On Wednesday I left home early for work, and stopped at Franklin and took some photos.
This is my favourite shot of the morning, I love the misty pale colours of the far shore, the waves lapping against the jetty, and the little morning cluster of seagulls.
I couldn’t resist the flash of the red yacht against the misty hills.
Some of the seagulls started to fly off and I managed to capture this one, but I admit to having to do a bit of editing to get the photo to look smooth. (I had a massive “will I – won’t I” argument with myself about doing so much noise reduction, but in the end I figured it was my photo and I should do what I want with it, it doesn’t have to be “Real Life” all the time).
Just a short way further up the road the Pelicans often sit on this log, sometimes as many as 5 will be there. This morning there were only two, and a smaller fly-in-friend.
The photo was taken on Friday afternoon -on my way home. I saw him in the water out of the corner of my eye as I approached the bay, luckily for me, even though he flew off from the water when I stopped, he didn’t go far.
Hope your week was full of calm, with a hint of colour to liven it up.
Birds seem to pop up everywhere this week, these are the photos I finally settled on, a Red Robin, an Egret in the Early Morning, a Cormorant and Crows! Yes, I finally managed to get a shot of crows, multiple crows – now I just need a close up.
Facts I learnt this week: there are 2 types of dandelions growing in my lawn, who knew? Photographing a fairy isn’t easy! Camellia Seed pods are bizarre. The weird coloured cloud may be an alien mothership (that’s probably not a fact, but if it is you heard it here first). Rainbows never look as good in a photo I take as they do in real life. Ships with red sails are not necessarily invading raiders.
