Actually it has been a very wet rainy day here in Shropshire and so to brighten the day, I am choosing some of my most recent “Yellow” photographs. Besides, this one should be bright and cheery, it is my 100th blog post! I always think that colours seem to change throughout the year and often become predominantly one whether this is due to nature or man-made. The daffodils have all but finished now but, these Narcissus have been brightening up my days this week from a neighbour’s garden.

Whilst in our own garden, the birds have been the most active on out feeder that I have seen for ages. They all look very smart in Spring I think. No doubt they will look a little more ruffled at the end of the breeding season.

Meanwhile, a little further afield and the first primroses are blooming in the woods and on…

Downloading Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4

I just bought the update from LR 2 to the just released version 4 of Adobe Lightroom. I greatly appreciated the new pricing model: 76 Euros to upgrade is really a bargain to me!

The new version looks really interesting in terms of new features and processing quality. I’m particulary keen to test the Blurb integration to produce a book (expecially about my latest Southwest USA trip).

Here are a couple of links:

I’ll let you know my opinions about the update in a few days! :)

Hello world!

I’m a creative photographer, a traveler, a dreamer.

I’m always looking forward to find and visit new places to discover, and capture with my camera. I take my deepest inspiration from mother nature, and especially love producing pictures about natural landscapes and peaceful scenes.

I also get fascinated by urban landscapes and scenarios: I love architecture as long as it describes a tension which goes beyond the pure and simple lines of a building.

I always try to capture the underlying and hidden meaning within a scene, a shape, a moment.

Enjoy my pictures!

Cristiano
