Fog Bow

Was out photographing a very foggy Weald the other morning, when I noticed a bow of mist or fog above me.  Never seen the likes of before...

East Head

Ventured out today to one of my favourite spots - East Head.  Wonderfully still and quiet atmosphere and the late afternoon light added to the tranquility.  By the time we got to the beach the mist was starting to roll in from the harbour.  Freezing cold, but well worth the walk.

A reminder that winter has come too early

Leaves are still falling from the trees and we have a foot of snow on the ground.

I am having a mono day

The snow has made me mono.  Not sure why, not normally my thing. This twig had done a grand job balancing all these snow flakes at the end of itself.  I thought it deserved a photograph for its efforts.

Day at Kingston Lacy with Charlie Waite

Was given an amazing 40th birthday present by my wife and friends - a workshop with Charlie Waite at Kingston Lacy.  Good to listen to Charlie and his wealth of experience in and enthusiasm for landscape photography.  Came away with some good tips for light, exposure and composition as well as some options on my camera that I hadn't yet discovered.  Shame the day had to end!

One of the things that stuck in my mind was the fact the Ansel Adams reckoned on taking 12 good shots a year.  Now his definition of "good" may be slightly different to mine, but it really encouraged me to get out there and take photographs.  So often, I get discouraged with mediocre shots; but I guess you got to take them to take the good ones.

Eilean Donan Castle

Spent an evening at this beautiful castle and was lucky enough to capture some beautiful colours in the sky.  This photography used a 10 stop ND filter to lengthen the exposure time together with a tobacco grad.
