Pommy Bastard has sent in this lovely shot of a gold and foggy sunrise on the Cook playing fields.

Stroppygob! Hehe! I love it!! *chuckle*

Many thanks, PB! That’s fantastic.

: )

Oh, yes, you’re right about the link. Damn! Well going to the main website http://cranleighps.act.edu.au and clicking the ‘artshow’ link on the left is working for me, so maybe try it again as there’s a lot of really good information there – I’m actually kind of proud of what has been done with the school site.

The Art Show is from October 16 – 18, 2009 at Cranleigh School, Starke Street Holt.

I’ll send you an email anyhow and we will work something out!

Have a wonderful time, PB! Try and check in from time to time while you’re away if you have a chance.

Amazing photo. Love your work PB!!

Very nice PB … nice collection too 🙂

Having seen what the show is for, I’ve no problem donating my images, I only hope someone thinks they are worth paying money for. On my return I’ll print them off and we can arrange for me to hand them over or mail them.

(When is the show granny, your link gives a 404 error?)

Drop me a line to the e-maim address above, or post information here, and I’ll do my best to oblige.

Will be away as of tomorrow, but will check that address regularly.

Wow, thanks PB. That’s very kind! You can find out all about it at: http://www.cranleighps.act.edu.au/artshow. They have the first newsletter up there now which tells you all about it. I am so excited!

What’s the max size/resolution of pics for RA? Apologies if it is in the instructions and I missed it. Not that I have any worth sending in anyway…

Send it in around 800 pixels to the largest side if you can.

We’ll then let our image host downsample to the 400 which is the most that will work with our current format.

Look forward to seeing them!

PB – just want to add my voice to your group of fans.

Love your pics, buddy. Haven’t yet seen one I didn’t like!

Thanks folks for your wonderful comments, I’m touched.

I’ve put bigger versions here, and I think you can download them, please feel free.


If you want the full sized images, which are a bit huge, I’ll have to redo them, but I’m happy to do that.

You can contact me at stroppygob(at)hotmail.com

Granny, I’ve never sold a print in my life, I’m happy to give them away. If your show is for charity I’ll happily donate a couple of dozen, and the charity can have the cash. (Unless it’s a charity I disprove of, obviously.)

Caveat; this is all a bit rushed as the day after tomorrow I’m off to the homeland for a few weeks, so do not expect any replies until the end of July 🙂

PB, would you be interested in selling some of your prints at the Cranleigh Art Show this year? We are looking for artists. Danman may have a couple of his shots there.

ohhh, the different tones/colours looks good

beautiful and serene. ditto on the desktop image request.

Very nice PB!

That is an awesome photo. People would purchase that as a print. Should look into it Pommy Bastard.

Nice 🙂

It’s pretty.

Great picture… is there a higher res pic that Pommy Bastard could make available?

I would love to use this as my desktop pic on my computer.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the sun rise through the mist before. It’s the prettiest thing!
