Having spent a few weeks getting our new garden looking nice, I finally got round to putting the candle holders out last night and decided to try some long exposure shots when it got dark.
A few carefully placed solar lights added some extra illumination and, with a little digital fiddling the results really are rather lovely.
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.
