La Tranche..again.

Any one remember that wet summer we had in Britain. well the one beneficiary was me sat down the French Coast sur le Vendee. By the time the clouds got to us there was no rain left in them so just ended up with big ol swirly ones like this, which was nice as it would have been too darn hot without them. I did promise to tell the (ha) secret of squeezing more out of the sky and I will post a link to a tootorial, much like the Alice portrait one., RAW file( with some sky) CS2 at least and steady hands.Won't do the tute til next week as I am going a bit giddy over very early morning/early evening stuff, anyway its the weekend so no-ones reading this anyway, except French Rugby fans who will be doing anything to avert their eyes from the massacreing their lads are taking............maybe...

Not too late to come and bore the pants off each other at the UK / National Flickr meet, Piccadilly Gardens 10 oclock Sunday, let me hold your hand as I drag a little group through the Rancid underbelly of this 24 hour town

New BBC4 series coming take a look...   http://www.bbc.co.uk/photography/genius/

This weekends treble.... Estonia losing by margin of 2 goals going on to a win for France if they are given a 6 point start. with at least one player being sent off between ROI and Germany......50p each way...its a dead cert, nudge nudge, wink wink....

Nice work! I don't think I want to be on the water with the skies looking like that.
David Johnson: The only thing that worried me were the size of the sea-slugs....yikes.....
Think we will beat Estonia and France. Real interest is South Africa and Argentina.... still think Argentina could win the cup. Oh and yes, this is a great picture. No surprise there.
David Johnson: See...france to beat us with a 6pt start...you know I have to start doing this with real money, might be a lark!
