A couple of big sky photos from last winter in Norfolk UK.
My contribution to Becky’s October Squares
Reflections on the Huon River, here in Tasmania
I thought it would be fun to turn the image. This is my contribution to Becky’s challenge October Squares at https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/36475785/posts/3586270541
I need a few challenges for this new year, so I was delighted to read that fellow blogger Jude has set a 2020 Photo Challenge to “try out various photographic techniques, skills or concepts”
The theme for January is Composition and Framing. I didn’t know about the challenge when I took these photos earlier in the month during our NZ holiday. But these photos seem to fit the bill, taken on my iphone. I have cropped them to straighten and frame them. I need to get away from the Instagram habit of square images.
Whilst visiting the Bay of Plenty we stayed with friends of friends whose house overlooked this kiwi fruit orchard and I was able to get up close and stand underneath the trees / vines of hanging fruit.
I like these photos, looking straight down the “tunnel”. But .. the big leaf in the top left of this one is distracting.
I like the hanging vine in this, but it hinders the sense of distance and there is not so much fruit in the picture.
The fruit were not quite ready for harvest, but workers had been there earlier, thinning the leaves and removing damaged fruit.
The orchards are bordered by very high hedges which act a wind breaks.
Have a look at Jude’s photo of Godrevy Lighthouse here and links to other bloggers contributions.
Whilst in Rotorua we visited the Redwood Treewalk. A walk across twenty eight swing bridges, with information on each tree platform about the hundred year old redwood trees and the tree ferns below.
We were staying near Lake Rotorua so took a walk along the banks at dusk.
