    Day 201: On the move again

    Iíve barely stopped for the last few days, what with my recent secondment starting, and planning various things for the local Photographic Society. Tonight I displayed some on my older work, and it seemed to go down well. I was rather rushed though...

    Day 200: Fish

    In retrospect, I should have paid more attention to what kind of fish this was, but hey ho. I snapped this while having a walk around Wentworth Garden centre after work today. It was a short walk, as Iíve got loads to do over the next couple of day...

    Day 199: Farewell and adieu

    Todayís photograph is of a gift given to me by a friend at work. Iíve had a very sudden change of location within the same company which Iím hoping will be a very good opportunity for me. In many ways Iím sad to be leaving though, as itís been a wo...

    Day 194: Catcliffe Glass Kiln

    You can see this structure from Sheffield Parkway, and I decided to have a look this week after my third trip down that way. Thereís not much of note around it now other than bungalows, but itís quite a prominent landmark. And it wonít be there for...

    Day 190: Thrybergh country park

    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

    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...

    Day 188: Angelfish

    I spent most of my day hoping to get a glimpse of a kingfisher that didnít show. You canít win them all. Maybe Iím the only one who saw the shape of a fish in these plant stems. Maybe solitary confinement made me nuts. Clearly birdwatching is...

    Day 185: Crab Spider

    This little fellow (and he was small, as youíll see if you skip forward a bit) was trucking across the floor of my home today. I relocated him to the sink to see just how close I could get, sticking a +3 dioptre on to the front of the lens, and ...

    Day 184: Ridge and furrow

    I like the lines of the field echoed in the patterns of the clouds. Another quick one today on my way to work. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 32mm; ISO 200; F/7.1; 1/800s. VC off.

    Day 183: A cure for indecision

    Todayís title just as easily describes the Tamron 18-270mm PZD as it does my dinner. Itís great not having to sacrifice your options when youíre faced with uncertainty. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 18mm; ISO 800; F/5.6; 1/4s. VC on.

    upgrading lens from Tamron 70-300 to Canon L

    Am in the market for a lens upgrade also and some of the older photogs here in Canada have suggested the Canon 400 4-5.6 usm as very razor sharp lens. My humble reasoning is that extra crisp glass allows closer cropping so the newer Canon 70 - 30...

    Day 181: Starfish teeth

    Detail from the underside of a dried starfish. The area you see here is about an inch across, and was taken with a +3 close-up dioptre bought for £20 mounted on to the Tamron 18-270 PZD. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 270mm; ISO 200; F/18;...

    Day 177: Owler Bar

    I went to Monsal Dale today with a friend from my local camera club, and despite getting quite a few shots that I liked, it was this one that I liked the best. We started our day in a monsoon, then got clear blue skies, before snow, and broken c...

    Day 174: Erosion management

    I visited the RPS print exhibition in Barnsley today with a friend, and from there we headed over to the Peak District. We saw a pair of helicopters making regular trips between two points, and went to investigate. It turns out that one of the l...

    Day 173: Natural grace

    Whilst my fiancee was trying on wedding dresses, I took a look around Sheffieldís Botanical Gardens. This young fern drew my eye, and I spent quite a while choosing the best combination of focal length, aperture and working distance to get the e...
