works very well.

Mobscooter(16th November 2019)

A superb shot Pat. The detail is wonderfully sharp, especialy in the wings. The colour is so good too. Really pleasing.

Budleigh pied wagtail
Mobscooter(13th November 2019)

They are caged pebbles off the beach that are wire box constructions tied together and forming a wall. There are quite a few pictures showing them in the B.S. Gallery - look for shots pointing east or west containing the beach huts. Martyn

St. Paul's Cathedral
Mobscooter(13th November 2019)

It's a ramp down from the top deck to the lower deck servicing the shops on the southern bank of the Thames. So it's a way from walking along the Millennium bridge and down to the next level and shops.

Was the car a Golf, Peggy? It looks like the sculpture is holding a big golf ball. Nice study of colours at any rate.

Lichfield
Mobscooter(5th November 2019)

Nicely framed by the trees.

A damp day but still a lovely shot Paul.

Lowestoft

Mobscooter(26th October 2019)

Great set of shots. I love how the gull on the dock seems unmoved despite the ship getting nearer.

Rain Clouds over The Roaches near Upper Hulme, Staffordshire Moorlands
4 stars
Mobscooter(26th October 2019)

I agree with Peggy, the picture is sharp and clear but certainly gives the impression of impending rain.

Hideeee
Mobscooter(21st October 2019)

Sorry if it offends, Paul. See the next picture called "Boo". I can't be serious all the time and at least it made me smile. :-)

Brixham Harbour

Mobscooter(14th October 2019)

Wonderful set of pictures Paul. The colours are really lively and the shots look very crisp.

New Tavern Fort, Gravesend
4 stars
Mobscooter(13th October 2019)

What a pleasant combination of Gravesend pictures, Paul. I have never visited that part of Kent. Is there any noteworthy reason for its name?

Aldeburgh
3 stars
Mobscooter(15th September 2019)

Very good shot, Peggy - but where's the bus stop? The red and blue certainly contrast well.

Aldeburgh

Mobscooter(15th September 2019)

I do like how you've framed this shot with the side reveals.

Deer in Tatton Park
4 stars
Mobscooter(15th September 2019)

Brilliant set of shots, Myra, superb colours. Do you know, dear, it looks a superb place to hold a stag party?

Flixton
3 stars
Mobscooter(12th September 2019)

Another geat shot with lots of colour. That is a Peel P50, made in the Isle of Man between 1962 and 1965. Martyn

Peterborough Cathedral
4 stars
Mobscooter(12th September 2019)

Very good, Peggy. You captured it very nearly centrally between the pillars. Peterborough recently had a moon in the same postion made from NASA photographs. Martyn

Lands End
3 stars
Mobscooter(2nd September 2019)

Are the two cottage pictures of neighbouring cottage groups? Their surrounding stone walls look quite similar - as do their foundation boards! I had to look twice as they are very well detailed.

Enjoying the view - Minehead seafront
5 stars
Mobscooter(14th August 2019)

You have got a good portfolio of very impressive shots of Minehead, PoE. It's intriguing for me to see them. In 1970 my wife and I went from Sheffield to Mevagissey on my Triumph and we tried without success to get B&B in Minehead. That's the only time I've ever been and now I can see what I missed. Thank you for posting these impressive shots.

Taunton
4 stars
Mobscooter(13th August 2019)

Good one PoE. I love how the church tower seems to appear over the rooftops - sort of "I spire, with my little tower...."

Conygar Tower in the distance, near Minehead, Somerset

Mobscooter(13th August 2019)

Good picture spoiled by telephone cables, they should banned or a special filter to dispose of them.

Watchful Seagulls
4 stars
Mobscooter(13th August 2019)

Top left hand corner and dead centre. There are approx. 19 individuals in that shot also. Edward would say it's overpeopled not overexposed!

Window in St. Botolph's Church, Swyncombe
5 stars
Mobscooter(8th August 2019)

I was unaware of the technicality of the shot and thank you for explaining things. I see that it is quite elevated to centre top of two taller side windows. I ament my comment and praise your expertize, Edward. That sort of shot is not one that I would aspire to achieve.

Window in St. Botolph's Church, Swyncombe

Mobscooter(7th August 2019)

Very good Edward. When I take stained glass window shots mine come out over or under exposed each time. Being picky, I would have preferred to see what is holding the glass in place though.

'On the Turn' Moor Lane Grassington
4 stars
Mobscooter(7th August 2019)

You have taken a very good picture here, the look of that lane is inviting me to go and see what's round the corners. Smashing and exciting.

Budleigh blue plaque
Mobscooter(2nd August 2019)

No need to apologise, Edward, you made a fair comment. Had I moved further down the street I could have paused to take a more full frontal shot - but then I would lose most of the right cliff/sea view. We live and learn all the time. No offence taken.

Budleigh blue plaque
Mobscooter(2nd August 2019)

Thanks for the comment, Edward. However, the "big item of street furniture in the lower left of the frame" is in fact the right hand gatepost of an access drive to the property next door. From the angle I was sat in my mobility scooter and inability to reposition because of parked cars, it would have meant cutting out the left of the white house.

Cape Cornwall Chimney

Mobscooter(1st August 2019)

Very, very nice and pleasant. Clear colours, sharp focus, well composed. Congratulations Peter.

Fields on the road to Cuddesdon

Mobscooter(31st July 2019)

Very good Poe. That farmer has his work cut out to gather that crop. Good depth of field.

