There are a number of pictures in rotation at the tops of the pages and posts on this site. I’ve included them here with a titles and some details.
It was a horrible murky day, when I went for a walk at Kenfig Burrows.
I liked the contrast between the grass covered sand dunes and the heavy industry
We had a quick stopover at Sizewell beach and I took this picture with my phone in raw (using the Open Camera app) and gave it some work afterwards in Lightroom and SilverEfex.
In the full picture there is a lovely reflection in the old dock in front of this building.
The detail was enhanced with ColorEfex.
I managed to get to the waterfront of Cardiff Bay before any boats had been out and churned up the water.
Handheld shot with little enhancement.
Did you know that the National Trust airs it’s grassed areas every spring? OK, there may be some Photoshop involved…
The day kept changing between sunshine and heavy cloud (and some heavy rain) – this was taken with a fish-eye lens and then given some work afterwards with ColorEfex.
Stood under the footbridge, taken using the panorama feature of the Google camera on my phone.
It was worth dragging a tripod and camera to Cardiff’s highest point (1,000ft/333m) for this.

The age of it was confirmed by the archeologist at the local museum

A beautiful tranquil spot on a lovely road. The weather in the distance wasn’t so good.
ColorEfex was used to enhance the dark hills
