Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up


Late again! I had every intention of getting this weeks challenge in early but with No 1 son home at the moment my time has been taken up with going out with him on various photography trips. We don’t get to see him that often, as he lives on the other side of the world so it’s nice to catch up and indulge in a practice we both share. Anyway better late than never for Looking Up. This week I’ve got a stone pillar from Wells cathedral in Somerset. These massive stone columns support the roof of the cathedral.

Fuji Finepix S9600 15sec at f22, ISO 100

Next, it’s the Breitling Wing Walkers. Those daring young ladies who strap themselves to an aircraft and are thrown about the sky as those aircraft perform a series of aerobatic moves. I wonder if they have anything to eat before performing.

Twosome

Samsung GX10, Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG, 1/1000 sec at f8, ISO 400

Finally, three massive cranes from Clydeport, Greenock in Scotland. These cranes are used at the container and cruise terminal.

Well that’s it for this week. Next week I’m at the Mach Loop for a few days so hopefully I will be able to get some photographs of military aircraft flying low through the valleys, here in North Wales.

    Very nice photographs. The first thing I thought of when I saw you topmost photograph was the central column of a carousel (merry-ground). Looks just like that. I always enjoy looking at your photographs. I just haven’t been very active lately.

      They can often be seen at Air Shows, Alexandria. sorry for the delay in approving your comment, I’ve been away, photographing low flying military aircraft. Thank you, though, for taking the time to comment
