Wonderful shots. Really excellent with the new mobile phone camera quality. and a belated "Happy Birthday." Wow, a gorgeous day too for a walk in September. I love both images. We jave to enjoy the warm days before it turn cold and it turns very quickly too sometimes. Time goes by too fast, so we have to appreciate everyday as much. Sometimes it feels like we don't have enough time in a day.
I hope you're enjoying your new home. Things are always changing, even in smaller towns, apartments are built and less of the traditional house, but it is very convenient in many ways too. We are in the generation of changes that happen faster then we can catch up with, technologically and more.
Have a lovely day.

Thanks for your nice comments and bd greetings! Autumn has more or less started here this week with rains, hard winds and somewhat lower temperatures. I agree, time goes too fast. The older one comes the shorter the day feels. :-) I was positively surprised of the picture quality of the camera of my new mobile phone. Also the software has improved from earlier days considerably and one can also use manual settings. However for me, an old generation person, a mobile phone can never replace a decent camera, especially what comes to usability. But of course a mobile phone is handy, when you do not have another camera with you.
We are enjoying our new home in many ways. Not all things are at right places yet and some stuff must still be recycled, even that we did it a lot already before our move. :-)
Then you move to A6 now !. Lucky guy. You can make great pano with the included cams. The manual photo mode is funny to use also (at least it was in mine, A5+)
Hope you're happy with it.
Lovely set of pictures. the greenery in the main is gorgeous.
ellelloo (2019/09/11 11:59:56): Hi JMarc,
I am very happy with My A6 also its camera. Well, I have not tested panorama in real situations and it took a while before I understood how to take a panorama with it. I was used to manual mode also with A3, where I used Open Camera app. Now the native camera app seems to have enough features for me. However, as I told to Way, a mobile phone can never replace a decent camera, even a compact one for me. IT is more or less the usability. But maybe I am just from a generation, which is not used to tap a small touch green to make settings, especially in bright daylight. :-))
This is sure a beautiful walk site. For a cell phone image it is spot on. It seems everyone is going to cell phone now and for me a disappointment.
ellelloo (2019/09/11 12:19:08): Hi John,
Thanks for your comments! I guess that I will also take more often photos with my mobile phone now than the quality is way better than before, if I have not a decent camera with me. But that's it. Mobile phone camera is for snap-shots only.
Both images convey the feel of a crisp September day. The Ci wins my preference for the way the golden grasses draw my eye and the great cloud detail suggests coming rain. we got nearly 15 cm this past week...which wasn't as welcome as usual as we were trying to finish laying a patio
ellelloo (2019/09/14 09:34:29): Hi Pat,
Thanks for your comments. Here it has rained lately almost every day at least a little and winds have been quite high. The cumulative precipitation of last last week was only 4.2 cm here.
So autumn has started.
You're so lucky to have the nature all around you despite that you're near or even in the city. So much space and fresh air. Both images are lovely with a hint of fall in the air, the light is different, the colors start to turn, not that obvious yet in the main but it is definitely different to the spring.
We're doing much more images with the cell phone lately mostly for documenting a scene more spontaneously , kind of diary type style. Yet, I love my big cam, I would never trade it for a cell phone but it is a good combo to have both.
Incredible what mobile phones are capable of doing in the meantime. At some times when I am on vacation with my wife I look at her iPhone or iPad to compare what shows up on my back screen on my Nikon D850 and her looks obviously much better as the device's software already did all the post processing work. Obviously when I compare it later once I worked on my RAW and print it large my image obviously looks much better.
For simple images that are just to be uploaded straight from the photographing device a mobile phone makes much more sense!
