I hope you had a good weekend out Fred, and your catch-up is swift. I know the feeling

Domien, D190 (the 2nd ) and D196 stand out to me. I still remember the D196 scene but didn't take a photo from there.


Fred, your Dean Village and Dean Bridge series is lovely but from the night scenes especially F235 and F243 are outstanding!


Here's my last series from our saturdaymorning walk in Edinburgh

p224: Town houses in the Castle area



p225: Writers Museum (Fred has another exciting photo from this place)



p226: A famous Scottsman



p227: My version of D193 (Edinburgh Waverly)



p228: The Usher Hall



And let me share two jokes:

p229: Suddenly we were with five

And no Alan, we din't loose any significant weight during our stay on Skye


p230: Spot the differences vs. D194


p225: A6000 + Sony E10-18/4
all others A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD

Thanks Pieter! The weekend (Montpellier) was OK, more work in Lightroom the coming days

I'll continue my catch up round

F246 D183 in IR



F247 And some more IR shots from the cemetery



F248



F249



F250



F251 Just the lost bike from D184



F252 The train (P221) in motion



F253 The cemetery in colour



F254 D187 from a different angle



F255



F256 Autumn is coming



F257 It wasn't easy to get a nice capture of this fountain (and without other photographers )



F258 The bagpipes (P223 ) again



F259 The national gallery of Scotland (F244) in daylight



Just a few more to follow from Edinburgh before we go on the ferry again.

I ended up with a gross number of 3000 , including bracketing with still some 1200 left. But this number will come further down as well

Great Fred, you're all caught up now. IR worked well on the cemetery, allthough I would have kept F246 is the same grey tint as the others. F252 (train in motion) is great, didn't think of using a longer shutter time while hanging over the wall! And you guessed right, F265 must have been exciting for you to discover there (I think).


As we're leaving Edinburgh the last place in the UK was Newcastle upon Tyne, and that limited to Tyne harbour. Here's my series what we saw just before and during the departure of our ferry back to IJmuiden

p231: We felt safe under the protection of the Dutch Navy (Zr Ms De Ruyter)



p232: Frontal view



p233: Just before we departed an interesting convoy passed us



p234: You can judge the size of these pipes by comparing them with the people on board (I guess they are windmill foundations)



p235: Leaving the harbour (and they even decoupled the tugboat on the rear a little later)



p236: A pilot shuttle whizzing by



p237: Bye bye UK, we had a wonderful time there


All A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD

One more series to go for me (arrival in IJmuiden)

I normally don't like IR photos but those from cemetery are quite good looking. I'm not sure what it is but those just look right.

Proud that Wojtek, me, and the bear are well photographed. Thanks.
I had missed the P237 tower. I just saw the fishermen
I'm glad the boat said BARGE, otherwise, we wouldn't have known it.
P232 shows what went wrong in D4 (EaRlY in this series)
F260 and F264 were necessary for a Scotland trip. thx

And the last GB shots

D197 THE boat transporting us back


D198 The Dyxym staff car, driven by Fred, transported us throughout the trip (thx )


D199 Shooting Phoneboots


D200 () Attempted illegal passing


D201 Tyne
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Thanks Pieter, You are probably right about F246, I considered it while postimg, but given my issies with the lR Mogrify borders decided to leave it as is for now.

Nice series from teh Tyne harbour. The pipes were impressive!

You felt totally comfortable with the bear Domien
I was surprised not to have seen the monument in F264 like that before from you or Pieter .

My takes in the harbour of Tyne after boarding on the ferry.

F269 Of course the barge with pipes


F270 With some interesting structures in the background



F271 Close up of to emphesize the measures



F272 Preparing for take off



F272 Gull parade



F273 The captain on the flagpole (in the rain)



F274 We were told by an expert that these were guillemots in wintercloths

In and outbound there was a (diffferent) young ladyon board to identify and count birds, porpoises, orca's etc. during the sail.


F275 The pipes leaving the harbour



F276 One of the tugs returning after having done its steering job in the harbour (see also P235)


Next: last set arriving in IJmuiden again
Unbelievable, we went for a week end of September and kept this tread going well into November. Never actively enjoyed a holiday so long after it ended

Thanks Macca, as you can imagine we had a great time touring Scotland.


OK, last series from me, arrival in IJmuiden


p238: The first thing you see appearing through the haze when approaching IJmuiden is the factory of Fred's employer



p239: Once between the piers is becomes a bit clearer



p240: And once in the harbour you can clearly see the big heaps of coal and ore, the moving equipment and the steam plumes from the cokes and pellet plants



p241: In the middle of the harbour entrance is Forteiland, a miltary structure from the late 19th century. Used in both world-wars and now no longer relevant in modern warfare



p242: Pilot shuttle



p243: Behind us some different style vessels were entering the harbour



p244: Big and small, who has more fun   


p238 & 243: A7Rii + Sony 70-300G   all others A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD


So, that was it from me . Thanks to Domien and Fred for the excellent company (where do we go next?) and Fred for all the driving. It was a splendid experience and not only due to the photography but we just had a very good time all together.

Also again thanks to everybody who commented on the thread. That interaction makes it more interesting to keep posting and giving some background with the photos. I'm glad you all enjoyed it!
