    Re: Snaar snaps: Village life

    The night shift:





    Those last two just fell in my lap tonight. The sort of shot you just have to take, even if it makes you late for tea :-) I did have to explain myself to the stable lass - always best to ask permission eh?

    Meanwhile - this was the shot I have been waiting several nights for.

      Bitey horse: My new friend



      A village footpath leads through his paddock. We have an agreement: He doesn't bite me and I don't bite him.

          Organ Practice:

          Aha! I finally traced those occasional almost subliminal musical notes that crept into the office yesterday. One of the church organists was practicing some Bach and some of the lower notes were creeping out of the church eaves and across to our workplace.



          Normally this rural church is locked, so it was a chance to pop in, take a picture and chat: Then straight back to work.

              Yes, good point. No installment today despite some nice autumn sunshine, worked straight through lunchtime

                This is a very entertaining thread. It's like The Archers.

                    Here is one from a few days back. I felt these wheat stubble fields needed that mean gritty B+W treatment.



                    I am expecting all this to get ploughed any time now (unless there is a Euro subsidy for leaving it like this..)

                    BTW. I met my first Big Tractor on the road home on Friday in the dark. All giant tyres and flashing orange lights. Most impressive.

                      The small farmyard barn: Supported on those staddle stones and accompanied by old wheelbarrows, there is the small barn.

                        No worries, I'll read up on it over the weekend. When can I start?

                          OK, here is one I revisited. I removed the previous attempt as it wasn't good enough. Here is a 3 shot hand held HDR of the same subject but with a better dusk, better technique and a sharper result...



                          Oh, and while we are on the hand held thing: Here is a nice blue moggie at dusk, hand held at 1 second (hold your breath.............)

                            I really like the Morgan photo. You can see just enough, leaves you wanting more.

                              I just have to say, along with others, what stunning pictures you are displaying here - and all in your own back yard! The composition and colours are excellent, and inspirational!

                              'nuff said.

                                It's quite a series you're building up here, Pete, and every picture is excellent. When can we expect to see the book published?
