    Been thinking about this for a while and wonder if there's an interest in a thread where we can share pictures from - let's say - a max 5 km radius around where we live. Could be a nice opportunity to share a broad range of topics (nature, urban, wildlife, etc.) from the area we should know best... Just found out this morning that there's plenty of locations around the village I live in which are worth spending a bit more time with the camera...
    Let me know what you think?

    This is what it typically looks like in the Spring.

    And here's the view mid-Summer. You can see my wifes handy work.

    Here are a couple taken with a 85mm lens to get me a bit more reach. They show how dramatic it can get around here...

    I have taken a ton of panoramas. I have one 10-footer downstairs in the family room.

    Two from a Park close to my home last summer (pining for the warmth)...

    Truth is that Fort Whyte Alive is the perfect place to chill in any season.

    This was taken from the roof of the apartment where I live in Suginami ward, Tokyo. The clump of skyscrapers in the distance is Shinjuku, home of the busiest train station in world (according to Wiki when I last looked). My roof is a fantastic place to shoot sunrises.

    Here you are taken with X-T1 and 18-55mm from? Bit of a clue in the photo.
    Meandering river complete with 15th century bridge, one of only four remaining with a chapel in the middle.
    Morning mist was just clearing, so bit of haze in the distance, lovely morning for a flight and got up to just over a mile high that day

    Thank you Erik, go for the balloon flight if you get a chance, fantastic feeling floating silently (apart from the burners) above the earth

    This is the Kelvin Aqueduct taking the Forth & Clyde canal over the river Kelvin. It is part of the canal network that allows vessels to travel from the west coast to the east coast of Scotland without having to negotiate the tricky northern routes. It's part of the same network the Falkirk Wheel is on. It is 136m long and is some 20m above the river. If you look closely you will see the sides are arched to transfer the outward pressure of the water in the canal onto the buttresses below. It was started in 1787 and completed in 1790 so has stood for almost 230 years and is now a category A listed structure. It's still in use today in fact I watched a yacht cross it yesterday. I think it's a marvellous structure. My house is just behind the ones you can see on the horizon so I probably pass over or under this daily.

    Erik,
    I should have said this is a great idea for a thread - thanks for posting.

    Carrying on this thread - my morning dog walk had a nice interlude on the Kelvin Aqueduct.

    Heading west - I just noticed the photobomb duck

    They were certainly motoring - I don't know the speed limit on the canal.

    Disused railway bridge support pillars. I like the pink sandstone and green moss.

    Hi Jamie, thanks for pics; looks like a nice area to walk the dog! One question: these pics seem a little bit dark imo, almost underexposed (?). Are these jpg's 'as shot'?
    I'm pretty sure there is more detail to gain from these files, especially if you have RAW copies as well !?

    Erik,
    Thanks for your reply. It's a cloudy day here and as the lock walls and boat are dark I was trying to ensure I didn't blow out the sky. I did very little processing of them but used Photoshop's Auto Levels as a guide as to whether the exposure was ok. They were all taken with my X100S with TCL. The boat images were 33mm f7.1 1/500 iso 400 and the pillars were f6.4 1/250 iso400.

    I've just edited the first 3 from their DNG files and upped the exposure by +0.6 in ACR. Do you think they look better? I'm editing on my laptop sitting with my back to a window so that's maybe not the best idea.

    Looks much, much better now Jamie, at least at the iMac I'm looking at right now!
