A few shots taken in very windy conditions yesterday using a Speedlight 550 flash with my 100 is macro lens experimenting to see how slow a shutterspeed will work and still give lighting on the background. The slowest shutterspeed here is 1/40th so often not quite enough depth of field.
I took my Tilt and Shift 24mm lens for an outing to Ely Cathedral yesterday with our visitors from Guernsey. The dull light helped to allow a balance of windows and interior light. These images needed no perspective correction. A tricky lens to use but helped by the live view facility on the Canon 5D as it is totally manual.
The predicted high tide arrived an hour early this morning due to strong onshore wind so the Knot (top image) followed by the Black-tailed Godwits soon filled the shingle island in the gravel pits at Snettisham. I tried some slower shutterspeeds (1/50th) . The waders stayed at the roost for a full three hours after high tide but eventually lifted and were off.
I usually have my Canon G12 in my bag but don't unload the images that often so I end up with a miscellany of pictures. These four show what the G12 is very good at - landscapes/townscapes in good lighting. Top two are Southend skies.
A few images as the sun set on my day at the Paralympics. I wonder what the site will look like in a few months time. It will certainly be interesting to visit from time to time to see if the facilities are made available to local residents.
