For some insane reason, yesterdays upload has gotten me 1500 views and also became my most popular image on flickr - something that's never happened before. Well, within **one** day, I mean come on!! Wow.
Normally, I'm lucky to get a couple of hundred views but 1500? Darn!!!! Ok….so a huge thank you from me to you all. Everyone that seemed to have loved that picture and I cannot thank you all enough! :-)
Guess it was a good'un? lol
Kinda hard to top that ….. but ….. here's the entrance to Dunham Massey in Cheshire, England. It's a beautiful clock tower entrance for the entire state.
I love flickr !
Thanks for viewing - really appreciated!! :-)

Yesterday we visited Dunham Massey, somewhere that's been on our 'to do' list for far too long. And it's not really all that far from us too, typical! The weather was cloudy to start (as you can see) but really did change later with lots of blue up there along with lovely sunshine! Still, it's raining and cold again today so we definitely picked the right day to go!
Dunham Massey was such a great day out with period costumed actors and lots to see and nice walks. Wanna go back again with the 200mm lens to shoot the squirrels and deers… they kept running away from me! Next time. . . ;)
Ok, here's the first pic walking up alongside the gardens towards the clock tower entrance. Hope you like - thanks for viewing! (go on, press L or just view BIG)

Multiple (duplicate) layers applied using photoshop with the first blurred and the second applied using the soft layer style. Then I applied a light source texture and blurred that (again this as a soft layer).
Played around with each layers opacity and then re-imported back into Apple Aperture.
Finally, applied a light Dodge & Burn here and there ... hey presto !
Hope you like !

Although I'm on a break from flickr ... due to needing one as much as having lots of other things to do .. here is a pic from a recent trip into norther England.
A landscape shot using a 20mm prime at Orrest Head, Windermere. Filtered in photoshop and layered a little to give the ground a little more colour and variation.
Plus the seat here is quite apt as I'm on a flickr break! ;-)
