A little bit of green

Photos of a very enjoyable bush walk, and an invitation for tips on editing the colour. I don’t always find it easy to get the right balance of red, green and blue in these bush images. Thank you beforehand.

 

Avenue of the Giants

29/10/2018

Avenue of the Giants in Northern California runs through Humboldt Redwoods State Park, which is home to the tallest trees in the world, the amazing Redwoods. It is an absolutely beautiful, quiet and peaceful place, and I feel very lucky to have been able to experience it.

Sky awesome!

31/07/2017

When I was climbing the mount in Mt Maunganui, New Zealand, the sky was awesome! It reminded me of the song Jacob’s Ladder by Rush.

‘The clouds prepare for battle
In the dark and brooding silence
Bruised and sullen storm clouds
Have the light of day obscured…’

 

Eucalyptus Trees

26/04/2017

Eucalyptus trees are my favourite because of their wonderful fragrance! Of course they also provide delicious food for the koala bear.

Eucalyptus oil has many medicinal properties, and is just a great oil to have in your house. I use a few drops with my (unfragranced) washing powder to wash my clothes and it makes them smell very fresh. A few drops on a cotton wool ball, or wipe makes your toilet smell nice and fresh as well.

How do you use eucalyptus oil or any other essential oil? Please share your tips. Thank you!

Beautiful Heather

Encounter during a bike ride through the forest. It was stunning and it smelt very nice with the warmth of the sun shining on it all day.

Be like the Trees

27/07/2012


On this special day my horoscope had encouraging and good advice, and I want to share it with you. It read:

“It’s lucky for the trees that they don’t have eyeballs, so they can’t discourage themselves with comparisons to the bigger, taller trees in the forest or loom superior to smaller growth. Be like the trees.”

Of course, this does not mean you have to take out your eyeballs…

Reflection 2

29/05/2012


These images of cabbage trees reflected in the water look surreal. The subtle movement of the water makes it look like the trees move. I like the diagonal line in it and the shift in colour that goes with it. In the bottom image the White Balance was changed, resulting in the blue colour. It reminds me of the sunny tropics, and is the more lively image. Although, I like the colour in both images, for the Move Me project I prefer the top image, where the colour shifts from white to grey. To me this colour scheme adds more to the mysterious feel, and the sense of calm in the image.
