#FeelGoodPhotoOfTheDay – Potential
A burning desire
To fulfil my potential
To rise from the flames
ShareMondays2020 – The Spaces In Between
The Shard is such an iconic view on the London skyline that it becomes difficult to find a new way to capture the scene. Sometimes being in the wheelchair actually works to my advantage, allowing me to gain a different perspective on my surroundings, and I couldn’t resist the angles of the bridge and stairs that framed the building. It had been a dull grey day but London becomes a colourful city when the lights come on, whatever the weather!
ShareMonday2018 – Light Up The Sky
I finally got round to photographing fireworks properly last night! This is from a local display held at Imber Court. I took a while to work out the location I felt best to view the display’s large fireworks at a bit of distance. A nearby recreation grounds proved to be perfect. I think I need a different lens for future shoots, something in between my two Fujinon lenses. I was pretty pleased with some of the results though! My lead image is a double exposure at ISO200 for 5 seconds. There’s movement with some crisp detail and nice black skies. My second image was very experimental so I would love to hear your thoughts. It was exposed for 20 seconds to get multiple bursts and maximum movement but the skies weren’t as black as I would have liked! Next time I may have to remember, remember a filter or two 😉
Wisley Glows Again
Playing with light at RHS Wisley Gardens last week. It was only a brief outing as, like so many, I have been struggling with a nasty bug. Fresh air did me good though and I enjoyed seeing some new lighting layouts for Wisley’s Christmas Glow 2017. The last couple of years has seen the canal lined by red tulip-lights but I rather like the cooler tones in this year’s display. Very difficult to photograph the whole scene though, as those wonderful lily-lights are very bright compared to the warmer glows lighting the Laboratory Building. I found it very hard to choose a favourite from some of the images I took and processed, so I chickened out and got the hubby to choose instead! So this is my entry for the Wex Mondays challenge this week and a gallery of some of my other long-exposures and ICM play. Hope you enjoy them!
When the bustle of activity around the dive centre on Swanage Pier has finished for the day, all that remains is the calm stillness of the waters and a wonderful feeling of accomplishment, now that Simon and I are fully qualified PADI Open Water Divers! This is my entry for this week’s Fotospeed Challenge. It’s from a four second long-exposure of the old pier struts, next to where the dive boats moor during the day. Despite the overcast skies I didn’t have enough filters to get a longer exposure! I will have to get some Lee Big Stoppers before our next dive there.
