I wasn’t planning on a sunset photo today, and indeed it’s been mostly cloudy all day anyway. But then, just as our Christmas visitors were leaving, the setting sun lit up the underside of the broken clouds in spectacular fashion. Rather than walk to my usual spot up the road and risk missing the best of the light, I just took this photo of the cow silhouette through the garden fence. Moments later the colour had gone from the sky…
Caught sight of this amazing sunrise as I was opening the kitchen blinds at around 7am this morning. Grabbed phone and went outside – just a few moments to shoot some photos before the sun broke through and all the sky colour faded away.
This small pool a couple of miles from where we live belongs to a local angling club. It was completely deserted today…
Bluebells are typically around for about three weeks here, but the rather changeable weather has already battered them somewhat – I don’t expect them to be at their peak for more than another week at best. All of which encouraged me to get out and photograph bluebells at a different location today, while I still could.
Our few days this week in Dorset seems like a great opportunity to try my latest purchase – a DJI Osmo Pocket video camera. It’s absolutely tiny, shoots 4K video, and is fully gimbal stabilised. I’m hoping to get some good footage of our trip!
6.20am today. Came down for my morning cuppa and saw a patch of colour in an otherwise grey sky. Pulled some shoes on, grabbed my phone and popped outside – this spot is just a few yards from home. It lasted just long enough for a photo before it clouded over completely and all the colour was gone.
… is the one you have with you. So true! Came downstairs just before 7am today, and saw the makings of a great sky. Knowing it would likely only last a few minutes at most, I pulled some shoes and a coat on, and grabbed my phone and wide angle converter lens, and took the 2 minute walk across the fields. This is what I saw… If I had stopped to get my ‘real’ camera and tripod etc, I would certainly have missed it – it only lasted a few seconds longer as the sun rose and washed out the colours.
