First Summer Sunset

summer sunset 2012

Click me to see big time!

I have a thing for sunsets and I find my Nokia N8 captures them pretty well. I love the beautiful blend colours that smother the sky in the evening. Here in the East of England the land is flat and the skies huge. Instead of taking landscape photos, I call them cloudscapes. I took this photo on Sunday 25th March just before 7pm. There are a few spots around the village that are excellent for capturing the dying sun.

I was a touch late as I wanted to find the sun a little higher in the sky, but hey, there’s always another sunset just around the corner!


Sleepy Doggies!

Out in the White!

Hey there dear blog reader! Here in the UK we had a smidgen of snow over the weekend, I say a smidgen because compared to the rest of Europe, who’ve been bombarded with the white stuff, we’ve had it lucky! Here in snowy Cambridge we had around 6 inches, not much really, and certainly not enough to complain about! On my way to work this morning I counted at least 20 snowmen dressed in their finest winter clothing.

I was compelled to pull over at one point and take a few photos of the mist rising over the snow drenched fields. Although I took them in haste I think they look pretty good. Click the snaps to make them all big and impressive!

The majority of the roads were clear of snow by Monday morning with the exception of a few isolated villages I drive through. Looks kinda lonely doesn’t it?

This one didn’t come out quite as well as it looked on my phone, you can’t see the mist moving which is a shame. It looked very eerie but quite peaceful.

This is my favourite one. The two trees are quite stark and isolated amidst the snow, almost as if they’ve huddled together for a bit of company.

And finally this one turned out quite well. Every day I drive past this thing, a factory or something, and I never took any notice of it. Until today when I couldn’t quite see it because of the mist swelling across the fields.

I’m still impressed with the quality of images my Nokia N8 can take. There are newer, faster, more interconnected Facebooky mobile phones on the market these days but I still think mine has an awesome camera feature.
