At least the bad weather didn't dampen your creativity, excellent shots every one.

I like them all, particularly the last four.

You go away for a couple of days and what happens? MarkLJ returns to the Forum. All is now well with the world

Typically excellent landscapes, and the mono shots stunning.

4, 5 and 6 are standouts for me.

Mark - hopefully you'll find time to keep posting here. And I hope your new photography teaching thing is going well. Looks great/tempting!

Some of my vaguely better stuff

2,3, and onwards are my Favs. Pigeon shooting days. From the pigeon ones there is a good amount of depth in the last B&W Landscapes. The pigeon ones being a nice open field freshly cut.

Thank you. Its not something I was planning to get into just yet although it had been something I was thinking about long term. However, I was approached by a local woman who was already running courses. She is undergoing treatment for cancer and I said I would help out and do what I could. Its as much taking folk out and about as anything. I know all sorts of spots to go and once I started talking about my thoughts on landscape photography I realised that I had quite firm opinions about a lot of things to do with it. I did get told of as the courses are normally 8am for 8 hours. I was picking folk up before dawn and going out for 12-14 hours.

you have a great eye for light and composition Mark, those photos belong to some landscape photography magazine really....very inspiring

They are all outstandingly good, but the boat-house study has a subtle and special beauty

I must say that sheer class and quality pervades every one of these images, if I ever produce one anything like I will be well chuffed

A fabulous set

thanks for the new comments. A bit of a thread resurrection there

To be honest due to my father being a bit poorly I haven't managed to get out much at all. Couple of days away using the Nikon and that was it. Just getting back to using the Pentax and hopefully a day out with it tomorrow.

One of the 'damp' shots re-processed in colour -

Wall Holm in colour by Mark Littlejohn, on Flickr

And another one not previously seen before. I have a similar shot on my flickr stream but when I was editing the folder on my HDD the other day I looked at this one and preferred it.

#1 is a terrific version of this already spectacular image of yours, mark. - the darker tones on the island really enhance the composition.

#2 ain't half bad either!

Good to see you back on here. I can sympathise with 'ailing parent syndrome'

I was due to be in the North east with three mates doing a weekend of coastal stuff but had to cancel again due to the old lad collapsing. Full time care home is beckoning which is probably going to be for the best.

Every shot very pleasing.
Best wishes,
