..and the famous Bucks blue mist ;-)

The badgers have had great fun digging up the edge of the field, I would like to sit and watch them one night..when it's a bit warmer! More, less blue, pics in the comments below

The sun shone very briefly this morning. The Chiltern Hills look stunning at this time of year, well worth a visit :-)

...a lovely afternoon for a walk in the Chilterns...

...and unless the weather changes, you're going to be seeing a lot more of these!

And below, what a difference 50 minutes makes....

I've worked third shift for seven years now. Every morning, I take a few minutes to watch the dawn break. I've probably seen more sunrises than most. Its a magical moment when the dark mysterious night loses its grip and a new day begins. There is a gentle silence, there are rich deep colors embracing you, there is a feeling of calm anticipation that only exist for a few moments between the Was and the Will.

Its Friday!!!


I'm sure I heard them mention 'high pressure' and 'sunshine' on the weather sooo hoping to see a Brimstone or two!

Have a brilliant weekend everyone :-)

So how about........

I bee cropped to the extreme..

I bee outgoing not incoming....

I bee fed up with the weather......


I bee on here instead of doing what I'm meant to be doing :)

A phase of the moon scientifically known as the Sliders Moon - meaning over sharpened and over processed...

Should it head to the recycle bin, or Sliders Sunday...?!




Yes you!!

Turn your iPad around so you can see it properly.

I'm waiting.......!

Happy Sliders Sunday Everyone !!!


Best viewed portrait :)

I Love You Nik Color Efex and Lightroom 5

HSS :)

Golden light shines through classroom window - race home - wispy clouds look promising - grab camera bag - hope kids have remembered their door key - race against time to get there before the light goes - realise that sunset is not going to be brilliant - but how good does it feel to be stood on a hill, just me, and my camera :)


A nettle stung me on the cheek when I took this, wasn't expecting that today!

Similar to a recent upload, I do love that dramatic light though.

Thanks for all your comments and faves, they are very much appreciated :-)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Bluebells. St Leonards, Wendover

Portland, from Lulworth Ranges.

Don't look too closely - overprocessed, and then processed a little bit more :-)

...peering over a fence, one that even I couldn't climb over! Loved the bark, the beech leaves, the textures the colours, the ravens cronking overhead. It was good to be out..x

Right!! Who said it looks like an explosion in a Smarties factory???!!


A tricky photoshoot - my tripod developed droop!!

It refused to hold my camera portrait. Manually focused because auto wouldn't. And I couldn't drink the wine until I'd got the picture right!


Happy New Year! To all my lovely Flickr Friends :-)

Very blowy today, was getting really buffeted by the wind taking this ... It's got the light I crave though, love dramatic light!

Am putting on two pics today, one bright and one beautiful. Think you'll be able to work out which is which!

No sun for photography this afternoon, so will plunder the archives. Still have loads of holiday photos from May to sort - so here goes ...

bench - north ave, westfield, nj

Odd looking body armour going on here...I could have done with some of that, went into the zone watching these guys and got so stung by nettles :-O

The one below in the comments has such a cheeky 'smile' :-)


Not sure what type it is....Eddieee?!!!

Its a Common Darter, thanks E the B :)


Best NOT viewed large......!


The sun did. Brightly. For 30 seconds. And then it rained ...

sunrise over bogue sound - emerald isle, nc


or, this may have been called "heart of the sunrise", the song by yes, considering it is valentine's day.

if you have nasty weather today, please be safe

turbine - smithsonian udvar-hazy national air & space museum - chantilly, va

If it doesn't speed up soon, I'm taking a Flickr mini-break .......


View LARGE or I'll send him round to eat YOUR lettuces :)

One from our hols, seeing as non of my pics taken in Tring Museum came out this afternoon...even using a silly ISO :-/

It's very gloomy in there.

"Can I bring my tripod next time?" I asked

"'s a bit of a health and safety hazard, is it a small one?"

One from before the heatwave, think he'd be a bit crispy if he were out today....!

Happy Sliders Sunday everyone :)

If I click 'image' and 'flip' in Photoshop, will the spider magically appear on the right side of the web?!


RSI is making my hands hurt :( so although I will continue to upload photos and view yours, I will have to stop commenting on yours for a few weeks (shame..its half the fun!) So please don't feel you have to comment on mine.


Platforms 6 and 7, St Pancras Station to be precise.

Or St Pancreas as I always call it.

I took several photos up against the (mucky) glass to lose the fence, but I like the Stained Glass thingy in this one.

Tweaked a bit in Color Efex. And straight...ish :-)

...a new page layout, one I can't opt out of! If there's one thing you can be sure of, there will be another re-design in about a year. Someone will have the bright idea to move the comments underneath the photo, and change the page to white..! Anyway 'Heals - looking up' is the last of my London pics. Go on, click on those diagonal arrows and view it large!

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE NEW LAYOUT, CHANGE THE LANGUAGE AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR 'RECENT ACTIVITY' PAGE...IT REVERTS TO THE 'OLD' STYLE LAYOUT, AND THE COMMENTS UNDER THE PHOTO STAY IN ENGLISH! SPREAD THE WORD!! a 'twangy bit' - I like that Colin! I wonder if this would have turned out different without the two glasses of wine and Marillions Invisible Man on at full volume??!

You think this is weird you should see the red version..... :-o


midtown nyc from weehawken, nj

...yes, they are back! and with a new attitude!


Buy my art at Imagekind!


It doesn't make a difference what temperature a room is, it's always room temperature.

Okay! Okay! Lane Photography ...

I could see a lady walking towards me with her dogs, I wanted to 'catch' her in my web..

but didn't quite pull it off. She scowled at me and called her dogs away - not seeing the cobweb she must have thought a crazy woman was trying to get a sneaky shot of her!


So now you know what processed frog looks like :)

Grasses. Tweaked.

And its not even Sunday :)

there you are below the george washington bridge - fort lee, nj

for fun, x's axis is the detail of the top of this tower at night the jaunty angle of those buildings! No amount of correction in LR would fix it, but at least Portland Bird Observatory is upright...ish!
