    Not far from me there is a reservoir which is used for different types of canoe racing. The building you can see in the first two photos is a school for elite sportsmen and women. They'd just hosted the national championships and these tents caught my eye.

    Colin, those tents caught my eye, too - they're wonderful! I keep expecting a knight to step forth - or to peek inside to see someone else from times long past.

    What a picturesque and interesting part of the world you live in and around. I'm quite jealous, incase you couldn't tell.:wink:

    Yeah, the first shot of the tents is really fine (I like the single row more than the parallel rows for some reason), although there's something really freaky about those tents. I guess for someone who grew up in the US at a certain time, they look frighteningly like KKK hoods. They have nothing to do with anything like that, but I have to confess I had that immediate reaction. No fault of the photograph - just old leftover personal baggage I guess.

    I really wish you'd gone in close and tried to do something with the stack of orange chairs lying on the table too. Some really interesting shapes in there - it took me a little while to figure out what I was looking at and I think there are some amazing images hiding in that stack of chairs somewhere!

    Thanks Ray. I included the chairs simply as a contrast to the other colours in the frame. By the way, I have photos of the Easter processions in Aviles from a few years ago - and they would really freak you out (as you say). Unfortunately they were not taken in Micro 43 as it didn't exist then - but here are a few examples (taken with Panasonic FZ7).

    Yikes! These are probably where the KKK got their design ideas. I'm kidding... They do, however, make me think of The Spanish Inquisition.:frown::eek: but that could just be my imagination.

    Great shots, Colin!
