blue

Not the picture I was going to post today…I had a great shot of a rabbit in the local graveyard…unfortunately, for the second time recently, I hadn’t put the SD card in and so didn’t get anything…so popped out into the garden and spotted this bee…


We’ve had some really poor sunrises over the last few weeks. We have either had flat grey skys…and it just gets brighter, but no less grey or we have had brilliant clear blue sky, which just means a flat orange colour…and a lot cooler than you want it to be when stood around outside.

Today’s, admittedly, was not a whole lot better, but at least there were some shades of red with the orange light blinking through the flat grey skies! It was still cold enough for a frost though!


After 3 days of mobile photographs it was nice to get back to my “proper” camera. We had a camera club meeting this morning and as we left I notice this blue fork in the garden. When I processed it I decided to have a go at that colour popping processing and quite liked the effect…but also really quite liked the full colour so I did one half way in-between, and really quite liked that version…but which one to publish? “Bugger it” I thought – triptych!


I recently got a new phone – a Galaxy S7 (not the version that spontaneously self-combusts 😉 ) and have finally got around to setting it up with Lightroom Mobile and the ability to shoot Raw images. It took me forever (due to my inability to read instructions) to work out how to get the edited images from the phone into my desktop version of Lightroom…but managed in the end (and still haven’t read the instructions…result 😉 )


I walk past this tree most mornings and the crows are normally on the field pulling worms, today they didn’t seem to want to leave the tree and the 3 large nests that are in that tree.


These aerials were full of starlings until they spotted me, then there was a mass exodus…these three returned though


I was in Great Yarmouth on business (I know – last month California and Texas, this month North Norfolk – globe trotter 😉 ) today and had 10 minutes at lunchtime to pop down to the beach…which, on a cool (but bright) November day was, not surprisingly, deserted.

It was still nice to take in a bit of sea air though…

Horrible weather found me mooching around the workshop for a subject. It really was the colours that caught my eye and the repetition…I have no idea what the plugs are used for (other than it will be electrical…possibly)

328/366 A tasty bit of cheese

I like a nice bit of cheese. I’ve currently got some Castello Blue cheese…a sort of Blue Brie if you will. Now I know a lot of you will be furiously tutting that it’s not a nice piece of Wensleydale, or proper Blue Stilton…but for an everyday cheese it does a job, a good job to be fair. Now, with all that said, it’s quite an eye opener when you have a look at a fresh piece of (any) blue cheese close up and find that it’s a bit furry 😉
