Day 46~366

Managed 2 shots while out and about at work. This morning I was in the wild lands Darlington County, seeing people in little villages with miles of surrounding countryside, so a nice drive, though snowy in parts.

Firstly, had to be done, I do love the photogenic qualities of wind turbines.


and later further down the road I got the snowy landscape, but boring sky, and I don’t do replacements!



Today was a bit of driving here there and everywhere, saw a few clients and ended up in Blyth. ¬†Somehow, whilst the rest of England seems to be snowed under, the North East has escaped. But it has been icy cold with a biting wind, with grey miserable looking skies that don’t inspire photography, haven’t even bothered to pack the Nikon into the car lately. ¬†However in Blyth I spotted this wind turbine poking up in what seemed like the middle of a built up area, and took a shot with my phone.


not very impressive so I tarted it up in one the apps~ Vignette and had a reasonable result,Taken with Vignette for Android

but then I read good old Digital photography magazine, and decided to try one of their tutorials on the original image.


I cloned out the ford focus, added a lens flare and a gradient, and bob’s your uncle, well I think it has a bit more pazazz then the endless greydom I’m living in!
