Hello and welcome to another Behind the Scenes post from me.
This first month of Spring on the tablelands has been very cold, rainy, blustery and grey – thankfully with a few gorgeous sunny days dotted in between. On those sunny days (or when the sun shows itself), we see the beautiful long shadows…
..and the glorious light that I love so much about this place!
The Spring blossoms – ..are gorgeous and I so enjoy watching the stages of blossoming and being close to nature, especially when they are such brightness on a grey day. It always feels like such a privilege.
The Changing Seasons – I’m still in the countryside. For Max’s Changing Seasons I had been photographing one tree throughout the year – but that came to an abrupt halt when I needed to be on the farm for calving in June. So I began looking at another tree – the same type, just in a different place. There is nothing marvelous about this tree (here). It finds it hard in the cold climate…
Here ’tis anyway… the tree’s point of view and a closer look at the bark for this month.
Still Life – I’ve been continuing my Still Life studies and experiments. It’s been so good to have something to focus on (photographically) when it’s so ‘yuk’ outside.
I must say I really have to think about this – I’m used to natural settings but not really creating my own – so… it’s great having the challenge and as usual, I love the light.. and finding it!
Just a few randoms.. and there are plenty that don’t make it 😉
Instagram – Still enjoying Instagram – I can honestly say – I didn’t know I would. It seems to be a condensed and abbreviated version of blogging.. Once again you’ll find me over there as @robynwashere 🙂
Lastly for this month’s behind the scenes – just a little find that I think is amazing! A very tiny weed on the side of my driveway. I had to get the macro lens to ‘see’ it. The flowers are only about 3 – 4mm (maybe 2/8 of an inch?) across.. Once again it was very windy day, but here’s what I found by looking closer… Even beauty in the weeds.
Well, it’s now October..
If you’re like me and the grey and cold weather is not your favourite time of year – try finding what is right in front of you – again, like me you might be surprised 🙂
So… have a great one, wherever you are!
