This is the portrait version of photos for the Matilda Bay Calendar.
There might be others, but for the moment, until I visit Matilda Bay on Monday, these are the photos I will be choosing from. It is frustrating that there aren’t more months in the year
Let me know next week
This will be the cover
And these are some of my favourite photos with the camera taken while being held the other way, and not all will go in the calendar, but…
This is an experiment. I am actually doing them because my younger brother in England loves Matilda Bay, but it occurred to me that others might like them too.
So, not MtLawleyShire, but Matilda Bay with river and trees and grass and birds. Shots of Perth City across the river. And some shots of Autumnal trees
Again, these are the photos I have chosen, but not all will be in the calendar (there really aren’t that many months in the year), & as I have a trip to Matilda Bay planned on Monday, there might be some more to choose from. But this should give you an idea. If you can let me know by next week if you are interested.
This will – I think – be the cover
They are taken over the year, but are not really in ‘seasonal’ order.
This is the other sunset calendar – the portrait one. Again, I have not settled on all the photos – there are not 20 months in a year. And it will, like the landscape one, be A4, much as I’d love A3!
As you will see, some of the photos are obviously from the same sunset, just with the camera held the other way. It’s fun
Like the Landscape Sunset Calendar, all the photos are from Mt Lawley, around my neighbourhood.
This will be the cover:
There are some real favourites amongst these, as there are in the landscape series
The photos for the landscape Sunset 2014 Calendar. To come: (portrait) Sunset Calendar (different shots, often the same sunset) & 2 calendars of Matilda Bay.
It proved impossible to transport Publisher into WordPress – or at least I couldn’t figure out how to do it. I would love to produce an A3 calendar, but finances won’t stretch to it. It will be A4 and the photos A5. At least, being small, any flaws in the photograph will be likewise minimised
As you can see, there are many more photos than months, so not all of these will be chosen (& depending on tomorrow night’s sunset, maybe not all are included!!)
Let me know by Monday if you can.
This will be the cover.
These are not in any particular order (though definite inclusions are towards the end).
& there’s the last – taken last night. The pattern of clouds was reminiscent of bushfire, though I am not aware there were any (MtLawleyShire in Perth is on the other side of the continent from the terrible fires in the Blue Mountains in NSW).
I hadn’t expected anything remarkable apart from its beauty:
The sun above the clouds was all glare:
Then it sank behind a film of cloud:
And then – it sank between one cloud bank and the rest:
leaving colour smeared across the sky
and colour faded, leaving space for night:
And now I must return to self-imposed silence as I get on with finishing the PhD.
I am looking forward to catching up on all you blogs & so is the sunset-lit Fattee Cattee
I had to post this – it was so unusual, so stunning, I wanted to share.
This sunset started out in an unspectacular fashion and continued as though there was a painter in the sky wielding a mystical brush, swathing a patch of sky in swirls of colour:
and here come the swirls and sweeps of brushed on colour as though Van Gogh stepped up:
The swirled about light of the sun!
A different painter stepped onto the stage for the last of it:
I know I said I wouldn’t be posting for a while, but there was this sunset – actually, there have been 3 and I’m posting them a little out of order.
This one, last Monday, struck me because of it’s amazing delicacy:
The way light was split almost on an axis into night & day
& the clouds themselves were amazing:
The colour change change teh atmosphere of it completely:
It looked like a painting:
And pink spread far and wide, even south – this is looking down William Street towards the city with night creeping behind.
