Day 347 - The Gorse is in Flower

Seeing the gorse in flower on my local walk, reminds me of how quickly the year has gone, I feeling reflective at the moment and I am amazed at how much changes and yet how much stays the same as the year passes. I have discovered so much…

Day 332 - New Forest Wander

A wander in the New Forest with my canon 24-70mm lens on my crop sensor camera. The 24-70mm lens from what I have read online is an ideal walk around lens on a full frame camera - but for me it has a focal range 38.4mm- 112mm. I have noticed…

Day 327 - It's cold

It is cold. Out with the photo buddies and it is cold! Winter has arrived and it made me realise that a year has nearly gone by. In January I was out with my nifty 50 capturing the frost, today I took my 100mm macro, and came home feeling it…

Day 309 - Highcliffe Castle

I wanted to try a comparison shot with the nd filters and with a polarising filter today ... so aimed to go prepared and I also watched to capture the beach, some coastal interesting shooting wide. Busy morning planned - I also got to enjoy…

Day 296 - Shooting Wide in the Forest

Out in the New Forest - only one lens, a 16-35mm lens on a cropped sensor camera which gives me a focal length of between 25.6mm  and 56mm when compared to a full frame. The 35mm lens is great for portrait shots, but today I wanted to see what…

Day 279 - A walk in the rain

Today I got to walk the photo buddies in the rain, I don't tend to take many rainy day pictures so today I did with my nifty 50 lens attached. It was wet, I had a lovely clear umbrella under which to hide - however the view through it wasn't…
