Buon Natale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy Trinity Church, Claygate, Esher, Surrey, England

The Anglican church was built in 1840.

CASTLE STALKER,where many scenes from Monty Python's "Monty Python and the Holy Grail " were filmed

King Arthur: I am your king.

Peasant Woman: Well, I didn't vote for you.

King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.

Peasant Woman: Well, how'd you become king, then?

[Angelic music plays... ]

King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king.

Dennis the Peasant: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Arthur: Be quiet!

Dennis the Peasant: You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!

Arthur: Shut up

Dennis the Peasant: I mean, if I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

Arthur: [grabs Dennis] Shut up! Will you shut up?!

Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!

Arthur: [shakes Dennis] Shut up!

Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I'm being repressed!

Arthur: Bloody Peasant!

Dennis: Ooh, what a giveaway!

Just back from a long weekend in glorious Northumberland! Keep finding myself being drawn back to this same magical location on the Holy Island Causeway so apologies to those who have seen my shots from here before but I find it totally different every time I visit. It was almost dark when I took this shot late last night hence the very long exposure.

I have traveled quite a bit in and around the UK and in the years that I have been here, I never have had an opportunity to get some shots of Stratford. I have been meaning to move to full frame for a while but neither found the gumption nor the all important funds to do so...


But I thought I would give it a shot at this point in my life as I feel I need to re-invent myself with something that I can start as a beginner and enjoy the little strides that I make everyday in my attempts to learn something new. Nikon D800 is an absolute beast of a camera. I have used my Nikon D90 to an extent that I am at home with Nikon and its controls and nuances. So it only took me about 30 mins to familiarise with the controls and get cracking with some shots. But I know this is only the tip of the iceberg and this camera is capable of so many things that I would start exploring in the months to come...


Going full frame was never easy and I had to upgrade everything that I owned so far including lens, filters, tripod, backpack and even my memory cards! Nothing that I used in D90 is useful anymore. My most difficult choice is the lens as I had to choose between the most coveted lens that Nikon produces - the 14-24mm f2.8 and its little brother 16-35mm f4. After a lot of deliberation, I went with 16-35mm as I have a lot of filters including the IR one that I shot this pic with that would be readily useful.


I would look for a 14 or 15mm UUWA prime in the coming months and hopefully get one. Till then, my angle of view is no different to my most awesome lens- the Tokina 11-16mm with the 16-35mm on FF body. However, the sharpness and the colours rendered is simply unmatched! Turns out the 16-35mm is more than a good handler of IR work and as there are no striking landscapes where I live, I took this for a test drive to the nearby Avon river.


The Holy Trinity Church or the Shakespeare's Church as it is often known is the place of baptism and burial of William Shakespeare. More than 200,000 tourists visit the church each year.The past building dates from 1210 and is built on the site of a Saxon monastery. It is Stratford's oldest building, in a striking position on the banks of the River Avon, and has long been England's most visited parish church.


Thanks for viewing and have a nice weekend everyone!

me and simon owens, went to holy island , at silly oclock this morning.

The entrance into a typical church in Portugal - the blue is an ancient "heritage" from the days of the Arab occupation - its meaning is almost still the same: to keep away the devil or the "evil eye".


Enjoy your weekend for those we leave ..

'Holy Cow!'


Lucky to still be alive after last thursday's crazy thunderstorms following up the extreme heat we had last. I was shooting at a lake and already heard the thunder in the distance. When I noticed it was coming from behind of me I started looking for other compositions. These cows were the closest thing I could find and they were looking funny at me with the storm going strong in the distance. 5 minutes after I took this shot I had to rush into my car for shelter as the rain started pouring and the storm was coming right at me. There were thunder strikes all around me and I was observing the show from out of my car.


This is a blend of 2 different exposures. 1 was taken at 15 seconds for all of the lightning. After I got the proper lightning shot the cows were obviously a bit blurry. So I took another shot of them at ISO 1600 and layered it.


Taken with the A7II with the new Batis 25mm f2. Exif not showing properly for this lens yet.


for more about this, including a review of the new Batis visit my FB @ Albert Dros Photography.

What do you do if you're in a building of tremendous scale and don't yet own a wide angle lens? Simple, stitch two shots together in photoshop! Which means this picture is quite large at 100%, so click here if you'd like to enter the holy of holies:

The only thing Baba G always carrys with him is a plastic bag with Babud (human ashes) which he rubs over his whole body to protect him from the cold.


Baba Mehand Bidjegri is a Naga Sadhu, aged 43 yrs old.

Born in Kolkata of the Atjaria Caste (Braham) which is a high caste, his father was a Sadhu and all male members in his family are Sadhus.

Baba G as he calls himself is celebate and vowed to leave everything but mentioned he has no objection to alcohol and drugs.

Baba G lives everywhere and has no belongings, he moves around all the time and as a child ( 9 yrs.) he did the 'childroute' and lived in various Ashrams where he learned to read and write while his family supported him.

The only thing he always carrys with him is a plastic bag with Babud (human ashes) which he rubs over his whole body to protect him from the cold.


In Hinduism, Sadhu means a good man, a holy man, a wondering monk.

Most Sadhus are yogi's but not all yogi's are Sadhus

The Sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving liberation, the fourth and final 'asrama' (stage of life), through meditation and contemplation.

Sadhus often wear saffron-colored clothing, symbolizing their 'sanyasa' (reincarnation) ©Ingetje Tadros

After a failed aurora hunting expedition at Holy Island with David Relph last night i'm just glad I came home with some nice images to create a new composite. The lunar halo was shot earlier this year off the coast of Hartlepool. We met a few togs up there last night but it wasn't as busy as I was expecting it to be with all the aurora hype. Good to see others around the world had better luck than we did in the UK.

Came across this very early before sunrise traveling the back roads of Iowa. As I travel I often see many symbols and ties to religion that run deep and are a big part of this life style... but this is the first Holy Cow! I've encountered.

Happy Fence Friday!

Towering above Buckfast Abbey is the shell of the mediaeval church of Holy Trinity, Buckfastleigh, burned to the ground twice in history. By its entrance is the Cabell tomb with its casket held fast by a huge slab to prevent his spirit from escaping to roam the moors. The legend inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write the Hound of the Baskervilles.

The churchyard contains many of my Devon ancestors.
