A Patch of Grass on the Forest Path.

Grass.

Hey Everyone πŸ™‚ How was your day? Or how is your day going to be? – depending on where in the world you are right now! πŸ˜€ today’s image is a low angle macro of a patch of grass- I know, cool! :O

Of course the entire background of this photo is completely blurred out but it is in fact a long winding path through a forest.Β UnfortunatelyΒ that didn’t make the best photo so instead I crouched (well, tripped) to the ground and poised the camera ready for this low angle shot. While sometimes low angle shots can be focused on objects further back, the same rule of thumb applies: Always aim up or horizontal; when I was younger I always had it tilted slightly down and I always wondered why the shots looked so dull/plain! And that is the end of our lesson, night πŸ™‚

Oh Wait I was meant to ask: What theme do you want next week? Suggest some in the comments below and then I’ll continue to make a poll! πŸ™‚

This photograph was taken further up the road from yesterday’s one and combines HDR with some subtle editing to give the trees a silhouette appearance πŸ™‚ hope you enjoy

p.s If anyone would like to display their photos on this blog I would be happy to give them credit if they simply email me with the photo or a link to the photo as well as any personal details eg. Name, country Etc πŸ™‚ the email is snapsticle@gmail.com

Wandering through the sunrise.

Don’t you just love that amazing feeling you get when you wake up on a weekend and you feel as free as a bird? All the stresses of the week simply disappear and you’re free to do what you will!

I certainly do! Last weekend I went out to the forest, had a walk, and took some spectacular photos! They were great! Too bad I fell In a lake shortly after… The cameras still functioning properly, but the memory failed and this is the one photo I recovered! Oh well! At least it’s clean! πŸ™‚

Water in a quiet place

Okay, so turns out I fall over a lot! This happened while I was exploring Aira Force, a small but inspirational waterfall, in the Lake District of Cumbria! This is the same place where the famous poet, Wordsworth, was inspired to his world renowned poem, I wandered lonely as a cloud! Seeing the area I could see why! It was truly stunning an it would have been impossible to capture all of it’s beauty in a single photo! (unless I had a panorama feature)

When I started this expedition of sorts, I assumed it would take at most 15 minutes And would be at most 1km to the waterfall and back. I was wrong. It took 4 hours, and 5 miles. I now leave the map reading to others πŸ™‚ anyway so halfway through walking I went and fell down the side of the fall, which luckily wasn’t to steep at this point and, being such a creative mind, I sat down and took pictures for 20 minutes. And that explains these picture πŸ˜›

Edit: somehow forgot to actually post the snap, that takes some skill don’t you think? Anyway it’s up now πŸ˜›
Re-edit: And then I choose the wrong photo, nice work Sam πŸ˜› anyway you might not see the difference but this one is a lot more detailed πŸ™‚
