  1. Excellent !
  2. There was a track from this featured in the BBC drama "In The Dark" last night which very much reminded me of Radiohead with a touch of Ben Howard . It's not bad, perhaps a little long but quite enjoying it.
  3. New to me, one spin and I like it. Interesting to see the Yorke reference because there is some vocal phrasing that reminds me of him. The slower tracks have an inkling of Counting Crows which perhaps could be expected but I hear Dylan too - maybe it's just me. It's on again and I'm still liking it. There is nothing massively original however it's done well. SWMBO has just popped her head in whilst An Ocean Beneath The Waves is playing and asked who it is - that's perhaps my immediate favourite. Definitely my kind of music, I will probably buy it, actually I will. Good choice.
  4. Spectacular day in Northumberland today. This one on the walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle In Conversation by Les, on Flickr This one from Howick Hall - I'm grateful to Jeff (jkbmusic) for reminding me about this place a week or so back when he posted a pic.

  5. Blast Beach, Seaham by Les, on Flickr It's claim to fame, after being the deposit site for waste coal for Dawdon Colliery for many years, was it was used in the opening credits for Alien 3 Fuji X-T2 with XF 17-135mm

  8. If you can all move to Durham I'm in
  9. Pretty much how I found the Mac version of Luminar - they extended my trial as the new 'Neptune' version has just been released for Mac. I found it slow to process and slow to export. As a plugin to LR6 it was no better. It is easy to use however I just didn't feel it's anywhere near as good as LR/Nik. Tonality I thought was OK and may be a decent option post Silver Efex. I don't think they have quite sorted it for Mac, how that impacts upon it's release into Windows I don't know. I'll probably revisit it but maybe in another 12 months.
  10. To be replaced by HMS Queen Elizabeth Another sparkling idea !
  11. Thanks Tillman. I had the chance to board her on Sunday (with several thousand other people !). I took a few pics onboard but interior shots were forbidden in some areas and far too many people for photography. I'm still going through stuff and will probably post a couple of others. I've been on bigger cruise ships but being on her was quite special and she does have a real presence about her.
  12. Another couple of HMS Ocean on her final visit to Sunderland. She has spent 5 days in port and thousands turned out to wave her off last night.
