Day #507

Day #507Title: The View From A Jam
Location: A1, North Yorkshire
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After an enjoyable week in Tyneside, it was time for me to head home today. The journey went well, apart from one section on the A1 where we crawled along at 5mph for what seemed like ages. This was taken whilst stationary – honest!

Day #407

Day #407Title: On The Flood Plain
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: An unexpected opportunity for pictures today. I had a meeting in the centre of Chelmsford this morning, and we got around to discussing the floods which have risen around the town. I had the camera with me (and remembered a memory card this time!) so took a walk along the river banks from Central Park through the shopping centre and out to Moulsham Mill. The light was pretty ropey (dull grey clouds mostly) so I had only taken the 50mm lens with me. Therefore I was restricted a little in choice of images, but this was a view from the A138 road bridge just east of Moulsham Mill. The “canal” runs through the middle of this picture from right to left, and the fences are at right angles to it, although you’d be hard pressed to guess from this view. There was a lovely towpath walk along the length of the canal too, but I suspect that will be impassable for many weeks to come. The flood plain was covered for just about as far as the eye could see.

Day #381

Day #381Title: Charcoal Vision
Location: Billericay
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: I seem to be having a 50mm lens week… I went out for a quick walk this morning before a meeting in Billericay. Unfortunately, I’d left the camera in Aperture Priority mode from messing about yesterday, and the lens was set wide open at f/1.8. Great for decent shutter speeds in grey conditions, but rubbish for achieving any kind of depth of field! Trouble is, I only noticed when I got home after dark. Hey ho, out with the Filter Gallery in Photoshop in an attempt to make some sort of silk purse out of the sow’s ear! Actually, I’m reasonably pleased with the result.
