The Lantern Room

Here is a photograph from the top of Lydeard Hill in the Quantocks, Somerset, where I walked last weekend. It was a bright day but pretty misty and murky when looking into the distance.

The soft green and purple patchwork colours from the landscape made an interesting – and quite moody – backdrop and I like the way the trees have bent in one direction against the prevailing wind.

Insomnia strikes even with the sound of the ocean doing it’s best to lull you to sleep…This morning it struck at 3.00 am…

Still dark….. and going to be for 2 and a 1/2 hours, so I took my time getting dressed, managing to drag each leg of my shorts into a 15 second process and a further 10 seconds to pick up the camera….I was still on the beach with 2 hours 29 minutes and a few random seconds to go before dawn..

So I through caution to the winds and turned right, and headed South, planning to see how far I could get before it was light enough to shoot.

A Long Way!

Worth it though…A lovely bay in lovely light and a few knackered looking villas, (which always look the best in a photo)…

Enjoy!

These photographs are so beautiful that they seem taken from another world.

I found this photograph and blogger through another blog that I follow. This old house was so inspiring that I just had to share!

I usually refer to this picture as the house on stilts even though I’m not absolutely certain that it is, or ever was, anyone’s residence.  I just think it’s an awfully interesting structure and I like to imagine that someone enjoys living in it.  One day soon I’ll go back to take more pictures of my “stilted house” and when I go I’ll try to learn more about it.

It's a picture of a house

While doing research for a story set in Kiev (Kyive), Ukraine, I came across the photograph of this amazing tree. Since I love seeing what Photoshop filters can do to enhance photographs, I tried them on this wonderful old tree.

“Grünewald’s Oak Age: 800-900 years, named after the famous painter Matthias Grünewald who used to draw fantasy trees.”

I have completed a few themed galleries this weekend.  It was nice to take a couple of hours and work on galleries that reach across my library.

The Winter Wildlife gallery draws on encounters with animals over the last four years.  Some meetings were deliberate as with the snowy owls, where I drove out to find them.  Some meetings were by chance, where I came upon them without planning.

The gallery can be found along with the other new ones, Abandoned Prairie and Into The Mountains on the Portfolios page.

Hi.

As promised, today I continued working with that grayscale photo 🙂

 

(You can click on this image to look at bigger version.

This scene has lots of details, and it was a bit difficult to work with it. But it was a great practice, for sure!

Hope you like it 🙂
