November 2017 - "Martian Flying Saucer"
Ken Lee

I love light painting. It's a creative, active, experimental sort of photography. And a lot of fun. The hours melt away.

But what is it?  It's a long exposure photographic technique in which the photographer moves a light source, - or sometimes the camera itself - to create the exposure.

I like to use light painting to illuminate objects at night, lighting from outside the frame, although I also sometimes like to "paint" light into the lens as well.

See more of Ken's work at www.kenleephotography.com and learn about light painting from his masterclass at www.better-photographs.com/light-painting.html

October 2017 - "Before the Storm"
John Curgenven

Having recently visited one of my favourite locations for the umpteenth time, I was reminded of one occasion when a storm was brewing in the western sky on a cold spring afternoon.

My attention was caught by the light playing on the mudflats at Bosham during low tide, so I grabbed a shot before retreating to my hotel, The Millstream to escape the deluge which followed soon afterwards.

September 2017 - "Stopover"
Ron Sutton

The Red Arrows flew low over my garden yesterday afternoon...a big surprise...so I got my camera and followed them...so to speak!

They were doing a stopover at a small local airfield before flying on to a display. Managed to get these few images including a practice of one of their formations. The light wasn't great but when you're under their landing flightpath and they're only 100' above your head...who cares!

A small hummingbird, the snowy-bellied measures just 10 cm (3.9 in). Head and upper chest are metallic green. Lower chest and belly are pure white. Back and rump are metallic copper. The tail is generally coppery in the eastern population and blue-black in the western population.

July 2017 - "Santorini"
Brenda Kean

Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape.

The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). They overlook the sea, small islands to the west and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles.

June 2017 - "Reflections"
Carol Wiles

The lush, green island of Lesvos, or Mytilini as it is also called, is like no other Greek island and perhaps no other place in the world. It is the third largest of the islands in Greece behind Crete and Evia.

Virtually unaffected by the mass tourism that has turned other islands into amusement parks, Lesvos is the perfect place to visit for people who want to experience the real Greece.

For the Greek Island traveler who is worried about not having enough to do, Lesvos is the perfect destination with amazing food, beautiful beaches, pine and hardwood forests, rivers and over a million olive trees.

March 2017 - "Last Light"
Lynda Sutton

Image of the Month for March is by Lynda Sutton who photographed this landscape of the River Dee with her mobile phone. She was standing next to her husband, Ron who shot the same scene with his DSLR, but the result was no better!

An incredible sunset to get red and silver/white in the same sky (plus the convenient swan!). This image has not been enhanced/Photoshopped in any way.
