@FishyFish - I really like the framing of "Nice for the time of year" and the good range of tones
Thanks Chris. It was the people sat on the breakwater at the bottom of the frame with the beach receding to the rides in the background that first attracted me, and then I waited until the other groups of people on the beach were nicely seperated. I was lucky to have nice light to cast the shadows and add some contrast too though - it probably wouldn't have worked as well had it been overcast.

I'd run out of film in my F80, so it was good to have the Sure Shot in my poket to grab a few extra shots that I'd otherwise have missed.

All these rooftops and not a cat in sight!!

Unbelievable, as Sospel is possibly resident to more cats than people, I for one have three, two of which are always sat out on a rooftop , the third, well he has vertigo! Straight up, he is scared s***less of heights ( max of about 4 ft) …..I'm sure he's related to "Tigger" ( Winnie the Pooh):LOL:

Aah, pesky critters! I've got an excuse as it was the Yashicamat and it was on the taking lens, rather than the viewing lens! ;)

Last one from me for the time being ( sigh of relief from all the other filmies!! lol)

This shows a considerable landslide ( that continues to give way) which happened nearly a year ago.

It's just a few hundred yards from where I live on the opposite side of the river.

It doesn't directly affect me, however the residents of "Beroulf" ( another district on the outskirts of Sospel) are completely cut off as the slide took out the one and only access road.
Their vehicles were airlifted out and allocated a temporary parking area on the main road this side of the river leading into the village.
Nonetheless it involves a considerable steep climb / descent for the residents to get to / from their homes.
An offer was made to evacuate them and temporarily rehome them elsewhere but they have all refused and choose to stay put and " deal with the inconvenience)
As for fuel for oil burners or wood fired stoves, some supplies are air lifted in by helicopter , in the same way any emergency services required have to be done in the same manner.
As for the reconstruction of the access road. It looks unlikely that it will be possible as the ground is now simply too unstable.
Alternative ideas have been put forward including building a road down to the river and bridging it acroos the the main Sospel - Moulinet road.
That is probably the only logical answer tbh but these decissions are long winded…...even more so in France!!!:LOL:

I too have an excuse ...mine was taken on the M4 ( rangefinder) so no chance noticing the cretin….in fact I don't know for sure that he didn't travel home with me!:runaway::LOL:

A simple shot which I really like. Kodak Clolour plus 200 Commi Cosmic 35m Whitby. The cows worried me a little as on the way out as (this is the return journey) they were right next to the footpath which in return was on the cliff edge, the last time I took a photo in a field of cows four of them charged me flat out and I had to dive under the barbed wire fence, I didn't fancy going over the edge !

Having been bought a copy of the Don MuCullin book The Landscape for Christmas, I wanted to have a go his very moody/dark landscape style of photography.

These were taken on New Years day this year at Littlehampton beach. My trusty Nikon F5 50mm f1.8 & a ND6 & Red filter in front of XP2...

H'mm Nige people moan that HP5 is grainy but your shots don't show it :confused:
It’s there if you zoom in, especially in the lower detail areas, but it’s not too intrusive. Maybe it’s the processing that Peak Imaging do - using Kodak Xtol. The new scanner shows the grain more than the V550 did too.

I did my first portrait session recently with someone who wasn't a model or a at a wedding. A young Architect from London travelled up to Liverpool to let me make some portraits of her. :)

Pentax 67ii & Kodak Portra 400

Fabulous shot, wonderful colours and perfect depth of field for me, I really need to dig out my 67. What lens did you have on it?

Likewise.

Any other RB lenses that you can vouch for?
I have the 50, 65, 127 & 180. As Brian says, the 180 is fab for portraits (but I lol at my capability to focus correctly!) and the others are all really good too. Just keeping an eye out for a 90 to complete what I need.

And to contribute to the thread... Taken on my M3 at the Photography Show. Ilford Delta 3200.

Wonderful set of three and it just shows the varied natural light that we do find on our fabulous planet,but, I am sure someone will be along talking about colour casts,do what I do and ignore them. I am really taken with the subtle tone and tranquillity of #1 a cracking good photograph.(y):film:
