Urbex - Planes

Mon Jan 26, 2015, 12:00 AM



Jaunted have named Iceland as being the top travel destination of 2014 - primarily because of the volcano issues they were having a few months back but also because of the Abandoned DC-3 wreck which can be found on Iceland's south coast. It's fast becoming a popular landmark for Urban Explorers - one of our very own Deviants being amongst them. Check out the below taken by sonickingscrewdriver in June 2014.

Abandoned DC-3 Airplane by sonickingscrewdriver

Planes are a very hot topic right now - with so many aviation 'disasters' occurring throughout 2014 many Urban Explorers are wondering whether they will inadvertently stumble across something in months or years to come within the countries or even seas concerned. In slightly unrelated news, there is a video that has gone viral called Postcards from Pripyat which is one of the first aerial footage videos showcasing the abandoned mysteries of Chernobyl.

Urban Exploration is the exploration of man-made structures which consist (usually) of abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. 'Urbex' as it's more commonly known is becoming popular online with the sharing of images and video footage taken from various abandoned places. We have our very own Urbex Community on DeviantART which can be found here. If you would like to see a particular 'Urbex' capture on the Daily Deviations page then just send your suggestion via note to either Kaz-D or 3wyl. Remember that Urban Exploration carries its own risks, if you are considering undertaking it within your country check on any rules surrounding photography and be sure you are aware of things that you can be prosecuted for!


Urbex - Planes
'Urbex' is a monthly news article which focuses on a key word within the 'Urbex' photography gallery. Any top news from the wider Urbex community online is shared along with a featured Deviant and some useful information for getting out and about and exploring places local to you. Don't forget to :+fav: the article if you enjoyed it and show the artists some love by visiting their work and giving some feedback. If you'd like to see a topic covered in 'Urbex' just note CRPhotography with your thoughts. Happy Exploring!

In the night sky by Kaz-D
In the night sky
My first attempt at Night sky photography :) I did this using a technique that TouchedD taught me which I'll be doing a very brief tutorial about soon! The editing afterwards was an important part of the process to bring out the stars but keep the noise levels down. I used a DSLR and a remote shutter, and a tripod. Et voila! We're lucky enough not to have street lights where we live yet (although they are coming) and this was the result.
Enjoy!

Monthly Bake Off - January

Fri Jan 2, 2015, 8:00 AM
NEWmonthly bake off by Kaz-D

The monthly Bake Off!  is designed to make you bake or cook something! You have a whole month to plan what you'd like to do and there are various ways in which you can win some prizes. Last month the theme was Winter Loaf and participants were given a fairly wide scope of what they could do. Well done to those who took the time to enter - here are the winners!

January's Theme


So we've all over-indulged during Christmas? Perhaps! Whether you have or haven't, this recipe will possibly be a great new year dessert for you. You can substitute some of the main ingredients such as 'Soft Cheese' for something like 'Quark' which is available at 0% fat. The recipe below is what I made over the Christmas period and is therefore the more indulgent version... So you've guessed it - this months theme is Cheesecake!

Ingredients
  • 100g digestive biscuits
  • 100g Hobnob biscuits
  • 100g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 125g dark chocolate, broken
  • 750g cream cheese or quark
  • 300ml double cream or fat free yoghurt
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 75ml Baileys cream liqueur (plain or orange truffle).
  • Cocoa powder to dust if desired


Method
  1. Put the biscuits in a plastic bag, then crush with a rolling pin. Melt the butter and 50g chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water (don’t allow the water to touch the bowl), then stir in the crushed biscuits.
  2. Grease the base of a 23cm spring-form cake tin, with the side ring unclasped. Line the base with baking paper, allowing the paper to hang outside the edge of the base. Fasten the clasp of the tin so that the paper hangs outside the clipped base (you will need this for leverage later on) and grease the sides liberally. Press the biscuit crumbs into the base and chill until needed.
  3. Put the cream cheese in a bowl and beat with a spatula. In a clean bowl, lightly whip the cream with the icing sugar, then add to the softened cream cheese, beating until smooth. Add the Baileys and stir well. (Don’t chill at this point.)
  4. Put the remaining chocolate in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water and melt. Set aside to cool to room temperature. At this point you can use an alternative method of decorating such as chocolate stars and golden glitter!
  5. Remove the base from the fridge. Dollop the cheesecake mixture on top and smooth with a palette knife. Drizzle over the melted chocolate, swirling it with a skewer.
  6. Chill for at least 2 hours. To serve, release the cheesecake by running a hot knife around the inside of the tin before unclipping, then use the paper to lift the cake out of the tin and slide onto a serving plate. Peel off the paper and dust with cocoa powder.

Here's what mine looked like (mobile phone shot isn't very good quality!)

I came to deviantART looking for an outlet to share my literature work. Imagine my surprise when I look back now and find myself, eight years later, a Photography Community Volunteer and an avid Photographer. In fact, I've just spent a year taking a handful of Photos every day as part of the 365 challenge. If you want to talk to me about motivation, inspiration, finding things to Photograph and general 'sticking at stuff' then do please give me a shout!

I started off three years ago as the Abstract and Surreal Photography CV, I then took on Conceptual as well and now I cover General Photography along with 3wyl. My every day work, like so many of us here, is unrelated to Art almost completely.

I'm about to embark on a career as a Care Manager for my local council. I just finished studying a degree in Social Policy and Criminology and I'm about to move into my first house with TouchedD! In my spare time (whenever that is) I like to explore the world with TouchedD, poke dead things with a stick and take my dog who has naughty feet, for walkies.

Daily Deviation Guidelines


Photobucket


I'm one of two General Photography CVs!



  • 3wyl and I only take Photography suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps). We also cannot feature anything from a gallery that already has CV looking after it. Check out communityrelations for the latest list.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

How to suggest


Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.
I try and reply to all suggestions made.
