I am busy playing with my new Sigma 10-20mm lens. These are the shots from today’s experiments. Nothing amazing, but I still had fun!
January can be the bleakest month of the year. Having to go back to work, the holidays over and endless grey skies and long nights. I went for a walk in the cold yesterday and returned with a couple of images. They are not going to win any awards, but getting out into the fresh air and seeing a bit of nature always helps to lift the spirits.
I took this in early winter. The light and frost we just right, one of my personal favourites of the year.
I took this on my morning walk a week ago. The raiN has set in now, hopefully the sun returns soon so my walks are brighter.
I came across this Moorhen on my morning walk. I love this time of year, the weather is amazing and the light is perfect for hours on end.
I wish I had taken a longer lens with me this morning. I think the moon would of been more striking. Still not a bad image using the Nikon 35mm f1.8 prime I have.
We went on a paddle boat cruise on the Norfolk Broads a few weekends ago. We had a great time and saw some beautiful scenery and homes. Worth the drive out there. Both photos were taken from the boats upper deck. The photo above was just as we departing and the one below was at the halfway point.
River cruising is a lovely way to relax and to disconnect from the wider world. Time slows right down and all sense of urgency disappears. The paddle boat we were on was excellent, it has a full pub with snacks on board. The captain used the first half of the cruise to give details of things we saw along the way which was very informative. The price was very affordable at just over £8 per adult and the cruise laster approximately 1.5 hours.
See http://www.southern-comfort.co.uk for more information on the paddle boat and times available.
Autumn is here, but it feels more like late Summer. The first fruits are appearing and there are a few leaves turning. Some reds here and there. Hopefully we get more colour … but for that we need cooler weather. I will keep posting as the season progresses.
This is an image I captured in St. Ives in Cornwall. I loved the colours of the boats and this little child playing in the puddles and sand. St. Ives is truly a magical place for me. The small little streets, interesting shops and lovely restaurants and cafes make for an awesome stay.
The above colour grading was based on a scene in Blade Runner 2049. I have posted this one before with a different colour grading, but prefer this one.
