So now i am on holiday and well.
My account will be 4yrs old this week, i have been asked to close it down, my ex said as it was for both of us, it should go.
I have no clue, what to do.
The crazy colours in a rock, it is even better in places when you magnify it and look closer.
Rays of hope, shining through the clouds, maybe.
So hopefully i will head somewhere tomorrow, think a walk along the river would be nice, but will wait and see.
I had planned to go and shoot a castle next week, then found out, it does not open to April, lol.
But i will find something and the weather is supposed to get better, will wait and see on that one.
So i hope everyone,has a great weekend.

On the horizon, there is a ship sailing off into the sunset, so much of how i am just now is, in that picture.
Pictures are about telling a story.
So over the weekend, i am going to start deleting the older blogs, how many will go, i have no clue, i am sorry, but i have too, there is reasons.
They will be replaced with new ones over time.

something a little different, a 3 picture of a wave hitting a rock.
SO 2 days to the holiday and i am looking forward to it,, think it will a holiday in other ways as well.
Time to recharge the batteries and sort out a plan for the future months.
For over a week, i have felt kind of lost, not even sure why this time, for things in life are good, but there is a but there somewhere.
I went to the woods this morning, sat down to try and get too the bottom of it and fell asleep, lol.
Woods are alive now, woodpeckers are back to the noisest best and all the other sounds make it a nice place to be.
I am back too, just little old me as i walk now, no dog for company and i have not even taken the camera with me.
But alone is not so bad, i can still walk and look all around me, each day is different, but still the same in ways.
Pictures tell the story, soon the picture will change.

This is the bay that is wide open, can see this as a place for sunsets, some time.
Looks like if you get it right, there is a lot going for it.
I am hoping to explore at low tide as well, the cliffs are a nice feature and i am not sure the kind of ground at the base.
There is the first glance of something else that will feature somewhere down the line as well, was hoping next week, but will now be in July.
The bracken on the top of the cliffs add colour, i am sure there will be coastal wild flowers to be found, will need to start looking at my feet soon, to get some of these little gems.

I still have so many pictures to go through, so some from last week,i still have so many sunset ones, i havw not even touched yet.
Back in the day i stood on the top of that rock, Julie was in the bay and i went exploring, she was not a happy bunny, when she saw me.
I like these type of pictures, getting a bit low and taking the picture.
I might try and process some scenes from the woods for tomorrow and i have a horse picture too,, nice to have a choice.

I always say, i am a simple man and those words were said to me by someone to describe how she seen me.
So it just kind of stuck.
I can not remember when, but yes the where,it was where i took so many of my pictures from on Friday.
My outlook in life and how i lead it was why she said it, as i get older, i see, what she means.
I am that person, happy waiting for hours for a picture, just walking and looking, seeing what others walk by.
I went to the coast on Friday for one thing, a little mission as i called it, but that led to more.
I was so happy as i sat there on that island, i always think of people when i do sit for a while, when i looked further to the left towards where me and Julie would go, if i shut my eyes, i can picture her sitting and her red hair geting blown in the wind, but i could also see her in her bikini, swimming in the ocean.
Then there was when we had fun on that bit of beach, a little cove, with one way in and it was perfect place, for fun as the warm day of summer was coming to an end.
I really liked this picture, for me it shows so much, when i was editing it, i was zooming in all around, it and if i had a polarizing filter on my lens, the detail would be so much better, but that filter will come soon.
If this could count as a hobby, i think i would do it, catching the waves as they break, so much fun, when i get the new camera, with its faster frame rate, i am going to sit and fire away, when you have these shots on the large screen and then zoom in, some of the things you se, is a very nice surprise.

So today was a day to recover as such, I find my knee, feels real sore, i ma having to look at a brace for my knee.
I bought a monitor to edit my pictures on and i like the bigger screen for doing so.
I was going to buy the whole desktop, but i have just connected my laptop to the monitor and bought a keyboard and mouse.
I will invest in a desktop later in the year,but all my efforts is towards a new camera.
That is the most important thing.
Well only this week to get by and i am on holiday for a week, hopefully it will be a week of taking pictures.
I have some ideas on places to visit as well,plus i will just relax no matter what.
This castle looking from the cliff tops,,i liked this view.
When i was sitting not far from here last night,making plans for something else further along the coast, i was thinking that it must be about 40yrs since i first came here and how it still is all the same.
The island rock i was on is the same, the deep pool where i put fish in i caught was there and the part of a larger pool where i swam in with Julie, still there and yes, i will swim in again. I loathed the past for so long, thought it was all bad, now i can see it for what it truly is,, it is my life story.

