Friday Quick Tip – Lightroom – Guided Upright Tool

Many thanks to Scott Kelby of Lightroom Killer Tips for bringing this tip from Benjamin Warde's Lightroom Coffee Break series.

Quaint Cottage at Battle

Many times we have driven through Battle on our way to East Sussex and time after time we have said that we must stop off and visit Battle.  Well we did one day and we went into Battle Abbey and strolled around the grounds.  Just outside the Abbey entrance is this quaint English Cottage. We [...]

Dahlia from Pashley Manor

For the Flower of Day Post - hosted by Cee Neuner I have decided to go with this vibrant lilac and purple dahlia which was photographed at Pashley Manor Gardens in East Sussex. Happy 4th of July to all my American friends and fellow bloggers. xx

A Photo a Week Challenge – From Below

  I am entering this photography into Nancy Merrill's A Photo a Week - From Below as I vividly remember freezing and looking up from below at the sun streaming through the trees, thinking 'My God why aren't you warmer?'  As I stood there freezing, with purple lips and a red-face from the freezing cold [...]

Photo For the Week – 1 – Hydrangea

  What with WordPress pulling the plug on their weekly photo challenges and daily prompts, I thought I might start a little challenge going, where you either post a photography or write a post if you wish, about your favourite flower. The above photograph was processed in Lightroom and to get the lighting effect I [...]

Playing around with a Dahlia

On one of our trips to the many gardens we visit, Pashley Manor in East Sussex, in this case; I came across this vibrant dahlia with the grounds.  I liked the image and decided to give it an oil paint effect..  And that is where my editing stopped. I knew I wanted to take this [...]

A walk in the woods at Shorne

This morning, hubby decided to check when his car's MOT is and as he now gets the train to and fro work, his car has been sitting, on the drive.  We knew the MOT was July sometime but the exact date... well we had no chance of remembering that. Anyway he wanted to give his [...]

Green Pasture of Ashenbank

What with real-life things, some sad and some good, my inspiration for blogging and processing our images has diminished.  I kept thinking I need to do some photographs for our blog... but never felt mentally capable of doing. I seemed to loose my inspiration and would stare aimlessly at images and then shut the laptop [...]

Lightroom CC on laptop/desktop

Oil Paint of Ashehank Woods

  I have been a stark advocate of Lightroom Classic, and would use Lightroom Mobile now and again on my phone or tablet.  But when it came to processing a photograph in Lightroom CC on my desktop or laptop... well it never happened.  Since downloading the software to my desktop and laptop I don't think [...]

Out of this world WordPress Photo Challenge

Oh my this week's challenge has me thinking of Spring... something that is Out of This World is the topic of this week's challenge and there is nothing like a walk in the woods to take you away from the troubles of the world. So for me.. after last week's bitterly cold days and being [...]

Silence WordPress Photo Challenge

There is nothing like snow... and here in the South East of England we occasionally see the odd flurry but we never have what I would call real snowfall.  Snowfall where places are blanketed from edge to edge with deep, white and crisp snow.  The theme for this week's challenge is Silence. And silence to [...]

Weathered – WordPress Photo Challenge

Weathered Car from Hackberry

Here I am playing catch-up with the WordPress Photo Challenges and last week's challenge was called Weathered.  And I was thinking what image could I use to show how things weather when left to the elements of wind, rain, sun and age. So the image I decided to use was one we took whilst we [...]

Growth WordPress Photo Challenge

Well last year just seemed to fly by... and our photography took a back seat... now we are in 2018 and we are determined to get our photography back on track.  So for me with the WordPress Photo Challenge the topic of Growth has two meanings for me. Firstly growing our photography portfolio and getting [...]

Glow WordPress Photo Challenge

My God I can't believe it is over a month since I posted to this blog and participated in a WordPress Photo Challenge. Anyway one of the challenges I have missed is called Glow.  Now for me the meaning of glow is something bright.. the sun glows and casts light to enhance things.  Anyway going [...]

Layered WordPress Photo Challenge

Layered is the subject for this week's photo challenge curated by WordPress.  And there is nothing like the layers of branches on a tree full of red coloured leaves like this one at Sheffield Park Gardens, taken only last week. Sheffield Park Gardens is one of my favourite places to visit.. I love autumn colours, [...]
