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.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography: Black and White


Sally from Lens and Pens by Sally has renamed her challenge to Sally D’s Mobile Photography.  This is a great challenge where we get to showcase all photos taken with our mobile devices such as phones and tablets.

I have this great new computer.  But there was a glitch when it came to uploading my photos.  It wouldn’t upload my edits with Snapseed.  Only with Adobe’s Aviary app.  But i had edited these photos with Snapseed.  Any advice is really welcome as I use Snapseed a lot.

So I just had to edit these quickly with Lightroom.


These photos were taken at Pakowhai Park.  These were taken after my camera’s batteries had died.  It is always so handy to have a camera on my phone.


I will have to google it.

As I have my art class this morning I won’t have time for my reader this morning so will catch up with everyone later.

Thanks for visiting.
