Day 128~366

The buds I took shots of on Tuesday are already bursting into action with leaves and wiggly dangly things happening. After googling I found that the tree is an Oak Tree (yay!) and will develop acorns, though not sure how long that process takes, hopefully within the month! You will note that the sky is not blue, the weather totty on the TV lied her ass off! I also came across a patch of variegated grass in the middle of the marsh, maybe a discarded plant someone chucked there that’s taken root. Also poor Phil has had some painful dentistry…

125~366

Sunny days are here!! yippee, 🌞🌞😀 Weather forecast great for the next 4 days. I’ll be moaning it’s too hot by Sunday! 😀 Today I went to see my tree and take some pictures of the buds which hopefully will become whatever they are supposed to be before this month ends! Had to  use my 50-230mm cheapo zoom lens, as the branches are too high for me to get them with the macro lens. This next is my favourite because if you look closely you can see a little spider hiding.    

Day 97~366

My blossom tree is doing its thing big time now, and I wanted to do a macro of it in sunshine on the tree. But our incessant crap weather isn’t giving any quarter, so I’ve tried to emulate a sunny day,at night 😀 , by shooting an offcut in my conservatory under fluorescent lights and with an LED angle poise lamp. Initial processing in LR, then Potatoshop with Paint The Moon actions and RadLab filters. A bit of an embuggerance but I think it more or less works. 🌝
