Photo Thursday: 8th Sept 2011

September 8, 2011

I thought that I would do a series of weekly posts on a Thursday highlighting my picks of people, like myself, selling prints of their photographs on etsy.com and folksy.com, so that it may highlight some of the good photographers on both sites as I don’t think they give enough attention to this category.
So here’s number 3 in the series, on the theme of Flora and Fauna:

Bristol Balloon Fiesta

August 20, 2011

Nightglow

Nightglow

I’d usually write a blog post the day after I’ve been somewhere, but this last week has been hard and very long for me! So here it is – a week later….

I decided at pretty much the last minute to go to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Europe’s largest annual Hot Air Balloon Event according to their website. I can see why! There are mass balloon launches – the one I saw had 100 balloons taking to the sky and loads of other things going on.

Although thinking about it now, most of the other things going on weren’t very ‘balloony’. Yeah, ok there are ballon launches every day but there are 2 a day. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. In between times, there aint a lot going on. Still, it was a decent day out although I’d recommend getting there about 3-4ish on the Saturday. You aren’t left hanging around for hours with not a lot to do. But it’s a free event, you just need to pay for the parking so you can’t complain too much and judging by the amount of people that turned up, it’s very popular!

I think possibly the best event is the “infamous nightglow” whereby they tether the balloons and turn their burners on to music. Effectively they’re creating the effect of flashing, coloured Christmas lights – but it still looked pretty cool. It also offered me the chance to take the photograph above and others which I shall make available in the usual outlets. Links are on the right.

As an afterthought, hot air ballooning is not without its dangers as several crashed during the mass launch and one sleeping family had one hell of wake-up call!!

Whitby Abbey

Whitby Abbey

Having spent a week in Whitby, I can honestly say I’m more tired now than I was a week ago! I had completely forgotten how steep the hills/steps/etc. were around Whitby, particularly Robin Hood’s Bay. My legs are like dead weights now and I’ve been round a car boot sale this morning, so this evening I’ll put my feet up. It was a shame about the weather at the beginning of the week, but such is the nature of the British weather, also I’m glad I was where I was because I’ve had reports that it’s been scorching for everyone else!

Sorry for the lack of tweets during the week, I really didn’t have time to do any due to me trying to pack too much into one week. I think at least 10 days is necessary to have the full Whitby and surrounding areas experience. Having listed some things to do in Whitby in a previous post, I discovered some more things to do. You can go for a trip round the bay on the Endeavour, go on a vintage 50’s bus to Goathland where they filmed heartbeat, go on a bus tour round Whitby and take a ride on a steam powered coach. There is also Whitby Regatta next week too.

I shall be making prints available over the coming few weeks in the usual places. Keep an eye on twitter for when they become available.

The plight of the XH558

July 19, 2011

Vulcan XH558

Vulcan XH558

The Avro Vulcan XH558 is the last remaining, complete and at the time of writing, flying Vulcan in the world.

I have been to many airshows as a child with my Dad and Grandpa to see this magnificent and, well to be honest awesome aircraft display. That is until the mid/late 1990’s when the RAF decomissioned them and I was there at the last airshow we always went to and saw it’s last flight there, where they sprayed “Goodbye” (I think, I was about 10 at the time) on the bomb doors and that was that….. Until 2010, where I was there at RAF Waddington for the first airshow it did there after a false start the year before.

Over the last decade or so, it has been restored by the folks at vulcantothesky.org with public donations, it is not government funded unlike some other displays, like the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight for example. The Vulcan has flown sucessfully for the last few years, however I was saddened to learn that they needed £350,000 by 31st July to keep it in the air.

With this in mind, I decided do my part and rifle through some of my photographs of the Vulcan in action, which are available to buy in the usual outlets (links on the right) and I will also donate 20% of all proceeds directly to them.
