Web Sight


I caught sight of this frozen web suspended between two metal gate posts – a very cold-looking field lays beyond.

I took this photograph a couple of weeks ago during a couple of days of very cold frosty weather sandwiched between the grey and the rain.

Wishing all followers and visitors to ‘The Lantern Room’ a Very Happy New Year. Many thanks for the wonderful warm and supportive comments and likes; I very much appreciate them. All the best!

    • Many thanks, Cherrie! We’ve had mainly rain and grey skies in England during 2012 so it was like a wonderland seeing everything covered in sugar-like frost! Happy New Year to you πŸ™‚


  1. Hapy New Year πŸ™‚ Mind if I ask a quick technical question? What kind of camera are you using? I’m polling my favorite photobloggers as I am looking at upgrading my camera soon. Thanks for any help! Viv


      • I’m amazed (and delighted) that you are using a compact, your photos are so professional. Mind if I delve a bit deeper and ask which model Pentex?

        Also, do you do a lot of photoprocessing? And which software?

        Thanks for your help. I’m trying to find a path to improve my photography and I really admire your photos! πŸ™‚


        • Hi Viv. It’s a Pentax Option H90. I don’t do very much post-processing at all: some cropping and occasional minor adjustments in contrast and saturation and I use Irfanview for this (it’s freeware).

          A couple of times I’ve needed to rotate an image to make the horizon level for when I’ve slightly tilted the camera. I use GIMP for this which is Open source freeware.

          Really – apart from some of my abstracts – I like the images to look as close to how I’ve seen them as possible.


          • My jaw is literally dropped. The color and clarity of your photographs is fantastic and I have long admired your work. I’m even more impressed knowing that you haven’t spent a fortune on the latest state of the art ____ (fill in the blank.) I will look into each of those components. Thank you so much for your help and for taking the time to write me. I look forward to being a continued admirer. πŸ™‚ Vivian


  2. It is wondrous how you find & capture these shots of webs & wire covered in frost/ice/droplets. Have a creative New Year full of energy, health & more moment of wonder. πŸ™‚
