Arrsers self taken photo collection.

I had my first 'paid for' photography job since lockdown last week. It was a time trial, rather than a race where runners went off in a time-staggered format to enable social distancing.

One lad's job was purely to disinfect a gate handle.

Wor Lass took me on a long weekend's route march in and around the Gower peninsular:

This is the return from the Worm's Head:

That is stunning. On your doorstep as well.

Trying to catch a bee in flight on the lavender in the garden. After several failed attempts, I finally got one.

Superb photos.
As a complete aside, I saw my first hornet today (South Hampshire). Sure it was a regular hornet, as it was ginger and fluffy with the mad head.
I have got used to the other mental hornets, so a local took me by surprise.
But that’s life in Hampshire for you. Photos to follow, hopefully.
 
I find the photograph below ...

.... intriguing .... the two people going surfing could almost be ants carrying something back to a nest .... and do not lets us get into the Father Ted / Dougal perspective discussion .

It's me trying to be 'arty'. I'm a Geordie; that doesn't come easily.

Lots of what bearded types call 'negative space' (all the sand). I positioned the ship and the surfers in the frame following the rule of thirds.

I certainly got the impression that some thought had gone into the composition .... even with my simplistic skills I often offset main subject to some effect . How far were you away from the Surfers ?

A good way away; I used the long end of a 70-200mm lens on a cropped body sensor (which gives a x1.5 increase in magnification).

For context I was stood at the top of Rhossili cliffs; this is the view with a 24mm lens down to the beach:

You can see the ship wreck on the beach if you look closely:

Taken whilst up in Dundee. It's the steps leading up to the Tay road Bridge footpath, taken on the Dundee side.
