Ephemeral Moments…


Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time – Thomas Merton.

  1. You just have this knack of blowing me away with every photograph I see of yours (which I one reason I drove all the way to see your exhibition in Penrith in Feb)…These are stunning and I bet they look so good blown up big in frames. Bravo Helen!

    • Thank you James, I’m always grateful for your friendship and support. I got some lovely soft light at dusk on Friday :)

      • I hate harsh summer afternoon light, and you have picked up the evening light so well .I have hardly had my camera out for the past few weeks – I have an eye injury – my grandson whacked me in the eye (he is 6 and didn’t know what he was doing) but I am effectively blind in my right eye – I have to see the specialist in a couple of weeks but the GP says I may be blind in it. I can shoot (more or less) from my left eye – try it and see what I mean- but I find processing them almost impossible with one eye, I just can’t tell if the image is in focus – so I am posting my old shots until I get it better :-(

        • Oh no, I knew you had hurt your eye but didn’t know it was badly injured. I am a left eye focuser, I have perfect vision in my left eye, but poor focus in my right which affects my DOF perception. I hope it heals soon. Sending you good vibes :)

          • Thank you :-) …I was told by the GP it would heal up, but another doctor say the optic nerve may be damaged..anyway I am seeing the specialist in a couple of weeks so will know for sure then…my friend has a glass eye and he says you do adjust but it takes time…We’ll get together soon for a chat and a walk…I am a bit busy for the next couple of weeks but probably late August,,will give you a shout later on and arrange something…:-)

I would love to know what you thought of this article...

Sitting on the top of Little Mell Fell last Thursday night watching summer slip away behind Clough Head. eating cheese sandwiches for my supper and listening to Band of Horses on my iPhone. Perfection ☀️☀️☀️ #lakedistrict #fujix100t #fujilove #LakeDistrict #fells #sunset #soloadventure The flavours of Autumn in the UK; made an Apple & Blackberry crumble and enjoyed it with lashings of vanilla custard. It feels darker this morning, I just love this time of year.. 🍁🍄🍂🍁🍂🍏 #iphone6 #autumn #fall #crumble #mymonthofsundays Went out on a Kayak today along Derwentwater, slicing through the mist down to Manesty was lovely and swift, getting back upwind was a little harder. Nice blisters and a few good shots, Happy Days 😊💙 #lakedistrict #derwentwater #nicholendmarina #kayak #kayaking #lake #soloadventure Went and sat on the top of Little Mell Fell on Thursday night to eat my supper and watch the sun set on a rather beautiful autumn day. Not a cloud in the sky at all. That could have been the last of the U.K. sunshine for six months (joke) ((I hope not😊))... #iphone6 #lakedistrict #copper #bracken #fells Good Morning October 🍁🍂🎃🍄 #fujixt1 #lakedistrict #thirlmere #timber #autumn On Saturday I hiked around Thirlmere, a nice ten mile leg stretch, nature provided a sweet buffet for me. So nice to be back home just at the beginning of Autumn. #blackberries #autumn #fujixt1 #fujilove #lakedistrict #hedgerow
