    I took a ride to one of my favourite seaside places just north of Sydney today.

    There's an old outdoor swimming pool there - in need of repair but still operational. The water was quite cold and there were only a few swimmers (in wetsuits) using it.

    I have always loved the weathered look that marine environments take on.

    Nice images, nice color.

    Dispite what may say, I do ike a polarizer, especially harsh days and water.

    I have a real challenge shooting the Shuttle launch tuesday at 10:30AM EDT here. Across ten miles of water and the sun angle. Oh what a nightmare. Guess I have to wish for a cloudy day. Not what I had pictured at all. I will shoot it. But not sure what I will get out of that situation.

    In florida the light and weather changes by the minute.

    I think the polarisers work really well - esp. with water too. it makes for quite a marine look.

    And you - the Shuttle launch - OMG !

    I would so like to be there. The sheer noise and presence of that liftoff must be awesome.

    I was in Texas in my late teens and went to the Johnson Space center there. The size of the rockets are truly something to behold. I have always had a love of rocketry and all things space related.

    I know it'll all go well - best of luck with those shots too - your position sounds like a challenge

    Please post your pics ok !
