Gormley 6 Times (no.2)

The lighting on the Water of Leith this morning with the sun out and snow on the ground - brilliant! Had to be patient waiting for the sun to rise over the valley to light the figure.

A good read

The camera has been resting for the last two weeks. Weather has been rubbish so mostly time spent indoors. Out and about today taking advantage of sun, no wind and no work. Still some good Autumn colour, but in a mono mood. Particularly liked this shot which was taken from the aquaduct that carries the Edinburgh to Falkirk Canal over the Water of Leith. Liked the shapes and lighting, in particular the highlight area caused by the low sun shining through one of the arches that support the aquaduct.

Maybe baby.

Now I can't make-up my mind about the Lensbaby. Would these shots have been better if I'd used a conventional lens and then played in photoshop? At that point where considering acquiring more for the Lensbaby system, but wondering if my hard earned cash would be better spent elsewhere! Sequence taken at the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh gradually appearing here. The low sun and quality of light was amazing. All taken between 2 and 4pm.

Out and about on a beautiful sunny Autumn day with camera with Lensbaby attached. Returning to work next Monday, so making use of my few remaining days. Shot of light refracting through glass and casting this rainbow effect on a blue slate wall.

Autumn morning

A few quick shots with the lensbaby in my garden on this rather damp morning.

Alive and well, and still together.

Crete set is now complete (possibly) and can be viewed here
Hard to believe that it's only been a week. Feeling good considering, though still a little uncomfortable and tire easily.
Just spotted this: surfing the web from Everest . Seems you can't escape it!
