Hello Rosemary:Such a very effective idea and one which is so beautifully presented, as if we are looking at the landscape through a porthole window.
Thank you Jane and Lance. You can see I have been messing around and trying out a few experiments. H's comment was exactly the same as yours, he said the circles looked like portholes too.
Terrific idea, awesome execution! I might try this one day. Gorgeous photos of a beautiful scene.
Hope you do give it a try Marie - I shall look forward to seeing them - if you need any help, let me know.
How incredible. Have you seen my post of this evening.!I took more photos as the sun was setting.. but was so so pleased Rosemary. I have finally got it. "oh boy" she's got it, by jove.!Thank you so very very much.I will be working more on it, as time goes by.The collage you made me is so special. Thanks for taking the time to do that and even write - for val.Happy evening.Love your images and view of your valley.val
I am delighted for you Val, you have done really well, and will enjoy being creative. If you need to know anything just ask.
My dear Rosemary You are an artist ! I tried to make the photos like yours but i did not made ....A disappointment....All your photos are lovely but I prefer the first one .I am morning person , and every day I start my day with hope and smile ! Have a nice weekOlympia
Dear Olympia - I think perhaps you are right about the morning, in the morning you still have the whole day stretching out before you. If you need any help, just ask and I will try to help you.
Hello Rosemary, Beautiful photos, not only recording that scene, but also dramatically illustrating the effects of light at different times of the day. I had just been reading that many photographers insist on getting the early sun for their pictures.
Dear Jim - it is surprising how the light does affect the colours in a photograph quite dramatically throughout the day. I too have heard that photographers like the early morning and also early evening light. I should really have been out earlier to get the softer morning light - this photo was taken at about 8.00am - an hour earlier when the sun was still low would have been better.
Dear Rosemary, I agree with H and the Hattatts that you have created the perfect illusion of a porthole. I would add that the different times of day could almost be three different seasons. You have inspired me to try a similar experiment, but it will have my own twist . . .
Dear Mark - can't wait to see what you are going to do, with that twist of course - promise you will not keep us waiting too long.
Such beautiful countryside! Wish I had been standing right there beside you to soak it in. Never take a scene like that for granted--our Houston home is flat, with a lot of concrete, so the beauty pictured here is very, very appealing. That's why I like to get outside of London when I'm there, and get me a "dose" of some countryside....
Thank you Debi - this countryside is just over the drystone wall from where I live, and it is somewhere that I love to wander. Fortunately it is easy to get out of London and soon be in the countryside.
Dear Rosemary, It isn't just the roundels and the new porthole effects you have created but it is the photographs themselves that are so sensational. Thank you Rosemary for giving me credit (Val's posts) for introducing you to PicMonkey. And thank you also for giving away your secret on how to make roundels. Have you tried transfering them to card stock? They make fabulous stationary. I have not given away my new secret of making roundels because I believe that the honor belongs to you. Looking forward to seeing what Mark will invent.
Dear Gina - you are so generous with your help and comments - thank you.I am also looking forward to seeing what Mark creates with his 'own twist' - something spectacular I am sure.
This reminds me of my "plan" to take the same picture during different seasons...They are so beautiful Rosemary!Have a lovely week : )
Good idea Demie - nearly time for you to take number one for Autumn. Glad that you enjoyed these.
It's interesting to compare how your view changes throughout the day. The evening shot looks so cozy, the colours move off the land into the sky as the sun sets. Just beautiful.
I thought that was interesting too Rosemary and in particular your observation about the colours moving from the land to the sky. I should really have been up earlier to get the very early morning colours, but it was Sunday morning and who wants to be out at 6.30am then.
Love the framing of these serene scenes.
Thank you - glad you liked the effect.
Stunning, I love the contrast!Sarah x
Great idea and gorgeous photos, Rosemary. Very clever. Why didn't I think of that? :) Take care, Loi
Glad you like them Loi and thank you
What an amazing view Rosemary!Have a lovely new week,Madelief x
We are fortunate that this view is by our home, and we do appreciate and enjoy it.
great idea the sharing of three different moments of time...love the effect of the round vignetting too:-)
Dear Jana - this has led me to thinking about lots of other things that I can do which involve time.
Love, Love, LOVE your pictures! Amazing how very different the colour tones are at different times of the day. You captured it wonderfully and made gorgeous pictures that have without a doubt your stamp! Bye,have a beautiful new week,Marian
Dear Marian - how very very kind of you. It is amazing how the hues and colours change imperceptibly during the day, but become more obvious once a photograph is taken every few hours.
Gorgeous, at any time of the day...x
Thanks - we are fortunate to have this view on our doorstep.
Dear Rosemary,all your pictures are amazing!So beautiful landscapes!!Have a nice day my dear!Dimi..
Thank you Dimi - glad you enjoyed seeing my local view.
A proof that it was a fantastic day and that the world is moving! Lovely photos! Christa
Thanks Christa - what would we do if it stopped?
Breathtaking photos! I'm sure it's even more beautiful in real life! Thank you for sharing your window on the world!
Happy to have you join me looking through my window.
Thank you so much for following my blog and I am so glad it has led me to yours. Really interesting posts and beautiful photos. Look forward to reading more.
Dear Jane - you are very welcome, and I am pleased you enjoyed the posts and photos.
Gorgeous, Rosemary - really effective. :-)
Glad you enjoyed them Perpetua - we have had so many perfect days lately, as I am sure you have too in France.
How beautiful to have your very own trio of personal landscape painters create a triptych of masterpieces for you on a daily basis Rosemary. A delicious idea which I hope becomes a regular featurette.
Dear Paul - it is something that could lend itself to many situations. I am thinking about recording a tree during the different seasons, but that is a long project.
Beautiful !!! All those changes ... You are so fortunate to live in such a gorgeous place.
It is surprising how much change takes place in just a few hours. We are fortunate to have this view on our doorstep.
