Guernsey - Vazon Beach, Dogs, Photographers and Surfers

A beautiful sunny afternoon to visit Vazon Beach - not enough wind for good surfing but a bit of activity and lots of dogs (Golden Retriever pic for Matt and Ellie). We walked to the beach from Cobo (penultimate image - our hotel is second large building from the right) passing Fort Hommet.

Guernsey - Moulin Huet

Friday was one of my favourite locations but one that is so difficult to photograph because of the direction of light and the dark rocks. It was where Renoir painted many images including Moulin Huet Bay.

Guernsey - Castle Cornet

On Thursday afternoon, we had a very interesting tour from Steve around Castle Cornet, which has a 800-year history, culminating in the building of a Cold War retreat in the centre of the Citadel.  We also spent a bit of time on the beach under the causeway and I was delighted to find Anemonia viridis, Snakelocks Anemone, with their fluorescent green tentacles tipped with purple sting cells. All but first two taken with the Sony rx100 IR camera either converted to b/w or left with in colour.

Guernsey - Le Gouffre and Jerbourg Point

On Thursday, we was spent a lovely time with Jan and David drinking coffee, walking along the cliff path at Le Gouffre and admiring the views and an obliging Kestrel at Jerbourg Point. It was our first sunny day so I put my new polariser to work on the first view.

Guernsey - Portait Evening

Guernsey Spectrum Photographic Club did us proud in arranging five models to recreate the 1940s around the photogenic streets of St Peter Port. Unfortunately heavy rain curtailed our activities but I still managed to get some what I feel are evocative shots. I worked mainly with Dave Hyatt. (More to follow )
