In the old days of film cameras I’d never have “wasted” a frame by not standing with the sun directly behind me. Now that I don’t need to bother about the cost of sending away a 24 or 36 spool in order to receive 24 or 36 disappointing prints (or 20 or 30 because there were always some which never came out) the sky literally is the limit.

Gorgeous! You are so right about film and shooting into the sun.

    Thanks. I’m glad you like it.

Beautiful photographs. I will post one looking into a setting sun for you to see. Not much beauty in anything except the sun sinking into the sea.

    Thank you for your encouraging comment. Look forward to seeing the setting sun. You have a good website.

        Will do .

Stunning! I remember the cost of developing film. Ridiculous. I love being able to play.

Your gorgeous pictures brought me right back to our walk from Silverdale to Arnside this winter. Such beautiful scenery.

    Hi Leah. Thanks for commenting. Yes it’s such a beautiful area and relatively unknown (compared to Lake District). Some great nature reserves too.

      Leah · 4 April 2016 at 17:16

      We were disappointed that the flooding kept us from the famous Lake District, but Lancashire, Cumbria, and other regions are gorgeous in their own ways.

        I hear that a lot of places still haven’t recovered from the flooding. A friend was in Keswick last week. I feel so sorry for the people there.

          It really was heart-breaking to see people and businesses affected for so long.

Fabulous shots. I like taking photos like this too. I was only thinking yesterday about the old fashioned way of using film! The trouble is, I’m not very good at deleting my bad shots, and have thousands more photos than I should have!

    HMB · 4 April 2016 at 08:32

    Only thousands? Ha. Thanks for comment. I do enjoy your blog.

Both of these are beautiful. The one across the bay would make a wonderful abstract painting. Well done!

    Thank you so much. If only I could paint! I might do less photography. lol

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
