50 With A 50 – Week 18

No complaining about the weather this week, it’s been lovely, but ironically I only managed to get out taking photos one day during that week. Hectic in work and at home. Still I did get one photo of a mini waterfall in a stream beside the path I walked on. I must try going off the paths a bit more, there are some beautiful little spots right by where I walk and I never noticed them before. #50WithA50.

50 With A 50 – Week 16

The snow is gone almost everywhere around where I live but Winter is still putting up a bit of a rearguard action against Spring. Last week we has a morning of freezing rain and fog (also temperatures in the teens on other days). The ice covered everything but melted early so I went out to take some photos on my lunch break while there was still some mist and fog. This weeks #50WithA50 surprised me, just when I thought I’d end up using the lens for details and shallow depth of field shots I end up getting a landscape.

50 With A 50 – Week 15

It’s been a busy week so I didn’t get to go out taking photos as much as I would have liked and I didn’t get to post according to my Monday schedule. But just a day late here is this weeks submission for #50WithA50. I was back around the tunnels where I work this week and I noticed a few that looked like they hadn’t been opened for a long time. Not only are they a little rusted but the combination locks on them look like they haven’t been touched by a human hand in years. Last week I found it hard to find a photo but funnily enough I think I have one for next week already, we had freezing rain and fog this morning so I have a bunch of new photos to process.

50 With A 50 – Week 14

Last week started with Spring but ended with Winter. I took this shot early in the week and as of this morning everything was covered in a light blanket of snow again. It wont last long but I had my hopes up for a while there. Anyway this image is of the… I don’t know what to call it… early Spring colour? Left over Autumn colour? All the plants that had just been buried under the snow for the winter and turned brown are now uncovered and the new growth hasn’t turned things green yet. Sure it’s a bit dirty at first glance but when the light hits it just right it’s actually kind of pretty. #50WithA50

50 With A 50 – Week 13

Winter is really in full retreat at the moment and most of the snow has melted. Where the snow has melted along the track I walked at lunch time there is a blanket of pine cones which I thought would make a good candidate for this weeks #50WithA50. I think I prefer using this lens for shots like this, up close to get detail with a shallow depth of field.
