Lynmouth

A few miscellaneous postings this week before I start a new series next Monday.

This was taken during our visit to the North Devon resort of Lynmouth during June, 2007.  This is higher up the village with the river  running down in to the harbour just round the bend.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad. I showed a picture some time ago taken at the entrance to the harbour looking back this way.

Another place I would love to visit, Brian. I declare, you have them everywhere!
Brian Walbey: We might not have a large country compared with yours Ginnie but there are some lovely places in it, this is one of them.

You certainly visit some picturesque locations Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, this is a very nice place to visit and it has a sister village at the top of the cliffs off to the left called Lynton that some of us have featured before.

A lovely image of a charming place Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, no doubt you will be familiar with Lynmouth it not being too far from you.
Nice photo.

I have just told Ron that I was sorting old postcards yesterday and found one just like his SC entry for today. I also found one just like this, of Lynmouth, but in sepia from the pre-war era.
Is someone looking over my shoulder?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, often tings like you describe happen without any sensible explanation.

Nice one Brian...a wouldn't mind a few like this in my miscellaneous folder.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ray.
A very nice shot to start the week off Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bernie.
Lovely composition, with depth and bags of detail. I hope the low water level, isn't a global warming aftermath smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much for your comment. In the winter I believe this river runs a lot stronger and in August, 1952 the famous Lynmouth Flood happened when a lot of people died and some buildings were destroyed by this river.
Looks very peaceful now but it must have been horrendous back in the flood. Well captured Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, being in that flood wouldn't bear thinking about I imagine.

Nice, Brian. Makes me think of the scenes on tins of goodies around holiday. Of course, it causes you to recycle the tin forever..:o)
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Jennie, nut this is a very picturesque little village.

Oh yes, this must be a beautiful town (Is there a cliff path to Lynton? I have to look at my map) - I suppose it is just low tide- a lovely composition and perspective- and allover the colourful flower bunches, a fine speciality of old merry England!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. There is a cliff path, the main road and a Cliff Railway which you can see more of here http://www.cliffrailwaylynton.co.uk/
Muy bonita, muy bien remarcados los detalles, parece una postal. Saludos
Brian Walbey: Gracias mucho

Very clear shot Brian. It's hard to imagine now how that river must have been running wild in the great flood.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid. It must have been terrifying, I have seen some film on TV, it looked awful.
wonderful shot and pping Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tim.
I know this place quite well..A lovely shot of it Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.
Good composition Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Albert.
Some grand opportunities for photos in Lynmouth Brian, nice one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks les. I must admit to taking a lot of shots while we were there.
Looks as though you've given it some heavy saturation with an editor - makes it look almost like a painting. Very sureal effect.
Very appealing result.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. Like a few others on SC I have downloaded the Topaz Plug-in for Photoshop/Elements and used that. Unfortunately it isn't a free product, it costs about £40.00.
