  2. nice set Al, they out there every day for you?
     
  3. Thanks :biggrin:

    There are crews training most days (although usually an hour or so upriver, and often at some unsociable times). Races are on most weekends, although not always nearby :smile:

  7. V nice Al, looks bloody cold!
     
  8. Thanks guys :biggrin:

    It was actually rather temperate for Newcastle, but the overcast dulled the backgrounds somewhat, so I felt B&W suited things best. I did take a couple in colour though:

  9. Good choice on the B&W Al, that actually adds to the feeling of the cold and overcast conditions. I like #1 with the reflectivity of the water, the background in #4 is awesome, and in #10 it looks pretty scary since that water in the background doesn't look safe for a scull at all!
     
  10. Cheers Steve :biggrin:

    #1 was the first crew off in the morning, so they were the only ones where the water was undisturbed enough for that kind of reflection :smile:

    #10 is something of an illusion caused by the B&W - the 'water' is actually mud :smile:
