View on black please.


Living in London, I don't get much change for seascape or semi-seascape photographs. I usually have to go to Napoli to get decent water shots, especially nice sunset ones, although sometimes you can make do with a river. Strange as it may seem, my latest water image is from a landlocked country - Hungary.


I was quite surprised at just how massive Lake Balaton is. It is the largest lake in Central Europe and 22nd largest in the whole of Europe, putting it several places ahead of Northern Ireland's own Lough Neagh.


This photo was quick shoot while we tried to find somewhere to eat. Sadly, during these exposures, the waves shot up through the cracks in this lopsided pier and covered by lens in water drops. Had to do a bit of potatoshop magic to get rid of the marks.


I wasn't too sure what daily photo to put up today, so my lovely followers on Twitter picked this one (without seeing it until now, might I add).


This looks much better larger and on black. (Press L)
