Loving it! There is just something magical about some trees and the spaces they inhabit. Its interesting how you can almost attribute a certain personality to them.

Strangely took this random photo on a walk with the family today of a mighty tree in a nearby estate.

Selective adjustment to bring you out more. A vignette is a good start, but slightly decreasing the background exposure and a lil more background blur would help separate you from the background. Good cropping.
Now. . .can ya make me a cup with heavy cream? :wink:

The machine looks lovely and I am sure the coffee is great. Thinking of the price of the equipment and the counter top space needed, I am glad, however, that my coffee palate never reached beyond copious amounts of simple filter coffee. It’s quite the rabbit hole to go down into once you get started, it seems. :slight_smile:

Heavy winds and snow (50mph winds, -7°C / 19°F). The front of our house was less than 1cm deep, due to the heavy winds, but walk into the lee of the next house and it was about 30cm deep.


The photo is of the main road at the end of our street. The lee of the bush on the right, you can still see pavement, but it is up to 30cm deep out in the street. 5:38 in the morning.

Another image that looks like a book cover :heart_eyes:

Yes, you have to be willing to spend the money as these machines are expensive. It took me several years to make the decision to buy them (the espresso machine and grinder are commercial grade).

I do love the product though. :blush:
