Lake District Snaps

I had a nice break in Windermere recently, and whilst of course I took all the “usual” photos of normal stuff with people in, that’s not what this blog about, so here is a few I took of the more arty-farty type!

Orest head

Moody view from Orrest Head (lots of running training up and down this “hill” over the week!)

Coniston

A beautiful little spot where I could crawl all over the place trying out long exposure

Capri1

Back when cars were great

Engine1

A bit of an engine with some close depth of field – arty or what!

Engine2

Down with the ozone layer!

Oscar

A perfectly in focus Oscar from the Lakeside aquarium. I loved his colours.

… and that’s the lot.  Musically, I have a piano track bubbling away so just need to sort out some time to record it.  Its leading up to the third Bucket of Tentacles EP, which will hopefully include a collaboration piece with some actual singing by Al over Thalassa (posted here previously).

 

Not so early morning…..

I’ve not been recording much music recently, just practicing or thinking that i should be practicing.  I have been enjoying taking photos though, and have been to Saltwells nature reserve again today and got these shots below.

face

An impressive piece of graffiti.  Nice vibe.

Tree

Probably the strangest tree i’ve ever seen

Tree2

Same tree, different angle.  90 degree branch!

Bush

Evil undergrowth

Sunlight

A different day – sunshine in Clent

I’ve also been working on the first Bucket of Tentacles EP!! I’ve uploaded most of the songs before, but have selected my favourites and have been preparing some artwork – all for my own personal indulgence of course!  I’ll hopefully be recording the final song for it soon.
