Seeing Differently Challenge – 6 of 15

Today I’m sharing my 6th image for this challenge.

On Saturday afternoon, at last light – the most amazing sea mist rolled inland. This is unusual, but with the sun going down, it was catching the rays and all the particles in the air. Wow!

I’m not sure if a camera can ever do justice to a scene like this, but I had to try  🙂

What made it really special, was a dear little visitor. A Willy Wagtail – one of my favourite little birds… He was flitting around catching all the bugs in the air…well, I’m sure he was hoping anyway!  What a wonderful scene. I’m so glad I was a part of it.

seeing-differently-6_800_robyngosby-2016I love watching the birds – we have so many here and they are wonderful. It’s not very often though, that I am quick enough to capture the moment. For me, all this moment needed was some fairy dust – actually if you look closely the little bugs are substituting for the fairy dust!

If this challenge (idea) appeals to you, please jump in. You are welcome 🙂 We will be exploring throughout October.

Watching the light..

This past couple of weeks I’ve been continuing to experiment with different sorts of light.. and Still Life to see how light effects the objects within my images.

I’ve been watching ‘light’ light as opposed to dark and moody light – I do enjoy finding this ‘happy’ light on darker days.

These images are mostly light and airy and most are shot on grey and/or rainy days. All are using natural light, with a window as the main light source.

I love blueberries. I think they are beautiful.. and tasty! The morning I took these images – I quickly made a blueberry tart ( tipping the berries into a pie dish  😀 ) – and this is what I found.

Light source: Window only – early morning – shooting into the light.

The Autumn leaves below, were shot in a different aspect and at a different time.

Light source: Window only – early afternoon – side light.

Also these leaves are the ones I collected over a year ago and they’ve still kept their colour. I love them!

Lastly for these 4 images (below) – a different feel. Man made objects only – gorgeous, sparkly and colourful. Nothing really of nature itself, except for a beautiful suggestion..

Light source: Window and spot lamp – late afternoon – lamp behind object and window light behind camera.

So three different times of day and different objects makes for quite a bit of variety!

I’d just like to say a big word of thanks for the new and old follows. 😀

That’s it from me for now… Hope you have a great week whatever you’re doing x

September Blossoms..

It’s Spring time here in Australia and the beautiful blossoms are on show in the old Orchard, although not for much longer. They seem to come and go very quickly!

I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to take any photos this year as September has been grey, rainy, blustery and cold so far..  Yesterday I tried… and even though it was another cold and grey day, I found some magic along the way..

Just a few images to share this Friday.

I love nature’s hidden treasures.  They are my ah-ha moments.

Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are 🙂

Flowers on Friday..

It’s Friday morning here.. and I actually have some flowers to share today  🙂

They are the only ones around here presently, except for the yellow daffodils that are peeking their heads above ground this week…

Today’s images are of the pretty cyclamens that I love having around each year for winter cheer.
