Sandwell Valley Country Park is the nearest bit of countryside to Wednesbury and a popular place for a day out. I often go there to take photographs. Parking charges will be introduced at my favourite beauty spots starting on the 1st of November. They work out to around 40p an hour because the council are short of money. I doubt if it will raise much money after they have paid for the meters and the wardens. There could have been better ways of making money from the park. Forge Mill has a lot of potential.
It’s the autumnal equinox tomorrow and only a month until the end of British summer time. There is time to get in some more landscape photography as all the colours of nature begin to change. We might get some sunny autumn days, but I expect the temperatures to start to drop now. (more…)
Last week, I photographed the Vintage Fair at West Bromwich Manor House. This week there were no events to go to, so I decided to photograph the Autumn colours. I began at Red House Park, in West Bromwich. (more…)
There were lots of events through the summer for me to photograph, but now Autumn is here, there are fewer events and many are indoors. I went to West Bromwich Manor House yesterday to photograph the Vintage Fair which was held both indoors and outdoors. (more…)
There is lots to do on a Bank holiday weekend with various events advertised. I decided to go to a Boer War battle re-enactment at West Bromwich Manor House, but I was early so took a few photos near the river. (more…)
Neodigital Art is about editing pictures to create something with emotion. I was quite annoyed when I took this photo, because the sun had gone behind a black cloud. I’ve used colorize in PhotoScape for an artistic edit. What do you think?
Today’s picture was taken at Forge Mill Farm in Sandwell Valley and I’ve edited it with PhotoScape taking out some cars in the background and I changed the colours to look for like sepia.
I’ve started today with a photo of Forge Mill Farm, I went there on Easter Sunday. It was cold! There is still some snow about and so I had to wrap up warm and try to cope with the poor light.
