Although only light, the rain made photographing at the Falls difficult as we constantly had to dry the filters and cameras. These are taken with a polarising filter, which in the dull conditions gave exposures of 2 - 5 seconds and intensified the colours of the peaty water and rocks.
On Friday evening, we took a walk along part of the Canal near the Travelodge as the light fell. The images are in chronological order and showed how the cloud built up later in the evening and how the moon changes from a moon shape to a pin source as the ambient light drops. The chimneys were illuminated by a laser light show and the fire in one of the images was lit in a rubbish bin by a very large gang of young teenagers out on the town with their bangers and matches! The last image was after supper when there was no longer any light im the sky
We stopped off at Haworth on the way to Burnley where Chris, Paul and I are staying to attend the PAGB Print finals at Blackburn on Sunday. Only time for a quick tour of the railway, old town, Bronte Vicarage and Church all looking great on a summer autumn day
I borrowed Phil's 55-200mm Fuji lens to see how I liked it as it is half the weight of my 50-140mm and hence useful for travelling. The autumn colours are just starting and a helpful Jay perched to test focusing. Overall satisfied though, as expected, not the crispness and contrast of the heavier lens.
Beautiful sunny day in Cambridge yesterday and lots of visitors took to the river. Very few clouds around but late in the afternoon there were some great textured high clouds with areas of opalescence. Certainly a day that shows off the interiors of King's and Trinity chapels very well.
