I have just upgraded my mirrorless camera to one that is better suited to landscape photography and a new wide angled lens. I haven’t really been out an about for taking landscapes, but I snatched these when I was walking around my home town (St Neots) the other day.
I was pleased to have a quick walk around Dovestone Reservoir on Saddleworth Moor near Manchester a couple of weekends ago. It was one of those early spring days when the wind is low, the sun is out and the clouds are moving slowly. The long exposure worked well here to emphasise the reflections in the water, and the slow moving clouds made dream-like.
Having not been at the coast for some weeks, we took a day trip to Felixstowe to see the sea, eat fish and chips and hear the waves crashing on the beach. I have done a very pastel treatment on this beach huts image as the huts were largely painted in pastel colours so the treatment seemed appropriate.
Just an awesome building. I shot this in 2012. It is a combination of six images. I had to also do some photoshopping, which hopefully you can’t see. I would love to get back to have another go at this iconic image, but am pretty happy with this shot if I never get back.
When Terminal 2 was opened at Heathrow most people agreed it is a great improvement over T3 which is largely replaced. My main issue with T2 is that if you are flying from certain gates, you have to subterraneanly cross the runway – and therefore the time from the main terminal to the gate is 15 minutes or more. I took after taking the very long escalator down under the airport on my way to the Singapore Airlines lounge.
I realise that I have been very bad in uploading any pictures for a while. Here’s a couple of shots of Penarth Pier, near Cardiff, taken a few weeks ago.
