Penners my No 1 is the Blue boat house just love the compilation of the colours in it and No 13 for the same reason with it's dirty brown sea and angry looking sky. :)

Gorgeous as usual, Penfold. Love the close-up of the water swirling around the pillar (3rd last pic).

Beautiful pictures! The one of the houseboat is stunning.

Here's a quick one - a golden tree I came across the other day while walking by the river Lea.

Salix x sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma' aka yer Weeping Willow innit ;)
What a wonderful find Knight! The prospect of an early Spring this year is becoming a reality after a few very odd seasons in past years.

Love the new camera pics Penners :D
The swirling water ones :clap:
However....the second to last one? Is that a bloke lying on the beach? Did you bribe a friend to do that or just find him? If the latter, did you take the picture before calling the police or after?
Just wondered :lol:

:lol: I wondered about the bloke on the beach too!

Glad to see I'm not the only one. I assumed it was someone Penners had been croupier for the night before and that was all he had left :shock:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Thanks guys and a lovely pic of the weeping willow Knight. :D

Just to clarify the guy laying on the beach. He did have people with him, just out of shot and was perfectly ok. He wasn't posing for me and hadn't a clue I was taking the photo (one handed while walking past; raise camera to eye, click, and lower in one quick smooth movement). :D

Back in my drinking days; the pub I used regularly often had a 'lock in' for a card school but I wasn't allowed to participate because they thought my job would make me an 'expert'. :roll:

Thanks, I thought it was a weeping willow but wasn't sure. Think I've said before in this thread, I'm not good at identifying trees or birds, although I can generally tell one from the other.
