Another Happy Monday

St Andrew's, Letheringsett, Norfolk

Back to work today after a weekend off which included a trip to the cinema to see Disneys "Christmas Carol" in 3D. What a great film, made all the better by the whole 3D experience. Throughout the film though I kept thinking to myself, what would Dickens have made of this. So much has changed in the past 150 years in the world around us yet the story is still not only very popular but very relevant. Having said that the way Scrooge was dancing around singing and giving away money he'd probably have been sectioned today and medicated :-))

Todays image is of a stained glass window from St Andrew's Church in Letheringsett, Norfolk, not quite as old as "The Christmas Carol", a great piece of workmanship.

After The Rain

The Old House, Kibworth, Leicestershire

Weather terrible over the past few days with floods in parts of the country, yet suprisingly mild for this time of year. First thought is this all related to global warming with the end of the world just around the corner or is it simply seaonal variation. At least when its horrible outside its a good excuse for processing images on the computer.

Todays image is of The Old House in Kibworth Harcourt, Grade 1 listed its probably the best house in the village. This was taken just after a rain storm evidence of which is the puddles and water lying in the road. In retrospect it would have been nice to have moved closer and used then to capture reflections of the house.

Here are a couple of alternative versions of the same image created by adding a texture layer.

Buckfast Abbey, Devon

Buckfast Abbey, Devon

Sorting through some old photographs today and came across this image of Buckfast Abbey in Devon. The image was taken just after a major rain storm leaving the sky very dark and the Abbey lit up by the sun. As is often the case time was a limiting factor as I was on a family day out and it was getting late in the day so little time to explore. The lighting was absolutely perfect as can be seen in the image.
