I have a thing for sunsets and I find my Nokia N8 captures them pretty well. I love the beautiful blend colours that smother the sky in the evening. Here in the East of England the land is flat and the skies huge. Instead of taking landscape photos, I call them cloudscapes. I took this photo on Sunday 25th March just before 7pm. There are a few spots around the village that are excellent for capturing the dying sun.
I was a touch late as I wanted to find the sun a little higher in the sky, but hey, there’s always another sunset just around the corner!
Hey there dear blog reader! It’s Friday so I’m a happy smilin’ dude today! I’ll be posting a new instalment of Arcane Insane later this evening but in the meantime I thought I’d share a few photo’s with you!
For some strange reason our tomato growing efforts always seem to produce the tastiest harvest but not until mid to late September. It’s been this way for years now, we plant them at the right time, they have plenty of light and water and fertilizer, but they just take so dang long to grow! Well worth the wait though, these babies are surrrrrweet!
Recently we’ve had some cracking sunsets in our village. I took this one outside the bank just after 7pm. No camera trickery or Photoshop stuff here. The sun looked like a big ball of stuff floating above the horizon!
This is a beautiful stone dragon. It’s hidden away in a friend’s garden, deep in slumber. Dragons, especially baby ones, are shy creatures and turn to stone when anyone spots them. I love how it seems to blend in with its surroundings, pretending to be a mere statue, but anyone who watches Game of Thrones knows, here be dragons!
And finally a lovely photo of our young girly furbaby, Tilly. We were out walking the dogs and stopped to pick black currents, Tilly decides to offer her opinion of all that waiting around business! What a sweetie!
I’m a big sky/sunset photo fan! If I ever save enough money I’d love to buy a quality camera and some gear to take better landscape photos. Maybe one day, for now I’m happy snapping away at these glorious scenes.
Taken just outside our village last week using my Nokia N8 camera phone. I’m taking a series of photos of the same field throughout the year so hopefully I’ll have one when the corn changes to a lush gold colour. With any luck I’ll capture one with a field of snow sometime in the winter.
