Stunning Sun & Silhouettes
I love this picture, the sky is stunning, it reminds me of the song ‘Who paints the skies’ it’s so good to look upon God’s creation in it’s stunning beauty and to remember that he created it all, he has the power to do anything. The silhouettes in the distance are stunning, I like how these have lost their detail and how you can focus totally on the beauty of the sun.
Loving Life by the Lakeside
It looks like the ducks are enjoying life. The lake (strictly speaking tarn) looks cold but the ducks seem to be loving standing at the side just watching life go by with the odd reflection here and there. Speaking of reflection, I have been reflecting myself. I have posted pictures for over a year, yet you would not know that I am a Christian from any of them, and it’s time for that to change. I have never in any of those pictures given the true photo credits, yes I have physically taken the photos, but it’s not my creation, I need to say what I believe, which is that all of the wonderful things that I have posted, are the work of God, the creator of the universe, the maker of you and me, he’s the one who breathed life into us all, into the ducks in this photo – into EVERYTHING.
Wilbur’s Wondering Why there’s Water
Wilbur woke with a jump, it was 5:03 and all was not how it should be, why? Well water was falling from the ceiling, Wilbur suggested that I should get a dish, but that was silly, the dish would only catch the flow for maybe 2 seconds, after wondering what to do for a mere second he suggested the bin, ah yes, that would do – at least for now. I’m pleased to say that the leak is now fixed and electricity has been restored. what an adventure we have been on today.
Bold Building
I took this photo because I thought the colour of the sky against the building was really nice, the way the building is catching the light makes it seem warmer and more friendly. The sharp corners of the building are bold and create a real division between the sky and the buildings. The tree to the right is beautifully silhouetted too, it has a much less formal shape which really contrasts with the precisely shaped building.

Amazing Archway
I love this photo, the detail that I have captured in the stonework is amazing. The archway draws your eye into the distance and really channels your vision. The path also helps to lead your sight into the distance which is really effective. I like the natural colours in this photo, the grey stonework, light blue sky and green of the grass complement each other beautifully to create a calming atmosphere.
Green Grassland
This photo creates a calm and relaxed atmosphere due to the natural colours; the greens and browns work well together nothing bold or bright. The grassland stretches as far as the eye can see, there is just mud and grass. No people, nothing to disturb the view, you almost took a moment to pause didn’t you. Then snap you are back to reality, back in your busy life, no time to think, just doing what you do, day in, day out.
Beautiful Border
I really like this photo. The grass path draws your eye into the distance while the beautiful pinks, yellows and blues of the flowers in the border keep grabbing your attention along the way. The hedge to the right creates a nice border to the photo, it has been shaped so precisely. The texture that this adds to the photo is really effective. It’s so nice to take time out to look more closely at God’s wonderful creation and to really appreciate it. It is so easy to take it for granted.
Calm Canal
The stillness of this canal is soothing, this combined with the dull colours creates a calm atmosphere. I like how there is green foliage dappled throughout the water, it adds character to the photo and adds interest. The swans in the distance look like they are having a party – cute! I wonder if they will invite me?
Fairly Frozen
I find it fascinating how large amounts of water freeze, I know it seems obvious that when it is below freezing for a long time, everything freezes, but still, it is not something that I expect to see. The ice is so beautiful, the grass poking through the ice adds interest and a burst of colour. This is really effective. The whole photo sets a calm atmosphere with the soothing colours.
Spectacular Snow
Overnight it snowed, waking up this morning to a spectacular blanket of white, was a nice surprise. nice to look at, less practical when it comes to things like walking. I love how each individual snowflake is unique, designed by God. Another reminder when we look around that there is someone, a greater creator, who is responsible for making all of the beautiful things around us.
Colourful Campus
I really like this photo, the skyline looking over Jubilee Campus is colourful and the shapes of the buildings are so unique. I love the colours as the sun catches the buildings as it rises.
Wonderful Windmill
I really like this photo, it's amazing how many floors there are, just look at all of the windows! The blue sky provides a beautiful, calm background for the windmill. The grey stonework complements nicely with the sky creating a calm atmosphere. The sails themselves are a wonderful shape, so delicate yet so large.
Glorious Garden Giant
From the photo, you don't really understand just how big these flowers are. They were gigantic. The garden was beautiful and the people of the flower is glorious, I especially like the focus and how the distant flowers are less well focused.
