I’ve been photographing buildings rather than landscapes just lately. It was nice and sunny when I took this picture and the gathering of horse drawn carriage enthusiasts made the shoot even more interesting. (more…)
This is Moorcroft Pool in Moorcroft Wood, also known as ‘The Sanna’, because there used to be a sanatorium on one side of the wood. It’s much bigger now as three pools are formed into one. It wasn’t like this when I photographed it a couple of years ago and so I captured a little history. (more…)
This photograph was taken late in the day and so we have lots of shadows. The benches in the foreground give the picture some depth. Will editing make it better? (more…)
I went to the Oak House in West Bromwich on Sunday and took photographs. There is always somewhere to have an afternoon out taking photos. The sun was bright and so that presented new problems. It was dark at about 1 o’clock and then the sky cleared and I had bright sunlight. You can see the light reflected off light colours and shadows in this picture. Most people stand in front of the house and get a nice symmetrical picture. You lose all depth then. I have the tree for some depth and the angle makes the house look taller on the left of the picture and smaller as it goes away from us. We have a lot of perspective.
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! (more…)
The sun was peeking out from behind a dark cloud when I took this photo. You can just about see the way it has lit up the bank on the left side of the picture. It does demonstrate that comes directly from the sun and some is reflected from the sky. The colours are changing now and many of the shadows are much darker. (more…)
