POTW Week 10 - Paul Stokes - Porthleven

Portleven Cornwall - The quay is about 100yds long and was built to provide safety from the Altantic waves.

Unfortunately this picture was taken a reasonably low high tide. Other defences have been built to provide safety for the harbour and properties during winter storms.

POTW - Week 9 - June Davis - Veronica

This picture is in memory of my friend.

We were out taking some shots for a future competition and I decided to take a picture whilst Veronica was enjoying the view, this was taken on 26th March and Veronica passed away suddenly on the 28th March 2019.

I miss my friend.

POTW - Week 7 - Chris Baker - Sunlit Tulip

The tulip was enjoying the sun in the back garden as much as I was. It was shining back brightly, and was wide open to catch the rays. It therefore had to be photographed... not even on macro setting, fore-arms on knees for stability, whilst sitting in front of it. A polarising lens prevented reflected glare. A watering can provided the "dew-drops".

POTW - Week 6 - Chris Baker - Knife Angel

I happened to be in Coventry at the same time as the Knife Angel, and couldn't resist the shot.

The sculpture was made at the British Iron Works in Oswestry, Shropshire by sculptor Alfie Bradley using over 100,000 knives/blades etc provided by (eventually) all the police forces in the UK. It has toured several British cities as part of a campaign to highlight/reduce knife-crime.
