a photographers eye

Here is the disclaimer
i do not claim now or ever to be a great photographer
( i visit far too many photography blogs to make that claim)

i am just a woman with a great camera
a passion
and a little knowledge

anyway one of the things i love about camping
is that i slow down.....
and because i slow down i get the opportunity
to
 look around and see
my world through the camera lens
with a photographers eye




the view we gaze at whilst sipping our breakfast cuppa


our first sunset


another sunset


The gloaming
you can't see it very well in this shot
but there were thousands of tiny moths, mites....bugs????
fluttering beneath the branchs of this tree

i don't know what they were but they were mesmerising to watch



okay i know it's a fence post 
but i loved it's weathered beauty and colour
there is beauty in the simplest things



i couldn't resist having a go at this photography technique
and Sticky was a willing subject

the technique involves holding the shutter down
and using a torch to paint your subject
it's great fun
as Sticky was wearing muted colours
the golden light of the torch gave the image a very
vintage look


and of course when you spend alot of time
sitting by a fire there is always alot of fire shots

cooking and drying


can you see the fairies dancing

Hope where ever you are 
your hands are working on the something that you love
