Wild and erratic temperatures, and from calm to gust in minutes. “Old Man” Winter is not far away, but there are “strands” of time standing still.
A trip to Woodend and back with just the idea of a relaxing drive and shoot anything that happened to interest was the only goal Stefan & I had while having a day of chilling out on the road and chatting. A slip into Trentham Falls was wonderful however I gather from some others that it normally has more water running down it. Yet another sign that we’re still not far out of drought if at all! An amusing moment was watching another visitor to the area taking her Furbag for a walk on a lead and watching it play with the water. Unfortunately I couldn’t get quite enough light in to get a good shot of them.
Although it’s still Summer, you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s some sort of “neither here nor there” cross between Summer & Autumn. At least this wheelbarrow of Apples doing what Apples do when left to their own devices makes me think in that way. Seems we are getting the “budget” Summer this year.
Not being one to appreciate over 26 degree temperatures, I’d much rather be looking at this outside my Study window again…
I remember when I first bought this Sigma 50mm F1.4 lens, and was quite excited with the possibilities. I found this old shot from about 18 months ago taken while on a random walk. Quite nice for handheld which I learned was quite a challenge with this lens at the wide open apertures!
Bit too hot here to be outside shooting, but it did encourage me to have a session of cleaning up the catalogue. Found a couple of early shots I quite like, and cleared out some I don’t consider worth keeping now. Looking at the early shots, there’s no doubt that more Mega Pixels helps when you are Macro Shooting and also want to crop it in a bit more after.
I’ve also chosen to move the watermark to the centre based on what I’ve seen on other sites, hopefully it’s not too distracting now that it’s in the centre.
