30 Days of Blog Lovin' ~ Day #5

Day 5!! Woohoo! So far so good! Well it is Friday night and the end of another week. I can believe how quick the weeks are flying by. We have had a few windy, overcast and rainy days these past few days, so I just want to share these beautiful sunset photos taken last month. I thought I would share something else that makes me happy and that is Sunsets and Sunrises and taking photos of them. They really do take my breath away. I love how no two are ever the same! Photography is a easy escape for an artist date too!
 

All of the sunsets in this post were taken from our back yard in June, well they were all taken on two or three different nights but the sky changes so much from minute to minute, I just keep clicking away. I have my tripod set up inside the door ready grab and race outside the minute I see a golden hue starting to come through the window. It took me quite a while to work out the best settings for shooting sunsets in manual with the canon. I still experiment with the settings from one extreme to the other but I am loving what I can capture now!



These power poles in our side paddock feature a lot of my sunset photos, so I am always trying to get different angles on them.
 

 Love the colours in the evening sky, there is something just so magical about sunsets! They definitely fill my well!
 
I love how the sun hits the ground in this one. This photo says hope to me, its like the light at the end of the tunnel is shining bright!


The painting below was done during a workshop with Susan Riley Gee, I used one of my photos of a sunset for inspiration, excuse the pic of this it was just taken on my iphone. That is Sadie in front, she was probably thinking hurry up and move this so I can lie back down! LOL


Sorry I don't have much to say tonight, it has been a long day with more videoing of the resin class kit, the good news is that it is almost finished, just waiting on a couple more things to set.

 I don't feel like I have achieved as much as I would have liked to again this week, so feeling a bit deflated tonight that another week has flown by and I haven't achieved everything that I set out to achieve. I really need to knuckle down and make some changes in my life and routine to achieve the goals I want to achieve, time to give myself a big kick up the arse I do feel!

I have to take mum up to Townsville on Sunday and back Monday for her first raidium appointment, so I will lose a couple of days work, but that is ok because family will always come first. Just not looking forward to the 5 hour drive each way :(

This weekend take notice of the nature and scenery around you and see if you can capture a photo of it, even if it is on your phone. Take note of how it makes you feel, could it be something as simple as this that fills your well too?

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, I hope you get some downtime in! :) xxx

  2. Stunning images Michelle ! Love the light hitting the ground on that shot you mentioned too and the one with the solitary bird on the wire between the poles. Love that.

    Please don't get down by what you didn't achieve. Instead...write a list of what you DID achieve !!
