Morning Skyliners! Is it just me or does it seem as though the Radisson beach loungers /umbrellas are creeping further along the beach?
Derek, you're right, had more than enough rain this summer? Kielder water, Derwentwater all our local reservoirs are all full. Even the Tyne is riding high today. Malta would love some of our excess water I think!
Beach looking full - 1 month to go & counting.
Viv.more rain today ,I have just about had enough for this summer.
Derek, you're right! I'm sure Malta would love the rain that has fallen here in Throckley since 4 am and it's still falling!! Their ground water tanks would be overflowing methinks.
Aye Viv. It's starting to dry out a bit, we don't have that problem today do we !
Hi Derek, it looks as though the sun is starting to dry the grass out on the far side.
It's all still looking green over the far side, I wonder how long it will last.
Not many folk on the beach this morning 9.30 am malta time though it is a bit damp looking still.
Ian, it is definitely not photo shopped. It is part of a sequence of 15 photos taken at 6 frames per second. I saw them do the same thing at around the same time on the two previous mornings. So on that day I was waiting for them. I actually spoke to one of the pilots the month after. He was very impressed with the photo, but denied there was any showing off. He said they have to train to fly in difficult terrain. Yeah right!!! They were definitely showing off. They left that month after many years of service to Malta. The SAR duties are now in the hands of the AFM.
Looks lovely but is there much to do here
@David Borg: I think they suspected the chopper was Photoshopped...
Isn't that amazing. I have tried uploading that photo at least 5 times since last summer. Then I make a comment on here and two days later it my photo appears.
It seems not all uploaded photos make it into the photo section.Each summer I am fortunate enough to stay at the penthouse apartment precisely where the Golden bay webcam is located (room 2102). Last summer, I uploaded three photos from this location, two of which are in the photo section. The third one was missing. I have tried uploading it a number of times since then, and each time it seems to be censored. It is a photo of the Italian AB212 SAR helicopter passing just a couple of feet above the Għajn Tuffieħa tower. I don't believe this photo is in breach of any of the guidelines for uploading photos. I'm curious why Skyline (Visioray) will not allow it to be displayed.
