Mobile digital art - from a foggy tree photo
Another shot from the foggy day drive.
I left the house for the first time since Christmas Day on Thursday :) It was foggy, so a super kind soul decided to take me on a drive through the woods and fields near here - just so I could take photos.
Here's the first image finished.
I *think* I used the NIR color app, Dramatic B&W and Scratchcam.
This is what it looked like pushed even further away from a photo with the Glaze app.
I may have missed getting some awesome shots of land mist over the fields at sunset :( but I did manage to capture this massive tree and wreath.
Happy Christmas and belated Yule blessings to all.

The effect is created with the 'Moku Hanga' app.
Yes it's that tree again...
...the reason there are so many images of or based on this tree is because it's the view from the front of the caravan. These days if I manage to make it to Wales - the front view is the only one I'll see, so it's necessity as much as choice.

And yes, I'm still as bad as ever :( nerve pain has joined the Fibro flare party again and I'm still basically bedbound. Thanks to all for the good wishes, sorry I haven't managed to reply or check twitter (eek! It's ages) but my hands are very sore as well as all the other 'usual' stuff.
Hoping I can be back to my normal soon. This is getting ridiculous :(
iPhoneography - trees
The view from my bedroom window. (I spend most of my life in bed now.)
Contrary to how this appears, I live in a terraced house in an urban area about 20 minutes drive from Liverpool city centre.
These poplar trees are at the bottom of next door's garden. They do look beautiful when the setting sun is on them but our houses are built on sandstone and I dread to think what the roots from these giant trees are doing...
Sorry to say I can't recall what apps I used this week :(
Things are, alas, even worse this week than last. Had a very bad (scary pain) night last night and will have to spend some days in bed resorting to morphine again.
Not a happy camper...
That'll teach me to think I can try to ignore my illness and push myself. I really ought to know after five and a half years that I can't do that.
This is twice in as many months that I've been forced by circumstances to try to do things that are now physically beyond me, and payback is...bad. I need to learn to say no.
I thought I had. Evidently not.
Setting sunlight makes the branches glow with a quality of light that's fascinating.
Almost didn't include this one as I'm not happy with it, but it does show how the setting sunlight makes the branches glow.
(Not the real light source in this obviously, I was playing with lens light. Hopefully at some point this week I'll manage to create a version I like.)

The similarities between natural forms are fascinating aren't they?
