New Photos – It’s a New Dawn

I discovered this sim recently and I really enjoyed the visuals provided by the builders. It was a great place to get some great photos of. I love countrysides and landscapes and there’s no shortage of those here along with plenty of farm animals and a few neat automobiles.
I’m not sure how old the sim is but it’s new to me and I do hope you enjoy my photographs.
Please fav them on flikr if you enjoyed them
From About Land:

The dawn has come

And the wine will run

And the song must be sung

And the flowers are melting

In the sun

New Photos taken at Netherwood



Netherwood while a fictional name is inspired by the picturesque English Lake District where i have lived all of my life, i decided it was time for me to do a build based on my local surroundings
which i have enjoyed on a daily basis for many years & share with others the experience and views i see every day, which i feel very grateful to have :).
I hope you enjoy my attempt at recreating a typical English Lake District Scene.

The Lake District (or Lakeland, as it’s often known) is by far and away the UK’s most popular national park. Every year, some 15 million people pitch up to explore the region’s fells and countryside, and it’s not hard to see why. Ever since the Romantic poets arrived in the 19th century, its postcard panorama of craggy hilltops, mountain tarns and glittering lakes has been stirring the imaginations of visitors.

It’s awash with outdoor opportunities, from lake cruises to mountain walks, but many people visit for the region’s literary connections; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Arthur Ransome and John Ruskin who all found inspiration here.

Be sure to turn up your volume and listen to the environment sounds across Netherwood 🙂

Note For Bloggers & Photographers
Feel free to blog anywhere in Netherwood, all i ask is you credit the location in the blog or flickr etc
thank you 🙂
You can add your pics taken at Netherwood here 🙂

Sparkie Cyberstar Photo Journey Opening today at SL13B – June 19, 2016

Linden, photography, Second Life

Today I open my most extensive exhibit ever located at SL13B. I’ve created a slide show of almost every shot I’ve published and many never seen or exhibited , many of sims created by artists whom I normally do not put in exhibits as it’s their art not just a sim. My photos are set as a slide show in a beautiful inviting spot, made just for this exhibit by Kaya Angel ,to sit and watch the journey of my Virtual Photography and my growth in it. Please stop by and enjoy the trip around SL over my past five years. Nothing is for sale here , just a virtual visual delight!

The sims open 12pm SLT.

Sparkie Cyberstar Virtual Photographer
About Me:
I bring a style I feel is my own. My photography is all raw and untouched for the most part just cropped , maybe a border and signed. I do play with a few simple textures as you’ll see here and there.
I am a photoshop/gimp illiterate smile emoticon and decided to just work at shooting just a great shot without digital enhancement needed. I take photos of second Life of its beautiful worlds created who need no alteration to me. Sure I use windlight but other then that I would say I’m pretty traditional and my photos are pure through my eyes. I strive to bring out and show SL by shooting my photos as if I was in RL..
Please enjoy the beauty I find in SL.
