Day 47~ 366

Had to work in Cumbria again today, 7 hours driving in total, so a tiring day. I didn’t have time really to stop and do good photo’s but I pulled off on the A66 to get a shot of the bit of sunlight that was shining on the snowy mountain. That was it as far as sunshine went! Loved the sky today though, interesting clouds for most of the day.

The Sunday Fraggle report

Well I missed last Sunday as I only had 4 pictures, and as a result have now got too many, so lots to look at this week 🙂 The weather has not been kind, but I have had some long journeys to see clients, so have come across some quite lovely views, and my little Nikon S1 has been doing a cracking job. Last week I went to North Yorkshire again, and the sun was arguing with the clouds to see who would win out. On my way back I went through a village called Ravensworth and came across this…

Before & After

This is a little shot I took with my compact Nikon S1 near Derwent Water in the Lake District.  I was going to delete it as it doesn’t look much there, but decided to have a play in LR to see what could be done. I also took it into my Nik filters software and added some bits and bobs, and this is the result. It would have been better to get the exposure right in camera, of course, but am quite glad I got the sky exposed correctly rather than the foreground, so I was able to pull out…

Over the hills and far away…

Have been over to Cumbria working a few times lately, a 2 & 1/2 hour drive, but on a sunny day the scenery is stunning and makes up for the tedious drive home again.   I got a new little Nikon Compact, the S1 and these pictures are taken with it.  Am working late a lot and my weekends have been busy too, but having a chilled one this weekend, so have time to blog and catch up with the ones I like to read.
