Nice work Chilli, and thanks for the reply Penfold.

Here's a few pictures taken from Lepe beach looking towards Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, last weekend. The sky was just amazing.

(This one is definitely a tweeterflit.)

(Nephew and external-propulsion system.)

These are all straight out of the camera, I need to adjust, crop and tweak some of them to get the best out of them.

Very nice pics Knight. :D (The single bird looks a bit like a guillemot to me but I'm no expert and am probably wrong :think: )

Great shots Knight! I love the 4th beach shot. Also love the tweeterflit, horses and the one of your nephew. :D

We got a free photo shoot voucher when we bought Karen's car. It's not something we would normally do, but it ended up being quite fun. We took a few props that meant something to us. You'll see H is sitting in a pile of TP books reading TP. D and I are reading the most used books in the house....Jose's repair manuals :lol:

Excellent, Chilli, but I'm surprised you didn't manage to fit Jose into the studio. :D

Ah, Chilli, those pics made my day. You and your family are gorgeous!

:D Flittertweets.

How do you fix wonky horizons? Stop drinking, perhaps? I don't like the sound of that.

Five gold stars for excellent Uncle duties.

Cheers everyone.....it turned out to be a fun day. We didn't know what expect, but the photographer was very good at getting people to relax and have a laugh.

I wish I could have, but the studio wasn't big enough! I was actually wondering about getting a summer photoshoot done with Jose and family. There's a photographer in on of the VW clubs who will do professional vehicle photos for magazines etc. I may have a chat with him next year and see if the finances allow!
