Favourite Photos in September

Recommended Posts

I'll kick this off with a photo-shoot I did with my dad riding a bike overlooking Praia do Guincho, Portugal. What's your favourite for the month?

A common sight now, an Asian couple having a pre-wedding photography session in London (I expect in other touristy cities too). Shame the Palace of Westminster is in scaffolding.

I don't take many flower shots (don't have particularly good macro lenses to do them justice) so quite pleased with some I took the other day.

After having my view of the 'money shot' (winner celebrating on crossing the line) blocked, catching some fans reacting to their idol helped to get the blood pressure down.

I just love this pic, especially as a few seconds later she fell into the puddle and screamed for about 5 minutes! :lol::lol::lol:

We took the grandson to the Farne Islands in Northumberland and were blessed with glorious sunshine. The photo shows visitors returning to Billy Shiel's boat Glad Tidings moored at the Inner Farne.

I met this lovely dog called Frank when I visited Tantallon Castle yesterday. He let me take his photo.

As a lover of thunder and lightning, I have been disappointed this year. Despite record heat and high humidity (humidex of 47C a couple of times) with really heavy and threatening clouds, we had no storms here in Quebec. Imagine my joy then, when we went back to Gaspesie for a week, to see this cloud with us in the cross-hairs. I managed to get the tent up  in record time, then me and my boy legged it to grab some shots.a-panorama-og-golden-evening-light-and-a-dramatic-summer-storm-reflected-in-the-lagoon-at-carleton-in-gaspesie-quebec-canada-PK8C7F.jpg

 

I also got this one below which I put on a couple of arty-farty sites.

The rain and lightning did not disappoint. I was glad I got the tent up in time, or I would have had an uncomfortable exchange of opinions with The Leader of the Opposition.

The Sherwood Pines 10k run on a very hot day. Shows the shear desperation in the runners face to take have a drink.

I love finding these tiny (6-8mm) shrimps which are commensal on Sea Stars.

Thanks Andy, pleased with the front page.  I'm not sure it would catch on as a baby cot, maybe a tad expensive :lol:
