  2. Definitely slower than last time. Mangroves on the banks of the Hunter River, opposite Ash Island.

    I started on assembling this DIY pinhole camera a couple of days ago. I haven't got very far yet....

    Our next lot of rain cleared, sort of, by late morning. The forecast was for a few sunny periods to develop, however that was not to be. It did look possible around noon but during the five minute walk down the lane from my cottage the uniform greyness returned. I abandoned the idea I had in mind and cut my losses with an image from the lane. I've struggled to inject much life into the image. I've tried black and white in Raw Therapee but was very unhappy with the results, then over to Photoshop and Nik filters, both Silver Efex and Viveza. The later injected some life into the colour image, but I'm never very happy with colour (possibly because I'm slightly blue-green colour blind) whilst my efforts with Silver Efex bought out more mid tones in the image, so here it is for what it's worth. It certainly proves that the quality of the light must be interesting to obtain an interesting landscape, more of a day to leave ones camera in the bag if landscape photography is on your agenda.

    The clothes pegs are to hold it together while the glue sets. Unfortunately the glue dots provided aren't very good, hence the tube of Loctite. I've also had to use the occasional staple. It should end up quite robust, I hope.

    After ranting about selfies done the standard way yesterday, I simply couldn't resist this opportunity; but I really think the other guy peeking in makes the image:
    SiJ2018_02.

    Nice one! Monochromatic with the tiniest of tints - well done.

    The dessicated leaves of American Beech, Fagus grandifolia. Their tan and bronze hues are visible throughout the forests all Winter. The proper term for holding onto plant parts after they are dead and dried is marcescence, as opposed to the typical Autumn leaf process known as senescence.

    Well seen and captured - and twice a prime, too (1046 = 2 x 523).
