Portsmouth   12 comments

Yeah I know, I’m slacking again, I’ve just been so busy, first it was Hank, now he’s done (but broken) I’ve started on the driveway of our house, I promised the wife once Hank was done the drive out front and the patio and summer house out back will be done, so I start these things and then get called away, while I was away this time my wife filled a complete skip with dirt, that is some going, about 4 to 5 tons of the stuff.

Of course I appreciate all this hard work my wife has done but its not all plain sailing for me out there you know, high winds, freezing temperatures, danger around every corner, like just the other day we had to negotiate our way through this lot.

This is Spinnaker Tower is a 170-metre (560 ft) landmark tower in Portsmouth. It is the centrepiece of the redevelopment of Portsmouth Harbour, which was supported by a National Lottery grant. Its shape was chosen by Portsmouth residents from a selection. The tower was opened on 18 October 2005. If you would like to know more about Portsmouth click Here

Lerwick HDR   19 comments

Made it home again in one piece, landed at Scatsa in the Shetlands via helicopter only to hear on the news that one had crashed in London killing two people, not good to hear at any time.

Rig move went well, a few problems with one anchor which added a couple of days onto the job, but other than that smooth sailing.

Below is a couple of shots I took while in Lewick waiting on weather, I just downloaded the trial version of Nik’s HDR Efex Pro 2 and though I would try it out on a couple, these shots were taken around 4 o’clock on a wet overcast day so I’m hoping the HDR will brighten them up a bit.

This one of a single small boat caught my eye because I just liked the colours of the thing, behind in the water reflection is the Shetland Museum, I didn’t have chance to visit but it looked pretty cool through the window.

And one of the harbour, this is 7 shots merged together, it’s early days with the software but I’ll keep trying, unless you lot think I should just give up now.

Be warned more HDR tomorrow.

Finally made it to the rig, a 45 minute chopper ride, not sure what the flight was like as I slept all the way.
It’s more hurry up and wait on here as the weather is not good, hopefully we will be able to start tomorrow morning. Just a short job, we think! 24 hours to pull all the anchors, short 4 mile tow and then put them all down again, maybe home by Tuesday.
I found this little harbour while walking around Lerwick the other night, only half a dozen boats moored in it, most very small, this old fishing boat was by far the biggest and as you can see isn’t going anywhere until high tide.
