Nature has been rather dull here as the Autumn glory is over and were left with a mucky brown landscape. The crisp glistening world of winter hasn't begun yet and although the berries are on the trees there is no frost to make them sparkle.
Theres a lot of rain and a lot of wind, not exactly ideal photography weather for someone who gets cold just looking out of the window.
This time last year I had gone a real pearler on the ice walking to work, one of those embarrassing legs straight from under you moments on a puddle that had iced over and been hidden by the snow. I remember it hadn't been the first dicey moment that winter so its all rather mundane this year, that we've had no decent weather to inspire or to warrant getting
frostbitten fingers for.
I'm sure if I went tramping over hill and dale I'd find something that caught my eye. The light is a dull not really bothering to try kind of light but I would think with a bit of editing....
no I'm not drawn to it.
So instead of wallowing in the negative, I went to the supermarket and bought some bits to have a play with. Cue my living room window cill (with a lovely warm radiator underneath)
a spotlight, a piece of black board, a spare bathroom tile and a bar of chocolate...
perfect photography conditions I'd say!
Looking at the pictures, there are a little too many stalks and perhaps the tile could have done with being black too as its a little busy but oh the light and darks, the reflections and shadows!
