Some cool upload photo images:
Conisbrough and Cadeby Crags viewed from North Cliff quarry, Conisbrough Crags, South Yorkshire
Image by Earthwatcher
Originally uploaded for the Guesswhere UK group.
This is a north-easterly view over the Don valley and part of Conisbrough, South Yorkshire, near Doncaster. The photo was taken from the disused quarries in the Lower Magnesian Limestone (Edlington Formation) at North Cliff, Conisbrough, sometimes known as 'Conisbrough Crags', sometimes as 'Denaby Crags'. The buff-coloured embankment across the valley is 'Cadeby Crags' - the scarp slope of the Lower Magnesian Limestone. The site of the former Cadeby colliery is just in front of Cadeby Crags. Cadeby village is on the distant skyline at (0.2, 0.6). The disused buildings of the Earth Centre are at the extreme left (0.05, 0.5).
Flickr member loose_grip_99 has a photo of Cadeby Crags and Cadeby colliery in 1976 here:
See where this picture was taken. [?]
Timelapse #1 - Clouds on Mules Park (25.01.2008)
Image by lenoz
Just uploading a few of my timelapse videos to check out this new Flickr Video stuff. Unfortunately some of my better ones are over 90 seconds long. They run at 15fps, and I've tried to use TMPGEnc to re-encode them at 24fps to shorten them but it's not happening at all - I thought it'd be simple so if anyone knows a way to re-encode XviD at a faster speed, please let me know! (Of course, i've deleted the source images :-s)
This one was my first ever. Some clouds moving on top of Mules Park, Teignmouth. It was windy and my PClix lead fell out of the camera! Scratch ending!
WOW! In about a day this video has had over 1000 views, more than probably all of my photos put together! I don't understand why though - please check out this one: Timelapse #2 - Teignmouth Harbour Sunset... I think it's far superior! Thanks again guys
Leica M8 IR Madness
Image by Joi
(hmm upload has inverted the order of this image and the next magenta one)
Here is an "as shot" image showing the Leica M8 "IR Sensitivity" issue. One of the problems with the M8 is that it is overly sensitive to Infrared light and shows up as magenta. The heater should be a reddish-organge color on the left and the chef's clothes are blackish grey, as is the drape thing by to the back kitchen. The next photo is an attempt at the "work around" from the Leica Forums: www.leica-camera-user.com/digital-forum/9178-magenta-work...
So definitely get the M8 if you love magenta. :-P
Update: I just started a Flickr group for all of you crazy people:
