Thanks for the comments all.
@ Steve - would appreciate your C&C re the elements you find distracting & need removal.

@ Niall, The second pub, 'The Mason's Arms' is in 'Lower' Odcombe. The church is in Norton-sub-Hamden. I had just bought a 70-200L and on my way home over Ham Hill. It had gone dusk. I always stop at the top of Ham Hill and take in the wonderful view. The mist was just rising out of the ground around the church. From memory, it was a 30 second exposure - the first image from the 70-200!

@ Tom a good thatch should hold tight and be waterproof for 20 ~ 25 years. There are various reeds used for thatching. A Norfolk Reed is supposed to be the best. The thatcher will cover his new thatch with wire netting to stop birds pulling reeds out for nesting materials! Various thatchers have their own trade mark. The make a straw sculpture of some sort. If you have a look on the roof of the Royal Oak pub, you can see the thatcher made several straw ducks thereupon.

Thatches are very warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They are beautiful but there is a downside. They are a fire risk. Imagine a spark or two from a well stoked fire. A new thatch can cost 20,000 or more (approx. $US32,000)

The other downside is that most thatch cottages are 'listed' buildings. That means that the owners will be under severe restrictions on what they can do with the building (re-modelling etc - must use same types of windows, not allowed to knock walls down or add extensions etc) and that means the must replace a thatched roof with a thatch... Here endeth the lesson!

Nice to see you posting again Donald. Have to agree that the last image in your post is magical well done young Sir.

BTW The area around Donald's home really is that picturesque, and the folks in those parts are very nice to know. I've been the grateful recipient of much hospitality.

Donald and I will be flying a low level, two ship formation for White Ensign Day @Yeovilton on the 12th of July. All are welcome to join us please let me know If your coming so that I can arrange the right number of shooting towels, button badges, and ice-creams.

Until White Ensign Day this is as close to aviation as I get . oh well.

Thank you Donald!

Lady Jo, I've always been fairly pleased with my ability to capture challenging images from the air, but this stabilizer has taken both my abilities and my expectations to a whole new level. Granted, at 1/8th all the stars have to align and the air needs to be like velvet, but even with all those factors on one's side, that shot was made out of "unobtanium" as Glenn Smith would say, prior to the 4x4 and the D800/1DX.

There are a couple of modern metal storage buildings I'd like to see gone, and perhaps one or two of the more obnoxious street lights.

Nice work J-A!

Sometimes, a simple elevation shot where everything lines up just works for me...

Since Cleveland's airshow this year is cancelled, I'm planning on attending the Alliance airshow this year. I was looking at the Alliance website, and it looks like a lot of the pages are still there from last year's show. Is the early morning access and seating available this year? Suggestions on what hotel to stay at there? I'm looking forward to putting some faces on the names I see posting here.

Jay, If only you'd given us a choice between 'duck lips' or 'no duck lips', it would be an easier question to answer.

I can't choose; both are standouts.

Fox Moth
Recently during a Warbirds day at Ardmore I took the opportunity of going for a 15min flight in this beautifully restored plane with an 84 year old father & son, at the very reasonable cost of $60, The Older gentleman flew Mosquito's as a navigator and trained in Canada in WW2, as did my uncle and many other New Zealanders's who did their airforce training in Canada at that time.

He had some great stories especially during the restoration of the KA114 Mosquito rebuilt at Ardmore, and each week on a friday afternoon, was invited to go and view & discuss the weeks progress on the basis that Dad & son brought a tray (24) beers for the team, and he was so excited to tell me that he would climb onto a scissor hoist and raise it so he could sit in the navigator's position and they took progress photos for him. He was also invited to the celebration dinner and had photos taken with the team following its completion.

The following photos are a memory of this flight & the surrounds taken during this flight and a link to this bygone era.
