A slight diversion from the Spanish posts to mention something i should have posted before. I post on another website, a photographic one called Blipfoto (see here), it started off as a modest Edinburgh based site where you are are allowed to post only one photograph each day and that photo has to have been taken on the day you post it. All the photos are public and everyone can see everyone’s work. Anyway, Blipfoto has become huge in the last year and the press got interested. There were articles in the Times and the Sun, to cut a long story short they used my photo in both articles.

Blipfoto were hugely apologetic as both papers failed to credit any of the photographers but i was fine with that…not so keen to have my name in the Sun anyway! Interesting to see the differences between tabloid and broadsheet on the same story. The boys standing on their head is my image, i posted about them previously here.

…i interrupt this series of archival salone posts to celebrate the fact that i finally made it onto my plane…and we were not alone up there…
Crazy cloud formations towards the end of the alps…incidentally, i posted this photo on my Blipfoto account and this was one of the comments i got:
In shipping we call this ‘a near miss’ regardless if you use the zoom function. The relative speed should have been in the +1600 km/hr region when he was heading into opposite direction. A remarkably shot. Can’t imagine NCA will be proud. ~ GERT
I was too busy fumbling with my camera to worry about stuff like that…but i did think it was a bit close!
I did not tamper with the colour here, the sky was crazy blue…and no ash in sight.
Chasing the moon, which was odd as it was 2.20 in the afternoon.
Winding road and cloud shadows, am always looking for signs of life from the plane…still looking.
