My Sunday Photo: 24 May 2015

MSP150524Last Monday was wet. How do you say “It’s raining, but that’s OK…” in a photo? As some of you know, I often take pictures of flowers in the rain, a subject of which I am very fond. But I wanted a change, so I looked at this smallish pine tree. It’s all about noticing, isn’t it?

MSP150517Today, my Sunday photo is really a question for you: Can a mistake make art? This is a highly over-exposed shot of the centre of a flower, taken while experimenting with the power of the flashgun!

What do you think?

MSP150510Old walls, like this one, fascinate me. This is actually part of an old railway bridge. Trains passing underneath might have taken troops, or supplies, on the first part of their journey to France in 1914. In contrast, we’re looking at this year’s new growth of ivy (the paler leaves.)

Those bricklayers knew how to build, all right. It just saddens me that they had to do that work for a pittance. But that is another story.

MSP150503Who doesn’t love, as they say, a candle tree? This shot was taken in the evening, using quite a slow shutter speed, hence the slight blurring – which I think is sometimes not an undesirable effect. Large, old trees make me think, too. If they could talk, what stories they would have to tell!

My Sunday Photo: 26 April 2015

MSP150426Taken last Monday, this is the first time I’ve managed to capture an image of earth-shine. This is the phenomenon whereby a very faint ‘full moon’ is visible due to the moon reflecting the Earth’s light, back to us. It’s just visible, here.

MSP150419The Lady in Red! I never tire of flowers and raindrops, somehow. And this is a lovely time of year to capture that mixture.

My Sunday Photo: 12 April 2015

MSP150412This Picture was taken yesterday afternoon. Do people still call this the bud haze? I hope they do, because no other term would be so descriptive of such a romantic time of year. In just a day or two, barren-looking woodlands become sacred temples.
