Moody - Me?

You know I'm one for these
moody sunset images
don't you?

This is not just any old sunset view though!

It's the most beautiful sunset view ever?
 The beginning of our very own pond,
not only will it be a haven
for wildlife,
but a saver of domestic animals  too!
I mean us.
This pond will be an overflow area 
for when our stream floods and hopefully
it will fill this bowl and not our home!

Actually it is quite exciting,
I dare not think about it too much,
it's huge, takes almost all of our field.
The National Trust are paying for it as part of a
larger flood defense project, but the pond is
situated on our property, we would have
never been able to afford anything like this.
The possibilities are endless, we
could float a boat on it!


Like the image and just thinking about this pond. Enjoy it's beauty and growth my friend.

I grew up on a piece of property in upstate New York with a pond on it - what stellar memories I have of my childhood there! It is huge...I'm excited for you!

Tell you what Sue... it's about time, isn't it? 12 years? OMG.
I'm wondering if you could ask the EA to add some fish to it and that might make your property even more attractive! They fund stuff like that - so if the concept appeals to you, feel free to contact me and I'll get you contacts!
Stephanie said… wonderful! to have a pond on your property. Besides the help with flooding the wildlife that will come should make for many many years of beautiful images and memories!

my darling....
i am an ocean girl. i grew up next to the sea and all my moves took me up the coast to wilder views in northern california.

family matters set in motion my land locked move to the mountains of prescott, az. the two ponds right outside our doors and favorite windows are my solace. now i will think of you on the cusp of such beauty as i drink in the peace of light falling on the face of ponds.

i am so happy for you and the foxes!

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
