The Start of Autumn

Today is the official start of autumn. So to celebrate my favourite time of year I’ve decided to take a photo each day throughout September and October.
When I went out today I limited myself to one lens. So my kit was:
• Pentax k3
• Tamron 90mm macro lens 2.8

Sun on the leaves I really liked the way the sun was hitting these leaves as I walked into the woods. I had wondered if the sun would still be too harsh, given that it was August yesterday, but I didn’t need to worry. Acorn

Who can resist an acorn!

In the Woods I thought the tree on the left looked a bit dark and spooky. So naturally I had to take a picture. Dragonfly

I was able to get up close to this little fellow who just sat there minding his own business. There was a really massive bright yellow dragonfly buzzing around, but unfortunately he didn’t stop still so I couldn’t catch him.

Tomorrow I was thinking about getting up and shooting the sunrise. Then I checked the weather and it said it would be misty (This is fine), then I checked the weather again and it says no mist just heavy clouds. I suppose I will have to monitor it!

Flying Home

Had a bit of a mardy morning as it was cloudy and I couldn’t get the PHP/mySQL to work, in a fit of rage I deleted everything off and had a nap. Had anticipated only having a half hour nap, but kept hitting snooze then finally turned it off telling myself I’d get up only to fall back to sleep. Two hours in total. However when I woke up, I was awoken by the sun.

I hastily had some dinner and headed out.

Snowy Sunset in Sheffield

Today it snowed. There wasn’t a snow day however 😦 but still, I always enjoy a spot of snow. Sensing that an opportunity would present itself at some point in the day for photography I took my camera to work with me and ended up stopping off at “the usual” on the way back from work, about 20 mins before sunset. This wasn’t the shot I was going for, especially since I have taken a shot like this before (except this one has added snow!) and I only took this one as a (half) joke to myself – grabbing the same shot in the same place at the same time of day but under different weather conditions. As tends to be the case with these of things I ended up liking this shot the best!

Walking the Dog

Today is the first day this year where I woke up with no photography ideas in mind. I hate days like this as they instil in me a small amount of panic – what if I can’t think of anything? o_O
I decided to be productive in the morning and go get some bits for my photography next week when I go back to work, and as I was driving to the shops I realised it was misty!

I’m a girl who loves a bit of mist so then I started (mildly) flapping about the mist being gone by the time I’d got back from the shops. It hadn’t so off I went.

Reflections

As the weather forecast looked for the morning I decided to get up early and go for a little walk. This was taken where I normally go to take photos when I can’t be bothered to travel too far but want to be outside, except this time I went a different route and found some nice potential spots for future photos (weather/lighting conditions weren’t right today).

For 2013, my photography resolutions are:

  1. Put more effort into getting shots straight in camera
  2. Clean kit after outdoor use (or if indoor use meant it might get mucky). Every time
  3. If you know the photo wont work, don’t snap it (I’ve gotten better at this but I still take shots that I know wont work “just to see”)

First photo for the new year 🙂

Only 354 more to go … 😉
