I've got some photographs from my trip to the Lake District recently, I'll have to post them when I have the time...

I like the 3rd photo and the first Rydal water, oh the 2nd stepping stone one is nice too

I also like all the seagulls (or kittywakes) lined up along your Windermere photo.

I like the third photo, that one is nicely composed!

Oh I loved the first shot, even though it was spooky looking it really was the kind of thing I can imagine in a frame on the wall.
All others great too. The landscape is fantastic in some of them

Havent been well lately so not had a chance to get out and get some photos of the autumn trees and leaves, so i've just got a few photos to share from a trip I did with a friend last monday (I know they're boring for most but its all i've got to share at the mo)

Apologies for reduced quality also - photobucket does that.

Sunset over Terminal 4.. (too bad the hotair balloon in the distance had moved out of sight 10mins before I took this photo)

I like sunset/rise photos. Shame I get to work before the sunrise in winter :(; although with the clock changes I might see a few over the next few weeks.

Thanks very much, dipsy. You should try and get a sunrise photo. :D The one I took above was sunset.

I promise this will be my last plane photo for a while.. I took this at East Midlands Airport on saturday, unfortunately it was raining but i've never had the opportunity to see the biggest aeroplane in the world before.. the An225 which has 6 engines, only one was ever built and is used to transport cargo.. Its due to depart at 11am Monday morning.

Not sure, I think it might of been down to either cost or demand. The An225 was originally built in Ukrain when it was under the USSR and was developed to transport the Russian space shuttle. After the shuttle was retired they started using it for cargo. There is another half built one in a hangar in Kiev but they dont have the money to finish it.

Speaking of things with lots of wheels, have a look at this bad boy we're rolling up to our work Xmas dinner in - oh dear, oh dear!! (NOT my idea)

PS: Sorry, just realised that doesn't show you the car - it's the yellow one at the bottom right I'm referring to!
