Where else would bats hang out?
We’ve noticed quite a few trees up here in the Cairngorms that appear to be dying. Disease? Polution? We’re not sure but a pity to see trees dying off…
….it just turned out the way it did…
Still having fun with the new Texture Slider in Adobe Camera RAW. It’s a fun tool and it worked well on the flower below. I love taking photographs of flowers with a very narrow depth of field – it makes the flower pop out of the background. The new texture slider gives the image a bit of extra pop!
I am sure somebody will know what kind of plant (weed?) this is. Spotted near Monnickendam (Netherlands) today. Almost like some kind of alien creature!
Moral: never take a dog with you when you are recording soundscapes!
Please click on the Soundcloud link below, close your eyes and join me for a walk in the woods at Hemmeland – a wooded area close to Monnickendam, Noord Holland, Netherlands.
Hemmeland is a great place to see nature, picnics, sunbathing and for dog walks. At Hemmeland you’ll find a mixture of wildlife, flowers, plants, trees, beaches and much more. There was a northeasterly wind today blowing at between 10-15 Knots. You’ll hear quite a lot of noise generated as the wind blew through the treetops. You’ll also hear the dog sniffing around.
There’s not too much about Hemmeland on the Internet but you can look at my photographs of Hemmeland by clicking on this link to visit my Adobe Spark Hemmeland page (scroll down when you get there)
See all other soundscapes here.
A spot of light and dark for you all.
I really must find out what these things are called…
I’m trying to work out why this tree root took off on its own journey…..
My fascination with these strange mushrooms (?) continues. They seem to be surviving the winter against all the odds. The strange life of fungi!
Cute toadstools growing on a rotting log. A more inquisitive man would find out what they are called…
More fungi. No idea what type but pretty…
I keep finding these mushroomy things when we take the dog for a walk but have no idea what species of fungi they are, whether you can eat them, whether they are poisonous but, they make interesting photographic subjects…
Autumn is just around the corner….
Another strange toadstool growing in Hemmeland, Netherlands
I’m not sure what sort of toadstool this is or, indeed, if it is a toadstool but I saw it growing in Hemmeland, Netherlands, today.
