Bit of a cheat, these from Northumberland hols last summer, but in mitigation, I wasn't in the community last summer

Thanks Mike (still not saying anything tho, coz it's still last summer
Things will probably be quiet on this thread until September time as the days become noticeably shorter, except, for those like me who have to get up early for work, or those lucky enough to have the time to catch the dawn chorus, along with the benefits of spring and autumnal sunrises and sunsets being usually more colourful.
The important thing is, you've managed to get a more favourable image size.

PimperneBloke said:Yeah, I'm usually out of the house by 5am for work so I may catch a few more. A couple of glorious one's this past week, but what with driving and stuff I thought best concentrate on the road lol
I'm not quite so early, but that is due to my circumstances after someone ran a red light taking me with them and smashing my leg. Work have been brilliant and allowed me to start a little later, because 4 am is early enough to get up and it takes a while to get dressed in the morning.
One thing before I finally close down the PC for today, quite a few contributors post a good selection of photos on Flickr. Click on their links in the signature, you'll be able to view their photos, and some very good ones too.
Mine don't quite come up to their standards, but I'm happy to relive the moments, so feel free to have a look.
Just before sunset over the River Kent in Cumbria on Wednesday
I was pleased by the lack of flare in that shot. And a short while later after the sun had just gone down.
STOP PRESS: Volcanic eruption sends fiery dust cloud over Cumbria!!!
Oh, alright, another 10 or 20 minutes later when the sun had so gone so low, the clouds went a spectacular red.

Cracking photos Nige
OK, I've been away again, and busy, so apologies for the absence and forthcoming deluge of photos.
A couple of sunset pics taken over Conwy Bay from Llandudno West Shore, with Anglesey and Puffin Island in the distance.
Dwygyfylchi sunset viewed from Synchnant Pass N Wales
Looking back down the path towards Synchnant Pass, N Wales.
Don't be fooled, I've not returned back to the hills yet, that is just an easy stroll for any one, was a struggle for me but worth it for the views, as you will see on the next couple of photos
And looking over Conwy Bay towards Anglesey and Puffin Island from Dwygyfylchi.
That's all for now.
