The Lune at Glasson (as oil painting)

Lune at Glasson, 27/12/19

Glasson, out on the Lune estuary a couple of miles from Lancaster, has featured three times on the blog now and each of these has been taken in the last week of December — indicating that it’s a nice place to come and hang out when seeing out Christmas at the in-laws. Melancholy though, in late December. There was so little light today I tried cranking up the ISO setting very high to try to compensate, and shots taken during this period ended up with this grainy, blurry look which I decided was not all that bad. Like this one, the reeds look like think brushstrokes of paint, and there’s something about the boat which resembles a painting more than a photograph. That’s my excuse anyway.

Swan-a-swimming

Wednesday 31st December 2014, 2.55pm (day 1,224)

Swan, 31/12/14

And so, the last post of 2014. The last three New Year’s Eves I have posted from some party or other and I did go to one tonight, but this is a nicer shot than I managed there. Appropriate too — it’s the 7th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me seven swans-a-swimming I believe…  Happy New Year.
