There’s something pleasing about a lone tree silhouetted against the sky. You might say it is a harmonious photograph. Harmonious: forming a pleasing and consistent whole. Or you could just say it looks nice… And later, the sunset was burning up the sky behind the Beech tree in the garden so I grabbed another silhouette shot.…… Continue reading Of Land and Sky
Right now it’s Christmas morning and it’s very quiet in my house. I’m the only one up. I’m not complaining as I like a quiet morning to potter about, drink tea, read blogs and catch up on Facebook etc. Right now it’s just me and the trees and the cat 🙂 Later the teens will…… Continue reading Christmas Morning
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.
This week’s photo challenge set me thinking I’m sure I have some nice silhouettes somewhere! I had a good poke around my archives and found these sunsets from back in April. Trees and roofs silhouetted against the sky: And normally electricity wires in a photo may not be liked, but I quite like the contrast…… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette
The weather has begun to improve thankfully, but it was a bit late in the day to go looking for spring flowers to photograph. I have my fingers crossed for tomorrow.

A quick set of photos taken from just outside the front door, put together in HDR Efex to allow the sky and leaves to both show up clearly. It’s a little bit odd because of a lot of ghosting as the leaves were blowing but I think it captures the scene quite well.
I’m not at work today so I decided to do some more experimenting with time-lapse. This time it was daylight which is helpful, and I had some cloud moving across the sky which makes it a whole lot more interesting. I actually did this through the living room window, which means there are a few…… Continue reading Cloud & Wind Time-Lapse
emerging from the shadowed forest the sky is vast an open endless opalescent freedom so far away and yet I trail a finger touch my tongue and taste the soft pink haze of cloud
Today we had a little wander round Aberystwyth while we had some time to spare. We walked round the castle and along the seafront a little before it was time to go again. I liked the look of the castle ruins against the beautiful sky, and I’ve used HDR Efex Pro to pull together 3…… Continue reading Aberystwyth Castle
