Misty Morning Walk – A photo essay

It seems that Autumn has finally arrived in Dorset though it is still unseasonably mild.  It is so mild that my spring bulbs have come through!  Go figure.

The following shots were taken this morning while I was out walking my dogs.  It was such a beautiful still misty morning that I took my camera along.  I am glad I did.

Check out the 7th photo where you can see my daft dog trying to climb a tree after a squirrel.

Poole Harbour Sunset

Sunset at Holes Bay – Poole Harbour Dorset

If you are a photographers using the digital medium you have no doubt been told hundreds of times not to delete photographs in camera unless you can see that are a  total disaster.  Last night brough this home to me.

I was sat at home with not a lot to do last evening just before sunset.  The cloud was breaking and it looked like it might be a decent sunset.  I haven’t done any landscape photography for months so I grabbed my camera and tripod and headed to holes bay, about a mile from home.

i was a bit disappointed with the sunset, too many clouds right on the horizon and too few right above so i wasn’t very hopeful.  I had a quick flick through what I had and was about to delete a load as I thought the shots were pretty mediocre.  I decided to have a look on screen first and was rather pleased with some of the results.  These are pretty much as shot, just a touch of contrast added in Lightroom and a little boost of the mid-tones.  I’m pretty pleased with the results.

What do you think?  As always any feedback positive or negative is very welcome.

I didn’t have my camera with me this afternoon as I walked the dogs and did the school run.  Typically there was a pretty dramatic sky, thankfully the iPhone came to the rescue and I managed some decent snaps.
