Surprise photo

Lately I've got into the habit of stopping at the lookout/picnic area just south of town on my way home from work.  It started when my back was sore and I needed a little stretch and walk around before facing the drive home.  Now I just stop there to sit quietly and look down the harbour, every day it looks different. 

On Monday I wanted to capture the different colours and textures around the picnic area.

But the first photo I took was of the tree with the yellow leaves and berries (what is it, Chris?)

However, I took the photo before checking my camera settings and look what I got:

Now I'm wishing I could remember how I did it!


  1. Pauline right click on the image and it should say properties. Exif data will tell you what you did.
    The first picture is beautiful.

  2. I love that first photo - the many shades of green and the textures - gorgeous. I'd stop in that place too!

  3. I love both pictures but the second one is very unique. Hope you can figure out what you did.

  4. I am really intrigued by your last photo. I'll explain why another time - Adrian will know. I've been through my camera's settings and I can find nothing that will replicate that effect. i like it.

  5. I'm pretty sure it's a lilac tree Pauline. I will stop and have a closer look next time I'm passing but I seem to remember seeing it covered with those beautiful lilac flowers.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
