  • Jos,

    Beautiful ChrisW, reaching for life, hope for the future


    etc etc


    I don't like the thought of the cold to come, being wet out of the shower, cold workspace with little heating, I've had chilblains in the past...

    I looked for something of an anti-chilblain mental ointment for you, Jos -

    Xanthoparmelia lichen cover on a stick on my stack of light stuff for starting up the wood-burner. Previously a small dead branch fallen from the walnut tree - now warm dryness of autumn looking forward to winter ...

    Either there are fish in the sky, or the water is cloudy.
    At the Wintergarden.
    And on Tamaki Drive.

    Some fish prefer the night sky.

    Thanks for your warmth Chris! Love your fish Lilith, that first image would look amazing upside down!

    Hope you don't mind

    Season of mists ...
    I was supposed to be on another mission, but after the rain, on the riverbank, it was particularly photogenic this morning -

    You may have seen this same view just before sunrise before, but it was different today.

    Some locals think it would be a good idea to de-tide the river with a gated weir, but the ducks and many others would disagree. The apparition in the water is no fish, but a white-faced heron coming in to land.

    A little later, an update on the double window. There's so much to focus on, I'm struggling with the stere0-visi0n. I disturbed one of the long spider threads - the string of light trailing off at the right is the answer blowin' in the wind.

    Rebalanced, allowing the left-side dominance to take over, but still there are gems to the right.

    A blend of three autumny photos, a metal fly the concrete from the rosehip photo and the texture of the palm tree. It's what you do when you don't have a new photo to play with. There was a white heron along the river on the way to work this morning, no camera.

    So this is what happens next after peppers go bad.

    I reckon it had plenty and looked better before! But the autumn blend definitely has something more than the sum of the parts.

    More on yesterday's brief fogginess - through the double window, before sun-up.

    Just after sun-up, the murky golden light befitting the last of this poplar's leaves.
    The solo duck generally feeds with the gang of five, but that dark blob beside it is its best friend, a black chook.

  • Islander, in reply to Jos,

    Re chilblains Jos - there isnt really a cure. We tried about everything as kids (I was brought up in CHCH and the far south.)
    The family remedies were:
    *rubbing the chilblains with your own pee. Made no discernible difference as far as I could ascertain- this was my Nanna's suggestion (and apparently a Scots folk remedy.)
    *rubbling the 'blains with onion juice. Stings. Doesnt do anything else. Attracts onion perverts.
    *eating ginger. This seemed to help. Unfortunately, the only ginger available way back then was dry or wet crystallised, and was hellishing expensive.
    *However - this is now, and fish oil capsules work just fine. I add as much ginger as I want - because I love the stuff. Along with garlic-

    Havent had a chilblain for a decade& a half (and I still live in the cold part of the South...)

    Nice, thanks Islander, we consume a fair bit of garlic ( I gre 100 bulbs this year) and ginger, and have also been wearing gumboot socks during the deepest parts of winter and haven't suffered too much lately.


    Here's another blend, i like the randomness of how they join up, but i have messed with dirt and textures in this one

    Ooooh, so much nice stuff popping up on this thread!

    Ducks and friends verging on Wind in the Willows ; )

    What are you using to merge those pictures Jos, is that something a lazy person could use?

    A very mundane picture here, but so happy about new season mandarins… back to fruitfulness I guess…

  • Jos,

    Wow, wonderful colour, I can smell them from here, they look nicely loose skinned as well!

    I use Photoshop Nora, have done for years so I enjoy playing.
