Swimming with the Turtles

Posted this up a month ago on YouTube, but never updated/added it here. Had a great Holiday this year in Olu Deniz, Turkey.
We weren;t really sure what to expect as we usually go for the livelier resorts like Marmaris but after 2 weeks baking in the sunshine I’m hooked now. We were quite literally 5 minutes away from the Blue Lagoon, where we not only saw turtles, but managed to get up close to them as well !

Southwold – Suffolk. A touch of HDR

Southwold Seafront - Suffolk

Dug out an old image and had a play. Whilst I don’t generally ‘do’ HDR, I took this shot bracketed and had 3 RAW files 2 stops apart. Added another 2 for -1 and +1 in lightroom then ran them through Photomatix to see if I could recover the cloudy sky yet still keep some detail in the houses.
Not really sure what else I did to it other than a little cross processing and a vignette but was quite pleased with the result.

A rather dismal day welcomed us to Ireland as we sailed past Roche’s Point on our way to berth at Cobh. Taken handheld, hanging off of the back of the Independence of the Seas. There will be more to follow as soon as I get round to processing them all.

First of the cruise photos to make it to the site.
This is the Cunard Queen Victoria as she glided silently up the Solent past the Independence of the seas. It was fairly early in the morning, the weather was awful and I had no tripod.
