Show us your great photos (2019)

A new year, a new photography thread! Thanks to everyone who's participated in these threads, whether as a photographic contributor, a commenter, or as someone who just pops in from time to time to admire the latest offerings. The Soul Source photography thread now enters its sixth year (well, technically it started life in April of 2013, but who cares?), which I think is amazing.

As I mentioned in the last post of the 2018 thread, its longevity is entirely down to you and your continued involvement, so thank you one and all for making this a real highlight for so long. Cheers, and here's to another photo-filled year!

Happy New Year to you all ... here is one from the first day of the new year, a Heron posing in front of the hide, odd this as usually they will take flight at the slightest movement.

There are so many fans of Gil Scott - HERON on this thread… 😀

Here's another photo of my wife on an impressive landscape on catalonian prepyrinaican mountains:

Sorry for some photos with poor quality that are from the 80's, 90's by analogical cameras and after scanned on a middle resolution.

Fantastic! Specially the one of the krestel. Where I lives there's a Krestel that every day is above the building next to the mine. Frequently I can see krestels, buzzards, Bonelli's eagles and with a bit of luck some astors or any "Accipiter nisus" (I think is "Sparrow hook"…?). There was a time that I makes some acceptable photo with my analogic Zenith camera with 50 mm objective Helios… (some photo of Gypaëtus barbatus, Neophron percnopterus,…) but the real great photographer of birds I knows is a long time friend (both of us formed an ornitologic group); he got a great equipment (a Buchlander with 250mm zoom and duplicator in the late 70's!!) and have some books published some with photos by him and illustrations by me (I'm a great fan of some great bird illustrators in the UK as Terence Lambert and some spanish as Olegario del Junco). A great salute from Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain).

Here's another slot canyon on Aragon Prepyrinaican mountains:

Cheers Steve, been using a Sony Cybershot bridge camera with x35 zoom, looking at a Panasonic Lumix with x60 zoom. I've usually got 3 dogs in tow so need something compact but want to get a bit closer and in my price range lol.

Thank you, Lucky to have a variety of birds close to where I live. I Like to take a few photos when I walk our dogs, two hobbies in one. Great to see all the different photos on here.

I shoot with Canon as you know but the lumix gets good reviews and so does the fuji bridge cameras. Endless choice mate. Be interested to hear your choice

Happy new year to you all. Some great photo's already. Love the pointing finger of the Starling Murmuration , brilliant Steve :thumbup:

I had a wander over Helvellyn and a few more fells on New Years Day, and what a day. More like spring than winter 🙂

1st one is a Brocken Spectre on Striding Edge, the 2nd is looking back on a clear Striding Edge with a distant Ullswater in the background and the 3rd is looking over to the Western Fell ranges from my lunch spot on Dollywagon Pike 🙂

Right place and all that 🙂 Was hoping it to be all clear, then wishing for an inversion but I suppose a spectre or four will have to do 🙂

Only ever seen one inversion that was  above Pistell Ryhdar waterfalls but the mist/ clouds came down and met it, sat it out for 30 mins then it cleared to blue skies as if nothing had happened

I also think is a buzzard. Here in Spain buzzards (Buteo buteo, "ratonero común" on spanish and "aligot" in catalonian idiom) usually have the bellow parts more clear but there's also some ones who come from North Europe during the winter and are shadily colored.

Heres's my sons some years ago, Whe lives next to the "Costa daurada" but prefers a bath on the river than on the beach:

Almost half way through January already and I'm only now posting up the "most liked" photo for last month. That honour goes to @Winsford Soul for his classic capture of a robin. Congratulation, and well done! 👍📸👌

Great picture Steve , the Robin looks in immaculate condition , the one that comes in to my garden looks a dirty chap  his/her white plumage is filthy, it will use the feeders and is well fed but it seems adverse to using the bird bath.

They do look very small to be fair....gazebolets...baby ones. Although, for me, I think I would have called them summerhouses or just "posh sheds". It's a lovely photo though, really makes you want to get outside and take in the air. God, I sound like my grandad. Actually, speaking of grandads and sheds. I'll post a photo of his shed later. It really should have been put on the Listed register for sheds.

And here is my late grandad's "gazebo", specially constructed out of....anything .... Story goes, in high winds, bits of it would fly off into other people's gardens and the following day the neighbours would happily return them so that grandad could rebuild it.  It wasn't joined together, just constructed of strategically placed pieces of wood, corrugated sheeting and odds and sods, to shelter his pride and joy. What a guy. God bless you Grandad.
