Fordingbridge Festival 2019


Catching up, I've been waylaid. This year's festival was another runaway success for the organisers. Congrats! I've created my own gallery of photos from the day and you can find it here... Fordingbridge Festival 2019. I hope you enjoyed being there as much as I did. If you weren't there, well there's always next year :-)

If I were a fish


If I were a fish, things might look a bit like this. I took the plunge and bought a 10.5mm DX (Nikon) Fisheye lens on ebay. There's so much to look at when composing the shot you need to spend a few seconds on it before firing the shutter. This is going to be a lot of fun and a valuable addition to the team :-). Photo - inside Bradford Cathedral, West Yorkshire

Resumption of Monthly Gallery


I've decided to bring this back starting with June 2019. Here's a shortcut to the gallery June 19.

Armed Forces Day 2019, Salisbury


I went along to see the Armed Forces Day parade through Salisbury city centre on Saturday and came away with a fairly decent set of standard images of service personnel marching magnificently, some in bands, some not, and a few of people watching the parade. For something a bit different though, I captured this one. Nikon D610 + Nikkor 80-200 F2.8D zoom.

Summer Rain - time for a bit of macro.


At least the rain is warmer now and better when it falls in the night and re-hydrates the garden for the morning. Depth of field is short when shooting with a macro lens and camera shake in magnified a lot. This image was taken at f/10 and 1/500 second and processed in Lightroom. Nikon D7100 + Nikkor 60mm F2.8D macro/micro.
