Another week of randoms

Hi once more, I hope you’re well? Thanks for visiting, this time is another week of randoms! Typically I’ll have a week of getting out and snapping some shots and posting from 1 or 2 sources. Recently though it’s not been the case and I have to trawl through my backlog. This means one or two photos from various other sources, which is what we have today πŸ™‚

Holiday Memories

To begin, a few photos taken whilst on break, and below is a shot I recently edited of Portrane Beach.

The top shot was taken along the front at Dale. Middle shot was from Marloes Beach and the bottom shot at Dale West.

Autumn in Burghfield

As titled really, these were taken a few weeks back when it really felt like Autumn was here. It was bright, crisp and fresh that day; I can still remember the sights and smells. Since then it’s just been a little on the wet and dull side…give me those blue skies again!

Autumn Elsewhere!

A little further afield, although not too far! The top shot, taken on my phone was taken near Midgham and the bottom shot from the Discovery Centre in Newbury.

Wokingham

Ah yes, the town where I work! I took these 3 on my iPhone last Friday and edited them using a couple of apps on the phone. This takes me back a bit…

And..to close…

A couple of nature shots, some beautiful leaves, the ‘almost’ supermoon and a sunset at Ufton Nervet.

I took the moon shot at 17:21 last Sunday, a day before the true supermoon. I’m glad I got to take this shot because the Monday was very cloudy!

A Grazeley farm and some older pics

Hi again and once more a little later than usual here are some more photos, this time based around a Grazeley farm and some older pics.

I’ll do the older pics first;

And the rest were taken again in Grazeley. I drive past this little farm on the junction of Mereoak Lane every day and I’ve wanted to grab a few shots of it for ages. I hope you like them.

I have to fess up and say the black and white image is made up of 3 or 4 photos taken at different expoures. The horse moved slightly between shots so looks a bit weird!

Photos from last week

Happy Sunday folks, hoping you’re all well πŸ™‚

Below are some photos from last week whilst I was out and about around the vicinity. Oh, there’s a flash back photo also from the place where we got married; the Painswick Hotel in Stroud. Definitely a place I’d like to go back and visit, nestled as it was in beautiful Gloucestershire countryside, very picturesque.

Since I’m talking about that photo, I’ll post that one first πŸ™‚

Charter Alley, Sulhamstead, Ufton Nervet

As promised last Sunday, I have some more photos to post up. The weather seems to be getting a little better as we ease out, away from Winter and edge towards the warmer Spring πŸ™‚

Saturday saw me out and about taking a few shots of the surrounding areas of Burghfield travelling to such exotic places as Charter Alley, Sulhamstead, Ufton NervetΒ as I tried and tested out my new polarising filter.

Before I post those up, I re-edited one of my favourite photos from our honeymoon; a gorgeous sunset over the Arabian Sea at Calangute…this was taken back in 2003 on an at-that-time pretty high spec Sony Cyber Shot camera. I bet its spec pale considerably against today’s point and press devices!

Calangute Sunset 2_tonemapped Edit

So in the late morning/early afternoon I took a drive out of Burghfield, headed through Tadley and out towards Basingstoke. Along the stretch of the A340 I turned off towards a place called Charter Alley where I grabbed a few pics of pylons and clouds. I’m hoping to get back there soon as there are some great little areas I want to capture;

Charter Alley Clouds

After coming back to base for a bite to eat I decided to venture out again, I headed for Sulhamstead where there was an amazing cloud just sat above the horizon as I looked out. I hope I captured its awesomeness;

From there I carried on down past the Spring Inn, onto the Bath Road (A4) then turned up towards Ufton Nervet, which seems to be one of my favourite go-to places. It just seems so quaint and idyllic as well as having one of the most photogenic trees πŸ™‚

I still have a few more photos to go through so hopefully I’ll be posting up a few more at some point this week. Until, thanks for stopping by and please do feel free to leave any comments, I’d love to know what you think πŸ™‚
