I went to Tipton Canal Festival on Sunday and that was guaranteed to give me some multi-coloured shots as the brightly coloured narrowboats break up the dull canal scenes. It was quite a cloudy sky but the sun was breaking through at times. Mostly I was looking for shots where I could use a wide open aperture and zoom in on my subject. I used the 18 – 105mm lens to give me a little versatility when it came to zooming in.
My photography, this summer has been hampered by cloudy skies and rain. Next weekend, I hope to photograph a canal and narrowboat festival and so really need some better weather. The forecast is looking better. (more…)
