The new home for Morven Photo is at Please update your links and bookmarks accordingly.

Flickr Favs: Storm Tree

Storm Tree

I like trees and this one stood out for me on a stormy day - It is on the route where I normally walk my dog. I guess I will post pictures of the dog eventually.

The scheme here is blue green!

Not sure where I will go tomorrow, I will decide in the morning. I am planing to move this blog to its own space in the near future, there will be information and a link from here when I do.

Flickr Favs: Dragon Squadron

Dragon Squadron

Out a couple of weeks ago on the day of the British Grand Prix at a country fair at Castle Ashby to get away from the race (we can hear the circuit from our house) I saw this.

I took several images and this one appealed to me the most - I cropped it square (top and bottom - edge to edge remains as shot) since it seemed to fit better and raised the intensity of the blue to give this backdrop.

This and Rebecca were the only ones this week taken with my DSLR all the other images (including tomorrow's) were taken using my trusty digicam.

Flickr Favs: Rainbow Tree

Rainbow Tree

I thought I would gratuitously post a picture of a rainbow taken from my back garden a while back.

Tried to capture it together with the neighbour's tree when it was in bloom to add interest. Sadly I have a new neighbour now who has chopped the tree down :-(

We still get rainbows from time to time :-)

Burning Bush

Took this sunset a year ago - it has a few technical problems, but I like it anyway.

Flickr Favs: Rebecca


This is a picture of my daughter Rebecca bouncing on a trampoline in our garden - taken August 04. This is he second picture of a person I have posted on this blog, the first was Solstice Jazz - as I have discussed elsewhere, I am somewhat wary of people pictures.

I have chosen this one because she is not easily identifiable and it has a surreal feel to it.

Flickr Favs: Midstream Challenger

Midstream Challenger

This was put onto Flickr shortly after my Scrapyard pictures which were not too well received, so I thought I would post one of my pretty pictures. :-)

This swan just landed when I took this and I was pleased to be able to capture it especially because I had to anticipate with the chronic shutter lag on my compact Olympus C50Z. Though I managed to blow some of the highlights (a sin in digital since they are irrecoverable) I particularly like the reflection - what do you think?
