Chelsea (London Views)

Work took me to London today (Chelsea Harbour). The fates conveniently provided a little bit of sunshine and a chance to take a few urban landscape shots between appointments. These were taken in and around Chelsea Harbour/Imperial Wharf, just off the King’s Road.

Fast Car

I took this ‘fast car’ shot a couple of weeks ago but it doesn’t really fit the normal blog posts so got put to one side. I think it warrants an airing, so here it is. The technique for taking this kind of shot is something I picked up from the excellent FotoBuzz team.

Any ideas on how fast the car is travelling?

Sunrise at Sheepcote Valley

The recent owl encounter has spurred me to more early mornings at Sheepcote Valley. So far the owl has evaded me, but the sunrises have been beautiful so here are a few shots from Wednesday and Thursday morning.

Tomorrow threatens rain so things may go quiet again for a while, but it’s been a good week!
