The Chase

In early spring at Tiddenfoot Waterside Park, Leighton Buzzard, this swan was being relentlessly pursued by a male, for the couple of hours we were walking around the lake.  It took a while to be in a position to capture this sequence where she would get far enough ahead to be out of reach, but only just.

Snake Pass Waterfall

I love the challenge of capturing movement, especially lights and water.  Driving back from Stockport via Snake Pass in the Peak District I came across this delightful sight.

Making the most of a recent work trip to nearby Exeter, a sailing school provided an interesting subject while capturing sunset in Exmouth.

Partners in Flight

Watching the wildlife while waiting for sunset and some fantastic opportunities to practice pan and shoot technique.  Captured with my Canon 70-300mm lens.

Tring Reservoir Sunset

Being a little behind with posting images, this sunset shot was captured 18th Feb at Wilstone Reservoir, changing camera settings to create the overall effect in-camera.

Catching the Waves

A blustery Boxing Day (26th Dec 2016) at Cromer, Norfolk, and low winter sun combined to provide the opportunity to capture these wave shots.

HDR Sunset at Tiddenfoot

Saturday 19th September: Although a handy location just minutes from home when I see an evening sky with promise, without HDR the trees around Tiddenfoot Waterside Park, Leighton Buzzard are just a black silhouette.  After much deliberating I thought the final images needed more detail from the surroundings to give context and be more than just about the sky, so decided to share in HDR.  3 exposures were created in camera (-2/0/+2) and blended in Photomatix Essentials.

Father and Child Enjoy the Beach

Sitting relaxing and enjoying the sunshine on the beach, which was quiet for a summer Saturday, I noticed this Dad enjoying some quality time with his child, probably trying to convince them that the moving water was fun, just like we did with our son when he was this age.  I used a polariser on my Canon 18-55mm lens and converted it to monochrome in Canon’s DPP software, adding a touch of sepia in Photoshop Elements.

Sunset at Tiddenfoot

A few shots with my 50mm F/1.8 Canon lens from a recent sunset shoot at Tiddenfoot Waterside Park in Leighton Buzzard.  I love sunset and sunrise, they are special times of the day and a great time to chill out and just be.

Waves Crashing on the Shore

2nd/3rd Jan 2015, Milford-On-Sea, UK.  I love the sound of the crashing waves. I shot these using my Canon 90-300mm lens.

Sunset Follow Up in HDR #2

The second of my recent sunset images processed in HDR.  I use Canon’s DPP software to create the additional 2 exposures (+2/-2), having shot the original image in RAW, and DPP’s HDR tool.  I finished processing in PSE9.

December Sunset

Happy New Year everyone!  I’m catching up on processing images taken during the Christmas period, and for the first time this Autumn/Winter I’ve had the chance to capture some decent sunsets.  Here’s a couple of images from the first, taken 29th December at Tiddenfoot Waterside Park, Leighton Buzzard.
