Splat and I headed out this morning for our usual morning walk but it was so beautiful I decided to take advantage of it being a Saturday and not having to be back for a meeting. As we wandered around the Old Hills we found ourselves wandering along the footpath to Madresfield.
It was a great opportunity to get some different shots with the Zone Plate optic which was on my camera.
I hope 2018 is good to everyone.
This festive shot is a combination of an old Lensbaby
shot of the Malvern Hills (Perseverance Hill) from the common, combined with a Fireworks overlay from Daily Texture
in Topaz Studio.

The gas lamps in Malvern are really pretty and are said to have inspired CS Lewis. They are no longer powered by gas but retain the gas lit atmosphere.
It was an early start on Sunday morning and a quick tour round the common with the dogs. I thought the timing might be right for a great sunrise photo across the pond, capturing the reflections. It wasn’t to be but as we headed back home the colours were intensifying as the sun rose behind the gas lamps on the Wells Road and All Saints church.
I’d thought about a very similar shot before with a full moon behind the gas lamps but I hadn’t thought about this one with the sunrise. I hope you enjoy them.
