    Nice shot. I hope you don't mind that I added a blue sky.

    This was taken at Strumble Head in Pembrokeshire, South West Wales last week with my D70 and some 28mm lens. I hope that the 35mm slides (with more wide angle) will come out better.

    A beautiful composition (as always). I was just in the UK last week, but unfortunately had little chance to shoot there except a few in Manchester near the hotel.

    Looks like the 28 (Nikkor?) is a tad soft. What was the aperture setting?

    You missed out if you were stuck in Manchester, there are some nice sights, but you need to get out of the city.

    Sunny 16 rules applied, the problem was shooting straight into the wind, it was enough fun trying to stand up.
    The full sized shot shows a sharp lighthouse, but everything else that wasn't set in concrete wasn't still enough for the slowish speed.
    I have a feeling the Velvia shots may show even more movement.
    All the best, Paul.

    Actually I stayed at the Manchester Moat Hotel next to Styal Estate. A real nice area, but unfortunately it was pretty dark when I had a chance to walk the small river early in the morning. Also unfortunately I didn't bring my monopod on the trip. But here is one of the shots that turned out.

    A Danish Lighthouse

    Normally I have the name and a brief history, but this was taken on a cloudy day, from a moving car (through the side window) on the way to Kobenhaven when I was there a couple of weeks ago. Sigma 18-125 at 125 and f7.1.

    Since it was a business trip there was little time to stop. I got some nice shots in the Nyhaven area as I stayed there on Saturday including a couple of Lightships.

    Update: This is the Sprogo Fyr (light) circa 1809, on the island of Sprogo on Storebaelt or the Great Danish Belt channel. The passage between the Sprogo Islands and Zealand Islands in Denmark, is the only way in/out of the Baltic Sea. There is a very large 6.8km bridge with a 2.7km suspension span just north of here which took the agreement of all the Baltic countries to allow Denmark to build.

    Here is a link to the bridge.

    Lightship in Nyhaven

    This is one of 2 Lightships tied up in Nyhaven, Copenhagen. Both have been converted to floating resturaunts. Didn't have a chance to try the food, but if it's as good as the other returaunts in the area then it is very good indeed.

    I'll post the other shot(s) as well.

    An excellent collection. Several shots in the series are "framers" and would look good printed at 11 x 14...

    I helped tow a lot of Albacore fishermen past that light when I was on the Cape Wash (95 ft. SAR boat) in the mid 70's.

    Looks like the Lighthouse Society could use some help with painting and upkeep.
