These images from Westonbirt were all taken with a Sony RX100. I have fitted this camera with a Gariz gold coloured ‘bling kit’. There is no doubt that the ‘bling kit’ may improve the image quality by up to 500%. Ok, I did eat the Lemon Drizzle Cake. I like this one. Makes me want to know what is around the bend… It really looked like this. Warm sunny lovely day. A bit of a howler here. Lots of potential for a nice shot, and I manage to position a flower head right in the doorway. Doh! Finally I am in Bath. This authentic looking statue is a least 4 years old. Sigma DP Merrill cameras… nothing captures detail like these cameras. And so to the races. Horse with stable person. A Happy Horse! Didn’t win though. My considered opinion after my first trip to the races… If you watch motor racing on TV you get to see all the action, often more than once, from more than one angle. It can be really exciting. If you watch motor racing at the trackside, then every now and then the cars come past and one gets the opportunity to jump up and down and get excited. If you watch horse racing you get one chance to try and spot your horse before they all go past and the race is over. This is not value for money. I won actual money at this event, but on reflection, if I take into account the entrance fee, the drinks, the food and the losses… I lost actual money at this event! And so on to Clevedon… This pier was built from railway track. And, it won Pier of the Year in 2012 or 2013, one or the other. Notice how the water resists any urge to reflect the lovely blue of the sky. I am told that the rich brown colour is due to a disused and now flooded cocoa mine. It’s not all bad though. If you scoop up a cupful and leave it in the sun for a while you have a delicious beverage to accompany your egg butties. I like this one because you can’t see the cold cocoa water. Pity the boards weren’t wet though. And finally on to Weston Super Mare. I made a point of researching why this place has such a strange name. And for the life of me I can’t remember what I discovered. These beach images have real atmosphere when viewed at full size. Weston Super Donkey? Nice dibber… I suspect it would have your eyes out given half a chance.
