Looking for something colourful today, I found these tiny leaves, autumnal and yet uplifting, with their stunning combination of shape and line, together with vivid colour. They are only small – this is, once again, a macro shot. It’s all about using these… [author points to eyes]It's kind to share!
At the heritage railway not far from where I live, the toilet facilities at the main station, while more than adequate during most of the hours when the station is open to the public, are apt to be insufficient on ‘event days’ rendering additional provisions necessary. One member of the management team has his own particular brand of humour, hence the sign in the photograph.
(I have also heard references to ‘spare gentlemen’ although I’ve never seen a corresponding sign.)
As I’ve already mentioned, I recently had a terrific opportunity to photograph some amazing insects, many of them possessing the most marvellous camouflage. Here is another example – I’m afraid I can’t give you its exact name, right now. A most useful characteristic of many of these insects (from a photographer’s point of view) is that they don’t move around all that fast; their camouflage, rather than their speed, is their main defence.
For this photo, I used a separate flashgun, fitted with a home-made light diffuser, to simulate a sunlit day.
Today, I looked around my garden to see what flowers had escaped the effect of the frost. This red cyclamen was just about all I could find.
Note the leaf that is included on the left; it is on a sage plant, a popular herb at this time of year!
I found this only today (Sunday.) I didn’t have any very interesting photos this week, owing to pressure of work, and was wondering what to post! This seemed to shout “A mild, wet autumn day” so effectively. (By the way, I didn’t rearrange those leaves – that’s how they were!)It's kind to share!
Last Monday, thanks to my local photographic society, I had the chance to photograph some amazing insects. This is one of them – a type of stick insect. For the most part, they only moved slowly; it was in some cases quite hard to tell which bit of what I saw, as I viewed each arrangement that had been set up for us, was, in fact, the insect!It's kind to share!
A large proportion of glass in architecture, whether old style or modern, is often fascinating. Here, we are back again to my beloved Wollaton Park, Nottingham. This is the view looking up at the roof of the Camellia House, set in the grounds. One of the earliest cast iron glasshouses of its kind, it was built in 1827. It has recently been extensively restored, and is still used for its original purpose.
Buildinds such as this one provide a wonderful display of shape and line – a photographer’s paradise!
When I spotted this tree only today, I wanted to grab some pictures quickly! I thick it’s lovely to find such beauty in what can often be a sad part of the year. Notice that one leaf that is partly yellow; has another leaf been resting just over it, I wonder?It's kind to share!
