One Photo Focus: May

May 2016 One Photo Focus

The first Saturday (Friday for those in the past) showcase our editing of one photo.  This month we were given this photo by Julie over at juliepowell2014.  Her photography and editing is amazing.

May 2016 One Photo Focus

To go for my usual vintage feel, I edited with Nik Collection – HDR and then played with the texture filters in the Topaz Textures.

There have been some amazing editing this month – very adventurous. So check them out over at Stacy‘s blog.

WPC Challenge: Some Wonders of this Earth in Hastings, NZ

Raindrops on Roses-237

Good morning from a cool, foggy autumn day here in Hastings.

The last few days have been dull and somewhat wet with a light drizzle.  Yet perfect weather for getting some lovely raindrops on roses type photos.  I have a few to show you here from my Social Snappers group yesterday.  We just wandered around the Heretaunga Women’s centre for some lovely earthy photos.  Perfect for this .weeks challenge prompt by Jen H.

On this day, between the global Earth Day celebration, and Mother’s Day in the United States, share your vision of our glorious Mother Earth.

So here are some more photos from yesterday.  I had my 3oo mm lens which was superb in the low light.


Feeding the Bees 2-126

Feeding the Bees-099

We need to plant more flowers to encourage our bees.  Mankind will not really survive if we lose our bees.

Earth's Cleansing Rains-055

I love the way the earth looks after the rain, and the air is so much clearer.

Changing Seasons-262

And the changing colours of the earth.  Finally we are starting to see some autumn colours here in Hastings.

Thanks for visiting.  I have to rush.  Off to another market today.
