Neodigital Art | Sometimes, we have to get lucky

CANAL 013

I took this shot a number of times, in the opposite direction, but this one seems better. Would it be better symmetrical? Would it be better zoomed in more? I tried all the different options and this one seemed the best!

CANAL 030

Regular readers will know this is the ‘Sanna’ in Moorcroft Wood and I needed to be lucky getting these shots because this is from the canal side and so a longer walk through the woodland. You have to be careful too, that’s quite a steep drop! I think these pictures are important because the water is drying up; this might be as dry as the other pools that have no water left, by next summer.

CANAL BOATS 015

I was lucky to get shots of these narrowboats and so this is another case of doing your best in bad light because you might not get another chance. I did go back the next day to try to get better shots earlier in the day when the light was better. The boats were gone, they only stayed overnight.

CANAL BOATS 031

I took some shots from the top of the bridge and then ventured down on to the tow path for closer shots. The sky was very cloudy and you can see the way the light reflected from the white sky onto the boats and gave reflections in the water.

BLACK COUNTRY 027

This tree lined path might look like the English Countryside, but it’s very urban. We went here last week and there was no where to park. The only place we saw was a supermarket car park (Wal-Mart) and that looked full. I checked out Google maps and set my sat nav to take me to a gate in a street around the back of the supermarket and found these paths running for at least a mile.

BLACK COUNTRY 029

It was sunny too, but I still had to be careful of shadows and light going straight into the lens of the camera. I had to walk down the path and then turn around and shoot back towards the way I had come to get better shots.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s pictures and will share this blog with your social media friends on Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. There are more amazing blogs on the Home Page.

  2. Hi Mike, The pictures are all great, but the first one, WOW! That one is stunning and certain to find its way into your next art competition entry?

    The Sanna makes me sad that it may not be there much longer as a body of water. I loved the pictures of the houseboats. They were all along the Thames near where I lived.

    I am very happy that your sat nav lead you to such a beautiful path, plus a place to park your car. Tech to the rescue! 🙂

  3. Hi Carolyn,

    There will be a flotilla of narrowboats soon on the Thames for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, I thought that might be where they were going but not quite posh enough!

    That first picture was inspired by the photo competition because the other prize winner took one like that but not as good! I have taken that a few times trying to get the light and the railing on the bridge just right. I like that one, but I’ll keep trying. I did brush a spiders web off, but missed a bit! I shall pin that one on Pinterest later.

    The SAT NAV is a Tom Tom and I bought one eventually. I’m getting used to it. It took me a short route through lots of traffic yesterday, but I did specify quickest route. It got me back to civilisation from the area where Simon lives! 🙂
