The Swiss Gardens ~ part 3

Part 1                   Part 2 More from the garden, my pal Helen, getting the shot and that was which was the ceiling to this an Indian pagoda apparently, many in Switzerland I’m sure 🙂 Helen wanted to take me up to the lily pond, so under a little bridge to find a ‘no entry to the public’ sign, which Helen promptly climbed over and I followed on, we didn’t get caught and it was worth the risk That’s it for this part, stay tooned, still more bits and bobs to show.  

Day 224~366

The meaning of colours~3 Orange Orange is the only color of the spectrum whose name was taken from an object, the popular fruit – the orange. In nature it’s the color of vivid sunsets, fire, vegetables, flowers, fish, and many citrus fruits. Orange symbolizes energy, vitality, cheer, excitement, adventure, warmth, and good health. However, pure orange can be brass, it may suggest a lack of serious intellectual values and bad taste. It’s worth noting that there are many shades of orange – and different meanings. Some may be more appealing to those who find orange difficult: terracotta or cayenne –…

Day 198~366

Yipahoo today we had sunshine!  I had to go out for a walk to take photographs for the Sunday challenge group, and as always took a few (!) on the way there and back, The challenge was to use an online random point generator to find a place to get to and then go and find the place and photograph it. (Nothing to do with pokemon!!) I put a distance of 1 mile in, which doesn’t sound far but when you’re stopping to take shots along the way a mile can take an hour!    

Day 33~366

B&W is much harder to do than colour I think, and I kinda knew it would be. Spending much more time in the virtual dark room, and so it’s making me late with the post, as always have to get work done first.  I applied the fuji monochrome profile in LR and then did things to it in PSCC.   Anyway, here’s todays offering. A bit strange, but I like it.

Day 25~366

Lilies & roses, my favourite flowers. Can”t often have lilies as they are poisonous to cats, but as they’re being kept in the fr-fr-fr freezing conservatory Skye and the lilies are safe from each other.  I thought lilies was spelt with a double L but apparently not, doesn’t look right with only one. Never mind, it sounds the same. 😀 I like the generic name, Lilium. Anyway, here are some. Have a great week everyone 🙂
