Clustered Together

Another week gone, another flower to my collection. I still don’t quite know why I like fuchsias quite so much. Perhaps it’s their wide variety of colours, or their attractiveness to pollinators, or maybe it’s just that they’re quite ephemeral once they’ve bloomed. It could also be because they’re a challenge to spell but that’s true for many flowers.

Where do we go now?

This is the first of weekly posts written directly on this site to replace my weekly #floralfriday posts over on Google Plus. If you’re not familiar with the theme it’s as simple as it sounds: Post a flower picture every Friday. The idea on Google Plus was curated for a long time between 4 users: Eustace James, Beth Akerman, Kiki Nelson and Tamara Pruessner. Most of them have left now, especially as Google Plus is slowly getting close to shutting down.

Happy New Year G+

Your days may be numbered so I won’t list the platitudes that usually come with new year wishes instead I will say thank you for 7 1/2 years of good company on a platform that allowed some of us to bloom creatively.

To everyone else, wherever you go next may your paths be filled with adventures full of joy, peace and growth.

The River Tweed, Peebles, Scottish Borders

This picture took me a while to process, I somehow wasn't able to get my usual HDR software to work until recently. But I am glad I took my time with this as the end result is rather nice.

A few photo tips I learnt on this while preparing my shots for HDR.
> Make sure all exposures have no over or under exposed areas left, even in the +2 and -2 exposures.

> Remove all chromatic aberrations as these don't merge very well and tend to become quite visible in the end result

With that in mind I think I might revisit previous HDR shots and see if I can improve on them.

The Lost Time

Ever noticed how the period between Christmas and New year seems to be a succession of nameless days to a point where you don't tend to be able to say off-hand what day or what date today is?

Well at least I worked out today was Friday I suppose…
