Calm during the Storms

The weather (and the political world) have been providing some dramatic entertainment this week. As I mentioned in my post on Thursday, our walks outdoors this week have been more about dodging the strong winds and ferocious showers than any photography.

So I thought I’d post up a picture for the weekend which was taken a few weeks ago. Although it was a grey and misty sky on that day, hopefully the restrained palette and simple, delicate structures are a calming antidote.

A reminder; clicking on the picture brings it up in a new tab on its own.

  1. Me likey! I have a series I did of tree leaves. Without blurring it, I hyper expose, which whitens out most any sky and lightens the leaves to wonderful colors. When I get my photoblog up and running (I’m working on it ….really), I’ll showcase some of them. What is the template you’re using here?

    1. Thank you. No trick to this really, it is my panning long exposure (1/5 sec.) on a single stem that was standing proud of the hedge above me. The light itself was so diffuse because of the sea mist that had rolled in – it was on a cliff top walk – so there was effectively nothing as a background and no shadows at all.
