    Newbiggin.......

    ....... today. A change of subject. A couple of hours spent at the seaside this afternoon. Took the M10 and tripod with me. Rather than bore everyone with a long narrative, here is a selection of shots I took and then processed in tablet using th...

    Typical

    So... I left my camera battery charger somewhere else. But no problem, there's always my phone. I use it as a back-up camera. Right. Well, I broke my phone the day before yesterday, I dropped it on a tiled floor. But I ordered a new phone, and it a...

    Traveling Light

    Having sold all of my heavy photo kit a few years ago due to worsening back problems, and having replaced it with lighter MFT kit, the natural thing to do was to also sell off my two rather heavy tripods, a Manfrotto, and one of the bigger Velbon mod...

    McSkyscape

    What do you do when you see a really nice sky just before sunset, but you're en route to an appointment, you've only stopped to fill up with fuel, and there's something in the way that you wouldn't normally consider suitable for a nice skyscape? Y...

    1 of 52 - part 3 - Wednesday - Wish.......

    ....... I'd have taken the 5D to the lake tonight instead of the compact, would have been able to come back with something decent. The sky was overcast when I left so decided not to strap the 5D and tripod to my back. Within twenty minutes of getti...

    365 - 13 _ Newbiggin sunset.....

    ........ turned out to be a bit of a disappointment after having visions of the location being a bit more picturesque during sunset. At least it got me outdoors to enjoy the late evening light and clean air on the coast, no wind either, a cyclists ha...

    365 - 12 - Newbiggin sunset.

    Such a beautiful evening up here I've decided to have a pedal to Newbiggin for a sunset. Have had this location in my head for a while now and hope the idea comes off tonight. As the setting sun will be in the right place (I think!) I may well come b...

    Grainy Sunset

    From my iPhone film roll. The phone upped the ISO quite a bit in order to be able to take the shot. And despite the use of noise-reducing software, the picture still looks like quite grainy. But I like it. :-)

    Impression: Sunset

    The other day there was a sunset with a totally empty sky (except for the sun, of course), I couldn't find anything exciting to serve as foreground interest, and just didn't think that the intended approach to the subject would be very interesting. S...

    iPhoneography Sunset

    What do you do when you've lost track of time and the sunset arrives quicker than you thought, and there's no time to pick up your camera? Well, besides simply enjoying the colour spectacle enfolding before your eyes, you can't, of course, ignore ...

    Day 212: A dying sun

    Thickening fog at the end of the day seemed to sap the strength right out of the sun this evening. I liked the muted quality of the colours that this produced, and decided that the photograph was best left to a plain, uncluttered composition. In...

    Day 205: Afterglow

    After a minor soaking in Leeds, we stopped off on the way home so that I could grab the last of the sunlight in Greasborough. You can still see some of the rain on the right of the photograph. It just needed a cyclist coming up the trail. Niko...

    Grab Sunset

    The idea I had today to visit a few locations I don't usually pass on my way home and take some photos didn't work out due to traffic queues I really wanted to avoid. So instead of a picturesque route I followed one that didn't have one thing I wante...

    Day 189: Elsecar Reservoir

    I visited a different location this evening for a walk around. It turned into a really lovely evening, and I even got to see a kingfisher zipping across the pond five minutes into my walk (although that makes my last two attempts to find one eve...
