January 2015 – Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to one and all. This year I have decided to make my photography work so ….

I’m starting the New Year with a new collection – The Coasters Collection. Sets of 4 professionally produced glass coasters are now available for £25 including postage in the UK. I hope you like them! There are six designs and they are available from my website http://www.tinalearphotography.co.uk/featured.html

Happy New Year!!!

Well, it’s nearly the end of 2014.  All in all it turned out to be a good year!

It was great to be able to visit so many beautiful places and to be able to share the photographs.

Lots of time has been spent on beach walks!

And there have been many stunning sunrises and sunsets

One of the highlights of this year has to be seeing the Northern Lights for the first time ever!  The Northern Lights are something I had wanted to see for years. My camera was all set up in the back garden and I saw a light haze in the sky.  I took a long exposure photograph and when I looked at the screen display on the camera, I could see the bright green.  I was jumping for joy around the garden.  Here’s the photograph I took:

Then roughly about a week later there was the fantastic display on 27th February.  I will never forget this.  The colours were amazing and visible to the naked eye.  I took the photograph below at Loch Brora:

Night photography was new to me and lots to learn, especially on camera focus!  Below is a photograph I took just a couple of weeks ago:

From February until now, I have lost count of how many times I have seen the Northern Lights!

Another highlight of the year has been going down to visit the seals.  It is amazing to be able to sit there and just watch them.  They are amazing animals and seem very intelligent.  Below are a couple of photographs taken this month:

Very much looking forward to 2015 and all the new adventures that it will bring!  There are some new ideas brewing and there will be a lot of work involved, but it’s going to be enjoyable!

Thank you so much for joining in on the journey and all the best for 2015 :D
