This week we have had some truly awful weather (I heard it referred to as Junuary, and that was pretty appropriate since the high one day was 6C with 60+mm of rain) and as such, I haven’t been out with the camera much. So, I thought I would share a few of the photos I call my ‘Artistic Impressions”. Generally, I like to keep colour photos as true to life as I can remember, and take my liberties with monochrome edits to highlights the subject to it’s best advantage. Sometimes though, a photo seems to be asking for more, and I take it (for me) to an over the top place. I’ve been having some fun recently doing more of these artistic edits, and thought I would share a few today, since I don’t have anything else.
Have a great week everyone!
Looking back through my photos, I think some of the most stunning landscape photos I have were taken in Namibia. The amazing contrasts of such clear blue skies and the red sand, to me it was just breathtaking.
I came across the hashtag #FeelGoodFriday on a photo this morning, and not only was it a beautiful image that made me smile, but it inspired me to pick a photo pf my own as a feel good Friday photo.
This is one I have wanted to edit for a while, and doing so has made me happy. The light in the desert of Namibia is so magical, I hope I captured a bit of that.
Enjoy, and TGIF!
As soon as I saw this week’s topic, I knew exactly what I would share – the fairy circles of the Sossusvlei desert in Namibia. I was lucky enough to see them from the air, and also from the top of a small dune while out quadding my first evening in the desert. No one had an explanation of how they were formed; nothing grows in them, the are simply barren sand surrounded by scrubby plants.
There’s a Wiki pages with more info about them, in case you are interested: Fairy Circles – Wikipedia
