I woke up early this morning to pouring rain! Not happy because the weather has been awesome recently but I suppose it had to come sometime because it is spring after all… It’s been raining pretty hard most of the day but stopped just after dinner tonight so I went out to take a shot and was on the look for a good shot with some raindrops. Our ivy has been featured in a few shots this year and again today. The glossy leaves meant that the rain formed cool droplets on the leaf so this is shot for day 323…
I went for a walk down to the beach tonight and even though it was pretty windy and cold, it was awesome! The waves were pretty loud and the beach was deserted but I like the beach when it’s windy and stormy so enjoyed the walk. This is the estuary where I walked on the way back and it was pretty calm because it’s sheltered by the sand dunes. Living the dream at the beach on day 316 😀
We stopped by Pegasus Town on our way home from Christchurch this afternoon just as it was starting to fine up and luckily I had my camera in the car. This is one of the features of the town and pretty flash so thought it would make a good photo. We’ve been here a few times for BBQ’s and it’s pretty nice and even though it wasn’t actually very warm, it looks nice in the photo for day 279!
It’s my birthday today and my wife took me away for a night in Arakoa (Google it for those from outside NZ…). Had a great day and an awesome night to top it off! We went out for dinner and a walk then grabbed the camera and took a few shots on our way back to the motel. What a day for the 264th day of this project 🙂
PS. Spot the smiley face…
I was really struggling to find something to take a photo of so when I opened the cupboard and saw a wine glass I got it out. Inspired by a blog I follow (http://jljfoto.wordpress.com/2011/09/11/resonate/) I decided to put some water in it and take a few shots. It wasn’t really happening for me so I thought I would try some shots with food colouring and luckily we had some. Photoshop wasn’t working for some reason so I had had to use Picnik and tried out the collage option as it was what I wanted to do in Photoshop. I actually quite like the result though and could see it hanging on a wall somewhere… Maybe one day. Anyway, that’s the shot for day 255!
This little plant is growing around our house and looked kinda cool with the water droplet caught in the light thrown from the flash. I was experimenting with Photoshop and liked this pattern fill with the opacity way down because it looks like a print on canvas… It’s been a hugely busy weekend so I’m tired and off to bed now. Day 239 done!
