Dumfries to Chichester

Feature image

Gallery published by Richard Goodwin

You can tell when I get bored or nervous - I start shooting everything in sight. This is a record of the journey from Dumfries in Scotland back to Chichester on the south coast of England, which took three trains, a 'plane, a bus, and about nine hours.

I took many pictures of the clouds from above when on the 'plane, which was in part due to both boredom and nerves. As I was above the engine I switched to a widescreen mode I found while playing with the camera to cut out as much machinery as possible. I wouldn't have been able to take any pics if it wasn't for the nice Goth girl reading Empire magazine switching seats with me - thanks! :)

Wanting to try out my new camera properly, I volunteered to travel from the south coast of England up to Dumfries in Scotland - a round trip of around 16 hours - just to install one computer. So, the plan was two days of travelling, an hour or so of installing, and the best part of a day photographing. However, as the server ended up taking from 10am to about 4:30pm due to network problems, the following were taken during an extended lunch break while I was trying to figure out what the hell was going wrong...

As the new camera has not only a 10x optical zoom (the same as a good pair of binoculars, and better than my 8x25 binoculars I carry in my backpack) but also lots of new settings for taking landscapes, portraits, action shots, night shots etc., it might look like there are a number of near-duplicate pictures as I play around with the settings. There are also a lot of photographs of birds on a river...

The old version of the website broke galleries into separate pages and directories, and required an introduction page just to show up in the list.  This is no longer the case, but to avoid dead search engine links here's a quick overview of some of the photos in the Norfolk 2003 collection!

There are 14 galleries in this section.

Norfolk 2003: Holkham Hall, 8th September

Holkham Hall is a lovely stately home with deer, lakes, and some great statues inside and out.  But I think we were most interested in the nesting house martins under the eaves of the shop.
