I considered walking around the local churchyard this evening, but got distracted by an unlocked gate (this is something which happens regularly). Instead I ended up in the World War II memorial garden, which is small, but well-placed for the view looking down towards town.

My favourite photographic accessory at the moment is a pair of Lowe Alpine mittens. They keep my hands warm, convert to fingerless gloves, which can aid the operation of controls, and have a lovely velvet finish to them. This makes them fantastic for blocking off parts of an image during its exposure (sensor dodging). You get a graduated filter thatís the exact shape you need, at different strengths throughout the scene. You just have to comfortable with looking like youíre waving at everything in front of the camera while it is attached to a tripod. You get the maximum resolution possible from your lens, without introducing extra flare or chromatic abberation. Itís quick to set up, because you donít have to decide which filters to use and how they are placed. Itís also quite fun, because you have to take a more active role in creating the image.

Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm @ 18mm; ISO 100; F/14; 6s (in darkest areas. Highlight exposure reduced to 1s in places). VC off.
