Aldreth Walk

On Wednesday, we did a walk from Aldreth along Church Fen Drove, round Nine Acre Wood, along the banks of the Great Ouse (Old West River) and back along part of Aldreth Causeway. Aldreth Causeway was one of the major routes into Ely and the site of an attempt by William the Conqueror to oust the rebel Hereward the Wake.

Deep in Nine Acre Wood

We went for a lovely walk with Barry and Sue around Aldreth including Nine Acre Wood. For some of the images (1,3 and 4), I used the 23mm lens, which gave a great feeling of being an insect in the woods. The other images were with a 80mm macro lens with a 2 times converter, allowing smaller insects to be captured.

Using Fuji X100V for Nature Images

About a month ago, I purchased a Fuji X100V fixed lens model as the camera to carry around in my pocket to replace another small camera that I no longer owned. In that time, I have been experimenting with using it for wildlife especially using narrow depth of field and for 'in environment' shots. Here is a selection, the first two taken at F2 through the vegetation and the others at F4 or 5. The hit rate is a bit low but certainly a useful addition without much bulk or weight.

Toft in Monochrome

After a day of cloud and rain, the skies cleared to give beautiful light yesterday evening for a walk on the top fields in our village.

Multiexposure Cambridge Buildings and People

I really like the multimages of New York and London by Daniella Zalcman and thought I would try multiexposures of cambridge on a recent visit. A lot of experimentation still needed but here are a few that I felt somewhat approached my vision of the final composite.
