Last weekend I celebrated my 30th Birthday with my closest friends in a barn in Swale Dale, in the Yorkshire Dales (North Yorks).

Here are a couple of snaps taken during the walk into the hills of Upper Swaledale on the Saturday:

There is a small Lead Smelting ruin above Healaugh by a brook (according to the sign the hills contain rich veins of lead ore):

I’ll add the storm and this last one to the
weather and landscape galleries.

The barn was Low Row bunkhouse (camping barn) partly run by YHA – a great option for a heavy session over 2 nights.

On the way there we passed through a beautiful plateau with a fantastic viaduct – I think it’s called Ribbleshead Viaduct – with low cloud all over the hills the scene looked great:

Note for tecchies: the post processing on the 2nd photo was simple using Lightroom 3: used ND grad tool and desaturated lower section, desaturate rest of picture slightly then up individual colour channels for red, magenta etc to bring out the heather colours…geeky yet simple.

Secret Garden Gathering gig - Zanzibar, 31st July 2010.

I have just managed to assign music to a slideshow for the first time! If you load this gig slideshow it should start up with a track from the band that they only recorded in the studio 8 days ago!

I like it when modern technology works like this.

For any tecchies – I am building my photo galleries using SlideshowPro for Lightroom along with Director, which uses an SQL database (hosted on my host server) to store and manage the images.
