No, still not jealous
I've never caught one
Don't often get them that size, there's been quite a few 10lb+ come from South West Scotland over the last few years. Since the storms a couple of years ago there's a popular mark that seems to throw up double figure thornies and smoothound where before it was all flatfish. Plenty up North too, though they tend to be smaller. I'd imagine a few on the North West coast of England. Indeed from February to June there can be not much else about up here when the cod have moved out to sea and the Summer species haven't arrived yet. Takes can be tentative as they will settle down and munch on a big bait, then double your rod over when they move off.
Don't really get them across here in the east. I do remember however, many years ago seeing a very small one washed-up on Aberdeen beach after a big storm, so they must be out there.
I've had the odd LSD across here but not regularly and none of the other species, Huss, Tope, Spurs, Smooties etc etc. You really are spoiled for choice.
Back to the original topic, I have a Flickr friend who uses his iPhone creating phenomenal fine art landscapes.
His influences are landscape painters. Corot, Cuyp, Cotman, Constable, Girtin, Gainsborough and Grimshaw are among those he has mentioned to me.
Here is the link to his Flickr site if anyone is interested in viewing his work:
You just picked one of the 2 things many cell phones do well
Now I'm curious as to what you feel the other is!
Many photos these days are shared digitally & seen by many more people than those printed. Printing is hardly a measure of the worth of a photo anymore.
Despite taking part in several exhibitions every year (till Covid 19 - all the main ones cancelled this year, the last one throughout October MAY still happen) it's still a very small proportion of my shots that get printed, and probably only 1/4 of those printed get mounted/displayed.
selfies / portraits, especially the in camera processing to manipulate backgrounds. They are also very good at getting images out to social media virtually immediately.
*gasp* I thought you were going to say call someone.
My wife bought a selfie stick this week. I'm doomed!!!!
Thank you! I agree.
I got a new camera phone...
