One Four Challenge: May Week 4

Monochrome Apples-

Where has this month gone.  We are now onto week 4 of Mays image, which is part of Robyn’s challenge over at Captivate Me

So this week I had to go monochrome.  This final edit was edited in Lightroom. I just played around with the sliders.  In particular with the clarity, luminescence and vignette.

There is a poll to let me know which one you prefer.

I will catch up with everyone later as I have my acrylic painting class.

Sunday Stills: Last of the Summer Wine

Last of the Summer Wine-608

Yesterday it snowed here in Napier, which is very unusual.  Normally we have a very temperate climate.  Snow on the distant ranges is generally  all we see.

So when I was down at the stables visiting the ponies I noticed how low the snow really was.  So I went for a drive around our countryside to see what i could find.  Actually it was more wine country around the southwest of Hastings.  Row upon row of grape vines in various states of autumn colours.

So I thought, ah, the Last of the summer wine – for Eds challenge at Sunday Stills, which this week is the letter L.

Sally D’s Mobile Challenge: Clouds over Hastings

Train in the city-8305

Good morning from a very chilly Hastings day.  Yesterday morning when I did my posts it was pouring with rain and freezing cold.  It was even snowing in Napier.  It never snows in Napier.  Even the flights were cancelled at the airport – which is sea level.  But after I did my post the weather suddenly cleared up and we ended up with a very crisp sunny day.  Still freezing though.

Anyway my mobile photos with my iPhone 5S were taken about a month ago.  I was supposed to be on my way to my painting class when I noticed this cloud formation.   Soooo, as you can imagine I was very late to my class.  This train is actually running right through the centre of our CBD.

These are for Sally’s challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally.  Which this week is challenger’s choice.
