    This is the view from my livingroom, so i take loads of photos of it. Quite handy really. Especially good with a tripod.

    Got this effect from shining a flashlight into the lens.

    These are some of the better ones i have taken.

    It is a Canon Powershot A620, which is 7.1M pixels, so i have had to reduce the images for here quite a bit.

    The camera was £250 from a highstreet vendor. The photos look really good at their full res. Should be taking some of the downs here in Bristol soon.

    That it is, unfortunately all the local chavs like to congregate near it by the river. They make quite alot of noise late at night

    Nice pics. I got the same camera for christmas, but haven't really had much chance to play around with it yet, what with exams and work :(

    Looking forward to getting the chance to go out with it though :)

    I agree! It's similar (but more colourful and taken from the other side) than the shot that I took whilst out for a walk a couple of weeks ago.

    Any chance of you posting a full size image so we can see the quality? What you've posted so far looks great though :)
