Life through the Lens (23 January 2022)

I’ve been sharing my own photos now for eighteen months so I thought the end of the year was a good time to call it a day.

I just loved the Alpenglow here. Not visible as I took the shot, but picked up by the sensor. This is the summit of the Matterhorn, Monte Cervino, Mont Cervin, call it what you will, standing at 4,478m on the Swiss/Italian border. One of the most imposing images I ever saw.

Here’s a wider shot, taken with a different lens and different filters:

The Waiting Game

I had a bit of time this weekend so thought I’d write. So I headed over to DeviantArt and found the image below. My flash came in at about 950 words, about a 6-7 minute read, so be warned!

I doubt I’ll have time to be around much until I get it sorted. Some posts are scheduled. Not many.

This peaceful, pastoral scene, taken at the end of August up in Norfolk, is one of my published photos. I permitted the UK’s National Farmers’ Union to use it in one of their publications.

I can still se that telegraph pole; it annoys me now. I should have airbrushed it out.

Rape in full bloom, and as you can imagine, there was an enormous downpour a few minutes after I took the shot. I love the contrast of the colours.

Stourhead

Stourhead is a National Trust estate and stately home about an hour from us. We used to visit at least annually, and I dug out an old photo and started playing:
