early evenings & grey tones









these photos we're taken at 5 ish on our way to see the lambs.. as always got distracted by the textures and colours of the farmyard.. I hate this time of year when it's just wet, dark and missable. love crisp, cold and white but this is just ugly.. so it was quite refreshing to take these pictures to make me look a little bit closer and find some beautiful silhouettes and grey tones. also bumped into my dad who was playing in the dinkiest tractor I have ever seen - so cute! at the moment he's just testing it but by his smile think he could be a little bit smitten!

  1. Boys will always like tractors, whatever their age! This I have learned.

  3. stumbled onto your blog through "tales of a junkaholic"...i'm a reader from the U.S. also into photography. i love how you were able to capture the grey tones...i always have such difficulty taking quality pictures at that time of day in dimmer lighting.

  4. That's the without a doubt the smallest tractor I've ever seen! Looks almost smaller than a Shire or a Suffolk Punch!

  5. I love these pictures. Yes, there is definitely beauty to be found on a grey, miserable day...here is the proof. Now, I live out in the sticks, so I see a lot of tractors, but that little one has to be the cutest I've ever seen!

  7. Brilliant, I don't blame your Dad for his beaming smile, how much fun does that tractor look!
    Great photos, I too complain about grim grey days...but no more, you made seemingly ugly weather, look perfectly beautiful! x

  8. Lovely photos, I'm also finding it hard to find inspiration at this time of year with the grey, wet weather, but these images remind me that there is still beauty out there, somewhere.

  9. My Mum-in-law wants an 'ickle' tractor which she can pop to the shops in when she is in her dotage. They only have a seven acre croft so not as serious as your family.
