Golden Autumn Days – Photos

I know that some of my friends believe that I only ever post photographs of gigs.  It isn’t true. Honestly!

Just to prove it here a few landscape shots that I have enjoyed taking recently.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Vivid

This weeks photo challenge is on the theme “Vivid.”  As soon as I read the theme I knew exactly which photographs I was going to use.

I count myself as a total amateur when it comes to landscape photography but I do love these shots. I hope you like them too.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Movement

This weeks photo challenge is to express movement.

Movement is something I want to experiment with a lot more in the coming months but here are a few ideas that I had.

The feature image captures the clouds and movement of the sea using a 10 stop neutral density  filter to allow a long exposure time.

The first shot shows the sea breaking against the rocks whilst seagulls swoop around.  A fast shutter speed was used to capture the splashes.

Beach 03 March-4

The second shot shows my dogs splashing around in the sea, again a reasonably fast shutter speed was needed to capture the splashes.

The final shot is of post-punk rock band Slaves.  This was a very difficult shot as low light, no flash and the need for a very fast camera speed to freeze movement and coping with the smoke to grab good focus is a challenge for any photographer and his to her equipment.

Thursday was such a beautiful day in Dorset.  I took the dogs for a walk along the river Stour near Wimborne, about 10 minutes from home.  My spaniel has just had a haircut.  What do you think. 🙂  The other shot is an otter carved from the stump of a fallen tree, peoples talent and creativity never fails to astound me.
