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.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

It’s time for your Monday dose of fantastical photographic fun on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and this week K’lee provided us with this enigmatic prompt;

“I’ve got the Monday blues.”

Well, that could go in any direction couldn’t it?

I decided it required some “blue sky thinking” and that alone was inspiration enough to start me off with this…

…but of course I couldn’t just leave it at that, so then I came up with this…

…after which, things got a bit out of hand…

…until, finally, I ended up with this surreal composition:

Try not to have nightmares.

K’lee’s link is nowHERE, so let’s see what blue offerings you have for us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

I’ve been rather busy recently and I realise that I’ve been neglecting my duties on here, a situation that I hope to remedy at the earliest opportunity, but for now, here are a few editions of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge that you might have missed…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

Good morning, I trust your weekends all went well and that you were suitably inspired by Friday’s prompt, to go out and capture some autumnal arboreal images for today’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week, we’re all about the trees,because Autumn is upon us and that means glorious colours and skeletal, sculptural shapes all around us.

Sycamore and beech always provide a rich range of reds, oranges and yellows and I didn’t have to go far from home to find examples of those, one of which got the “artistic” treatment. Plus, the giant leaves of (I think)a white oak and a chestnut tree that looks like a floating ball without any help from me.

Here’s a fitting soundtrack to start your week, let’s hear it for The Trees.

I’ll post a link to K’lee’s pictures when they appear, but now it’s over to you…

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.
