Still Blurry but Closer

I was over on 35hunter reading one of Dan's series on close-up equipment (yes, I know, my last post was about not being overly concerned with equipment but generally I read most of what Dan posts, even when it's equipment focused - and this is one of the types of photography where a variety of… Continue reading Still Blurry but Closer

Thursday Doors: Many Storms

This week has largely been grey, windy, wet, and frankly making me feel like getting started on the hibernation that bears are known for. Officially the UK was in the grips of Storm Ali over the last couple of days with gusts of wind exceeding 80mph in the north of the country. Not hurricane or… Continue reading Thursday Doors: Many Storms

Barn Doors (for people)

The sort of doors that I'm likely to come across are those in a more rural and less populated setting. Basically, I'm not often found in areas where a lot more humans like to gather, build towns or cities and live fairly close to each other and therefore the exposure to fancy doors protecting the… Continue reading Barn Doors (for people)

This may have started… Continue reading Thursday Doors

Devon and Cornwall quite famously sit on a massive amount of granite, with the tors of the nearby moorlands made out of outcrops of the hard rock. You will often also come across standing stones on the moors, the plentiful and hard wearing material perhaps fashioned and arranged by ancient hands for ceremonial religious uses,… Continue reading Granite Gatepost, Warbstow

Wilsey Woods misty firebreak

I don't always take my camera with me on the daily dog walk. I carried it with me on this morning, even though it was misty, as I had the feeling that some opportunities would present themselves if the mist started clearing. This is the sun breaking through through the mists in one of the… Continue reading Wilsey Woods misty firebreak

Tree on the Wall, Warbstow Bury

A long time ago a Hawthorn germinated and started to grow on top of a Cornish 'fence', a wall to most of the rest of the world. Long after the fence stopped having to do what it was put there for, the Hawthorn remains, although some of it is creating precarious angles. One day it's… Continue reading Tree on the Wall, Warbstow Bury
