Another shot from my walk yesterday. The sun on the leaves was lovely and I was happy to get some pretty bokeh as well as the lovely colours 🙂
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 fewContinue reading “Cloud & Wind Time-Lapse”
I’ve moved offices recently from one campus to another and it’s good to be back here as I used to work on this campus 5 years ago and enjoyed it here. Yesterday, I went for a walk around the grounds which are still lovely although a bit neglected these days. There are some lovely blossomContinue reading “Blossom”
The trees are putting on a nice spring show too, to compete with the new flowers. I’m not sure what kind of tree the catkins belong to, but the first and third photos are of a yew tree, and these are their flowers which will later develop into seed cones which look like berries (butContinue reading “Spring Trees”

There are still a few remnants of autumn around and about, leaving a splash of warm bright colour in a drab landscape. It’s mainly Beech leaves that cling on for a long time giving us a break from the grey.
in the hills the trees wear mist shawls draped over their bony shoulders tucked up to their lichen covered ears in the valleys the trees wear mist skirts dragging low on the ground wrapped round stiff legs that ache with cold by the sea the trees wear mist burqas covered up from head to toeContinue reading “mist fashions”
More trees today – but this time close-ups looking at the details of bark …
I love the lines of trees, and paths leading into trees … so I got a bit carried away on a woodland walk yesterday and took lots of photos 🙂 It was our one day of sunshine, so there were some nice shadows as we reached the sunnier side of the woods. Today we’re backContinue reading “Woodland Walk”
