That Little Bit Different

DSC_6964-Pano-2.jpg

You know what it’s like, same old faces, same old places but every now and then a different opportunity arises and  you get to see things in a whole new light.

Low tide in Bembridge on the Isle of Wight offered me that this morning. I’ve been here a few times and have only shot the lifeboat station from the beach and had no idea of the shelf of rock the station is built on and the covering of life that lies just below the surface.

When I picked up my new lens I treated myself to a polarizing filter and I’ve been scratching my head to its usefulness but this morning in the hard light and reflections it came into its own and I really saw the difference it made.

I’ve got a feeling, once I get the hang of it, I’m really going to love this camera! D750 Baby!

 

….16…..

DSC_4181-Pano-Edit-Edit.jpgAs you can see I’m really working on my soon to be (really) here exhibition…

This was the view from my office this lunchtime while I was doing my real job, pesky real job, putting me in all these wonderful locations around Wiltshire and distracting me so much that I need to get a 4 photo panorama of Roundway Down near Calne. A neolithic hill fort with commanding views across Devizes and a large swathe of the Wiltshire countryside. The light was hard, hence the B&W edit but I like! ;o)

45…

I’m 45 years old…. How the funking funk did that happen?

DSC_8817-Pano.jpgOne could have a bit of a mid (that makes my final age 90 and that ain’t gona happen) life crisis… Or one could take pictures like this and remember the glare of the sun, the bite of the cold Wiltshire morning and bugger the lens flare!

To grab an old cliche by the scruff of the neck, tomorrow’s the first day of the rest of my life and if I have a few more like this then I am indeed a lucky Fella!

Mahoosive love to my wonderful family, Sandie, Reece and Kayleigh I love you soooo much!

And to the rest of you…

Peace Peeps! XXX

The Wells Of Silence

dsc_7982-pano-edit“Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence…”

Guess who’s been Rock Banding! ;o)  And going through some more of the shots from Osmington Mills, this one was looking over towards Portland, the land mass on the left.

My World…

dsc_7138-pano-editThere are no words I can use to express how proud I am of my family but as I come to the end of this thing I can only say thank you for putting up with The Old Mans obsession and for everything you do and are! Love you guys! XXXDSC_7167.JPGThe camera goes away on the 1st Jan…. Maybe
