Photo of the Week 26

By the time this is published, I will be back home after spending five weeks in Scotland. No doubt struggling with jet lag and either trying to stay awake or go to sleep.

Although I will be home, it is likely that for the next few weeks, I will include more favourites from Scotland as I edit the thousands I have taken.

This week’s photos are from Aberdeen, mainly near the Tunnels. I have an affinity for street art. It took me a while to find where the “gallery” was but I found it!

Photo of the week 8

Sunday Stills 8

four cockatoos in a tree
Gangster cockatoos 2- after the meeting

I took a long time taking lots of frames of these cockatoos waiting for one to fly away when I was finally rewarded with my battery flashing red.

Once I was home in front of the computer, I was fooling with the clouds – trying to get more texture, when I clicked on a preset filter. It changed the mood immediately and made me think of the Saprano’s. My cheeky cockatoos had suddenly become gangsters! Here the Gangsters have finished their meeting!

Taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 1/1000 f8.0 ISO 125 65.81 mm

Edited in Lightroom and then with a Digital Photo School preset – Splendid Day
