Apart from my passion for making cards especially with rubber stamping I have a passion for photography - I only have a fairly simple point & shoot digital camera. Although you can govern some of the process.
I enjoy taking photos of flowers & nature - some of my sunset photos have appeared here. One of the photos I have always wanted to achieve has been that of a lake scene where the sky & banks etc are reflected in the water. My holiday this year (just a couple of weeks ago) in Brittany was where I finally achieved this ambition. I am so pleased with the result. Here it is for you to see;
I took this picture on the evening of the first day of my visit to the area. It was a beautiful sunny & reasonably clear evening. The water was like a mill pond or sheet of glass.
There is a rather nice restaurant behind me as I take this picture & that is where we were going for our meal that evening.
It was my birthday - but that is another story.
I revisited this lake just before the end of my holiday & the weather had changed & so had the appearance of the lake. It was a grey day & the surface of the lake was rippled.
I often use my photographs that turn out well for greetings cards. With the help of My Craft Studio I can create my own matching backgrounds & inserts. I think this picture is going to be one of my new ones.
Another photo I have always wanted to take was also achieved on this same holiday. A photo of something in nature - I could not think of the way to describe this but I think the photo will explain.
But as we walked over a little bridge we spotted damsel flies all over the greenery.
I never dreamt for one moment I would manage to catch one. One problem was that it was so sunny I couldn't clearly see the picture that I had in my screen. Of course they also move very fast - they do not settle for long. But look at that - I got him! It was a shame that his wings were closed - but even so. They were absolutely beautiful - a brilliant shade of dark blue shot with other colours.
It just shows - take the picture - you never know how it will turn out. If you don't take it you will always wonder what you missed.
I am such a happy snapper.
Thank you for visiting & I hope you like my photos.