So where to start,, 24 hours of sheer beauty i have seen.
At work last night i saw the Northern Lights, well i missed the best part,, so truly breathetaking pictures i have seen.
I saw the reds change and there was a slight hint of green,, but it was all colours in the pictures.
But i still was in awe off the little bit i got, one picture,, i must be the only person that can not use a camera on a mobile phone.
So when i came put from work and was walking for the bus,, i saw the dawn, dawning and well with it being frosty, it was a cracker, i tried again to take a picture or two and well a camera is not a thing i need on a phone, lol,, delete was the best option.
So i then had 3hrs sleep and back up,, had a mission,, the Wonder from down under, had told me about something in the area of the castle, i have been posting,, so i had to go and get my friend a picture.
I will blog it in time,, but i have so many pictures too show and well after today so many more.
I even got a few off the castle with some better sky this time..
I sat on the island rock as called it for over 2hrs, waiting for the sun to set and see what i could get,, but i spent time taking so many other things.
I keep finding rocks with interesting colour about them and well i can not walk by them.
Then there was the kelp, this was waving about and getting waves over it,, it kept me amused for a while, going by the amount of pictures.
Then i was playing about, with pictures off the sky,, i had the most amazing 24hrs in a while,, such simple things, but that is just me.
So i missed my bus home,i know you are all going to feel sorry, for i had to sit at the top off the cliffs and watch the night taking over, looking down and watching the tide come rolling in and well then the birds was still singing.
I was in such a great spot, i thought about missing the next one as well.
I was over 7hrs away and time flew by,, fresh sea air and more memories made.. yes life is good.
I was thinking that when i took this, it was my favourite shot off the castle,but then i looked at another and then i took a few today, that looked good on the camera.
You have so much off a story going on here,, the waves crashing on the shore too the left and then that castle,the rocky shoreline is what i like.
I like limpets, how they cling to the rocks and when i was small, i always tried to get one off, never did manage to just prise one off with my fingers.
|Thursday, February 27, 2014, 5:40:42 PM-|
So now for the main course of what is on that bit of the coast,, the Castle, yes i am going to bore you all with showing it from different views,, this was the first one i took.
It does sit on a rocky outcrop and has the sheer drop on the front, how hard it must have been for the builders in those times and yes probably there was loss of life building these things,in those times.
I wish i could have got out to the front part of the castle, but it is all locked now, but that is understandable.
So tomorrow i am heading there again, got something to try and find that i have missed and it took a friend from far away to tell me of it.
Plus it is one off the biggest low tides of the year and the sunset is at the same time,, what to find a nice spot and hopefully take a picture or two.
But at the end of the day,, will depend on the weather.

Only real thing that has happened the last few days is, i have lost my voice, it is kind off there and it is very funny sounding when i speak,, it is good to laugh at yourself.
For the last few weeks,, i have taken the woman that i have mentioned in my blogs dog with me on my morning walks.
She is not keen in walking in the pitch black morning and usually walks around the village, but since we have kind of re connected, she asked if i would take the dog.
So instead of coming home, i make a stop and get the dog,, this morning when i called her,, she kind a looked at me and i think even the dog was laughing at my voice.
So it is now getting lighter all the time, i come back from the walk in near daylight now,, but with that i am going to lose my walking companion, plus i will miss the special thank you i get every morning when i return.
My friend at first said she would just join me when i went, but then she realized that i use that time to de stress, from work, for just now it is very stressful, plus you will want to take your lover with you,, lol
She has asked me if i will take a picture of her and her dog.
But i am horrible at taking pictures of people to be honest.
When i use to take pictures of my ex and she posted them where ever she did,, i thought i was kind of good at it,, but when i looked at some off the poster of artistic nudes on this site, how wrong i was the ones i took were not like those.
If i thought my friend would be comfortable with me even asking if she would let me photograph her nude, to just get some practice i would,, but she is not that sort of person.
But then i would just delete them or give them back to her.
They would not find there way on to the net, that is for sure.
For me it is just another part off photograpy.
So lets get back to pictures.
THis is the entrance to the castle, yes you can walk in among the ruins, when i visited to take pictures for the wonders birthday, it was full of tourists from Russia,, i even now feel strange pointing a camera around at times.
THis is part of the walls, the thing that struck me was how small the rooms were, the walls are probably 2ft thick and the windows tiny, i just notice the tiny one right in the corner just now.
To be honest i need a wide angle lens to take better pictures off the inside and i will return when i do.
This leads to the top part and is locked and it is here, you realize how much smaller people were long ago, there is ruins dating back to the 1200's here, but the main part is 1400's, so some off what you see is over 800 year old, to me that is what makes these places special.
