Hay Bales  
This is one of my favourite things ever.

I absolutely love the sight of fields full of hay bales at this time of year. It's really relaxing. Like everything's okay, whatever awful things are happening in the world, because nature is carrying on in its usual way. And the fields are such a beautiful colour, this warm gold that lights up the day, even if the sky is dark.

This isn't my picture. I'm nothing like that good a photographer. It's from a website I found called Socksoff - http://www.socksoff.co.uk/walls09.html. Fab wallpapers in different sizes, and incredible quality.


P.S. Sorry if it stretches your screen. I don't know how to change it. *hides*

oh - and this photo was taken BEFORE the digital cameras, and there is no photoshopping.... he did it the old fashion way by actually knowing how to set his camera, and which filters to use etc. I admire that so much. I rely so much upon the ability to change things in photoshop later before developing the pictures...

I have focused on photography for about 1 1/2 year now, and don't know how to do about anything. I am good in Photoshop though. I shoot RAW files, which mean I can change basically anything afterwards. I can change white point, vibrance, saturation etc.... everything in a much better way than just doing it on Jpgs in Photoshop. It is really like testing out the settings of the camera - AFTER you have taking the pictures. So that is fun and handy - but not at all as impressive as those who did it the old school way!
