ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

SOMEWHERE. (10/12/12)

What weather! I was out for a walk first thing but beat a hasty retreat as I was being hail blasted. After breakfast the sun came out and so we sallied forth once again. It was another short wander. The squalls are ferocious we were soaked and frozen again.

The light is spectacularly beautiful. The following photographs are HDR and the contrast has been given a good shove or a bad shove depending on ones point of view.

Both these pictures were taken from the shelter of the van. I did take some others but unfortunately they were a wash out.

I’m waiting to hear from the garage so hopefully I’ll get a date for the repairs sometime today.

Now it’s time to have a shower and warm up.

That’s all for today. Keep dry.

  1. Well worked photos Adrian, looks like you've got some 'nice' weather there!! (cold wind and sunny here at present!) You didn't go looking for a pot of gold then?
    Good luck with the van...[;o)

    1. Grace thanks. I have always expected folk to genuflect as I appear. It's yet to happen and time is running out.
      They won't print....too much noise. I may try a de-noise but it is never that effective. A blurred layer and a bit of judicious selection coupled with sharpening with a mask might just work on the second image.

  9. Somewhere over the Rainbow tune playing in my brain ~ lovely spectrum of light. With the mixture of sun and rain here, I saw a rainbow out of my kitchen window recently. Magical!
    Nice to read of your recent trek to enjoy good company and a Christmas luncheon ~ sounded delicious!

    1. Glo, I'm sorry about the ear worm. It was a grand meal. Well worth the expedition.

  10. There are severe disadvantages in being a knowledgeable perfectionist Adrian. They look pretty darn good to me. Actually I think you are far to hypercritical of your own efforts. You must be, otherwise you wouldn't be saying complimentary things about the stuff we mortals produce.

    1. I would like to work in company. It doesn't take long to process for the web as I'm degrading the images. Working at a hundred percent enlargement I can see nearly all the problems. Another pair of eyes would be a help.
      Not long now before I start with medium format. I feel I've served my time and it's time for a new challenge. The cost of film and scanning should tax the few grey cells I have left.
