Leeds Spring Sunset

A pretty spring Leeds Sunset, full of colour and vapour trails,

A spring sunset I couldn’t resist, even if only taken with a mobile phone. Work put me in a hotel near Leeds. Taking a walk before dinner, this pretty suburban sunset with it’s vapour trails just had to be captured.

This is another mobile phone photo. If I had taken the time to get the DSLR from the hotel room, the sunset would have been lost. As I am learning, don’t be scared to use the mobile. It will do the job wen necessary.

Autumn roses - pretty pink roses

Autumn Roses

It’s November and these roses are still blooming.

These roses are the first thing I see when I go outside in the morning. They have produced a few nice photos in the past. I am fascinated by the fact that it is now mid-November and they are blooming! look up and the sun is backlighting the autumn colours of the leaves on a big tree. Is this global warming?
On the technical side this was shot and posted on my mobile phone.
