Cows & A Bull

dscn9558dscf5420dscf5468dscf5612dscf5607

Some of these photos were taken whilst I was on holiday in the UK, ( I was using a different camera)  I was staying in a beautiful rural area named “Laverton” while taking glorious country walks I would come across these beautiful cow’s every day & they would come up to the fence to say hello. The bull was also very friendly & very noisy. I can’t help but see only sadness in these cows eyes.

Norton St. Philip

The village of Norton Saint Philip is located approximately 7 miles south of the City of Bath in the West Country of England. Set in a scenery of rolling green Somerset hills, the village is home to about 1000 residents.

This is a place with a history, a small battle was fought here during Monmouth’s Rebellion in 1685, and ‘The George Inn’ is one of the oldest pubs in England, with an entry in the record books.

The village has as its social focus: three Churches, Village Green (‘Churchmead’), a school, Village Hall (‘The Palairet’), two pubs (‘The George Inn’ and ‘The Fleur de Lys’).

Amazing Clouds

Last night we had quite an amazing sky (followed by an also amazing thunder & lightning storm) Around 6.30pm I walked outside to see these stunning clouds, so of course I had to get my camera and try to capture a couple of photos. The colour and formation was amazing.

Sepia, Help

Taking black & white photos is my great love, but I also like Sepia.

I am using a Nikon P900 camera (& I love it) but using the nostalgic sepia setting, I find the my photos are never in focus. 2 of these photos have been taken with this setting and the other 2 have been altered to sepia using a photo altering programme. As you can see the altered photos are a lot clearer & more in focus.

So, I would love some constructive input as to what I’m doing wrong, please. As I would love to be able to use this sepia setting more.

Thanks in advance.
