I was not thinking of a reflection shot, I wanted the weed. Reaching into my bag for the UV filter I found I'd left it behind, so took the shot and hoped for the best. I got a shock when I uploaded the shoot. All I've done is to tweak the levels & curves. The water, flowing from right to left, has the feeling of wind to me.

Can you see the characters who make up this tale? Reflection of Horse Chestnut branches, in the Moat.

No time to set up so I took a hip-shot & hoped for the best. The guy nearest me reminded me of Nick Frost in Hot Fuzz, the other, slim like Simon Pegg. And to cap it all, when they got into their car, the tubby one put on shades.

His mobile rang, he answered, and chatted for a few minutes. The call finished and he put away his phone, then he took it out and began another call. It was then I decided to shoot him. CAN'T HE READ THE SIGN!!!!!!!!!!! "Please switch off your mobile phone in consideration of other patients." Oh, I forgot, "Thank you" Sat, 21 Mar 2015 12:33:26 -0400 No Snow, But Snowdrops <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />Snowdrops <i>Galanthus nivalis</i>, at the foot of the Tulip Tree Liriodendron tulipifera. I placed the camera on the ground in amongst the flowers and took two shots blind except for triangulation. For the first time of being in Somerset, winter never happened. NO SNOW!!! The seasons went from Autumn to Spring. Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:07:54 -0400 Crocus Fire <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />A Spring corsage Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:01:59 -0400
