Looking out to sea and waiting – that is what these “standing stones” appear to be doing!
My StillWalk, “Coastal Walk“, in Scotland in the Spring features these shots. The balanced stones looked as though they were just biding their time and waiting for some spectacular event – or perhaps they were just soaking up the sun while they could.
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 🙁 – 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.
Taking an aimless walk on a sunny Sunday last weekend, I ended up at our local station where the patterns, colours and perspective of the track prompted me to use my camera – which I had casually taken along with me . . . just in case!
Here is the answer to the question on yesterday’s post.
That’s right – an elephant! We were walking down a path towards Skanda Vale Hospice and Hindu Temple. They keep their elephant by the main temple on the hill and take it for 10 mile walks each day.
Sorry there is no photo of the elephant – maybe next time. However, for those who enjoy listening, here is a sound clip from the recce walk we did – the sound of birds above the Skanda Vale Temple, a beautiful peaceful place.
Ferris wheels seem to pop up in every UK city on regular basis. The first one is in York but the second shot was taken on Boxing Day in Belfast a few years ago and the third in Swansea in 2012.
These are the last shots from my recce walk in York last February and the subject matter is not likely to feature in the final StillWalk video which I am working on now. First of all, the ferris wheel was not there in June when I did the production day, and secondly, it wasn’t on my walk route anyway – neither was the windmill, I just liked the structure.
The windmill is Holgate Windmill and it was strange and unexpected to see it suddenly appear through the trees and amongst the surrounding house roofs.
