Transition

After my last picture using relative simplicity I have gone to the other extreme. Autumn is now arriving and the countryside around us is of course preparing for the shorter days and colder times. I think I've managed to get many of the colours of the landscape around us now into this picture of some… Continue reading Transition

Calm during the Storms

The weather (and the political world) have been providing some dramatic entertainment this week. As I mentioned in my post on Thursday, our walks outdoors this week have been more about dodging the strong winds and ferocious showers than any photography. So I thought I'd post up a picture for the weekend which was taken a… Continue reading Calm during the Storms

Sharp & Incoming at Crackington

Is anyone tired of abstract sea and waves pictures yet? A slight difference in this one.

This has given me an effect that I… Continue reading Sharp & Incoming at Crackington

Even so, I have to… Continue reading Abstract Additions (and more normal stuff)

Some background… Continue reading Getting it all wrong accidentally

Getting it all wrong on purpose

I was chatting with an artist friend yesterday about how I get some of the abstract results I have been posting recently 'in camera'. To be honest I don't usually do 'technical' or post about my 'process' but, with her questions and a recent comments question about the same, I thought I could do an… Continue reading Getting it all wrong on purpose

Offshore Mists Two

I posted a straight black and white shot of the Cambeak headland at Crackington wearing its little offshore cloud yesterday. Regular followers will know I've been trying the alternative abstract intentional camera movement technique on pretty much everything as well, so of course I tried it here too. My alone time - well, at least… Continue reading Offshore Mists Two
