‘Tis the season…

Reaping the wild wind…

Yesterday morning I took a drive up to the hills above Barnstaple, which give views of both the River Taw valley below and Fullabrook Down wind farm at the top.

I went up there initially to capture some black and white landscape shots for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge on Diary of an Internet Nobody, but the views were so spectacular that I stayed to do some experimenting with long exposures of the turbines. 

On the way back down the hill, I stopped to grab a few shots of the wooded river valley, lit by the low autumn sun…

…and because it was bonfire night on Saturday, here’s a sparkler sculpture and a strange sparkly gif of Audrey for you.

Oh, by the way, that post title..? That’s just a reason to include this ’80s classic. 

Enjoy.

Light morphing…

For one of my recent contributions to the weekly  Cosmic Photo Challenge on  Diary of an Internet Nobody I captured some car light trails and today I decided to use them for another abstract art experiment.

The glowing nature of the original images made for excellent source material, resulting in some rather awesome light sculptures, I hope you like them.

Well, I’ve got to find something to do on my day off.

More experiments with light painting…

Having found Audrey’s colour changing glitter lamps useful for making the gif in this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I decided to see what sort of images I could get by using them for light painting.

So last night I shut myself in a dark room for half an hour and these gloriously vibrant creations are the result…




(Yes, I know the “y” is backwards, I got confused, ok.)


K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

This week’s challenge was set by K’lee and it has a distinctly circular theme…

Good afternoon and welcome to a bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge,today determined by K’lee’s choice of theme; Circles.

I decided to go the simple route this week and use something we’ve been waiting for in the garden for some time; the first of our sunflowers to bloom.

Here are some circles within circles.

And here is where you can find K’lee’s photo for the day.

Right then, let’s see what you have to offer…
