A quick walk today on the way home after picking my daugher up from a friends house. Normally I take photos of flowers but today I tried to take them of swans at the loch near to my house - to get a feeling of the onset of winter - it was a challenge on a brilliant and life changing moneysaving site I visit alot - to get out and use your camera - digital photography is pretty much a free hobby once you've got the camera - and often they just don't get used enough. This time the challenge was to capture a photo which would fit the phrase: 'Onset of Winter?', here are a few pictures I took..............but even at 3pm the light was going fast.
|They just go about their normal business - which is really nice!|
It got a bit dark by 3.30pm and we had to abandon things and go home - none of my close up's of the swans were very good - I'm more use to taking photos of still subjects! Flowers are much easier! It was a great thing to think about and to get out with the camera again and just look at life - for realtively no cost!
Or if you're silly like me - you take your winter hat along and ask yourself what it would look like in the sunset.................................I'm glad I don't look like a skinny bean-pole I'd look very silly in that hat wouldn't I! I was trying to get a lovely shot of the 'onset of winter' airing your favourite hat - but it just didn't work at all! Never mind, made me giggle anyway!
