“Jack Frost’s Feathers”

Most of the winter it has been cold and damp, now it’s spring we get frosts. Typically perverse British weather.

Yesterday however I got up early to go out and take some landscape photos and only made it as far as the van. The windscreen was covered in beautifully patterned frost and I set about getting some pictures before the sun got on it. Continue reading “Jack Frost’s Feathers”

Iris

Feeling withdrawal symptoms due to not using my camera for ages and since it is horrid outside I set to with a vase full of Iris and Pussy willow stems in a makeshift home studio. Have to say yet again the Fuji X-T1 and lenses have come through, so easy to use and such good results.

These were all taken in natural light coming through a north facing patio door with a Lastolight white background using a tripod and cable release, the first eight using the XF 18-135 lens and the last two my XC 50-230 zoom.

Coast and Seascapes

My favourite place to be and to photograph is by the sea; the sense of space, of beauty, peace, and sometimes power coupled with the ability to be truly on my own surrounded by the best our British Isles has to offer…. magic!

Here are a few of my favourites.

Dungeness

A community for commercial fishermen, artists and recluses. The dwellings comprise an odd assortment of disused lighthouses, shacks (often built around old railway carriages) and the like. The whole is located on a giant shingle spit and exists alongside a nuclear power plant. It is an absolute goldmine for photographers. I stayed only part of one day but you could keep finding new material if you stayed a week.
