Photographic efforts. If it's pretty, interesting or unusual and I made it myself, it'll be here.

When the conditions are just so, and you're in the right place.

Not really a high-energy weapon. This is what overtaking a lorry looks like on a long exposure

Against a stormy backdrop a single bird flies for the sun. Go for the hires version for full impact

Unusual

Why do we always try to take the same types of photos? Not all photos have to be pretty to be good. Not all photos have to show happy beautiful scenes.

Interesting

These images aren't necessarily great photos, but each show something interesting.

Lego Kart 3D Wigglygram
If you take two images close together side by side, you can make a crosseyed stereogram. They hurt to view, but you can combine them as an animation to make a wigglygram. The 3D illusion is strong and anyone can see it.

Showerhead
Not a stunning photo, but fairly tricky to take which makes it interesting at least
View image

Splash
A short shutter time and a strong brief flash will freeze motion, showing a world of detail otherwise invisible

Driftworks
Capturing exciting car images isn't as easy as you might think. This is one of my best. Note the smoke pouring off the rear wheels? This is one sideways car!
