Snow Edits – My Sunday Photo

I have several snow edits to share with you all this week! I managed to get out with the girls for the day on Wednesday and shared our Snow Day photos. I also took some other shot’s that I’ve been looking forward to sharing though!

Snow Edits – Gull Lightship

I took this first shot of the gull lightship which was fairly dark as the boatyard towers over it a little on the left. I decided to play with the photo and see if I could improve it using the simple photo editor on my surface. There’s something magical about untouched snow so I wanted to show that a little better.

I like this a little better as it reflects the early morning light a little better. I took several shots of the gull lightship as it is my favourite place, admiring the old wooden lightship and it’s history whilst watching the busy river.

This angle gives you a slightly different view of the river looking towards the QE2 bridge.I spent a lot of time playing with it in the editor before realising I could turn it PURPLE!

Purple Snow Edit

I love this purple tint and the snow on the old lightship laying in perfect, untouched sheets. I do think it needs sharpening a little though! The final snow edit is this boat you can see in the distance of the other photo’s. Covered perfectly in sheets of snow including the bouy!

I zoomed in quite a bit with this shot and wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Surprisingly, I was quite pleased with the detail for a point and shoot. I’m loving playing with photo’s again and need to invest in a decent editor so I can try to do much better!

Do you have any lovely snow edits or did you manage to capture the magic of the snow without editing?


Snow Day Fun 2018

The girls enjoyed some Snow day fun yesterday as did many other children around the UK. This was Eva’s first school snow day and when I told her school was cancelled we all cheered! Izzy had never actually touched snow until we got downstairs. She was so surprised it was soft to touch and loved how it felt, collecting handfuls of snow as we walked.

Collecting Snow

The girls quickly got into the spirit of things grabbing snow to ball up and throw and each other. Eva was a little younger than Izzy last time it really snowed so she doesn’t really remember it well. She really enjoyed the chance to play yesterday having sulked at the lack of snow the night before.

Snow Day Fun

You can see in this picture just how excited and happy the girls were to finally experience their first snow day. With enough snow to cover our feet, we decided to wander down to the river and enjoy crunching through the snow some more. Of course, not before the girls had practised making snowballs first!

Snow ball!

We took a walk along the sea wall, taking in the fresh early morning air as it was only just 9am when we ventured out. The girls played along the way, exploring over the steps to see the old lightship and back again. On the way back the girls decided they wanted to pose as statues… Not very good statues mind!

Snow StatuesIzzy was a little more concerned she couldn’t shake off all the snow on her glove to be fair! I’m not too sure what Eva’s ‘statue’ is supposed to be though! We headed back to play closer to home and eventually went inside to warm up.

All in all we had a lovely Snow day, did you?
