The walled garden in January. We are lucky to rent a cottage in the grounds of a large victorian hall with a walled garden to which we have access and I thought this could make a good subject for a winter project. A further challenge would be to photograph only in black and white to … Continue reading The walled garden in January
I produce a lot of black and white images, probably more than colour, though this might not be apparent here. However a hop over to my Instagram account shows another story. I often find that the subject or the weather conditions suit b&w over colour. However as I’m shooting a RAW image I can produce … Continue reading Colour, naturally
This has been the mildest winter we have known so far in Northumberland and in this final week of February the temperature has been at a record breaking high. So there has been a dearth of opportunities for crisp frosty morning or misty photographs! The ones I have included are therefore unrepresentative of the weather … Continue reading Tileshed Copse: Winter
Totally unseasonable weather here in the UK at the moment, even here in Northumberland. A lovely walk and a picnic on the beach.
Photography this month has taken me to the coast, a local reconstruction of a henge and into the city of Newcastle. The frosty weather I’d been hoping for never really arrived except for one day last week. However, as I write this snow flurries are starting...
I've been waiting for a good frost to fall on the walled garden of our neighbours from whom we rent our cottage. It really added something special to the mornings photography. (All photos taken with Olympus OM10ii and M.Zuikio 12-40mm 2.8 pro lens).
Whenever we go to Newcastle I always take my Olympus OM10II in stripped down mode, less the grip and with the 14-42mm pancake zoom. This compact setup fits into a tiny shoulder bag and is ideal for city snaps. Dusk is a good time of day for city photos with the shop and street lights … Continue reading Dusk falls over the Megabus
I was playing around with a vintage lens and got some interesting shots of a birch tree in the wind. All processed in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro. (Panasonic Lumix G80, Helios 44-2 58mm)
So we have finally reached the last month of the tree project. It's been fascinating to follow the changes throughout the year. It's been a fairly drab month weatherise with little frost and unlike last year, no snow. However there have been some interesting light and skies throughout the month to give interest to the … Continue reading Tree project: December
“When the fieldfare’s flight is slow, And a rosey vapour rim, Now the sun is small and low, Belts along the region dim.” A Frosty Day by Lord De Tabley It's been a fairly dry and cold February, with plenty of frosts and today some substantial snowfall. But buds are appearing on the trees in … Continue reading Project Tree: February
