Texturing the landscape...and capturing a moment...

Here are some photos of our trusty Blacker 'C' Power-hammer at work texturing some pieces of square bar which will form part of the oak tree screen. 

In the forge the light is often low so I had to open up the aperture and decrease the shutter speed to get the right exposure. I was enchanted by the blur of the hot steel as it is struck by the hammer head.

Avocet update

We've nearly finished the pair of avocets. They have been hot zinc sprayed and weakly etched to give a more subtle colour. Tomorrow we'll laquer them to fix the colour on the darker parts and release them into the wild.

 Not such a rare sight in North Norfolk...
