Spring sun melts
Any mental anguish felt.
Energise the ‘seers’
Nature’s sleepy tones,
Groan from aged
Hooded nymphs glimpse
Into the lives of meek
I was with my friend and two dogs in Knebworth country park on a beautiful spring evening. We walked through the churchyard where she introduced me to her ancestors sleeping peacefully.The birds were chirping softly and the aroma of bluebells was quite entrancing. As the dogs played, we watched the sun melt at the end of a perfect evening, melting thoughts and worries of the day.
This photo was inspired by Cee’s black and white photo challenge, found in nature. I discovered these teasels whilst walking my dogs near an old sand pit, reclamed by nature, I feel that these spiky seed heads add structure to the landscape. Originally I shot colour and then used Snapseed to change my picture to black and white. I hope you enjoy it.
First the enhanced photo. I uploaded the original photo to Snapseed, a free photo editing tool to sharpen the original a tad then I used a bright filter to add drama. I then uploaded this image to Pics art where you can do lots of funky things, but I mainly use it for borders and special effects when I want to add atmosphere and also if I want to create montages or multi-photos in one frame as yesterday’s post. I used a vignette, a Bokeh24 mask and border 23. I hope you enjoy the result,
Here’s the original taken in a nature reserve in Northamptonshire. Which do you prefer?
This photograph was inspired by Ese’s photo prompt ‘waiting’. I like the way the birds look as if they are queuing and waiting for something to happen. My Border Collie is waiting in anticipation too. Even in St.Albans we have had flooding as you can see in the photo. I hope you enjoy the peaceful setting.
This view was such a magical delight to come across when I was walking my dogs near the heath. I stopped to soak up the golden rays and the chill to my face, as I worked the camera at the same time holding on to the dogs! I hope you enjoy my post.