Beyond
4 stars
Mobscooter(31st July 2019)

It was probably built to be photographed which may explain how it appears to be monochrome behind the colour of the boat. It certainly makes you look and thanks for the intrigue.

Walmer Castle
5 stars
Mobscooter(29th July 2019)

What a lovely set of shots, Paul. With the blue skies and glorious colour ranges it must have been warmer at Walmer than elsewhere. I still marvel at the lack of "lookenpeeper" people in your views.

Bodian Barbican
Mobscooter(29th July 2019)

Thanks for your compliments, Pat.

Bodiam Castle Postern Gate
Mobscooter(28th July 2019)

Thankyou for yor comments, Edward. It was truly a sunny day and in this shot the sun was fortunately not directly in front of me.

I like the kaleidoscope of different colours in your recent set of shots, Dawn. Wouldn't England be dull if there were no seasonal changes?

St. John the Baptist Church , Membury, Devon
3 stars
Mobscooter(13th July 2019)

What a good shot. Were you up the tree to get the angle right?

Misty Middleton-in-Teesdale
Mobscooter(12th July 2019)

Thanks for the comment, Poe. As you can see, it was taken on Boxing Day - I was on my motorbike going to meet fellow riders at the Boxing Day venue at High Force. It certainly was a tad chilly, that I can remember, but worth it.

A day at the coast.

This brings back a few memories. I've had a few good visits to the whitewashed King's Arms seen on the harbour wall. Thanks Lesley, nice shot.

Chilham Castle
3 stars
Mobscooter(10th July 2019)

Isn't PoE wonderful. Isaw these pictures and thought ar first there was a spelling mistake. I'd hear of Chillingham Castle but I didn't even know of Chilham Castle. Thank you for a lovely set of pictures, Paul, which show me how much I am missing. You have a wonderful series here illustrating Chilham.

Thames Lido, Reading
4 stars
Mobscooter(3rd July 2019)

I was going to discount this picture, Edward, but then I read your description. What a loss to Reading its demolition would have been. I think it's vital that history, not necessarily Edwardian but any history, must be retained so future generations can enjoy the buildings and look at them too.

Aldeburgh beach
3 stars
Mobscooter(3rd July 2019)

A nice scene that is quite like Budleigh Salterton with pebbles, boats and sea. Even the plants look similar.

Kew Gardens
4 stars
Mobscooter(3rd July 2019)

I agree with you Edward, the picture certainly catches the eye and makes you think. A nice shot, Chris.

The Gate House, Polesden Lacy
5 stars
Mobscooter(23rd June 2019)

What a splendid view of Polesden Lacy Paul. That set of pictures was a wonderful display of both gardens and accomplished photography. Still can't see many people in your shots! I don't know how you manage to make them disappear.

Millennium bridge

Mobscooter(15th June 2019)

In the blink of an eye, obviously by a star pupil!

Eynsford

Mobscooter(15th June 2019)

Smashing shot, Paul. Looks good enough for a paddle.

The seagull

Mobscooter(14th June 2019)

Very catching panorama. I bet you get good phone recption up there as well.

Poppies

Mobscooter(14th June 2019)

Very colourful and so near D-day rememberances.

Rain Shower over Leek, Staffordshire Moorlands
4 stars
Mobscooter(14th June 2019)

Lovelly shot. I like the bursts of rain. Leek seems aptly named!

Storm clouds over the Great Tower at Greys Court
5 stars
Mobscooter(12th June 2019)

That's a really clever picture having the sun from behind lighting the foreground and the sky well contrasted by the dark clouds. As Edward says all it needs is a flash of lightning.

Beneath a Crimson Sky - Saltburn-by-the-Sea

Mobscooter(12th June 2019)

Colourful sky, Cass. I've actually had a swim under that pier - many years ago.

Scenic view near Kettlewell, Yorkshire
4 stars
Mobscooter(12th June 2019)

Lush green fields. trees, crags and cloud scudded sky. What a lovely Yorkshire shot. Put the kettle-well on and we'll all have a cup of tea.

HMS Belfast
Mobscooter(12th June 2019)

I am sorry for misleading you all. The ship was used as Reception for my daughter's wedding, not as the church.

Castle Acre Priory
4 stars
Mobscooter(10th June 2019)

That's amazing. It gives me the impression of looking through a telscope.

Sundown clouds
Mobscooter(9th June 2019)

Glad you like it Cass. Thanks for the comment. We Geordies knaa wot we lyke man, divvent wi?

Sidmouth gate
Mobscooter(9th June 2019)

That's right, Edward. I set the exposure for the brightness through the arch, which made the inside wall of the arch very shaded otherwise you see the wall but not the view.

Audley End
4 stars
Mobscooter(5th June 2019)

Beautiful, Paul. The colours look stunning together with the composition. How do you get rid of the public from your photos?

Budleigh's colourful weeds
Mobscooter(25th May 2019)

Thank you very much. It fits the description perectly according to my wild flower book definition. It also says it's part of the Bugloss family.

Wisteria in bloom at Greys Court
Mobscooter(11th May 2019)

Wonderful. It looks as if the wisteria has been knitted into a scarf with big needles.

Canada goose at Ottermouth
Mobscooter(31st March 2019)

Thank you poe and thank you Edward. As you can see from the EXIF the shot was taken in 2013 with my first DSLR Canon and exposure/timing/aperture were left quite automatic back then.
