Our World Tuesday - Blackburn

I was gripped by the crazy idea that I should get early on Sunday and go for a walk.  I normally lie down until such madness goes away, but this time I gave in got up!

The day was a picture perfect early spring morning - dew on apple blossom and that kind of thing.  I wanted to get something a little different.

This is what I came up with:




You can find more pictures from around the world (and possible not one taken while waving the camera about!) at Our World Tuesday.

Enjoy the pictures.

Haha! Waving the camera about is one of my specialities too!! Hope everyone else 'gets' that this is a valid photo technique ...

Same with me. I may get up extra early for my camera and think "this is madness". But once I am out there I then think "This was good". Nice photos.

Stewart that's perfect lighting in your first photo, the first shot you posted screams "Blow me up and frame me!" Fantastic job.

Cheers.

These are great shots, Stewart! It is fun to experiment with our cameras, isn't it? I do love love the first shot and it would indeed make a great framed shot!! Have a good week!

Nice shots, Stewart! I sometimes struggle with the whole getting out of bed thing, too.

Not Blackburn in Lancashire is it? Far too sunny. Lovely shots as ever.

Very nice! ( I am a champion at 'waiting until that feeling goes away' when it comes to exercise. (I'm not proud of that and I'm glad you got up and went outside to play -- and that you took you camera!)

Awesome photos Stewart. I always think it's a bit crazy getting up too early on a Sunday to take photos, but sometimes they turn out to be my best images.
