What’s the Colour like at Upper Lliw Reservoir?

Hmmm! That’s a good question – you can’t tell what the colour is like from these photos. They were processed in Lightroom on my old Windows PC laptop and the colour is totally different to my old Mac laptop which is dull in comparison to my iMac. But the iMac is on the blink ūüôĀ ¬†– it needs a new graphics card.¬†I calibrate my screens with the Datacolor Spyder 3 but there is only so far you can go with a laptop.

One lesson learned a number of years ago means that I can, at least, still work with the files from the iMac because they were all backed up – phew! However,¬†I’m worried that the laptop is on its last legs as well, as it is old now and has given me one or two hints that it is struggling with the extra work load.

Looking back through the mist

Looking back at the recce walk we did at Lower Lliw Reservoir for the StillWalks “Sights and Sounds of the Countryside” project, when the weather made us hesitate about going ahead the next day, the theme of mixed and unpredictable conditions stayed with us for the rest of the work.

On the pre-production recce, we had thick snow . . . which was gone the next day. The following week the weather looked promising with a beautiful sunny Saturday . . . only to be followed on Sunday by what you see below. Very atmospheric but not quite in keeping with the rest of production.
