Traveling Light

conradHaving 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 models. But that left me without, and although I'v...

conradWhat 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? You take out your smartphone and just take the shot...

Dave_Henderson....... 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 getting to the lakeside the sky started to clear, the c...

Dave_Henderson........ 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 hate. Here's what I got, a blend of two images (n...

365 - 12 - Newbiggin sunset.

Dave_HendersonSuch 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 back with something worthwhile. I'm going to have t...

Grainy Sunset

conradFrom 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

conradThe 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. So I did something I'd never done before: I decided...

iPhoneography Sunset

conradWhat 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 the possibility of having a go at capturing a mome...

Day 212: A dying sun

discreetphoton 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. Incidentally, this is the sort of shot which sold m...

Day 205: Afterglow

discreetphoton 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. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 18mm; ISO 320; F/6....

Grab Sunset

conradThe 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 wanted to photograph. Finally the light went, and su...

Day 190: Thrybergh country park

discreetphoton I can tell you, it was much colder than it looked. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 85mm; ISO 320; F/7.1; 1/640s. VC on. Another image after the breakÖ

Day 189: Elsecar Reservoir

discreetphoton 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 even more galling). Itís courtship season for the Gr...

Day 146: The walk of shame

discreetphoton For much of the afternoon, it was grey, overcast and a little bit bleak. I got a phonecall telling me that I didnít have to give my fiancee a lift home from work today, as a colleague was going to drop her off. So there didnít seem to be much point in going out. Shortly after that, I got a ...

Day 145: Back to Eastwood

discreetphoton I donít think that this is quite as striking an image as yesterdayís, but I do like to make the most of these subtle winter colours, so I headed back to the canal basin this evening to see how it looked at the end of the day. It features the same boats, and in the position as they were in yest...
