Nowhere does brooding gloom like Wales on a wet winter’s day. This happenstance shot was taken on New Year’s Eve as we were motoring home from Anglesey. I’d propped my camera briefly on the car dashboard as we’d headed through the mountain pass to Capel Curig. Then randomly pressed the shutter and so caught the cyclist.
This week at Lost in Translation Paula asks us to show her ‘unfocused’. She kindly says she doesn’t mind ‘happy accidents’, so here is mine.

Terrific , Tish!
Lovely of you, Anna 🙂
I feel privileged.. it’s like sitting on the back seat of your car and sharing this ride. Thank you for having me along 🙂
A welcome fellow traveller you are too, Paula 🙂
It weirdly looks as though he is looking directly at the camera….
The whole thing is strange I feel 🙂
Nowhere does brooding gloom like Wales on a wet day – doesn’t need to be winter! Great shots!
You’re right about that, Sue. In fact I nearly posted some ‘from the car’ pix taken on a rainy day in June on the road to Dolgellau. Another time maybe.
Oh, do show me Dolgellau! I must see if I have any from Blaenau in the rain, but I think they only remain in my mind….
My memory of Blaenau is v.gloomy. Even without rain.
Well, it is! P
Hmmmm… you two have got me thinking now. I have read that Wales is VERY pretty and have it on my list for this coming autumn. 🙂
My partner is part Welsh. I think he’d tell you that what you mean by brooding is actually utter misery; but with a charming lilt 😀
I like that take, especially with the charming lilt. Actually making me think of R S Thomas poems -lots of ‘utter misery’ in one or two of those.
I so often want an out of the window shot Tish. Mostly they’re too blurred to identify. Must get me to Wales xx
Less blurry I find if you shoot through the windscreen. Side window shots don’t work so well, though some can be wonderfully weird.
Love this shot. In the cropped shot, the cyclist could be a real or a hallucination. Intriguing.
My memories of Wales are very gloomy, but I love the colours in these shots.
Shooting through car glass seems to change the colours, especially in low light. It can have some interesting effects.
Hmmm … you too? Gloomy weather wise or nature wise or why? 🙂
I totally agree with you….have a lovely weekend. Janet:)
Th flow light and mood is very nice, Tish. Well done! 🙂
You love Wales, don’t you? 😉
Thank you, Dina, though mostly thanks to the little Lumix digital 🙂
Of course, is a beautiful portrait of the synchronicity face.. 🙂
