WIN SOME LOSE SOME. (21/10/14)

Last nights storm didn’t amount to much but it’s very windy this morning with the odd shower thrown in. Not a day for long exposures though there is plenty of water about. Above the tree line it is just far too windy and not much better in the woods._MG_0697   Nice water if you like this sort of thing but the bracken and grass were blowing about all over the place. I’ll try Lodore falls tomorrow when things have calmed down a bit.

_MG_0701     There are still a few leaves left on the trees. The mountain is High Spy.

Untitled-1      A cinemagraph to finish with.

I hope all you living in the UK survived what was only an inch of rain and a stiff breeze here.

That’s all for today.

    1. Thanks Mersad, I should have spent another half hour on the cinemagraph and left the fronds out.

    1. My wind is easing a bit now. The clouds are still rushing past though. I'm hoping that there will be time for the next lot tomorrow morning for an outing.
      I'd forgotten about the cinemagraphs.

  7. A bit windy here, and a lot colder. I hate winter!

    But I loved your stream.

    1. Frances, it was a bit nippy on my fingers this morning. I'll have to set to and find my gloves.

  8. The cinemagraph was outstanding, well done Adrian. I slept all night long, but when I finished, everything seemed like it was hurricane,banging and clattering.

    1. Bob, I was sheltered here. It's a while since I've done one.

  9. I like the first image of the brook/stream snaking through the woods, but cinemagraph is very, very clever.

  10. Like the gif.
    Little overnight rain here, plenty of gusty wind but tempered with brilliant sunshine and blue sky.

    1. John, much the same here but heavy rain for an hour or so last night and short vicious showers this morning.

  11. Usually it's birds that dance around and don't sit still for a photo. It's not often the wind causes problems with movement. I couldn't stand still and hold a camera still in that wind.

    1. Red, neither can I. I use a tripod and lash it down.

  14. The cinema graph is outstanding Adrian and I like the bracken (or ferns) in it although I can see why you might not.

    1. Graham, I did one without moving ferns then the file size was too large so deleted it and did another. As is usually the case I decided if a bit moving was good more would be better. I am now trying to get one to repeat seamlessly. It's easy with a flag but the method I use makes the water flow down then up which is a bit silly even by my standards. There isn't a seam though.

    1. Have sent instructions. I have done these in the past but never tried streams before.

  16. Presumably you went for a walk on the Cumbria way alongside possibly Castle Crag.
    The Cinemagraph is an amazing way to finish the post
