Tuesdays of Texture – River in Flood

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A combination of torrents of water streaming off the hills and the severe gales blowing upstream, magnified by a high noonday tide and almost full moon created some fascinating waves and mini-bores on this average English river.

This week’s contribution to Narami’s Tuesdays of Texture (de monte y mar).

An Inspirational Moment – Weird Sunset

There is so much ‘out there’ that inspires me. I wouldn’t know where to being to whittle it down to anything specific and much of it is very much a ‘moment’ thing.

Though, a dominant inspiring force for me is nature. Observing clouds, seasonal changes and weather patterns is almost as natural to me as breathing.

So I’m sharing one of my wild sunset images with you this week.

It was so weird, it blew me away!

No Photoshop, no filters, just as it was – in that moment.

On the Way – Loch Lomond Lady

This image was captured on a long journey south from the Highlands of Scotland down to England. It was a long day as there were so many excellent moments for stopping and taking yet another photograph.

But this one I have cherished ever since. Whilst driving alongside Loch Lomond, the sun going down, I saw her, lying down in the water, the moon behind her, or, are they the edges of wings? She had a golden shawl adorned with a bow and still to this day I do not know if she is looking at me or looking away.

It was truly a magical moment.
