A Cormorant paid us a visit Spinnaker Tower in the distance Starting from the top: Whilst we were fishing off the Haslar wall in Portsmouth a few months back, we spotted a Cormorant fishing too. It was a great sight and I only wish I had a better lens, but in the end after a bit of cropping the phot came out quite well. That's the Cormorant again in the bottom photo. I then decided to take a picture of the Spinnaker tower on the water front at Gunwharf Quay, not a truly impressive photo I must admit. Then I took a couple of wonky photos... one of the sailing yachts on the water and the other of the water front and some quite nice looking clouds. This is early days with the new Canon 450D so give me time, the pictures will definitely get better!
These are a couple of extremely pretty Wrass that we caught whilst fishing at Stokes Bay in Portsmouth. We had a great day, 7 in total, but unfortunately they were all little wrass so we never got to take any home for supper! They are incredible looking fish to be honest. I think they have very similar markings to tropical discus fish. Mine (the top photo) was definitely the biggest of all of them, however much my boyfriend argued!

The second picture is the section I cut out of the original in Paint Shop Pro X2, I then put that on to a black and white version I had created, aligned them as best I could and then created the top image.
It took me forever to do that with the magic wand tool, I am getting steadily quicker though!
