Normally I concentrate on the small things when I’m out taking photos. You might see me staring closely into the hedgerow looking for Violets, or chasing butterflies, trying to get a shot. Today I decided to look for bigger things, along with my normal close-ups. This lone tree on the edge of a ploughed fieldContinue reading “Different”
On Tuesday I went for a walk at Cors Caron. This is a lovely nature reserve which is “an untamed mix of raised bog, reedbed, wet grassland, ponds, streams and patches of woodland”. In the summer it will be teeming with Dragonflies and Damselflies, as well as Common Lizards and the occasional Adder (if you’reContinue reading “Heron Stalking”
I don’t really do landscapes. However, the weekly photo challenge says “show us your best establishing shot…” so I’m going to look at it that way rather than a traditional landscape. So here’s an establishing shot before I looked more closely at a patch of Celandines. It’s still pretty close up but you can seeContinue reading “Landscapes?”
I have pondered for a while whether I have any photos that fit with this week’s photo challenge. Yet again I have to tear myself away from my preferred small world and look a bit further afield. That’s why they call it a challenge I guess! I took this photo last month at Cors Caron,Continue reading “Half & Half”
This is where I live, where I walk, where I poke around in hedgerows, squat (painfully) photographing tiny things, and occasionally I change my lens and look up at the beautiful blue sky, and thank my lucky stars that I live in such a lovely place.
Just because I usually take macro shots, it doesn’t mean I can’t do landscapes … I just do them on a small scale! Photos can have foreground and background interest like this one… A tiny caterpillar munching on leaf giving foreground interest and in the background we have ‘rolling hills’ of reddish gold due toContinue reading “Tiny Landscapes”
No rain today! It was very cold though. I spent quite a long time outdoors as my daughter was at a Show Jumping competition, and then later we went for a walk. My fingers and toes were getting so cold! But it was lovely to see some blue sky for a change 🙂 This imageContinue reading “Blue Sky”
About a week & a half ago, Bruce and I went to Ynyslas sand dunes which are just up the coast from where we live in mid-Wales. As you’d expect, we had the cameras out and I took a fair few photos, but when I looked at them back at home, I was a bitContinue reading “Dramatic Dunes”
A couple of days ago we went for another visit to Cors Caron. I’ve shown you photos of it in winter and in summer, and now we have spring … well, we would if it really was properly spring! At least these photos are sunny, and the ponds were only a little bit icy thisContinue reading “Cors Caron in Spring (sort of)”
After taking the photos I posted on Saturday the weather turned cloudier so the next few shots (at a different beach) came out kind of moody, so I decided they suited monochrome better than colour, as to be honest there was barely any colour in them!
