Autumn studies no.1


I am passionate about education and I love to learn and inspire and support learning. It's my day job but it's also the way I live my life. Learning new skills and finding out more about blogging is such  a delight for me.

This week the weather has turned truly autumnal and not only the mornings but the whole days have been filled with swirling mists. This is mushroom weather and with that dampness in the air which clings to the delicate spider webs like diamonds and looks stunning. I am unable to walk past a web without admiring nature's perfect crafters. Imagine being able to produce your own yarn and spin your own house / food trap.

I left for work early especially to take photos of these treasures of fog and drizzle for fear that the sun will be out again by my next day off. I could not  bear to miss the opportunity to study the intricacies and uniqueness of each web. The collage above has been made using a few of the new apps I have learnt about thanks to blog school.

Vintique  - for adding the vintage filters, making the photos square and completing adjustments to the picture quality.


Pic Stitch - for letting me pop all the photos together in a smashing collage style


Labelbox - for letting me add a label because I do like to label things

    1. If you have an ipad, it makes it quite easy!I wish I had had longer to take the photos but I did it on the way to work and then today as predicted, there are no diamonds on the webs. It gives me a chance to perhaps work out how my camera works though!

Thank you very much for taking the time to make a comment, it really brightens my day and everyone loves getting a little bit of feedback. If you are viewing my blog through Facebook on an iPad, then you need to open my blog in Safari to comment....such a pain but I can't work out any other way to do it
