A leaf from my book – 19 May 2015

It was up, breakfast and out to the gym!  Yes, you read it right, the gym.  We’d signed up a couple of weeks ago and I was interested to see how exhausting it would be.  It wasn’t all that bad, in fact it was quite enjoyable.  I don’t think I’ll become a gym-bunny any time soon, but I might buy myself a new pair of trainers and a new rucksack.

The next task, and one I was certainly NOT looking forward to was replacing a power socket just below the kitchen cabinets.  These things are a nightmare to access, and this was no exception.  I felt I should be wearing those close-up glasses surgeons wear.  Why are these things put in such inaccessible places?  Anyway, after a lot of

As a release after the tension of the electrical work, I went for a walk to St Mo’s.  For once, it wasn’t deer I was seeking, but simply good light.  Also for once it was there in abundance.  Lovely directional light with intense darks behind.  For once, all I had to do was crop and sharpen slightly.  No real tonal adjustment.  No use of Photoshop.  Just nice to use almost the whole frame

As soon as I saw the trio of leaves, I knew it just had to be the photo of the day. Again, it was all about the light and the fact the leaves were bounded by the columns of the tree trunks on either side. 365/139
