It was hot again today so we went out to Amberly for lunch and some family time. There is a cafe there that Mel and her grandparents often go to so we had a pizza for lunch then went to see the animals that they have for kids to feed. Another great day with Mel and Brylee on day 322 😀
We are house-sitting in a pretty flash gated community for the next month (while we work on our house) and I went for a wander down to the lake with my camera tonight. I was trying to get the reflections from the houses across the water but it’s a bit windy and the results weren’t so great… I turned around to walk back down the path and thought that this little scene would make a good photo. And the long exposure lit up the scene enough to see the detail in the trees behind so I’m happy with the result 🙂 Day 194 done!
This is the path at my parents house and all the cracks are getting filled with moss as it gets damper in winter. I was on the search for a photo today and liked the colours of the moss standing out from the drab greyness of the path. I thought winter would be average for taking photos I’m actually really enjoying it. 🙂 And that’s the shot for day 191!
Today is kinda a bit of a downturn after the photos yesterday that I was quite happy with. But I guess that’s the way with a 365 project – some you will really like, some you wont be so excited about. Anyway, this is a feijoa tree that grows just outside out kitchen and I have seen before but never taken photos of. I didn’t realise that the fruit grew in winter but it’s pretty much the middle of winter and the fruit are still growing away. And it was the coldest morning today so I thought they would have been killed off by now. Odd… Well, that’s it for day 185!
I was driving home this afternoon and drove past the local cricket/football grounds. There are leaves everywhere and the afternoon sun was giving them an awesome glow so I got home, fed Brylee and we bundled up and went for a walk to talk some photos – even ended up watching some football as well. I discovered yesterday that if I use the 2 sec shutter delay and have the bracket exposure setting on, it will take all three photos after the 2 seconds. I had avoided the shutter delay before as I thought I would have to take 3 separate photos and that would take ages but happy to discover I don’t… Add that one to the “new knowledge” box :-). Day 182 down – over the halfway mark tomorrow!! Woo hoo!
This photo pretty much sums up the weather right now… Ice cold wind and trees almost bare apart from a few holding onto their last remaining leaves. I’m not a huge fan of winter but do admit that I like shots like this with a few dead leaves showing the last traces of summer/autumn. And I’m out of time for day 177 so that’s it 🙂
This is a little creek that runs into the lake at a gated community our friends live in. I was sitting in their lounge and I saw this and wanted to see what it would look like in HDR so I grabbed my camera and went for a wee wander. I didn’t notice until I got home and got the photos onto the computer how dark the clouds in the background where but I like the contrast between the peaceful foreground and the somewhat foreboding clouds in the background. And that’s the shot for day 176, thanks for stopping by 🙂
