Ra

DSC_0833.jpg

A finicky god, converting (Hydrogen into Helium) 24 hours a day but constant, in solar terms. It demands no worship and will not hold anything against you. I like Ra, or  Helios or Sol or whatever the hell you want to call it, it’s made me who I am today! ;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

Manual 365/256 Little Ball Of Green And Blue…

What are you doing to me? I’m clambering over fences, getting funny looks from people who’d rather watch me than look to the sky…

dsc_4750Or in a field, led on my belly among the stubble, amazed at the tiny flower that’s been waiting for the towering mono-crop to be reaped before stealing the show! And that’s just on Monday!dsc_4727

Peace Peeps! xxx

Manual 365/237.5 It Takes A Kind Special Kind Of Unicorn…

To make a red-shifted rainbow…DSC_0841.jpgThis was 20 minutes after sunset, which I time lapsed btw, you can see it here I actually stopped the time lapse to capture this, so after the end of the video I turned 180 degrees and got this… Oh how I suffer for this blog…

 

Manual 365/196 I’ve Edited A Monster…

DSC_5810-Pano.jpgThe Worshiper of Mono crops, The Stacker of Photos (6 in all aka Pano et Pano) the User of Editors and the Manipulator of Worlds (well, just a bit in light Room… and Photo shop… and Nik Collection)…

He relies on the skies aboveDSC_5801-Edit.jpg

And more skies, still above…DSC_5803_HDR.jpg(actually, same sky, different position and process but he still has this thing about mono crops, barley being his favourite but will make do with wheat tonight, it was late and he was running out of ideas)

First; Looking south from my favourite spot, up and down panorama x3 merged Lightroom and then imported into Photoshop to create a into a left to right panorama, Raw file with layers is 750mb. (That’s the monster, not me honestly)

Second; looking North West, the Sun was setting just to the left of shot and reflecting off of the high weather cloud and vapour trails. Edited in Silver Efex 2.

Third;  Nik Collection HDR Efex composition of the same sky from a slightly different angle 3 shots at different exposures and I see a swooping thing with a skull… And mono crops… Isn’t pareidolia a wonderful thing!

I had bugger all at 8pm so I consider this a save! ;o)

Peace Peeps! x

 

Manual 365/144 Got That?… Nope!

-1 x -1= 1 but the square root of one is one the square root of minus one is 1i and that that mucks with my mind and apparently it’s an Imaginary Number… I can grasp that in certain conditions x hitting y at really ridiculously high energy results in x+y-z and that we have no idea where z’s gone but there are people looking and they’re looking hard (there’s going to be a Noble prize waiting in the 11th dimension for them when they find it)  I love the fact that these people exist… My son loves the fact they exist too and he also loves the fact that when he starts getting excited about complicated math and Imaginary Numbers his Dads knuckles start to drag the floor and his brow thickens while a slightly perplexed look settles across his face…
So, based on the conversation we have just had I’m dedicating this blog to all of the hard working, relentless, frustrated, amazing Scientists around the world making it a better place and bringing us the Universe. Thank you!
Just a couple of things though…
1. These Photons are mine (They’re not I know but indulge me!)DSC_0245DSC_0236

2. The Boy’s on his way so you better move over!

Peace Peeps!
