The Last Light of 2013…..

Capturing the last available light of 2013 here today in grey skied Scotland, a challenge at best!!!  Used my Nikon D90 with a 35 mm lens.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, hope it is filled with love, health and happiness!

I wouldn’t say I hate the way I look, it’s just that I am getting older, fatter, the double chin has appeared and I appear to forget to look in the mirror properly.  So it’s a shock to see myself as I am.   It’s easy when in the throes of a busy work schedule and a family to look after that you forget who you are and the importance of exercise, eating healthy and taking care of you.

These images are totally unedited.  Not that I would have used Photoshop anyhow (I don’t even own it!), just Lightroom to adjust light and dark and push colour in where necessary.  My main computer which has Lightroom on has a virus – hence the unedited.  I am happy though with the way I have captured the light, despite not being happy with me!

Taken with my Nikon D90 with a 35mm lens.
