We took Roger for a walk the other day in the grounds of the Abbaye de Beauport just outside of Paimpol. It is in a great location having salt marshes on one side and great views of the sea. It was closed when we went but you can still walk about most of it. Roger liked it too!
I passed this field of cabbages on my travels yesterday. The light was fading and rain was coming in so it was a challenge to get the right shot. I think l will try again on a sunnier day to compare what shots. The field next to it was of Curly Kale. I have never seen so much being grown in one place before.
I love the textures on this cabbage. Nature’s art work.
Had to include this which l saw on my way home. Again, l think l will try and capture this on a sunnier day. This, like many of my images, has been edited through Photomatix, a HDR software editing tool. It enables you to produce some incredible images but you must not over do it. I think it works well on architecture. This one needs a little more tweaking to get rid of the flare around the top of the turret.
Yesterday, Christmas Eve, we took Mum out to a little village called Kersey that Jan remembered from visiting years ago. It was a typical Suffolk village hardly spoilt. We had a lovely lunch in The Bell pub next to a roaring log fire. On the way home we all sang Christmas songs and took in the snow covered fields; a real Christmas scene. Great fun.
We decided to brave the snow and ice and get in the car to go to Sidmouth. The sun was about an hour from setting and the light was amazing. Today is the Winter Solstice also known as Mid- Winter’s Day or The Shortest Day.
