The image for this post is a seed head from a Clematis plant. Quite difficult to photograph through the tangle of hairs, I loved the contrasting soft and hard structures within 😀
Hello! I hope everyone has had a good week – it is cold and wet here, very wintry. This image was taken late afternoon after a brief but intense thunder storm whilst we were staying at Johanna Beach near Cape Otway last month. The storms that came later that night were incredibly dramatic with lightening that lasted hours.
Hello everyone. It has been very cold here, winter has arrived. The image I am sharing on another sad and unthinkable day for London and the UK, is one I took a few weeks ago. I saw this dragonfly at sunrise which was still in it’s cold slumber from the night before and was fascinated by the glass like beads of dew on the wings and the magnification in the drops on it’s eye. Enjoy.
I hope everyone is well. We’re now into late autumn, the last of the deciduous trees are in their wonderful colours, days are getting much shorter and the misty mornings are plentiful. One day last week we had very heavy fog and I spied these little grasses which had gone to seed sparkling in the rising sun. Enjoy 🙂
Hello again everyone 🙂 My harvest at work went very well – a good tonnage of very clean fruit which is now in the care of the skilled winery guys. As you can imagine, I haven’t had a lot of time to take images but I did get to visit Duneira Estate today which is is now in full autumn glory today. A wonderful site to visit 🙂 This image is a double exposure taken ‘in camera’ of a full transition of autumn colour from green through to red 🙂
Hello everyone! This is an image of a ‘windflower’ or Japanese anenome – the bloom is tired, the light is soft and so it gave a feeling of the last dance of an evening. Autumn is here which for me means that it’s harvest time at work…we start picking this coming Monday and so for the next 10 days or so I will see tonnes and tonnes (literally) of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. An exciting but exhausting time so probably my last post for a few weeks. See you the other side! 😀
This tiny toadstool standing in front of a much larger one that had been knocked over in a shaft of sunlight caught my attention. I love the rhythm of nature – as one falls, something else emerges in it’s place to take advantage of the energy of the sun.
