Poking through the woods

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

We went out for a walk about a week ago it was such a lovely Saturday and it had been a while since I had the chance to do some proper photography that this was my chance to do some catching up. The photo below was taken about a mile or two from my (new) house.

A few observations: When shooting under a woodland canopy your manual settings which were spot on out in the open suddenly go completely out of whack, if you don't really care about illuminating the tree frame then meter for the background, otherwise you'll need to bump up the ISO quite a bit (and I really don't like noise)

Also at first I thought I'd set this one as a monochrome picture, playing with wide contrast differences but looking at it with colour again I think I prefer it that way.

So here you are, Carnethy Hill on a bright autumn afternoon.

Status Check

Friday, October 12th, 2018

By now you've probably all heard about Google+ closing down for consumers in August 2019. I just wanted to let you all know that I intend to continue posting my weekly flower pictures here until I am no longer able to, at which point posts will shift to my blog. Details on that to come on a later post.

Meanwhile I'm on holiday for just over a week so I'm looking forward to a bit of rest and catching up with my projects and other things around the house I need to do.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend, despite all the hurricanes and the weather going crazy worldwide.

Recovering – Please Wait

Friday, October 5th, 2018

You know when your computer crashes and the operating system needs to do a full system check to find out if anything got corrupted in the process? That's kinda how I'm feeling right now. I guess I don't get hurt physically often enough to remember from one time to the next just how long it takes for an injury to heal. Maybe I should go back to doing martial arts…

Falling and rising up again

Friday, September 28th, 2018

Funny week that, spent half of it off work because of some unexpected event that was serious enough to not just keep me away from work but from my workshop too, only been back to my project today.

I'll say this for this week though, be sure to always give thanks to those who help you. Haven't felt so grateful for a long time.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Talvi Tuli (Winter Came)

Friday, September 28th, 2018

I'd make other Game of Thrones jokes if I knew more about it but that's the best you're gonna get for this picture I'm afraid.

And in case you're wondering, Stark here is a hardware retailer for professionals much like ScrewFix here in the UK
