More of nature’s colour


My laptop has had to be airlifted to intensive care….   over the weekend just after I had downloaded my photos from the Arboretum it developed some very weird hieroglyphic type scribble over the desktop.   I have a mac which is almost 3 years old and have never had a problem with it till now….  luckily it is still just within warranty!   Usually when things breakdown it is a couple of weeks after a warranty expires. 

So, until that comes back I am in a form of timeshare on the manservant's machine…… 

Luckily I had not quite deleted my Arboretum photos from a memory card as there is no guarantee they are going to come back still on the laptop and that would've been very depressing!    So here is the rest of Sunday's outing.

We left the Ellipse where the Columns are:  

And headed further down the road: 

And then went down a track which was muddier than it looks: 

And just took in nature: 

Then it was time to head out of this wonderful place:

Get well soon little laptop – I miss you!

  1. Hehe, I am having an early morning I think! Night shift this week, so 6pm start, 6am finish.
    Spring is a very pretty season, but there's something about autumnal colours, and the fact that all of those colours bleed away into the grey of winter. Another favourite season of mine. Autumn just edges it away though πŸ™‚

  2. Stunning photos Emjay! I can't even pick one favorite…they are all wonderful! Looks like a couple of them could be great entries for the PhotoQuest that ends today. πŸ™‚
    Glad your warranty was still in effect. Little blessings… πŸ™‚

  3. We have had quite a bit of rain here also. The last three w/ends have been mostly wet – Saturday was awful but then Sunday was sunny and then the rain came back Monday night and only went away again this afternoon. It's due back again on Friday. The wet is making the fallen leaves slippery on the sidewalks & roads.

  4. I'm sorry you are missing the East Coast autumn – one year we went up to New Hampshire and Vermont at this time of year and it was really, really gorgeous. I really miss my laptop – it is awful really how dependent we get on something like that.

  5. Thank you LBeeeze. I copied my photos onto DVDs about 3 weeks ago and since that time I have not photographed anything "special" but it will still be frustrating if I lose those.

  6. Hi Amy Sue – thank you re the photos. I don't think they are quite out of focus enough for the quest and I didn't take fuzzy and clear of the same subjects to compare. (I only read the quest after you'd suggested it).LOL – I usually find that my broken things are just out of warranty as though they are made to only last that long.

  7. Thank you Emmi – yes one minute things are working and then they are not! It's amazing how dependent we get to be on things that quite honestly we could live without.
