Looking for an Ocean

On Thursday, a friend and I took a trip to Portsmouth, to find Cute Things, drink Tasty Things, and find a road named after a book...

The prompt I went with for Delightful Aberrations' theme challenge this week was gap.
To be completely honest this photo happened completely by accident, but it fits the theme so here it is!
This one is also part of my 365 Project!

I know that the majority of my posts lately have been about photography, but I did actually Get Out And Do Stuff again recently, so I do have other things to write about. I just have to have time to sit and write the blog posts--!

Unfortunately despite the fact we're heading towards the end of February now, a lot of places of interest are still closed!
But spring is here at last, and I can at least tramp through muddy fields in my wellies!

Colour Fall

Colour Fall
For Delightful Abberations' theme challenge this time around, I opted for the fall prompt. I decided to experiment with shutter speed, and ended up with the above photo (after much editing because it's a dark day, so not entirely suitable for a fast shutter speed!).
I'm trying to do more with the technical stuff like shutter speed and depth of field, because I'm so out of practise with it!

This second image was produced in-camera by combining two separate photos--one with a fast shutter speed (1/1000) one with slow (1 sec).

More photos taken for this challenge can be found on my Delightful Abberations tag.

January Roundup & 365

Into the Fog (23/365)
Since I plan to take a vast number of photos this year as part of my 365 Project (goal #65), I decided to post monthly round-ups to look back at what I've done over the past month, and share the photos I've taken in places other than Instagram and 365 Project.

Rings (12/365)
Ideally, I'd post the roundups at the start of each month, but this one is a few days late as I've been ridiculously tired lately. The weather certainly hasn't helped--cold, dreary wet, and occasionally fairly windy!

My roundups might not always take the format of this first one; I'll play around with that over the months and tailor each one according to the photos and what I've got done.

So here's how my January has been...
