I was particularly interested to read Sally’s latest post about preferring to use her iphone as opposed to her trusty old Nikon. I, too, have made the transition from my Canon Eos 450 (with which I was never entirely happy) to my iphone 6+ which I’ve had for just over a year now. I am rarely without it and only use the bulky Canon when we’re on an important trip, when I like to have the security of a second camera just in case ….
I use the Lenka app for my black and white photography. The advantage of this little app is that it takes both a black and white photo and a colour one so that if you’re not happy with the results of the black and white one you can always run the colour one through another app to achieve a black and white image. These are all SOOC (straight out of the camera).

water buffalo taking a refreshing dip in the sea
the elephants at the Pinnewala sanctuary in Sri Lanka get a daily dip too
a walk on the beach will blow a few cobwebs away
iced coffee on the beach
maybe you’d prefer a hot cup of Java
the sight of a field of red poppies is always uplifting
as is watching the dancers at a local folk festival
What refreshes you? Is it the sight/sound of water in some form? Is it a drink? a change of scenery?

What does sea mean to you? images of peaceful beaches or waves crashing on the beach in a winter storm? people messing around in boats or earning their living from the sea?
Here are some sea shots taken in Turkey
flamingoes in a sea-fed estuary
crab catching in the Dalayan delta
and some in Lynmouth, UK
