Today we went on a "Dolphin Safari" out in the Gibraltar Straits, what an amazing experience, to see these wild dolphins in their natural habitat as opposed to zoos & animal parks was absolutely amazing. Really worthwhile and enjoyable afternoon in a small yet fast boat on the open sea. Although we saw around 30 dolphins of 3 types, they were extremely hard to photograph, this being one of my best.

Also the views back towards the rock of Gibraltar to the rear with the Spanish coast to the left and the Moroccan coast to our right really did make this a special place to be, the views were awesome from sea.

i got my lens back today as it has been away to be repaired as i dropped it :-( cost a chuffing fortune to get it done, but soooooo glad i got her back. For those in the know the canon 70-200mm F2,8 L IS lens is an amazing piece of glass.

A huge blue tit painted on the wall of an older building down the back streets just off piccadilly in Manchester.

To give you an idea how big this is, its approx 70 red house bricks from top of the birds head to the bottom of its belly.

rather interesting sign spotted on short street in Manchester city centre

A lot of range here. Nice to see some photos of another part of Spain from the one I live in! I like the the last b/w - although surprised that no has added 'United' or 'City'!!
Thanks for sharing, I'll be sure to follow your posts.

This photo just about sums up southern snowdonia today, very wet, misty & miserable.

The start of Minffordd path & cader idris SHOULD be visible behind this tree line, however big the mountain is, we cant see it today

Good strong set of images in this thread. I really like them.

The wine glass with food colouring going into has to be one of my favourites. It played with my eyes a bit, as to start with I didn't realise the water level wasn't as straight as it seemed!

Keep up the good work.

THE seaside resort of Harlech, famous for its castle, now has a new tourist attraction - Dewi the Dragon.

The spectacular metal Welsh dragon was yesterday bolted in to his new home at Min-y-Don Holiday Home and Touring Park below the historic castle in Gwynedd.

The 16-foot long, 11ft high and 10ft wide metal dragon guards the entrance to the award-winning five star park.
Park owner Tony Bywater of Salop leisure commissioned Dewi from Marche Studios at Ford, near Shrewsbury for an un-named sum. It took 732 hours to be crafted and comprises 2,500 scales welded on to a frame

Thanks Matt,

Hes is a great dog, when i got him when he was about 8 weeks old i knew nothing about dogs, keeping and training them, but he's unbelievable clever, we kinda trained each other as he grew up he goes to sleep, east spiders & he even pee's on my demand what more could i ask for lol......... hes so loving (which i was told male dogs are not :-$) and loyal its crazy, hes has never needed a lead even when around local town or out on walks he walks nice and calmly at my side have never known a dog like it. He came from an animal sanctuary down mid Wales way :)
