ABOUT ME

My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

A WILD NIGHT. (11/12/14)

I didn’t get very much sleep last night. I’m full of man flu and there was an impressive thunder storm. It isn’t cold and the snow is keeping me in the van. I am still playing with Blender 3D to try and create some light swirls that will grow in a spiral then emit light. It is still a case of two steps forward and one back but I think I’m heading in the right direction. I have found another two dozen parameters to play with so hopefully by tomorrow I should have a rough approximation of the animation I’m looking for.

_MG_1069  The view today. I’m hoping it will clear before I leave so that I can get up the hill for some half decent views.

That’s all for today, back to play time for me.

    1. Carol, they call them Hobbit Huts. Skiers and climbers rent them to sleep in.

  2. Keep warm, Adrian. I've been thinking of you and Graham up in the North.

  5. The huts are interesting. I wondered if they were staged there for some construction project. Glad I read the answer. How do the users stay warm? Double occupancy sleeping bags?

    1. Joanne, they have heaters in though your solution sounds more fun.

  8. Adrian please take care. Drink, drink. there is a cough syrup but you can take it by tablet.

    Earache not good. You can get a problem and you become dizzy like vertigo. Stay warm .

    If you got honey and a section of the lemon in hot water. Sip that. Also my Mom used to put on my chest
    vick's rub Also she put that keens powdered mustard in as hot water as can be and mix it with a spoon. Make me bend over and breath in the fumes. Take dads wool socks and did not towel my feet after on't wipe my feet after just put on the socks and in bed. In those days we had not many doctors . So Mom had to do all her 6 kids that when they were ill. Sounds like your a suborn as a mule so get these reminies and get a moving on you. You need to get better. It wont go unless you start to apply something for the better.
