Having not used my 5D for a while. decided to recharge the battery in case I feel like using it in the near future. Took out the memory card opened up PS bridge to check the contents. Low and behold there were a load of images I'd not processed from last August that I'd taken on the beach at Newbiggin. Picked out a couple that seemed worthwhile and began to give them what for in PS. The first image is which is the better is in my gallery. When using the Sigma 12-24 lens there is no facility to mount any filters to the front of the lens. To get a decent result I have to blend different exposures. Here is an example of the process.

I'll have to give myself a push to get an early start one of these cold mornings.

An early start. had a bit of a lie in this morning, up at 0545. After a couple of cups of coffee I decided to brush off the cobwebs and have a cycle to the lake. Had the SX50 in the panniers just in case. After a slow pedal along the footpath the...

Looks like a bag of chips at Newbiggin is on the cards today Stu. I'll wipe the dust from the bus pass.
