Beautiful, Nick: where was that landscape taken? I've seen that shed before...

Oh – sorry, have I posted that before? Or is it just the location you've seen before? Anyway, no mater and no secret. See Google Maps 55.669652, -1.796643. The castle is another of the five I spoke of yesterday.

I've seen other photographs, not this one, Nick. Do you know the background of those sheds: why the roof peak? It's reminiscent of an overturned boat's keel.

Overturned boat hulls where exactly what I saw at first glance. Very interesting way to build a shed if that is the case.

You know, when one has finally reached a minimal level of maturity, gaining enough sense not to venture out on a day like today, distress calls from children who have not attained that level of discernment have you slip sliding around to save them from a pickle. The streets are the worst they have been since this began due to freezing fog this morning and now a slight melting which is covering everything with a thin layer of water. When I got out of the car to attempt to rescue Jennifer I slid flat footed from my car to hers, about 100', without ever taking a step. JR was in the same situation last night in his 2.5 ton Ram diesel pick up. Gotta love the Land Crusher, driven gingerly it just rolls on.

Well …. I could spin you all kinds of yarns – but the truth is that the sheds are in fact upturned boats – exactly as you thought. See http://www.secrets-of-shed-building.com/lindisfarne-boat-sheds.html
for the story.

Since I live on the mainland – close to the island causeway – I do have ...err.... shed loads of pictures. Here is another.

Pretty Cardinals and sheds!

We didn't get the ice storm like that in Dallas, but it's been cold enough here to explode the frostweed in our garden.

Hang on, that's enough for one day: between Lindisfarne boat sheds and exploding frostweed I can't take in any more new information.

Poking around after reading Nick's link, I found this piece about boat sheds, photo contests, and the excessive use of Photoshop.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2228184/Haunting-picture-Lindisfarne-Castle-triumphs-competition-stunning-landscape-Britain.html

And in response to Jo's revelation, I found this.

"Frostweed", certainly a new one on me! Don't want to be a round when a field full of those go off!

Same specs at 100% crop. I'd love to shoot the series II side by side today and see exactly how much difference there is. I'm sure the autofocus is slightly faster and slightly more accurate, and sometimes "slightly" is the edge a photographer needs.

Yes, a sad state of affairs in that competition. I simply don't have anything to do with paid entry competitions or salons, or the like. The stuff that does well in them is almost never to my (admittedly conservative) taste. Likely that may sound like sour grapes to some – so be it. I was careful to congratulate Dave on his win, and kept quiet when it got taken away. At the time I felt it unproductive to point out how obvious the manipulations where – thinking that it was my local knowledge that made it so, and not wishing to cause a fight on the forum we both frequent from time to time.
Quite recently I was asked how I managed to “drop in” such nice skies in some of my landscape work. I don't know who was more shocked – me, at being asked such a question – or the questioner, upon being told that I don't drop in skies and that I could not even if I wanted to because I don't know how!
Such is the state of “photography” here in the UK.

Dear Nick,

You took the high road, which I would have bet on. That's the state of photography everywhere, maybe not to the degree you see it there at home, but digital has ushered in a sloppiness to the capture phase of photography, much the way texting has murdered grammar and punctuation, only in our trade the thought is "I can fix it later."

I've never understood what wins in these competitions, but I just chalked it up to my limited artistic knowledge and vision. I'm sure I would walk through the most wonderful museums of art, scratching my head most of the time. Add to that the fact that people have caught on to paid competitions (the promoters), and figured out that they can make a wheel barrow full of money charging entry fees, and even per entry fees. The only expense they have in it is the promotion, I'm sure the prizes are gimme's from sponsors.

The fact that someone asked you about your skies indicates to me their complete lack of a grasp on our passion. No matter how well a sky is dropped in, most generally you can tell it has been. Continue to do what you do for the reasons you do it, you'll be much better off in the short and long run, as will we, because your images are beautiful.
