SNOW GO. (02/12/15)

After three days of wet snow it has now all gone. I haven’t had very much internet, It always seems to act up in damp conditions.

I have one picture that I snapped just after the main snowfall as the clouds moved away._MG_2467

The rest of the time it has been sleety and foggy.

_MG_2466MARTY does produce the most wonderful composite images so thought I would have a go. Not very good but the best I managed. I never got MathMap into GIMP. I have given up for the time being. I was sorting through some old images and found lots of things I had completely forgotten about here is one of them.

The view from Smoo Cave Durness.

I am writing this at four in the morning, rain is forecast and has just started but it has got warm. Later on I have to go and get dog food and something for me to eat.

I’ll try for some pictures later on this afternoon.

  1. I wondered why your post showed up at this time of day. So if you're up at 4:00 AM I get your post in the evening. At least your snow disappears.

  5. I love that last photo. Isn't it funny how time was when we hankered after colour, but now black and white seems more special.

    1. Frances, I still enjoy colour but shades of grey do wonders for some subjects.

  6. The composite is intriguing.
    I installed the Mac stand alone version of MathMap to try out. It is an older version and has its problems. Not least of which is it seems to only like to work with photos no bigger than the preview window as it doesn't scale the original but truncates it to the top left hand corner. Also I have to drag the filter text to the 'working' window.

    1. John, It sounds as if it wouldn't be worth using even if I could load it.

  7. Really like the last image, though in the first image I'm trying to figure out what the big yellow tractors is doing. Hope the snow turns up down here, I've been seeing Wasps flying around

  11. Lovely picture of the view from Smoo Cave. The framing really enhances the photograph.

    1. YP, I'll have to record some more frames. It is just a one click job to apply them then.

  12. These are wonderful shots. And your collage really caught my eye--- I agree that Marty's a master, but yours was not to be sneezed at.

  13. OK, so I believe that you really have had snow! ;-} I love that last image, Adrian - B&W really works with it! Pretty impressed by your composite too, although it'd be hard to beat Marty's combination of technical and artistic skills! For me, the scene depicted in the first image is spoiled by the distractions of the digger(?), farm buildings, and particularly the masts, etc. on the horizon. Wipe those out and it's be a beautiful scene! A tow truck and a few explosive could sort that out! Maybe Photoshop is a less controversial alternative?

    Best wishes - - Richard

    1. Richard, Marty is the King or maybe queen of the composite.
      I'll get the digger shifted but the rest will have to stay,

  14. Gosh. I remember your Smoo Cave sortie. It was good.

    1. Graham, Smoo Cave is both a surprise and impressive. I didn't expect to find limestone in amongst all the gneiss and basalts.
