I have the utmost confidence in saying that everybody loves Autumn [ I think !! Lol]. I went over to the Pond especially to seek out leaves that have changed to their autumn glory.
There were quite a few that had got caught up among other trees and shrubs on their way to the ground, and some were still attached to their parent tree, but without exception , they were all yellow! These pics are all in situ as found ….
I’m getting a bit like Busses – you don’t get any posts come along for a while and then you get several at once …. more from my autumn walk very soon, take care all, Eileen
Thought I would get a bit more ‘arty’ this time and go for a softer look. This is the centre of a yellow tulip.
Same image – different colour. I use a prog called ON1 sometimes and the title of this is taken from one of their effects.
Back to normal tulip colour for this one.
I hope I’m not flogging the water drops on petals to death here! But I do enjoy playing around with them as you never know what gems you’ll end up with ….
I really liked the colour of this one ….
The weather is supposed to get really good this week so I’ll be visiting the Ifield Pond again. I went last week in bright sunshine and forgot to adjust the exposure number on my camera – which spells disaster when photographing swans as their pure whiteness gets blown out and un-rescuable [if there is such a word?] Plus – I wore sunglasses and I ended up not knowing what I was viewing while trying to juggle specs and camera – daft ‘apeth! The swans have 6 babies now and I did get some adequate shots of them, but overall I was disappointed and disgusted with myself…. I hope I can learn from my mistakes though.
till next time, Eileen
I bought myself a huge bunch of Daffodils and enjoyed myself taking photos of them. As ya’ll know by now – I like to ‘enhance’ my shots in Paintshop Pro. This allows me to bring a bit more creativity into what can be just another run -of- the- mill subject … I hope you like the results. I’m really grateful for this modern technology that allows me to share something that I would otherwise just tuck away in an album somewhere. Ha ha – it’s a substitute for plying someone in my home with all those snaps that you have to be polite about! Bye for now, Eileen
This is a super Heuchera , appropriately called ‘Marmalade’ that I bought last year. I love heucheras and I love marmalade- so what more could a person ask for? They are such undemanding plants and have spires of tiny starry flowers in early summer. I like them because they are clump-forming – and they look beautiful in the rain too.
I’ve shown images of this lovely rose here before – Rhapsody in Blue – but this time it had a visitor. It looks like a ladybird, but it is yellow and black, so that has thrown me a bit! Anyway – as yellow is the complementary colour to the purple rose [on the colour wheel] I thought it looked rather nice. The bug isn’t as sharp as it might have been ‘cos it was on the move the whole time ….
I thought I would throw this one in rather than make it a new post …. it almost looks like the snails and debris are on the sea shore, rather than on the paving in the garden – just a bit of flotsum and jetsum.
see you soon, Eileen
