Monday Mystery - the Movie

Something a little different this week as you will soon see.
First - last week I showed:


The Weaver, Adrian, Ragged Robin and Kris correctly identified it as part of


a Horse Chestnut seed (conker).
My thanks to those who had a go.

This week I have a video for you.
Some time ago Adrian (Adrian's Images) was experimenting with a computer program which combines two capital letters to produce a 3D shape. Adrian kindly sent me a design which I printed as a 3D object. There are two letter combined to make the shape. Can you see what they are?

One is easy to spot the other not quite so easy though it may be easier on this close up video than it is in real life.

Soundtrack is "Instinct' a royalty free music file from Bensound.

Please  leave any guesses in the comments.
They will be revealed, along with the answer, next Monday.

Red Sky in the Morning

Yesterday morning we went walkabout at just the right time to see a beautiful Sunrise


I keep hoping to see a purple Sunrise or Sunset. They have been seen and photographed recently by others. The purple colouring is a result of high altitude aerosols from volcanic eruptions scattering blue light..

Monday Mystery

Another week has flashed by so here we are with a new Monday Mystery photograph.
First, last week I showed this close crop


which Dave and Adrian correctly identified as part of


a pine cone. The slightly unusual colouring was a result of it being very wet after a heavy shower.
Thanks as always to all who made a guess.

This week it may be easier to identify what this is a close look at


If you would like to make a guess please leave it in the comments.
They will be revealed, along with the answer, next Monday.

How Did She Do That?

I found Penny's identity disc in her bedding along with ...


... the remains of the reasonably strong split ring which had connected the disc to a D ring on her collar.  It must have taken quite a lot of force to open it out that much. My guess is she caught a claw in it while having a scratch. In that case I would have expected her to kick up a fuss as she has a very low pain threshold.

Monday Mystery

Last weeks seems to have been more than a little difficult


was part of


my aroma diffuser. A few drops of lavender, honeysuckle (or whatever you fancy) fragrance oil in 200ml of water is slowly turned to a mist by ultrasonic vibrations. There are also colour changing LED lights. The paper towel is there to catch any condensation drops when the top is removed to top up the water level.

Will this weeks close up be any easier to identify?


Any guesses left in the comments will be revealed next Monday.

A Splash of Colour

Having updated the operating system in the MacBook I was culling some of the apps I never seem to use. One I had forgotten about was Color Strokes so I fired it up to remind me how it worked. It is a very easy to use program for converting a colour photo to grey scale and then manually picking out some areas to restore to their original colours, often termed colour popping.

A few examples

I was enjoying using the app so much I had to force myself to stop.
